My favorite first thing to do when I get here. Try the fried pickles, they are the best I've ever had, anywhere.

Ate here a few different times during my trip. Food was excellent every time. The servers and bar tenders were great, never let the glass run dry. Atmosphere is nice. Prices are reasonable too. Military gets 20% off food.

I love the BBQ aroma of walking near Charlie macs. The restaurant was clean, although there was a hen and one of her chicks looking for crumbs. The service was very good. I loved the BBQ flavor of the food.

If you know me (you probably don't) I love me some BBQ! I enjoyed my pulled pork sandwich and fries. The sauces they offered were just ok at best. The service was friendly and they were on the spot with our needs. As we were...More

Charlie Mac's is the winner of the 2013 Key Plaza Memorial Day BBQ Cook Off and serves up the best island-flavored BBQ in Key West. Inspired by the sizzling pits of South Carolina, Charlie Mac’s is Pat Croce’s latest Mile Zero local hot spot. Tap into two dozen brews. Order up an icy cocktail. Kick back to live music. Enjoy the great vibes right next to the Green Parrot Bar. And get lively with the Southernmost Hurricane Club on game day at the new official Key West home of the University of Miami Hurricanes.
