We came into town for the day to celebrate a birthday. We chose Charlie's because of its incredible reputation and we were not disappointed. Nikki was our wonderful waitress and helped to make the experience even that much better. The food was spectacular. We were ready to move in. Thank you for a fantastic time. We will be back.

Our family group of 10 had an amazing time at Charlie's for Easter Brunch. The service was perfect, the food outstanding and the room beautiful. From 26 to 95, all were so happy to be there and share the Easter meal. We could not have had a better experience. Our server even took a wonderful photo of the family on the deck. And, all of the received a long stem pink rose at the end of brunch. Highly recommend .

Anniversary dinner. Waitress and staff were very friendly and attentive to every need. Very nice bar area and dining room views overlooking twilight lake. A little pricey but worth it overall. Would recommend.

Nice location, friendly staff, food was good (which is expected at an upscale restaurant). I was anticipating a better selection for the dessert menu and was a little disappointed as we were celebrating an event and likely would have had something wonderful to finish our meal. If they had posted the desserts on the website, frankly we may have chosen another location. It was a nice dining experience, but for us, not memorable. Parking is also a bit of a challenge (note: they did offer a complimentary valet service) as well.

Cassandra was fabulous. We started with burrata- not a good idea, too early for tomatoes, needed more bread. But deviled eggs with jumbo lump crab were a hit again and the homemade guacamole was to die for. Lamb chops had a great mint pistachio oesto, but it soaked into the farro and wasn't any for the lamb. Pork chop was perfect as was the halibut and lobster rolls. Get the pillow donuts for dessert!

Excellent service (especially Nikkii), excellent food and great atmosphere. The crab cake appetizer was the best my wife’s ever had and the ribeye was cooked to perfection as was the salmon with dill sauce. This will likely become our special occasion place.

Was seated at a table for 5 in front of the kitchen, half booth half chairs an asked to be moved because we weren’t comfortable. Hostess said she would ask. When she returned she said she could not move us. There were six empty tables of four. Waitress came to take our drink order an asked how we were doing so we told her what the hostess had said. She told us to wait a minute she would be right back an that they were not very busy tonight. Manager came over an said no problem he could seat us at one of the other tables. The waitress was so nice an on top of everything. Sorry I can’t say much for the hostess. The food was very good especially the soft shell crab appetizer. Filets were very good but Prime 13 has better beef. Dorrry to say won’t be going back to Charlies

Lovely restaurant to celebrate a special occasion--a birthday and two engagements. Very busy on a Saturday night by 6:00. Checked in with hostess for our reservation wasn't until 6:30. She checked me in and just told me to notify her when my party arrived. Got a comfortable leather chair by the waterfall to enjoy a drink with my husband. Cocktail waitress was efficient. My children arrived with their fiances and we were brought upstairs. Lara, our waitress, was efficient and thoughtful. At the end of the night, she had "Congratulations" spelled in chocolate on both my chidren's desserts and "Happy Birthday" on my husband's--he hates that so it was fun for he could not blame any of us!!! Food was delicious and just the right size portions. Bit pricey but worth it for a special night. Definitely will go back soon.

From beginning to end the evening could not have been nicer. The cocktails were delicious sitting in front of the fireplace. We were given a lovely table by the window. We went out on the balcony overlooking the Barnegat Bay and took pictures. The Maitre D’ and wait staff were very professional and courteous. We all thoroughly enjoyed our dinners and dessert.

Charlie’s has great atmosphere and always lots of people on the weekends.. service was excellent on our last visit but my burger was a little too charred and my flatbread was good but not excellent. My cousin loved his halibut entree.. The bread pudding was in fact excellent.. it’s the place to go to mingle at the bar or go on a romantic dinner with your significant other!
