My wife have been going to Charlie's for 8 years. This is the BEST lunch on the Island. Always great food and consistent. The best May River fried oysters, scalloped potatoes, nice salads, fish of the day & much much more. The bonus is the lunch prices are a very good value because you get a full dinner at lunch....

A regular stop every time we come to Hilton Head, Charlie's L'Etoile Verte is consistently terrific. Beautifully prepared food served in a cozy environment that feels like the French countryside. Great fish, but also great meats and sides. Potatoes are special and save room for delicious desserts. Outstanding wine list and always great service.

This restaurant offers truly excellent food. It mostly specializes in seafood, but offers other dishes as well. Service is very attentive. Wine list is complete. Just be prepared to pay for this level of delivery, it's an expensive restaurant, best reserved for special occasions.

Lovely atmosphere although a bit high priced on menu items. Portions are generous. Outstanding creme caramel, potatoes and table bread. Server assistant Courtney was very friendly and did an excellent job. She made up for where the server was lacking. Some seating areas are more desirable.

The food was SO good. It was beautifully presented and delicious. My husband and I loved the atmosphere and the friendly staff. The pace for the service was, in general, very good. We did have a busser who wanted to remove our plates a little too soon; I hadn't finished eating my food and had merely stopped to converse. The... More

somewhat hard to find at night, but most things are at HH. Well worth the effort! varied menu, heavy on seafood with French flair, each of our party had something different flounder, sword fish, grouper and redfish, all excellent! on top of that, Monday is half price on bottle of wine under $100, what 's not to like/? good service,...

4 of us each had a different entree (3 fish, one f.mignon)-ALL excellent. One had a dairy allergy so they provided double veg instead of potato au gratin. Unhurried service with friendly (but not hovering) staff. Extensive wine collection with moderate to high end selections. French-American food focus. Nice way to start our stay for a long weekend. Highly recommend.

After a personally difficult day in Hilton Head, we needed a great place for dinner. I had been at Charlie's 15 years earlier at a different location but this did not disappoint. The food and service was outstanding. Don't let the French name scare you off, the portions are good size and the menu is broad. Fabulous seafood.

Without a doubt this was the best meal we have had since on our trip to Hilton Head Island! I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor, checked out the menu and knew this was one place we would head to on our trip. When we pulled into the parking lot it looked like we would be going into someone's... More
