Cons: Some noisy areas

hostess was very friendly as were the rest of the staff. The server was great and the food was excellent. A-1 steak sauce has no use in that restaurant.

Pros: affordable, good service, good food

Cons: crowded

I'd heard of Charley's about 5 years before my first visit and it was all I talked about. Our waiter was thoroughly professional, yet still "loose" enough to make us feel at home. The food was absolutely without peer. I had the 22oz filet and it was scrumptious. Didn't eat dessert. (After a 22oz filet, who could?) The price was above average ($120 for 3 with no drinks), but well worth it for the quality of food and service.

This is the best food I ever put in my mouth. I had the surf and turf. Awesome! Worth the money.

I went here with a group of about 10, great experience. The steak (a 24 oz NY Strip) was phenomenal! They include a free salad and bread for everyone. Its very easy to work up a big bill with the add ons but the steaks are well priced.

Pros: Near Disney, Excellent Steak, Nice Waiter

Cons: Slow, Weak Salad

Having frequented at least 85% of the upscale steakhouses in North America, I can only describe my first visit to Charley's as surprisingly disappointing. Not since my last (unfortunate) foray into a used car establishment have I been so relentlessly "upsold" on every conceivable item, from potatoes to steaks, and salads to wines. Aparrantly the waitstaff sees every course as a potential deal closing, presenting increasingly expensive options in a most condescending "don't be a cheapskate" tone. Our entire party (also quite comfortable on the national steakhouse scene) was profoundly let-down by the experience. Perhaps this bit plays better to the "Disney World" crowd, and thus draws strength from negotiating with diners who have already been beat-to-death by the Magic Kingdom. We won't return.

Pros: Good beef.

Cons: Always upselling

I took my 3 teenage children to this exquisite restaraunt May, 2002 on the last night of our fabulous week long trip. From the moment we entered we were treated like royalty. The staff was extremely helpful in assisting in our wine and dinner choices. It was a PERFECT ending to our sun-filled and exciting vacation. I can't recommend it enough!!!

The wine list is incredible! The servers are knowledgeable and can recommend a great bottle of wine to compliment your meal.

Priced like an up-market steakhouse ($60 - $70 per person with drinks), it fell short of an up-market experience. The host was confused by my request for a table for one, and the server seemed disappointed at a solo diner (presuming a lesser tip?). Bar drinks took inordinately long to get given the modest crowd. The tuna sashimi appetizer was unexpected, good quality, and well portioned for its modest price. The steak was decent, but lacked the flavor and texture of proper dry aging. The steak tasted less of the menu-touted citrus wood grill than of a seasoning-salt rub. Sauteed mushrooms were good; the wedge-cut potatoes were grease-fried (as I like them) but considerably overdone. Servers do upsell but arent overly persistent.
Peter Luger in New York is my gold standard so I do a good steakhouse when I find one.
This review is for the Kissimmee (192) location.

It's plain, simple and obvious: those who've given (or plan to give) Charley's a bad review don't know what the heck they're talking about. Every time I visit the sunshine state, I go out of my way and make it a point to visit Charley's (Florida's finest and certainly one of the finest steakhouses in the US). Their cooking techniques are surely unique. The steak, cooked over a fire pit of orange wood, doesn't meet the quality standards of a Peter Luger's, Chicago Chop House, Bobby Van's or River Palm Terrace, but it's definitely fine eating. The bottom line is Florida beef doesn't have as much flavor, even though rated US Prime. The wine list is fairly priced and the side dishes / appetizers are fare. The seafood lacks, certainly the sign of a one-sided steakhouse. Go there for the boneless strip; it's the best cut in the house.

Pros: Steak, Cooking over pit

Cons: Distance From WDW, Appetizers

Steak was prepared to perfection as was potato and salad. Service was prompt and I never needed to ask for anything. They even took time to show me their ccoking techniques. Would recommend this establishment to any steak eater.

The most perfectly cooked steak I have ever eaten.
Excellent bleu cheese dressing.
Beautiful and Delicious desserts. BIGGG!!!

Should serve dinner rolls. - Baked potato was small and not perfect/ not really done . - Still - a great experience.
Good service - Unbelievable wine list.

Quity simply the best beef I've ever had. Living in Washington DC and having some top steakhouses (Morton's, Ruth Chris, Bobby Van's, Smith & Wollensky, The Prime Rib, Angelo & Maxie's, Caucus Room) to dine at, Charley's soars over most of them. With excellent martinis and wine, an attentive staff and a fabulous (and insanely cheap!) chocolate cake dessert, it just doesn't get any better. Can't wait to get back to Florida!

I have eaten at the best steakhouses in the country,
Bob's in Dallas, Gibson's in Chitown, Chi Chop house, Bones in ATL, The palm, Rainwaters. Charlies is the best steak I have ever eaten...period. Juicy not bloody, Fork Tender and full of smoked char flavor without burn taste.

Charlie's has the goods. Glad i don't have one here in NJ or I would be 400 lbs.

Aged to perfection and cooked to your specification---that's what Charley's promises. Start the evening off with Florida gator tail, lobster cappuccino or fried green tomatoes. But be sure to save room for the generous steaks, like theā€¦
