We made a reservation well is advance for 6 at 7pm, We were seated at 7:30pm at the back by the service area, looked like it was reassigned since they needed time to setup, wonder why?
The Grouper was over done and dry, 20oz Fillet was more than the requested medium, but not bad. Bone in fillet was ok, have had better. The shrimp was very good, as were the vegetables. Our server was very pleasant and provided good service.
The floor managers visited several tables in our seating area, except ours!
Charley's is an annual experience and has been for over a decade. Absolutely fantastic!
Certainly not inexpensive but you just have to try it.
Moving to Orlando from Atlanta, I have experienced nothing but disappointment in restaurants around here. We decided to try Charley's and I was impressed. As all other reviews mention, the service was top notch. Nikko, the manager came around often and Pablo made sure we were well taken care of. We were a party of 2. The steaks were thick, cooked to perfection. We had a Strip and bone in rib eye, we did not have the dry aged steaks (next time).
We did not have an appetizer, dinner is served with a salad and garlic cheese rolls. The rolls were the biggest disappointment. They had an odd consistency, and very little cheese, but we ate them nonetheless.
We split a baked potato and the server had to go to the kitchen to get the "chives" (which were really green onions, but tasty) and bacon. This step seemed odd but the potato was still hot when it was served. Easy to take home leftovers. We had the key lime pie for dessert and was good. They encouraged us to have to Butter Cake, and were given samples to take home. It is a very sweet dessert.
We had a signature smoked Manhattan, dine at the table, served in a brandy snifter with no ice. Part cocktail part martini. It was interesting. We wanted a glass of wine, but no wine menu was offered, neither when we were seated nor when we asked what wines were offered by the glass. We had to randomly tell Pablo what type of wine we wanted.
Atmosphere: it has a very 80's feel. Kinda kitschy, but that was ok, actually a bit entertaining and nostalgic! This was about the quality of food. The place is huge and easily serves lots of large parties.
We had a reservation and were seated promptly. I am looking forward to going back.
Five stars as our waiter Christian was fabulous!
As a group of 5 highly opinionated people, we all agreed that this was the worst meal of our lives. Reservations were running 30 minutes behind. We decided to sit outside in the chilly weather, even though it wasn’t offered as a solution. After waiting 40 minutes for our drinks, We sent back two of the appetizers because they were inedible. The entrees came almost 2 hours after we sat down and they were all inedible too. I don’t know how this place stays in business unless standards for eating out are far lower in Orlando.
The appointment was for 8pm. We arrived 7:45 and have to wait till 8:45 to be seated. And the. Waited for another hour for the food.
The worst experience ever!
Will never go again
We visit from being out of town, we got the filet tenderloin with bone in the , taste was phenomenons. The Smokey flavor that came from the streak we so good! Will visit again when we are in town.
A fantastic experience, our waiter Bob was exceptional.
Excellent service and ambiance. Would have been fives all round if the 'lower in fat' bison steak had indeed been lower in fat.
Everything else was just about perfect.
Orlando is a terrific server. Great guy and friendly as hell. Didn’t up sell a bit. Coming back soon due to him. Oh yeah, food was top shelf. Even though the cook forgot to blacken my steak it was fabulous
Great food great service.
We make sure and visit Chaley's Steak House and Seafood Grille when we are in town. The food is always outstanding along with the service. It is some of the best food I have anywhere that I have traveled. They should be very proud of the product they present to the customers.
I love Charley’s food and service. I just feel it needs a new over haul with furniture, paint, carpet, etc.
This is without a doubt the best steakhouse in the entire country. The word that they use makes the flavor so unique!
Amazing service! Amazing food! They decorated our anniversary table with a sprinkle of tropical flowers and candlelight. Nice touch. We ordered the surf and turf. The smells of the wood grilled steak were incredible and then each bite was savored as I have never eaten a steak before in all my life. The waiter paired my meal with just the right Pinot and my meal became a whole experience to be remembered. Our meal was topped off with an incredible butter crunch cake topped with caramel and ice cream and my hubby had the creme brûlées and coffee. I highly recommend this experience for all senses, for that is what eating at Charley's Steak House and Seafood Grille offers through their food and service.

What a experience we enjoyed. Everything was phenomenal.
Can't wait to go back next time we're in town.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere! Seated promptly! Would definitely go back for another wonderful experience!!
One of the best steaks (8oz Filet) that I've had in a long time. Nvdia was an excellent waitress and would recommending requesting her if possible when there. The selection of various steaks and other meals are outstanding. The Cauliflower side dish is to die for and I'd highly recommend that as well as a very pleasant shrimp cocktail to get started properly. We were traveling, but I will definitely keep Charley's on my short list for any chance I might get to go again.
Superb meat selection and service.
Upon arrival, staff seemed frazzled. Not the warm welcoming we hoped for for our first time. Table was fine server was excellent. For a top notch steak restaurant, we were disappointed. My 42 ye old son ordered his steak medium rare. It came out med well. My bone in filet was was over done to the point of being like a weird powder texture in the middle and barely warm. Sides dishes were very good, cauliflower and fried green tomatoes. Salads were ok also but huge., we ordered grilled Caesar salad that was not grilled at all! They should tell you that salads are to share like the sides.
Just so so unfortunately.
Christian, our waiter was awesome.
Everything was great!!! The Wagyu Ribeye is excellent!!
Fantastic food and service as usually. Damon was a fantastic server and very attentive. He made the night extra special
It was our first time at a Charley's Steak House and we picked our anniversary to give it a try. The staff were on point but I was disappointed with the food. My steak was overdone although the server offered to refire; I didn't want to wait again so took it home for my husband who likes his steak well done. At the meals end we were given a gift card for the cost of the steak that we were told we could use at our next visit. We will give the Charley's Orlando location a try but will not be back to the one in Kissimmee.
This is one of my favorite steak house in US, our first dinner destination in town always. Both locations are great, I prefer the one in 192.
Service is great and the meats are superb, a great side dish is the cauliflower ( enough for 3 or 4 persons )
Best steakhouse in America. I have lived from sea to shining sea and this is the best tasting steak in America.
Its very good, your drinks won't go empty, but expect the full dinner experience. Don't be in a rush and it will be great.
Absolute top quality food yet again with great , friendly service as well. We will be back in our next visit to Orlando that’s for sure!
Amazing experience - delicious food, great service, relaxed dining - we loved it!
Our waiter, Orlando, was excellent and food was exceptional.
No valet parking, and there is no good parking around. Overbooked so we eat at the bar, which was great as Marge the bartender treat us very well. Drinks are incredible so.
Bone in filet, cauliflower, and veggies were great. Bread is amazing.
To be fair, we were there on NYE. First, they did not honor the reservation made through Open Table and were allowing call ahead and walk-in customers to bump in line. The hostest was very rude and there was no one to greet incoming customers. Bad move on management. We were seated 75 minutes past our reservation time. The waitress, while very nice, not trained very well, not familiar enough with what she was selling. After taking our order she came to tell me that they no longer had what I ordered. Them the next three things that I wanted to order were no longer available. The steaks were not of really good quality, nor were they cooked to perfection. It was as if they had been sitting for a while. For the money, this was a huge disappointment and I would not return ever again. I am not the only person grumbling that evening, in fact the entire lobby felt the same I am sure that the owner would be really upset to learn how his business was being represented.
Service was horrible. Waiter was in the weeds bad. Forgot drink order and it took over 30 minutes to get our bill.
A must while in Kissimmee, Orlando area. Historic steak house with prime aged steaks. The wine selection and perfect paring, very impressive. Our server, Christina, very professional and charming. The entire staff were fantastic. Last of all, every aspect of dinner always meets and beats our expectations. Our 20th wedding anniversary dinner and debating on dessert, while most high end establishments present a signature dessert as a small intimate gesture...we did have leftover asparagus and mushrooms at our condo later in the evening. A tradition while in town, highly recommend!!!!
Outstanding as always!
NYE dinner was fabulous!
Service was wonderful. Orlando is the best waiter. He accommodated everything for my son so he could also eat while we had appetizers. Always a wonderful experience. 🥰
