A busy spot, even on Monday evening. We called ahead 30 minutes before as they do not take reservations for parties of less than six, but do offer call ahead seating. They have a very fresh and comprehensive salad bar, with iceberg lettuce, romaine and baby spinach. Numerous toppings, include Parmesan cheese shreds, marble cheese, bacon, olives, and every vegetable... More

The first thing you notice is their salad bar - every possible combination to make up your salad. Very enjoyable meal, prime rib was fantastic, waitress was very friendly. Would recommend if staying locally or after time at the beach. Was a little pricey but very enjoyable.

Had the Early Bird special Saturday eve. I think it's 5:30-6:30. They have 8-10 items to choose from at a reduced price. Salad bar s awesome. Bread to die for. I had stuffed flounder and my wife had blackened shrimp. Both very good. Service great. Highly recommend this place. Oh and they have done a nice interior remodel.

Charley's Boat House and Grill is a Fort Myers institution. The salad bar is chock-full of choices. There are many excellent selections on the menu. Great place, but it is very busy.

Was in town for a week. Wanted to try some of the local fare so we went here. It was so good we went twice! We rarely do that because we want to experience the whole restaurant scene. I can't say enough about the early bird. A full rack of ribs, baked potato, and nice fresh salad bar for 20... More

The service was very good, but the food was just OK. The salad bar was OK, but nothing special. The dining room itself was, also, just OK.

We stumbled on this restaurant by chance after almost giving up on finding a good place to eat on Fort Myers Beach. The food was good, reasonably priced and the service very friendly. Really liked the salad bar, which was included in the price of the meal. I had great seared tuna and would liked to have had chips, but... More

Wow. This gem has been around for a long time; they have a diverse menu. My friend had the T-Bone, I had the Filet; both could melt in your mouth. The Salad bar was also fantastic and service super! A must go to.
