Perfect location along the River Walk. Good variety on the menu. My husband and I enjoyed a nice supper (he had a Caesar salad, I had the chicken). Good wait staff - attentive even though it was relatively busy. Didn't rush us.

Charlie's isn't bad, it just isn't great, and on the River-Walk, you need to be great to be remembered. We ate breakfast, and the eggs were clearly out of a carton, which is a significant culinary sin, in my book. The potatoes were bland, neither crispy nor fluffy. The service was friendly and the atmosphere par for the course. We've... More

I liked the vegan option, with sweet potatoes. Great service, great location! Recommended this place (but just this).

Came here with my family of 5 for breakfast during Spring Break. We were the only people in the restaurant (should have been a sign) and the service was TERRIBLE. We had to flag the waitress down twice to 1) order and 2) later for water. One other table with two people showed up after we ordered our food and... More

I would not recommend Charlie's. We were here on a Sunday afternoon at 2:30. We ordered 2 drinks and 2 appetizers. It took longer than average to get a beer and a soda. We waited over 45 minutes to get our appetizers. The onion rings were warm....not hot. The pork sliders were average. Our bill came to $30 plus change.... More

This restaurant was the first we visited while in SA because our hotel staff recommended it as "dog-friendly". It was easy to find, outdoor seating was pleasant after leaving the cold climate in Nebraska, food--especially cheesecake--was yummy and the dog thoroughly enjoyed watching the people and birds. Our waiter even honored our request for a small dish of water for... More

I had the pulled pork which was just OK, service was just OK. They claim to have fresh cut fries, but I think that is what the package says that they get them out of. We would not go back, too many other options on the Riverwalk.

We were able to sit outside and enjoy the warm weather - lots of music and positive atmosphere. Food and service were good. Just a fun place to be.
