Enjoyed dinner here. Small shack with a small outdoor sitting area overlooking the ocean. Food was good- tried the cracked conch, cracked lobster, and grouper fingers. Fun to see the locals having a good time at the bar.

All of us enjoyed our meal at Charlies, the food was delicious. The setting is very seaside shack rustic, but you cannot get more authentic Bahamas than that!! The only negative is the flies that show up, when the food arrives. I do wish Charlies...More
