“Seafood lovers heaven”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This was our second trip to Captain Charlie's and our meals were excellent on both occasions. It seems that many people agree with this assesment as the place was packed. We got there early (5:30 pm) on a Thursday night and still had to wait 15 min. for a table. But, this is not a bad thing.This early mid-week crowd tells you that lots of folks love Captain Charlie's and once you eat here, you will understand why.
Charlie's offers a daily menu. That is, a menu of the fresh fish of the day. Always plenty of variety and choice of preparation. Fresh is the key word here. Those who truly love good seafood, will recognize the value that comes with "fresh." The location is tricky to find your first time around, but if you go once, you will be back and have no trouble finding Captain Charlie's Reef Grill.
The preparation is also key to excellent seafood. It has to be prepared to suit your taste and Captain Charlie's seems to get it right every time.We had an experienced waitress who understood exactly what we wanted and the kitchen produced our meals exactly as requested.
GO. You will not be disappointed.

“Best Seafood Ever”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The locals told us about this place. It is in a strip mall and hard to find but well worth the effort. Very casual atmosphere and a very diverse group of diners. The menu was extremely long but they stress the freshness of all their seafood. The waiter was very helpful directing us to what he thought were would enjoy. Perfect! My wife and I shared three (hugh) appetizers. Could not have been more pleased. The server knew this was our dinner and brought each appetizer out individually with the understanding that each would build off the previous one. He was so right. One of the best meals we have ever had.

“Really insulting”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

Waited for more than 1/2 hr for bar seat, finally asked and told we were listed as "already seated" then told we were next then told we were not and would have to wait further. Walked out. Very poorly handled.

“Glad We Tried It”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Our first night in Jupiter, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law took us to Captain Charlie's for an early dinner. We were very glad we got there early as it filled up very fast on Thursday night. The menu had a lot of specials and there was an early bird special, but you had to order the dishes with an asterisk and seemed very confusing. The waitress was very helpful and told us that the appetizers, of which there were many on special, were large enough for a meal. As the entrees seemed expensive to us, we were glad to hear that. My sister-in-law got the mussels and she said they were alright, but nothing special. My blackened dolphin fajitas were very good. I was warned that they were spicy, but they didn't seem too spicy for me - very flavorful, tho. My husband's salad and calamari were good. My brother-in-law was disappointed with his seafood paella which seemed more like a stew than paella. The house Cabernet was a good choice and the atmosphere was fun.
