...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.

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.
