We used to go to Charlie's Crab all the time for the best seafood and dinner in town and it has taken a turn for the worse so we'll call to Gordon Ramsay may not even help there are other restaurants to go to I...More

Generally enjoy going here because it usually seems special. Can't say that this time. Feel the attention to detail was lacking. Outside of the view from the window, the overall experience certainly fell far short of the thrill of the whole experience. Seems that they...More

This place had not only great food, but spectacular service. I was here for a business dinner and the waiter was adequately attentive, without being over the top.

We had a delicious meal at Charley's Crab. The sea food was delicious and the service was excellent. Alexander was our server and he did an excellent job. He made sure that we were delighted with our meal.

Charley's Crab these days seems to be resting on its laurels a bit. I enjoyed many meals here years ago when I lived in the area, but on my recent visit things were spotty. Hostess was great, our server seemed like he would've rather been...More

Yes- 4 to 7. Special pricing on drinks and a "small plates" style menu. A good deal and worth the stop.
