We enjoyed our evening and the food was very good. My only comment was that I spilled my Peach Bellini shortly after it arrived. My fault. But, I thought just maybe the waiter would have offered to replace it for me. That would have been nice. It was my birthday dinner. And, that was my first and only drink so I wasn't over celebrating. I didn't order another one.

We really enjoyed our meal here which was prepared perfectly as we requested. Nicole our waitress was top notch she attended to all our needs. We like we were dining at a New York restaurant again the service was so good. 5 stars across the board for this one.

Server was the best!! Very friendly and right there every time you needed her. Desserts of key lime pie and carrot cake we shared were to die for! Other food was very good.... Croissants were very special. Ambiance very nice. Old dinner club feel. We loved it! Definitely going back.

A nice menu but a bit pricey especially bar beverages. The food is plentiful and servings are large perhaps too large but everything was tasty. The dynamite shrimp were very good. It was crazy busy and therefore loud. The physical ambiance is pleasant but the noise level impacts the overall ambiance. The service was good but somewhat slow due to the size of the crowd. Our server was harried. It's a good place but not a go-to spot I would frequent.

We had a group of 18 .. all women .. for lunch at Charleston's .. and we found it to be a most enjoyable experience. The atmosphere there is nice, the servers were wonderful, attentive, upbeat and very friendly. The food was fabulous, and we had quite a variety of dishes, due to the size of the group. It was a most enjoyable experience, and if we are ever planning a trip in that direction again, it would be a place of choice! Recommend it highly.

Very good visit this time. Brynn was a great server. We were having dinner(three of us) that had known each other for more than 70 years but had not seen each other in a number of years. The noise level was just what we needed for good conversation. Brynn checked on us enough to keep our drinks full and food tasty but was not annoying.

Thanks

Charleston's is one of our favorite go-to spots for dinner at least twice a month. Their food is tantamount to comfort food and the prices and service are always on-point.

Such a classy and relaxing atmosphere. The staff is consistent and amazing. I enjoy bringing my colleagues and friends to Charleston’s as I confident they will enjoy a great meal and adult beverage. I also left my company cell phone at my table and management locked it in their safe for me to retrieve the next day. When I returned to retrieve my phone, the manager required me to utilize my passcode to open the cell phone to validate that it was mine. That meant a lot. P.S. Shrimp escargot is the best appetizer ever!

a bit disappointed this time. The noise level was a lot less than normal but it was Monday night so there was not a big crowd. The service was odd. Took drink order for two of us then when the other couple came the lady excused herself for a few minutes. Took the drink for the gentleman and somebody else delivered his drink She did not come back and we finally hailed another.

She came back and took our food order. Somebody else delivered the food(another server). My plate was warm on one side but not so on the other. Order was taken back and redone. The plate was returned and all of it was hot. Never saw our server again until she delivered the tab.

We have been here before and the service is usually outstanding. Not sure what happened this time.

BTW...don't order the chicken enchilada's.

Good food, fair prices, good service. Loud atmosphere. The prime rib was ok, but a little over priced for the atmosphere. Other entrees are priced fairly.

As I have commented previously, this place is a gem. Food is very good, with the exception of the spaghetti squash, and the service is fantastic regardless as to who is your assigned server. It is a bit on the noisy side with background noise but overall a must for dinner and drinks.
