Description: 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.

Service and food excellent. The steak is delicious as well as the sides. Good choice of wines by the glass. This restaurant has a well deserved reputation. A bit pricey but so are all good steak restaurants.

Excellent steak and service We had the bison, bone-in filet mignon and the marsala and they where all excellent. We hardly had space for the great dessert. The turtle cheese cake and cream brûlée were awesome.

American steakhouse with an really big S. Fantastic service by dressed up servants as they should. I had the Kobe style steak witch tasted like heaven and the only bad thing to say and we all agreed on was that the size could have been smaller. It is really a waste to leve such a good steak behind. If visiting... More

I travel a lot and I love trying new restaurants. When I heard about Charley’s Steakhouse in Orlando, I had to give it a shot. Boy was it worth the trip!! They have an amazing wine selection which is a big plus for me as I am an avid wine lover. I also love how they bring the steaks to... More

I have to admit their appetizers were really good, but as for the steak, it was something interesting I was not able to identify - tiny, burned, crunchy, with some odd smell. Sorry Chef if that was "haute cuisine", but I cleaned my teeth twice to get rid of that aftertaste when I got back to my hotel later on.... More

My wife, a friend and I enjoyed a delicious steak at Charley's Steakhouse. The lettuce wedge salad with crumbled blue cheese was great. The sides were wonderful. The steaks were cooked to perfection. A lot of good choices to choose from on the menu. We really liked the presentation of the steaks before ordering. Overall a very good meal with... More

Charley's is one of the best steakhouses I have visited, I feel the value for your dollar is in every bite of the steak you choose. I visited here with a good friend and everything from driving up to the resturant and smelling the grill sizzling made me salivate entering the resturant and seeing the large grill where my steak...

Charley's lived up to the other reviews on tripadvisor and we really enjoyed our visit. The staff were excellent and they went through the choices of steak by bringing the cuts of meat to the table. They also do the same with the puddings, would recommend sharing the puds as they are big. Would definitely recommend a visit.
