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!

    Aged ribeye steaks were cook to perfection, but the after taste was not to my liking. It tasted like a spoiled meat aftertaste. Maybe just my tastebuds, I have had some good steaks over the world and I think I will pass on Charlies in the future. New Bourbon old fashions were awesome!!!

    Charley's Steak House is five star quality food. The prices match the quality. They use farm raised meats and everything tastes delicious in turn. Sides are large enough to feed 3-4 people: broccoli with garlic, sautéed mushrooms, and potatoes au gratin were all perfection. I was with two others who had filet mignon, and I had a double pork chop, half of which I had to take home with half of the mushrooms. Enormous well-cooked portions. Some recommendations: the wait staff shouldn't have to make a performance, it feels cheap and not authentic; the restaurant is way too dark inside, I want to see what I am eating; the seating booths are a little awkward for the back; don't let people wear shorts, it cheapens the experience; and the restaurant décor could be a bit more lavish for a restaurant of this caliber.

    It was our first visit for my nephew's 21st birthday! The food was delicious and the service was so phenomonal! They made my nephew feels special with a nice meatball appetizer and icecream sundae to go with his decadent chocphenomenal! My favorite was the butter cake dessert! Will definitely be returning for other family celebrations!

    We always enjoy a trip to Charley’s. Past experiences have been outstanding. This time they struggled a bit to hit the right steak temperatures. Everything came out rare, despite a conversation with the waiter about a preference for medium to medium well. Not a big deal they were able to put them back on the grill for a minute but they usually are perfect the first time.

    The first time we visited Charlie's and we're glad we did. The food was excellent with the exception of the house salad which seemed a cross between tired iceberg and coleslaw. Two of our party had steaks and raved about them. Others had Shrimp and Fish, and both were very good, as they should be at these prices. The service was very professional, and attentive without being intrusive. Unlike many places today the restaurant was not short-staffed and well supervised. We were meeting with friends we had not seen in some time and never felt rushed to leave. We will be back.

    Absolutely amazing from start to finish. By far my favorite restaurant so far in Tampa. I’ve been to almost all of them so far. Steak was amazing. Salmon entree and Chilean sea bass was amazing. The appetizers were amazing. Everything was perfect. Fish the server was one of the best servers I’ve had at a restaurant

    Food is amazing. I think it’s the best restaurant in Tampa in regards to food. I’d normally give it 5 stars on everything. However, their menu prices have gone up considerably. All costs have gone up but the increase seems much higher than normal and are adding that increase to profit and not solely the cost increases. Also, they need to bring back the vegetable side cooked in the cast iron

    So we came to Charleys Steakhouse in March and didn’t have the best experience however the manager addressed our issues and invited us back and I must say that I absolutely enjoyed EVERYTHING this time. Our server was amazing and all of our food was hot (bread included) and delicious! This was a Mother’s Day dinner for myself and I got the butter cake as a dessert ! PLEASE do yourself a favor and order this ! I ate this for dessert and breakfast haha ! It was so big and rich and the ice cream really just hit the spot ! I will definitely be back ! Kudos to excellent customer appreciation and thank you for making us feel welcomed ! 💓💓

    The best in Tampa by far. The food is great but the service is exceptionally amazing! I was blessed to have Delila as our server for the night and her attention to detail is impressive and very appreciated! Go there and ask to be in her section. Your entire experience will be second to none with amazing food, great conversation and superb service. Thank you Delila! Because of you we will go to one and only one steak house in Tampa! Charley’s and Delila or nothing.

    We were there for a combo Birthday & Mother's day celebration. It's been a while since I was last there, but the menu appears to still be limited - for example I got the COVID excuse for creamed spinach no longer being a menu item, which I found unusual for a steakhouse. Wait staff were excellent, but with the usual upsells along the way. Appetizers - Calamari ($21) had more sauteed hot peppers than squid and the Florida Gator Bites ($19) my kids joked that they were Chik-fil-A nuggets. I could taste the resemblance :). For entrées we settled for a Porterhouse & Lobster surf & turf - sliced family style at the table ($210). Cooked correctly, but complaints of sinue etc. I had the dry aged ribeye ($95) which was extremely charred on the outside, but was medium-rare as ordered. My daughter had a Ahi Tuna entrée ($52), and she also complained to me about it being tough - I checked it and sure enough there was a line of tough silverskin running through 50% of the portion. If I had to summarize, it wasn't a horrible experience by any stretch. First World problems for sure, but at over $600 for a dinner for 4 (pre-tip, 2 adults, 2 kids) I didn't feel that the quality of the ingredients used or preparation made us feel like it was special enough meal to command such a premium price. We left full, but a little underwhelmed at the overall value in comparison with my previous visits to Charley's.

    Loved the food , esp bread and salad to start. Little crowded when we left as many people in front lobby area and male host got a little irritated with us when we were waiting on part of our party leaving as was speaking with a gentlemen in suit (Manager?), felt like he was rushing us out the door. Food was excellent as always. We were there 2 yrs ago for our anniversary.

    Ordered med rare. First steak well done, 2nd steak raw inside burnt outside. Lamb chops were excellent Ordered porterhouse, dry aged. I’ve had a lot better at an average restaurant. Just not that good. Bacon potatoes were excellent. Overall a very expensive meal for below average steak. Always liked Charley’s better than berns, not anymore. Restaurant is dated with smelly carpeting and Needs a fresh overhaul.

    Had us in a freezing cold room. Friend ordered lobster bisque very hot. It came out warm. The $90 buffalo steak that you could supposedly cut with a knife was not that tender. Beware the Manhattan. $36! Not even that expensive in Manhattan Caesar salad was good and the appetizer portion tuna was plentiful and good.
