We had dinner at Charley's. Reservations are a good idea. We did not have reservations so had about a 20 minute wait. The salad bar is incredible. Be careful not to get too full on the salad options. I had scallops and shrimp (blackened) and my husband had steak and shrimp. The seafood was very nice, not overdone. The steak... More

My wife and I pulled into Charley's and found a nice place to eat with good food and the best wait staff. We had been in the area for about a week and been on a steady seafood diet so we both had beef this night. They had an early bird prime rib, smaller than the prime rib dinner but... More

No place, but no other restaurant on this beach has a salad bar like this one. Yes, I know its a "boat house" but trust me, and try coming once and ordering "just the salad bar as your entree" and see if you don't just love it. They have good steaks and seafood and an early bird special, too. Nothing... More

We arrived ay 530 and were seated at 6:01 just after the early bird prices expired even though there were open tables. Waiter was more interested in clearing the table than giving quality service and didn't offer us dessert till we asked. Salad bar was great and entree was really good. But service was definitely oriented towards turning the table... More

We ate at Charley's Boat House Grill on Christmas Eve. It was very busy. The menu was extensive. The food was we prepared (prime rib and scallops). Our server was very pleasant. The only negative comment was that it took a long time for our server to bring our check.

Our meal was great & Bobby G is an excellent, attentive server. Don't go thirsty - can't get a drink from the bar & it took over 1/2 hour for the bar server to make it to our table. Not a good start.

We have seen the full parking lot night after night, but just tried it last week and week before. We loved the 55 item salad bar and the menu has many great choices.Seafood, beef, and more. We tried blackened scallops that my husband raved over and the broiled scallops I ate were excellent as well. The second visit we had... More

This place is probably the best you'll find on Ft. Myers beach. Great food, good portion sizes, and an awesome salad bar. Friendly & efficient wait staff - Bobby was our waiter who did a fantastic job. Thanks again - see you next time we come down.

very long waits (we got there at 5 pm on a Tuesday and waited at least 45 min) it's a bit over priced, the food was good, other nearby venues were better. big salad bar if that's your thing to belly up and get your fill a few time, it's not our thing, so it was okay overall.
