Beautiful dining area with a view. Service was amazing. We had the blackened snapper and it melted in our mouth. They have a well stocked salad bar that could be a meal in itself. We highly recommend Charley's! Will eat there again soon.

The sirloin steak was cooked to perfection, my wife's shrimp and scallops were excellent! Salad bar has a ton on options, fresh and tasty! Our server Liam was fast, courteous and right on top of things.

We were staying just a few blocks from Charley's and noticed the parking lot was always full so even though we love waterfront dining and it's not on the water, we resolved to go. Great decision!

Salad bar was awesome! Everything was fresh and the homemade cesar dressing was delicious! My blackened chicken was not so blackened.. when skin came off so did the little seasoning. It was tender and the broccoli needed a few more minutes to cook. The bread was fantastic!! Hot and delicious!

If you want a fast meal with little to no atmosphere, this is the place. Staff was friendly, food was mediocre, go later it is usually crowded early.

Ordinary restaurant to us. Service was ok. Everybody seemed rushed despite empty tables around. Typical salad bar. Give them a try and see for yourself.
