Great steak & seafood house. Service is excellent; hot, fresh homemade bread; extensive salad bar. A bit pricey but you always get a consistently outstanding meal. We visit Charley's every time we're visiting g Ft. Myers Beach.

Food was good as was the service. Can be noisy, but that is expected at a restaurant located in a resort area.
