One of the worst dinners ever! Service, food, value -- you really have to work at it to be this bad!
Was told three times that they were out of the fish we ordered. They actually told us that they had a private party which ordered all the things that we tried to order! Really? Half the tables were empty at 8pm. So sad to see Charley's fall so far!

Very disappointing. Charley’s Crab is usually a great experience. So I took my wife there for Valentines Day dinner. Service was slow, food was sub par. Stone Crab did not seem fresh.

Best thing about the meal was the basket of bread they brought after sitting unattended for 20 plus minutes. Food was well below expectations. Atmosphere was like being in a banquet room with tables so tight you could hardly navigate out. Waitress was interrupted twice by other staff trying to deliver food; felt rushed to have my questions answered. I even excused her once to go resolve issue at another table. Table side presentation of specialty drink involved placing ice cube in glass and pouring drink in to glass $20. Chocolate tort cake tasted like it came out of a box. Not at all impressed for the cost and prestige or what I thought Charley's Crab could have provided.

I belong to the Landry Select club and have been to many of their restaurants but I had not been to Charley's Crab in over 15 years. So, since it was always a very good restaurant we went with another couple whom I told would be a really great time. Well, talk about disillusionment! I ordered Grouper, and the portion (supposedly just 7 oz. ) was ridiculously minute and for $37.00 I told the manager that it was unacceptable, so they made it over and served me a proper size portion. But the vegetables were cold, however at that point, enough complaining. My wife and one of my friends were served dinners which were cold and they had to be returned to be reheated so the manager did not charge for these 2 dinners. He and the waitress apologized, but there were just too many negatives, and we were not looking for bargains but for a good dining experience. The evening was our Valentine's Day outing and Charley's Crab managed to ruin it. I do not need to visit a restaurant that has so many problems and so Charley's Crab is definitely off of my list and I will tell everyone that I know just how terrible our experience was.

Service was sub par. Food came out cold and crusty after about 20-30 mins under heat lamp. Waiter denied there was a heat lamp.

Would never go here again.

We were seated at a back room table with no atmosphere, and the room was freezing. My daughter’s chicken came out pink and my snapper was bland and very fishy tasting. I haven’t been here in 20 years and I don’t think I will be returning.

Usually consider CC a special restaurant we visit on Valentine's Day.
The visit a few days ago was a disappointment to me because my fish tacos were not especially goid. The first half lacked fish. Didn't taste aany within the dressing, etc. The second half had a bit of fish bit had a fishy taste. That caused me to leave the rest of it.
Told the waiter but he said it depends who makes the sandwich, and he apologized.
Other guests with me had no complaints.
I also had delicious fish soup.

Very disappointed. My meal, lobster grill cheese had absolutely no taste. The waiter was not friendly. Didn’t feel comfortable in restaurant at all. The only nice guy was the parking valet. Definitely will not go back

Wonderful food and service! Tatiana was our server and was so sweet. I asked what her name was again when we left, so I can ask for her as a server next time.
We had dinner there for our 15th wedding anniversary. But my husband said, we will come more often. So expect to see us on Friday nights.

Dissapointed this time for lunch on a Sunday- slow service, our waiter forgot to bring the drink ordered, our favorite item on the menu was no longer available ( ran out of it, we were informed will be available in 1.5 hours...) too cold from the A/C to feel comfortable.

Clearly there was not enough help in the kitchen.
Our waiter was running to try to take care of all the tables he was assigned. He was pleasant, hard-working and frustrated.
It was too much too long to get our entrees. The mussels were small and there werethree or four with nothing in the shells; a couple that hadn’t opened.
My oysters were small and not ice cold. My avocado and crab timbale had shredded crab, as opposed to the lump crab I expected.
We have been to this restaurant bt

After frequenting a few restaurants in Boca Raton for dinner with the noise level energetic, it was so delightful to have a quiet setting at Charley's Crab. The food and service was outstanding!

We enjoyed this upscale seafood-dominated restaurant. It appeared our waiter was new. He barely gave us time to be seated when he asked us if he wanted drinks. After asking for a moment to look at the wine list and drink menu, it took him quite a while to get back to us, but at least he apologized when he did. Then he came back and said the bartender was too busy to serve up our drinks. Never heard of that! Aside from that miscue -- our drinks did finally arrive -- the seafood was delicious and the rest of the meal was uneventful.

Our first visit to this restaurant to celebrate 2 birthdays over brunch. The menu selection was good and we all enjoyed our meals. The crab frittata was excellent. The service was very good and attentive, We had a nice view of the ocean despite not being seated right next to the window. I mentioned when I reserved that we were celebrating 2 birthdays and our server brought 2 delicious desserts for our table. I will definitely be going back.

Everything that could go wrong did! I requested thru Open Table a window table NOT a corner one. My request was not fulfilled. The reason: they didn’t notice my request! I waited 15 minutes for the proper table to be ready! Turns out a soiled table cloth was used. Server finally came over took our drink order. Drinks delivered 15 minutes later ...they were WRONG!!.....server didn’t show up again for another 20 minutes. Asked to speak to a manager ASAP waited another 15 minutes ... started leaving she finally surfaces saying she was busy with a party table! I frequent this restaurant very often .... last night it was disgraceful especially for a Palm Beach Island Restaurant.

Our party was very happy with our restaurant of choice. We had a very leisure dinner for the birthday man and enjoyed everything we'd ordered. This is definitely a special occasion place near the beach. The host and waitresses were very attentive and made sure we were all happy with our choices. Definitely a place to go back to when in town again.

Guys this is a chain! And the food certainly tasted stale/pre-prepared/lacking in taste and that made fresh feeling. Also service was lovely but it was super awkward as they offer coupons at the table bc it’s a chain...

We stopped in for a late lunch. Had drinks and several appetizers - grilled octopus, avocado and crab timbale, Caesar salad. The octopus was a bit tough. The ambience and service was very nice, the price is a bit high, but to be expected for that area of Palm Beach.
