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!

Food quantities too large for average person. Generally felt food overpriced.

Wasn’t impressed with our waiter. Didn’t have a full booth. There was absolutely no lobster in our lobster Mac n cheese. We were never offered to see the manager.

Crazy dudes in booth next to us were chugging red wine like Bud Light bros... I had been ten years ago and remembered it better than this visit

Great food. Great service. Second time in a row we were seated in the bar area. Bar area seating creates a very poor experience.

It was out first visit to Charley’s and our waiter was phenomenal and answering all our questions and being entertaining and very responsive.
I had the 8 ounce filet with the huge shrimp and my boyfriend had the Waygu steak... they were cooked perfectly with amazing flavor and tenderness. Our salads and sides were amazingly flavorful!!
I had Pinot Grigio and he had crown infused with Apple that was out of this world and it is there in itself!
However, we did bring some of our leftovers home so that we could have room for an amazing dessert… I had the crème brûlée and he had the apple pie with whipped cream which was delicious!
We truly cannot say enough about how positive our experience was and the cost was less than we would’ve anticipated for all that we had.

I have eaten at many steakhouses and Charleys was the Best!! I would rate it 10 stars if possible! Food top notch... service even better. Hope you can make it there and enjoy as much as we did!

We had a fantastic experience at Charley’s! Made a reservation at Bern’s over a week in advance and they screwed up the date! We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and they made NO effort to correct the error! Luckily, Charley’s came to the rescue. They gave us a wonderful table. Our server made the night so special for us! The food was superb. Couldn’t have asked for more.

We were an eightsome first timers and we all thought the food was excellent . We came up from Fort Myers and it was well worth the drive. Recommend Charlies to all.

Excellent food with some unusual features, service superb, prices 5 star. First time I ever saw a Madagascar Shrimp, Chilean Sea Bass was larger serving than usual, steaks sized large but cooked to perfection.

Outstanding. We were going to a play at the Straz and did not want to drive because we were drinking. So, we Ubered to restaurant and we had left overs that we did not think we would be able to take with us because we did not have car and couldn’t take food to show. Joseph, our waiter, kept our left overs in the kitchen fridge until after the show, when we Ubered home pitstopping at Charley’s to pick them up. Charley’s and Joseph were wonderful and helped make the night spectacular!
