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!

    Charley's Steakhouse is absolutely phenomenal in atmosphere, service, and food quality. My husband and I decided to have dinner for our wedding anniversary here, and the staff was simply amazing and accommodating. Everything was perfect and the experience was simply one of a kind.

    We’ve been Charlie’s clients for over 20 years. Always a wonderful experience! Last visit the service left a lot to be desired! In all the time we enjoy Charlie’s the service has always been super. This experience not the case. This server needs lots of training before turning her loose on customers. Our tip was very modest, which I can’t even tell you the last time we did that but can’t say this server really deserved anything.

    We ordered the dry aged bone in ribeye and the Kansas City sirloin. Both steaks were flavorful but very tough. For the price of these steaks, I would’ve expected much better quality and much more tender.

    Unfortunately two out of three steaks had to be sent back to the kitchen as they were overcooked - were supposed to be Pittsburgh med rare but were well past medium. The issue was immediately addressed but it left our other guest and I waiting for their steaks before we could eat.

    The service was outstanding. We were celebrating our anniversary and we’re in the back private dining room. I wish we were in the main room. The ambiance is more casual and fun and you can see the pit where everything is cooked. The presentation of the steak tray was great. Over all the food was just pretty ok. We shared 3 apps, the gator, the crab cakes, and the bacon wrapped scallops. The crab cakes weren’t special at all. The gator was phenomenal, and the diver scallops were pretty good. For our entree we shared the 50oz porterhouse and lobster tail. The lobster wasn’t all that sweet and it was very chewy with some in edible parts. It was a 100$ add on and not worth it. The porterhouse was overly charred which was probably because the cut is so thick. I would not recommend the 50oz cut unless you really love a heavy char. Smaller steaks would be better I think because they do not need to sit on their pit as long. Drinks were pretty good and we did not have dessert. It was our anniversary so they gave us a complimentary little sundae…it was premade and stuck in a freezer. Mostly inedible. However their dessert choices looked amazing. Over all, we have been to steakhouses that have Impressed us much more for half the cost. $460 before tip, maybe will go back sometime but there are many other options to try, and restaurants that we have already been to that we would go back to first (Flemmings)

    I really wanted this place to wow me considering it’s reputation. However, the $120 20oz filet was cooked well done when we ordered it medium rare. Had to send it back. The manager ended up making me a separate 8oz filet that was cooked great but the meat quality was so poor, it wasn’t edible. The lobster Mac n cheese a complete dry brick, also sent back. The drinks were great, the asparagus was ok. The woman’s bathroom was completely out of Toilet paper and paper towels leaving many women standing in there frustrated and confused that a restaurant as expensive and “nice” as this could have such poor management of facilities. This was a business dinner with an out of state guest and we left embarrassed and apologetic for such a disgusting and disappointing experience. The steak was about as good as long horn to put it into perspective. We will not be going back.

    Friendly yet professional. All staff, from valet to mgr, were outgoing and focused on service. Steaks were fantastic…no need for a steakknife (but they provided them). Dry aged ribeye and wagu cuts were exceptionally tender and flavorful. Perfectly cooked…as you would expect from a top tier steakhouse.

    Went to celebrate a birthday. The service was exceptional! The steaks were amazing as well. I was pleasantly surprised by the children's menu too, which offered other grilled items such as hotdogs and hamburgers. It was perfect for us all as a family. I would absolutely recommend going here for a celebration!

    We asked to have blue cheese crumbles accompany our house salads. What we received were globs of blue cheese that were similar to scoops of ice cream. We definitely did not receive "crumbles." You couldn't evenly distribute the blue cheese across the salad. You had to cut off a piece of blue cheese to add to each bite of salad. My 12 oz filet was excellent, both in meat quality and preparation. My wife's 8 oz filet was under cooked. Her "hot pink center" medium filet was more red than pink. Both steaks came with butter on top that had not completely melted when we finished the steaks. The Augratin potatoes were also lukewarm. Obviously our food had sat waiting to be delivered to us. After delivering our entrees, we never saw our server again until I was finished and my wife was almost done with her steak. Her steak would have been returned if he had ever checked back with us to see if our steaks were prepared to our satisfaction. I had to ask the server's teammate for our check after sitting for 15 minutes after we had finished our meals. The check included an extra beer "because the first beer that he received from the bar got spilled" and he had to enter a request for a second beer. The "teammate" removed both beers from the bill as a goodwill gesture. $205 before tip might be acceptable in New York for two filets (one 8 oz and one 12 oz), two sides, one beer and one glass of wine, but it won't work in Tampa when combined with inattentive service and a steak not prepared as ordered. This is our second bad experience out of our last 3 trips to Charley's, and it will be our last time there. Charley's was always our "go to" place for a special meal, but it will no longer be considered. There are too many other high caliber alternatives in Tampa to tolerate this kind of experience.

    Not the best overall experience, which is a shame. Food and Wait Staff were excellent but we were seated in the bar area and it was ridiculously loud. It wasn't "Energetic", it was stupid loud. There were groups of people standing around waiting for their table and basically shouting to each other in conversation while standing next to ours while we were attempting to dine. I requested a different table and was told that it wasn't possible. It made for a very tough dining experience for the two 88 year-olds who were with us as well as my wife and I. The A/C was absolutely frigid at 6pm (as I'm sure they were preparing for a robust Saturday night crowd they turned it way down). Our wait staff was excellent but when the "runners" brought out the food, they served the steaks to wrong seats (it happens) but this was a bit off-putting as we had to shuffle the plates around (not a big deal for me but the elderly folks had some challenges with it). Going forward, if I return to Charley's (which we have visited numerous times), I will make sure we won't be in the bar area. For a $700 meal, we didn't enjoy ourselves and will have to accept it for what it is. We very rarely write negative things about a restaurant but we had been looking forward to the evening for months and it fell well short of our usual expectations for Charley's.

Evident she was not helpful. I had a fantastic experience and the food, drinks and desert were excelente, I highly Recomended this please. If you don’t have reservations and they rejected you at front door. Think on open table. The experience is outstanding even they girl outside does not represent the quality and service of the place.
