Everything was great except I did not think the hamburgers we ordered were of the high quality that we had had in the past. Didn’t seem to be as good as usual. Wondering what has changed them. Quality of the he meat didn’t seem as good.

Excellent service as usual, this location is the best of the two Charleston's available to us. This location honors the reservation time and gets us seated within a few minutes of arrival. The specials always include fresh fish, prepared several different ways. A good place to go with a group or just two.

We always enjoy our meals at Charleston's. Our server, Larry, was SUPER! Our reservation was for 5 people and it was a Friday evening. A very busy evening for your restaurant. I will note that it is not comfortable for 5 people in a booth, where we were seated. We usually get a table but none were available. We won't whine about...the food is excellent. Just want management to know that if complaints are made about 5 people in a booth it's because 3 people on one side is not a very comfortable situation while eating.

Maybe an off night. Normally a great place. They were out of Prime Rib on a Sat night. Server, nice kid, was new. Didn’t have it down yet. Overall not a good experience for a good Restauant.

We had such a nice waitress. I think her name was Kimberly. She was funny and made the dinner happy for us. The food was very good as always. I can count on that whenever i eat at The Charleston. I like to sit in the bar because there is no noise from children.

As usual the service and wait staff were outstanding. The food was delivered hot and there was not a delay. Manager stopped by table, always a pleasant touch. It was a quiet, cozy atmosphere to enjoy a meal for any occasion.

I made reservations and we were seated immediately. This is always a busy restaurant and recommend reservations. The drive off 82nd St was blocked because the adjoining bank was resurfacing parking area. Enter from Bash Rd. Food was awesome and served quickly considering how busy they were on a Friday evening. Don't forget the unforgettable Bread Pudding!

We used open table to secure a booth in the dining room. When we arrived there was some confusion and the manager took over and seated us in the bar in a booth. The noise level was what could be expected in a bar on Friday night. However we were meeting old friends for a nice evening of conversation, so this was not what we hoped for. The waiter was exceptional and so we stayed in the bar. In retrospect I wished we would have asked to be moved.

Second visit this week so you know I enjoyed the restaurant. My favorite things are the food and the ambiance. My friend ordered flowers for me when she made the reservations online with Open Table. One of the most beautiful arrangements I have ever received. Both visits were a 10!

Was visiting a friend in Indianapolis to celebrate another friends birthday. We went to Charleston's and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The service was great too! We reserved our spot using Open Table and there was ZERO wait time. Signature margarita was excellent and lemon martini was good too! Flatbread appetizer was excellent as was the bread pudding dessert. Only one person had an entree (a burger) and she said it was excellent! Would definitely go there again!

We were seated immediately and our server was ready with the menus. After giving us time to choice our entrée the server came back and took our orders. All three of us ordered different items and we all agreed that the food was excellent. As good as the food was the service was even better. The server was constantly coming by and refilling our iced tea glasses. This went on even after we had paid the bill and stayed a little later to keep talking with an old friend. Charleston's is a first class place to dine!

I took my husband out for Father's Day! We had 5:30 pm reservations. We were seated on time and the food was good! The only thing I was unhappy about was that they had run out of ALL desserts and we tried to order them at 6:30pm. One would think they would be prepared for Father's Day. Our server told us they ran out of the bread pudding in the morning. Was a big disappointment since we were planning on ordering that's as our dessert!
