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.

We went to Orlando for the weekend and had dinner at Charleys Steak House in Orlando for the first time. There were 6 of us for dinner. The service was wonderful, the food was delicious and the evening one of the best. My husband and I shared a A Porterhouse steak. Price was $44 and well worth it. We also... More

My company took us out for steaks at Charley's and the whole experience was great. The food was cooked exactly as requested. The wait staff was on the ball without hovering over us. The place itself was nice...maybe a bit packed in on the seating. It wasn't hard to be part of the conversation at the nearest tables, so do... More

This is the 2nd time we ate at Charley's and the ribeye is hands own the best choice on the menu, for me a bone in ribeye is among the best things to order out. This place does it right, there is also a pretty diverse wine menu to wash down the good times. We had rented a large space... More

On Sept 7, 2014 I had the 24 oz angus ribeye with bleu cheese crumbles. I took more than 1/2 of it home. I did not have any sides or salad, just water for drink. I'm 62 I could not possibly eat more than I did. To my understanding they grill the steaks at 1200 degree which sears in the... More

Had the filet, was cooked perfectly and the flavor is second to none. The bleu cheese mashed potatoes were one if the sides I've had. Service is great and it's in an easy location to get to.

For steak it truly gets no better than this. It is the number 1 steakhouse in America and it shows. The food here is phenomenal and reasonably priced for what you get. It is a la carte so be prepared for that

Excellent ambience, if a little dark! Food was top notch, service was excellent. Top dollar but you get what you pay for, and it's a step up from the normal tourist places.

I first had dinner here in 2010 and since then I've eaten here at least two dozen times. The only complaint I have is that they used to have a larger assortment of steaks. But for the price is unbeatable. If you go to Ruth's you'll spend double per person. Capital Grill 2 1/2 times…Flemings is not as good quality... More
