Service was excellent especially for a large group for dinner. The problem was that they were out of items on the menu. On a Friday night of restaurant week it was surprising. No scallops, for example. My shrimp Anya was excellent

We stumbled on Charley's Crab by accident. If you don't know the area or don't walk along the river you'd miss this for sure. Glad we stumbled on it during our river walk. Food was delicious if you're craving seafood. Service was good but bring...More

Can't believe I haven't rated Charley's Crab yet. I have been coming here for 30 years and it is always great. It's on the pricey side so it gets saved for special occasions but it's very good value for the money because it cost a...More

What can I say; this place has been around since the mid 80’s and it could use a little “freshening up”. It reminds me of a hyped up Red Lobster; only I think the later is cleaner. I would think at the start of dinner...More
