We ordered a couple different items for dinner and were a bit underwhelmed. The vegetables were garlicky and mushy, perch was okay, scallops were not overly flavorful. Service was slow for a big party. Prices were on the high side.

A fantastic experience during the happy hour from 4-7. Really delicious small plate options offered. We had the shrimp & crab quesadilla (loaded with real crab), surf ‘n turf and firecracker poppers (shrimp). All were awesome. Great wine selection as well.

Every year we take the family here for their Sunday Brunch! Wonderful as always, and they did a great job accommodating a family member with a gluten Allergy!

Made same day reservations at 6 pm on Open Table. Love the free parking lot for restaurant guests. Good thing we had reservations because even at 6 pm on a Saturday the restaurant was very busy.

The hostess seated us exactly at 6 pm. Very nice dining room with views of the Grand River.

Our server Dwayne explained that he’d recently transitioned from assisting in the kitchen to being a server. However, he had an impressive knowledge of the menu.

The “premium by the glass” wine list is wonderful. A good number of excellent selections. I started with a Pinot Noir that was great.

The Mediterranean chowder was excellent as were the everything style bread rolls with butter or salmon pate. I loved my Caesar with anchovies. Their dressing was a bit tangy like they add a bit of Dijon mustard.

My wife had the vegetable ravioli and I had the Gulf snapper with vegetables and coconut rice. Excellent. Fresh fish, very flavorful, nice portion. The ravioli was obviously house made pasta with a delicious sauce.

Dwayne suggested the shark fin pie for dessert. We opted for the blueberry bread pudding with vanilla ice cream. It was very good but when we saw one of the shark fin pies go past, we regretted not following the recommendation. It was huge and looked delicious.

We loved our Saturday night dinner at Charley’s Crab. There are certainly more trendy places in GR but perhaps not with the excellent food and coziness of this Grand Rapids gem.

Great job, Dwayne and Charley’s Crab!
