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!

It seemed the staff was a little confused about who was serving our table. However, the food was excellent. The air system was loud and made our table very cold.

This place is really nice. The service was perfect. It is a really expensive restaurant and the food portions are small. Besides that everything was good.

Quality beef, of course. Server was ambivalent . Shocked to see the price of Stone Crab Claws at $50 each. (I should have asked the market price) Everything else was as expected.

Went for Valentine's Day dinner. Server was very good and knowledgeable about everything on the menu and the entire staff was very attentive. We had the Wagyu (sp?) ribeye and it was delicious. Best steak my wife or I have had. If you're looking for a great night out with a significant other and are in the mood for steak, this is the place!

It was a nice restaurant. The service was great. The atmosphere was wonderful. I loved being showed the meat. It was a nice experience, but for the money you are spending I am not sure if I would go back. I loved the experience but a little over priced.

Charlie’s is clearly the best steakhouse in Tampa. It is a little pricey so we save it for just special occasions but it has unparalleled fillet mignon. Don’t be surprised to spend $120 for two people.
Bring a sweater.

We visited Charley's on Valentines Day. We had a early romantic dinner. Our steaks were perfect. You can taste that Oak and Cherry wood flavor infused into the steak through the cooking process. Our 12 oz filet's were cooked perfectly rare; just the way we like them. We shared roasted veggies; It was fantastic. We had a sampling of a lot of vegetables, even some new ones that I was unfamiliar with. It was the perfect amount. Romantic or business dinner? Charley's is great for either.

I have been to Charlies many times and the server we had was horrible. He barely came by the table, everything he did seemed to take twice as long as the servers at other tables. I am used to excellent service at Charley's and was pretty disappointed.

Steaks were fantastic 28oz dry aged ribeye and a 12 oz filet, but was disappointed with the sides we ordered(jumbo asparagus and lobster Mac and cheese). Asparagus was small and looked shriveled up, the bite was tough on some of them. The lobster Mac and cheese was like a perfect square that looked like it was cut out of a giant pan which was very unappealing , and I don’t actually think it was “lobster Mac and cheese” I think it was just Mac and cheese with a few pieces of lobster tossed on top.. but the taste of it was “ok”. Overall, All other aspects were great as were the steaks. Just gotta get those sides fixed and I’ll be a customer for life.

Steak was magnificent! The sides were very good with exception of wood-fired vegetables. I would not order that again. The atmosphere was very nice. A+ for the meal. Thank you Charley’s.

This place is amazing!! My girlfriend and I went there for a early V-Day Dinner. Drinks (Old Fashion & Washington Apple) were the best we have ever tasted. The steaks melt in your mouth, the staff is 5 star and know every aspect of the drinks and food. For me this is a once or twice a year outing due to price. However, you do get what you pay for!

Ordered a variation on surf and turf, admittedly not the $140 option for two, but the lobster on top of my steak was fork size/bite size. Literally a piece to taste only. Steak was great and prepared as ordered. Overall great time but felt over priced for what we got

Very loud...hard to talk and hear. One guest did spill wine, so I had to sit with a wine soaked table cloth for the remainder of the evening.
