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!

Everything was excellent. There was confusion regarding my appetizer - I spoke about crab cakes (can they compete with this Marylander's crab cakes?) then ordered shrimp cocktail. Our check said shrimp, but I was brought the crab cakes :) same price, and pretty good.
Amber was an excellent waitress.
We'll be back.

My steak was not cooked properly or at least the way I asked. The salad was soggy but both the steak and salad tasted good. It was our first time and I had high expectations but they have since been lowered. I have been to Burns and Ruth Chris several times. Have also been to other higher end restaurants and was hoping Charley’s would be a home run but it was not. The dessert and bread was the saving grace! However, when bread and dessert are the stars of the show but the steak is to be center stage it leaves you wondering.

The manager asked if I wanted another steak. Why ask that question? I don’t want to wait and you didn’t get it right the first time; someone let it leave the leave kitchen overcooked thinking that was okay. They comped my steak but that was it. I appreciated the gesture but not sure they went far enough to win a repeat customer.

The service at Charley’s was outstanding. Our waiter, Dakota, was very attentive. The food was okay, but didn’t meet the lofty reputation that Charley’s has established. My Porterhouse steak was tough and undercooked slightly. My wife’s filet mignon was okay, but nothing special. The highlight of the meal were the garlic cheddar rolls and key lime pie which were great. The complimentary meatball appetizer was a nice touch. The Amica wine recommendation from the somalier was an excellent choice. Overall, the service and attention to details were great, especially since it was my wife’s birthday. Unfortunately, the food was not as great as I expected. I wouldn’t go out of the way to dine there in the future.

Andrea, the managing partner did an excellent job of making our experience a fantastic one. I had reached out to her to explain how badly my service was when I attended weeks ago. I decided to give it another chance and I have to say with all honesty that this place has redeemed themselves and then some. The severs name was Matt, he was fantastic as usual. I will be asking for him everytime from now on. The seabass I ordered and it was absolutely fantastic. Im glad that this establishment takes the time to go over the history within the place and other locations. Most places could care less. Thank you to Charleys and to Andrea and Matt for making this a definite place that I will continue to patron!!!!

The service was very good. I got a filet that was good. My husband ordered a porterhouse medium rare. The filet part was overdone so the manager got him an 8 ounce filet that ended up not being good either. They took 50 percent off his meal but I was very disappointed. We went for our anniversary and it ended up just being okay. We had been in the past and really enjoyed.

Ribeye wasn’t evenly cooked, well done on one side very rare on the other. Not worth it - will continue going to berns or OP moving forward.

Wonderful evening celebrating a special occasion in the Wine Cellar Room. The service was fabulous and the Charley’s experience- steaks, sides and appetizers were perfection. We really enjoyed the smoky cocktails too- interesting and delicious! Thanks for a memorable evening!

Had a recent dinner at Charley's. I was very impressed with how very good service was provided during this very difficult time if the pandemic.

The food was consistent with past visits - very good but didn't rise to being superlative. This probably will improve when things get back to normal. Be prepared to tap into your home equity line when the bill comes. :)

We always have a great experience at Charley’s. The service was fantastic and our food was great. I had the pork chop and my husband had a ribeye, both cooked and seasoned to perfection. The cauliflower was sooooooo good. A moth flew into my wine and our server was more upset than I was....lol. (We do live in Florida). She took it away and a manager brought out a new one and apologized all with in a couple minutes. We love Charley’s and will go again for sure. With all of that being said, it is fairly expensive and you wouldn’t expect any less. Not something most could afford on a routine basis.
