About Charley's Steak House I-DRIVE

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 1000 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 food, great service. I highly recommend the caramel cheesecake for dessert. I went there with my wife and daughter, we all enjoyed our steaks, wife and I split the special 20 ounce filet and daughter had the 8 ounce. We also really enjoyed the mushrooms.

We came to Charley's to celebrate a 50th birthday and it was fabulous. Met all our expectations and more. The food was fabulous, beautiful Chablis, gorgeous cocktails and wonderful service. This really was an all round first rate experience and everybody in the party agreed including my 9 year old who ate gator and porterhouse steak! Thank you particularly to Rachel for making it so special.

 (Norfolk)·Dined on August 14, 2017

very expensive for what was a very poor quality steak. I did complain to the waiter but he just laughed about it, at $60 it's not really laughable. So I told a 2nd waiter who also did nothing. This was something we had looked forward too but were very disappointed with the food quality and cost.

Dining at Charley's Steak House was just fantastico! The service, the food, the over the top ambiance was just a wonderful fun, mouth watering, beauitful evening.

I had the double fire grilled pork chops, that were so melt in your wonderful, with a-whole one to take home!Juicy,Fatty, Awesome. The largest pork chops u will ever experience.

My guest each had the 10 0z Filet, and the 12oz, both said they tasted perfect and cooked to perfection on the med rare side.

They both could not get over the fresh, and tasty Lobster Bisque that started off thier dinning adventure.

I am not a big fan of Kale, however this Chef designed a Kale side dish that, will knock your socks off.

Don't forget the well season crispy potato stack of huge fries, each one is the size of plank, delious.

Had no room for desert so we took home a piece of Key Lime pie that was soooo good, later that evening.....mmmmmm!

Its the place to be, the place to go for any occasion from impressing your family,friends, or business associates.

Bon Apeit!

 (San Francisco)·Dined on August 13, 2017

Ben coming to Charlies since the early 80's at the other location which I preferred. After trying this new one twice it is thumbs down on both visits one in may 2016 and again aug 2017. I won't go back there for dried out lobster tail and a steak that needs so much sales pitch. Its not that great and the flavor is of fuel and charcoal. They push their wine of the week which is weak and not great for $99. Is all over hyped and pushy service wise. Real pro's but necessary really if the food is good. They have lost me and there are better in the area for both steak and lobster. They only have tails there not even fresh whole lobsters. Palm is better than Charlies by far and there are many other ones we are enjoying.
Sorry Charlie. We are threw with you after 25+ years. Too commercial and boring all round.

Consistently great! This was our 4th visit to this location, 5th visit to a Charley's. All have been great. It is worth the trip- great food, great service - the best steaks you'll ever have. We've celebrated anniversaries and birthdays here. Ken is the waiter to request! We have been educated bout Colby steaks.

Charley's Steakhouse was a great "dining experience", I felt welcome from the front door greeting to the Server "Deric" and all of the other staff that assisted with our meal preparation, cooking and serving down to the staff that was cleaning the tables. It was wonderful steak, chicken and delicious desserts. The Price - fix Menu was great. The manager also visited our table to ensure that everything was alright.
Sincerely,

DJW

We took advantage of the three coarse meal for $30.00 special for the month of August. We selected the 8 oz. filet with potatoes and vegetable , all done just perfect. The filet was soooo tender, we really did not need a knife to cut it. The desserts were excellent as well. We are planning a return visit before the end of August. The servers were also very attentive but not overdone.

I heard that Charley's was the place to dine when in Orlando for Steak. Our waiter read off the information about the steaks and their offering like a robot. No emotion or feelings. My medium rare bone in steak was raw and I had a very difficult time even finding and portion of the steak that was chewable. The vegetables were cold and the specialty appetizer was over cooked. I am not sure there is anything redeeming about this visit.

 (Tallahassee)·Dined on July 27, 2017

Food and service was excellent. However the problems I had with the hostess regarding my reservation makes me seriously consider not returning. (There are many good steakhouses in Orlando) I originally made my reservation for eight people. I received a call from the hostess 2 hours and 45 minutes before the reservation time to reconfirm. (which is to be expected) Since I was in meetings at that time I called back at 6:15 to reconfirm. Thirty minutes later I found out three people would not be able to make dinner. I immediately called back at 6:45 and apologized that I would have to reduce the reservation to five people. The hostess was indignant that I changed the reservation and quite frankly copped an attitude. I apologized for "putting her out" and her response was "it was a big change but she would somehow make it happen. At that point I really did not even want to go to Charley's for dinner. We arrived a few minutes late 8 minutes to be exact and as we were walking in I received an email saying the table was ready and were we still going to keep our reservation.
