Fantastic view from the edge of the restaurant facing the ocean. Birds would literally float by you as we ate. Hated to leave. Food was excellent,waiters were nice though service was not the fastest. Men came through the restaurant to play their guitars and sing and I would have liked to have them serenade us but the music playing over... More

Charlie's Rock gives you a spectacular front row seat for watching the pelicans dive and the dolphins play. The food is good and not expensive. We recommend the seafood dishes.

I've never been a fan of the food here, but the margaritas are good and the bird and dolphin sightings are often and thrilling-especially when the gulls grab your chips or anything else you leave lying around. I had the Boston shrimp which was good but not great.

Went for the fish & chips. The fries were ok, but the fish was tasteless. Others at our table ordered shrimp and seemed happy with their food. Beautiful view from this open air restaurant on the water.

Watching the sunset behind Tetakawi while the waves lap the shore 50 feet below and drinking a margarita, everything else ceases to matter. The restaurant and bathrooms are clean. Food was very good. The one waiter was serving dinner to a large party and a handful of smaller tables. When he managed to get to us, our needs were promptly... More
