Steakhouse
Charley's Steak House is owned by the Woodsby family and has operated in Florida since 1974. Charley’s serves only three-year-old USDA prime and choice Angus steers, aging them four to six weeks for tenderness & flavor and hand-cutting the steaks daily to ensure consistent quality. The steaks are then flame-broiled over Florida citrus and oak wood in a custom-built pit at 1200º searing in the tantalizing taste that has made Charley’s the #1 steakhouse in America every year since 2007! Charley’s philosophy of providing only the finest extends from the kitchen to the wine cellar. The wine list approaches 500 selections from scores of exceptional wineries around the globe. Charley’s has been recognized with numerous awards including “Best of Award of Excellence” from Wine Spectator magazine, DiRōNA and Orlando Magazine’s“ Best Steak House & Best Old Favorite”. Charley’s has been creating fans from around the world for nearly 40 years. We look forward to having you become a fan soon!

Great experience! Everything we had was amazing. Omg the fried portabellas are such a treat. Even if you don’t like mushrooms. We tried the lobster tail, filet mignon (with a lump crab topping) and the lamb chops. Yummy!! You won’t be disappointed. It’s pricey, yes, but sooo worth it.

Chad was fantastic! Thank you so so much! The food was amazing :) the restaurant can use some updating/fine tuning such as the lights over each table as they remind me of a Pizza Hut restaurant. Food and service was a great

Traveled from Jacksonville to celebrate my husband's birthday because he generally loves eating here. This wasn't our first time dining at Charley's but our first disappointment.

Our pork chops were ordered med well but were definitely well done. Our chicken breast were over cooked and dried out. I had to request some vinaigrette to moisten it up.

I'm always Leary about sending food back when it's not done well for fear that someone will mess with it. Besides if I'm coming out wanting to enjoy a good expensive meal, it should definitely be done perfectly the first time.

It was an okay experience. The server went above and beyond for sure and was amazing tonight to our party of 7. If you have been to capital grille before you know that this food wasn’t half as good and a filet mignon cooked medium or medium well at capital grille is just way juicer. The steak itself wasn’t very good and for their medium Wells they charcoal burn the outside versus other steak houses. I would highly suggest Capital Grille instead for food.

I have travelled extensively and always like to try new restaurants. Charley's was recommended by a concierge at a resort we were staying at a couple of years ago. We try to go here at least once every time we get to Orlando. Love the food, the service, and the ambience.

They first sat our group of four women in between two families with young kids who were running around bumping into our chairs - the restaurant was empty with plenty of other available tables. We requested to move and our waiter recommended two appetizers: jumbo shrimp cocktail and the portabello mushroom fondue. The mushrooms were cold and the fondue was not melted- we sent this app back, it was terrible. The shrimp app only included three shrimp and they were chewy. We split a large steak, cooked medium. Before showing us the steak our waiter proceeded to cut it into four pieces. The steak was still very rare so we had to send it back where they cooked the already cut pieces more. We also ordered lobster tails at $24/piece that were over-cooked, tough, and chewy. Once our waiter realized we were unhappy, he avoided us for the rest of our dinner. When he brought the bill, they hadn’t even taken off the mushroom appetizer we sent back. We spoke with a manager and they did adjust our bill fairly, but very disappointing for what was supposed to be our one nice dinner for my sister’s birthday. Bad food and subpar service- we had planned to go out afterwards, but all had terrible stomach aches. Save your money and stomach!

Everything we ordered tasted and was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was very friendly and insanely knowledgable with the menu she made choosing our dinner and wine selection very easy. I highly recomend the dry aged Rib Eye the taste of the dry age was amazing. Mouth is watering just writing this review. I will definitely be back to try the Bison!

Due to high ratings, we had always wanted to visit Charley's in past visits, but we never had time. This visit was a special celebration with family and it was well worth it. Our server was superb. He is the youngest captain on staff and his age has no connection to his professionalism nor knowledge. He and his staff were very attentive and even anticipated our needs. The menu items for gluten and dairy sensitivities can leave one with very limited options, so if that is a concern, be aware. Our server was very knowledgeable though and helped us manage our daughter's selections. The Wagyu beef, filet, and seafood choices were superb (tender, no gristle) and the cauliflower is a must!

Wir waren während unseres Familienurlaubs zum zweiten mal in Charley‘s Steak House und waren wieder begeistert. Das Filet Mignon war ein Traum, zart und auf den Punkt gegart. Das Dry Aged Porterhouse war eines der besten Steaks, dass ich je essen durfte. Werden das nächste mal wenn wir wieder in Orlando sind auf jeden Fall wieder dort essen gehen.

I had eaten at a charly's about 20 years ago, on a business trip to Orlando. I remembered it as a very good resaurant.. We were playing golf in the area, and saw the restaurant. we made reservations for that night, and were extremely happy with the whole experience. Our server, Jay, was outstanding and on the spot all evening. Although this is a moderately pricy restaurant, it is worth every penny. It will not be long before we return...

We had our 1 year Anniversary dinner at Charley’s and it was absolutely fantastic. I called the week before and was planning to propose. They made me feel relaxed in what could have been a stressful moment. From the front to our waiter, Miguel, the service was top notch. The food was amazing! I had the 16 oz bone in Filet and she has the seafood plate with Salmon, Grouper, Scallops and Shrimp. We split the roasted cauliflower, which was the most amazing side I have ever had! Miguel was in on the proposal from the start and assisted me in making the most amazing night of our lives. If you haven’t been to Charley’s, please do not wait! Try the smoked bourbon old fashioned and you will not be sorry! Thank you Miguel for the amazing service! We both hugged him before we left. We were both moved by this experience!

Suggest for a steakhouse that having steak of some sort on the kids menu would make sense. Price for a family of 5 means while excellent food I will never return as a family, at least not untill my kids can treat me 😁

Honestly we was pretty disappointed by the food, service was great but steak was like lump of charcoal on out side. I had to cut outside layer off. My sons swordfish was dry and had no real flavor and had to ask for a sauce which we tried 2 different ones and neither was good. My wife and twins spent 300 bucks and that is one of my sons sharing other 3 food. So 100 bucks a plate for frankly less then Outback quality food. If this is the best FL has to offer for a steak house then I am glad I do not live here but would have a hard time believing this is the best they have to offer.
