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!

    Best lamb chop I’ve ever had. So glad I didn’t out the Chimichurri sauce on it. The seasoning was too exceptional to cover up.

    This was a disaster. We ordered medium filets and they were purple inside. The garnish on the side was expired cabbage. The lobster Mac and cheese had two claws on top with no lobster in the Mac and cheese and the noodles were over cooked. They did give us new steaks and my husband’s steak was still purple inside. I guess that is medium there. They gave us a free dessert and then they mixed our check up with another table. This is not the same restaurant we went to last year. We do not plan on going back. It was not fine dining.

    Georgie was our server she was excellent and the food was amazing. We also ordered dessert which was recommended by our server as well and what a great recommendation. Butter cake with caramel and ice cream. The lobster tail was huge and worth every penny. We also had a filet mignon that cut like butter. We will definitely return.

    Everything was fine. I find it annoying the amount of up selling they do on their sides. Also, the blue cheese for the salad was not crumbled, but a big blob.

    Friends recommended Charley's to us and we found the bar and bartenders very friendly... nice atmosphere.We had a party of 4 our wives had the 8oz Filets and enjoyed them, my son-in-law & I had the 18oz Prime N.Y. StripAnd I could barely chew it. Overall a fair experience for me,could've been just one bad cut of meat but didn't expect it from a $60.00 steak

    Everything was delicious. I would order everything again. We ordered the crab cakes, Caesar and house salad, Waygu steak and Angus ribeye with the lemon butter buerre blanc sauce, creme brulees for dessert and the watermelon cooler for my drink. Process seemed to have gone up a little since the last time we were here, but that's the same mostly everywhere. The food was worth it.

    Made reservations for special occasion and dressed up for the dinner. Disappointed to be placed away from main dining room. Very loud party nearby that were never asked to tone it down. House salad was old and soggy? The steaks were delicious but ambience was poor. Disappointed rather than pleased with the experience.

    The food was great, first time eating at a high end steak house. I knew going into it that prices would be expensive, but at least for items I am more familiar with from other places it seemed to be fairly priced for what you got. We went for our 6 year anniversary and the service was excellent and every staff member we had contact with wished us a happy anniversary. As for the food, we went all out, starting with the calamari and the gator bites. The calamari was nice and tender, the peppers too hot for me personally but good. The gator bites were amazing, the lemon flavor on them combined with the horseradish sauce they give you was a perfect pairing. We got the bacon and blue cheese added to one of our salads and omg you have to do that, the bacon is thick cut and delicious and the blue cheese was great (and more than enough for both of our salads). I was told by many friends I had to order the cedar plank cauliflower and it was delicious, but you do have to like cauliflower (the husband hates cauliflower so this delicious leftover is all mine). Husband got the mishima reserve wagyu and I got the dry aged ribeye (definitely could have split either one but we wanted to get to try both). Surprisingly, I loved the ribeye way more, and he loved the wagyu more. Got the truffle butter teriyaki with mushrooms added to the ribeye and it is amazing. Husband also got lobster tail, and personally I've had better but I've been to Boston numerous times. Definitely the best lobster I've had in FL, and he said it was the best he'd ever had. I also got both of their old fashioned's and they were both amazing, I love tequila and whiskey so the anejo old fashioned may not be for everyone but the presentation is amazing. I was also told I had to get the butter cake by friends, and the waiter recommended it as well, so we had tons of to go boxes already but ordered 2 butter cakes to go and when I got home and snuck a bite I could not stop at one bite, it was amazing.

    Charley's is easily my favorite steakhouse in Tampa! Our waiter, Fish, has served my party on numerous occasions, and his exemplary service every time makes me request him for each visit now. From the martinis, to the wine specials (the Peju cab last night was amazing!), and of course the steaks (which they cook on wood, like I do), everything is always excellent. Finished it off with a piece of butter cake (also amazing, as always!). Five hours of food and fabulous service...already looking forward to my next visit!

    Went for our anniversary and the meal started out with the wait staff being very curt and unfriendly. Once we brought out a wine bottle we wanted to drink and the corkage fee is now 50, this is a Florida restaurant not Napa. Food was ok. Steak was over cooked. Wanted better.

    Charlie’s never disappoints. Had an important dinner meeting and we could easily carry on conversation without too much noise or really any fear of people listening in. Steak was awesome, sides delicious, and the wine was on-point. Charlie’s is not a low cost night, but worth every penny.

    My king loves this restaurant at all , but it was my first time going there , so the room where we sat smelled like a humidity, my husband said nope , but for me It smelled like that. I did not understand the waiters because we order something and have to order with other waitress , because he forgot about us, The started we chose the calamari, and it was delicious, then I have a soup , one of the best soup I ever tested ! The bred was delicious, yummy and fresh. The food is excellent I chose the ribeye , is usually my favorite one, with a loaded potato,. My king chose prime steak with plain potato. My wine was delicious, I drank Cabernet Sauvignon Amiri , from Napa Valley , I usually choose Napa Valley is like a connection with many of their wine . I did not have room for the dessert, so is going to be in the next visit.
