A word from Charley's Steak House - Tampa
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 1000 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! Continued

  • "Special thanks to waitor Brandon. Great service, great food, great time."

  • "Very nice hint of smokiness to the wood fired grills on which the steaks are cooked. Impressive seafood tower was plentiful and delicious."

  • "I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and it was a very good experience. The ambiance was thrown off a bit because the windows we sat next to overlooked a nearby hotel dumpster but other than that everything was great. The service was phenomenal and our server made great recommendations on food and wine. I had the bison and it was awesome. It is a little pricey but it was worth it. This is a very good place for special occasions. I will definitely be going back."

  • "Arrived for a 6pm reservation and was not seated in a very good location. The wait staff assembled directly behind us. The room was basically empty when we arrived and a much better table should have been offered. Nothing special offered for the occasion."

  • "1. The food quality was just OK. The creamy spinach and filet mignon we're not the best ones we ha tried. 2. We do not mind paying high prices when the food is excellent. 3. When making the reservation I noted that it was my husband's birthday. Most restaurants usually bring a brownie or something to the table or at least a little candle at the end of the dinner. At this restaurant apparently they either select who to treat or they may offer this service. If I had been asked if I wanted something special for my husband I wouldn't mind to pay. Interesting enough, they brought a little dessert and candle to another person to the table next to ours. The waiter new about my husband's birthday because he mentioned it when we arrived."

  • "Food was excellent,but our server Suzi did not live up to fine dinning expectations. We had 3 appetizers, salads, steaks and wine, we were out in less than 1&1/2 hours. Suzi never came to refill our water glasses, and we had to pour our own wine. Needless to say we were so rushed that we didn't even have time to relax and enjoy. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Charleys is always very good. I've never had a bad experience. The food, the service are always above the average steakhouse. We know we will enjoy our entire evening when we choose Charleys."

  • "Had a business dinner for 4 people. Service was excellent, and the food was even better."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "It was our first visit to this restaurant. Great food and service. No complaints, other than two annoying flies that we couldn't keep away from out table or off of our food. The waiter did manage to get one of them for us."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Great steakhouse with good selection of different types of steaks. We had a great waitress who was knowledgable about the wine list as well."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Dinner and accommodations were excellent. Martini's are the best anywhere especially the Hawaiian and Lemon Drop! Steaks were fabulous and server was great too!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Great atmosphere, great service. Food is normally very good, but was not their highest quality this time around. Disappointing considering the price."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The waitress was awesome. I think her name was Susie. The sides were very large and tasted great. The steak, I'm sorry but the flavor to me tasted like plastic smells. I could not eat it at all. I'm being told it was the smoke flavor. We are not fans of the smoke flavor, so maybe that was the problem. But the steak was cooked great, had my medium rare exactly like I like it and my husband had his cooked medium. Was tender, but as soon as the flavor hit and the after taste, wow. Sorry, that was just not for us. But everything else was great."

  • "Wagyu Ribeye was the best steak I've ever eaten and I'm hard to please. Service was fantastic."

  • "Party of 4, tab with tip 599.00 worth every dollar"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Great food, appetizers were superb. The main course, filet mignon, were prepared to perfection. Wait staff was attentive, courteous and professional. Would definitely go again."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The service at Charley's is never disappointing - not particularly exceptional but never less than high level. The food, on the other hand, deserves more than a double negative. It's awesome - possibly the best steaks in town; crab cakes to die for; great wine selection (especially for people like me who love good wine but don't know how to select it). Back to the service - their sense of timing is always excellent. This particular trip was a business meeting to get acquainted with a job candidate. They sensed right away that we needed time to talk without many interruptions, and they accommodated it perfectly. Awesome job."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We went for a 60th birthday and we were sadly disappointed. Potatoes were cold, and salads soggy. Three out of four of our steaks were ok, and even though the 4th was replaced that was not good for a first visit. Probably won't be returning."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Went here for a special occasion. It felt like the server was pressuring us to order the most expensive items on or off the menu. She was good at what she did but I didn't like spending $500 on dinner for 4 people. Will not go back or recommend to others based on this expierance."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Although our evening was good, our food was delayed for over 40 minutes. A manager did come by and comp drinks for us but those were long gone by the time our food arrived. The food itself was excellent. Minor issue but unexpected for Charley's."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "the steak was under cooked. the service was very good. the prices are very reasonable for upscale restaurant. overall the service and the quality of food was very good."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "To pricy for the amount and quantity of food. Staff is pushy with higher priced options. Every little thing is an extra....."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Been coming for years but this was the first disappointing Talk of the Town experience. Steaks were lukewarm at best, my wife was charged for my Father's Day Meal (even though my daughter was in attendance and he said it was free), and the server, while not "bad" was neither friendly nor accommodating. It was not the most pleasurable experience. We should have gone to Texas Cattle instead."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Excellent food,atmosphere and service. We went with 11 people in the recent past and the food was excellent, the service amazing and everyone had a great time. Kirby our wait or was wonderful"

  • "Took clients fo rthe first time. Totally impressed! Great service Great food. If you want to treat someone to something special Charley's is the place."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I had my first steak at Charlie's. Until then, I was a regular at the Capital Grille. Guess what? I will be coming back to Charlie's and going to the Capital Grille less often. Steak and lamb were excellent as was the side (fried green tomatoes). Best of all was the grilled gator. Service was efficient, attentive and made the meal all that more enjoyable!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Our steaks was not cooked to our liking but the service was good. Maybe next time our steak will be as good as the service."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Food is always excellent, servers friendly and bartenders interactive. Fantastic place for couple or with friends!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The waiter would not accommodate my requests which was a suggestion given to me by Adam the bartender who has been there about 7 years. The steak was $32. I wanted the mixed grill(which i get a lot) with added sea bass to get to $32. The waiter said no. I had to get the $42 sea bass which was no where as good as I would have liked my first choice. he aslo just gave us our check without asking if we wanted dessert."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Our visit to Charley's was superb. We arrive at our reservation time and was taken in almost immediately. Our waiter was attentive without being obtrusive. His knowledge of the menu is what one expects of a great restaurant. The food wast tasty and prepared exactly to our orders. I recommend Charley's to anyone seeking a delightful dining experience."

  • "classic steakhouse and more fantastic sea food selection wine list is world class"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "As usual, the food was great at Charley's. I have eaten there for years and have never had a bad meal. The steak remains the best in the area. The service was very slow and they were not as attentive as they normally are. This could be do to it being Father's Day and it was busy."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "From the time we stepped in the restaurant, the staff was accomodating. I use the online service Open Table often to make reservations for area restaurants for work but somehow, this reservation was booked on the wrong date. Although the restaurant was very busy, the hostess was very gracious and accomodated our reservation. Kudos to her for saving a first time experience. She has earned the restaurant a repeat customer. As the restaurant is reputed as one of the best, the food and service was as expected for this caliber of restaurant-a bit more attention to detail would have put it in the outstanding category (offering more bread, refilling drinks, server forgot my coffee). We had the scampi app, angus ribeye, ny strip and dessert."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "One of the best dinners I have had here in years, seems the issues of the past may have been taken into context and worked through. Like all places sometimes you have very good nights and then ok. This night was excellent and just wanted to thank Carl for the evening."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Really enjoyed the whole dinner. Steak and lobster were both perfect."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Charley's never disappoints. I've eaten here several times and have always had a great meal. If you like filet mignon, be sure to hare the center cut 20 oz filet with someone. It's terrific!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We hadn't had a date night in awhile and Charley's really came through for us. Our waiter was knowledgable and hospitable. Their claim to have the best crab cakes in town is credible. The were delish! We will definitely be back. This time with friends!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Went for a enjoyable dinner and to compare to berns and council oaks. I was totally disappointed with the service, the food and the management. We had problems with our salads very gritty and no flavor. The server spilled a full glass of water on my son and my daughter steak was totally over cooked. The manager said sorry and basically that was it. We will not go back as berns and council oaks are much better."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "My husband and I went here for our anniversary. Other than the host we were treated with a very snobbish attitude. Our waiter was very little help to us but seemed to be bubbly when he spoke to tables that had ordered more expensive things. The food was good, especially the potatoes, but everything else about the experience didn't impress us."
