If you like a good salad bar, you'll love Charley's. The salad bar is fresh and features a large assortment of add-ins and ingredients. We are not aware of any other salad bar on Fort Myers Beach. The steaks are good too and were prepared exactly as requested. They don't rise to the level of top steak houses, but then again, neither do the prices here. Again the steaks are perfectly OK. We arrived for the early bird, which cut a few dollars off the price of food, but in addition allowed for certain half-price wines by the glass. We ended up with a very nice pinot grigio for $3.00 a glass. Service was excellent throughout the meal.

The salad bar was excellent! The service was okay...I got a fruity pineapple drink that I had to return, it was not good. My husband had the king crab legs and lobster, it was awesome!

Charley's is a long established restaurant and was recommended to us by several fellow travelers we talked to. It is a steak and seafood venue, and known for its salad bar with 50+ items to chose from, the decor being traditional, with some nautical themes and it is clean and well maintained. The greens are fresh and the various toppings and dressings can create any type of salad you wish. There is even several kinds of fruit as well as bean salads and dairy items.

Being early and seafood lovers, we were drawn to the early-bird specials, choosing the stuffed flounder which was accompanied by your choice of baked or sweet potato or rice pilaf. The meal arrived piping hot, right from the oven, so we had to let it cool. For those wishing meat or chicken, several variations of each are available. Service was prompt, the server was friendly and looked after us well. They are above average in staffing as separate servers brought the bar drinks and the food, which allows the primary server to be more attentive to the table. For dessert we had their version of death by chocolate, a huge slice of cake topped with whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce.

A hint, asked to be seated in the area to the right of the hostess stand as it is quieter than the area directly to the rear, nearer the salad bar. Another suggestion, ask for Toni to be your server.

Loved the atmosphere along the canal. Very fresh and delicious salad bar. The kids loved the bread. The steaks and seafood were prepared perfectly, but like all the good restaurants on the island it was not cheap. If you are going to be eating out you definitely don't want to miss at least one meal at Charley's
