My husband and I went to Charley G's last night to celebrate our anniversary and we had such a great time. Their staff went above and beyond to make sure the evening was special for us and it was so appreciated. And of course, the food and drinks and dessert were all fabulous. We'll be back soon!

Disappointed with the steak flavor and they managed to make a tasty fish special heavy with sauce covering the taste of the fish. Also, a restaurant of this caliber and price shouldn’t charge 4% for use of credit card use. That’ll keep me from giving them a second chance.

the veal cheeks and duck were excellent!! Only complaint was when we made reservation we asked for a booth, not near a waiter's station or the music. First table we were shown was next to the hostess station and right next to the live music (frankly not a good table at all). But we were shown another much more acceptable location promptly so all was well.
(just don't know why restaurants always seem to dole out bad tables first!)

We sat at a booth in the bar area for our anniversary. Food was amazing!! We had the lettuce wraps to start followed by blueisiana salad and gumbo. Main star was the steak and cake. What a dinner!! Matched with a red wine. Great service by Riley ( not sure the spelling sorrry) in the bar. Very attentive but gave you your space and time, with great recommendations.

This may be a return to more normal business after covid but this is the first time since the late 1980's that I have experienced less than satisfactory food. Sea Bass was dry, the crispy duck was not crispy and some of the dessert changes were not my favorite. It was very noisy all in all not the most enjoyable experience for our guests and anniversary.

My husband and I dined at Charlie G’s for a much-needed date. Everything was excellent including the staff and food. Our cocktails were delicious as well. My husband had vieux carre and I had a Casablanca. We shared a bottle of Pinot noir which was also great. This may be our new special occasion date place.

Ribeye steak was undercooked and at least 40% was waste. My wife didn’t sleep hardly at all after having the special dinner.
Staff was most professional.
After meal server asked if we wanted coffee. At 7:30pm they didn’t have any decaf! I would have had my staff go to nearest grocery. Apologize that it wasn’t our usual quality and serve it complimentary.
Not a good value. Disappointed. Not like our previous meals several years ago.
Wish Charlie still owned.

I wanted it to be perfect. It had been years since the last time I was in Charley G's. I made the reservation with the intention of a perfect end to the perfect Day-Long Date with my Wife on her birthday. When we got there, we were seated promptly and there was birthday confetti spread out on the table which was awesome. Our server was knowledgeable and knew his craft. The appetizers were not exactly cold but they were not piping hot either, it wasn't worth the hassle of sending it back. The second course I had the turtle soup and when the waiter's assistant asked if I wanted sherry in the soup, I said "yes" at which time she splashed more onto my shirt than she got in my soup. Then the entrees My filet was cooked very well and tasted nice; my wife however got a rib-eye that she said tasted "off" so I took a bite. HOLY SMOKES it was putrid. The steak had obviously gone far beyond bad, how the kitchen did not notice when they put it on the grill I will never understand. I had to spit the bite out, it literally made me sick. Whe we talked to the floor manager, he said he would remove it from the bill and asked my wife if she wanted a replacement. She changed her order from a ribeye to a filet like mine and I asked them to re-fire mine so I could actually eat with her. They came back with a new steak for her and the same steak I had only kept warm and re-plated. Then the bill came, her steak was on the bill and when I brought it to the attention of our server he said that the manager had comped the $4 sauce and our a al cart order of brussels sprouts.
OK cool but he said he would remove her entree right? I don't want a handout, If I did, I would not have gone to a restaurant where the minimum entree is $45 but I do expect better treatment when you serve my wife rancid food for her birthday and then insult me by removing a $4 and $8 side from a $300 food and beverage bill. I was really disappointed with this place and it will be a good while longer before I go back.
