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!

Dinner was amazing. A great way to spend 2 special birthdays for mom and grandpa. Unfortunately, we were rushed out because of a curfew imposed by the Tampa mayor. No fault of Charlies, just not the way to end a great dining experience.

Charley’s is always great! My husband a ordered medium rare steak and he got medium instead. The steak was still amazing, other than that, we highly recommended it!

We came out to Charley's to celebrate a special occasion. We ordered the calamari appetizer which was really good. We also ordered two ribeyes, one dry aged and one one bison. Originally I ordered medium rare like I always do, but the waitress insisted that they reccomend medium tempature for the most amount of flavor and tenderness, so i took her advice. I wish I would have ordered it medium rare as the steak was chewy, dry, and just disappointing. The bison was more tender, with a softer feel similar to a filet. However it was still a bit tough which is surprising to me considering how much marveling is in a river and how tender they usually are. Honestly, ive been to Berns, Ocean Prime, Eddy Vs, Haven (owned by berns) and every one of them had a delicious, juicy steak. I don't think we will be returning. We also had to pour our own wine and water refills which for a higher end restaurant is unheard of.

Don Gunsalus (manager) made the occasion memorable. While I grew up with Charley’s since the 1980’s on OBT in Orlando, this was my fiancé’s first time. Looking forward to starting new traditions here in Tampa.

We were not pleased with the quality of the food. The staff and service was excellent and very friendly. The salads did not look fresh but they tasted fine. We ordered the 50 oz porterhouse to split with a 1lb lobster tail. The steak was cooked right but it was very dry. There were no juices. It was tender but had a lot of gristle and fat. It just was not juicy or that tasty to us. The lobster seemed over-cooked and was also dry and rubbery. The mashed potatoes also did not look fresh and had a brown color to them rather than a tie white color. Not very fluffy. We did have the crab cake appetizers that were delicious and loaded with crab. Overall the food just didn't seem worthy of the prices to us.

I’d you’re looking for the best steak in Florida Charley’s is your spot! With a wide range of different cuts you’re guaranteed to find something you’ll like! Their beverages appetizers and dessert (butter cream pie is my absolute favorite. I always take one Togo too) never let you down. A wide range of wines makes choosing your choice but you won’t regret whatever one you choose. If you’re on the fence about going, do it. 100% quality

We had an outstanding dinner at Charley’s.
Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was top notch and they seemed sincerely appreciative of us being there.
They even gave us s little pound cake samples as we left that thanked us for dining with us; and they were great too.
We’ll go back.

Overall excellent as usual, minor issue that for some reason they decided not to give straws. We have been to all types of eateries since the ban was lifted and Charley's was the only place that didn't have straws.

Superb opening night. This and Berns were the two restaurants we were eager to return. They are taking distancing and masks seriously (the consistent brand red was a nice touch...which Publix should emulate...) Martinis better than ever. Food fine as usual. Thanks.
