Check out the Happy Hour in the bar! Great drinks and appetizers at reduced rates. The food and service is always excellent! Don't miss this restaurant if you are in the area.

Highly disappointing. I very rarely write reviews, however I read plenty on here that raved about the place, so I feel obligated to post an honest review. I will start with the fact that Charley's Crab has a fantastic location and a great view of the ocean. It also has a great environment and the inside is cozy and intimate... More

We were here for a business dinner. The guys ordered some stone crab claws and calamari for appetizers. The calamari was very nicely seasoned and perfectly cooked. Most of the fellows had fish for the entree and all really enjoyed their meal. I had blackened Grouper at the recommendation of our waiter and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We've been to Charlie's on several occasions, but not recently since we only reside in Florida part time. We decided to go to Charlie's on our weekly date night. Our reservations were for 8PM. We arrived approximately 10 minutes early. The hostess Erica, said that we would be seated closer to our reservation time. So we were free to wait... More

My husband and I were in town for my birthday and we decided to try Charley's Crab, after a few recommendations. WOW! We were blown away! The service was incredible; probably the best dinner service we've ever experienced. The specialty cocktails were delicious-- different from the traditional ones you find at every other restaurant. You could really tell that they... More

We arrived early in West Palm and our room wasn't quite ready. After a quick drink at our hotel time flew by and our 2:30 reservation rolled around just in time. A quick ride from our hotel driver and we were at Charley's. We were right in between lunch and dinner so it was very quiet and very relaxed. Just... More

We chose Charley's Crab to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday and we were not disappointed. He had a 5 course meal and each course was a delight to the retired chef. The lobster bisque was elegantly rich and pleasing to the palate. The Surf and Turf complimented each other perfectly. It was a lovely, memorable meal and we will be... More

This place is located across the street from beach. During the day you could see the beach from the restaurant. At night you can't see much from inside. Very pretty beach in this area. We were given the private room for our group and we loved that. The food was very good. Presentation was excellent. My review is on my... More

Had a nice meal with a large group of friends. We had a private room and good service. Food was good i had the snapper Hemingway which was excellent. I thought it was reasonable price for a ocean front restaurant on Palm Beach.

Thank Charlie D
