We were seated fairly promptly. But it took 45 minutes to get a bread basket. I asked 3 waitresses for a bar napkin to get rid of my gum and did not get it. Our waitress finally gave me an old receipt to deposit my gum. I ordered Blue points, they were fresh but the smallest I've ever seen eating out. I ordered trout and it was small also. My wife had scallops which also was a small portion. The drinks were over priced, I had a Rusty Nail with little or no scotch, very disappointing. I don't remember the waitresses name but she provided very poor service. Food was average over priced and minimal. Charley's Crab is nothing like it used to be. How sad!

PS I did get a call from the manager about my poor review on their site, she claimed we were comped so I assume the waitress pocketed the cash. She didn't offer anything more and seemed to not believe me.

Pros: Nice ambience.

Cons: Poor service, small portions, very expensive.

Wonderful seafood restaurant. It is one of Chuck Muer's restaurants. Make sure you start with Charleys chowder, and oyster bar. I have never had such fresh oyster in my life. They print the menu daily. This is an indication that they only serve the freshest food each day. The atomosphere is great, too. The building is converted from old mansion.

Charley's Crab is BACK! My favorite restauarant as a kid, it went downhill there for a while, but now it's better than ever! My date and I had such a wodnerful time the other night, and we will definately return soon. I have to give credit to our server, Paul, who was one of the best waiter's we have ever had. He was so friendly and attentive and everything was perfect! It was Wednesday Night and they have a special for Half Off EVERY bottle of wine! what a wonderful surprise and bargain that was! We were able to enjoy a wine we would not normally drink at a restaurant! I love Lobster and Paul was kind enough to deshell it for me. We really liked the special appetizer and the Chocolate Truffle Cake as Dessert. The bartender, Jen, was also very friendly and efficient when we were waiting for our table at the bar.

Pros: Half Off Bottles of WINE on Wednesdays!

Cons: The chairs are not very comfy.

Boy if you ever went to the original on Pine Lake you would appreciate how difficult it is to catch that "classic one time ambiance" but though Muer is gone this place still feels great, the food is excellent the service wonderful and Bob Seally's rag time is to die for.... no not the original ( part of a huge chain) but the chowders as good.... I'd finish off a great bottle of wine and a bucket of steamers lisening to jazz here any time ...here'e to you boss!!! Kaz

Went there because I was craving "Charley's Chowder" (very very good) and had an excellent meal but I have had the same and better for less money. This is a place I would recommend only on a special occasion as you can get better value (without the Chowder) at the many Royal Oak / Ferndale area Restaurants. Also they need to update their menu as I have been eating the same things there since I was a kid with my parents and there was nothing "Year 2000" on the menu. Again not bad in any way.

Pros: Consistant, Service, Charleys Chowder

Cons: Boring Menu, Lots of Old People

I've eaten lunch at Charley's Crab twenty times and never had a bad experience. The seafood/fish is consistently fresh, and the service is reasonably knowledgeable. Certainly, CC is considerably better than its sister restaurants, Big Fish on 14 Mile & in Dearborn.

Pros: fresh fish, power location, reasonably priced

My Husband took me here about a year ago, and although the food was good, albeit, not terrific, we tried it once again. Same service, same prices same overrated place. Will take our business elsewhere in the future.
