Absolutely delicious lunch! Chicken crepes are too die for. Ask for Heather, she's attentive and super knowledgable with where to go on Hilton Head. She made us feel at home and we can't wait to come back!

Charlie's L'Etoile Verte, yes has roots to New Orleans French but is such a true French Bistro, right out of a neighborhood village restaurante such those in Saclay, Lyon, Versailles Villages and so on. So fresh are the ingredients, the bread, warm, fresh and always timely served. We love the crepes' and salad dishes but there is so much to... More

We have been going to Charlie's for over 13 years and just love the atmosphere and food. The menu is pretty much limited to fish with a steak and lamb option for those who don't like fish. Most of the fish selections are locally caught so everything is very very fresh. Our party of 6 each had different dishes and... More

What a cozy cool place tucked into the pine trees near Shipyard. The menu is fantastic and the waitress told us to go with anything that started out 'local' because it probably doesn't get better than that. Well she was right. The 'local' fish selections were outstanding. My bet is everything here is 'as good as it gets'. They hand... More

Excellent food. Excellent service. My only complaint is that the air conditioning was so strong and cold that I could not get warm with long sleeves, a sweater, and a shawl.

There is nothing about this place I don't like. The atmosphere is upscale but quaint. Service was excellent, server was knowledgeable and pleasant. Wine selection was excellent. Food was absolutely delicious. It's not easy finding excellent seafood although you would think it should be around here. Presentation was great. Expect to spend some money but you will not walk away... More

Thank you for the great review! It is true that good seafood is hard to find....on an island? The reason is that the local fish are more than 40 miles off shore from HHI. We work mainly with Sea Eagle Seafood Market out of Beaufort that supports responsible local fishing. Many of our selections come from the Beaufort and Charleston... More

The food was delicious! The menu was hand written every day with different items, no matter the choice it's good. The restaurant is very nice inside and the staff was very accommodating. Would recommend reserving a few hours in advance. Honestly should be #1!!

Our family of four dined for dinner at this charming restaurant. The food preparation was top notch with service expected for the price. Our only criticism, which other reviews have noted, is the noise level. We were first offered a table next a group of 12, but we couldn't hear ourselves think, let all be carry on a dinner conversation.... More

Thank you for choosing our restaurant. We appreciate your feedback a great deal. Although it sounds like a simple solution to put all large parties in one section, it does make sense from a server perspective. In all restaurants covers and parties are evenly spread out among servers. With that said, we currently have a phase of projects in the... More
