We had the nicest waitress and the atmosphere was quiet. The food had a lot to be desired. The Calamari was not prepared well. IT was over cooked and the peppers had no taste. It seemed like the salad was sitting around all night. It had wilted lettuce and was uneatable. The steak was mediocre and way over priced. I would have rather cooked my own steak at home. I cannot recommend the restaurant in Tampa. Other locations may be better.
It was my husband's birthday. We had a great meal, and our server, Patrick, was wonderful.
Returned to celebrate another special occasion and this is my favorite place to be for these days, Along the atmosphere, the food and the prices bring me back.
great steak, service was excellent. overall great dining experience
Had a 5 pm reservation and asked for a booth ended up in the almost dark bar area.
Table sucked royally!
We has reservations for my wife’s birthday. We had a wonderful experience as always at Charley’s. Our waiter was excellent and provided a memorable evening for us both. GREAT JOB
I just want to comment that the Food here is The BEST. The service very well Trained.
However we did get a SHOCK, we were presented with a choice of two appetizers
not on the menu, specials...Never occurred to me to ask the price. Three small Stone
Crab Claws. $ 79.00.....APPETIZER. ! wow....
My point is that when restaurants have entree presentations at the table, the presenter
should also state the price of the entree. Especially when it can not be found on any Menu.
The food and drinks are always fantastic! Try the cantaloupe martini.
24 ounce veal chop excellent. Crab cake appetizer not up to par, very average for $19 appetizer.
taste of crab cake and amount of lump crab very average.
Charley’s experience was average. While the service was ok, it by no means was special. The presentation about the menu was very interesting but that did not change the flavor of the steaks which I found a bit bland and uninspired. The dessert bread pudding was great. I do not have to spend what we did to have a great dinner in s very cozy atmosphere. Will not be back.
Always a good time!
We had reservations but once we got inside there was a little wait but the waitress was nice and the food was amazing.
My wife and I really enjoyed the entire experience at Charley’s Steakhouse. The food was amazing, the service was amazing. We give it big thumbs up.
Wonderful reputation for service and food, but on this visit both myself and business colleague had to send out steaks back due to our requested "medium" almost being RAW !! never thought that would happen here. Service was great.
We were over the top happy with this place. Best steak we have ever had! Highly recommend if your looking for a dining experience that you can't compare. My husband has dined all over the world and his ribeye he order has taken the #1 spot on best steaks he has ever eaten. Compliments to the cheif!!
As always, the food, service, and experience is incredible. The filet melted like butter. Bacon wrapped scallops are fantastic. We all had a wonderful time with Suzi taking care of us.
The Best Steak House in Tampa! It doesn't get any better!
When I booked a table I let them know about my food allergies. When our server greeted us she confirmed my allergies and had a list prepared of menu items I could have. It was so refreshing to have a server committed to assisting me with my food options! The food was delicious as were the drinks. Amber was our server and she was friendly and attentive. We had a cozy table and had a wonderful time.
The food, service, atmosphere were superb. Will be coming back again for sure.
Fantastic food! Must try!
Our server, Desiree, was excellent - knowledgeable, friendly, efficient and able to make recommendations. She read our table professionally, knowing when to approach and when to hang back. In my experience the food is reliably delicious at Charley's, so the quality of service can be the cherry on top. We felt that Desiree was genuinely pleased to serve us and that made our experience a great one.
Unbelievable service. Great food and superb drinks.
We had a wonderful meal. Our server was Willie - he was informative, not overbearing, accommodating, gave great suggestions and added to our experience. We have both lived in the Tampa Bay area for years and are glad we finally came. We split the Fantastic Filet which was delicious and enough for two.
They have a wine list for all price ranges which is nice to see.
The service was great! The food was not up to Charley's Steakhouse food. It seems it has changed & not for the good. I have been to Charley's on several occasions & the food has been Great! This was not one of those times.
I love that they bring you the steak options & dessert options, it made it so much easier to decide what meal I’d like best. I also like that they don’t force you to get a side but when you do it’s for the whole family! I just wish they had different side options! But service was absolutely wonderful, felt very welcoming!
Was good after we requested to be moved from the bar area where they apparently refrigerate their meat. Was very dark and we had children in our party.
New table was excellent, plenty of light and pleasant temperature.
They were very good about the movement after proper parties were advised.
All in all was very good but expect the higher $$$.
Our waiter was excellent! Extremely knowledgeable and friendly! The food was outstanding!
Great ambiance and exceptional service. Food is top class.
Charley's was terrific as always. The service was great and the steaks were delicious. I particularly like that Charley's isn't stuffy like the other high end steak houses in town. Whether you are dressed up or going casual, you are welcome.
Great environment and great food! I always enjoy Charley's! You can't go wrong.
The room was extremely loud. The wait staff did their best to contain it and make sure we were happy. One steak (porterhouse) was full of tendons and grissel, leaving a good portion of it uneatable. The other steak (bone-in ribeye) was overcooked ... served medium instead of medium rare - likely due to sitting under warming lights too long. I have been here a few times before, leaving with a good impression, but this visit was extremely disappointing
Celebrated my husband’s birthday. From the moment we walked in the door we were treated like VIP guests. The food was perfectly prepared, from the appetizers to the desert. This is definitely worth another visit.
This was our second time here and I have to say it was by far one of the best experiences we have had at a restaurant. Our server was outstanding!!
Great steaks!! Good service ! Good location near airport
Overpriced.. old fashioned dreary decor...food average at best
Excellent server tonight.
Exceptional dining experience that will impress clients.
This is my second time eating at Charley's while on a business trip to the Tampa area, and I loaded up on seafood this time (had the Wagyu filet last time, and it was tender and flavorful). I had the mixed grill seafood with crab and the wonderful grilled Caesar Salad (impossibly delicious). The preparation of the Caesar and the fresh dressing are sweet-smoky flavors but with the crisp freshness of romaine. The mixed grill had two simple grilled fish, good portions of swordfish and salmon-- and their fish is all sustainable, shrimp scampi and a yummy breadcrumb and crab topping. Lots of food for the money, and cooked to showcase the natural flavors and succulence of the food. As good as seafood is anywhere. Service was attentive but relaxed, and I had a fabulous meal.
Private business dinner for 12. As always, Tori, our server, did an amazing job!
