Salad bar was awesome! Everything was fresh and the homemade cesar dressing was delicious! My blackened chicken was not so blackened.. when skin came off so did the little seasoning. It was tender and the broccoli needed a few more minutes to cook. The bread was fantastic!! Hot and delicious!

If you want a fast meal with little to no atmosphere, this is the place. Staff was friendly, food was mediocre, go later it is usually crowded early.

Ordinary restaurant to us. Service was ok. Everybody seemed rushed despite empty tables around. Typical salad bar. Give them a try and see for yourself.

Very busy restaurant open for dinner only. Reservations are taken only for parties of 6+, but the wait for a table for 2 wasn't too long on a Saturday night in March. Service was efficient and the food was delicious. The 55 item salad bar had excellent variety and everything was very fresh and nicely displayed. The filet mignon was... More

Last night we went to Charleys for dinner. They have a huge salad bar, included with each entree. I ordered stuffed flounder with rice pilaf. My husband had the 10oz prime rib with baked potato. He said it was the best he had ever had. Their warm bread was also yummy. James, our server, was very friendly and attentive. My... More

Can't say enough good about Charley's Boat House! We have been visiting Charley's since 1994. We go at least once or twice while we are in Ft Myers Beach. We were there in Jan. 17 and redid the whole inside of the place. Can't wait to go back in April. Food & Service have always been very good!

Thank Charlie1girl
