We love it there. It's worth the drive from Ocala to Crystal River to get awesome seafood. The staff is also wonderful.

Good location on Kings Bay
Busy place and we found the food just average. Prices were quite high for the quality of the food. Extensive menu but we were there for the seafood. Crystal River has a number of seafood restaurants so be wise in your choice. We found this...More ... read more

Pretty good lunch
Was in the area for the day so we stopped in for lunch. Had to sit inside as tables outside were not large enough. Had a nice table by the windows. I tried the flounder which was pretty good. Was not too sure coming from...More ... read more

Very pleasant. Our server was excellent, the food was good, the portions were generous. The only negative was an overcooked, gummy baked potato. We stop here fairly frequently and are generally happy with our visit.

Food & Service Good but..... Cleanliness shortcomings
After visiting Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River, we stopped at Charlie’s Fish House for a late lunch (it was on Highway 19 & very close to where we bought tickets & the trolley left from & returned to). The restaurant was quite full when...More ... read more

Solidly Average
The decor is dated, but the food's ok. Nothing really special; everything was just that little bit less fresh than other area places, the crab claws seemed like they got them secondhand from the Crab Plant.

Good value. Good food. Fried, blackened, or broiled fish of any kind is a safe choice! Try cheese grits also.

Great food, great service, scrumptious!
I would definately eat here again! The coconut shrimp were scrumptious and the hush puppies were great. Flouder strips and burger were hits with others in our party. Our server made excellent recommendations and was very attentive. She made us feel welcomed and appreciated.

Great place!
My husband and I went here for lunch today. We sat out on the back deck near the water because it was such a lovely day. We had great service and the food was fantastic. We would definitely eat here again.

Tasty Seafood
We have been to this restaurant many times, and they never disappoint. They make awesome cheese grits. The blackening on the fish is also pretty good. Love the fresh catches. The service is always fast and friendly, and the price is right.

Deeeeellllllicccioussss! I would eat here once a week if I lived in Crystal River so I could try everything.

Was a very nice atmosphere. I ordered snow crab claws, which were very good. My problem was a $35 dinner was served with melted margarine! I have never had crab or lobster that was served with anything but melted butter.

Myself & three others did lunch on Saturday, January 27th, 2018. Two of us ordered scallops, & coleslaw. The scallops were overcooked & tasted rubbery. Both of us experienced severe upset stomachs within one hour of eating. Will not go back nor recommend this restaurant. Meal was definitely overpriced as well.

The smoked mullet dip is worth a trip to FL, if you don't live here. The lobster bisque will make your tongue slap your brains out! Great coconut shrimp! Can you tell this is one of our favorite places? Fresh seafood market attached.
