I always get full after the soup and (snapper!) soup course, and this time I picked an early bird meal I wasn't crazy about.

My parents had a wonderful meal at Charlotte's. They were welcomed in warmly, enjoyed their meals (including a wonderful crab cake). Another highlight was the music playing during the meal.

Great visit! They had a piano player, which was so nice. The waiter was very accomodating, he kept bringing out the all you can eat crabs! Highly recommend.

The food was not at all what I expected. I had the tilapia dinner. The fish was undercooked, and the sauce on top sadly tasted like a desert topping gone bad. The salad was fine, and fresh. Brussel sprouts were so burned that I could not eat them.
I enjoyed the piano music, and the waitress was polite.
Not a place I will visit, again.

I have always had good meals at Charlotte’s. Maybe our past visit was an off night. Both the prime rib & filet we ordered were undercooked. The crab cake however was very good. Will give Charlotte’s another try.

From the moment you walk into Charlotte's you feel the energy from the crowd at the bar. We usually sit in the main room but insist on Nora as our waitress so we had a table in the bar area (kinda noisy!)
Impossible to have tried EVERY item on the menu but whatever I have ordered: duck, crab cakes, clams casino, etc. is perfecto! I am not a meat eater but the portions are huge and little is left on the plate. Some desserts are homemade but the cakes come from a fantastic bakery so order several for the table.....and next time don't forget to ask for Nora (and there WILL be a next time)

What great service from Nora! She was very attentive of our needs especially because we went for all you can eat crabs. They updated the lights this visit. Over the years they are making nice upgrades. Thanks for a great dinner as usual.

We visited Charlotte's on the evening after Valentine's Day and there seemed to be several large parties that monopolized the attention of the employees. Consequently, though there were numerous open tables, we were seated in what appeared to be a converted hallway right next door to the ladies room. Since it was a hallway and since there were a lot of partiers seeking the restroom, there was a good deal of traffic past our table. There is a fine line between prompt attentive service and "hurry up and order" service. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the meal, we felt rushed. The drinks came promptly, the "are we ready to order" inquiry, much too fast. Ditto for the soup and salad. We had hardly tasted our drinks and the excellent bread when they arrived. The entrée also came much too quickly--AND both entrees were WRONG!! So..we had time to enjoy our drinks, after all. And, to make up for the mistake, the next drinks were on the house! Soon, the Chef arrived to apologize for the mixup and all went well from that point on.

The food was absolutely fabulous. Wonderful crab stuffed flounder with just the right texture, taste and appearance. Some of the best seafood I have had anywhere. There is not much else to say. This place is really great (despite the disappointment in the service on this visit). Great value for the price and we suspect on a normal evening the service would be better (as it was on our last visit).

We will definitely come again and again.

The people at Charlotte’s are fantastic. We made reservations on a very crowded night. The owner called us, worked on getting us a table at a time that was good for us, then gave us all the time we needed to have a beautiful dinner. Their waiter Jody is the best. Kind funny and always attentive.

Went to Charlottes on a Tuesday evening for the all you can eat crab legs!! Always one of our favorite times there. We request the same waiter that we've had for years (Jody) so we always know that the service will be outstanding. Delicious salad, roasted potatoes accompany the crablegs...and they are done to perfection. We also enjoy other evenings at Charlottes...in fact had our anniversary dinner there with 10 friends back in the fall...great food and time together. It is really our favorite way-above average restaurant. Our go-to place for favorite entrees and cocktails.

We went for the All-You-Can-Eat (AYCE) crab legs deal. Each time the crabs came out at the right temperature where the meat was easy to extract. This is not the usual case with AYCE crab legs at most restaurants. The side of mussels was also good. Service was very good and our server was attentive to our needs and refills. I will go back again.

My husband, daughter and I went for dinner at Charlottes. It was to celebrate my husband's 74th birthday. We each had a cup of soup of the day with our entrees instead of the salad. I had broiled flounder, my husband had scallops and my daughter had chicken marsala. All were excellent and big portions. We all took leftovers home. We were full and didn't want dessert but they brought us ice cream to share with a sparkler lit in it to celebrate my husband's birthday. Delicious and fun!!

The food was delicious. I had the Long Island Clams - baked with olive oil and garlic - yum! Plus the burrata salad. My husband had the stuffed shrimp which he was really happy with. The only "bad" part was that the food delivery and service was really slow. We'll be back but probably not on a Friday night when the restaurant seems to be really busy.

On Tuesday, my husband and I dined at Charlotte's for his birthday. We have been here three other times and felt that the quality and taste of the food have been better. Also, the service, though it was busy, was pretty slow. We had to wait about 10 minutes before Norah saw us. I'm not sure if she was aware we had requested her. Even after placing our order, it seemed to take a while. My husband got the all you can eat crab legs. With the price increase, the quality of the crab wasn't that good. The first batch were dry but then they got a little bit better. The potato wedges and mussels were good. I had the crab cakes and they were ok. I have had them before but I just didn't think the lobster mousse was as good. We really liked the ratatouille, which wasn't served to us the last couple of times. That may have been our favorite part of the meal. Of course, we needed to order dessert. We got the cookie tower, that was brought out with a sparkler, and several tables sang happy birthday to my husband. We're on the fence as to whether or not we will return.

Our waitress, Maryanne, was especially attentive and responsive from the moment we sat down. Any request we had was met with friendliness.
The food was tasty and well-prepared.
We'll return to Charlotte's again soon.
