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'.

Great steak and great service

I had the urge for a decent steak and took the recommendation of my hotel concierge to try Charley's. I wasn't disappointed at all! The 24oz porterhouse steak was amazing!

We stayed at the JW Marriott and asked the concierge to recommend a good steakhouse. She got us a reservation at Charley's. Upon arrival in to the restaurant's entrance, my husband remarked Charley's seemed like a Houlihan's or Applebee's restaurant. The interior leaves much to be desired. We were seated and our server (forgot to get his name) was very... More

My friends and had the pleasure to be served by Fabio. Wow what a comedian and friendly host. Besides the great service he provided, I must say the chilean sea bass is the best I have had this far. Very impressed. Charley's will definitely see my friends again in the future. Two thumbs up...

The best part of our experience was the customer service it was excellent. My husband and I both work in customer service and we notice when it's a great quality. Our server Brooke was great! She interacted with our daughter so well! Regarding the food it was delicious! We couldn't finish it all, but still very good. Thank you!

My husband introduced me to this restaurant years ago. I was blown away by the amazing staff and even more amazing food. Last year we went on our annual trip and it the management decided to overlook and under staff. I guess the management is more concerned about the All Mighty Dollar more than its employees and customers. This trip... More

My husband and I celebrated our 30th Anniversary at Charley's last night. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The staff, especially Brooke, was extremely kind from the minute we walked in the door until we were leaving and I forgot my coat and Brooke came to give it back even calling me by name. We will definitely... More

An unsolicited recommendation to dine at Charley’s proved amazing. Best food, best beverages, best dessert. Be sure to have their delicious bread too, different from any other. The service by Ivan was exemplary. He blended in with the superb culinary experience with his charm and details about the food. We loved every minute of the great dining experience.

So this visit was better than the last one at a different location. The service from beginning to end was great, attentive and fast. The food was perfectly cooked and our waiter, Ivan, was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and paid close attention to what we needed at all times. The temperature of the steak was perfect, although the seasoning... More
