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.

Fantastic evening - highly recommend.

Charley's is a top notch dining experience. Our server Frias was very knowable of the menu as well as the wine selection. He also took the time to explain all questions ask. Steaks were cook perfect. I would not only recommend Charley's as a must go to when visiting Orlando but recommend you ask for Frias to serve you as... More

My family and I recently went to Orlando for the first time in about six years. We had been to Charley's a couple of times in the past. I called and made reservations for April 19th which was my daughter's birthday. We had a great time and the food was amazing. They treated us like royalty and made my daughter's... More

Two years ago my wife and I had a wonderful experience at Charley's Steak House. She is not a meat eater like me but claimed it was the best steak she ever had and ate the whole thing which she never does. So when visiting Orlando again we wanted that same experience. Unfortunately we were disappointed this time. I ordered... More

We had a party of 14 celebrating my mothers birthday. From the moment we arrived the manager was very attentive. Our waiter took our order quite promptly. Our appetizers were fabulous, we tried the deep fried gater, the lobster Mac and cheese, the tomato and onion salad, and two others which were all fabulous. The main course was a little... More

You go to Charley's for steaks and they don't disappoint,. Great steaks, nice sides, fine presentation,. Service was not the best, but the restaurant was crowded. Some say the prices are high, but compared to what? Ponderosa? The prices are fair when compared to other establishments of this nature.

Overall experience could have been better. Our party of 7 had a reservation, when we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted by a less than friendly hostess who spoke to us in a very condescending tone. After waiting 20 min past our reservation time, the hostess approached us and told us that our reservation could no longer be held... More

We had heard good reviews about this place so decided to treat ourselves during our holiday! The interior is like a typical steakhouse. Our waiter was lovely, and the steak presentation was a nice touch. He really explained everything well which did help us make our choice. I had a pineapple flavoured cocktail and it was one of the best... More

We waited to come back to Charley's for the second time as had a good experience many years ago. Sadly we were very disappointed with our experience. The restaurant was totally overpriced and although the steaks were tasty, the sides were extra as well making the average PPP $40 without starters or a dessert or wine. The wine was $50... More
