Six of us rode our motorcycle to Charlie’s from the Villages area and as usual, was pleasantly surprised again with the great food and service we recieved. All is good when we visit even the chocolate flavored “mints”. Lol. And the Large carp out back are very entertaining too. “Come on down. Y’all be glad you did.” ... read more

Absolutely phenomenal!
We started off with two for one margaritas!! Yummy! Ordered calimari and Ahi tuna for appetizers. Both were scrumptious. The ahi was my favorite of the two. So tender that it melted in your mouth. Then we all ordered our meals. I ordered the special...More ... read more

Let's keep this short and sweet. The highlights:  Lobster Bisque and Conch Fritters. The lowpoints: Our friend's Mussels. Watery broth, overcooked pasta.  Sad that the fried clams are frozen when this seafood restaurant is so close to Cedar Key for their fresh and delicious clams.   Staff was friendly and accommodating. View is nice.

A basic local Fish House. Fresh and well prepared.

Quaint place on the river. Good food and atmosphere. I sat outside thinking the weather was great for it, and it was truly. The only problem was the mosquitoes, being that it was later in the evening. The bugs were obnoxious, I got bit up.

Meal with entertainment. We sat outside in the area overlooking the water. We watched the pelicans and tarpon being fed.

We love this place. We eat here on the way to Florida for the season and going back north. The seafood is always fresh and abundant. My husband says he gets his fill of oysters. Baked potato was cold but we're too full to care. Wouldn't melt the butter.

We enjoyed app and our dishes.
We enjoyed app and our dishes. We started with the tasty buttery and garlicky escargot. Hubs was craving the stone crab and was not disappointed. I tried the crab stuffed shrimp and it was delicious. Kids were happy with grilled cheese and nuggets. Too full for dessert. We had great service and would definitely eat there again.

Excellent food. It's not your typical Fried Cod, French fries, and Coors kind of place. The fish is super fresh and most items aren't fried. Clean, friendly service, knew the menu and could handle special requests.  Excellent place for dinner.

One of our favorite fish restaurants! My husband loves their fried mullet...always fresh, fried just right, and a good-sized portion. I enjoy their grilled grouper or like tonight, the crab-stuffed flounder. And, the service was great even though they were packed!

Waterfront Dining
The menu and food is fine but this restaurant has a fishy odor that will keep me from going back. The location is very nice right on the water in Cyrstal River.

Something fishy
Very average dinner. Nothing special. I was expecting to have a great dinner based on location, but unfortunately it didn’t blow me away.
