Charlie's Fish House, I first visited 50 years ago. It is still great. Then sea trout was featured. Today, coconut shrimp. Flounder, grouper and others are offered. The cheese grits, fried okra, and hush puppies are marvelous.

This place tends to be busy especially on the weekends. The waterside table views enhance the seafood dining experience. A full set of choices on the menu for all family members. The service can be a bit slow during busy times and that is to...More ... read more

Like many restaurants in this area, the menu is seafood focused. Good service. A bit of a wait - but it was a Friday night.

Our first visit was fantastic. Great service, food was delicious. Second visit was disappointing. Our waitress wasn't attentive and had an attitude. A third of my mussels weren't open and I was using a knife to pry them open until my dad said you aren't supposed to eat them if they aren't open. It means they were dead when they were ... read more

Good seafood. Outside seating on deck looking out at kings bay.
Amy Johnson via - Apr 5, 2019
Everything was good, my food was delicious, only drawback is that the staff was not very attentive. This maybe due to being out on the back porch.

Great food,large potions, casual atmosphere, nice price.
Pleasantly surprised by the large portion sizes and superb quality and freshness of the seafood. The side salad was just Iceberg lettuce with a few garnishes, but otherwise all was great. Definitely going back!

We had a great meal with a beautiful view over the water. Excellent service. I had the Tuna Tataki with linguini and seaweed. A very memorable and excellent meal. Reasonably priced. Completely satisfied!

I think there are better places not bad though.
Limited outdoor seating, if you sit outside, you will see pelicans and tarpons. They are fed scraps by the kitchen staff. Service was decent, prices ok. Had the crab bouys which is basically a deep fried crab cake ball, not bad. Also had a shrimp...More ... read more

Down the middle
Had Stone crab claws which were but over cooked. Service was very friendly but missed my side and salad. Wife's gumbo was blah. Too many top shelf sea food spots around here, will try those.

Party of 5 (2 seniors, 2 adults and a toddler) SUPER WHEELCHAIR FRIENDLY! Waitress was awesome. Very attentive. Food was amazing. Hush puppies SPOT ON. Fast service, full bellies. Still think they are a little over priced, but you get what you pay for.

Great food, I had shrimp pasta it was so good. My hubby had Mussells and so did our daughter. They really liked them as well. Everyone was friendly Kasey was our server and she kept our drinks full which is always nice. Wasn't too expensive either.

Originally rated Charley's at 1 star in 2017 after poor experiences and multiple visits we finally decided enough is enough. We complained to the management about our experience and didn't go back until today, March, 2019. Well, Charleys has improved in an awesome way. 1. Staff, more attentive and courteous. 2.

Great food. Friendly staff. Pelicans and huge tarpin fish to see off patio . Recommended to us from a local resident as the best crab cakes .

Good food!
We come here for fresh seafood! Just a small oceanside restaurant with home cooking! I always have the gumbo and it is superb! Better than Louisiana I think!

The food was good but the servicer was short, impersonal and the atmosphere could use a little help. We ordered calamari as an appetizer and it was 30% breading with little calamari.
