We were here for 'early bird seating'. No seats at the bar available. Limited choice, I had the salmon which was excellent, but my husband had the 'minced/hamburger' This was made from the ends of various cuts of better beef, but by the time that it got to us, contained a large amount of cartilage! Dessert, a form of bread... More

But I have it 5 anyway. Read on... The restaurant is quite large but doesn't feel as such. The layout is very grateful, muted,and nice ambience. The server was superb - attractive,respectfully amusing, and knowledgeable. For the entrée we had Mahi-Mahi, scallops, shrimp - all superb - I had grouper which was very good. My dessert - bread and butter... More

Not really a secret but close to it. This restaurant offers an Early Bird menu (verbal menu) from 5:30-6:00pm). For only $19 bucks you get your choice of four entrees and dessert and salad. The entrees are right off their main menu and portion size is the same. The Tilapia and Tuna dishes are fantastic. Also have Salmon and chopped... More

Six of us spent a lovely evening with Charlie. The service was excellent. Not rushed; not ignored. It was not noisy and though we sat at a large table we could hear each other very easily. No conversation broken in to different groups due to lack of hearing. The food was wonderful, served on piping ( and I mean piping)... More

This used to be the top restaurant on the island and while the Jazz Corner has the music schtick, this is still the best food around, period. The fish is consistently perfect, the servers (Anthony and Courtney) personable, friendly and attentive, the wine and cocktail selections fabulous and all in all--just a wonderful meal--again and again! This will always be... More

Loved the food in this beautiful restaurant. Our waitress Jody was wonderful. We were seated a little before 6. After we ordered drinks and were discussing the menu Jody was so kind to suggest that we order quickly. If she entered the food order before 6 we would get the "early bird" deal. We had a great meal and saved... More

As a regular visitor to HHI for the past 42 years, Charlie's has consistently been a top notch restaurant since it opened some 20 years ago. Their menu is handwritten and changes everyday. The ambiance is French Country and terrific. Service is always first rate. Prices are reasonable for this level of freshness and expertise in the kitchen. Great and... More

Charlie's has been one of the places to be seen on Hilton Head Island for years! Charlie has a hand in everything that is conceived and served there. I have eaten there hundreds of times (usually at lunch) and have never been disappointed. I often have the flounder (lightly breaded and sauteed) which comes with the best au gratin potatoes...

Charlie's is undoubtedly my favorite place to have lunch with friends. It has a wonderful atmosphere; very warm french decor. The food is constantly fabulous. They are famous around Hilton Head for their house salad with their homemade vinaigrette dressing. Great wine selections and 5-star service make it a great dining experience from lunch or dinner. Most people tend to... More
