Seafood
Focusing predominately on fresh local seafood with a French, Lowcountry flare, Charlie’s is the place for good food, good wine and unforgettable memories all enjoyed in a quaint French country atmosphere.

A Savannah native, Charlie Golson’s interest in the French language and culture took him to Paris. After a long stint in the fast paced hotel kitchens of Washington DC, he was ready to move back closer to home. It was at that time he was able to open up a one room French bistro. The restaurant has grown over the years, but the ‘Green Star’ remains steadfast in offering the finest ingredients the Low country has to offer with a menu that is hand written daily.

Ate in the Bar with Jeff (Bartender). As always we were warmly welcomed and had great conversation with Jeff and other couples. Jeff, performs great service and mixology while also entertaining the crowd. Terrific wine and drink specials for happy hour and a menu with all kinds of fresh and delicious options. I had the bar only cheese burger and my wife had a filet both cooked and presented to perfection!

Love the ambiance at Charlie’s, we sat at a high top in the bar area and got great service from Jeff. The appetizers - baked oysters and crab salad were excellent; oysters baked with collard greens and cheeses which was new to me but really tasty. Fir main courses, we had the flounder and sea bass which were outstanding, excellent flavor and great accompaniments. Just a great night all around, highly recommend.

Over the last 6 months,during the virus shut down, we have gone to Charlie's once or twice a month. That tells you they are doing something right. Sitting outside with heaters is safe, food is a consistent outstanding marvel & servers are well trained and are top notch. Depressed at staying home for months treat yourself to a wonder dinner at Charlie's to pick up your spirits. Wonderful selection of sea food and choices of meat on the menu. CALL TODAY FOR A RESERVATION.

Eating at Charlie's L'Etoile Vert was a wonderful experience! We started with the she-crab soup which was one of the best we have had. It was super creamy and full of delicious crab. A refreshing salad, which was included in the meal, was the next course. My entree' was the flounder Meuniere. It was delicious! My husband ordered the filet and he really enjoyed it. We ordered their wonderful caramel cake to take home with us and it was also wonderful! Besides the excellent food, the service was impeccable. Jarred and Michelle took great care in serving us. They spaced out each course by watching over us constantly, it seemed. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend Charlie's and can't wait to return!
