Food is good but small portions. Inside and outside seating on the water is great! Live music and good drinks.

Late night dinner on a Saturday @ 10pm I ordered the Captains Platter, the only thing good was the crab cake 😋. However everything else on the platter was cooked in OLD GREASE and tasted horrible my kids didn't even like it. Although that was horrible, I was still looking forward to brunch Sunday. Well another let down...I thought I... More

I'm so sorry to read of your late night platter disappointment. I do hope you spoke to your server or manager, as we would have been happy to correct this. Our buffet pricing is geared toward in-house only. While I'm sure that most people would only take a single serving in a to-go container, many would not and it wouldn't... More

Like every other facility in our brief stay in the area, it's seen better days. Reasonably clean and pleasant service, but the drinks were watered down, the Cajun crawfish tasted frozen and buttered but not Cajun, and the rest of the food was just okay.

Hello and thank you for your review. While I am disappointed that you did not enjoy your visit, I can assure you that our drinks are not watered down (I've had a couple guests who commented that their drinks seemed strong, but never watered down) and our entrees are made fresh to order. -Kristine More

From Sushi, to a great menu featuring many seafood dishes, also accommodates the ones who prefer other meat dishes! Overlooking the water is a bonus, while enjoying a drink from a well stocked bar

Went with the expectation the sushi was well made there according to several friends. Found the sushi mediocre also had the seaweed salad again just so so. Will continue my search for good sushi in SWF

I'm sorry we didn't fulfill your expectations or your friend's recommendations. I'm not able to tell from your review what you didn't like about your sushi or which of the 44 sushi selections you ordered. We listen to our customers and are always happy to make improvements where need be, but we would need something more to go by. Thank... More

The Bar is seat yourself so we got lucky and have a few minutes found 2 seats at the bar. Its outside, practically right on the water! They had the shades down when we... More

Thank you for your review. We have over 90 menu options. Glad you tried the Smoked Gouda Chicken Mac & Cheese and it passed the test! We are directly on the water and our patio is entirely open for great views! We hope you'll visit us again. -Kristine More

I think it is a little over rated. But they pack them in during tourist season. Burger and fries for $9.00 was ample but if it came also with the side of slaw also would have given better value for food. The attracftion really is the location with the outside patio overlooking the harbour which is nice. The blackened chicken... More

We go here in a regular basis. Not quite as busy as many other places during season. My kids love the kids mac n cheese, spinach and artichoke dip is great, better than restaurants in fishermans village. My kids love to go Pokémon hunting in the park after a meal as well.

Description
Hurricane Charley's Raw Bar & Grill, Punta Gorda's newest waterfront restaurant opened in January of 2014 in the PG Waterfront Hotel on Charlotte Harbor. The sister restaurant to Dean's South of the Border, Charley's offers a full bar on the scenic deck with the best sunsets in Charlotte Harbor. Our menu is eclectic ranging from fresh seafood including gumbo, crayfish, Ipswich clams, oysters and scallops to steaks, sandwiches, burgers, salads & delicious desserts. We offer inside dining or harborside with entertainment seven days a week. Hurricane Charley's is more than a restaurant, it is a historic picture of the 2004 hurricane which devastated Charlotte Harbor, our walls tell the story of a community effort to recover and triumph over the 2004 hurricane which leveled our city.
