For the first time in all the years we have frequented Charleston's we had to return our order of barbecued baby back ribs. They were dry and unedible. But, the waitress, Knika, was super accommodating and promptly brought us another order. This time, the ribs were fall-off-the bone tender. That was the only glitch. We will definitely return because this was an anomaly.

I've been to both Scottsdale and Mesa. Both are outstanding, high quality food and service. I noticed that the staff was sanitizing each booth between customers including the salt & pepper, sugar, etc. I could not tell if they were wiping the menues but everything I saw was sanitized with the customer in mind. Also, Mesa was full, so people are not staying home from this restaurant!.

We love this place. Charleston's was our choice for entertaining three out-of-town guests and we were not disappointed. They are still raving over it.
Everybody loved their food. My hubby loves their pork chops. One gal said it was the best steak and baked potato she had ever had. Two of us enjoyed the champagne salads. And everybody went crazy over the rolls. We had a fun evening and great service! Kudos to this restaurant team!

Our party consisted of several from out of state and the remainder were Arizona residents who were there for an unexpected death in the family. Our food, service and experience on whole was excellent. Those of us who are from out of the area look forward to our next visit and eating at Charleston's again and a few of the Arizona residents who had never eaten there can't wait to return. Thank you!

We love Charleston’s, food was great and service efficient. But on this occasion the kitchen was running faster than the bar — our dinner arrived just a few minutes after our pre-dinner cocktails even though we waited about 10 minutes before making our food order. Lesson learned, don’t order food until after drinks have been enjoyed.

We had a group of eight for lunch. Seated promptly and had adequate room at the tables. Our waiter didn't rush us, but took our orders in a timely manner. Each person ordered his/her own and we ended up with a nice variety off the lunch menu. The food was outstanding---in particular the reuben sandwich. Those who ordered it said "the best reuben ever". We had a great time thanks to our waiter and the kitchen. Will be back.

I’ve been dining at Charleston’s for many years, but the quality and service seem to be going downhill. On our most recent visit, the $20 French Dip sandwich was not well done as requested and tasted like an old grease pan.
Our actual server was nice and attentive, but some other server swooped by and grabbed my plate with fries still on it that I was enjoying — without asking me if he could take the plate. One of my biggest pet peeves is someone taking my plate or drink away without asking first!
Also — servers should be asking customers if they want a straw with their drink. Don’t make the customer hunt one down.
I know most of this starts at the management level and downward, so managers — please pay attention.
Going forward, we will drive 10-15 minutes further to Houston’s and Hillstone where for the same price as Charleston’s — the quality and service are far more superb!

If the fast and friendly service doesn't bring you back the food sure will! We got the prime rib and everything was great. The horseradish was savory and creamy, the auju actually had flavor unlike most places we go and the prime rib was cooked just the way we like it!

I would still recommend Charleston's even though I am giving the service a poor rating. I don't know if the kitchen was overwhelmed, the servers were short staffed, or there was no management on duty. But, it was the worst service we have ever had there. The meals were good. The Chicken Piccata on pasta was good and the side of mushrooms complimented the dish. The half rack of ribs were very tender, and the sweet glazed carrots are always delicious.

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.
