Excellent locally owned, family restaurant. Local seafood, not imported. This is where the locals go for lunch after church. No fancy dishes here, just good, simple seafood. You can sit outside with a great water view with a cold beer and oysters. Doesn't get any better!

Our group of 20 was seated right away and service was excellent. Everyone of us received exactly what we ordered and the way we wanted it. The service was excellent and the food very good. The price was right as well.

Not sure this happens for everybody, but we went on a fishing tour with Captain Randy and he let us know if we mentioned we caught our fish with him that Charlie's would fix them up for us and give us a side and a drink. They did this and it was fantastic. Highly recommend the New England style clam... More

This was our last dinner in town before heading home. I ordered snow crab legs (my personal favorite) 😊 They weren't horrid, but they weren't the best either. Seemed old. Hubby got stuffed flounder. He says it was tasty and enjoyed it. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating. I don't mind paying a little more for my meal when I... More

Service was typical...not high end but not awful either...server was very nice. I was given a choice of seating which was nice as a solo traveler (not to be thrown at the bar). I tried the stone crab claws (new for me) as an appetizer...just wasn't for me...strong smell...I'll stick with snow crab. I got blackened shrimp (very good) and... More

Came here for the first time. I ordered broiled scallops and they were some of the best that I have ever had! The green bean side was from a can so please skip that. My husband had steak oscar and it was not good. It was way over cooked and the cut of beef was not very good. My daughter... More

Ordered take out since the kids were tired. The lobster bisque was awesome! We also had some conch fritters and fried shrimp appetizers.

I was looking for a local restaurant in which to eat dinner since I was tired of chains. Charlie's seemed to have what I was looking for with reasonable prices and an unpretentious yet clean waterfront location. To be honest, I thought I had made a big mistake when the obviously tired hostess seated me, but my server Stephanie made... More

We just had the most delightful evening with dinner at Charlie's fish house. Fantastic view. Fantastic meal. Fantastic service. We both had seafood platters, hers fried, mine broiled. Each was perfectly prepared. The mango lime pie was the perfect topper to a perfect meal.

One of my favorite places to eat. Their clam chowder is amazing. Shrimp is great. Grouper is so tasty. They offer 2-1 drinks too.
