“If you like it fresh and local”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

This area has lots of dining options nut Capt. Charlies is a favorite of mine and locals alike. It is not fancy and is energetically noisy. Tables are hard to come by and their aren't reservations.

So why go?

It's about the broad and widely diverse seafood menu and the quality of food that goes along with it. From appetizers to entrees the menu changes daily offering fresh, local fish.

Service is prompt and helpful with selections.

“Delicious Fresh Seafood in a very casual restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

After numerous visits to Captain Charlies, I can recommend it highly for consistently fresh and delicious fish and seafood. They have a long and reasonably priced wine list too. You go there for the food. The atmosphere is somewhat of a local bar scene with many booths and tables surrounding the large bar. Be prepared to wait anytime after 6 PM. However, waiting is not an issue if you take advantage of the restaurant's wine bar located next to the main restaurant entrance. I'll be back any time I am in the area.

“Good portions but not memorable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

As I recall, the food was plentiful with all the sides but not memorable vs. the other restaurants we visited while in the area. Nothing bad to say. Wait staff was friendly.

“Superb fresh fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

This is a great restaurant for fresh seafood. The setting is very casual and they only serve beer and wine. But for a simple meal that is always consistently good tryout this spot. In season the wait can be a bit, come early or come late. This is a must, but it IS very casual.

“The place we always look for - Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

How can you beat a place like this. Its almost a funky hole in the wall. It the kind of place where you always find the best food and the best people. We were visiting a relative in St Mary's Hospital in WPB and wanted some good food. Capt Charlie's was a little stretch for us. We got there just before closing - but they were happy to see us anyway. By the time we were all done, we felt like part of the family. Check out the chef - there is a story there - there always is. I had sautéed Hog Snapper and my son had Black Grouper. It was great fun and a great experience. We WILL go there again. When you get to talk to the staff about why you can't catch hog fish on rod and reel and why they have to be hunted, you know you are into a fun time. Give it a shot soon. (no pun!)
