We were treated so well that we planned right away to return soon...and we did! The beef is outstanding. The atmosphere is really cozy. Great service too.

I think I visited the Charcoal Steakhouse for the first time in 1980. The fact that it's still going strong 34 years later says it all. The prime rib is outstanding and the service is always good. Definitely make reservations.

Been here many times & it's consistent...excellent! When you order steak they ask you to cut it before the server leaves the table. Been there many times. Always constantly excellent. Great food, great service and nice ambiance. Not my first time and not my last by a long shot.

I eat here often, and we have had many business lunches here, including business meetings in their private dining room. We have never had a bad meal or a bad experience. Their steaks are best quality - I recommend rare or medium rare; their soups and salads are as good as you will find anywhere; and, of course, one needs... More

I've dined here for lunch with co-workers three times over the last year. All three times I was disappointed in the food. Ahi Tuna was tasteless on the first visit, a salad the second time lacked flavour and was a very small serving for a main dish - both items are no longer on the menu. Yesterday I chose the... More

Was here last night with family members (4 in total). Didn't have a reservation but seating wasn't a problem on a Tuesday night. A little over-priced but the food was, for the most, exactly what I would expect from a better than average wteakhoue. Beef noodle soup, ceasar salad and scallop appetizers were all excellent. Hubby's flat-iron steak and my... More
