Just got in to hotel after 5 hour drive. Charlie's near the hotel. They were very busy and apparently had a bus tour in. For us service was slow and food was not hot when it arrived. Lovely deck, but top rail obstructs view of River when seated.

Arrived at 3:30. Lunch menu ended at 3. Had lobster bisque and a salad so it was, in effect, lunch. Bisque had huge chunks of lobster and was delicious. We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the sunshine. Food was good and so was the service. Prices were very reasonable. We would certainly go back.

We visit Charlie's Fish House every time we visit Crystal River. It is a solid choice for dinner with something for everyone on the menu. We always get fish of some sort, and it is always delicious.

Stopped at Charlies, my wife had Shrimp and Scallops which tasted good but the meal was not hot, it was just luke warm. I was disappointed that my wife did not tell the waitress but, my wife said they probably would have nuked the meal and the seafood would be overdone. The waitress never checked how the meal was. I... More

The soup was salty. The snails were just average. Good waitress.If you want to sit outside, you will have to wait almost 20 minutes.. There is limited seating outside.Prices were fair. However I would not recommend this place.

I just HAD to get coconut shrimp again and it was fantastic, of course. This is a big beautiful facility and I'm sure anyone going here would have the same great experience we did. Don't miss it!

Have eaten here many times with good results. This past Sunday-things did not go well. Service was haphazard and they finally confessed that another server had taken 3 of our ten entrees to another party. Manager was rude when we asked for a discount but finally took $5 of our $60 bill for 2. Should have comped the late entrees... More

Dined here for dinner on a week night, seated immediately outdoors without reservation. Small outdoor dining deck with fun view - watched fish get cleaned and the pelicans and seagulls fly in to eat. Great fast service, good food. Price was only thing that wasn't the best - was $50 total for dinner for 2 with 1 app and no... More
