“Great Steak & Salad Bar”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Charley's Boat House has a great steak and salad bar. The atmosphere is very nice and the wait staff were pleasant. The early bird special are fantastic! I enjoyed my perfectly cooked well done steak... it was juicy and had no pink... just like I love!

“we left hungry.”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Salad bar was fresh and tasty (comes with all the entrees; the food was well prepared. we all had seafood so this review isn't about steaks.

restaurant only open after 5pm.

all in all quantity vs price not a good ratio. 4 people ate for a little over $150.

“Great steak”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I have been eating at Charlie's every time I vacation in Fort Myers. One of the best salad bars on the Beach. Melt in your mouth steaks. I love their teriyaki sirloin . As tender as any filet I have ever eaten. Located on a canal on Estro Blvd

“Nice for a small dinner party--love the Mini Menus”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Had my husband's 70th birthday dinner for 10 at Charley's. Our group was able to have a nice private area in the Lounge before our table was ready--got to watch the end of a golf match!
Requested a table by a window, and we had a great view of the canal in a room that had only 3 or 4 other tables. Salad bar was great--lived up to our expectations. I selected one of the Mini Menus which is a great idea when you are having a group of people--helps to control the cost. Several of the steaks requested to be cooked medium, were a little more well done but the waiter did offer to bring out another which we did not do--they were still good. I am looking forward to going back and trying the regular menu--looked like some good selections.

“Good casual place for steaks”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Traditional large salad bar - chilled plates with huge selection on double sided bar - all fresh - second trips welcomed. Fresh cooked mini bread loafs were a surprise and very good. Steak and seafood selections were all excellent. Had to send sweet potato back as it was cold in center. Redo came out in about 2 minutes and was fine. Otherwise meal was fun and will for sure go back.

They put couples on the step down porch with windows next to the small boat canal behind the restaurant. Families with kids and large groups are seated one level up away from you so the place maintains the appropriate separation for your dining.

We had waiter, Rob, who talked us thru the menu and was very attentive and helpful. There is a early bird discount from 5-6PM if this meets your schedule. We had plenty of time to walk the beach and catch the sunset after the early dinner.
