Clearwater Charlie’s, the ultracasual Bellmore restaurant with the motto “Eat it and beat it,” has closed. When it opened last year, it was the source of a more than respectable lobster roll for only $10 as well as fine soft corn fish tacos, three for about $5.
A cryptic message on its website reads “ We would like to regretfully inform you that at this time Clearwater Charlie's will remain closed for an indefinite period of time. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to reopen Charlie's as-is and are working on alternate solutions.”
Clearwater Charlie's was situated across from the LIRR elevated tracks on Pettit Avenue in Bellmore.
