Been eating here since existence. Consistently good food. Love the tortilla soup. This is the best out of all the other tortilla soups offered at different restaurants. My prime rib was yummy.

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!

Server Jeremy was so attentive, polite, and responsive! I really don’t care for bread pudding, but theirs is out of this world. Had friends there to honor their son’s passing 18 years ago, and it couldn’t have been better. Thank you!

Tina was our server and she was fantastic! She was very accommodating and knowledgeable regarding the menu items. We were there to celebrate my mother's birthday and everything we ordered was delicious. My Dad loved the meatloaf! The general manager brought out a bread pudding dessert for my Mom's birthday and it was exceptional! I would highly recommend this place! The ambience is cozy and even if you sit at a table you don't feel like you're on display. We had a phenomenal experience and will go again!

My $30 new your strip was so flavorless I had to dip it in ketchup, and I never use steak sauce. Worst steak I’ve ever had. My wife enjoyed her meal.

A little pricey, but well worth it. The service was outstanding. Very attentive, but not obtrusive. Beautiful setting. Very busy place, but so well organized, it didn't feel crowded. With everything going on, it wasn't really noisy. My wife and I could easily maintain a conversation without having to strain to hear one another.

I’m a big fan of Charleston’s and the hubby decided he wanted to celebrate his 60th birthday dinner here. Octavia provided excellent service with panache. We all enjoyed the entire meal from the crab cake appetizer to our all-time favorite dessert-bread pudding! In the many, many times we’ve been here, the food and the staff have been excellent.

Hostess and other staff at the door were very nonchalant and not very welcoming. Didn’t feel like they cared we were there, which doesn’t seem right for a restaurant in this price range.

This was my first time eating at Charlestons and My boyfriend and I were disappointed. I made reservations and when we arrived, the hostesses seemed confused. There were no tables available and we were asked if we wanted to sit at the bar since it was open seating. We found a booth. Our server was less than enthusiastic to wait on us. She didn't have an attitude but she wasn't very friendly either. My boyfriend ordered the prime rib. I order the chicken finger platter. Our ordered came out in about 10 minutes which we thought was rather quick. Our reservation was at 4:30pm and we were done by 5pm. My boyfriend said that he could tell the prime rib wasn't made fresh because he said it got cold really fast. We only attended the restaurant based on a recommendation. We were sadly disappointed. Food was not the best and service wasn't all that great.

Charleston's is fun for a family meal! Great atmosphere and the food is good. We usually sit at the bar wherever we go, but we had kids with us so we sat in the restaurant. The booth was nice. It gets kind of packed in there, which leads to the elevated noise but that didnt bother me at all. My rare prime rib was really good as were the other meals we had. The salmon on my wife's salad didnt look very appetizing, but it tasted fine. My kid's burger was good too!

Food quality seems to have changed. I remember thick cut pork chops in the past. Today I received two “fatty” pork chops. It took forever to get our drinks and we even had to ask about the complimentary bread which was delivered after we asked. Rather than an excellent experience it just felt very average.

When we arrived we were told they did not have our reservations. They had openings so we were seated and waited on the couple we were meeting. After several minutes we received a text from the other couple. They had gotten there ahead of us and were seated in another part of the restaurant. Apparently when they arrived the hostess canceled out our reservation even though it was for 4 not 2.
We have eaten here several times but this was not the best of experiences.
