We have been coming to Captain Charlie's every year for 15 years and were disappointed this time (never before). Restaurant was smoky and very noisy. Service was questionable - waitress was sullen at best and actually forgot part of our order until we had finished everything else. Not sure if we will go back. On the bright side the Potato...

The Reef was very good food, beer, and wine. It is a very popular place for visitors and local residents, so be prepared to wait. Our server was Barbara, she knew the menu inside-out and offered informed recommendations with great service. We went to the Reef on a Saturday, and waited for our table for a half hour. I liked...

I will never ever wait over an hour to be seated at a restaurant again. This place is overhyped. Try the Food Shack instead

On our last night of vacation, we wanted a nice seafood meal. We read the reviews and decided on this place. It looks like a tiny place on the side of a mall (not facing the street). It opened at 5 and we got there a few minutes before. There was a line! But when we got in, the place... More

Captain Charlies is our favorite place to eat. Food is excellent and atmosphere is vibrant and lively. The only drawback for customers is the long wait. But a crowded restaurant is a sure sign of a good restaurant. My only complaint was one time as we waited over an hour for our table, we checked our "status" in line to... More

Excellent home made food, It is very busy there and not a lot of room. Expensive but really good quality of food.

This place was stuck in an unispiring, hidden little strip center. Don't let the exterior fool you. The interior is hopping with locals who know the gem they have here. I wanted everything on the menu but chose a shrimp taco and a seafood/pineapple wrap that were both amazing. My daughters had seafood pasta dishes that were wonderful. Found out... More

Hidden in a little strip mall, Captain Charlie's has a large menu, fresh fish, generous portions and great service. There were many interesting dishes. The small plates are large! Highly recommend!!

Don't come here expecting a quiet intimate dinner. Noisy - good thing we were sitting next to each other or we would not have been able to talk. Staff very rushed. But food did not disappoint. Roasted pepper and crab soup was delicious. Shrimp and grits was good but have had better. Sweet and spicy shrimp were awesome! We'll be... More

This is a popular place that does not take reservations. There is always a wait during their busy season.....an hour is not unusual. But the food is worth the wait! We have eaten here 4-5 times over the last couple of months. A great local spot. You can get a glass of wine or beer a couple of doors down... More
