why we are different
What do you do when you need to regroup but you can’t take that much-needed vacation? Barefoot Charlie's Restaurant is all about island attitude at local latitude – a staycation.

The sounds of that classic storyteller, Jimmy Buffett, waft through the building, coaxing visitors to open up and find their island state of mind that he describes so eloquently. Teal plantation shutters cover the windows of the sand-colored stucco building, and inside deco-style wooden tables, chairs, and bar stools are placed throughout. Indeed, the entire décor is designed to remind you of where you want to be. From your table on the back deck, when the weather is right, you can connect with the serenity of the water of Old Hickory Lake. Sure, it is not ocean waves breaking against the shore, but you can imagine.

Barefoot Charlie’s offers fresh, made-from-scratch dishes that reflect that laid-back attitude, with savvy. Our galley crew executes the tropical-inspired menu, from starters to sweet finishes. Don’t stop with the menu – our chefs get to tap their creativity with specials all week. It doesn’t take much money here to buy a license to chill! Enjoy our full-service bar (voted #1 in Sumner County) with a roster of signature tropical cocktails. Watch your favorite sports game on our giant projection screen or one of our flat screens TV’s while enjoying a LandShark or Carib beer. Hook into our free WI-Fi, especially if you are one of those who can take your office with you anywhere. Feeling a little competitive? Golden Tee and shuffleboard are ready to test you. Kids will find much to love as well.
Charlie and Nancy Manis grew up In the Knoxville area, enjoying fun on the lake. As they raised their family, they vacationed with their children around water as well. However, it was not until they vacationed several years ago in the Caribbean Islands that they realized a passion. As Charlie says, it may be hard to explain, but if you have ever sat on the beach, watching the sun set on the ocean while sipping a Pina Colada, then you will understand the feelings. There is a peace of mind and a clarity of perspective that can take over.

The idea for the restaurant all came together on a vacation to the British Virgin Islands. Charlie, Nancy, Dave, and Dave’s wife, Jodi, decided that they wanted to create that environment at home. When you cannot change your latitude, where can you go to change your attitude? In Hendersonville, it is Barefoot Charlie’s. From the moment you walk in, you are transported to that island state of mind.
Jimmy Buffett says it best in “Got Island Fever”:
Palm trees and views I cannot believe
Why would I ever want to leave?
We are looking for those like-minded misfits who are ready to trade their cube views or corner offices to kick back, relax, and escape! Our food is designed with a tropical influence to keep you planted there. Whether you dine inside or out on the patio, we want you to enjoy your escape.
