Just another ok restaurant...

I guess it's just a chain thing. The food is ok. The service is ok. The whole place is ok. I had the chicken fried steak and it was ok. I think they need to serve some vegetables with their meat and potatoes though. I'll go back, it's close to my hotel.

O'Charley's in Decatur, AL is a great place for date night or just a casual dinner. We went on a Friday night and had a more casual meal than what we usually have on Sunday after church. The tasty chili and chips and soup and salad were more than enough to fill us up. It was a very cozy atmosphere... More

Another "southern" casual restaurant chain. Basic american fare. The menu has a little bit of everything on it. It does change from time to time. The french dip sandwich is good and I recommend. If you go for Lunch, sit at the Bar. Amy will take care of you.

The girl at the hotel recommended OCharlies so we thought we would try it. It took a very long time to get our meals and the potatoes were cold. It was difficult to get our waters filled. Wait staff was not very attentive. They did bring out warmed potatoes and they were good. Overall it was very long with not... More

In the six months or so I've lived in this area, this was the worst meal out I've had, by far. I drive by this location on Beltline almost daily. More than once, I've wondered why there never seems to be many people there. Now I know, unfortunately. The vegetables were actually brown and the salmon was undercooked and over-salted.... More

You might want to pass. We arrived about 6:15 and were promptly seated since it was not busy. Our order was taken and it was about 45 minutes until we received our order. The prime rib was the right color -a dark pink, but absolutely as dry as powder. Maybe it had been freezer burned. The chicken-fried steak was too... More

We walked here from our hotel. I had read their earlier reviews so my expectations were pretty low. When we walked in the lobby there were 4 or 5 employees standing around talking. None of them stopped to seat us so we simply walked past them into the bar where we sat in a booth. It seemed like every person... More

My boyfriend and I love O' Charley's and eat there once a week EVERY week ( even though we live 30 min away ) We always get the potato soup for our meal & the cheese wedges for appetizer. Tonight we ordered the soup and it came out freezing cold not to mention we ordered a bowl and it came... More

My expectations where high after my experience in Asheville, NC. Instead I had a server who was ok, but you could sense she wasn't thrilled. Anyway, my stead was overcooked and I was too exhausted to send it back. I will try other locations and see if my experience here was just an off night.
