Charlie’s is a must visit when in Exuma and we enjoyed two dinner here this past week. The fried snapper is the best I have ever had and the lobster is delicious and a huge portion as well. The folks at Charlie’s are friendly and...kind every time. Sitting out on the back steps by the water at night is also amazing and one of my favorite things! Thank you for having us and for letting me dance like no one was watching! Can’t wait until our next visit!More

Went here our last night. Wish we had tried it sooner as we would have gone more than once. Charlie’s is in the fish fry area and a real local experience. We got there around 8:00 pm after a long day on the water. You...order food at a counter and then they call you when its’ ready. It took a LONG time before it was ready. I had BBQ wings which were decent. Family had grouper fingers which they really liked. The best part of Charlie’s is the Karaoke on Sun and Wed nights. It really did not get started until 9 pm and the experience depends a lot on the crowd. But we had some locals and tourists who really got into it. We had SO much fun and ended up staying until 12:30 am. Our teenage kids loved it as did we. Got to know a lot of the locals. Definitely try this place on Karaoke night.More

We were heartbroken to find Charlie's closed for vacation when we arrived on the island.. but really, who would fault someone for taking a vacation? We were thrilled to see them open again just before we left. Charlie's is by far the absolute best Bahamian...Home cooking on the island. A visit to Exuma without a visit to Charlie's without a trip to Charlie's just doesn't feel the same! The food is incredible and the staff is super friendly! Karaoke Nights should not be missed. This is an incredible way to spend time with the locals. If you have not enjoyed Charlie's, you really should not be allowed to review them..More

I stayed near there for an entire week and they were never open. Finally one night we walked by and the side kitchen door was open and it was 6:30 pm and i was told by someone in their that they were running late today....Truly on "island time" i guess. Bad for business if you don't know when a place that is advertised as good is either closed or not yet open, no set hours. Sorry we did not get to try it. Shirley is get all their business.More

We are in Exuma often and this is always our favorite! The food is delicious and plentiful. Prices are great and service is friendly and quick. They are only open for dinner and only accept cash. They have a full bar as well. My favorite...dish is the grouper fingers. They are so tender and juicy. Their sides are excellent. We can't wait to be back!!More

I had the grouper fingers one night and the chicken wings another, both were outstanding!! They entrees come as dinners and...you can't beat their sides!! The mac n cheese is amazing!! We also enjoy the Karaoke on Wednesday and Sunday nights. Great place for take out too. My family absolutely LOVES this place!!More

Karaoke at Charlies is on Wednesday and Sunday nights. We usually go a little earlier and have dinner and secure a table. The night usually gets hopping closer to 9ish-10. Lots of fun with the locals. Our favorite dinner... More
