The food was delicious! We just got back from Hilton Head and Chuck’s seafood was just as good as what we got there. Our waiter Tyler S. was very personable. He had a great sense of humor, made us feel welcome and he also wore a cool apron! We would definitely recommend Chuck’s Fish to anyone looking for a great restaurant in Athens.

It wasn’t the fun place it appears online. The food and drink was wonderful, but the music was depressing and low, and the service was not good. Our server seemed incredibly snooty while delivering low quality service. She was hard to find at times as well we needed her. We were there to celebrate a birthday!!

This was the fourth time we have eaten at Chucks. While it was still very good the food was over salted this time. I'll be back but I will warn the waiter/waitress this time to tell the chef to go easy on the salt.

We were celebrating my sister graduating and this place was the cherry on top of an amazing day! Our server was Tyler and he was THE BEST! Patient, kind and answered all our questions. The food was superb! Great cocktails too! LOVED the sushi we ate. We will definitely frequent it when back in Athens.

Even though it's in a College town, Chuck's Fish could stand with any restaurant in any big city. Food is off the charts. Sushi is as fresh if you brought in right from the ocean. Great value, getting an incredible meal, while still knowing you have to cater to university students and parents!

You can’t beat the location for Chuck’s Fish. We ordered the tuna sushi, which was very good. We also ordered the crab encrusted grouper that was to be served with risotto and asparagus. We requested the tomato sauce on the side. What we received was the crab encrusted grouper over wild rice and the tomato sauce on the fish. We were hungry,, so we didn’t complain and we ate it. It was just fine. Just not what we ordered.

Hands down amazing food. I give everything 5 stars except the drinks. The cocktails are just bad. We have tried them all and they are just not good. My cosmo was watery and had ice in it. The signature cocktails are just trying to hard. Other than the cocktails everything is great every time we eat there. The only food I haven’t loved was the steak and crab with risotto. This was a one off. Haven’t been disappointed with toro

I just think it’s not that great. I make better scallops easily at home, their risotto wasn’t actually risotto, and if I wanted chargrilled asparagus that overpowered every other taste in the plate, I guess I would have ordered that. Their appetizers were good though—good fried green tomatoes and calamari.

By the way, the GA Dept of Health guidelines call for 6 feet between diners and this restaurant is not only blatantly disregarding that, they outright lied about it saying we don’t have to do that anymore when we asked.

Our favorite restaurant in Athens! The food is delicious and creative! With each menu item comes the exclamation “You’ve got to try this!” Fun, lively atmosphere! Exceptional, friendly service! Cost is on par with other top restaurants in town. Do yourself a favor and check it out - you won’t be disappointed and you might just be in the ranks of us who now have our new “must go to” place in Athens!

All the dishes we ordered were outstanding, but the Chef's Special was beyond expectation. It combined high quality with unexpected quantity. This thing was huge. So very pleased with our dinner. Also, during this pandemic period of time, we noted that the staff exercised caution and safety. We felt very safe indoors.
