One of the best meals we had while down there. The steaks are very good and I really enjoy the salad bar (it has so many options). Everything from drinks to dessert was excellent. a shout-out to our waiter Carlos...not just great service but a great personality. He only added to our great experience.

Only bad thing about this place is they don't have a bar! There is a table waiting area where you can have a drink or drinks are served to your table. However, that small setback is well compensated for by the food - its not cheap but the quality of the steaks are to die for. I prefer the King... More

Ate here first night arriving after 2 1/2 hours from Tampa and flight from UK, Just wanted a simple meal and quick service. Got both. Salad bar IS better than your average in USA, not all chopped up but did oddly seem to have blue jello as an option. Too tired to try that one, but I can say the... More

Seated by the window over looking a canal, the view was great. Large salad bar, good selection. There are an early bird dinner specials, my selection was blackened catfish. Bread is very good, servers were always nearby but never intrusive. $$ pricing

My husband and I have lived in Fort Myers for almost 4 years and this is the best restaurant of all time!! We've been there about 6-7 times. Their steaks are fantastic and their salad bar is to die for..........it is huge and wonderful. Desserts are great too!! Definitely worth going there!!

Went to this restaurant on recommendation of a friend. Filet Mignon was good. Dinner rolls were good. Shrimp was incredibly small. Huge serve yourself salad bar. Building is old and a little stinky inside. Did not like the view of the "swamp" while eating. Husband ended up with a very upset stomach after eating shrimp and salad bar here.

Enjoyed a fabulous dinner with my family over the Labor Day holiday. Our server, Chad, was very knowledgeable on the menu, answered all our questions and provided excellent service. The food was outstanding, we ordered prime rib, steak and shrimp & scallops - delicious! We also enjoyed the large salad bar, very fresh and so many items to choose from,... More

Charley's has the best steak anywhere and has an incredible salad bar with over 50 items. The wait staff can not do enough for you and the filet mignon was to die for. We also ordered dessert which was worth every penny. Just go, relax, eat and eat!
