Stunned by the rave reviews on this restaurant. French in name only. Decor and ambience are nice. Service was attentive. It went downhill from there. Soup was OK but the crab salad might as well have been raw onion salad, the onions were so overpowering that the crab flavor was lost entirely. An included side salad was mundane and drenched...

We wanted to try some new restaurants since we hadn't been back to HHI in many years. Since Charlie's was highly rated by TA, we made a reservation. There are so many outstanding things about this restaurant it will be difficult to remember them all. First, we arrived precisely at our reservation time, and they took us immediately to the...

Dinner at Charlie's was excellent. the food and service both receive high marks. i also thought their wine list had some good values. They also had a really nice early bird special that was a great deal, for the older folks who were with us. This was the best restaurant we ate at on the island. I would highly recommend... More

We went at lunch due to taking small child, good call. Great ambience and wonderful food. She-crab soup was wonderful. Also recommend the duck. Would not recommend for children in evening. Looking forward to going again.

We had another great evening of delicious food, great wine, service and atmosphere. The hand written menu is always full of great choices and I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a night out without the kids.

My husband and I had a delicious dinner here last week. It is important to get a reservation as it is almost always crowded. Husband ordered redfish with a mushroom sauce which he described as delicious. I had grilled sea scallops with a mango sauce on the side. The vegetables were fresh and delicious. The only reason I'm not giving... More

Romantic ambience in a charming setting. Arrive early to enjoy a hand crafted cocktail. Delightful waitress, excellent service. The escargots and pate were a delicious beginning. Nice assortment of mixed greens crisp served with a light champagne dressing. We enjoyed rack of lamb the grilled grouper with mushroom sauce perfectly prepared and presented. Missed the chocolate pot de creme but... More

This was an amazing dinner. We were in Hilton Head for our second anniversary. There was a slight mix up at the hostess station, we were told we had received a call moving our reservation and we could not be seated for another few hours. She seemed irritated when I said I had not received a call was she sure... More

Beginning with impeccable service from Jody, to the Maine salmon to the fresh triggerfish and excellent wine selection, to the homemade vanilla ice cream, this restaurant is the real deal. Very quickly we felt confident that everything about the meal was going to be great, and it did not disappoint. Wonderful evening. Thanks!!
