Both our meal and the service were excellent. Charley's has an excellent full salad bar. Our only complaint is the high level of noise from customer conversations. The acoustics are not good. This is a distraction to a fine meal with friends.

They have the best salad bar on the Island. Several different rooms to dine and a complete menu. We always eat seafood when in the area...however, others in our group raved about the steak. Extremely clean and plenty of parking. Highly recommended!

We ate here several times - we could walk from where we were staying. It is popular and usually crowded, but service is quite efficient and things move pretty fast. The big draw is the huge, fresh salad bar included with meals. There is a...More
