We have gone to Charleston's for years! It always meets our expectations. There are so many delicious entrees that it is always hard to decide every time we go! The service is great! We like that we can substitute sides that may be with an entree if we don't particularly like that side. My favorite "side" is the baked potato which is huge - we take half, or sometimes the whole thing, home to have later because it is so delicious. They always have a couple soups to choose from. You guessed it - my favorite is the potato soup! Of course one must finish the meal with a dessert and they have one with chocolate so that is perfect for us. I would suggest that, during the fall and winter it would be good to make a reservation so you don't have to wait for such good dining. The service staff is exceptional. Tiffany, our server the other night, was solicitous without being obtrusive. She was cheerful, kind and very efficient. Great place to go out with family and friends! More

The brunch was pricey but it was worthwhile. Tremendous selection of food, fruits, salads, desserts and more - the Quesadilla station was great and the overall service superb. They prepare omelets and an excellent prime rib. Children pay 26 and adults like 58. I would go again but not invite too many people :) I strongly recommend it for brunch and don’t eat anything befor you go. You would regret it! More

Delicious! Our server, Scott, was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful! The food was marvelous and very affordable. The spiciness levels are a bit uneven (some things marked spicy are not very spicy while others are on fire!) but everything is very flavorful. Love the naan bread, spicy prawn appetizer, and all the lamb dishes! Can't wait to come back and try more. More
