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. Charley’s serves only three-year-old USDA prime and choice Angus steers, aging them four to six weeks for tenderness & flavor and hand-cutting the steaks daily to ensure consistent quality. 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”. Charley’s has been creating fans from around the world for nearly 40 years. We look forward to having you become a fan soon!

    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.

    My fiance and I came here for our 4 year dating anniversary. I knew to expect high prices but was still a little surprised. The service was great we were seated promptly and never had to wait long for our waiter. The filet was delicious, my only complaint is that all sides are ala carte, so you are paying between 30-60 dollars for a steak then a minimum of 5-15 dollars for a side dish. Other than that they had a good bar selection, huge wine selection if you are into that. Definitely not a place I would go regularly but great for special occasions.

    We have been coming to Charley's for the past 7 years to celebrate a family member's birthday. From our last visit to the visit this past week, the level of service has drastically changed. The lack of attentiveness and interaction with the server were definitely missing. To be honest, we received better service from the gentleman that refreshed our drinks and removed our dishes.

    This place is hands down my favorite steak house in Orlando. They are service driven with great quality products. I will admit that the portion sizes are a little over the top as are all of the others that are in this category, however, they have no problems splitting an entrée and serving it up table side. Their wine stock is impressive and reasonably priced. On this night, I dined with a business friend and requested a quiet table. That wish was granted and the evening started well. For an appetizer, you cannot beat the portabella mushroom sticks with gorgonzola cheese dip. We split a rib eye which is served cowboy style. The waiter did the split at the table and we also shared broccoli and garlic redskins. Overall, a great meal!

    This is our third time going to Charley's. We have been to both locations and can't say enough good things. Giving it 5 stars is a serious understatement. The staff makes you feel like you are the only ones in the restaurant. I can't wait for our next trip back to Florida (from Massachusetts) to go again.

    After looking overall of the recommendations for steakhouses in Orando, we opted for one close by. Even thou it is in the tourist corridor of 192, we felt like we were over in restaurant row in upscale Dr. Phillips. We had a luscious birthday dinner. My husband thought that his ribeye was as good as any he has ever had. The lobster Mac and cheese side, my filet with sautéed mushrooms, side salad,, the wine, sashimi app, all outstanding. We had a lovely evening. Not cheap at $145.00 before tip. Two packaged Shortbread cookies arrived with the manager who made his second stop to see if we were pleased. We will return to try seafood selections whichalso looked appealing. Portions are generous, too

    All the entrees were wonderful. Including steak, chicken, seafood, ahi and pork chops. Salad was very good as well. Our server did an outstanding job and the manager was very helpful making up for an incorrect order. Steak came out instead of pork chops. The chops were brought later. The manager provided deserts for the table. Good recovery for Charleys.
