Wonderful experience!! Great food with professional service. Perfect atmosphere with piano playing. Highly recommend. We were celebrating a birthday and they had a birthday card at the table when we arrived and then they treated to dessert! Definitely a 5 star experience.

Charlie G’s never disappoints. The bar is great with the piano player and the action. All of the food was great, with the exception of the aged filet. It was very salty, however our server took it off the bill.

Food was ok. Could have been better for the money. Very displeased with the non cash charge on our bill. They charged us $14 for paying with a credit card. The crab cake was fried which was definitely not expected at a fine dining restaurant.

Charley G's Seafood Grill
Responded on August 20, 2021

Mr. de Blanc, We appreciate you taking the time to both email and review us regarding your visit. Due to rising costs and in order to not increase our prices, customers opting to pay with a credit card will see a small charge of 4% towards processing fees. This fee goes directly to your credit card company. Our crab cakes are pan seared. Pan searing uses high heat to seal in our creamy bechemal sauce by forming a delicious crust. On your next visit to Lafayette, we do hope you try us again.

We visited Lafayette as an anniversary getaway and chose Charley G's for our anniversary dinner. The service was A+ and we were overwhelmed by the extra attention to make our anniversary celebration special. We are keeping the card signed by the staff as a memento! We also appreciated the complementary dessert. Our meal was perfectly prepared and presented. Thanks for the warm reception. We plan to visit again.

Worst experience we have ever had at CharleyG’s! Arrived at 7:30; had champagne. Waitress asked if we’d like take our time enjoying our anniversary; we replied yes. She came back to pour about 10 minutes later. We then ordered Appetizer, Salad and Entree. We asked for bread, which she never brought, so I asked Shawn for some.He told me they don’t serve bread unless you ask for it. I replied that we had. We never had anything after that! At 8:45 I went to the bar to speak to Shawn ( Justin was there,too). I told them about our poor service and that I would like our food to go. I then made the mistake of telling them that I was not feeling well. We got our Entree only to go. Shawn told me he had taken the Escargot off the bill(he did).We left very unhappy at 9:00 pm!

Charley G's has always been my favorite stop for a meal in Lafayette. The Duck and boudin gumbo is superb, more than enough reason to go there. I think they have increased the sophistication of their offerings on the menu. Everything was well executed and the staff was very friendly. The only reservation I had was with the deserts. they were all rather heavy except for the sherbet, but that was very sugary.

We always come for the crab cake and the duck gumbo but are always surprised how good everything else is on menu tonight the steak and sea bass were exceptional and the duck risotto side quite tasty. Also to our surprise on early Thursday was 1/2 price wines. Our waitress Kresse was very helpful to complete a perfect evening.
