We've been going to Charley's for over 10 years when vacationing on Ft. Myers Beach. The last 4 years our meals have been iffy at best. We returned again this year hoping things had improved. The scallops smelled like ammonia and my sweet potato was loaded with margarine when the waiter specifically asked if I wanted butter. There was absolutely... More

Our first visit the prime rib & salad bar were exceptional. Our second visit 3 days later) was an entirely different experience. We sat (15 minutes after opening) place our order for prime rib & enjoyed the salad bar. 45 minutesh later the waitress comes up & says we're out of prime rib (nothing in between). We should've left at... More

Seated promptly, server was excellent, slow to get our food then saw others receiving bread baskets. When I asked the server why we weren't offered bread she said "management said they were wasting too much bread". Really, you can't just ask customers if they want bread? You certainly charge enough for the meals - $25 for half rack of ribs... More

Decided to try Charley's again. It had just re-opened after a much needed remodel. The food was pretty good. The salad bar is still amazing. The steak was good. The fresh rolls are served hot and they are amazing. The soup was lobster bisque. Fantastic! The lobster tails were a little small for the price, but they were still quite... More

Went here for dinner whilst visiting the area. The service was good and efficient. I went for a steak and the salad bar to start with. The salad bar is very good, lots to choose from and very fresh. The steak was also very good, cooked exactly how I wanted it. The only thing was that it was a bit... More

Charley's does a wonderful job creating an enjoyable evening. The service is attentive and the wait staff patient especially with large groups with multiple checks. All of the entrees are tasty and the salad bar is a meal in itself.

While in Fort Myers beach we were given a coupon for this restaurant. When we about to go we looked at the menu & we couldn't believe the prices this place was charging. It was around double all the other restaurants in the area. We met someone coming out & they said not to bother as it's over priced. We... More

Would not recommend for a 'quiet' meal. The acoustics were such that you could concentrate on a personal conversation. food was overpriced.
