I've been. They are not famous for their food. Its a nonstop party. They have waitresses with whistles and they sell shots. If you pay ($3) she will go up to whoever you chose and give them a shot and do silly things to thing like shaking their head and everyone yells like this is so much fun. They have a sound system and people dance. Basically its a big drunk, but I do think its something to see once. If you are in the mood you will probably have a blast. Basically that's what it is...
We recently we went to Carlos 'N Charlies in Aruba. What a blast. Keep in mind we are not the "party type" but we had a great time. Lots of games and interaction with the staff. Don't be shocked by the dancing on tables. Have a great time
If you're looking for a drunken party wild time, then it is THE place to go. However, it's not a family place, and if you're not into that, I don't think you'll like it. If you do, then you'll have a blast (from what I've heard).
YES...My family went to the one in Aruba. We did not know what kind of place it was and we took our children there (7 & 8yrs.old)!!! We were dropped off by a taxi and didn't know where else to go so we stayed and held our breath the whole time. The funny thing about it is our kids will tell you one of the funnest parts of their trip was when they went to C&C's!!! My husband and I loved the place for ourselves and it didn't end up being that bad for the kids...we didn't stay that long. Kids really liked their Sprite in the "yard long" glasses. Definitely go. You will have a blast.
I have been to the one in Cozumel. What a blast!!!!!!!!! Def. not the place to go if you arent into partying but if you are you will have fun. We went and ate, drank, danced, then went to Fat tuesdays near the pier so we wouldnt miss the boat. They have a drink called 360 that is great!!
