An excellent fine dining choice in Lafayette ... perhaps the best, quite honestly. We had cut down our visits after an average Mother's Day brunch and birthday dinner for our daughter, given it's not 'inexpensive.' With that said, we returned last night and were blown away by the food, especially, and the service. Made us believers again. Would definitely recommend.

This was a birthday celebration for my wife. As usual, the entire staff made us feel very welcome. We totally loved everything we ordered, especially the pork belly lettuce wraps appetizer which we’ve never had before. After dinner, we spent a few minutes in the cozy piano bar and enjoyed some wonderful tunes. All in all a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion.

For the second time there was no Ketal One Vodka. Now the Monday night steak is only $10 off, not half price. We will frequent Mazen Grill instead.

Charley G's Seafood Grill
Responded on October 7, 2021

Currently our purveyor can't get Ketal One to us and it's illegal for us to buy it from a store. We apologize for the inconvenience.. For the deep discount on the ribeye, due to a significant increase in beef prices, we have adjusted the Monday special pricing to $10.00 off. We sincerely hope you understand the need for this change which is associated with the rising cost of many commodities, including beef. We enjoy Mazen's as well, we encourage our guests to eat locally!

The food and service were great! My only complaint is there is a 4% “noncash” fee charged. Do better Charley G’s!

Charley G's Seafood Grill
Responded on October 5, 2021

The cost of accepting electronic payments continue to rise. As a result, our cost of doing business continues to increase.Until now, we have absorbed all price increases internally. In an effort our keep our prices competitive & our business profitable, we have decided to price all of our goods with a cash discount. We value our customers & we understand some patrons may not agree with our position, but we take this position in order to provide better service as well as more value in the future.

Made a 9:00 reservation for a table in the bar as that is where the pianist plays. Had a business client from out of town who had requested this. Upon arrival was told the 6:00 reservation was still at the table 3 hours later. Was told it was not possible to ask them to possibly move to the bar area as they were finished eating and pd the check but still occupying the table. We offered to wait a bit to give them time. Now they have been there3.5 hrs and we have patiently waited 30 minutes past our reservation and it is getting late. Spoke to manager and was told we would have to sit at a table outside of the piano area if we wanted to eat. I’m not sure what the point of a reservation is at this point if it will not be honored. A simple request by the manager to the table explaining another reservation was coming in and would they mind simply vacating the table and moving about 4 ft over to the bar area so others could eat would have been better business.

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.

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.
