Charlie's Bar

Named for the now passed-on family dog of the owners of Hickatee Cottages, Charlie's Bar is located in the main lobby area, and serves not only as a bar, but a full restaurant as well as information center.


Eat a home cooked meal every time you sit down at Charlie's where fresh ingredients grown right on Hickatee Cottage's very own farm are utilized as often as is possible. The chef offers your choice of two dishes each night, and the menu changes daily, while breakfast consists of a hot plate or a fruit platter.

The bar, though small, is well stocked with local and international offerings, but you won't want to leave without trying Ian's Special Rum Punch, made with fruit juice and three different locally distilled rums.

Charlie's Bar is a popular bar and grill that happens to specialize in eclectic cuisine. As far as service and setting, you can expect the formality to be very casual. This location serves food for both breakfast and dinner, so make time to stop by; you could find a new favorite food.


Surround yourself with tropical scenery in a comfortable setting at Charlie's Bar, where most guests choose to dine out on the deck.


Positioned near the heart of Punta Gorda, Charlie's Bar is a part of Hickatee Cottages.
