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!

  • Great steak...Bad smell
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 3/8/2013
    The bar was great with great drinks. The service was great too. I noticed the wood plank floor in the bar was buckled as if it had been wet. When we were seated in the diningroom area behind the bar area it had a strong musty smell. Sorry we didn't get up and leave then. We, 2 couples, had a good time talking and no one mentioned it until we were outside. I would go back but only if assured these issues had been resolved. Too bad...nice place.

    Dinner was very good. The steaks were excellent, though a bit pricy. We waited a very long time for our meal despite being the first diners in the restaurant. They did comp us dessert when I mentioned it, but not sure they would have offered if I hadn't said anything.

    Steaks were delicious! They are cooked over a wood bbq and have a very distinctive flavor that you just don't find at other steak houses. We had surf and turf. Lobster tail was OK, not great. I would highly recommend the steaks!

    I've seen Charlie's written up on the list of Top Steakhouses in airline magazines, so I was looking forward to trying it. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. The food was marginal at best and the service wasn't on par with the truly high end steakhouses. I honestly cannot rate Charlies any better than your local Outback or Lone Star steakhouse chain. And it goes to show that you cannot trust the listings of Top Steakhouses because they are clearly paid advertisements.

    Dined on 3/2/2013
    We went to Charley's having heard it was one of the better restaurants in the Orlando area. While the waitstaff was friendly, and could be seen bussling around, we couldn't quite figure out exactly what they were so busy doing. Drinks were only refilled upon request after we'd been sitting with empty glasses for 10+ minutes. Several of the meat entrees ordered for our party of six were not prepped as asked i.e. a pork supposed to be cooked medium had essentially no pink in the middle and a bison supposed to be cooked medium was medium-rare at best. Another issue was the staff couldn't quite figure out what they were & weren't out of i.e. when someone ordered salmon, we were told they were out & then found out otherwise - same w/ some others

    We drive over two and a half hours to eat at Charley's. Their lobster bisque, as well as their crab cakes are the best by far. We have eaten these same items at many other restaurants and they just can't compare...never tasted anything that good ever!! My sons favorite is the ribeye steak. Great oaky flavor. Wish we had one closer to home!

    I was disappointed in my filet mignon, it was not lean and I cut a portion off as it was all fat. AI am used to being able to consume the entire filet as it normally all meat and is tasty, for the price I paid I expected more in my steak.

    expensive for what one gets; two of the three meals were not cooked as ordered and when one was re cooked the sides were cold by the time the steak arrived and the other two guests had finished eating. In fairness ,however,we were not charged for one of the meals. Server did not seem to know what chives were although he was very pleasant and made every effort to be attentive. We have had better steaks elsewhere for significantly less.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Go hungry because the portions are quite large. You definitely get enough to eat. If you're planning on dessert, you better order that first because you just won't have room for it after your meal. I love the presentation of the various meat cuts available--you know ahead of time what your actually ordering. The filet mignon just melts in your mouth. I can't wait to go back!

    I went with my husband to celebrate our 6th Wedding Anniversary. The food was excellent, there's no doubt about it! But service was not good at all. From were I was sitting I had the chance to see and hear employees complaining about how horrible that night was and three of them cursed while in front of other customers (including us). Even when we had a reservation we had to wait about 35 minutes to be seated. Then almost another 25 minutes to be greeted by the server. I had to call another server a couple of times to get me some water. At one point I drank my husband's water, because I had none!!! Also, make sure that they don't seat you in front of the "Wine Wall", they will interrupt your meal to open the doors and get their wine!!!

    We enjoyed dining here and it was quite busy. I just didn't get why the pricing was so high. This restaurant is not in Celebration but in the plaza across from the entrance on 192. It seems like the place to dine on an expense account, but equally good dining is available at much more reasonable pricing.

    Great food, slow service,took forever to get food and my steak came out room temp. Asked waitress to reheat it and she tried to play it off as if it was due too the cold temp at which the steak was stored. Disappointing she didn't just accept the fact that the steak had been sitting amd apologize and move on. Also said they "needed to do something to make up for that" but seemed to forget that promise. Also had to ask to have our water refilled multiple times

Will tell everyone I know not to go to any Charley's Steak House or any restaurant owned by "Talk of the Town" restaurant group. Over priced, poor value. Don't go.

    1. We got there 1 hour early. They gave us a buzzer and said they would try to seat us earlier (Great). Then when our reservation time came up others that had arrived after us got seated before us. When we checked with the hostess she went to check us in as if we had just arrived, our original ticket was under a menu (LOST). 2. Charley's "STEAKHOUSE"....The best part of the meal was the salad and bread. The STEAKS were cooked fine, but had NO FLAVOR. So much for "STEAKHOUSE"! 3. The floor manager stopped by every table in our area except ours. 4. Our beverage glasses became empty on more than 1 occassion.

    While I prefer Mortons, Charley's was a nice surprise as I went based on the recommendations of friends and tourists to the local area. Shawn is an excellent server. He knew the options well and was able to guide and make recommendations like a pro. Be sure to ask for Shawn as your server and you won't be disappointed in his tact, knowledge, pairings of food and wine as well as which steaks and seafood are the best choices for the evening. If you can, save room for the dessert presentation - in fact, the entire evening is a presentation.
