Charley's Steak House - Tampa
As always it was an awesome experience
We went to Charley's Steak House to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. Reservations were a snap on Open Table as always.
Everything was OUTSTANDING and PERFECT. From the atmosphere to the service to the incredible food this was truly a great dining experience.
Can't wait to go back. Kudos to everyone at Charley's for helping to make this celebration a very memorable one!
The ambiance was great - the service and servers were all fantastic- and the food was PHENOMENAL!!!
1st visit, food was very good, waitress was excellent. Has an old Steakhouse feel. Kind of a throwback. If you were looking for a quite private dinner, this isnt it. High energy everywhere.
Menu is right up there with all the other upscale fine dining opportunities in Tampa.
Wonderful meal and great service, we love Charlie’s.
Birthday Buttercake was delicious after a very full meal of incredible steaks and sides. One side was timed off of the meal and they brought it to us on the house. The right simple thing to do.
We did get seated in the bar thinking it would be fun but to talk it was a bit loud but great people watching.
Thank you for a beautiful evening staff of Charlie’s!
The food was amazing, as always. The service was very disappointing and far from the standard that we have previously experienced at Charley’s. At several points through the night we were out of water and we couldn’t even see the waiter to flag him down to ask for any. The process of getting boxes for our food took a while and we had to ask for the check multiple times. This was not a good representation of how Charley’s service is and we will still be back.
What’s with the bed frame as a booth divider? Tacky!!!!!
Salad average , potatoes not hot , steak under cooked , service slow steak fries great , desert good , disappointed
Our waitress Aisha was spectacular!
Amazing food and drinks.
Just ok steak was not as juicy as I hoped for. Had to wait for refill on coffee and dessert took a long time.
The atmosphere was great. Very pretty restaurant and a lot of big parties. Service was excellent!. I was a bit disappointed in the mixed grill as the fish was overcooked and the shrimp scampi did not really have much taste. The bread and cauliflower dishes were awesome. The best part of the meal were the drinks and the butter cake with salted caramel ice cream - to die for!
Always have a pleasurable experience here. Food and service were excellent.
Overall, we enjoyed it. A bit on the noisy side, but we adjusted to it. The steaks we both received were excellent cuts of meat and cooked as ordered, which is always a good starting point for a steakhouse. In general, however, we thought the steaks were over-seasoned. Way, way too much seasoning for our taste. I prefer to add my own salt or whatever, so I was not happy they chose to do it to that extent, as I was not able to eat most of the steak at the restaurant. I took home about 2/3 of it, scraped off the seasoning, and ate the leftover steak for breakfast. My wife did the same. If we ever go back, we would probably opt for the seafood.
Celebrating Christmas late with family
The food was excellent and the service was superb. All in our party were extremely pleased. We had one table behind us who were rather loud, but that is something you cannot fault the restaurant for. Overall, wonderful experience
I’ve tried them all, Bern’s, Shula’s, Roccoco. I always go back to Charley’s. I recommend the Waygu ribeye.
A very noisy, overcrowded, overpriced restaurant.
Would not return ~ there are too many classy, gourmet restaurants to patronize these overpriced, ridiculously large meal restaurants.
Our sever Georgi was excellent.
Great food and service
Matt was an amazing waiter. We felt like we were the only ones he was taking care of. We are scoping out all high end steak houses in Tampa area. Charley’s hands down is far superior to Bern’s. Keep up the great work and let Matt know he is passionate about his job and it shows.
We always have an outstanding dining experience at Charley's. This visit was a celebration of birthday's and an anniversary. As usual our meal presentation was flawless and our waiter, Melissa, was welcoming and helpful with suggestions and tips. We would not hesitate to recommend Charley's (and Melissa). From appetizer to dessert a top notch meal.
Stopped in for meal at the bar early before 7PM NHL GAME. Service, food and steaks excellent. Only problem was room temperature at the bar was about 60F as they had not started the wood grill in the open kitchen area. Fortunately after a cocktail and a few started steak orders that problem resolved itself
Dodd is always amazing and the service was great
Daryl was outstanding and the food was exceptional. With higher end restaurants, you expect a great experience and often are disappointed. The Charley’s experience was awesome. The pace of the meal and the attentiveness of the staff was perfect. Add great food to the mix and you have a great dinner experience. When in Tampa, highly recommended.
Very good food, service was fine but the prices were a bit high for Florida.
Great Steaks. Excellent Service. Once of the best steakhouses in FL
My lobster was horrible. My only complaint.
Your Steakhouse is our favorite. Brought my sister and her husband. They were Ruth Chris fans.
They both said Chrarley's is head and shoulders above.
You are the only steakhouse that can beat my own.
Can't wait to go again.
We did have an issue with the service.
My sister asked for butter for her bread.
She was told there is plenty on it already???
It was brought to her but after a couple requests.
You are the best.
Thank you again.
One of the best steaks I’ve ever had. The food was delicious!
The food and service was excellent as always. However, my wife and I had a reservation and were placed in a dark corner near the bar. The crowd next to us was pretty rowdy, there were several fruit flies pestering us, and the lighting by our seats was very poor. We usually have a great time whenever we come to Charley's, but this past visit was ruined by the environment around us.
As always the service was superb and food was delicious. We were seated as per out reservation time.
Great food, Service and atmosphere 👍
Good special dining place
Food was not hot, especially the potatoes, which were cold. Waiter not the most personable. Somewhat indifferent to our request for Apple martini to point of recommending something we where not interested in. Have dined at Charley’s in Orlando several times and found service less than exceptional. This definitely last time we will join any Charley’s for a meal. In our opinion, no comparison to Capital Grill, Perry’s Steak House or Ocean Prime.
We loved, loved, loved our visit to Charley's Steak House on New Year's Day 2020! My family and some close family friends - ten of us - enjoyed a special private dining experience in the wine room. Mr. Fish, our server, was THE BEST at explaining all of our drink and food choices. If he ever left the restaurant business, he could be in sales :) His descriptions had our mouths watering and taste buds sizzling!
I highly recommend Charley's...not only for the excellent steak; but, for their seafood options, as well.
Absolutely amazing is the best way to describe our dining experience at Charley’s Steak House. Yes, it is a pricy restaurant to be sure, but what you’re paying for is so much more than a good meal in a nice atmosphere. The quality and the attention to every detail of the enjoyment of that food is what makes it worth every penny you pay. Everyone in our party had a different entre and everyone enjoyed everything about their meal. No disappointments, no complaints. Shelly was our server, and she was the best, attentive to our every need and request. This is a restaurant that should be on everyone’s list if you’re in Tampa.
We love Charleys!! They never disappoint and honestly we think it’s the best steakhouse in Tampa.
We went to get a drink at the bar while we waited to be seated for our reservation and the 3 bartenders looked at us and passed us by several times so we decided to just get drinks after we were seated. The drink my BF ordered was not the correct gin that he ordered but he didn't want to complain about it. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were a little disappointed that we didn't get to view the tray of meats before ordering. My filet was excellent, although I ordered medium and it came out medium rare. My BF's bison steak was not the best cut but he still enjoyed it. The salads and the side dishes were perfect. We will be back to give Charley's another chance in the future as it is my BF's favorite steakhouse and we look forward to it!
Willie our server was amazing. Met friends their for dinner on NYE prior to going out. Fun, energetic atmosphere as the patrons as well as the staff were in a festive mood. Place was extremely busy however that did not dampen the mood!
