have been dining there for 30 years, has gone down hill over the past couple of years and will never go back. Greed and neglect are a killer for business Mr Fertitta

Very disappointed. I used their website to review the menu. Apparently there are two locations with different menus but no way to discern if you select the right one, as the location is not on the menu. There is no twilight menu any more in Palm Beach. Manager was useless and offered no compensation when questioned....not even to include a salad.....which I finally asked for and was turned down. She is apparently a new manager with poor customer relation skills...very evident. Waitress got one order wrong and claimed she told us correctly but no one at the table recalls it so as we could not substantiate this ......we let it go.
Embarrassing to me as I suggested this restaurant to friends who were taking me out there......subsequently, I refrained from ordering drinks or desserts. With all the wonderful upscale restaurants in Palm Beach there are many others to choose from which I will do in the future. On the up side, the dinners we ordered were good and nicely prepared.

Nice place beautiful view, no pressure to order. Drinks were brought promptly. Myself and a long lost friend dined here for brunch on Sunday at 11:30 am, I had a reservation , not sure I really needed it but we were seated immediately with our choice of seating. Food was good and there was no pressure to leave after eating. Her Mimosa was good also. Chris was very cordial and pretty funny guy. 5 stars from me!

Not a great experience . When reservation was made I clearly stated it was for my girlfriends birthday. I also asked in the reservation to be seated by the window . Overall a poor experience , poor management has taken over the palm beach location.

The four of us enjoyed an evening for my husbands birthday of great food an excellent table with an ocean view . Our appetizers were Clam chowder and Dynamite scallops with a crab crust. The scallops were the best I have ever had sweet, tender, so delicious. The four of us managed a cross section of the menu. The men had Surf & Turf and a Filet each cooked to perfection. My sister had a mixed grill of Seafood and Fish served with rice. They cleaned off their plates having enjoyed every morsel of food. I had a Shrimp and Pasta dish that wasn't as tasty as the others meals.
The meal ended with the usual types of desserts seen in so many places, they were tasty but not exceptional. My husbands did have a candle in his.
We will return another year for his birthday since it is one of my husbands favourite restaurants.

We come to Palm Beach for a week every March to attend Cardinals Spring Training. We have been doing this for about 15 years and always select our last evening for a Charlies dinner! Now that should be an endorsement! Great job as always in all areas!

Our second visit and just as good as the first. The crab/avocado appy was really excellent as was the snapper Hemingway. Lots of raves for key lime pie also. We would definitely come again.

Good oysters.

Excellent lobster bisque.

Chicken Caesar had cool over-cooked stringy chicken. Appears to have been cooked previously; not to order

Not enough dressing on Caesar salad; taste only garlic. Not their best outing.

We were in town for Spring Training baseball games and went for drive. We had lunch here, and enjoyed it so much that we came back. I was glad to see it on Open Table for our 2nd lunch. Staff was great and the crab sandwich was terrific for lunch. We each had a glass of wine and went for a walk along the beach just across the street. Both times we had a great view of the ocean and beach. Wish we had one of these in St. Louis.

We love sharing the avocado, crab and mango stack as an appetizer, and the lobster sandwich is a great dish. It’s great to sit by the window at lunchtime to look over the turquoise ocean. The staff is friendly but professional, and it is quiet enough to conduct business or chat with your friends and family. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Palm Beach.

We went to celebrate our honeymoon . The first fish order placed was undercooked . We informed the staff and did replace but the evening was ruined . In addition, We were not happy how they brought our food so quickly . I felt it were in a fast food environment .

What a disappointment!!! This used to be one of our favorite places to visit while in Palm Beach ~ personalized menus, great food & service. However, Charley Crab's has taken a definite downturn since becoming part of the Landry's group. Food & service was terrible.....we won't be back. Too many other great places in the area!!!
