Went there for anniversary dinner. It was a little louder than I expected due to the bar area and sports playing on the TVs. I didnt think they would even have TVs. We picked Charley G because we thought it would be a more quiet, romantic, setting, and we never get to go anywhere quiet with the kids in tow.
Overall it was nice and the food was A+. Only negative was the noise, but we had a wonderful time and I would definitely recommend Charley Gs for dinner.

Food, atmosphere outstanding. Service terrible. Had to ask for our waiter on three separate occasions. They bused the table and left. Our group wanted coffee and dessert and had to wait until we finally got someone to stop to get our waiter over to order. Then had to do the same to get the check. Maybe they were having a bad day. I would still recommend because the food is outstanding.

Took a client there this week and he was "wowed" by the food and the service. The staff is most attentive yet not obtrusive. They truly "get it". Charley G's is consistently great based on my more than 25 years of going there.

Nice place. Had our table ready. Had an anniversary card signed by staff on table with glitter hearts all over the table. That was unexpected and very much appreciated. Service was top notch. A bit loud for my old ears but we sat next to each other so we could hear each other well. Fun night. Glad we did it! Thanks for a great meal.

Very nice atmosphere, service was good but a little slow not sure if was server or kitchen. The appetizers were hot and tasty. The duck gumbo was like warm and very very thick almost paste like. The entree took almost an hour before it was brought out and the fish and potatoes were barely warm but the fried green tomato was hot. The desert was very good as well as the wine.

What a gem in LaFayette! We came in for a graduation, found this on OpenTable. Best meal of our trip. Love the atmosphere, and loved the live music during dinner. We don't ever desire to come back to LaFayette (no offense!)--if we HAD to, we'd definitely come back to this restaurant! Kayleigh was our server and was extremely patient with our lack of readiness. Part of our group was late, we talked too much and took forever to order.....she was awesome! Oh, and I almost forgot, they had "congrats grad" confetti on our table. Such a nice touch and very much appreciated.

Charley G’s was fabulous. The waiter went thru each item on the sampler that we had ordered. The salmon was cooked perfectly. The tower dessert was enjoyed by everyone in our group. It was a truly fabulous meal. We were there to celebrate our son starting a full time job after graduating from college. It was a night we will all remember for many years to come.
