About Charley's Steak House I-DRIVE

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!

Wow, what a disappointment. My owner and GM had raved about this place for the last 4 years every time we went to Ruths and how Charleys was going to blow me away. Needles to say they bit their tongue and apologized for the disaster we had there. They had been repeat customers throughout the years and I was 1st timer.\n\nWe went at 7pm on a Sunday evening. Not crowded. Bar scene was nice. Good vibe to the restaurant. While the waiter, Eric, did a nice job a presenting the steak choices and wines, he failed to provide any kind of service or remorse for the main course being a fail.\n\nStarted with the Steak Tar Tar, Seared Tuna and Escargot. All of which were great. We simply pointed out that we needed some more toast for our Tar Tar. 'It would be nice if we had some more toast for our Tar Tar' and waiters response was ' I know right?' Really, you would think he would catch on and bring some more. Nope. Everything else about the appetizers was great. But you don't go for the appetizers, you go for the steaks.\n\nThere was about an hour gap between the time we finished our appetizers and received our steaks. We continuously pointed out that it was taking an extremely long time. Eric didn't seem to care and did nothing to smooth it over with more of his 'I know right' comments. Really, he did this with remark we made. After receiving our meals, my owner received the Fabulous Filet Med Well which was literally burnt, my GM had the Ribeye Med which came out rare and my other co worker had the 12OZ Filet med that came out rare. My ribeye was actually cooked properly but lacked any flavor at all. We expressed with our deepest regret that the steaks were not cooked properly and Erics reply was, ' The kitchen is busy and must of been in a hurry'\nNever offered to replace, re cook or anything. I finished all of mine but the other 3 left over half of each steak on the table. We paid our $400 bill and walked away knowing we will not be back or recommend any others go there again.

If I could give this place 6 stars, I would! Our server, Matthew, was incredible and the food was perfect. Our steaks were outstanding, sides were excellent. My 9 year old had the shrimp and they were delicious. It was my husbands birthday and Matthew had the cake plate decorated with 'happy birthday' when he brought our dessert. You simply don't find places like this any more. If you are in Orlando, you MUST eat here!!!!!

We have been to Charley's numerous times before and our food was always excellent. This last time we went the food was fair at best. They brought my husband the wrong steak and when they brought him the correct one it was raw. My daughter asked for a blue cheese crust on her filet and they simply cut the filet open and put blue cheese in the middle that did not melt. The crab legs I had were not fresh and rubbery. As for service, it took forever to get refills on drinks and there was no offer of even a free appetizer for all of the errors. The ambience is very dated and old not reflecting the elegance it used to. The cost was very expensive, as it should be for a fine steakhouse experience but this wasn't. We will not be going back anytime soon.

While everything was good, I've had much better. Steaks were ordered medium and medium rare and all came out medium rare. Chocolate cake was not good at all, creme brûlée presentation was great and tasted great. I did not know the salad was going to come with a blue cheese type dressing (I don't like blue cheese). Bread was excellent. Cheddar mashed potatoes very good, sautéed onions and asparagus were not good.

Fantastic steak, it deserves 4 almost 5 stars alone!\nBUT:\n-The salad was boring and not worth eating.\n-The baked potato and the french fries was also very bad (dry/overcooked).\n-No sauces were offered.\n-Room was very cold, way to much! (I felt like I was the meat hanging up in the fridge).\n\nAll-in-all 3 stars purely because of the VERY good steak.

Salad was watery, no flavor. I had the strip and it had too much fat. My husband had the porterhouse and there were like three bones in the meat and alot of fat, flavor was good. The bread was amazing, i think it was the only thing i enjoyed the most and my spiked basil lemonade drink!! Ive heard the Charley's on 192 is way better.

We had an 8pm reservation and it took just a little longer, but we understood why after. The food is amazing, the deserts are to die For, and the service is great. I WISH I would've understood the pricing on the steaks a little more or the prices being next to each steak so we know what to pick correctly.. becuase my wife was a little confused on her order when she got the steak it was what she ordered but not what she really wanted.. I confused us ,she got a$74.00 dollar ribeye when she got it ,it wasn't the one she thought she'd select but kept it anyway, although it was cooked to get liking (medium). but it was burnt on the outside so she only eat a couple of pieces because we hate to return stuff back..

Every time I come to Orlando I think about going to Charlie steakhouse. Now if your idea of a meal is some kind of organic grain health food vegetarian gluten-free fare stop reading right here. However if you want to genuine prime steak cooked on a woodfired Grill the size of a pick up truck you can't beat Charlie's. The place is elegant with wood paneling and oil paintings like a whole time steakhouse should be. Our server Jane was Pleasant and attentive. Apple crumb pie desert rounded it all off. And the prices are less than I pay at Emerils back home

We all visited the establishment with 14 people and were VERY disappointed.\nFirst the server told us the seafood platter is $39/per person and he said two people is enough as appetizer for the three of us at one end of the table. Then when the check came he charged us $259??? He said he never said that and four of us heard that, we all said we heard you.\n\nThen three of our meals were not cooked properly. I was the host and ordered a filet 8 oz medium. it arrived raw, and I asked for medium, and then 8 minutes later? It arrived well done??? And i was the host paying the bill and had NO dinner. My wife sent back her meal as it also was not cooked well at all. My regional sales manager received beef tartare that had veins and nerves showing, also sent back. Needless to say we were MOST disgusted and VERY disappointed. Then to make it really awful they added 22% gratuity??? This is UNACCEPTABLE.\n\nWe will never return to this establishment. I was so embarrassed for my clients.\nthe management did not want to hear anything we said or asked.\nTERRIBLE RESTAURANT.

Wow was dinner a disappointment. Lots of issues...one steak overcooked, forgot the creamed kale, had to ask multiple times for another round, beer bottles routinely sat on the table empty, requested water- never refilled. Server was MIA half the night, obviously busy with other tables. Steak was good but not amazing. I thought this was the best, most famous steak house in town but clearly they have gotten complacent. We spent a lot of money there and I would not go back. Very disappointing client dinner!

We love the Charley's in Tampa, but this one feels very old overall, especially when compared to the competitors (Del Friscos, Capital Grill, etc). \n\nVibe:\nwelcome back to the 70s...uncomfortable chairs at old tables. Feels a bit like a Fridays. The place was dead when we go there at 7:30 on a Thursday night. \n\nService:\nThe hostesses were relatively friendly and greeted us on entry. They did leave us standing around doing nothing for 15 minutes before seating us in a completely empty restaurant. Our waiter was attentive, but then he got another big top and completely blew us off. He started by greeting us quickly and explaining the menu, which was good. He was attentive in refilling our drinks, but actually never asked me if I wanted more wine. After the big top came, it was obvious we were no longer important. He didn't even drop off our check and had someone else do it. Good start, poor finish.\n\nFood: \nThey give you salad (lots of olives) and cheese bread with your meal, which were decent. The steak was grilled over Mesquite, which added a nice smoky flavor. My son's was a little charred on the outside, compared to the normal steakhouse. The sides are huge! My son got the fries, which were giant potato slices (he hated them). We got the steamed broccoli, which was actually a bit overcooked, but still decent. I had the stone crab claws, which were a little fishy and didn't agree with me later if you know what I mean. Never got a chance to get desert as the waiter never came back. \n\nWine: \nThe wine list is pretty standard overall with the 3X markup. Nothing impressive like Del Frisco's. The wine by the glass options are pitiful. The glass he brought me originally was from a bottle that had been open too long so had the oxidized taste. \n\nOverall:\nThe Tampa site is actually still one of my favorite places, but frankly for the money I will not be back to this one. It feels like the place time forgot...

For the past five years, a few friends have made it an annual dinner event to eat at this restaurant. We have loved everything about it from the food, the ambiance, the wine and the service. I don't know what happened this year but they have changed the food, not necessarily what is written on the menu, but how it is prepared and the ingredients. The lobster bisque doesn't have lobster in it anymore, rather pieces of toasted swordfish! The house salad was wilted, the sides were not cooked consistent (one over cooked and one undercooked) and the steaks were not the aged melt in your mouth gems of years past. Our entire party was horribly disappointed. On a good note, the escargot was delicious as was the wine. The manager did comp the meals but the experience will be remembered long after. There are hundreds of places to dine on I-drive. Time for this patron to try another next year.

We started out with a Spiked Strawberry Lemonade for my wife; and, a Bourbon Flight for me. The lemonade was light and refreshing. The Bourbon flight was served with three excellent pairings of a blue cheese wedge along with orange blossom honey, steakhouse bacon and, the best of the lot, tuna sashimi which paired unbelievably well with the Woodford Reserve. My favorite, unbelievably for me, was the Jack Daniels... it was incredible. My wife had the bacon-wrapped scallops for her starter, which were out of this world!\n\nFor wine with dinner, we splurged on the Kestral Old Vines Merlot, from 2002. It was moderately priced; and, very unique; and, very very tasty! \n\nMy wife ordered the 8 ounce chef's feature, which was a Filet de Mignon, topped with Crab Meat and a foie gras beurre noir. She loved it! I had the 24 ounce Porterhouse, which is unusual for me, as I am more of a ribeye person... it was the BEST porterhouse I have ever had. \n\nTo go along with our steak, we chose the Creamed Kale, which was okay; but, had too much butter. Our plans included dessert, to finish our wine! We split the Chocolate Cake, which is covered in orange-infused dark chocolate icing; and, topped with chocolate bits... it paired very well with the wine.\n\nErleen was a terrific server; providing the best service; and, making meaningful suggestions. Nabil, was an exceptional bus person; and, he even helped deliver dessert menus and to-go boxes, while making sure our table was cleaned as we completed each course.\n\nThe only 'hitch' in the whole evening was the change in the location of the valet stand, so we were facing the wrong way when we came in from Universal Blvd.\n\nI truly believe that Charley's Steak House is the epitome of steak anywhere.

An admittedly expensive place where you truly get what you pay for. Dinner starts with salad with an absolutely fabulous house dressing, and plenty of delicious home-baked garlic bread. Most of the steaks are simply huge; since this was the last night of a short getaway, we couldn't take anything home, so we each had the 8-ounce filet, which were cooked as ordered and melt-in-your-mouth tender. One side order of bacon/cheddar mashed potatoes (also terrific) was enough for the two of us.\nThis is a great upscale place for special occasions.

The main problem with our experience was the fact that we weren't seated for over an hour past our reservation time. What good is a reservation if you can't honor it in time? There was little in the way of apologies, no comped drink or adjustment to our bill. The food was ok. Not great.

Steaks were not up to top steak house standards. Too thin and therefore could not cook properly. Had to send back fried calamari- it was mushy and very unappetizing. Waiter was either inattentive or overwhelmed. Seemed inexperienced. Another waiter tried to help but she too was frustrated and overwhelmed. Inordinate wait for dinner.

We ate at Charley's Steak House about ten years ago when visiting Orlando. It was outstanding. Therefore, when we were again in Orlando last week, I made reservations. The food was excellent. However, the service was very poor. I think our waitress might have been in training or new, but the service was very slow, and she had to apologize every time when coming to the table. Also, the dress is business casual. We packed an extra outfit just for the occasion and to honor the dress code. Numerous diners were in t-shirts, shorts, and flip-flops. I understand that Orlando is a popular tourist destination, but a dress code is a dress code and when I pay $250 for a nice meal for three, I do not want to look around and see hairy legs, feet, and beer-themed t-shirts. Again, the food was excellent, but everything else was unacceptable for a restaurant claiming such a high status. I won't be eating there again and certainly will not recommend it to a friend.

Family of 4 we decided to pick Charley's to celebrate our New Year's. Being a first timer, we did not know what to expect. Start off great with complimentary valet parking. Nice atmosphere inside. Greeters were professional and courteous. Proceeding to our high top table, a little hard to get on for my 2 boys and I (skirt on) but hostess helped us. Server came within a minute to pass menu and ask if we want to start off with some water. Servers gave us menu guide and suggested wine and food. Got the Escargot and Portabella Mushroom Fondue (must get for Mushroom lovers), yummy! Then we got some side cheese bread and side salad (hot and fresh). We ordered the Surf and Turf (50 oz Porterhouse steak and 1lb lobster tail) , Mixed Grill (2 type boiled fish and shrimps/scallops scampi), and Lobster Mac & Cheese to split us 4. It was so good and so big. We had to take some togo. Servers kept checking on us that everything is good. Drinks were never empty. Dessert we got the creme brûlée and some coffees. Overall, it was a great experience with great food and great service. This is coming from a fellow server. Thank you Seth (our server). We'll see you soon.

This Charley's location is outstanding! I was introduced to Charley's Steakhouse a few years ago during a trip to Orlando with friends. Since then, any trip to Orlando must include a visit to Charley's. As far as steakhouses go, they offer good service, great tasting steaks and sides, and affordable prices. They even allow you to bring your own bottles of wine, which they uncork for a reasonable $15.00.\n\nThe location is right on I-drive (near Ripley's Believe It or Not) in a shopping center that offers other activities, such as bowling and even a rum bar (if you are interested in a nightcap). The décor is warm and filled with dark woods, in true steakhouse fashion. The setting is intimate and it is usually nice and quiet although there are patrons sitting all around.\n\nOn our most recent visit, we (party of two) decided to share the 24 oz. bone-in angus steak (medium) with an order of truffle butter and a side of the steak bacon and cheddar cheese mashed potatoes. Yummyyyyyyy! Each tender piece was seasoned to perfection and the truffle butter gave it an extra 'wow' touch. It was definitely a party of flavors in my mouth. I truly thought that I was going to be unable to finish my piece of steak and the mashed potatoes, but it was all so delicious that I kept at it to the very end.\n\nDessert was also a major treat! We went with the caramel cheesecake with caramel/sea salt topping. For enthusiasts of all things sweet - this is a must try. For those who are not big fans of sweets, and more specifically, cheesecake, I encourage you to give it a go, as it did not taste like a typical cheesecake. It was not very 'cream cheesy', but rather, really highlighted the caramel flavors from the filling and topping. My mouth is watering as I write this review and relive the delicious moments.\n\nThank you Charley's for another great experience! I cannot wait to visit again!

Especially our Server/Waiter Daniel was the worst service I have ever had and for the price of each plate you would think the server be more polite. \nI paid $40 for an 8oz filet mignon that i wanted cooked to medium rare. I love my meat rare and chewy and it was more medium then rare than I personally did not like.\nI asked if another could be made and his response is, 'No it is rare. If I take it back I am just going to bring you back the exact same thing. Do I still want another?' \nIt ruined the evening for me and he had to bring a manager who did help and bring me the steak as I preferred.\nHe also seemeed to favor serving my boyfriend than me but I was paying and he did not get a tip. \nI would not refer this place to anyone just based on the service and overpriced food.

When reserving a time via Open Table, you expect a table to be available upon arrival. There should be no reason for waiting beyond your reserved time. I specifically noted to have a table not a booth. The restaurant told me the reason for waiting was that a table was not available. Upon being shown to our seats, there were plenty of tables available and not being used. So why were we seated 15 minutes after our reserved time? This was very disappointing as this defeats the purpose of using Open Table.

This was our first time going here and we were very excited... the place looked great and when we walked in it looked even better. We were promptly greated and then it all starts going down hill... the waiter came and took our drink order and one guest only wanted lemon for her water ( a simple request) after asking 3 times and 15 min she finally got lemon... we honestly should have left right then and there but we decided we are here and lets give it a go... after another 15 min the waiter comes over with a tray of steaks and gives the rundown of each. There were three of us and we all ordered ribeyes, 1 rare and two med rare. After 45 min our steaks finally come. The rare was cooked perfect and was ok... however the 2 med rare were so overcooked it was incredible.... so we sat around waiting for anybody to come around which they did not and we all just decided to start eating... well in simplest terms the steaks were horrible... there was so much grizzle on these steaks. After quite some time we finally see our waiter and complain about the steaks... another 20 mins pass and the manager comes and offers us a free drink. (Not that they would take the waste of a steak of the bill but a drink). Needless to say after 2 hours of this hellish nightmare off a meal we were done and had to use the restroom. Well before we could even get there, the stench of sewer smacked us in the face... all in all $250 for close to the worst meal off my life is not acceptable and i highly recommend going elsewhere to anybody thinking off attending this dump.

Steaks were properly cut and perfectly cooked and it was a pleasant surprise to find 'Pittsburgh Style' an option! \n\nCharlie's includes a generous salad with entrees making it an exceptionally good value. \n\nAlong with the expected appetizers and sides are several finds. We enjoyed the best escargot we've had in years and tartar is also on the menu. The standard lobster mac & cheese is reimagined into a huge slice of baked mac & cheese loaf with several steamed lobster claws draped on top - yummy.

First time at Charley's .A nice old school steak deco. Good cocktails and wine list. Apps and salad was good. The steak which I was looking forward to was a disappointment. They do a smoke technique to when cooking and I found the flavor not appealing. Steak was not very flavorful and could have been more tender. If I go back I would not get the recommended smoke flavor. It can get pricey.

I've been to Charley's 7-10 times and it's always been great, except for this time. The service was excellent, the room is very nice but both of our meals were sub par for even a mid level steak house sand Charley's is not mid level, it's always been one of the best. I had the bone-in strip ordered medium rare and it was dry and poorly butchered, my friend had the filet ordered medium and it was also thin and dry. Also, there was a much smokier flavor to the meat than usual. One of the eat things about Charley's has always been the citrus wood they use to heat the grill which adds a very subtle flavor. This time it was overpowering. It was as if they had added a liquid smoke type of product to flavor the steaks and it did not work at all. As I said earlier this was not at all like my prior experiences at Charley's. I hesitated in writing this review but I decided to because if this is the new normal there, it is a bad direction. I will give Charley's another chance for sure but only one. There are just too many good steak houses these days to stick with one that doesn't deliver. I'm hopeful that this was an anomaly.

First, server was great (though we could tell she was slammed- she handled it well). Meal itself was merely okay. For a classic steakhouse experience w/ 2 kids in tow, I thought Charley's on IDrive would be a perfect compromise- classic steakhouse, but kid-friendly, given the location. I was correct- they were great w/the kids and was surprised they even had crayons, etc and a well-priced kids menu. So far so great. Salads were fine, as were 2 of 3 meals ordered. Delicious. Not mind-blowing, but good. Then thre was meal 3. For my son and I to share, I ordered the 'house specialty' 20oz filet. Requested Med to Med Well (as recommended by server, so I could share the more well sides with my 8 year old). Unfortunately, the meat arrived bleeding- rare to mid-rare. The asst server sliced into the steak first horizontally, then vertically in two spots (it now resembled a bloody rubics cube). Clearly, it was way under- so they offered to refire the now mangled steak. Next, the manager delivered the refired steak looking like a rubiks cube made of charcoal briquettes. I cut into it and I will admit it was perfect on the inside, if unappetizing to look at, and for a 70+ cut of meat that is the 'house specialty' it is fair to expect more. I told him so. The manager was kind and offered to make a whole new steak- but by this time we were starving (everyone else had long since finished their meals, which had arrived correctly prepared)- so we opted to just take the refired steak. It was good- or I was hungry- not sure which. But given the condition of the meat after being diced and then refired, they took a great quality steak and turned it into something no better than your local chain steakhouse (OB orLH, for example). Meh. Disappointing. The manager took the steak off our tab (despite my protests- I did after all eat it) , but it just should never have been brought out to me in that condition (neither under, nor hacked/refired) in the 1st place.

We booked a table at this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. Our first impression was slightly disappointing since our reservation was made for 7:30, we arrived at 7:28 and then stood in a very crowded lobby for 25 minutes waiting to be seated....there were many people walking in without a reservation, however I do believe we were given priority over the walk-ins and did receive a nice apology for the delay. We were surprised to see that, in spite of an elegant atmosphere and valet parking, many other patrons were walking in wearing shorts, tennis shoes etc...and I don't mean nice 'dress' shorts, I mean straight from the park board shorts. Either they do not have, or simply choose to not enforce, a dress code. \nNow on the the 'pros' our steak was delicious ( go for the filet!!) and the service was very good. I would also highly recommend the mushrooms and asparagus as side items. The food was prepared quickly and exactly as ordered and everybody at the table was very pleased with their meal. The tab for the four of us was about $200(excluding the drinks) certainly what I would expect to pay for a delicious celebratory dinner... I just didn't expect to be eating it while seated in a table next to a fellow diner wearing a tank top. All in all I would recommend this restaurant to a friend.

We went for my husband's birthday. He enjoys cooking steaks at home, but for his birthday he wanted to enjoy one and have someone make it for him. We used to like coming to Charlie's, so we made the little trip again. We order the Angus bone-in Ribeye and we were taken back by how tough the meat was. We preffer the plain juices of the steak, but a truffle butter ,that we did not order, was put on it and made the steak taste weird. I'm not sure if the restaurant has changed the meats, but it was very disappointing. The waiter was nice and apologized, but didn't offer any discounts or dessert for the inconvenience, which I found very discouraging. Everything else, the salad, the bread and the sides were ok. The crab stuffed shrimp was the best thing we had all night. Because of the price and the distance, we don't think we will coming back, it doesn't seem worth it.

My boyfriend & I are both foodies and love steakhouses so I decided his birthday would be a great time to try out this restaurant. Our reservation was for 8:45. My boyfriend arrived around 8:35. I made the reservations via OpenTable and even added a message saying it was his birthday. They would not seat him until I arrived. When I arrived around 8:40, they said they needed to 'check' to see if our booth was available. There were 3 hostesses standing at the check in table and they wouldn't seat us until the other host got off the phone and pulled the table number from the printer so we weren't seated until around 8:55. This perplexed us & ticked off my boyfriend a little bit. Once seated, we waited for our waiter. He seemed to be struggling to keep up with his tables. He finally came around & we put in an appetizer & he said he would be right back to show us the steak presentation. Our appetizer arrived before he did the steak presentation. We ordered the lobster mac & cheese for our app & it was a oily room temp block of mac & cheese with a couple salty clumps of lobster on top. Salad and bread took a while to be brought to the table and oddly while we ate our salad the waiter asked us if we would like him to put our entree order in.. not sure why he waited since we already ordered. The manager brought out a comp sample of the lobster bisque and said Happy Birthday which I thought was nice. My steak was cold when it arrived but it was getting late so I didn't complain. I ordered the filet mignon and it was cooked nicely, but it did taste like it had an artificial smoke flavor. My boyfriend ordered a porterhouse which he barely touched, he also commented on the artificial smoke flavor. I thought maybe they would sing happy birthday or bring a dessert for him but that didnt happen which was disappointing. All in all, definitely not worth the $170 we spent for two meals. I don't mind the money as long as the food and service reflect it and sadly Charley's did not.

I tend to eat a local family owned places rather than large chains. My wife and I decided on Charley's over several other high end steak and seafood chains in the area. Our assessment? Charley must have made his money back in the 80s and 90s and is now 'out fishing'. I say this because of the number trophy fish on the walls and how poor the service was the night we ate there. The service was slow, unprofessional and at times down right rude. The couple next to us waited an hour and 45 minutes for their steaks to arrive. They finally gave up and paid for their wine and salads and left. From the time we finished our salads to the time our steaks arrive was ~45 minutes. I'm not going to lie, our steak was good. We had the 50oz Porterhouse but for the price, don't waste your time. Go to Fogo De Chao, Ocean Prime or Mortons (all within walking distance from Charley's. Similar prices, food just as good or better and much, much better service.

This restaurant says that you're in for a great dinner even before you sit down. Choose from about 1,000 wines for starters.

For nearly 10 year's Charley's was the place I always went for special occasions. The first few times we visited the I-drive location, the quality was on par with the original OBT location, even if a bit fancier. I returned this weekend (10/16/2016) for a birthday celebration and was highly disappointed. The quality of the food has decreased significantly since my last visit about 8 months ago. What we ordered:\nLobster Mac-N-Cheese: This was basically a large hunk of Mac-n-Cheese with bits of lobster on top. There was no lobster mixed in. As mac-n-cheese it was just OK, but definitely not what I expected.\nBroccoli: This was just meh, slightly undercooked (and I like my steamed broccoli very firm) and with no real flavor. Simply bland.\nAu Gratin Potatoes: This used to be a favorite. Not now. They have changed it recently. The potatoes are just chunked up bits, instead of the thin slices that EVERYONE expects with au gratin potatoes. The topping is corn flakes (!!!!!) instead of the bread crumbs. \nSteak (KC Strip and T-Bone): The steaks are what you (used) to come to Charley's for. It is obvious that they have changed suppliers or decided to go with a lower quality steak. This was not prime quality meat. Both cuts were tough and gristly with no effort made to trim the fat caps. The smokiness was there, but tasted like it was from a bottle instead of from the wood-fired grill. \nThe atmosphere was nice (looks as if they have done some recent remodeling). The service was Ok. I felt like I was being 'up-sold' with everything I ordered. Almost aggressively so. It wasn't just this waiter, as I could overhear other waiters doing the same. The 'sales pitch' of the specials seemed like it took forever, and we even declined the presentation of the cuts. \nIt seems like another restaurant has fallen victim to 'tourist disease' --overcharge for below quality food because the customer likely won't return anyway. I really hope this isn't the case.

My husband's steak was rare when he ordered it medium and mine was overcooked on the outside and tasted burnt. The manager took care of us but the meal was ruined. We will still give them another try in the near future.

Even with a reservation and plenty of tables, they make you wait for a table, and I find that frustrating. Also, the Charley's that closed on OBT included a side and now everything is a la carte and over priced. However, it is a nice romantic atmosphere, the food is delicious and we had an excellent and attentive server.

Same as Ruth's Chris which is always excellent as was Charley's. My husband and I split the 20 oz. filet mignon (we both like ours medium so it was halved at the table - they did not recommend splitting before cooking). We split our salad and wonderful au gratin potatoes, mushrooms, and onions. All was wonderful and we had more than enough food. We found enough room for the creme brulee which was the best I've had anywhere. Service was excellent. Price was high compared to other restaurants, but the food was at a level far above most restaurants. Saw couples with kids and there was a children's menu too. Highly recommend!

Waiter was attentive. Offered great suggestions. Didn't get irritated that my husband and I split an entree. We did order an appetizer and 2 side salads. We had the Escargot Bourgogne to start.

Our waiter was never around. My husband ordered his filet 'not butterflied' The steak was barely thicker than a Burger King hamburger. When he asked about it they said that it was not butterflied. I ordered a special which had a filet with it. I did not order mine 'not butterflied' and my steak was thicker than his. Also our waiter did not offer us all options for water. We heard every other waiter offering other option after we had ordered a bottle of sparkling water - thinking it was that or tap water. There were so many things about the night that frustrated us

Server called in to work leaving other servers short handed. This prolonged our stay in the restaurant as service was much slower then we anticipated. Server lacked on re-fills and on taking order. Server was rushed and wasn't as friendly as we watched others. Don't think it was a server issue entirely - feel it was more of a management issue not to staff well enough for even 1 call out for the day.

Great atmosphere. Be prepared to valet park on busy nights as this places shares a lot with several other busy places. Drinks and appetizers were very good. Not so much for the entree. I ordered the Porterhouse. The filet portion was good (but I've had a lot better at Shula's, Ruth's Chris, and other finer local establishments where I've traveled). As for the NY strip portion, I've actually bought better cuts of Strip at Costco. They replaced it with another filet, no questions. The second filet was good like the first, but not fantastic or anything I would want again. The filets here are cut like sirloins (thin) and not thick like the better steakhouses do. That was a disappointment, too. And they will tell you side items are large enough to share, and they usually are at other places, but not here. We ordered an asparagus side and there were 6 asparagus in the dish. Also, there were two food allergies at the table. Server was told, but had to be reminded twice during the dinner. All in all, we had a decent experience and enjoyed the atmosphere (and also going to a $$$$ steakhouse in shorts and a polo!). However, we frequent the Orlando area semi-regularly and do not plan on returning here. There are too many other places to try to spend this kind of money on dinner and hope for a better experience. Vito's is owned by the same restaurant group, so we may try that one. Or Delmonico's, on the other end of iDrive. But I think we've had our Charley's experience.

This is no longer a good restaurant. It has obviously changed hands. What a shame. Charley's was once THE place for steaks. No more. They use tenderizer to try to make a grizzly cut of meat edible. Even the side dish of 'potatoes au gratin' was terrible. Potatoes in luke warm cheese sauce topped with out-of-the-box corn flakes! Would have been funny if I wasn't paying good money.

We were disappointed in our experience. We asked for a special table for our anniversary, which I specifically asked for on the phone, but were seated in the back near the table where staff was folding napkins, etc. The server was distracted, did not even know it was our anniversary. When I said, 'Do you even know it's our anniversary?' He replied, 'Well I do now!' The steaks were half grissle so needed to be sent back. Most of the management seemed annoyed and one was not even smiling and some looked mad. There was one female manager who came to our table, and we were given a spoonful taste of lobster bisque. Then another manager said we would get a complimentary dessert. When the second steaks came they were cooked well, but tasted fair, nothing special for two $35 steaks. Another server came by and asked if we wanted dessert. We weren't sure what to say, and when we told him it was our anniversary he replied, 'Well you have to pick what you want so they know what to do.' We considered his tone to be rude and unfriendly. We did have chocolate cake and the kitchen wrote Happy Anniversary on it. All in all, it was a very disappointing experience because of the reservation not being honored with a special table, poor service, and the staff not even knowing it was our 45th anniversary. On a different note, the customers coming in were dressed in flip flops, teenagers with headphones, a child climbing on the shelf near the hostess stand, and a total lack of ambience for a such high priced restaurant. The cheese rolls were very mediocre, along with the potatoes. It was nothing like the gourmet restaurant we thought it would be, and not as good as how it is presented on the menu. The waiter was trying to push the butter for the steak to all of his tables, but not telling them it was a $7.00 up charge. We ordered drinks from the bar, and they were really good! That is my review of our experience. We definitely will not be back, and no recommendations.

Took my wife here for our anniversary. Had the fried shrimp appetizer, which was extraordinarily good. Both ordered a surf and turf special - 8oz filet, crab stuffed shrimp, mashed potatoes. I upgraded to a 12oz for $7 more. Ordered them medium. Steaks came out rare, also had to ask to make sure that I got the 12oz filet because it looked about one bite bigger then the 8oz. I don't mind my steak a little rare, but my wife only ended up eating about half of hers and leaving the center to take home. (she's not the complaining type, nor would she let me.) \n\nWith all of that said, my steak was amazing (interesting smoky flavor that was really good), the crab stuffed shrimp was excellent, even the mashed potatoes were great.

We have dined at Charley's many times and it is on our list of special places to take visiting friends and family. On this visit, my wife and I ordered the filet, 8 and 12 ounce, medium rare and medium, respectively. The steaks were not up to the standard we have come to expect from Charley's, with some toughness and more wastage than we expect from a filet. The small filet was a thin cut, especially for a medium rare order. Our guest ordered the porterhouse and appeared quite satisfied. Service was very good and the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. We are going to chalk this up to a bad night and we'll be back to Charley's again.

Had the Kansas City Strip steak. Menu says steaks are 'Prime' quality. Mine was definitely not. Tough and no marbling. Steak was trimmed of external fat. I would say it was 'Choice'. I suspect the believe their clientele does not know what a 'Prime' steak really is. We order ours from a famous Chicago butcher who sells true 'Prime' quality steaks.

I like a good steak and my Kansas City strip was a good steak. All the sides , big enough to share, were very good as well.\nThe whole experience is enjoyable.

They used to have a dress code but have sold out to the tourist dollar. Shorts, t shirts, ball caps.

We visited Charley's for our wedding anniversary because I asked a FL resident to recommend the 'best steaks in town.' Well, that was the truth! In fact, Charley's served the most delicious and succulent filets we've ever tasted. And, we also had an outstandingly sweet lobster tail and a most decadent dessert, the caramel cheesecake. (I'd come back just for that!) \nCharley's signature cheese bread also won us over! Yummmmm! And, we loved our savory appetizer, the portabella mushroom fondue.\nThe reason that I'm not rating Charley's as 'outstanding' is because our dinner salads were quite lackluster and a flavored martini (cantaloupe) was really substandard (too strong and very artificial). Our server was affable, and the manager came to check on us, which was a nice touch. The prices seemed a little over-inflated, so if we visit again, we'd probably skip some of the extras such as cocktails and 'specials,' and just order the tried-and-true filets.

Having eaten at Charley's in the past, and joining their 'club' membership, I was very disappointed with our visit for a birthday dinner reservation. Only the Maitre d wished a 'happy birthday.' When the waiter was told about the birthday, his response was only 'Oh. Good for you.' The service was extremely slow with 10-20 minutes between completing courses, and, despite being provided a wine list, having to specifically ask if we could order wine after almost 30 minutes waiting. The waiter seemed more focused on earning a lucrative gratuity from a table of eight businessmen to which he was also tending. When we indicated we were ready for our bill, the waiter did not bother clearing our plates at that time, when he delivered the bill, when he took the credit card, or when he returned with for signature. The meal was as delicious as we had expected, but the service was abysmal and prompts that we select Del Frisco's, Shula's, The Palm, Norman's, or another steakhouse for our next dining experience in Orlando. Very disappointed in being treated like a second-class citizen for a waiter who appeared more focused to getting a bigger tip. A shameful experience.\nTo top off the evening I was told about two dark stains on my light-colored slacks obtained from sitting on the uncleaned seats, providing me with a souvenir of the evening.

I have been to Charley's many times over the years when visiting Orlando on business. Their food product is great. The restaurant is starting to show wear and really needs 'paint and paper' at a bare minimum.\n\nWe had to move twice because of larger tables and noise.

As always, I truly enjoyed my visit to Orlando and Charley's Steakhouse on I-Drive. My waiter for the night was Seth...he was great!! He attended to my every need, and my food came out hot, fresh, and delicious. Initially, when I made the reservation, I was slated to have dinner with a friend. After my party of 2 turned into a party of 1, I almost canceled my reservation because I didn't know how comfortable I would be dining alone. I can say with all certainty...I'm so very glad I didn't. It was almost as if I wasn't [dining] alone. I really enjoyed my solo dining experience and that's due, in great part, to the fantastic staff at Charley's.

Or meal was exceptional from start to finish. I'm taking this opportunity to single out the appetizer of enormous fried shrimp that came out quickly and was most enjoyable. Additionally, if you are a bourbon fan, I highly recommend the house Woodford Reserve Single Barrel after dinner with the salted carmel cheesecake. Wow!

Not a good experience at all. The service lacked any spark from seating to server and management. Steak was under cooked even after a third try. Manager did not charge for my steak not the meal only the steak. He offered free desert but I turned down the offer. We live somewhat local and all we wanted was a good steak but that was not happening here. I saw others complaining but not sure why. The Valet was excellent.

I have dined at some of the best steak houses in the country; but, only recently discovered Charley’s Steak is the best! \n\nMy wife and I ordered a very nice pinot noir from Diora, moderately priced, very tasty. For an appetizer, we ordered the bacon-wrapped scallops, which were accompanied by a Jezebel sauce. This was the best presentations of scallops we have ever had.\n\nMy wife ordered the bone-in filet; and, I chose the Angus ribeye. Each was cooked perfectly, to the requested medium rare. Both were succulent, juicy; sizzling hot off the grill! \n\nTo go along with our steak, we chose the cedar plank cauliflower, which is baked, covered in an aioli and parmesan cheese, then grilled on a cedar plank. It was tender and tasty!\n\nFor dessert, I had the carrot cake; and, my wife had the creme brulee. It was a most remarkable meal.

Server did not appear for about 20 minuites! Servers also bickered about tables. Salad was tasty, but, soggie...not fresh and crisp! Bread was very good. Lamb chops were over cooked and well done...not medium well. Lamb chops also tasted like steak instead of like lamb!!! Should be cooked apart from steaks! Servers meat presentation was good; However, he left the meat tray at our table for about 20 minutes...prompting me to ask for it to be removed!!?????\nThe $74.00 steak was very good, tender, and properly cooked. \nLastly, I dressed for this occasion. I could not help but notice that a significant number of customers wore t-shirts, shorts, and other inappropriate attire. It felt like a sports bar instead of a fine or good dining establishment...which have dress code standards. \nI frequent most reputable steakhouses like Ruth Chris, Mortons, Shula's, Christi's, Smith and Wollensky, etc. \nI believe that your restaurant can and should do better!!

Have eaten here 2 other times and it was excellent. Took business clients here because of this past positive experience. Unfortunately, this one was bad. Steaks were over or under cooked. One so overcooked it was undigestible and sent back. We had to track our waiter down for everything. A staffer tried to deliver the wrong food to our table and after realizing it removed the food and apologized. My clients were disappointed in the meal as was I and I will explore other options in the future. This place needs to step back and get back into attention to the details that made them special.

This was my 5th and last trip to Charley's 'the best steakhouse in america.' The food and service continues to get worse here. I took a large group that was one of ny international reps accounts. Entrees took over an hour, management did apologize and give us a free drink. Food showed up overcooked for some and undercooked for others.

Myself and my son (14) visited Charley`s yesterday and we had high expectations because we had read that it was one of the best steakhouses in US. And I have been at some of the best in NY. The steaks was of high class, but the service sucks. I did not say anything to my son, but after 1 hour my son said: Is this good service? Our waiter was more into the football pro`s at our next table and we got nearly no attention. My son asked for a new coke and after he had finished the steak, Kansas City of size, we had to remind the waiter of the coke. He had forgotten and the football pro was only on his mind. If he had too much assigned to him he should delegated us to another waiter that was available. It was very sad because I had lifted my sons expectations and it was one of the highligt of Saturday and our trip to Orlando. Honour to the chefs (they are goooood) , but the waiter at our table was not of the standard I am used to at a dinner resturant with these credentials. Charley`s ruined our Saturday dinner experience! To whom this may concern, please fix it because the chefs deserve better!

My husband wanted to take me to Charley's to celebrate our 7th Valentine's Day together and our last before the birth of our child. He asked prior to the meal, if money was not an option would I eat there more often (I'd never been before). I advised I'd have an answer after we ate because I'm more concerned with taste than ambiance. \n\nI can say that although our bill was over $100, before the tip, I would definitely eat there again. It was the most delicious steak I've had in my life, better than Ruth Chris and other places.

This place is special and a staple in the Orlando area for 40+ years. You will probably want to come here every weekend once you visit. It is just the right combination of upscale and homey. They have several dining rooms and I felt like I was at an estate. Big roomy booths, fireplace, cellars all around. The truffle appetizer with the gorgonzola fondue is a real show-stopper. You will remember it the rest of your life. You have the option of the House salad or to order off of the menu and after ordering the Caesar and hearing my dining companion rave about the House salad, I wish I had tried it. The home fries were very good, I could not stop eating them. I tried to order one of the smaller ribeyes and it was too much meat for me: had lots left over for the roommate. The seafood mixed grill is truly amazing as are all of the desserts. This is a can't-miss menu, everything is good. We had the most eager-to-please server here and his service was exceptional.

My father and I travel to Orlando often. There has never been a visit that we didn't have dinner at Charley's on I Drive. It is a MUST for us as we have always absolutely loved the place. \n\nWe made a trip to Orlando this past Saturday and couldn't wait to have dinner there. Needless to say our experience was very disappointing. And I don't say this lightly as we have NEVER had a bad experience at this restaurant.\n\nWe started with bacon wrapped scallops which were to die for. They were absolutely the BEST part of our entire meal that evening. I highly recommend them to anyone as they were cooked to perfection.\n\nThe portions at this place are huge so my father and I split everything we eat. We have always done this and everything we ordered was always split on two plates for our convenience. Unfortunately this time I used bread plates to split our portions which seemed a little tedious considering patrons should receive 5 star service here.\n\nWe had our salad which was good and a piece of the bread which wasn't as tasty as usual. We ordered the Porterhouse and a loaded baked potato. Our dinner came out, the server split our steak for us and left to get the sour cream and butter for the potato. She forgot about us and never came back with the condiments for the potato. When we finally got her attention she left to go get the condiments and came back with an entire new potato. I was happy since our potato had gotten cold, however the 2nd potato she brought us was cold as well.\n\nOur steak left very little to be desired. There was not one ounce of juice on the plate and the steak was dry and not cooked to temperature ordered. I didn't say anything as I don't like to complain especially when someone else is picking up the bill.\n\nAfter we left my father complained about how poor our dinner was and I was relieved I wasn't the only one to feel that way. Maybe it was just an off night? But at those prices, there should never be an off night.

I've been coming to Charley's the past few years and usually was impressed with the service and food. However this time was very disappointing. It felt like their staff was ill-prepared to handle a busy evening. Despite having a reservation we had to wait 20 mins to be seated. Then once seated our server was rude (some guy named Andersen) would leave abruptly while we are asking questions about the menu. Sometimes would drop stuff on the table and leave without any courtesy. They mentioned giving a $25 gift certificate for a future visit when the meal was complete and we never got it upon receiving the check. Waited 20-30 mins for an appetizer to show up at the table. Then the food came 30-45 mins after that. The waiter continued to act as if he didn't care how he was doing in our opinion. I even had to stop my waiter to ask for water when our glasses were low. Paying the prices they have for this sub par service is inexcusable. Really disappointed with this visit especially when I've been here many times before and had good experiences. It may be a while before I consider coming back to this location because I've always liked this location but oh well. Hopefully someone will make the necessary changes to restore this restaurant's reputation. One thing is for sure, if you have a server with this name...beware.

Steak was excelent, service TERRIBLE. We made a reservation and got exactly on time, but still had to wait 30min for our table. \nOrder was served incomplete, picking up plates and serving drinks was a disaster. They dropped a salad plate partially on one of our parties head/hair, they spilled a Coke glass all over the center of the table in the middle of dinner. We order things that never came, and others that came almost ending main course.

Unfortunately our server had an attitude and treated /talked down to several in our party. This started the evening off poorly. \nOne person in our party is gluten intolerant and we asked about a gluten free menu. We were told arrogantly that the steaks were gluten free. Later that night after severe cramping and a call the following day to the restaurant we were told their seasonings for the steaks contain gluten. \nThe steaks were flavored good. All of our bad experience could have been far better if we had a sever who cared about the customer.

The sashimi tuna was fresh and a nice portion, and the lobster bisque was better than most with swordfish croutons in it. We shared a 12 oz. fillet which was cooked exactly to our specifications but it looked like it had been torn apart or something when it arrived. We ate it anyway and it tasted great with the order of mushrooms we got to go with it. The highlight of the meal however was the lobster mac and cheese, do not miss out on this dish, it is the best!

We are from Tampa so we are used to the quality of the Charley's steakhouse there. Unfortunately, I-Drive location is pretty awful in comparison. The ambiance is completely different. Feels like a dusty old Cheers restaurant rather than a sleek, high-end steakhouse. It was my husband's birthday and it was brutal. First, there was a DEAD BUG floating in his martini! Also, both the bug martini and the replacement martini were majorly under-poured. When you're getting a $15 martini, half full isn't really the expectation. Then there was a HAIR in my salad. I get it. Things happen....BUT BOTH A DEAD BUG AND A HAIR IN ONE DINING EXPERIENCE?????? Horrifying. We should have wised up and left at that point. Our steaks were both cooked poorly and after my husband insisted multiple times to the manager that he really did not want her to give us 'dessert on the house' to make up for the bug and the hair, she disregarded and brought it anyways. Our server was a sweet kid, but the overall experience was completely horrendous.

While the portabello fries and escargot were amazing, I was very disappointed in the quality of the meat. I ordered the 24oz. porterhouse and it was much smaller and thinner than my children's 20 oz t-bone. Noone wants to spend $30.00 for a steak and get a 1/2 inch steak. Come to Tallahassee and dine at Marie Livingston's and learn what real cuts of steak should look and taste like. Lunch size portion at best here. And sad part of the experience..my wife really tried to pick one of the best 'she thought' and this was our Thanksgiving Dinner.

Our entire meal was outstanding. My wife and I shared the 24 Oz tbone steak. We ordered it rare. It was cooked perfectly. If you are used to going to typical chain restaurants, be aware that Charley's Steak House will cook the steaks to what rare, medium,etc., really are supposed to be. Most chain restaurants do not know how to cook a steak in my opinion. We added the white truffle butter to the steak. Well worth it. The sides were also delicious (mashed potatoes and broccoli). The chocolate cake was good (not molten chocolate). I give it a solid 'B+'. I'm glad I ordered it. The portion was shareable.\n\nOur waiter was excellent. He was knowledgeable about all aspects of our meal. He was able to guide us to the steak that was closest to what we were looking for. He also had a solid knowledge of the wine list and was able to suggest a wine that closely matched what my wife wanted. We never had to flag him down to ask for more of anything. He made himself available at appropriate time but was not a pest. He made the meal. We felt pampered. \n\nI will definitely be back the next time we are in orlando for vacation

Ordered 2 mix drinks (mojitos) and the drinks were terrible they were way too bitter. By the time we finally were asked if we were ready to order we it must have been there for over an hour already. Super hungry since we never got to eat our appetizer since we had nothing to dip it with. My husbands steak was good but my T bone was supposed to be med well and i got it well done. I was expecting some type of steak juice on my plate by it was dry as the steak...needless to say it was a birthday dinner for my husband and definitely after paying a bill of $150 we were disappointed.

After 30+ years of dining at Charley's on International Drive, this was the first time we were a bit disappointed. We were there about 6 weeks ago, and that night we had a server who we felt was not up to the usual standards; she was very casual and just not that great. But we thought she was an anomaly. We dined at Charley's again in October. My husband very much appreciated his birthday filet, and both our dinners were excellent. Our server, who did not introduce himself, was even more casual than the server we had in August, and we just aren't used the level of disinterest we experienced. And, to top it off (literally), the best dessert ever--the Grand Marnier chocolate cake--was not so great on this past visit. When our server asked if we were enjoying it, we told him we were not and he said that recently people have been complaining about the Grand Marnier in the cake (?). Then they should not order it. If the trend at Charley's is towards very casual service and our favorite dessert of over 30 years is being redone, we need to know so we can plan accordingly in the future.

Here's a great example of trying really hard but falling short. The service is attentive but overt asked, so the net effect is flat. The presentation and menu seems promising, but a dirty menu and a poorly memorized sticht on the 'steak menu' platter' tanks the good intentions. Thick dry aged steaks-how can you go wrong? The oak and citrus wood on their custom grill imparts so much creosote flavor that the meat is ruined. \n\nI'm no fan of chains, but Capitol Grille, Mortons, Smith & Woolenskis, even Ruth's Chris are better options. \n\nSorry Charlie.

We were very disappointed with the overall experience. Made dinner reservations in advance for our visit to Orlando. With an abundance of places for dinner in Orlando, we choose Charley's Steakhouse to celebrate birthday dinner. Ordered 12 ounce fillet mignon and it was not cooked correctly. Had to send it back. Took 20 minutes for the same steak to come back out. Once it was delivered to our table the steak was cold. At this point my husband had finished his dinner. So, we did not enjoy having dinner together. To make things worst, when we received our check the $43 steak was on the bill. No adjustment was made to our check. Not even a desert was mentioned.

Charley's Steakhouse never disappoints. The aged, hand cut, steaks, cooked at 1200 degrees over an open citrus and oak wood fire, have a flavor not found anywhere else I've been, and the service is attentive but not rushed or overbearing. The server does a table side presentation of the various steak cuts they offer. They all look so good, it's hard to choose. In the past, I've also savored their Australian rock lobster tail. At over a pound, it's a filling, delicious, alternative to the meat offerings. For starters, try the seared tuna sashimi or the portobello mushroom 'fries' with fried scallions and applewood smoked bacon. You can't go wrong at Charley's.
