The seafood looked and tasted like the seafood served at a Red Lobster mall location. The scallop appetizer was pushed by the waitress and promoted as being served in their shell. Well, the scallop I promise didn't come out of this shell which was purcashed at a kitchen supply store. Each shell contained only a slice taken from a scallop... More

My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Charley's Crab last night - a table by the window, delicious food and wonderful service. This is a lovely restaurant with complimentary valet parking, a wonderful view of the water and a great staff and great chef. The small biscuits that came in the bread basket were wonderful! I had the... More

This is a quiet, 'well mannered' restaurant across from the ocean in Palm beach. The food is excellent, especially, as the name gives away, the crab dishes. You go here to enjoy the food, the atmosphere and your company

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at Charley's Crab. The restaurant is located in an upscale area across the street from the ocean. The free valet parking is great. From our appetizers through the decadent desserts, we had a great dining experience. This is a perfect restaurant for a special occasion such as an anniversary or anytime you... More

Ate there for a birthday dinner. Called in advance to have specialized menus created. Menus were dropped and the name was spelled incorrectly. Service was below average. We started off at the bar during happy hour and had beverages brought to the table. Upon getting the bill we were informed that happy hour only takes place at the bar and... More

This was the perfect place for 3 to enjoy a leaisurely lunch on a windy Tuesday afternoon. We sampled their mussels in light white wine sauce, excellent; lobster bisque-for those who love such fare, was exceptional; and a spinach salad with added crumbled blue cheese was tossed table side and fabulous. The servers were polite and professional as was the... More

I hate to be a downer and usually have something nice to say. The salad was good. But that is where the "good" ended.
