Perfect meal to end a perfect Spring day in Arizona. Hostess staff were great and shared the daily soup specials. Our server was on point. It’s pretty easy waiting on tables when the food is perfectly prepared - cheeseburger and fries; chicken tender platters; and a prime rib plate. Salads were terrific! Simple fare but fantastic. Wish we had room for dessert.

Our server was very attentive and professional. The menu was a bit limited for lunch options. We ordered two salads and a sandwich, few options for gluten free or vegan meals. They did not have a soy or almond milk option for coffee. Servings were generous.

We go to Charleston’s on Ray Road at least once a month and the food and service is alway great. I’m sorry to say the one in Mesa was NOT. The service was so bad we asked to see the manager. I will never go back.

He was very attentive and familiarized us with the menu choices. Long story short our food was delicious and our service exceeded our expectations. We hope to return VERY soon!

There were four in our party, three of us had the 10 oz. prime rib and loved it. Waitress Jess was timely and the meal was perfect in temp, taste, and had a good presentation. This is the 1st time I had been here, we were meeting friends from Nebraska, so we met at the Mesa Charleston. I was thankful that the food was excellent, especially since I had recommended it after viewing google and yelp. LOL

Hands down the best prime rib dips ever. Medium rare shaved prime rib. No fat and flavorful aujus. The fresh croissants are heavenly and a must! Our server was great, but we had to ask several times for the same thing and half way thru dinner when everyone was still eating and ordering drinks, he tried to bring us boxes. This was only reason for four stars not 5.

Overall everything was fine, but the charge for side dishes, such as vegetables is now $5! Seems a bit excessive. The filet mignon came with your choice of potato, but if you want a veggie, be ready to add another $5. Want a salad, add another $5 or so. Seems like they’ve kept up with price increases on the main menu items, then gone the route of airlines, charging for every additional thing. Flemings does the same thing but at least their sides are shareable.

Three of the people at our table ordered the Brussels sprouts and they were not even close to be cooked all the way. They stick around to verify your steak is done correctly, but by the time they come back, it’s too late to complain about the sprouts. We just got them to go and will finish cooking them at home.

Charleston's continues to exceed our expectations. The food is that of a very high-end and much more expensive restaurant and maybe even better. Attention to detail is very evident in their food preparation and presentation. Service is as good as I have ever had anywhere. Best Manhattan

I will start with my long term thoughts about Charleston's. I love this store and we are long term repeat customers. We always get the special house salad with the warm croissant. It's wonderful along with the herbal vinaigrette. I buy some of this salad dressing to take home because I love the flavor so much. Along with the salad, my husband and I split the large cut prime rib. It's always minimal fat. The potato and serving is so large that we can easily split and have plenty to fulfill us. We usually do not need make reservations but have started to do so with all the winter visitors. This time we made a reservation for after the movie. The only table left was for two (we were two) way in the back and placed there like an afterthought. I wasn't pleased so they moved us to another table that had just opened up. From that point forward every thing was great. They need to get rid of that table. That was my only negative from this visit. Love the food. Love the service. You can tell that they take great pride in their training of staff.

Made a reservation through OpenTable, arrived at the restaurant right at our reservation time, 7:30pm, and we were promptly seated. Service was outstanding as well as the ambiance. My only issue was my filet mignon, in the dead center of the steak, was cooked medium rare versus what I requested, which was medium. What really impressed me was being able to eat a full meal, including desert, in 56 minutes as we left at 8:26pm.
