Charley's Steak House I-DRIVE
Having been once before maybe 2 years ago, we decided to treat ourselves again to a meal in Charley’s whilst in Orlando
And again we were not disappointed
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by the hostess & seated promptly
Our waiter, Michael was exceptional in his delivery of the steaks on offer & I decided on the bone in aged ribeye & my lady had the Alaskan king crab
We treated ourselves to a bottle of bollinger champagne and all was going well , but on bringing the main course, Michael alerted Rita that there was a fly in her glass of champagne & immediately took it away informing us this was not acceptable in this restaurant & would inform the manager,
Who in turn duly arrived to offer her sincere apologies & offered us a replacement bottle of said champagne, even though only a half glass had been wasted. A grand gesture, as we were also informed that this would be after finishing the first bottle
We were most pleased to say the least, but this small incident took nothing away from a superb meal, finished by an excellent creme brûlée.
We would both whole heartedly recommend this restaurant should you come to Orlando & maybe Micheal will be your waiter for the evening
We really appreciate the helpfulness of all concerned in making our evening a fantastic experience ,
P.s. my only issue was you made me eat TOO much
One of the best visits here! My son and I got the 50 oz porterhouse and lobster tail. He seen the price of $140 and was like " dad that's a lot". I told him we were on vacation and not to worry. When we were stuffed to the gills, he said it was the best meal ever and it should be $175!! The wife got the crabcakes. Awesome is the only word to describe it. The plank cooked cauliflower is on time too!! When we are in orlando, this is our come to place!
AWESOME!!!! Had an incredible night!!! Diego was the best server ever!!!! Everything was beyond belief!!! Will return when back in Orlando!!! Food was excellent!!!
Keith our server very knowledgeable and attentive.
Managers very nice.
Fantastic service made a birthday dinner special
Quite possibly the best steak I’ve ever had...tops mastro’s - Morton’s - Delmanico ... I mean this place is the real deal!!! Everything was excellent!!! Highly recommend.
By far one of the best steak experiences in recent memory. The options were / combinations were many and enjoyed the ability to share. Perfect menu for little ones. The wine by glass selections were fine.
It had been a while since I’ve eaten at Charley’s and it was every bit as good as I remembered. Service is outstanding! Never felt rushed and steaks were perfect. In the past I’ve always gotten the Filet but went with the ribeye this time-loved it! Only small negative was the wait even with a reservation (almost 40 minutes after 8:45 reservation time so you wouldn’t think they’d be that far off). However enjoyed visiting with friends in the bar.
I have dined here each time I am town and it never disappoints. Staff is professional and food is excellent !!
Quite possibly one of the worst steaks I have ever eaten. You can get a better steak at Outback or Golden Corral for that matter. They should hang their heads in shame for charging those prices for low quality food. My wife’s filet was dry and terrible and my bone in filet was also good over cooked and terrible. Filet should be tender yet it had to be sawed through like beechwood. Will never go back. Additionally my daughter had the kids burger which was also awful. Abysmal excuse for fine dining or even mid level dining.
The food was great, however service was very slow and because the room was so crowded the waiters kept bumping me as they passed by. The waiters were having to yell to the large group behind us which was most annoying.
Not a good experience, won't return.
Poor service. Very loud servers. Too many ch time selling the steaks. They pack you in like sardines.
Excellent as always!
Visiting, one of my favorite restaurants in Orlando
FANTASTIC......best steak, best service. Also, salmon was killer. Puts Ruth C to shame... .wait staff went above and beyond .
It was my birthday and they put rose petals on the table and gave us champagne! The service was outstanding and the food was better than excellent. Although it is pricey, worth every penny!!! Great special occasion restaurant and we will return.
We were in Orlando with the kids and decided we wanted to go to a nice steakhouse. Using opentable, I researched the options and selected Charley’s based on the reviews and menu. We loved it. The bread was among the best I’ve ever had. Lobster bisque was great. The steaks are very high quality. All that we had was prime. The bbq flavor from the open fire grill may not be for everyone, but we loved it. Was not inexpensive, but seemed like a good value based on the quality of the food. We will definitely be back. The
Food was not what meand my party expected. The pork chops was overly done and the chicken was very dry. Also the lamb chops was so very small. This was very shocking because the food has always been very good.
The steaks were absolutely outstanding.
Our waiter Ivan was perfect.
Extremely pricey but we were not surprised. Worth it!
Best restaurant in central Florida! Our go to place every vacation to Orlando.
Great food, service, and experience. Eveeything was spot on. Old Fashioned's, Lobster Bisque, house salad, and them adding stuff to my filet. Great stuff. The guys in the bar area were great!
Took my Dad for his 77th. They were warm and inviting, Malik made a special stop to the table with a meatball taster (complimentary for my Dads Bday). Mike, waiter was attentive. We had three steaks, two identical strips and one 21 day aged strip (for me).
My Dad’s “strip” was odd and had a large gristle ribbon, he sent his back to be re-fired after commenting and showing the gristle; his steak returned a little over done (to be expected) but the gristle was not broken down as expected. The boys identical cut was much better (tender, no gristle) and was what my Dad should have been served also. My steak was really good.
It’s rare to go and order two identical cuts, the difference in the two (as first presented) was stark.
I was happy that they tried to fix the issue but was surprised that since he ordered it medium rare that their preferred option was a longer cook time (a re-fire).
An ok experience but saddened that his 77th bday was not exceptional.
Food was excellent. Thought service was under par considering the pricing! Expected service to be a little more Took forever to get drinks forgot our salad brought the wrong sides!
This is my favorite place to eat while visiting Orlando. The food is amazing. The staff go out of the way to make your experience perfect. The maitre de was truly a step above.
As Always, Excellent Service, Fantastic Food, Great Ambiance. Been here many times.
Our service was very very slow 2.5 hours for 3 of us for dinner.
Everything else was awesome.
Food was ok. Service wasn’t great - they undercooked fish, forgot to bring the salads and martini.
Our waiter Keith was excellent along with the food.
I had been to Orlando 6 years ago, and the most memorable experience was a steak at Charley's. I was looking forward to eating here again when we planned our trip back to Orlando, and the experience was just as memorable. This restaurant will be a must for me the next time I go as well. Please do not change a thing!
Great service by Nathan. Table ordered filet mignon, swordfish and tuna tartare. Every dish was excellent. First time at the Orlando location, but repeat Charley’s customer. Phenomenal meal!!
Took a couple of customers to Charley’s for dinner. Had a 6:30pm reservation. We arrived at 6:25pm, we’re greeted and seated right away. Service was excellent and food was very good. A variety of food options available and also a vast wine selection. I had the Angus Bone-In Ribeye, Bacon Cheddar Mashed Potatoes, Asparagus (sides are definitely shareable) and Crème brûlée and was not disappointed.
Food was absolutely delicious. Our server was very friendly and informative. Make sure to make reservations as this place is always busy. We waited at the bar since we reached before our reservation time had a glass of Preseco then a glass of Pinot noir that was recommended by our server which was delicious and smooth. Food was exquisite! Great quality meat, we went with the angus rib eye and the filet mignon, loaded potato and lobster Mac and cheese that’s a must have when you come here! Ended the night with mouth watering butter cake! 👌🏽
Charleys is a great place. Anytime we have the opportunity to go there we do. The best steakhouse ever! Thanks again Charleys!!!
I always enjoy dining at Charley's. They make the best steak in town. The wait time was longer than expecting, and the waiter wasn't outstanding at all. He just provided basic services.
Charlie's has always been one of our favorite restaurants and we often eat at both the Orlando and Tampa locations. Unfortunately, my husband's order was wrong and when they delivered the correct steak, it was over-cooked. In addition, my filet was ordered medium but was brought to the table extremely rare. Please note though that the male manager who came to our table was very professional and very accommodating. Lastly, what happened to your chocolate cake desert? It used to be huge with lots of chocolate chips but now it is completely different and not nearly as tasty. If it isn't broke, please don't change it. Thank you.

The food was incredible and the ambience was perfect. Rachel was our waitress and she was very informative with the steak, as well as with the wine selection. We will definitely go back when we are in the area again!
I have been coming to Charley's for many many years now and have always had great service and amazing food . The service on Saturday put all the other times to shame. Our waitress Dana was amazing, her knowledge of the menu , her personality, incredible service and the food was outstanding. That lady is a keeper. Charley's is my favorite steak restaurant and come there for my sons birthdays and my own every year .Thank You for the great meals.
