Not only is the food fantastic, but Ross has a fine wine selection. There is always a wait. Good places have most customers. Great opportunity to have a drink and schmooze. You never know who you will run into. Our three teens all love this restaurant. We have been known to stop by to check out a dessert...always good. Love the staff. Love the food. Best duck and quail around.

My cousin lives on Singer Island and frequents Captain Charlie's. She has perfect taste in everything, and her restaurant choice was proof. Our dinner was absolutely wonderful. We had 3 or 4 appetizers, lots of wine & champagne, the service was friendly and professional and the FOOD! I've never had a meal where each bite was better than the last. The bill was about $90. I can hardly wait to take my husband there next week for our anniversary.

Unfortunately, after getting tremendous and well deserved press a few years ago, this place has become a victim of its own success. Crowded every night of the week, the perfectly prepared fish they used to serve is a thing of the past. Fried fish is overdone, cold french fries, insipid vegs and even working full tilt the food comes out slowly. Staff is brusque and unhelpful. I've visited several times in the last couple of years, each time hoping the last visit's mediocrity was a fluke. Alas, it's now the norm. I'd say skip it.

Order the whole fish. You won't regret it. Tons of food, and oh so delicious! You may have to wait a bit for a table, but it's well worth it. Just hop over 3 doors down to the bar and have a drink while you wait.

The Reef Grill has two locations. One is Captain Charlie's Reef Grill located on the corner and one is Captain Charlie's 3 Doors Up lunch restaurant which is only open from 11:30 to 3:00 and located three doors up from the Reef Grill. We eat at "3 doors up" which is a little whole-in-the-wall grill but has wonderful food. I had Paella our last visit and it was perfect. The Paella is enough for two people, a variety of seafood, chicken and sausage done to perfection. The rice was firm and the flavor was wonderful. Hubby enjoyed his bouillabaisse and bites of my Paella. We left stuffed and happy. The restaurant is narrow and long, the decor is beach themed but eclectic, dress is casual, the kitchen is along one side and seating along the other. Our server has always been the same woman, friendly, but constantly moving. She does make sure you have everything you need each time she passes by and when the restaurant is less busy she stops to chat. You get a complimentary dish of peppery but yummy coleslaw, very creamy, to start your meal. We visit every time we are in Juno Beach and have never found anything we don't like. It's a great find if you are looking for a seafood place that has plenty of non-fried offerings of seafood and the variety of the menu is exceptional.
