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 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!

I've been a long time customer and fan, but the lack of consistency recently has put me in doubt. Not sure if there has been a recent change in management, staff, or suppliers, but something has been off over the last few months and it seems to be on a downward trend. I'm not totally done with Charley's yet, but they're running out of chances...

We literally did an extended layover In Tampa to eat here again. Food was great, as usual. Matt, our server, was an extra treat!! I hope he’s still there next time we’re in the area.

Wagyu filet was cooked to Medium-Medium Well rather than Medium Rare but it still tasted excellent.

Service was not good. We had to ask to order cocktails. Our waiter charged two couples $40 too much, and it took three trips back to the manager to get it right. Plates etc. were on table for 45 minutes. We had to ask for dessert menus. Our waiter and his assistant were never around. Ribeyes did not taste like $50 steaks. All six of us came away saying never again. It should not take 3 1/2 hours for dinner.

Oh, and one couple accidentally tipped the waiter $100 for this horrible service because they did not notice that gratuity was included.

We were so looking forward to that dinner.

Anniversary and Valentines dinner night. Food is always exceptional there. Dry aged steaks are the way to go there. The only thing different this time compared to others is that our waiter Eddie appeared angry and bothered all night. Our bread was undercooked and one of our steaks was undercooked as well. No apologies by him or anything. We finally had to mention something to the manger. Vanessa was very pleasant and helpful in resolving any issues we had.
This is still my favorite steakhouse and I will be back. Even
Michael Jordan missed a shot once in a while. Chalk it up to a rare mishap.

The steaks were amazing. My wife actually had the New York strip and I had the Tomahawk bison. Everything was amazing. We will definitely return.

Everything was great for our Anniversary dinner. Except for at one point our entree took extra long to be served. However, the manager personally followed up with us and all turned out fine.

It was a nice experience. The steak was really good, probably the best thing on the menu. Everything else was so so. Didn’t like that fact that the employees were having a conversation while we were eating. Felt like we were rushed to eat. Definitely would not come. Burns steak house is the better choice.

We had waiters Shelly and Fish. They’re an awesome duo. They were very attentive during a busy valentines night. The food never disappoints and the ambiance makes it’s quintessential.

The carpet smelled dirty, wet and musty. The service from Kasey was terrible. Her assistant was very nice and friendly. But Kasey was not helpful, didn’t explain the menu or the specials. The food was subpar, would expect more when you spend $60 on a steak. Would not recommend this place to family or friends

Staff at front desk seemed unorganized and we had to wait until they got organized before we were seated. Eat there frequently and this was a first. Normally the entire experience is 5 star but standing around and waiting takes the edge off.

As usual amazing service, food, and atmosphere. We were celebrating our Anniversary and it was perfect
See our photos and you can see how Romatic it was. Its worth every penny.
I've been to Ramsey"s in Vegas 2 times, Burns and Malio's and hands down Charlie's is your place.

Everyone from the moment we walked in the door were professional and friendly. Once seated our great service continued with Shelly our server! She first made us feel welcome and continued to throughout our visit. When you go to a restaurant your server is your connection to that restaurant and can make it a great or uncomfortable experience. In this case Shelly went that extra mile to make our visit exceptional. Actually when we return we will ask for her by name.
As usual food was exceptional ! Keep up the good work guys. We will be back!
