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.

Started dining at Charlie's original location in mid 1980s when working in Orlando. Have since dined many times at all their locations. I continue to enjoy the high quality of their food and will continue to dine at Charley's whenever I find myself in Orlando.

Some of the BEST steak we've eaten! (And we travel extensively and have dined at all kinds of steak houses, at various levels.) Charley's is consistently DELICIOUS! Their prime rib is full of flavor and perfectly cooked! Their sides are out of this world! And their desserts are delicious and HUGE! Expect to take home 'a second meal' worth of... More

We celebrated our anniversary at Charley's and it was great! We already have plans to fly back next year. The Kobe steak is worth the trip.

Heard a lot about this restaurant and had the chance to go. I learn a lot about the quality of meat. The presentation about the restaurant, the presentation of the food and quality was GREAT. Also, the customer service was outstanding. If you visit this restaurant ask for Ivan - he was GREAT!!!

Northeast style steakhouse located in a sort of roadside shopping plaza on International Drive in Orlando, FL. Everything appeared to be standard for the genre until I saw the WAGYU bone-in ribeye! If you haven't tried Kobe-style beef like this, I cannot describe it to you. Cooked over a wood fire using orange wood for fuel, I have never eaten... More
