We had a great experience here. One of the few restaurants that took reservations we called ahead for a group of 11. Everything was ready to go when we arrived. Service was great quick and attentive. Timing of the meal was good. I had the...scallops which were excellent but definitely on the small side as far as an entrée. On the opposite side of things we had three kids with us they all got the Surf and turf kids meal. They loved it it was a very generous amount of food and very good. Our party was pleased with the choice and that we had a reservation ability.More

We had dinner at Charley's as it was recommended in one of the brochures in our room. The food was very good and there is a view of a small inlet. Make sure you make reservations as they can be very busy.More

Such a nice place and food was excellent. Casual is ok. We had shorts and tshirts. But if you wanted to dress up you sure can. Variety of wine and drink menu. The bartenders were so nice and fun. If your in the area it’s...a must must stop.More

Had the bone in chop. Two bones thick and cooked perfectly. Could possibly have used a little seasoning but salt and pepper did very nicely. Wife had the chicken and shrimp pasta and loved it. Servings were very good. Decided at the last minute to...add the Brussel sprouts as a side. Delicious. Could almost call them candied Brussel sprouts. Our server Kelly was great. Friendly and efficient. With her help this was a great experience.More

I was expecting this restaurant to be good, but we were not impressed. The food was just average. We ordered the filet mignon (not much flavor) and added on the lobster. I ordered my steak medium rare and it came medium to medium well. They...got me a new steak, but the service was so slow that it took over 15 minutes from the time our food was served for our server (Kevin) to come and check on us to see how our food was. The service at this restaurant was slow and below average, considering the prices for the meal. We were at Fresh Catch Bistro last night for dinner and I would highly recommend going there vs. Charley’s, as they had much better food and top notch service. I was very underwhelmed by the service at this restaurant and would not return to this restaurant. The only reason we came was because it was within walking distance of where we were staying, but I wished we had driven to a different place with better food and service.More

Just got on the island after a long day of travel. Looking for a good dinner after subpar airplane snacks. Charlie’s is across the street from our lodging, so we gave it a shot. Reasonable 20 minute wait for a Saturday night. McKenna did a...very nice job waiting on us. Other staff also were very friendly. The warm bread to start was a lifesaver! Salads were substantial and very good. My wife had mussels, while I had the seafood pasta. Both of these were very good. We passed on dessert since we were so full, but we promised to return! Recommended.More
