While Charlie's kind of specializes in fish and seafood, it does offer meat choices, including a very nice prime rib. I had a hard time deciding what to order because so many things sounded so delicious. I settled on escargot as an appetizer and then another appetizer - mussels - as a main course. Both were outstanding and served with... More

I eat here on a regular basis for lunch. They do a really good job. Never had a bad meal yet. Had a stuffed shrimp special the other day with creamed spinach that was outstanding. Sometimes the lunch serving size is a little small but that works well for me.

Great seafood menu at Charlie's, and the atmosphere is inviting. Relaxed fine dining. Food was great with excellent presentation, but service was so-so. Three couples dining; separate checks were assessed a 20% automatic tip. That would be fine if the service lived up to it, but the server was not familiar with the menu, didn't offer any advice, and was... More

Amazing food! We had the T-bone with Shrimp wrapped in bacon, and it was very good. Waiter was great (ask for Calem). He kept our drinks full, checked on us regularly without being intrusive. Beautiful restaurant. Wish we could have eaten outside, on the patio, but it was too hot that night. It is a bit pricey, but the food... More

The food was just average. No wow factor. Service was fine. I was particularly disappointed that I could not substitute the carb with an alternative. It couldn't be that difficult. They just can't be bothered.

$20 Alaskan king crab lunch was delicious. Had a turtle cheese cake for desert. Excellent service from Kiki and staff. If you order desert, know that it serves two. I couldn't finish mine. If your only negative is the servings are bigger than you expected... It's a good day. I'll visit again and recommend to anyone passing thru Omaha.

The service was fantastic, but the fish was just eh. We skipped the fish fry to visit Charlie's. We won't make that mistake again. My grouper didn't look like any grouper I'd ever had (it's my fave, so I've had a lot) - thin, wimpy fillets. It was over-seasoned, which was added to the weirdness of the dinner. Husband's breaded... More

A broad menu provides a lot of selection. We had several different entrees and all were very good. Service was great and prices are reasonable. The cheesecake is the best.

Came to Charlie's about a year ago and our experience was not great... But we gave it another try... BAD IDEA!!! Waited 20 minutes for our Martinis because the server said they were out of Martini glasses. Looked around at empty tables with empty Martini glasses, but OK!!! Waited 30 minutes to order our food, our waiter was attending to... More
