“Every time you walk into Good Charlie’s, we want you to have the PERFECT experience,” shared Hallers. Charlie Inman from Tapped Drafthouse & Kitchen partnered with Hallers to create a seafood experience unique to our community. “We brought in the Executive Chef from Truluck’s, and he is a master in the kitchen. Our secret is the chargrilled oysters! Watch as they are grilled from our bar!”

In addition to the dining experience, patrons can reserve the Captain’s Room for a unique occasion accommodating up to 40 people. Come in for a drink after work with friends and watch the oysters grilled at the bar. Raw oysters are flown in daily from their natural habitat in the northern part of the country. The restaurant consumes over 800 oysters a day!

No oyster eatery is complete without a wide selection of beer on tap from local and state breweries. Good Charlie’s Oyster Bar and Seafood is an upscale and classy venue to meet friends, eat great oysters and seafood, without the upscale fee. View the menu and be ready to order at
