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!

    Excellent food and service. It was very busy so the noise level was high. If you're looking for a quiet dinner experience, this isn't it. If you're like us and enjoy great food, excellent service with a party vibe, this is the place. We will visit again.

    One of our favorite places in Tampa. Only suggestion would be to only offer fresh stone crab. THey use a freezing process to be able to offer it off season and it lost all of its flavor. Given the price that is charged this was a pretty disappointing part of the meal. Still love it there overall.

    Value is not good and steak was not all that people make it out to be. Burns is way better and better selection of steak. Best thing we had on our table was the side house salad. we won't be back and a family of four was $400 just fyi

    The positive was our server Dakota; he was awesome! He was friendly, efficient and made us feel welcome! Otherwise where do I start? We hadn’t been back since before the pandemic so were really looking forward to our dinner at Charley’s. I should have read the reviews since I now see some of the same issues we had. Sadly the only decent food was the bread and the dessert! The bacon wrapped scallops were gross with the scallops slimy and gelatinous and the bacon was barely cooked; our salads were literally drowning in dressing (pools of it on the lettuce) with wilted scuzzy looking lettuce; the crab cakes had potential but apparently were grilled or smoked as that flavoring overtook the crab flavor leaving little that tasted like crab; the mushrooms and broccoli sides were ok but such massive portions that were enough to feed a family of six, way overkill and such waste. The one thing we have always loved at Charley’s is the cauliflower; it was just ok. On top of that, apparently no one checks the salt; it was totally clumped from dampness or moisture so we had to unscrew the lid, pour clumps in our hands and try to sprinkle on our food. We will never eat there again!

    Honestly, NY strips I purchase at Sam’s and grill myself are better quality cut of meat than the $60 porterhouse we were served last night. Steak was cooked correctly but was tough and chewy.

    A group of 9 of us went to Charley's to celebrate a birthday. We were generously given a private room (The Wine Room) for our party to sit and enjoy dinner. Our wait staff was very attentive in providing us refills, checking in on how we were doing, participating in some banter in our room and even got us some extras from the kitchen. One person from our party had a slightly overcooked steak and the wait staff took it back with no questions and even gave us the steak on the house due to the one guest not being able to enjoy it with the rest of us. The food is great. The head of cheesy cauliflower on a cedar plank side is to die for. The bread and salad are fresh and delicious. Our part ordered the bison, kansas city strip, NY strip, Angus Ribeye, Dry aged ribeye and filet mignon - they were all delectable. Overall, Charley's is a fantastic restaurant with fantastic staff and food. I have been coming here for special events for many years and will continue to do so for many years to come.

    My wife ordered lamb chops and I ordered a $95 ribeye--we both always order our food medium so we're very accustomed to how it should be cooked. Mine was partially burned but hers was overcooked throughout. Very disappointed in the value as for that money it is expected to be cooked properly. We mentioned it to our waiter but nothing came of it. Think we'll be heading to Burns or Meat Market from here on out.

    Food was over-priced for the quality, the steak did not have much flavor. There were no appetizers that did not include seafood (allergic). The alcoholic drinks were great, but almost $20/drink.
