    The food is always outstanding. Service is great even when the resturant is packed with guests. My favorite place to celebrate a special occasion or just have lunch or dinner.

    Impressive dinner and service this evening. Nathan was our server this evening and was excellent. He was on top of his game from his initial greeting to his final service. The food was temperature perfect and well seasoned. Every member of the service and management team are walking through the restaurant keeping it neat and tidy. Their attention to the tiny scraps of paper on the floor caused by the straw wrappers to keeping consumed dishes and utensils off of the dining tables was extremely well done and not intrusive. If you are looking for good food, great service, and a very clean restaurant, ask for Nathan and head to Charleston’s.

    Great dining experience, not a huge menu but varied. I always find good wine here and an interesting menu of specialty drinks. I have never had bad service here and have never felt rushed.

    The food is always 'predictable' and excellent quality! We went early for supper and arrived around 445pm. We always find the restaurant to be loud! It's especially loud if you're near the kitchen. We ended up leaving right after supper instead of relaxing, having dessert and drinks due to how loud it was. I'm not sure what can be done about this. Perhaps sound proofing tiles might help. Our waiter was excellent!

    The restaurant was pretty. The service was not great at all. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. A little overpriced for our selected options. Probably won’t eat there again.

    Celebrated my husband’s 44th and my best friend’s 34th birthdays here at Charleston’s! My family has been coming here to this location for well over a decade & absolutely love the food and service! In all these years, we’ve NEVER had a bad meal or experience! They went above & beyond last night though & had a sign posted outside welcoming our birthday party! They’re just the best!! 😊

    Charlestons, Carmel, IN is our favorite restaurant! We always enjoy the Salmon salad and Chicken salad. Service is pleasant. We had several different people tending to us which was very nice. We love sitting in a booth in the bar with the gas lamps. We will definitely return soon!

    We frequent Charlestons a lot but this particular visit was a bit sub-par. Our drinks took an awkwardly long time to come out (we had almost finished our appetizer when they did) and we were then informed they had run out of french fries. Stuff happens, I get it, but everyone at our table had ordered meals with them so that was a let down to find out so late in the game. And while I can imagine it’s tough for a server to go around and give everybody bad news and take substitute orders, there wasn’t much compassion in the way it was presented. I know that sounds super sensitive but it would take a while to explain that situation. Well, for instance, my son asked to substitute the fries for Mac and cheese. We were informed we could but that would cost extra. Call me crazy but that seems a bit out of line in that situation. We paid full price for the bill and didn’t whine but to cough up over $140 for a family meal seems excessive when we couldn’t get what we ordered and had to wait so long for drinks and refills. We’ll probably go back eventually but it was a bummer to be disappointed with one of our favorite places.

    We chose to eat in the bar area & was little noisy, but it was New Years EVE, so didn't bother us. We have eaten & enjoyed meals here for several years but this time the carrots had some spice on them that is not normal, they were too spicy yesterday. And the baked chicken had more spice on it than normal, which was unfortunate. The waiter we had was very good.

    We had amazing food and great service. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas and very festive. We had the spinach artichoke dip appetizer that was delicious! We also tried the chicken tortilla soup and it was a hit! We all enjoyed our salads and baked potatoes too. Chicken parmesan is wonderful. All portion sizes are generous - enough to split.

    This is one of my go-to restaurants in Carmel. Brought my dad and son over for dinner. Our server, Tatiana, was attentive and extremely nice. I like that they have a GF menu since my son has celiac disease, so he has several options to choose from. Great variety of delicious food on the menu. Highly recommend!

    Excellent lunch with Mom on Christmas Eve day. She loves the place and we lunch there once or twice a month. I think it’s very well managed with a good staff and the food is always excellent and remains affordable. Also, this was the coldest day of the year. A cyclone bomb blizzard. They kept the restaurant toasty warm which we really appreciated.
