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!

    Found this restaurant online while staying at a Disney resort and it was awesome! The steak has tremendous flavoring, side dishes of sea salt potato and mashed potatoes were delightful. If ever in the area, we would definitely go back again!

    We were visiting from out of town and wanted a quality dinner. We found Charley's on line and the experience from start to finish was outstanding. Great service, kids well treated, great food, nice people that really cared about our dining experience. Our waitress, Marji, was amazing - we had limited time as we were going to a show and she made sure the food was out a bit faster. The manager visited us a few times to make sure everything was good and he knew all about us which shows that they communicated all of our needs, culinary desires, etc. Just an amazing experience. The food was delicious and we actually thought there was a mistake on the bill because it was not that expensive for a top tier steakhouse.

    Service was first class! We had the surf and turf for 2 and the lobster was overcooked and the steak was not very tender. Prices are similar to Morton's or Ruth's Chris but food quality wasn't close to either. My daughter ordered fish which was dry.

  • A Tad Overpriced but Good
    TheDude
    Dined on 3/26/2014
    Decent steakhouse, all the standard options. The crab cakes were nicely seasoned (and cedar planked), steak was fairly tender (although we didn't have their premium cut, we had the Angus cut) seasoned nicely and accurately cooked, followed with a decent lava cake (just a bit too solid, but tasty). As locals in the area (accustomed to but not happy with resort pricing) our dinner was good but nothing was amazing. At these prices I was hoping for more of a wow factor - it was just above average. Prices are a bit high (maybe $10 too much for the steak) but the food was good and service was great. Ambience is a bit dated and cliche - like a medieval dining hall with a drop ceiling. Don't mind resort pricing? Charley's is a good choice.

    The steaks absolutely melt in your mouth. I had the filet and my husband had a porter house with lobster. The steaks come with a salad and bread and everything else is a la carte. Our service was good at the beginning but waned as larger parties arrived and the restaurant became busier. Overall, it was a great spot for a quality meal during our Orlando trip.

    We were very excited to visit and were pleased when we left. We arrived early for our reservation so we went to the bar for a drink, I had a glass of wine and my wife a sparkling sangria that she raved about. They were attentive to our needs. When we checked in at our reservation time we were seating almost immediately. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu and wine menu, offering out suggestions even. Our food was great. We had to take most of it home with us because we were full from our appetizer and salad. Lol. Over all great! We will return when we are in the area again.

    The steaks were a little two smokey for our taste. There weren't many healthy options for sides for kids. I give the server credit for coming up with a nice fruit bowl for my child, but it is a shame the restaurant doesn't normally offer this option. Also, the menu offered mushrooms for on the steak, charging an additional $3.50. It came out mixed with onions, which I despise. A special order had to be placed. I was full by the time it arrived. The menu should state onions if it contains onions. The server was very kind and helpful.

    This was a pretty solid restaurant. Great bread and salads for appetizers. The three of us had grouper (great), tuna (also great) and Kansas City strip loin (hugely disappointing). They've fallen into the same trap as Ruth's Chris - steaks so ridiculously thick you can't cook them properly or uniformly. My medium rare steak came singed on the outside, pretty much raw in the middle. It was awful. The steak options are so unbelievably extreme, it's almost a caricature. Sure, have an inappropriately thick steak or two as a novelty, but don't force your customers to select from nothing but. It was just stupid. I recommend the restaurant but again, ironically, go for the seafood, not the steak.

    If you love beef/meat, make sure to come to Charleys Steak House for a special treat. Once you walk in, you see the signature fire pit where your meat will be flame-broiled over the oak and orange woods. This custom built pit is what sets Charleys apart from your typical steak joint. Not only are the meats delicious and cooked to perfection, everything from the appetizers to the servers are top-notch! Service was outstanding! I especially liked how the servers give you a demonstration of the different types of meats and cuts that are available (they also do this with the desserts). I could only make 1 dinner reservation for my short stay in Orlando and I chose Charley's and I wasn't dissappointed!

    Our waiter Dominic was AMAZING. We order 2 appetizer, Escargot Bourginese (my dad LOL) and crab cake. The crab cake were FANTASTIC (I wanted more), please try them when you go!!! Me and mom ordered the Ultimate Surf & Turf for twoIt came with a steak cut in half and 2 lobster tails. We had our meat cooked medium well... and it was so moist... melt in our mouth moist and flavorful... we did not need any steak sauce. And the lobster tail was sweet and tasty and it comes with melted butter. For the price and portion size you definitely get your monies worth and most likely you will have leftovers unless you share. I know me and my family will be coming back to Charley's again!

    Charley's does it right. Because of my medically directed diet, I'm not allowed to eat red meat. But I had one of the best pork chops I've ever had. Note the last time we were at Charley's in Tampa, we had the Surf & Turf (22 ounce filet and lobster tails). The wine list is extensive, and the service is impeccable. If anywhere in the Orlando area, I would recommend Charley's for a great meal.

    Had a wonderful time at Charley's. Service was good, but had to ask for extra place settings to be removed. The steak presentation was great, and there were so many options! Lobster was a bit over done and on the dry side. I know this is not the norm, or at least it hasn't been in my experience. Dessert options were stellar and the molten cake was wonderful.

    if all you want is a plate full of steak this is for you. if you want a server who forgets half your meal and a meal with zero presentation and no vegetables this is what we had. I’ve gone to many fine dining, high priced restaurants and this falls into the regular bar and grill category.

    We always make sure to visit Charley's when in Orlando - the steaks and food are the best. This time got off to a rough start when the Host sat us at a terrible table just outside the kitchen - all of the wait staff came through this one spot. After having the back of my chair kicked a few times we had to move. We were moved to an excellent spot and the staff, including the manager went to all extremes to make sure we were satisfied. Turned out to be a great night - will be back next time.

    We were there years ago and were excited to come back but came out disappointed. We were crammed into a very small booth with menus to big to handle in such a small booth. Made it hard to try and look at the menu without hitting everything and the four of us are not big people. Although the steaks are good, it is getting to be a little pricey when it doesn't even include a potato, just a salad. There are way too many other places to eat in that area to spend that much for just a piece of meat, lettuce salad and bread. We had a steak at another restaurant that was just as good and 1/4 the price. Guess we won't hurry back.

    Firstly I must own up...I live in England and love steaks, but UK restaurants do not seem to be able to produce a good steak. As a result, whenever my wife and I are in the KIssimmee area, which is usually two to three times per year, we make a bee line for Charley's and indulge ourselves. We have never been let down yet. The quality of the food, service ambience etc etc is second to none. On our most recent visit, in Feb of this year, we were served by Chad who enhanced our meal by his knowledgeability and friendly charm...in fact he is a credit to his employers. I have no hesitation in giving this restaurant my highest recommendation.

    the quality of Charley's food seems to steadily decline as the years move on. 10 years ago, I wouldn't have considered eating anywhere else. this past weekend was bad. the steaks were salty. they ran out of my favorite appetizer and lobster mac and cheese, and it was only 7:pm. this isn't even the Charley's I normally frequented. that location closed down. it's a shame. though the food has gone down, the service remained superb.
