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.

“Office Lunch”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

The office staff of SSRC celebrated Administrative Assistant Day with lunch at Hurricane Charley's Raw Bar and Grill. The atmosphere and location, we sat outside, overlooking Charlotte Harbor was top notch. Our waiter, fresh out of the northern cold, was one of the friendliest, most knowledgeable new comers to Charlotte County I have met in a long time. Would definitely go again. Our waiter's name was Tony. If you go ask for one of his tables and it will make your visit more enjoyable.

“Good for a beer, not for a family meal.”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

As locals, and working with the public we are often asked about restaurant recommendations. This is a new place, so we decided to give it a try. We arrived and were told it would be a 15 minute wait, no big deal, except we could see many, many empty tables. After our obligatory 15 minutes wait, we were finally seated, then reseated at a different table. Service was slow, and when our food arrived it was not hot, only moderately warm. Fish was soggy and tasteless. A positive note was the live band setting up just outside of our window. I would not recommend Hurricane Charley's as a restaurant, however as a laid back place to get a beer, watch the sunset, and listen to a live band, I would not hesitate to revisit.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review, your feedback is important to us as we learn from each review. We hope you will come back & give our food another try, as you pointed out there was a problem with that particular dish which has been recognized & resolved. We will be offering a happy hour, power hour & food specials for our locals. We just opened in January during peak season and needed to get our "sea legs" under us in time for our locals. We haven't forgotten about you & currently have lot's of ideas for the summer.

“Good food. Good atmosphere.”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Location was great. Right on the water. Not what we expected at first but good overall experience. Live music was good. Service was prompt and friendly. (Our first server greeted us by telling us how exhausted she was but fortunately our waitress was changed out before our orders were taken and she was great). Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice casual meal with a good selection on the menu and reasonably priced.
