As always, excellent food and service. From the pepper and shrimp special appetizer to the seafood entrees, all a treat to the senses. Capped off the night at the piano bar for an after dinner drink and live music.
Perfect night out with my wife!

Took my wife, mother, sister and the kids for Mother’s Day. We enjoyed our time there very much. Our waiter was attentive, but not intrusive. The wine was superb. The food was delicious. I highly recommend this place.

Always a great meal. Had a business meeting over dinner and the staff was attentive without being overbearing and the cadence of the interaction allowed for a great conversation. Food was outstanding and the wine list on an iPad was clever and east to navigate. Charley G's is always classy and always delivers.

Monday rib eye special was a great price but steak was over cooked and tough. Definitely not prime, surprised if choice. MR order came out MW to Well. No red, no pink. It was half priced so I did not send back, at full price would have definitely sent back. Should have tried the seafood I guess. Ordered a side order of garlic spinach and they just put a few leaves under the steak.

It was an extremely good value. We were a later table, probably the last of the night. I'm sure that at first sight, we looked like one of those pain in the button tables: Late, 3 kids, I was in shorts and an AC/DC t-shirt with purple Willie Nelson braids, however we were welcomed warmly. I had the Ribeye with Foie Gras, Smashed Potatoes, Asparagus, and Maque Choux. Everything was tasty, however, the texture on the Maque Choux was that of Frozen Corn. The fish of the day was Barramundi which was odd to me to feature an Australian Fish so close to the Gulf. The gumbo was extremely disappointing- overly thickened and lacking in flavor. For the color of the gumbo, I would have expected that rich flavor that dark roux gives. Instead, it almost seemed like caramel color or kitchen bouquet was used. I would not recommend. The pork cheeks were delicious and made my wife extremely happy. The Appetizer sampler was good, but the eggrolls were dried out on the inside. I would definitely go back

The food and service are one of the best in Lafayette if not the best. Everything we had was absolutely great and the dishes offer a combination of flavors and textures that you wouldn't think would be great together but really are wonderful. If you're looking for superior food and service and don't mind paying a fair market price for it then Charlie G's is the place.

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.

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.
