Food &service were very good. My only complaint is that open table did NOT give me the 100 points that I usually get.

What an amazing experience. James went above and beyond. His knowledge of wine had us leaving with a new favorite. Will definitely be returning.

Charlestons has been consistently good for value, service, food. THAT IS WHY WE HAVE GONE THERE WEEKLY during these pandemic times. it’s a winner. German cake with coconut frosting is out of this world. Worth every $9. penny and we take home and sample a bit of its rich yumminess for days... A little goes a long way in taste....it is made with rich ingredients.

This was our first time there. Celebrating friends birthday & anniversary. Service was so friendly & attentive. Water, tea, lemonade was replenished before you could even ask.
The food we have was top notch. The best I've had in a while. My husband had the baby back ribs and they were exceptional. I had the meatloaf and it was delicious.

This is my favorite place now.

We ate outside on the patio and it was lovely although a bit dark (it was difficult to read the menus). However service and food were both excellent.

We have been there three pandemic weekends in a row. That must say something! Good service, good prices, yummy food. German cake is out of this world! A generous piece to share or bring home to eat for several days. Did I say it was rich? Enjoy a little at a time.

Always a great place to eat. Normally have prime rib but we had the Arizona restaurant week special and it was absolutely fabulous. Hint: the carrot cake for desert will never disappoint.

Although a chain restaurant, Charlestons did not disappoint. Our server, Marcella was pleasant and gave pleasant outstanding service. The food was timely served with generous portions, tasty and hot. Deserts would serve 3 to 4 people and we were so full, we took ours to go. Honestly, I didn't want to like this place as much as I did, but it was excellent overall. Very fairly priced for the fare and portions offered. Highly recommended.

Good value for Restaurant Week not sure I'd think that if it wasn't. Appetizers were very good and arrived hot and were delicious. We had the shrimp, flatbread and the spinach dip. 3 of the 4 of us did restaurant week menu and it was okay. The cuts of meat were perhaps not up to expectation but they were a special so that makes sense. The key lime pie was HUGE for dessert and we ended up taking that home. Service was slow and we waited a long time for drinks to come from the bar. It was a nice night but not sure we would be back anytime soon based on service and quality of meat we were served.

We went during AZ Restaurant Week and couldn’t have had a better afternoon. Food was great. Our server was fantastic. Since it’s during limited seating COVID-19, the noise level was nonexistent. We couldn’t have had a nicer afternoon.

Drove from Surprise for Rest. Week "special". Portions were amazing..........very large; service was outstanding. And, of course, price was right! Just wish appetizer selection would have been more to our "taste". No worries; thoroughly enjoyable. Wish you were in the West Valley

Our whole experience was so positive with the delightful server Holly. She has a cheerful and helpful personality. We were there last weekend and came back because of the friendly atmosphere and good pandemic distancing. My daughter had the same tasty hamburger as last week and I had the Philly Steak sandwich. But I spied a dessert on the next table and had to try it. It is the German cake with coconut icing and is out of this world served warm. We brought most of it home. The portions are good, the value and the tasty food. Sounds like a winner to me.

It was a midday lunch on a pandemic Sunday. The service was good and the waitress did all the right things. The food was delicious. My visiting daughter had a salad and a medium rare hamburger fixed perfectly. She loved the ranch dressing on her side salad.
I had yummy chicken enchiladas which were so flavorful. This place does not disappoint and the value is good.

Kids sirloin was disappointing - besides being extremely small, it was over cooked! We would have sent it back if not for the time factor. Wine pricing is a bit much!!!

It was nice. The features sounded good. The Parmesan crusted chicken was done very well. I was surprised y the children’s menu. There is a flatbread pizza on the main menu but no option on the kids menu. I asked for a flatbread just sauce and cheese and no problem. My daughter loved it.
The problem I had was the bill. We were charged $13 for the main menu flatbread that comes with basil and sausage. Everything on the children’s menu is $8 with a drink and my daughter drank water.
Not happy with the lack of customer service

We have been dining at Charlestons for many years. The salmon is my favorite dish. It was served with brussel sprouts. I love brussel sprouts, but the glaze on them was so sweet, it did not taste good at all. We had the New England Clam chowder, that was delicious. My husband ordered the ribeye special. Very pricy for the small steak he received. $37 for a steak the size of my hand and it was thin too. Our son was in town (he's a Marine) so it was a special occasion. Our waitress was nice and attentive, a little hard to understand because of the mask though. We had a good time and a good overall experience.

It’s been awhile since we’ve gone out and I hadn’t been to Charleston’s in a long time. Hubby had never been so we treated ourselves to dinner. We both had the specials- his steak and for my swordfish.
Perfectly cooked and flavors worked great. Great staff and overall great experience

I have never had a bad meal at Charlestons. The ambiance is peaceful. The only problem for me is the booths. The seats are so much lower than the table.
