My wife took me to Charley's for Father's Day and it was an excellent experience. We started with drinks at the bar where the service was top drawer. Following drinks we were taken to our table where our waitor greeted us and took care of our every request throughout the evening. We had a very nice, liesurely evening. Charley's was an excellent experience from start to finish, we can highly recommend this restaurant.

Food for Thought
My family and I was looking for a great steak restaurant, we thought about Charley's, my brother was here from New York and another family member from Savannah, GA that came for the 4th of July holiday. When we got to Charley's they were very impress with what they saw, and I told them wait until you taste the food. From the server until the time the food hit the table everything was great! and just as I thought my brother's mouth was happy being 6' 2 and all! And that's why I call this food for thought.

What's not to love!?!?!
Great food, great wine, amazing steak. The service is prompt, professional and personal. This is a top notch steak house with everything that you expect from the best. We had the amazing seafood platter for six. We had a variety of steak cuts, each one perfectly prepared and delicious. The deserts were amazing as well. The wine list is extensive and presents you with quality selections in all price ranges.

I have eaten at their previous
I have eaten at their previous location, now closed, but this location WAS excellent. although the lack of salad bar was disappointing.
Steak and salmon were the usual VERY high standard.
Excellent service and ambience.
I come to Charley's every visit to Orlando.

The food was great the steaks melted in you mouth. The side portions were large so I recommend sharing with your partner. The price was right for the service and food that you get.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was 5 stars. I had the 2 1/2 inch steak, 4 people ate from it. The house dressing was wonderful. Our group really loved the cheese rolls, got some to go. Staff were very attentive, knowledgeable and near by. The restaurant was very quiet. I took my Mom for her 72nd birthday . She loved it.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to celebrate our aniversary last Saturday. Starting with the appetizer and finishing with the dessert. Everything was exquisite. The server was very knowledgeable about steaks. Our filet mignon was cook to perfection. We highly recommend it.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent. Our sever Glen was also very good. Took the time to get to know us and come to find out he and I come from the same area in NY. We had a wonderful dinner, and will be back.

A Real Treat
Charley's was a great dining expierence. The steaks don't get any better than at Charley's.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Charley's has always been great!
Great atmosphere, great service, and friendly and very helpful employees! Wine list is fantastic, and the menu has so many options that no one would ever be left out! This is a must anytime you visit Orlando.

Great food. Better prices than most restaurants this style. Best pork chop I've eve had and amazing bread
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first visit to
This was our first visit to this location of Charlies, as we have dined at the original location on OBT for over 20 years. This location did not disappoint, as the food and service were outstanding. They are certainly a top 10 steak house, and the only restaurant where we can enjoy the 20 oz.center cut filet.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
An excellent experience
Excellent food, cooked perfectly. Unique bread and salad which was very good. Huge portions of sides and the loaded mashed potatoes are to die for.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Steak Ever!
This is an amazing experience in the world of steak! Enjoy it, as I have.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Filet Mignon Ever!
Terrific food with the gator and the steak being outstanding!!!!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food and service!
I must say this is by far the best steak house I've ever had the privilege of eating at! The service was great and our waiter was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. As for the food, I would highly recommend Charley's to anyone! My kobe steak was BEST I've ever had and the crab legs were amazing. I'm looking forward to dinning at Charley's again in the future!!

Prime beef in a period decor
Thick cuts of prime steak cooked over a hardwood fire. What more do you want? Add in excellent seafood and side dishes. Serve in a wood paneled room with red leather appointments and chandeliers that look straight out of "Boardwalk Empire". Add soft music heavy on Sinatra and Dean Martin. The prices are decidedly modern, but the quality makes it worth your while.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful dining experience with excellent food and great service. Pricy but worth it.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
First Time @ Charley's
The atmosphere was as to be expected in a restaurant of this caliber. The Hostess and wait staff were professional and engaging and the service was excellent. The entire dining experience was enjoyable until two noisy eastern European couples came in and apparently claimed the table directly behind us. Overall, we had a good first time visit at Charley's.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first visit was 10 years
Our first visit was 10 years ago as we so not live in Orlando
This is a great steak house and we will always go back to dine every opportunity we can

Biggest Pork Chops in the Universe
Dined Saturday evening with 2 friends from Phoenix AZ.
Ushered to table for 6 (we were 4); not in best position, despite asking for nice table.
Service attentive but not overbearing.
Aligator starter was disappointment; could have been anything in bread-crumb batter.
Wife's Scallops starter huge and tender. Friend's fried Portobello segments big & meaty.
HUGE main courses. Men each ordered DOUBLE Pork Chops.
Each had one for doggy bag (box). Made for great Sunday lunch!
Ladies' Filet Mignon pleasant but maybe smaller than advertised weight; Salmon was solid but plain.
Sides of Asparagus, Broccoli, and 2 types of potatoes were large and excellent.
No room after for dessert or coffee.
Will try again.
We had no room for desserts nor coffee.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best steak houses ever. Steaks were seasoned and cooked to perfection! You wanted to lick the plate! Service (Don) was impeccable. The lobsters, perfecto! I've eaten at steak houses all across the U.S. and this is my favorite place. The entire experience was great.

Dinner After Shopping
We, my wife and I, went shopping at the Florida Mall and then went to Charley's Steakhouse for dinner. We ordered the Chef's Special Filet & Maine Lobster Tail. This dinner was reasonably priced and came with mashed potatoes and dessert (gelato). We ordered an extra side item (grilled vegetables) and each of us had a glass of wine (at a special price with the dinner). All the food was cooked as ordered and tasted very good, The side of grilled vegetables was delicious and "huge", we did not finish it. The dessert was 2-scoops of gelato, it was a great finish to the meal. Our server was very good, helpful in our ordering and attentive to our needs throughout the meal without being intrusive.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The two steak and Lobster entrees were fabulous. Served at just the right pace. Service was superior.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
the steaks man the steaks
I go to charley's for one thing steak. They have the best steak I have ever eaten.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed our experience immensly!
There were three adults in our party. Exceptional service, great food and drinks. Excellent fine dining experience. Highly, highly recommend!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service, great time!!
Started off with drinks at the bar. Brandon made us some Amazing martini's.
Moved to dinner in the dining room, our server Marlo suggested a surf & turf special that was out of this world! My filet was so flavorful and the lobster was the perfect companion. The manager Brian stopped by to check on our food and us, he was very nice. Had the huge chocolate cake for dessert and it was the perfect night!!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The meat was very bland (I had the .....). It tasted like they didn't use any seasoning.
I don't know how one can screw up broccoli, but they did. I am not sure was it was cooked in, but it tasted the way used fryer oil smells.
The cheese bread tasted like a cheap pizza crust.
I will say the spinach was very good. Tasted like the spinach and artichoke dips at chain restaurants.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would highly recommend Charley's. We go to Charley's every time we come to Orlando. Food is always excellent and service is normally impeccable.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I try to make it a part of every trip to the Orlando area. Eating at Charley's is always a good experience.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been here a couple of times before and as always it was excellent! Love love love their portabello fries and even better they make them with rice flour so I can have them! (gluten sensitive) Everything was delicious and you get a lot to eat so bring your appetite or prepare on taking home goodie boxes! :)
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a wonderful fine!
This was recommended as a place that "the locals go to" and I can certainly see why. You walk in to see a meat case on the right and their huge firewood grill in front of you. The server brings the steaks to the table for you to size up and choose from. Beautiful char and perfectly prepared. We had the roasted red mash potatoes and creamed spinach which were large enough for the 4 of us. The wine list runs the gamut from nice lower priced wines to some really rare fines. They offered a roasted Caesar salad as an upgrade; it was worth every penny! The flavor of this dish was extraordinary and almost alone worth the trip back. I have had the opportunity to eat at many fine steakhouses and Charley's is definitely in my top 10.
10/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
We were visiting from NYC. Every time we visit Orlando Charley's is a MUST GO!!! Great everything.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic place great steaks
Fantastic place great steaks and the service was the best.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always the Best
Still my favorite Steak House, when ever in Orlando we never miss dinning here. The service, the wine, the wood fired grilling of the steak. This time the bone in bison was incredible.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing like always
Had a great night at Charley's. Went to celebrate a special occasion with my wife.
Our favorite server Don was there and took great care of us! Steaks were cooked to perfection, and the special dessert and champagne toast that the manager Brian brought out at the end was a nice touch! They really know how to make a special night into an amazing experience!! Love everything about this place! See you guys again soon!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
First time back in 10 years and it was every bit as good as it was then. Service was superb and the rib eye I had was excellent as was the filet and lobster bits my wife had. I definitely recommend Charley's if you're looking for a special occasion meal - this was a combination wife's birthday, our anniversary event. The manager stopped by three times to make sure we were satisfied and we certainly were. We won't wait 10 years for the next meal.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just got married and wanted
Just got married and wanted a nice romantic dinner to relax after all the excitement. Charley's was the perfect place to do that. The food was amazing and the staff was great. From the valet to the wait staff everyone went above and beyond. Our food was outstanding, we both had the aged rib eyes, and we have never had a more delicious steak. We will undoubtedly be back, and soon!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Fantastic as always!
We alaways go to Charley's when ever possible. Fantastic steaks, excellent service.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved it all !
Arrived at our reservation time and with in minutes was escorted to our seat. The server was excellent, did well explaining the steaks and recommending the sides. Was also great with children and never let a glass run dry. Had the Filet of beef and all 4 steaks for all of us were cooked to perfection with a wonderful delightful taste. The décor was beautiful and one of my children commented on the noise level how quite it was and not like other places we go to often that are very loud. Great place, great service and great food. I would recommend this to all.

Old School Steakhouse
I have dined here several times with small and large groups. Food is on par with any high end chain but with some local flavor. You dont feel like your in the same restaurant no matter what city you are in. Wine list is extensive and reasonably priced for this type of restaurant. Unlike many of the big chains they do a much better job serving a large group.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
We avoid I-Drive, and from the outside, Charley's looks like another chain, tourist steakhouse - a small step up from Outback, perhaps. But it is a bit like walking through a magic door, from tourist-land to a nice restaurant. Great food, everything was delicious, very nice service. It is rather expensive, but consistent with the quality and service that we received.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love the food~
What can I say to the fact that we have dined at Charley's twice. The second time we brought other family members and made it a birthday dinner. We will return! The service was a little rough this last time.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Three times in one year
I was here once in 2013 for a meeting and every time I've been back to Orlando, I book a reservation. The steaks are literally one of a kind when grilled over the citrus oak wood. Really unique.
The shellfish options and also just terrific.
12/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
best steak I've ever had
I took my girlfriend and her family(party of 14) here to celebrate her 30th birthday. Our table was ready on time and we were seated quickly. They had a wonderful wine list and a small variety of craft beers that paired well with steak. I had the wagyu "kobe-style" ribeye, it was cooked perfectly and was the juiciest most flavorful steak I've ever eaten. There wasn't a single complaint amongst the party. Everyone loved the food and we would all go back. Our servers were great and very attentive and we never felt rushed. We spent about 3.5 hours there on a Thursday night.

Great Business Dinner
Was in Orlando for business meeting and wanted to take my office manager to a really nice place to eat. Had previously eaten at Charley's and very pleased. Had reservations for 6:45 pm but they actually were able to seat us about 30 minutes earlier than reservation. Our server was courteous, friendly, and described their menu and specials. My office manager had the small steak fillet and I had the bone-in NY Strip. Both were cooked medium as we requested. Fillet was very tender. My NY Strip was not as tender as I expected but had a very good flavor. Garlic smashed potatoes (one order can easily feed 2 people) were very good. My favorite was the fried green tomatoes. My office mgr highly impressed by Charley's. Will be back.
