Awesome experience yet again! Very satisfied with the patience of our waitress. Thank you again! Will be back soon.
Great ambiance with beautiful views. The service was amazing. Our waitress was friendly and personable and made us feel like we were home! The food was appetizing and delicious. Highly recommend the brussel sprout appetizer.
Food and service were great,,,noise was out of control. There was a large table of an extremely loud party behind my family of 4. We were trying to celebrate my sons 8th grade graduation. The entire meal from when we sat until we left was overwhelmingly uncomfortable. We all felt our experience wasn't what it should have been because that table was so loud. Their entire conversation was obnoxiously loud,,it wasn't just bits and pieces. It was so bad we couldn't wait to leave.
This place serves horrible food! If your kid orders Mac & cheese it’s straight from a box! Entrees are so blah. It also states its ocean side which isn’t the case. You can see partial ocean if you sit outside but it’s not a great ocean view like you would get at Rooney’s. Save your money and go to Rooney’s. This is the first and definitely the last time we’ll coming here. There are much better restaurants in the area. They need to hire a better chef.
Waiter appeared to be new. Some issues with food but everything straightened out except the lobster bisque was served luke warm. The others apps once the order was straightened out were ok. We’ve eaten here several times and last night was just an off night. It happens. Would try again.
Lovely evening on the porch with ocean breezes, good food and great friends. My party enjoyed the tacos, both lobster and shrimp. Spivey tuna roll was delish. Drunken clams however, were gritty.
First time dining there for me after a few hours at the beach. Excellent food selection , preparation and service.
Of the 3 of 4 entree’s only one was good. 2 specials The Monk fish & the stuffed pork loin were over cooked and dry. Fish tacos were also very dry. Calamari was a little rubbery. Drunken clams & crab dip were good. Recommend not sitting by the door by outside deck, every time staff opened the door a gust of wind blow menu’s off our table
Mel our waitress was fantastic! The food was great. We had the steamed artichokes, scallops and salmon. Allergies were addressed to perfection. Doreen, the manager, came over to see how our meal was and was so personable.
We will be back!
We love Charleys!! Food is great and the servers are terrific
Wonderful food. Great service. Tried the new Asian nachos.
Reserve a table on-line, we were seated promptly when we arrived. Service was fast & waiter was courteous & pleasant .we would go back to it.
Our server, Merrall, couldn't have been more accommodating, friendly, and efficient.
She made our anniversary most enjoyable. She is an asset to Charley's restaurant.
The manager was very friendly and pleasant, checking in on us and making sure we had an enjoyable experience. We will definitely be returning to Charley's.
We sat outside which was nice. Had the crab cakes and the scallops. Main courses were good but the sides were not. The sides were served cold and did not taste fresh. The rice was clumpy and terrible. Service was somewhat inattentive and there seemed to be a lot of tension amongst the staff.
Food was very good. Drinks were on point
Food was cold.
Waiter was not emotionally there.
Waiter forgot to add a candle to the cake when we specifically told him it was our aunts birthday.
Great place to meet friends! Food was very good. Onion rings really good.
Terrific NJ shore restaurant with some good American cuisine.
Nice atmosphere, excellent service and reasonable prices
It was a get together with cousins on a sunny afternoon. Just drinks snd appetizers to share. The service was outstanding! Food portions were tasty and ample. We will go there again.
What a fantastic find! You can see the ocean and the 2 outdoor decks have room for so many people. The atmosphere could be date, every day, special, or business meeting. It’s also on the North end of LB on the beach very quiet about half a mile from all of the loud noise / Ferrari party people. The food was delicious especially the mahi tacos and the village salad. Service was fast and everyone was attentive and friendly. We will definitely be returning.
Second time. Will go back
Charley's was great. We originally reserved outdoor seats. We were too cold (they had no heaters on their patio). We snagged two seats at the bar. Service was friendly and fun. Food was excellent. Will be returning!
Our experience at Charley's was a bit disappointing. There was a party of young girls that were extremely loud. The food was good, we did enjoy it, but we felt very rushed. The wait staff offered to take both our entree dishes and dessert while we were still eating. And the bill was delivered after only two bites of dessert. It would have been nicer if we had been allowed to enjoy our evening as there were many empty tables,we were there only 50 minutes in total.
Nice Restaurant by the water. Very warm decor and nice open dining room.
Somewhat of a limited menu and specials are also offered so should have something for all.
The French Onion Soup was very good as was the Seafood Tower.
The dinners were delicious as we had the Seafood Papperdale Fra Diavolo and the Ahi Tuna was cooked perfectly.
Dessert choices are nice but the star here is the apple cake! It is one of the most delicious cakes I’ve had!
This is good for everyday dining and a nice place to come from time to time.
I go here every time I visit Long Branch. The service here is wonderful, the food is very good and the prices aren't jacked up. It also has a very relaxing atmosphere. Charley's Ocean Grille is away from Pier Village, but right next to the ocean. Check it out.
Overpriced. We came for our anniversary and were disappointed. Excellent waitress, the food just tasted diner quality.
Decent service, food was not of the quality I was expecting. Lobster Taco waste of money they were horrible. My husband ordered half dozen clams 1 of 6 were bad, while they did compensate I had higher expectations
The shrimp tacos and drunken clams were delicious!!
Atmosphere, food and service were all outstanding!
Tuna pizza was good. Mahi-mahi taco was inedible. Overcooked and dry. Like eating dried out fish sticks.
Not the usual experience. The Tuna pizza was amazing as always and the dirty jalapeño martini was right on point. However, the entrees were cold right out of the fridge. We sent them back to be warmed up but still came back just as cold. Was a little disappointed as Charley’s has always been great and on point year after year.
Seated quickly, Attentive server, good food. Upstairs band was a little loud but overall a very good time.
Nice time had once again. Our seafood special was delicious, service was great and safety protocols were in place. I highly recommend dining here.
Always a great experience. Clay is awesome! We love sitting near the bar, watching the Yankees , and
Amazing service!!! Great drinks and loved the change in weekly specials! Will be dining again soon
Service was outstanding. Great staff 100%.
The food was delicious, service was great, restaurant was clean. Food: Quality and fresh...some plates are a little more pricey but you will not regret them. Went for mother's day which has a smaller selection, but everyone in my 5 person party enjoyed. Will return again.
Wonderful service. ! Loved everything👍
First of all, I had a reservation for two. The hostess brought us upstairs to a table and we saw another table that was opened and asked if we could sit there. Even though we had a reservation, the hostess had to go downstairs and ask someone if we could sit at the table we requested. Then we sat down and they did not bring us any bread. My friend asked for some bread and they brought us cold basic French bread. Before our food came two workers went outside to the deck and brought in a large table and chairs. They had the door wide open while they were doing this and it was blowing in freezing air! My friend had to help them keep the door open, because they were struggling to get the table inside.
I was not impressed with my crab cakes and I think they were over priced for what I got. In addition, the music was playing, which is one of the reasons why we booked this venue, but it was so loud that I had to shout to my friend who was just across the table. It was only 6:30 pm and people were eating dinner, I could understand the music being loud if it was around 8:30, but at this time people were eating. Plus, the music was terrible! When I left, I thought to myself, "I will never come here again."
