Carry out only - we normally order & drive it to one of the local shopping centers to eat. Whitefish sandwich is huge. Guy at the counter was impatient with us but not obnoxious. Fish is lightly battered and fried. It comes on a small hamburger bun that is pretty worthless. Just eat the fish with your hands & throw out the bun. Fries are frozen crinkle-cut. I will try their onion rings next time - they are a 1.50 up-charge on the meal. Word to the wise - that food comes out of the fryer VERY hot. Slaw was pretty good - really wet. You will want to eat it as fast as you can get in your car but - go slow - don't burn yourself.

Got the fish on white roll with side of fries and hush puppies. Fresh fish and the hush puppies were just AWESOME! The best I've ever had actually. It's take out only. Little hole in the wall tho and easy to miss if you're not looking.

I fondly remember the wonderful Charlie's fish sandwiches from years ago and I was excited to try them again. My wife and I each got the special which consists of a large fish sandwich and two sides. The total carry-out cost with two large iced teas was $23. The order taker was friendly and efficient and the iced tea was good. The cheap buns were stale and the watery coleslaw was warm and super sweet. The hush puppies were burned and the french fries were tasteless. The fish was OK and generous in its proportion, so we ate the fish and threw everything else away. Maybe we just went on a bad day, but we were very disappointed.

My husband loves the fish sandwich. I got chicken tenders because I don't eat fish and they were bland with no seasoning that I could taste.. I'm not a fan of sweet cole slaw and that is what they have. You get a small cup of cole slaw and it costs $1.50. This item is over priced and it doesn't taste homemade. I think it came out of a container . The only sauces they have for the chicken tenders is ranch or hot sauce. I asked for honey mustard and they don't have any. I used the tarter sauce that came with my husband's meal. He loves the fish so that makes me happy. The next time I will get my food from Hardee's. I love their chicken tenders. My husband had the fish dinner and I had 4 chicken tender with cole slaw the total was close to $18. It is take out only. Park in the large parking lot behind the restaurant and walk . It is close to the intersection so this way you can get out easier.
