I have eaten there twice, once inside and once outside. The service was good and the food was OK. I was disappointed at the Sushi as I was told it was great but that is if you are not a sushi eater. The other food was fine, nothing at all to complain about just an average place, nice scenery, pleasant... More

I found this Punta Gorda seafood restaurant when i was searching Trip Advisor for Port Charlotte seafood restaurants. We had espresso pulled pork nachos - so flavorful for appetizer and flat iron steak sandwich and grouper po boy sandwich. The shining star was the Lobster Overload which was a cup of bisque, slaw, and lobster roll sandwich (cold salad with... More

The first challenge was to find this restaurant. I found it through tripadvisor but nowhere on their website does it tell you this it is at the back of a hotel ( P and G Resort) and there are no signs on the street. After 15 frustrating minutes going in circles, we finally asked someone in the parking lot of... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you had difficulty locating us. With current park construction it can be a bit confusing. We are not located "at the back of a hotel," hence no advertisement as such. We are in the process of getting more signs installed (besides our large marquee located at the front/41SB of our lot). Yes,... More

We were at this restaurant for a family celebration of life. The food was fresh, at a good temperature and the variety was awesome. Every item and there were about 20 selections was cook well and flavorful. The quality of the wine was good but not outstanding. Overall I would return to try the restaurant, if they can cater this... More

Have visited this fun restaurant in the Punta Gorda Waterfront Hotel several times over the past year. Outdoor seating over looking beautiful Charlotte Harbor, with consistently good food and service. They have a full bar with lots of on tap brews and a menu from fish tacos to burgers. It is a lovely place to chill out and enjoy paradise.

The service was a little slow at first - like they forget to tell a server we were seated in their section, but once we were discovered things went smoothly. We opted to sit indoors because the breeze off the water was chilly, but we still had a great view of the sunset. Local band was good, food was better.

This place is busy for a reason, the view and the excellent food. Start your meal with the decadent seafood chowder, then head to the fantastic sushi menu. I highly recommend one of the 'Category' rolls. Expansive menu, narrowing down what to order is the hardest decision you'll make. My issue is smoking, which is allowed in the outdoor dining... More

This time we took all my wife's family and had just a great time. The meals all around were great. No one had any issues. I always go for the Oysters as they are the BOSS!!! Staff and Managers treat us just like family. Big shout out to Bob and to Sam for their stellar hospitality.

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.
