Charley's Steak House I-DRIVE Ratings and Reviews
One of the best, if not the best steak house I've been to so far. I had the Bison ribeye cooked medium and my taste buds were on cloud 9. Would highly recommend this place to anyone, seasoned or beginner steak eaters. Must warn that it may cost you a pretty penny but quality comes at a price and this was well worth it ! ! ! Even the sides and appetizers were off the charts! ! ! Cudos to the chefs......
I had a reservation for 5:00, showed up at 4:55 and didn't get seated till 5:15. The two women in the front did not do a good job. I wanted to be seated at 5, that is why I made the reservation. I would understand if they were busy but Thurs. at 5, we were the only ones standing there.
Also, the younger lady that was seating had a bad cold. I would rather not get sick when I go out to eat. She should have stayed home.
Unbelievable experience filled with amazing food and experienced and fun waitstaff! I consider myself a home steak conisour, who has dabbled quite a bit in steak aging and creating "my" perfect steak experience. Charley's took this to another level and pretty much ruined me and will make me work harder to reach my goal of aging and cooking the perfect steak at home. Flat out loved it!
I have made this trip to Charley's an annual event for several years now. It used to be fantastic and the past few years has steadily gone downhill. The service was spot on but the food, wasn't. The house salad was old and wilted. My lamb chops way undercooked. The porkchop was overcooked, dry and tough. Definitely not going back. There are plenty of places on International Drive to try instead.
We have been to Charley's before and every time we come to Orlando we go. The steaks are amazing, as is the service and the waiters knowledge and pride in the food is adds to the experience. The steaks are cooked without chemicals and are high quality meats. Couldn't have been better.
Server was late and did not seem up to snuff. We were early but watched others seated who came later with the same reservation time. We felt unwelcome or unappreciated.
I have eaten at Charley's several other times and it was one of my favorites. Next time I may hit Del Frisco's instead.
Four of us enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing meal at Charlie's in Orlando. The food was cooked perfectly and the presentation quite impressive. Our waiter was excellent and helpful in assisting us with menu and wine selections. This is a restaurant I hope to visit again.
An admittedly expensive place where you truly get what you pay for. Dinner starts with salad with an absolutely fabulous house dressing, and plenty of delicious home-baked garlic bread. Most of the steaks are simply huge; since this was the last night of a short getaway, we couldn't take anything home, so we each had the 8-ounce filet, which were cooked as ordered and melt-in-your-mouth tender. One side order of bacon/cheddar mashed potatoes (also terrific) was enough for the two of us.
This is a great upscale place for special occasions.
Charley's is always an exceptional experience. We live a couple hours away, but travel to Orlando 5 or 6 times a year and Charley's is always part of the plan. Great service, food, and atmosphere. Never disappointed. Highly recommend if you enjoy a superb steakhouse experience.
Superior steak house, definitely the best in Orlando and at or near the best our group had ever experienced. Our Pittsburgh style medium rare black angus rib eyes were cooked to perfection. We will definitely return to Charley's whenever in the Orlando area.
We started out with a Spiked Strawberry Lemonade for my wife; and, a Bourbon Flight for me. The lemonade was light and refreshing. The Bourbon flight was served with three excellent pairings of a blue cheese wedge along with orange blossom honey, steakhouse bacon and, the best of the lot, tuna sashimi which paired unbelievably well with the Woodford Reserve. My favorite, unbelievably for me, was the Jack Daniels... it was incredible. My wife had the bacon-wrapped scallops for her starter, which were out of this world!
For wine with dinner, we splurged on the Kestral Old Vines Merlot, from 2002. It was moderately priced; and, very unique; and, very very tasty!
My wife ordered the 8 ounce chef's feature, which was a Filet de Mignon, topped with Crab Meat and a foie gras beurre noir. She loved it! I had the 24 ounce Porterhouse, which is unusual for me, as I am more of a ribeye person... it was the BEST porterhouse I have ever had.
To go along with our steak, we chose the Creamed Kale, which was okay; but, had too much butter. Our plans included dessert, to finish our wine! We split the Chocolate Cake, which is covered in orange-infused dark chocolate icing; and, topped with chocolate bits... it paired very well with the wine.
Erleen was a terrific server; providing the best service; and, making meaningful suggestions. Nabil, was an exceptional bus person; and, he even helped deliver dessert menus and to-go boxes, while making sure our table was cleaned as we completed each course.
The only "hitch" in the whole evening was the change in the location of the valet stand, so we were facing the wrong way when we came in from Universal Blvd.
I truly believe that Charley's Steak House is the epitome of steak anywhere.
Had a 8:30 reservation, didn't get sat at a table until 9:40. Every time I went to ask how much longer they would tell me I was second in line and would be any minute but would continually sit other tables of same size party with no explanation. Clearly overwhelmed but they did not have the ability or wherewithal to set proper expectations for buyers so we could make a decision to stay or leave. Poor service, would not return or refer.
