This was the second time I’ve eaten there. Just as great both times. I ordered the catfish and it was cooked to perfection. My waitress was awesome...so nice and personable! I think her name was Leyla, I’m sure I spelled it wrong.

All entrees prepared well; we ordered the Trout special and an a chicken based entree from the standard menu. The menu continues to be diverse and has something for everyone. My only comment regards the special menu; it doesn’t seem to change. It would be nice to rotate the fish and beef specials.

My husband, myself and another couple went out for a date night. We wanted something a little more upscale, as we all have younger children. This was our opportunity to eat something beyond chicken nuggets and fries. :) Charleston's was wonderful. We had a 5:30 reservation. I would recommend a reservation beyond 5:30 because the restaurant began filling up fast. The inside is more on the masculine side. Dark finished wood, exposed brick and leather booths. It was very nice. The menu had a lot to offer. I enjoyed the sirloin steak with garlic mashed potatoes. The steak was cooked perfectly, medium. The potatoes were overly peppered...almost spicy. They were good but not what I expected. I had hoped for more garlic and not much pepper. My husband ate chicken fingers. They were hand battered and delicious. The other couple enjoyed bbq ribs and a chicken dish. All were outstanding. The cocktail menu is good, too. I don't recall our waiter's name but he was outstanding. All the servers were great. We will be back. Thanks!

My friend and I ate at Charleston's on a Saturday evening for his birthday. Our waiter was phenomenal. He was helpful, courteous and right on with his wine recommendation. My friend had ribs and I had a filet. Both were excellent! We will be back.

Great restaurant to meet with family and friends. Seating is reflect for conversations, without having to contend with music or even the conversations of other groups. Never have had a better experience with food and service. My favorite restaurant!

I normally visit the Carmel location because it's closer, but couldn't get a table for Father's Day there. The Castleton location had much more open availability for a reservation but the food and service was no different than what I am used to. I would highly recommend this location.

This is our go to place in Indianapolis. We’ve never had a bad meal there. We’ve had extended family dinners there and even our pickiest eaters were very happy. We especially like the ribs and chicken combo and the Walt’s Champagne Chicken salad is super tasty.

The server was very un-attentive. We got right in but sat for about 10 minutes before a trainee came and got our drink order. We waited another 30 minutes for our food to arrive. The food was perfect but when we were finished, we waited for the server to cash us out. Finally a manager apparently noticed that we were just setting and she came and cashed us out. I mentioned to her that our service was not what we were accustomed to. She said she would mention it to the server. We're going to give this restaurant a rest for a while because the last couple of visits, we've had complaints.

My wife's prime rib was very tough; not what we expected at a good restaurant. She ate about half of it and I gave the rest to our dog when we got home. I had asked not to have mushrooms on my filet tips and the waitress said ok - it was full of mushrooms which I picked off but disappointed it didn't come as requested. Will not return - 80 mile trip for a disappointing meal.

Everytime we dine at Charleston's, it is a treat. The wait staff is friendly and efficient and the food always is delicious and abundant. I do not hesitate to recommend Charleston's to friends and would definitely bring out-of-town guests here.

What a nice fine! Have driven past many time an hadn't noticed it! This is definitely a restaurant to which we'll return and also tell our friends about. Very nice, rustic (sort of) interior with real working gas lights. Service was outstanding/menu had a very diverse selection, even a bison burger. Will definitely dine there again! Glad I found it on Open Table!

Charleston’s always come through, the restaurant is busy, people everywhere, and the drinks stay full, and the server is always ready to fulfill a request. The food, regardless of item, is hot and tasty.

We really enjoyed out time at Charleston's. The restaurant was very clean and not too noisy. The food was very good. I had the catfish platter with two very large pieces of catfish. It came with cold slaw and fries but I exchanged the fries for fried okra. The okra was really good. My companion had the baked Tilapia which she enjoyed very much. Finished off with a slice of Key Lime Pie. Very good meal.

Server was extreamly poor. Messed up our order in 5 different ways even after discussion. She repeated her mistakes. Was very pointed when questioned.

Restaurant was excellent and would return.

We had reservations for 2:00 PM on Easter Sunday. The place was packed; however, when we arrived we were immediately seated. The service was great, the food was outstanding. The croissants - exceptional. The couple we went with had just moved to Indianapolis and were VERY IMPRESSED. Great Job!
