A word from Charley's Steak House and Seafood Grille - Kissimmee, FL
Charley's Steak House is owned by the Woodsby family and has operated in Florida since 1974.

The steaks are then flame-broiled over Florida citrus and oak wood in a custom-built pit at 1200º searing in the tantalizing taste that has made Charley’s the #1 steakhouse in America every year since 2007! Charley’s philosophy of providing only the finest extends from the kitchen to the wine cellar. The wine list approaches 500 selections from scores of exceptional wineries around the globe. Charley’s has been recognized with numerous awards including “Best of Award of Excellence” from Wine Spectator magazine, DiRōNA and Orlando Magazine’s“ Best Steak House & Best Old Favorite”.

    When I go to an upscale restaurant, I expect several things including being served prime beef. Charley's ads and menu specify prime beef. But, the truth is that most of their beef is choice. Frankly, getting choice for what other more prominent steak houses (i.e. Ruth's Chris, Morton's and New York Prime) charge for prime is not satisfactory. Other than the ambiance and the service, the food was no better than Lone Star.

    The restaurant is nice looking and gives the feel of fine dining but the food is good but not excellent. This was the second time I ate here. Last time I ordered lobster tail an it was a little tough not tender like it should be. The other night I ordered filet mignon figuring that it is a steak house so i should order steak. My filet was flavorful but not tender or juicy. It was a dry piece of meat which was disappoointing. The baked potatoe was very good and they gave us a free slice of Birthday cake as we were celebrating a birthday. All in all the experience of dining there is lovely but the food is just adequate.

    I'll start by saying the service and preparation were excellent. Maybe my party and I are too simplistic however we enjoy tasting the meat and seafood we order instead of having everything masked with a seasoning salt. The beef and bison were done to perfection but the seasoning overpowered the flavor to the point they tasted the same. The same seasoning was applied to the lobster and grouper which destroyed the taste of both. Coming from out of town and thinking we were in for a real treat we were very disappointed. Based on the presented freshness and quality of the cuts and seafood and the price, this was a bad and very costly experience.

    The overall experience was great, we went there with 17 people (the entire family) to celebrate the last day of our vacation. The food was exceptional and Owen was an outstanding waiter. The only issue we had was they seemed to be having problems getting our checks right. We usually expect some mistakes when we go with 17 people but this was a little excessive. Our checks were brought back 4 times and were still wrong so we finally decided just to pay them as is and settle up with each other later. It took over an hour from the time we received our first check to the time we received our fourth check, which still wasn't right. It was disappointing but in NO way will it stop us from going back every time we come down here for vacation.

    my wife and i went to Charley's just 3 days ago (10/21/14). it was a Tuesday the staff was over run obviously they had a thin crew on; not expecting a full house. Our waitress had 4 or 5 tables and was definitely spaced out. I'm not sure if she ever checked in on us. The rest of the staff going by stepped up and made sure we had a great meal & service. The kitchen put out all amazing food. We order a 20 oz filet to split this maybe one of the most difficult pieces of meat to cook. Perfection!! all the food was amazing. one of the off duty bartenders took care of us said she wanted to make sure we had a great meal. I guess the only person unaware of this was our waitress bent over the other tables for tips.Only server in a microskirt

    we went for a special dinner for a family members birthday. Only six in our party. The food and drinks were amazing. But the service was only average. We had to ask for things like the bread basket that never came to the table. Little things that shouldn't have been ignored considering the price of the dinner. The food though was amazing! I have an 18oz bone in fillet and it was like butter!

    Steak was outstanding, however, I had wished that I knew it would be pre-seasoned as I found the meat to be overly salty. Will need to remember to ask for the steak not seasoned next time.

    it was my daughter's 30th birthday. reservation was for 8pm. the reso was made through open table and they seemed confused and asked our name several times. we were told our table would be ready shortly - were finally seated at 8:20! the amazing thing was we were in an empty section where there were at least 5 tables for 4 unoccupied. we were sat well away from the rest of the diners squeezed into a place where there was a service table - very curious. service was friendly but very slow. appetizers were lukewarm. we asked if we could substitute potatoes & veggies for the starter salad and told yes. the potatoes & veggies came 25 minutes before the meat - AND we were charged for them! no birthday recognition.

    Went 2 times in the week I was in Orlando Monday niight they "butchered" the lobster tails. Very expensive "rubber" to eat. The second time with a second group it was much better. They were quite accommodating when we wanted to share the Wagu beef, salads, etc. No seafood was ordered (It is a steak place after all). Recommended a very good Malbec at a reasonable price. Steaks were great. So maybe the best cooks aren't there on Monday nights. They do need a night off.

    Service was inattentive initially, so much so that the floor manager felt it necessary to comp our cocktails. The waiter seemed a bit mystified. Filet was fine, bone-in ribeye not so much. First lobster tail arrived under-cooked, 2nd one was fine. $195 including tip for 2.

    The food was good, if a little too much. Less is often more as they say. The biggest problem was how pushy the staff were. A little bit of selling is understandable, but this place went too far in that regard. The techniques employed to sell the wine for instance was similar to a cold call door to door salesman. It was not a pleasant experience, and saying no required a lot more force that I was comfortable with.

    We recently dined at Charley's on the 192, as a party of 10, varied ages. Food was excellent, service was exceptional, thank you Rachel & John. We tried the Surf & Turf which was fabulous, both meats cooked to perfection. The rest of the party had different meals, everyone really enjoyed their food. We have been visiting this restaurant chain since 1992 and the standards have never dropped, it's no surprise that they win so many well deserved awards. The best steakhouse in America! Thank you & see you again soon!

    Went to Charley's for my birthday last week. We had a great dinner -- excellent, juicy steaks, hot sides and fantastic desserts. The NY style cheesecake was the best my husband has had at a restaurant (almost as good as mine). Wait staff was very attentive to all the tables near us, but everyone stopped to wish me a Happy Birthday - at least there was no embarrassing singing. The background music of standards was just that -- in the background so it was no hindrance to talking. The recommended bacon wrapped scallop appetizer was also exceptional if you like LARGE scallops.

    I was told about Charley's by a co-worker in 1988. I have visited all of them. I live in West Palm Beach, Fl and come to Charley's several times a year. This was for my anniversary and I took two friends who never been. All I can say is they were very impressed with the food and are now hooked. A+++++++++++.

    After an experience not worth mentioning at the Lakeland Texas Cattle Company (A dressed up Denny's) it was apparent it was worth a ride for our next celebration. To be short & to the point, Charlie's exceeded expectations on every level. We arrived at the time of the reservation and seated immediately (Lkld Tx Cattle makes you wait). The wait staff seems to be matched to the quest because "Chad" was superb. The steaks cooked perfectly. I could go on but some of your visit should be a pleasant surprise. Enjoy!

    We found Charley's by accident about 10 years ago. After arriving at a different restaurant that had been recommended, we took one look at it and decided it was not the place for us. Our son said he had seen a steakhouse down the road and we ended up at Charley's! Now, we try to visit whenever we are in the Orlando area. Always great food and service. Our most recent visit did not disappoint! The manager made a special point to greet us at our table. Server was personable and attentive. Prices are in line for the quality of food served. It is a special treat for our family to go there. Looking forward to our next visit. Try the lobster bisque!

    What a nightmare! We went there for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We ordered the surf and turf for two. We ended up with the toughest lobster tail we ever had and the poorest excuse for a steak. Nowhere on the menu did it say that we were going to have s take that was drenched in liquid smoke. They took what was supposed to be a fine cut of meat, drenched it in liquid smoke and smoked it in a smoker. It tasted and smelled disgusting. I have never heard of anyone smoking meat to the point that it tasted like a $50 piece of beef jerkey! Not much more to say about a terrible experience. I gag just thinking about it. We will never go back.

    Went to Charley's the last night of our family vacation to Florida. there are not enough words to say how pleased we were with this place. Appetizers (scallops, tuna and lobster bisque) very tasty. The Steaks cooked perfectly and delicious. At first i thought 22oz. steak? but I could eat it all day!! Chocolate lava and cheese cake kept the family smiling right through desert as well.
