Fodor's Expert Review Charlie's Restaurant & Bar

$$$ San Nicolas Caribbean Fodor's Choice

Since 1941, Charlie's Bar has been the heart and soul of San Nicolas, famous for its interior decorated with the eclectic bric-a-brac left behind by decades of international visitors. But it also serves surprisingly good food, including superb fresh fish and shrimp, as well as killer steaks. Charlie's also bottles and sells its own brand of hot sauce called "Honeymoon Sauce." Lunch or a very early dinner are the only options since closing time is generally 6 pm.
