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.

We always visit Charlie’s every year on our vacation. The portions are definitely smaller than usual for sides. 🙁
I ordered Mahi-it was too salty and the filet was dry. It’s usually my absolute favorite entree. I was disappointed this year.
My husband had the trigger fish-he loved it.

Very disappointed. Salads were brought out wilted and hot couldn’t eat them. Soup was lukewarm. Fish was sub par at best. Will stick with lunch there. Too expensive for dinner with this poor quality.

Charlie’s was business as usual with social distancing. All servers wore masks, everything was sanitized between customers. We felt safer there than at some outdoor settings on the island.

Charlie's remains to me the best dining experience on the Island. Great seafood selections. Nice wine list including a good selection of half bottles. Service is top notch. Their adaption to the Covid reopening plan was the best of the seven restaurants where we had dinner during our just completed vacation.
