Charley has gotten very pricy for not a lot of food. My steak wasn't the best cut and certainly not very tender. There are a lot better out there for cheaper. The inside of the restaurant needs a refresh...

The food is fantastic but service was dismal. The waitress was in an absolute hurry at all times except when trying to sell us on expensive cuts of meat. There were huge breaks between times we'd see her and when she did come to our table, she was sloppy and shoved our leftovers into takeout boxes so roughly, we had to wipe down the boxes before handling them. When it came time to pay the bill, she turned to us in such a hurry, we got showered with water from the table across the way. When 2 people spend $300 on a special occasion dinner, I would expect service that feels like we were more than an inconvenient chore.

Excellent service from Fish and partner Rick(?). Excellent food. Varied menu. Had reservations but still encountered a 20+ minute wait to be seated. But pleased restaurant honored request for a quieter corner table location.

High priced. Entrees include salad, bread, and water. Everything else is an up charge including pricey toppings. Other TOTT locations like Fish Bones include sides with entree pricing and also offer salad refills at no additional charge.

Probably won’t return due to cost but highly recommend to those with unlimited funds! Food was delicious!

Holding our breath hoping Orlando Fish Bones location reopens - can’t be soon enough!

Horrible! Reservations for my husbands birthday. We placed our order - when it arrived his was raw! They took an $85 dry aged porterhouse and put it back on the grill, by the time his returned to the table I was done eating and his sides were cold. They offered to to bring another side. He refused because by that time he’d probably be done with
his steak. They took the side off the bill. Horrible expensive dinner experience for a celebration night

We were seated immediately at our reservation time, in a quaint, semi-private booth. Our server, Thomas, was incredibly kind, knowledgeable, and helpful throughout the entire meal as it was our first visit. Due to celebrating my husband’s birthday there, the manager brought over a complimentary appetizer (the meatballs) which isn’t on the menu, and they were absolutely amazing! My husband agreed that it was some of the best food he’s ever eaten, and he enjoyed leftovers today. We finished it off with a complimentary dessert and an extra dessert (salted caramel cheesecake) to take home!

Love Charley's first and foremost. They are great but unfortunately, this meal had a problem. The filet was perfect and all of the rest except for the New York strip steak and the dessert - chocolate cake which we took home. The New York strip steak was tough, supposed to be medium rare and when we had it just the week before was excellent. This time, I ate 3 bites and left it that. The chocolate cake taken home for dessert was also not fresh. Again, last week's dinner New York strip and Chocolate cake were perfect. Sorry to have to write this but what happened?

The worst service I have received in a high end restaurant. We went there for my husbands 40th birthday tonight. We were not shown the steak options, not offered refills on our beverages and had to wait 20 minutes for dessert after being told snidely they were running behind when we inquired. Lastly, the manger stopped by, asked if everything was going well, dropped off his card and never stopped to hear a reply. Very disappointed.

Great steaks! Red Snapper was good, needed more seasoning. Blackened Salmon was just ok, nothing special. All sides are enough to share between three or four people, especially the Lobster Mac & Cheese. Drinks were great too!

We let Charley's know we were coming to treat a bride and groom to the best steak dinner they'd ever had and Charley's pulled out all the stops. They set us up in a private room with an excellent server, Joseph, which made the experience the best it possibly could have been. The bride and groom were blown away and will remember that for the rest of their lives.

My husband and I went for my 55th birthday dinner. It was truly amazing! Thomas, who looks and sound alot like Ryan Reynolds 🤪, was attentive and informative. Charley's is expensive but so well worth it.

Our family of 9 had a wonderful meal. Our waiter was excellent, but you could see the restaurant was short staffed due to Covid and the unlimited amount of money people are getting to stay home with unemployment! Overall it was a great night and the staff who are working were great. The only negative thing about the dinner was the bill. Prices are high, but sometimes you get what you pay for!
