    Joined several friends for a Friday night dinner. Made reservations and were seated immediately. Service was top notch and the chicken piccata was better than I've had at high end restaurants. Friend ordered salmon that was prepared better than at upscale restaurant recently. Perfection! Will definitely keep this on my list of top restaurants in the area.

    I've driven by this place a million times - just thought it was time to give it a try, really glad we did. We shared a bowl of clam chowder. This clam chowder did not come out of a can, it was made with cream and loaded with chewy little clams, a few in each spoon. Garnished and seasoned perfectly. Good start, I'm hopeful that our entrees are as good. Server Scott was right on the money with drinks arriving before the previous ones were empty. New glasses each time, like that. I had the citrus chicken on angel hair with fresh steamed veggies. The chicken was two breast medallions well saturated with lemony marinade, a nice portion of angel hair pasta, and crisp veggies. Finished with key lime pie on house made graham crust... WILL BE BACK.

    We have loved the ribs here for years, but the quality has become hit or miss of late. And the price? Well, they've gone from $19 to $20 to $22 in the last couple of years. Not cool.

    I met up with a friend on a Thursday night whom I had not seen in 30+ years. We told the server when we sat down and she was very patient and accommodating. She kept our glasses filled, we did not have to wait for our food, the noise level wasn't overpowering so we were able to talk, the food was very good, exactly as ordered and was hot and delicious. I would definitely recommend.

    I have been coming to this restaurant since 1991 and the service and food is always great. I love seeing a non-cain restaurant being able to stay open for that long without cutting quality at all, it's hard to find today. Would defiantly recommend.

    Service was good but the food was bad enough that I complained. For me that doesn't happen very often but the prime rib that was $22 was very tuff and dry. That is not acceptable when paying above prices for a good meal.

    When my wife and daughter wanted to take me out to dinner to celebrate Fathers Day, Charleston's was the first place that entered my mind. We all enjoy ourselves every time we visit your restaurant. The food is always first class and the wait staff is second to none. Jason was our server Sunday and as is typical of your restaurant, we were well taken care of.

    Outstanding visit! Greeted warmly, had the reservation including a change, seated promptly. Server, Jason, did a great job and was efficient. Food was great tonite; we both had the short smoked salmon with rice and salad. We each had a glass of wine. We shared a brownie/ice cream dessert. We missed the little mints, but really a very nice visit!

    We arrived around 5:30 and were surprised how full it was, but quiet. Obviously at this hour it is popular with the older crowd (moi)! Prices were very reasonable and the food was good. the vegetables were not overcooked. We shared key lime pie that was very good, too. We would definitely return the next time we visit Indianapolis.

    When we arrived they placed us in the bar and for normal dining, I wouldn't mind; however, it is loud in the bar and the booth width was very cramped. We were celebrating my moms bday and my brother couldn't sit comfortably in the booth. They did move us when a table was available into the dining area and it was much better and quiet. The waitress didn't enter our appetizer and the food arrived prior. If we hadn't pointed out, she wouldn't have realized. She was friendly, but over talked during our conversations and didn't listen well. My mother had bariatric surgery and I like smaller portions so we always split...Charlestons brings an extra plate for us to split. It's the small things that make a difference...food is always delicious.

    My husband and I had a reservation for Mothers Day lunch. As we got to the desk we were immediately asked if we would mind sitting in the Bar. We felt somewhat pressured to do so, and figured there was not room in the dinning area. We agreed to sit in the Bar but regretted that choice as it was noisy and lacked the ambiance of the dinning room. We noted that there obviously was plenty of space in the dinning area as many were seated there quickly after entering the restaurant. The food and service were fine but if we return we definitely will not sit in the bar area on a special occasion.

    We went with a 1 year old and four adults. The server took extra care with the 1 year old, and we all got food that was very tasty. Just so you will know, the pizza is the only true vegetarian entree (other than salads). Most every other main dish had meat (the pizza did too, but you could leave it off if you didn't want it). Other than having few vegetarian options, it was a very good meal.

    My first visit to this restaurant. Selected it mainly because it was in walking distance of my hotel. Had the tortilla soup and Champagne Chicken Salad. They were able to customize it; I requested they 86 the cheese. The dinner salad was excellent. I will have to visit again and try some of the other menu items.

    The BBQ ribs were tender and the meat came eaisly off of the bone. The BBQ chicken had a lot of flavor, but could have used a little more sauce on it, but I understand why it did not so that people could sauce to taste. The pork chops were a little too dark on the outside,and the flavor was not as good as I have had before, The chops were tender,but the flavor was a little off. The bake potato was hot which is the way that I like it. My granddaughter's steak was cooked the way we ordered it, but even for a child's menu portion, the steak was very small. woulkd have liked to have had a bigger portion.,

    We had the Short Smoked Salmon (2 of us), Ribs N Chicken Combo and the Beef Tip special. The Baked Potato soup and the rolls are awesome! The salmon was cooked perfectly. The ribs and chicken (huge portion) -moist and tender & good flavor. The beef tips were very tender but not a fan of the sauce. A little over powering. We shared the Key Lime Pie - tart and refreshing & the bread pudding - AMAZING. They brought my husband a chocolate sundae with a candle in it for his birthday. Our waitress was attentive but not hovering (big plus). All in all a great experience.
