Our meals were very good, however the service was a bit off this visit. We had the encrusted tuna and the petit filet. Both were prepared to our liking. We enjoyed the view of the ocean from our window table while dining.

We have been there with friends and kids and the service was very accurate, the food was delicious and the decor was very nice. The bill, not so pricey. We'll came back to Charley' crab hopefully!

We have been coming here for years and look forward to getting a very good meal in a nice setting. If you can get a table near the window you overlook the ocean across the street and they also have a wine room to dine in which is secluded and private. The fish dishes are very good....Snapper Hemingway is always... More

The waiter, Chris, was very nice with a good sense of humor. We had asked for a window table when I booked, as it was my birthday, but upon arrival I asked for the vacant table at the window, which I assumed was for us and the young girl who seated us by the far wall curtly told me that... More

I might be more forgiving of my mediocre meal if I felt this was a local, family-owned restaurant. But when our waiter immediately hit us up for Landry's rewards program, I knew the food quality may be an issue. It was. Lobster tempura appetizer wasn't fresh. Entree was mediocre.

What a shame. We were superbly greeted and seated at a window seat with views over the ocean. Great start. However, under and by the table was filthy with used straws and small bugs crawling on the window sill. Drinks and food ordered and to be honest the cocktails were very good. The clam chowder was also very tasty. Mains... More

It is always possible to get a table here -- it is a bit out of the way. On ocean, near Worth Avenue. We had good coconut shrimp. Took the family (grown family--don't take children). I always forget about Charley's Crab when thinking about dining in Palm Beach, but it is always good. Excellent service.

Other than the beautiful view of the ocean, the place was terrible (and more expensive than it needed to be). We have lived here for 42 years and stopped going there many years ago. Now we remember why . . . The service was really, really slow (2 hrs, 15 min for dinner and we arrived at 5:30!). We asked... More

Love it, it has changed from what I remember 10 yrs ago. It did not feel as touristy, it was not as busy or as crowded. Window seating across from ocean blvd is best IMHO. The food has always been good, the bread is delicious, don't over do it. It happens to me all the time and then I can't... More
