Food and service was great! People working at front could use some training on greeting guests. Especially since there were plenty standing around.

Made a last minute early reservation, we live about an hour away and made better time than expected but they went ahead and seated us. Our server was attentive and friendly, the food came out quickly and it was delicious.
It was our first time eating at Charleston's and we will be back!

Everything was good, with the exception of feeling a bit rushed out by the change to a 9:00 close. Our reservation was 8:00, and I don’t think I will take another 8:00 until the hours extend again.

We had a terrific experience. As far as noise level, our group of women was probably the loudest in the place. Sorry for that. Our server was fantastic. Lauren was energetic and positively contagious. She also gave super service and great suggestions. I will ask for her section next time we come in.

The food was excellent. Service was a bit chaotic although our server (Summer) did a wonderful job. Not overly fond of booth seating. All in all we had an enjoyable dinner.

The restaurant was very busy this evening so I’m glad we made the reservation in advance. Almost all tables were full. Our waiter was very kind and provided good service. There were a few hiccups - one person at the table asked for a cup of chili and never received it and two people asked if the chicken on the salad could be hot and the answer from the server was yes but it was received cold. Other than that, the food and ambiance was enjoyable.

The Roasted Chicken was dry and Charlestons replaced it w/another item of guests choice and offered a "free" des1sert to the guest ! Very prompt to fix the "issue".
Most appreciated by Host - me

It took us 1hr and 15 min to get our food. We ordered a Togo order 50 minutes after waiting. The Togo order came out in 5 minutes, it was salmon. Our main order was salmon and a burger.

Server kept lying about the wait time. She said our food was coming up in the window, and still look 30 minutes after that.

Our meals were not compensated.

Charleston's food is always good, never disappointed. Wait staff is courteous and attentive but not overly attentive. Hostess station always has someone available and ready to seat you when you enter, unless the place is packed, then it may take a few minutes. They are always cheerful.
Charleston's is our "go to" place, for inside eating and curb side pickup.
