High prices - but great food. Regretfully, a poor value due to the frantic atmosphere. Not the place for a quiet romantic dinner. Uncomfortably loud to begin with. Then add 4 hearing-impaired patrons yelling across the adjourning table. We were re-seated at another table, but the same sports bar atmosphere prevailed. Result = Out of Control. Even the wait staff could not hear our order.

Hostess and Manager are immune. Plenty of other customers in line, so they don't care who makes suggestions, complains, or leaves.

Charlie's is located on New Orleans Rd., a side street accessible via either Pope Ave., or Wm. Hilton Pkway. A busy night might force you to park next door, but it's worth a few extra steps into the attractively casual dining room. The menu is (largely) French, but everything is recognizable. I began with a light side salad, followed by an order of escargot. For an entree, I enjoyed the Blackened Redfish (a la K-Paul's) - a tender, flavorful fish, with just the right bite of Cajun spices - including a garnish of fresh veggies. Not the cheapest restaurant on the island, but for a pleasant evening of fine dining, few other establishments on HHI will compare - worth a visit.

Charlie's is a small and unique bistro and bar that has the atmosphere of a European cottage. The interesting menu changes daily with lots of fresh fish and other items.

The food here is delicious! I I love the handwritten menu. The food changes seasonally but it's always delicious. I can't wait to go back!

It is great in every aspect. The menu is done daily with the freshest local fish and land items. The ambiance is very good as well as the service. We have eaten there several times, because we are local, and have never had a problem. It is our " go to" restaurant when we are taking visiting friends and family to dinner.
