Had family from Ohio and we had a late lunch. Everyone loved the food. They had a performer singing songs by the tables outside. We had a great time. We ordered crab cake sandwiches, shrimp scampi all good food!

Nice restaurant with nice views of the water. We each tried something different and all three entrees were delicious and served hot and fast. We had Cajun jambalaya, shrimp and crawfish and shrimp scampi. Parking is free and you can walk along the pier afterwards...More

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.
