The food was good. The service was good, drinks could have come a little faster.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and a group of herMy wife and a group of her friends were planning a day in Grand Rapids that was to include lunch at Charley's. She did not know exactly where the restaurant was or how to get there, so we took an "advance scouting" trip to find it and have dinner. We were there on a Sunday evening so the restaurant was not busy which we appreciated. The food was outstanding in every way, and the waiters, waitresses and all the staff were efficient and friendly but not obtrusive. They turned our scouting adventure into a great evening and a great dinner--so much so that we already have return reservations.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great meal and a greatHad a great meal and a great deal with the early dining options. I enjoyed the food and our server was very helpful. It was nice to be able to make my reservations on line...very convenient.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a little bit of everything.Had a little bit of everything. Don't pass up the lobster bisque. The scallions were the best I've had!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRecommended for any OccassionSimply good food and good service. Great brunch fare. Great seafood.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a bit too quiet withJust a bit too quiet with many empty tables for our taste. May possibly be due to the fact it was "spring break" week and perhaps all restaurants were quiet. We enjoy a bit more activity in the restaurant.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed our dining experienceEnjoyed our dining experience there. It was extremely busy as we dined for Easter Sunday. I only wished we were allowed to order off of the menu as well. My Mom recently had a stroke and she could not walk and hold her plate back and forth to the Buffett.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Sunday BrunchWe attended an Easter Brunch with several members of our family, young and old. There was something for everyone. The food on the salad table was fresh and delicious. The sushi was inviting. The Charley's Crab rolls are to die for! While I passed on the breakfast food, all of the dinner food was hot from the steam tables. The carving table meats were done to perfection. The dessert table had a very nice variety of sweets and each of them that we sampled were delectable. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion and/or holiday brunch.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated immediately,We were seated immediately, and service was attentive and quick. Food was great, as usual. My Mom just raved about how they cooked her green bean veggie medley. One kind of annoying thing. They were not busy, yet they sat us right next to two other tables of people. The one couple was very LOUD, so we had to listen to their entire conversation our entire meal. Other than that, great experience.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Sunday brunch.Outstanding Sunday brunch. The staff took very good care of us and we will definitely be returning to Charlie's Crab during our next trip to Grand Rapids!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMUnderwhelmingThe variety of food was nice and the omelete chef was great. The Eggs Benedict were mediocre at best and the shrimp was very disappointing (not completely skinned)...I've never left shrimp unfinished on my plate before, but had to in this case. The coffee was excellent and the service was spot on.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great place to eat.Wonderful atmosphere. Very clean restaurant. Our table overlooked the river and it was beautiful. Place was quiet, could carry on conversations easily. Staff was very nice and very professional, the waitress knew the menu very well and offered great suggestions of food items. The lobster bisque is always delicious, just wish I could have more. Had coconut shrimp appetizer, next time I think I will get the meal, it was that good. Had to pass on dessert, too full from all the other food, which was mahi mahi with crab.
There is outside seating, but in the winter months, it is just a bit too cold.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
