Liked this place from staying in ocnj however i didnt find the bartender old man to be that friendly. he had personality of a stale piece of cardboard.... im thinking if you're not a local he doesnt give you same treatment which isnt right, you're...in customer service. Food, drinks and rest of atmosphere good. We played music through touchtunes while watching thursday night football. I'd go back maybe next time bartender will smile and be friendly.More

My wife and I went to Charlie’s for lunch and must say it was fantastic. We both ended up having the same thing . We both had filet mignon sandwich’s and boy were they delicious! We would go back in a heartbeat. Service was great...as well .More

We always visit Charlie’s when we vacation every year near by in OCNJ. Staff is friendly and food is great. Our favorites is are the Wes Favorite Sandwich and the BTT wings!

Due to current circumstances i had to take out from Charlie's. They took my order early in the day for pick up and explained the process. I arrived and there were people in the parking lot directing me on where to pull up and park....Someone else came to my car with a mask on and asked for my name that my order was under and within 7 minutes I had my giant double order of boneless wings and I was on my way to the beach. Know two things: Place your order early or risk not getting your order taken for the day. Bring Cash because thats all they take.More

We love Charlie’s so we were glad they were offering take out. We got chicken wings and tenders and onion rings. Everything was very good and they had everything packed and brought it out to the car. Don’t forget they are cash only!

This was the first time here, and it would have been the last if someone else at the table didn’t get a good meal. The crab cake sandwich I got was not good. The thick crust on it tasted like stale oil. I didn’t feel...well after eating some of it. On the good side we’re the fries, chicken wings and chicken sandwich. I’d try the place again but definitely stay away for the crab cake.More

Brings years of experience to every facet of business. Have enjoyed Charlie's for lunch and dinner over many years. Staff is friendly and efficient. Drinks are better than just OK. Food is the attraction. Don't pass up the soups. Red clam chowder is excellent. Sandwiches...are terrific; chicken cheese steak unparalleled. Prices are fair. Parking convenient. Cant miss at this locals' favorite.More

Typical sports bar. They do have a shuffle board. Not sure why restaurants do this, but here when you sit at the bar, you order drinks from the bartender, but food from a separate waiter/waitress - and my waitress was nowhere to be found. And...then again, when ready for my check. sitting at the bar, you have to flag her down to get her attention. Having said that, they serve lunch specials till 4 pm. The food was decent. The She Crab soup was OK, but a little too thick. The grilled sea scallops were good and came with rice and broccoli.More

Charlies is a great spot in Somers Point - fun atmosphere. The food and drinks are good and reasonably priced. The only downside is they only take cash and parking lot is always packed and they do not take reservations.

I’m almost sure it does. Haven’t been there but your best bet is to call them. Great place.

I’m not sure about their gift cards. Your best bet is to call them but I think they are closed on Monday and Tuesday. Stay well and stay safe.

You must have me mixed up with someone else, in my review I never said that Charlies was on the water and therefore has a view. I have lived in this area all my life.
