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.

We had been to Charley's Crab a couple of years ago and absolutely enjoyed the food and experience. Things have changed, particularly relating to the level of service. We waited quite a while for our server to reach our table, had to ask more than once for glasses of water, and didn't receive warm bread when it finally arrived. The... More

Staff very accommodating; it is across from the beach; sitting by the window you see people going to beach you cannot actually see beach while sitting; but that was ok; we did walk out to beach while there; service great; food was bland, but fine

Attended a Birthday Party for 12 people; had a private room. Service was excellent. Appetizers were also excellent. Several items were not that good. Lobster stuffed was tough and over cooked. Lobster omelette looked like too much egg; not enough lobster. Cold soup was too sweet and thick. Overall the brunch was good. The restaurant smelled as though it needed... More

Went with another couple who has eaten here frequently. The service was excellent (thank you Mack) and all the items we ordered were excellent! The crab and avocado appetizer was stunning to look at and delicious to eat. We all had different entree - mine being the mixed seafood of crab cake, grilled shrimp and grilled salmon. We are staying... More

I love the yellow fin fish here perfectly fried ( no batter) with beans and rice! The mussels are fantastic too. Actually, I love all the food and desserts here and make it a point to come at least several times during my visits to Singer Island just a few miles away.

My friend and I decided to go for a light bite as we'd been 'over enjoying' the good food in Palm Beach. We decided to try the ocean view bar at Charleys Crab and we were delighted with our experience. It's a small but very contemporary and elegant bar with windows looking out at the ocean, beautiful. It was a... More
