I was seated in the bar and told the waiter, who appeared after 15 minutes, that I had a plane to catch. I ordered two appetizers the first of which , fried calamari was big chunks of squid in congealed batter. After another thirty minutes I asked for my Caesar salad. Sometime later I was told that the kitchen list... More

I went with friends tonight Feb 21, 2017 to Charley's Crab, the food was great, the server Chris was not nice, almost rude. I asked him for a drink and he flatly said " NO, we can't do you Mango Vodka drink without the Ice Tea", he did not even bother to tell us the specials or feature entrees, then... More

Ended up here by happenstance - I had not been here since 1985 - so things had changed, renovation - but other than that things were subpar. Walked in and immediately had a musty smell - were seated with no reservations which was nice - 5 of us - view is wonderful! Took a while, though not busy, for the... More

Check out the Happy Hour in the bar! Great drinks and appetizers at reduced rates. The food and service is always excellent! Don't miss this restaurant if you are in the area.

Highly disappointing. I very rarely write reviews, however I read plenty on here that raved about the place, so I feel obligated to post an honest review. I will start with the fact that Charley's Crab has a fantastic location and a great view of the ocean. It also has a great environment and the inside is cozy and intimate... More

We were here for a business dinner. The guys ordered some stone crab claws and calamari for appetizers. The calamari was very nicely seasoned and perfectly cooked. Most of the fellows had fish for the entree and all really enjoyed their meal. I had blackened Grouper at the recommendation of our waiter and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We've been to Charlie's on several occasions, but not recently since we only reside in Florida part time. We decided to go to Charlie's on our weekly date night. Our reservations were for 8PM. We arrived approximately 10 minutes early. The hostess Erica, said that we would be seated closer to our reservation time. So we were free to wait... More

My husband and I were in town for my birthday and we decided to try Charley's Crab, after a few recommendations. WOW! We were blown away! The service was incredible; probably the best dinner service we've ever experienced. The specialty cocktails were delicious-- different from the traditional ones you find at every other restaurant. You could really tell that they... More

We arrived early in West Palm and our room wasn't quite ready. After a quick drink at our hotel time flew by and our 2:30 reservation rolled around just in time. A quick ride from our hotel driver and we were at Charley's. We were right in between lunch and dinner so it was very quiet and very relaxed. Just... More
