    Great experience. Table was ready when we arrived, service was excellent. We were sitting close to the bar area, so as the evening progessed it became more crowded and a bit noisier but Valentine's day was definitely a success. Thanks.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006

    The service was very good and lovely location. It is literally across the street from the ocean. It was nice to take an evening walk after supper along the walk next to the sea wall. The food was good. The lobster bisque was perfect. My wife had the shrimp trio and I had grilled black grouper. My wife said that she liked the scampi part of the trio alot and would get that solo next time. We had the apple-cherry crisp for dessert. Very good! It was a good Valentine's Day choice. We do plan to go again.

    Whether you are looking for a romantic dinner or a place to take out of town guests, or just an excellent meal in a lovely setting,this is the place. Each dining room within the restaurant is unique and,because of the outstanding ambiance, there is not a bad table in the restaurant. The food is consistently excellent, the staff is friendly and helpful, the service is always professional.

    nickVIP
    Dined on 1/31/2009
    You'll find "Maryland crabcakes" on menus across Florida, but speaking as a Marylander, these are the best you'll find outside of Maryland. Lots of lump crab meat and very little filler. It's worth going to Charley's Crab just for the crabcakes, but in addition you get a wide variety of really good fresh fish well prepared, a fabulous Palm Beach ocean view, and most attentive service. Highly recommended!

    Our party of 4 arrived promptly at our reserved time and were met by a very friendly valet who escorted us to the reservations desk. We were seated immediately by a very attentive hostess. We ordered 2 glasses of wine which arrived quickly (though for the price charged, we should have at least been shown the bottle first!). We ordered an appetizer, which was quite good. No bread was brought to our table until we specifically asked for it. The food -as always - was amazing and delicious. Dessert was offered and our server gladly split a dessert into two portions for our children. We thought the food was excellent, the surroundings quite nice. But the service could have used some more polish and was not as attentive as we would have expected

    I wish I could add additional stars, especially for the food, speciality drinks and services. There were seven women in our group, our second year celebrating pre-Christmas at Charley's Crab. The seafood was fresh and perfectly seasoned and the spicey bloody marys were the best we've tasted. The chocolate lava cake sent us into the season with joy. We plan to dine at Charley's often. All of us agreed that everything on the menu is five star plus!

    Charley's is an excellent seafood restaurant in Palm Beach. Great selection of fresh fish, shell fish, etc. Salads and deserts are were top notch. Wine list was extensive and varied. A great ocean view also, if you go early before dark. Highly recommend this restaurant!

  • Charley's Crab - Palm Beach
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/26/2008
    Charley's Crab - Palm Beach provided for a wonderful lunch with an excellent view. Looking at the Atlantic Ocean and the palm trees was breathtaking, but the food surpassed the view. The coconut shrimp were a fantastic start to a great lunch. My wife and I are from Maryland and to say the least, we are picky about a "Maryland style" crab cake. However, Charlie's did not disappoint. The crab cake had a traditional Maryland flavor and consistency. The appearance of the food was excellent. The dessert was to die for. The chocolate cake tasted like eating fudge. Absolutely YUMOOOOO! The Key Lime pie was also good. But, better yet was when we shared each dessert and tasted the two together.

    Excellent Food (crab avocado mango appetizer is outstanding) combined with a scenic view of the oceanfront if you are lucky enough to get a table by the window. An alternative for a scenic view is to request a table in the back bar area to dine.

    We were seated even though we were 15 minutes early. We requested a booth which was reconfirmed upon arrival. The food was outstanding including appetizer, soup, salad and three different entrees. No room left for dessert. Our waiter was attentive and very knowledgeable. The manager made a stop to see if everything was acceptable. We had a great time and will go back.

    I drive up frequently from South Miami to Palm Beach just for dining at Chaarley's Crab. This trip was a little disappointing for me because they have removed my favorite lunch from the menu. If you have any pull with them would you kindly ask them to return the Imperial Palace Shrimp Sale to the menu. Thanks for having the best way to make reservations. It is soooo convenient. Although I didn't have a computer with me on my weekend to Hutchinson Island,and couldn't make a reservation for my return trip to Miami, we did stop at Charley's crab in Fort Lauderdale for an early dinner.

The food was fantastic, great wine menu and comfortable ambiance, but it was the special treatment by the staff that really put it over the top. We were immidately seated & congratulated by the staff ..... the table set with rose petals.....our names printed on the menus with a congratulations.....great suggestions & service by our waiter....the rose given to my wife as we were leaving. So special and so refreshing. We have not been to Charlies Crab since they left the Jupiter area and are very happy to see that your high standard of excellence for quality food and service is still being maintained. Thanks for helping to make our 25th anniversary so special.
