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!

    My boyfriend and i go to “fancier” restaurants for our anniversary every year and Charley’s was AMAZING. Such a great staff and made us feel so speak for our dinner. Our waiter was fantastic and our food was to die for. 10/10 recommended this restaurant and i would give 6 stars if i could!

    Poor management service and not accommodating. We had a party of 17 split in two separate rooms when we could all been put in one area at 5pm. Plenty of tables in both areas with other people with reservations. Also some of the food come out cold to include the $175 waygu steak. Only option given was to put the same steak back on the grill. Sad experience to say the least.

    Overall had a great night and lovely touch having the staff use my Christian name on arrival without me saying it, very attentive staff and very polite , Brittany and kellie served me and had a great laugh with Kellie I particular when I told her what beach I had been to band said it’s the worst so we both laughed. I would say I was disappointed with receiving a free salad prior to the steak arriving but being charged for bacon and cheese so misleading really and the price was really high overall but think that is Tampa in general . Food was beautiful and dessert was delicious

    I got the heritage farms Ribeye and the flavor was a bit off, especially the closer I got towards the bone - it was a bit gamey tasting for my liking. The steak also had quite a bit of gristle on it which surprised me for the reputation of Charleys and the price of the cut. Bottom line, I wouldn't recommend the Ribeye but my girlfriends Fliet was amazing! The flavor was great and the steak was very tender.

    Charley’s is going downhill fast. Three weeks in a row and each time a $20+ side dish came out cold. The table and bar servers are excellent. The chef, quality control and management are poor. If the chef can’t warm up or keep warm pre-cooked veggies then fire him/her/them. The management stood in front of me, after the fact, and adjusted my bill on the register but never apologized. After I paid, the management told the bartender to offer me a free drink. I was finished eating, paid and ready to leave and now the offer me a late constellation prize. Bascom’s and Beau and Mo’s food, quality and management are superior. Sorry Charley.

    Overall good experience. The broccoli garlic were too salty/spiced. The steak was butterflied - not clear why. Pricier than other steakhouses without really good reason. Loud- we were near the bar.

    The restaurant was nice and the service was fantastic but I’m sad to say the filet was just okay. We had the escargot and it was wonderful. The dinner salad had the best blue cheese dressing ever! The Caesar salad was good as well. But the main course, being the 12 ounce filet and the scalloped potatoes was honestly mediocre at best. I don’t think we will make a special trip over any time soon.

    Our dining room experience was exceptional. We had a wonderful waiter. The food was excellent and the ambience was perfect. Our meal for the three of us with the tip was just over $500. My only complaint is that I got there about 20 minutes early and after checking in with the hostess, I asked if I could go to the bar and get a drink and she said yes. I walked into the bar. There were two empty seats. I sat on one of the stools and ordered a drink. The bartender was very very friendly and nice. Before my drink was delivered another hostess came up and asked me if I had seated myself and if I had reservations for the bar? I was surprised because I’ve never heard of such a thing. She told me I would have to leave. I was insulted and uncomfortable. I asked her what I was supposed to do with the drink I had just paid for and she said I could sit in a little stool in the corner next to the bar or I could wait out in the lobby. Initially, I sat in the little stool in the corner and felt very uncomfortable and awkward, especially as I watched others seated in the store that I had just occupied while the store right next to. It remained empty for the better part of 10 minutes. I finally moved to the lobby area with my drink and waited for my guests. Bar seating should be first come first served and you certainly should never ask a lady to leave after she’s ordered a drink and paid for it. I mean I did check in at the hostess stand and was told I could go to the bar and get a drink. I guess I should’ve asked if I could also have a bar stool to go with my drink.
