Description: Hurricane Charley's Raw Bar & Grill, Punta Gorda's newest waterfront restaurant opened in January of 2014 in the PG Waterfront Hotel on Charlotte Harbor. The sister restaurant to Dean's South of the Border, Charley's offers a full bar on the scenic deck with the best sunsets in Charlotte Harbor. Our menu is eclectic ranging from fresh seafood including gumbo, crayfish, Ipswich clams, oysters and scallops to steaks, sandwiches, burgers, salads & delicious desserts. We offer inside dining or harborside with entertainment seven days a week. Hurricane Charley's is more than a restaurant, it is a historic picture of the 2004 hurricane which devastated Charlotte Harbor, our walls tell the story of a community effort to recover and triumph over the 2004 hurricane which leveled our city.

“Wasn't That A Party ???”

Tried this restaurant for lunch and went back for dinner with friends Friday night. What a night------ great food, beautiful sunset and the best band we have heard in ages! The Kollections were fantastic! We are heading north but we will be back next year as we so enjoyed the food, service and
entertainment. Meredith at the bar was excellent.

“manager is horrible!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

We went to eat the other night at hurricane charleys. Our server was great. I believe her name was Melissa. There was a woman manager didn't get her name but oriental. The way she was talking to the staff was horrible. I will not continue to come here if you are going to allow managers to talk to staff and patrons in that manner!

To my knowledge we don't have an oriental manager, I'm curious as to who you overhead?

“great venue on the water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Bit chilly on the patio last night but that was our election to stay outside. Service was great and very friendly. From being seated, to having our drink order taken and delivered, food ordered and served, it was all great. Very extensive menu and all four of us were pleased with our choices. Definitely recommend. The only complaint that I had is their telephone system. After three days of trying to call, finally sent an email. That worked.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and for your kind words. We have a breathtaking view of Charlotte Harbor and are working hard to make Charley's the best it can be. We are VERY frustrated with the phones as well, after waiting 6 weeks for one vendor (we won't mention any names) we turned to another source and are waiting for them as well. There appears to be some issues with the existing lines in the hotel. We hope to have it resolved very soon. Sandy

“Don't waste your time and money.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

Ate dinner there last Sunday after meeting a friend from the air show. Waited at least 45 minutes for a table even though the Resturant was half empty. Bar service ok- but why wait when the Resturant is half empty? Finally seated but food took forever to get and our waiter was worthless and on several occasions had to ask personel for water and bread. I reality I should not have left a tip for the waiter. You don't have to ask us for another chance asi won't come back! Very poor service and understaffing drive patrons away not bring them back. If your business was in Sarasota where I live you would already be gone.

We understand your frustration and even though you won't return we would like to apologize, every guest experience is important & a learning experience. We don't routinely bring water or bread to the tables as many guests do not want either, your server should ask. Many restaurants no longer routinely bring water in an effort to save resources. If your wait was 45 minutes your server should have told you prior to seating, this way you can choose to wait or to find another venue, we've recently addressed this issue at our last staff meeting. Although the restaurant is 1/2 empty we are a very large venue & seat approx. 200 and staff for what we approximate will be seated on that day. We cannot seat more at one time than the kitchen can handle or serve time will be delayed. It's difficult to judge coming out of season how busy a restaurant will be, we do our best to anticipate and staff accordingly. We thank you for taking the time to write this review. We have been open less than 3 months and appreciate all feedback. Sandy
