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!

    Truly, one of the best Dining experiences of my life on Saturday April 13, 2024. Everything was phenomenal, from the 12 ounce fillet, to the ribeye, lobster mac & cheese side, asparagus with hollandaise sauce, all following our crabcakes and seared scallops appetizers and pre-dinner smoked Old-fashion cocktails at the high-energy and friendly, welcoming bar . The wine recommendation from our server Vanessa was on point, as was her impeccable service and cheerful and friendly personality. She went out of her way to get information for us from the Manager regarding the new location opening in 2025. Speaking of the manager, Dara Kim, he approached our table following the meal to introduce himself, leave his business card, and to thank us for coming. He’s an outstanding manager, and it shows in the quality of the meals and the professionalism of the servers, among other things. The giant brownie with ice cream dessert he sent to our table on the house cannot be adequately described with words that will do it justice. We look forward to seeing Dara and Vanessa again as we plan on dining at the current old-school location many times before the move to the new location. Cheers to Charley’s and the staff!

    We always enjoy our night out at Charley"s The food is outstanding . We usually get the filet mignon with the 18 ounce lobster tail! So good! All the sides are delicious but our favorite is the loaded baked potato. And of course Charley's blue cheese martini. Our server Stephanie is the best. She always has enough time for us and explains what is going on that night. Besides the great food having Stephanie as our server is the next best. This is a great place for a special occasion or just a saturday night out

    Food was absolutely delicious. However, service was very slow. We got there at 7pm and there was a large party next to us that took a lot of the waitresses time and attention, so we did not get to order our food until almost 8pm. My steak was also very rare when I ordered medium, but they tended to that issue quickly! It was also mine and my fiancés birthday and we did not get the birthday ice cream while every table around us did.

    We were there for a birthday celebration at table 30 at 645 and were seated right away and our server was very attentive and went above be and beyond. The manager came around several to check on our experience and offered up some complimentary appetizers regarding the birthday We were disappointed that the fondu mushrooms were omitted from the menu They were delicious Also, the cauliflower seemed like a smaller portion than in the past

    We felt that the steak had too much hard gristle in it. We picked a ribeye and in the past it had been exceptional . We enjoyed our time and meal but it wasn’t up to the standards as in the past.

    Our first time at Charley's. A wonderful experience. Adonis, our server was amazing! Attentive, knowledgeable and funny. The "famous" old fashion was average but the wine was great! My filet may have been the best I've ever had. Unfortunately my wife's ribeye was too charred and too rare for medium rare so it went back. They made it right by taking it off the bill and treating us to a delicious butter cake, Wow!! It's understood why they're one of the best in the country. Looking forward to going back.

    Food is excellent. Our server needed to be better attentive to our table. I really don't care for server's opinions on what to eat, because it's their favorite. If I need to know that, then I would ask. I noticed that several of the wait staff chose to tell their customers what their favorite dishes are. I wonder if they are directed to do so by the manager. We got there at 5:30 and when the dinner crowd came in about 45 minutes later, she got busy and pretty much forgot about us. She did look over at our table several times while waiting on the others. Several other wait staff and management even came by and not one picked up our finished plates. We waited 10+ minutes for our waitress to come by to see if we were interested in ordering dessert, without a tray to take our dirty plates. Then she came back with the tray. I was disappointed that the only dessert that is made in house is the creme brulee. There are several other dessert items to choose from, but in my opinion a restaurant that has such a wonderful dinner menu, dessert should be made in house as well. The waitress mentioned the desserts are made at a local bakery in Tampa. That's great, but I want something that I can't purchase outside of the restaurant. Overall, I feel I would rather spend my money at a different restaurant. If I really wanted to have a Harris Ranch steak, which is what is served here, I would go back, but I would definitely ask for a different waiter.

    The four of us chose Charley’s to celebrate a birthday in our group, everything was wonderful. There are only a few things I wish would’ve been better/different. - our server seemed a tad overwhelmed, he was very nice though.. - there was an extremely loud and obnoxious group of men placed in the same small room as us. I had a hard time hearing myself a few times. - our butter for the lobster was super cold for the lobster, even with the candle underneath lit..

    Went down to Tampa for big smoke event. Last minute reservations at Charley’s first night was the best way we started our weekend. Service was great. Food was 10/10 especially the Stone crab claws. Everyone in the party was very happy after dinner. Definitely will come back next time in Tampa.

    Lovely restaurant and nice people. Went there for a birthday. Lots of fuss and special attention . Surprisingly the seafood look fantastic. Crab cakes were wonderful. Dry aged steak massive disappointment. Filet great but could get great for much less cost. Servings very large like double meals. Sides were bland. Salad a disappointment. Bread was pizza dough. We had a gift certificate that barely covered the tip.500$ dinner for two🤣

    We have dined at Charley’s several times over the last few years- always having a great meal. We were very disappointed this trip. The steak was no where near as good as the previous visits. Had so much fat and the taste was off compared to previous experiences. The sea bass was thin, soggy and grainy. Not the thick tasty, chunky sea bass that you can get at Sam’s Club. The au gratin potatoes tasted just like the cheesy potato’s you get at GFS. They were very gracious as it was our Anniversary - they brought a special appetizer and followed up dinner with a nice dessert. Just not the quality meal we were hoping for for $400.🥴

    Charley’s steak house was fine. However, for the $265 bill it made it less than fine. The service was amazing but my filet was stringy in places. The snapper was good but not great. My wife and I shared mashed potatoes and it could have fed four people. I asked to split an order of mushrooms as my wife doesn’t like them. I was told they could not do that so I ended up spending $16 on side order of mushrooms for my steak. I had two beers and my wife had one cocktail. As I said for $264 I would have expected more. Too many other better options for that kind of money for two people’s dinner.
