There were four of us with big appetites. We were sharing everything and were all very happy. Boom Boom shrimp, New England chowder and several combinations platters. The crab cakes and stone crab were so fresh. We sat outside on the deck watching the boats on the Crystal river. It was a beautiful afternoon. The service was efficient and really... More

The lobster bisque is the bomb! We've been here about ten times. Never disappointed. The staff is superb as well. And.... The view is pretty too!

This place is great! Big lots of seating. It was packed at five pm, tons of senior people. But we were seated immediately and served promptly. Shrimp were freshly battered, very thin batter so you taste the shrimp. Excellent prices. My friend got a burger, looked average, but then again it was like five bucks. They have lots of fresh...

Our waitress was one of the best we have ever seen and only her friendliness topped the food which in itself was outstanding. I can't give high enough praise to waitress Carrie. A HUGE thank you to her and Rick (he supplied the entertainment) for making this easily one of best Florida memories. We won't forget you and hope to... More

A lot of fried food. Had the Stone crabs for a appetizer and they were tuff. Had the blacken grouper for main course and it was good. Beautiful view and friendly staff. Would think they would offer more fresh seafood dishes being right on the water.

We have been going to Charlie's for years; never had a bad meal. I used to love the fried Shrimp but now, due to Gluten Intolerance have to eat the peel-n-eat shrimp. Everything is so fresh. Very friendly waitresses.

Fish is the staple of my family for Friday's in Lent but most especially on Good Friday. Today I had the baked crab stuffed shrimp with a baked potato and side salad. It was very good. Nothing to complain about. My sister had her usual Scallops Rockfeller and our friend also had baked stuffed shrimp. We've lunched here many times... More

After visiting the Crystal River State Park, we stopped at Charlie's Fish House for lunch. For $7.99 we had a choice of at least a half-dozen tempting lunch entrees including two side orders. My wife and I both ordered the clam strips, a salad and one of the vegetable sides. All were fresh, well-prepared and tasty. Staff was friendly and... More
