Seven of us gathered on a Monday evening to celebrate my granddaughter's birthday. Our server, Chris, was attentive and most thoughtful. Food was good, especially the salads. Our grandson's prime rib was excellent according to him. Several of us had delicious pasta dishes. Our granddaughter was given a piece of cheesecake to take home. We were all too full to... More

Got the lunch specials. One was a salad, dressing are all homemade but they are very watery or super oily and have little to no flavor. Not a fan, would not go back. Also the spinach under the top spinach was old and not fresh. There was even water sitting under it all. Such a nice setting with the little... More

we were in the restaurant on 9/10/16 and had the worst meal of our life.  Drinks, appetizer and salads were good but once our main dish came for my husband and I it went drastically down hill fast.  We both ordered the stuff prime rib that cost $31.00 each.  When it came out it did look good but the au...

While Charlie's kind of specializes in fish and seafood, it does offer meat choices, including a very nice prime rib. I had a hard time deciding what to order because so many things sounded so delicious. I settled on escargot as an appetizer and then another appetizer - mussels - as a main course. Both were outstanding and served with... More

I eat here on a regular basis for lunch. They do a really good job. Never had a bad meal yet. Had a stuffed shrimp special the other day with creamed spinach that was outstanding. Sometimes the lunch serving size is a little small but that works well for me.

Great seafood menu at Charlie's, and the atmosphere is inviting. Relaxed fine dining. Food was great with excellent presentation, but service was so-so. Three couples dining; separate checks were assessed a 20% automatic tip. That would be fine if the service lived up to it, but the server was not familiar with the menu, didn't offer any advice, and was... More

Amazing food! We had the T-bone with Shrimp wrapped in bacon, and it was very good. Waiter was great (ask for Calem). He kept our drinks full, checked on us regularly without being intrusive. Beautiful restaurant. Wish we could have eaten outside, on the patio, but it was too hot that night. It is a bit pricey, but the food... More

The food was just average. No wow factor. Service was fine. I was particularly disappointed that I could not substitute the carb with an alternative. It couldn't be that difficult. They just can't be bothered.

$20 Alaskan king crab lunch was delicious. Had a turtle cheese cake for desert. Excellent service from Kiki and staff. If you order desert, know that it serves two. I couldn't finish mine. If your only negative is the servings are bigger than you expected... It's a good day. I'll visit again and recommend to anyone passing thru Omaha.
