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!

Stopped by Charley's on a recommendation of the Double Tree front desk. Charlies is a pretty nice steakhouse with the typical steakhouse dark wood feel. Our waiter Rich truly enjoyed his job, it was pretty clear. We allowed him to go through his steak on a board routine. It was pretty standard, but honestly a bit 1990's steakhouse cheesy.

Our 1st drinks were pretty watered down. I ordered a Hendricks and tonic and my wife, a Tito's and soda. Neither drink tasted like anything but tonic/soda.

Our wine can in a reasonable amount of time. They do have a pretty extensive wine list.

Dinner was served and WOW! the steaks are HUGE. Wish we had known this. Probably would have gotten an appetizer and split a steak. But that's not a complaint. My only complaint was the cheesy pink "Medium Rare" stick placed in the center of the steak. Made it feel a little like applebees.

We will absolutely be back next time in town. If you go, make sure you ask for Rich... the man is a pleasure.

OUTSTANDING!!!!!! This restaurant is amazing if you love food, fine wine and great drinks. Not to mention the appetizers. Took my office employees out for dinner. Not a cheap meal but one you wont forget. My employees wont stop talking about it. From the front door you are treated like a guest and not a customer. They take pride in their food and your experience. I would recommend this place to royalty. Try the wagyu ribeye you will not be disappointed.

We recently went with friends and this was our second time visiting and once again we thoroughly enjoyed it! Absolute wonderful experience! Our server was Suzi and she seemed very knowledgeable about every item offered and was very sweet! Our food was amazing! The flavor was above and beyond delicious. We started with a wonderful bottle of Chianti. We enjoyed the shareable sides for sure! The lobster mac & cheese was delicious. We also got the scalloped potatoes as well as the loaded mashed. Our appetizer was the fried green tomatoes and they were awesome! We highly recommend Charley's! A true experience to say the least. Thank you for the wonderful evening!

I cant say enough about what a great experience this was. I informed that i would be attending post proposing to my gf. They did a small thing to have a sign on the table that indicated we were cleebrating an anniversary. The staff congratualted and asked what it was. It helped the dinner feel that much more special. Food is a bit pricey but made to share which makes it more affordable. The food also, Amazing. When asked for a recommendation waitress indicated an item that wasn't on the menu that she really liked. It was the perfect item. Really great food, experience staff, etc.

Service was just fair. Probably because we were splitting a dinner. 18 ounce strip had a lot of tissue not easy to chew. We trimmed a lot out of fat off. For what we got for $70 plus tip Outback would be less and quality as good or better.

This is the best steak house in the Tampa Bay area. I have dined here for the past 15 years and tried other steak houses in Tampa and St. Pete but this one has the best service, steaks, ambiance and affordability. You cannot go wrong at Charley's for an outstanding and memorable dining experience!

We had a reservation for Friday night at 8:30. We arrived at 8:20 there was only one other couple waiting to be sat. Their were seated almost immediately. About 5 min later three gentlemen walked in without a reservation and were sat immediately. They seemed to know some employees so I’m guessing that’s why. About 8:35 another couple arrived again without a reservation and were also sat immediately. I approached the host stand and asked when we would be sat and that our reservation was for 8:30. The same host that greeted me when I arrived asked for my name again. We weee the only people in the waiting area and there were several empty tables. Once seated we still had to wait another 10 min before being greeted by our server. Once we got our drinks and ordered the service was acceptable. The salad was tasteless and the garlic cheddar rolls were bland as well. The steak was excellent but overall Charley’s was a huge disappointment considering the price of the food. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone else.

Very nice restaurant! Setting is beautiful and elegant. There is also a private room that provides an exclusive location within the restaurant. Food is pricey, but well prepared, and well worth it if your the sort who can appreciate the intricacies of a meticulously prepared meal. Wait staff was very knowledgeable about the menu, food prep, even explaining the different aging processes they use on the steaks. They are also happy to let you enjoy your dining experience with those you came with.

While the restaurant was in a good location and the service was great I did not like my steak. I thought it was overpriced as well. My husband did like his steak. The asparagus was over cooked and stringy with no flavor. I did like the ambiance and and the Sommelier and our Server were awesome. At this price range I would NOT recommend this steakhouse. I would suggest going to Berns or Ruth Chris.
