Just found this place on a very busy weekend in Grand Rapids. Had no idea what it was, by the outside I could tell it was an older place that was going to be nice. Once inside it was that classic high end restaurant. It...More

We went to Charley's Crab for Mother's Day at 6 pm. They had a wonderful, well stocked buffet set up with many choices--too many to list them all. The buffet featured many items off their regular menu including prime rib, shrimp and their special salad,...More

Due to events in GR part of the parking lot was rented out, so accessing the restaurant was not easy. Staff was pleasant, but the service was abysmal. Extensive wine list, but the food was underwhelming. Beef tenderloin didn't even seem to be a tenderloin...More

This is our favorite special occasion restaurant, so we went there for my 80th birthday. Apparently a lot of other people had a similar idea because we saw several "birthday" creme Brulee's go by our table. We had an excellent waiter and the food was...More

We always visit Charley's Crab, when in Grand Rapids. The food is fantastic and service is superb! They are also a member of The Landry Club. Go during your birthday month!

We enjoy Charley's because of its proximity to GR's entertainment, notably 20 Monroe for last night's concert. You get a great meal, wonderful views and ambiance and free event parking. It almost doesn't matter if the food's not great--but it is! Our server, Michelle, did...More

This place is a safety trap waiting to happen. The ramp, layout and intersections were scary. The brunch was average with a few standouts like brie and creme brulee. They really need to update everything. Luckily the company at our table made up for the...More
