Steakhouse
Charley's Steak House is owned by the Woodsby family and has operated in Florida since 1974. Charley’s serves only three-year-old USDA prime and choice Angus steers, aging them four to six weeks for tenderness & flavor and hand-cutting the steaks daily to ensure consistent quality. The steaks are then flame-broiled over Florida citrus and oak wood in a custom-built pit at 1200º searing in the tantalizing taste that has made Charley’s the #1 steakhouse in America every year since 2007! Charley’s philosophy of providing only the finest extends from the kitchen to the wine cellar. The wine list approaches 1000 selections from scores of exceptional wineries around the globe. Charley’s has been recognized with numerous awards including “Best of Award of Excellence” from Wine Spectator magazine, DiRōNA and Orlando Magazine’s“ Best Steak House & Best Old Favorite”. Charley’s has been creating fans from around the world for nearly 40 years. We look forward to having you become a fan soon!

    I would rate 4.5 stars, if possible. The service was excellent; from the manager, Christopher, to our server, Brooke. They were engaging, interested in us, and attentive. The ambience was just fine: not too noisy, nor tomb-like. The food overall was great, but our steak, the 30 ounce ribeye, was not exactly medium well, as we requested, was quite medium. The taste of it was still very good; just bloodier than I would've liked. We did not make a fuss over it, though. I am sure they would've replaced it if we had said something. The key lime pie was terrific. We were celebrating our anniversary and have made a ritual of eating at a Charley's each anniversary. We would recommend them and plan on eating there again.

    The meal was good as the dry aged porterhouse was nice but had some tough spots. The bacon cheddar mashed potatoes were good and asparagus tasty. The meat tray spiel was overshadowed by the table next us getting the same spiel a few lines off which was terrible and rude. The upsell was everywhere and the Managemant attention to our table constant. The prices are way up since Covid.

    Service & Food was excellent. They had a special on our steak for $99, normally $175. We can highly recommend the steak but if you don’t like excessive fat, I would get a different cut. The dessert was well worth the extra calories.

    Let me start by saying Charley's is my absolute favorite steakhouse ever!!! I have been a customer for over 20 years and this is the first time I ate there that it was less than a 5 star experience. I am a hungry guy and do not live in the Orlando area, so when I go there it is always a treat, and I get the 50 ounce Porterhouse. It has ALWAYS been to temperature and completely amazing! Not so this time. Apparently 2 months ago, they started a new system at Charley's with the big steaks. They undercook them, then bring them tableside on a portable griddle to "finish them off". I find alot wrong about this method. They bring your oak and citrus cooked steak to your table sizzling on this griddle. The manager then cuts it up into strips in front of you and asks you if it cooked properly. I looked three feet away from me where my steak was in a restaurant known for it's low lighting and mood, and I couldn't tell. The server had a flashlight on him, but the manager did not shine a light on the steak so that I could get a proper look. It was too dark and far away to see. I said it was fine. However I ordered medium rare and this was barely past tar tar in the center of the steak. It was cool to the touch and super red. Barely cooked. On top of that, the garnish on the plate could literally have been a full salad. Give me the steak and let me cut it myself please. Unless they change this procedure back to - I don't know - a meat thermometer, I will never get the large steak again. I prefer to cut my own steak thank you and let it continue to cook itself from the inside so it will stay warm. Outside of that, my wife's steak was a little overcooked, but not bad, and appetizers and desert were amazing!!

    We made it a point to go while in Florida. It was my birthday and it seems the staff was made aware. Well it was such a special treat with their checking in, well wishes and just absolutely special service. We’ve been before and have truly enjoyed everything from beginning to end.

    Never disappointing! We absolutely love this place. We enjoyed a Caesar salad and cheesy bread first. Cocktails were Jameson neat and Tito's martini with blue cheese olives. Those olives are amazing every time! For our main course we shared a generous and delicious Porterhouse with a side of mash. Portions are perfect for sharing and not overeating! No dessert but another round of drinks! Enjoy as much as we do!

    This was our first visit to this location, we had been to the place on Orange Blossom Trail many times, but it had been years since we had been to Charley's. They did not disappoint. As always, the service was wonderful, the knowledge of the staff on the wines and food, amazing, as always. It was my daughter's birthday, she had not been since she was a teenager, this was her fiancé's first visit, and he was blown away. We had the crab cake for an appetizer, it was delicious. We all had steaks, perfectly prepared, my husband had the special Wagyu beef and it was divine. Chocolate cake and creme brûlée for dessert to end the perfect meal. The only negative thing about the experience is trying to park. They do have valet, and we should have done it. My husband ended up parking in the garage and it took an hour to get out. I loathe I-Drive, but it is still worth going, just be prepared to either valet park or fight a crowd getting to and from the parking garage. Still worth it, it is always a memorable experience going to Charley's, unlike no other steakhouse you will ever go to.

    If you like a good steak,this place is a must!! We had the surf and turf with the ChateauBrianne!! Absulutely sumptious! We ate so much we could'not think of eating dessert..but we did! The strawberry cake was light and refreshing with fresh strawberries and fresh whipped cream! We literally waddled out of there! My kind of meal!!

    Definitely not worth the price . Have head much better seasoned and tender steak from lower end restaurants than this place offers. Ordered a ribeye and the steak was full of gristle and tough. Not impressed at all . Also order fired gator bites and they were just as tough and also soggy . The lobster tail was over cooked so much it was chewy and had to be cut w a knife . Lobster flakes apart with grace when cooked properly

    We came to Charley’s for a birthday dinner. We ordered a Ribeye, medium rare that was severely undercooked and unable to be cut through or eaten. When we expressed our concerns to the waiter about the steak being raw, he said he could have them throw it back on the grill but that was just on the “lower end” of medium rare. We were only able to eat a little under half before we couldn’t handle the raw meat.

    Service and food was great. The issue I incurred during our dining experience is that my steak that I had ordered medium came out well done. I sent it back and then received a new steak cooked rare and sent back again. I then received the steak back part rare and part medium rare. Server and management asked if I wanted to send it back again and at this point I was already annoyed and just told them It was fine because I was getting full on the sides and didn’t want to be waiting even longer and not be hungry for the steak. So I ate the parts of the steak I could and just took the parts I couldn’t home. They offered to cook the steak pieces I was taking home for me but decline. Even though that was the only disappointment of the dinner it was frustrating as they are a steak house and you spend a lot of money on their cuts to only have to trouble getting it cooked the right temp multiple times.

    Whenever we're in Orlando, we usually "blow the wad" one night for a dinner at Charley's, but this will probably be the last time. We always get the filets, since all the other steaks are so BIG (20 ounces+), and were anticipating the melt-in-your-mouth tenderness of a Charley's filet. But that's not what we got. My wife's "medium" was burnt almost too hard to cut, and my "medium rare" was totally well done, except for the very middle. We weren't going to pay that much for overdone steaks, so we told the server, who brought the manager over. She had new filets prepared, so we had to wait again. The new steaks were much better, but still hardly worth the $75 price. (The $26 credit they gave us was about a 20% discount.) We've had steaks just as good at Longhorn for a fraction of the price. I've always said that, upscale as Charley's is, you get what you pay for, but we really didn't this time. Maybe we were just expecting too much.

    This was THE worst experience we’ve ever had at Charley’s. Ever. The server was very bland and rude. So rude that it was obvious he was more attentive to the party next to us. Let’s just say it was so bad, that after he boxed our food up, he left the table tray with dirty dishes next to my husband blocking him from getting out of the booth so he had to move it himself. Very disappointed. Never will we ever sit in his section again.

    I’m so torn between this place & Ruth Chris. The smoke wood grill flavor is like no other. Everything was amazing. The Mai Tai’s are strong & out of this world. Jumbo asparagus had an amazing smoky flavor & was truly jumbo. Their garlic mashed potatoes were out of this world too. Gator bites were tender & not chewy or rubbery.
