Description: Charley's Steak House has created a unique dining experience unsurpassed...
Charley's Steak House has created a unique dining experience unsurpassed in the industry. The restaurant's namesake, Charley Woodsby, co-founder of the Red Lobster chain, was honored by the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association with the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006. After selling Red Lobster to General Mills in 1970, Charley and his son Ron Woodsby developed Talk of the Town Restaurants - the corporate parent to Charley's Steak House. Over the years the Woodsby's have become "beef aficionados" with a steadfast formula for success: feature only Midwest grain-fed USDA Prime & Choice beef, age on-site for 4 to 6 weeks, and have management cut meat daily and season for 30 hours to create distinctive flavor. The steak is then flame-grilled over a 1200° open pit, fueled with a combination of Florida citrus & oak wood. This carefully monitored process provides for quality, tenderness and a tantalizing taste that elevates Charley's to the ultimate steakhouse experience. Since its inception, Charley's Steak House has prided itself on being a traditional steakhouse. But with the rise in number of savvy diners came the need to evolve the definition of 'steakhouse'. Instituting a corporate chef and placing managing chefs at each location, Charley's has advanced into a traditional steakhouse with culinary flair featuring chef-driven appetizers and entrees as well as established menu items.

Went to two steak houses on our trip. Money was not an issue, food quality was. Charley's Steak House was good but not worth the price for what they served. The filet was not tender and did not cut well. My wife and children all had different sizes of filets and all seemed consistent with a lesser cut. Not what... More

The first time at Charley’s was for a surprise birthday dinner for a friend. We did not know what to expect and first impression we were blown away by the higher prices. Hubby and I ordered one of the least expensive items on the menu – Pork Chops. We were blown away at the size of the two chops presented... More

Good food and amazing stake, but I don't think that it is price for the service that you get and the old out dated setting. The restaurant seemed very cheap with having paper table clothes and the service was just slow.

My husband and I were out in town looking for a comfortable place to have dinner. Nothing fancy but something better then fast food lol. I saw the sign for Charley's Steak House and we decided to eat there. When we walked in it was like stepping back into the 1920's/1930's. Smell of old leather, wine everywhere, tables set up...

We ordered a glass of Mezzaconona pinot grigio wine and a glass of campo viejo wine . It was nice to have European choices on wine as we prefer them. We then both ordered the aged Angus ribeye steak with asparagus and Parmasan kettle fries. One was cooked rare and the other Pittsburgh. The later was something I had never... More
