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.

Outstanding Dining Experience

Wrapped up a long golf weekend and revisited Charley's for dinner on a busy Saturday evening. Started off a little bumpy when we realized that our on line reservation was booked for Sunday evening. The hostess said if we could give her a few minutes to get a table set up, it would not be a problem... read more

Although expensive, the quality of the steaks and food was exceptional. All overseen and orchestrated by our host David Cross who was not only knowledgeable but ensured that our dining experience and every request was met with enthusiasm and professionalism. Thank you David.

I never write reviews this is actually my first one ever. My wife and I have been eating at Charley's for years and this last experience was the best dining experience I have had. I got the fabulous filet and it was ideally cooked. My wife got the mixed grill that the chef himself originally rejected because he was not... More

The food and service were both excellent. Our server was Francis, he was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations. It was a great experience from start to finish and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely return for dinner again.

Looks like any other restaurant from the outside but when you get inside the place was amazing. Warm and friendly welcome and the service was great too. The steaks were fantastic and HUGE. Well worth a visit. They have a steak and Lobster combo for 2 people. What a Monster.

We ended up being a group of around 40 people for dinner. We felt very sorry for the small table of people in our area that had to contend with 40 quite noisy people but felt the restaurant should have offered to move them rather than keep insisting we talk quieter - instead we had to buy two bottles of...

A fantastic Angus, one of the best I ever had. Simply great service, one advice I do have is to most definitely try the butters the waiters suggest they are decadent. The winelist is huge and they have daily specials. Thanks Francis and Charley's staff.
