They don't open 'til twelve but you can get grub from Ginny's Cafe which is ten metres away. The management did not seem to mind my sitting here. If you are boating, you can see the whole marina from Charlies; just find a good place to view your charter boat.

We very much enjoyed our two lunches at Charlies at the Moorings marina in Road Town. They have an east Indian nuance to most menu items. It was not crowded on the day we were there so service was attentive.

Went there on the recommendation of our hotel manager - a mistake. The food was average, service very slow although our server was very friendly and knowledgable.
We listed the defining noise of the bartender cracking ice. The Drinks were slow in coming. Some of the meals were acceptable but at those prices you expect outstanding.

One member of the party ordered veal medium well done. It care rare and parts were still rare after being back.

Our table for 5 was so large that with the nose conversation was difficult.

Go elsewhere, the Dove if you can get in.

Charlies was frustrating, here is a lovely marina side location, with sail boats floating all around and a beautiful view of the beach, it all seems so promising until you get your meal and it's bland and joyless, designed to take as much of your money as it can, while delivering the bare minimum of quality. We started with calamari. It was well cooked, but they fouled it with big globs of Thousand Island Salad dressing. I then had what was supped to be an Indian inspired Chicken Tiki, but it was noting more than chunks of dry grilled chicken with some kind of faux Indian sauce on top, also in big globs. Your local Denny's would likely deliver you more satisfying fare. And to add insult to the whole affair, the bill was very high. If you want to enjoy a beer or a glass of wind in a lovely ocean side setting, Charlies will deliver. But if you want a good meal, I don't think you will find it here. Try The Dove instead.

All the places that aim high and cater to the tourist crowd are over priced here and this one is no exception. But you know that going in. I didn't experience any delay problems - they may be a bit under staffed but the servers were all working very hard - no island time attitude at all. And all our food was very good if not exceptional. Portions were definitely on the large size for pizzas and pastas.
