Sis an I happened to drive by here so decided to stop. Am I glad we did. We got a fish sandwich. We also got hush puppies. The small fish sandwich was huge! And excellent. It was so good we came back a few days later. The hush puppies were a little spicy for us tho. If I am anywhere... More

This is an un-fancy take out restaurant. Some call it a dive but I found it to be too clean and organized to earn the title.

Carry out only - we normally order & drive it to one of the local shopping centers to eat. Whitefish sandwich is huge. Guy at the counter was impatient with us but not obnoxious. Fish is lightly battered and fried. It comes on a small hamburger bun that is pretty worthless. Just eat the fish with your hands & throw... More

Got the fish on white roll with side of fries and hush puppies. Fresh fish and the hush puppies were just AWESOME! The best I've ever had actually. It's take out only. Little hole in the wall tho and easy to miss if you're not looking.

I fondly remember the wonderful Charlie's fish sandwiches from years ago and I was excited to try them again. My wife and I each got the special which consists of a large fish sandwich and two sides. The total carry-out cost with two large iced teas was $23. The order taker was friendly and efficient and the iced tea was... More

My husband loves the fish sandwich. I got chicken tenders because I don't eat fish and they were bland with no seasoning that I could taste.. I'm not a fan of sweet cole slaw and that is what they have. You get a small cup of cole slaw and it costs $1.50. This item is over priced and it doesn't... More

Today was my first visit to Charlie's seafood. The staff were very nice and the food was very good and there was plenty of it! The one thing to be aware of is that they are carry out only, not a single table in the place.

Ordered scallop box got around 8 small scallops with a ton of fries for $15 bucks. Big time rip off and over priced. The fries just dominate the meal. Don't waste your money unless you like $15 fries!

If you want a consistently delicious (and large) fish sandwich with good sides Charlies is THE place to go. The fish is cooked when you order it, not 15 minutes or half an hour ahead of time like everywhere else. You get choices of bread and sides, and regular or "light" sized sandwich. Light means one piece of fillet instead... More
