The food was either reheated or pre-prepared: the mussels were like rubber soaked in a tasteless soup. The crab advocado was clearly stored in the fridge probably from the weekend before. Even the coffee seemed heated from micro wave as you could burn your lips on this. Furniture looked very used as well...the place needs a full rebranding exercise!

We go for early dinner to enjoy the water scene. Jason was our server tonight and treated us exceptionally well. Had encrusted tuna this trip. Always a pleasant trip

...and sit in the front dining room before sunset so you can enjoy the beautiful ocean views. Reservations are accepted. We had a party of eight and we had a round table so conversation was easy. Our waiter was very professional and was near by, but did not hover. We ordered a variety of starters. The gazpacho is one of... More

I love white tablecloths but there was a large rip right where the silverware was. You would think whoever was setting the table would see this. Crab cakes had good flavor but were by no means "lump" crab cakes. Great view of the ocean across the street. but have had better views. Wait staff was good!!

We have been to Charley's Crab many times since the last 7 years but I think this is the last time for us! The food quality of this restaurant is just getting way far below par! What a shame! So long..... Charley's Crab!

The food was quite excellent. We were there for restaurant month at $35/meal. The wines are a bit pricey. Service was excellent and there meals will fill you up. There are early bird specials.

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.
