have eaten at Charlies on several ocasions and it's always top notch: impeccable service and beautiful menu selection with food that stands up to expectations. Go before 7pm for happy hour in the bar! FUN bartender makes you want to drop in just for drinks! Don't miss a night at Charlies. You'll be glad you went.

My husband and I celebrated our first and 2nd anniversary here and both times were excellent. They really do serve the most delicious scallops I've ever had. I live that the chef handwrites the menu daily based on his trips to market. It is a little more than we would usually pay for a meal but very worth it.

Charile's is simply one of the best french restaurants anywhere. Owner, Charlie Golson, who grew up in Bluffton, on the May River just across from Hilton Head, runs his restaurant with charm and elegance. We met in Dakar, Senegal, over 35 years ago where Charlie was teaching at the Hotel School. He speaks French fluently (and Woluf, the lingua franca of Senegal) . Fine cuisine and wine has always been his passion along with making the dining experience memorable. The menu is exciting, the wine list excellent, and the atmosphere of the restaurant and bar is welcoming, partly due to the simple, tasteful decor and partly due to the other diners, most of whom are enthusiastic regulars. Margaret Golson, Charlie's daughter, is the sommelier. The price is exceptionally reasonable considering the quality. I pass through Hilton Head about every other year and would not think of dining anywhere else except at Charlie's.

We stop at Hilton Head yearly and try extremely hard to include a stop at Charlie's every year. We have never been disappointed. I am so happy that they are there. We had a sailor trifle and crepes. Outstanding.

This is our second time dining at this fine restaurant on HHI and we will add this to our list of "must visit" restaurants. Great food - great service! The plates and food are piping hot when served! The blackened tile fish is a winner if it's a fresh catch on the day you visit.
