Nice dinner date with my wife. Charley G’s is always a nice, classic steakhouse atmosphere. The open kitchen allowing for a slightly smoky smell (to get your mouth watering for your incredible filet of either beef or fresh fish), the classically dressed waiters paying just the right amount of attention to your needs, the live piano and singing in the bar area, the manager stopping by every time I have eaten here to make sure everything is to your satisfaction: it all adds up to a place I frequent for table dining, with just the right mix of mood setting wood paneling and colorful accents and understated decoration.

Love this place.

The whole experience was very pleasing. Service was highly professional and knowledgable. When I queried the server about a suitable wine pairing for the Chef's special she was unsure but immediately consulted with chef. Food and presentation were both excellent.

Everything was wonderful. The piano playing was lovely just way too loud for normal conversation. We requested 3 times for it to be played more softly or at a lower volume. Finally the message was delivered.

I dined at Charley G's with my Louisiana family and with two visitors, one from Quebec City and one from Montreal. The visitors were very impressed with the cuisine and the service. They said that Quebec is known for its fine restaurants, but that Charley G's cuisine and service was the equal of the fine restaurants of Quebec.

As always the food and service was fantastic!! My horgeoys wife had the petite filet which was cooked to perfection on the wood fired grill and I chose the fish special that was sublime. The executive chef Holly and her team were on point with the special. Then came the dessert round and OMG the selections were mouth watering. Our server Cayleigh is such a delight to be around, she knows her dishes, checks in to make sure everything is perfect yet never intrudes in your date night. Finally the musician “Julie Williams” is spectacular.... think of a cross between Adele & Amy Winehouse with pure smoky blue jazz overtones. Under the leadership of Justin its fair to say Charley G’s maintains its reputation as being “Lafayette’s Top Restaurant”

Everything was amazing from start to finish. We don’t do a traditional Valentine’s celebration, so a week later we decided to go out for a nice dinner together. The pork belly lettuce wraps and filet Oscar keep me coming back to this place. The duck was good, but not spectacular. The winter house salad and turtle soup were also both delicious and hit the spot.

Charley G’s is always a great experience. They go out of their way to provide excellent dining. Ladies’ Lunch on some Fridays is a treat, despite the abnormally high noise level and extra stress on the kitchen and the wait staff.

CHARLEY G'S BISTRO

Although living elsewhere for decades, Charley G's has been our go-to eatery when in Lafayette.

This place is not exactly "Cajun", but offers excellent eclectic offerings, including first-rate steaks and great duck/andouille gumbo. There are a few fresh seafood dishes. Steaks are steakhouse quality.

Our favorites are the Thursday lunch meatloaf, CB's, and the oso bucco with squash & corn casserole. Pastas, especially shrimp scampi, are excellent.

If you want bread, just ask.

Menu changes seasonally, with frequent "specials". There is nothing bad under Charley's purview.

The piano bar is wonderfully relaxing and is usually open mid-afternoons while the kitchen is closed.

Plenty safe parking, a few shaded spots. Reservations recommended.

Charley's clientele is mostly long-term regulars from the city and adjacent parishes. Tourists are welcome.

One cannot go wrong at Charley G's !

After all the years, still serves superb food with excellent service and ambience. Had Baronda fish special which was terrific. Duck gumbo was not what it used to be since original gumbo chef has apparently passed on. Perfect drinks, very good wine list. A real standout in Lafayette.
