Description: Charley's Steak House Aged Steaks & Market Fresh Fish is truly the most...
Charley's Steak House Aged Steaks & Market Fresh Fish is truly the most award-winning restaurant in Tampa! Among its many accolades, Charley's has been voted one of the Top Ten Best Steakhouses in America, Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence and Sante Awards for High Level of Professional Service & Culinary Cuisine. Our USDA Prime & Choice steaks are aged on the premises for four to six weeks and are hand-cut daily by management to ensure consistent quality. The steaks are then flame-grilled over our unique 1200° Florida citrus and oak wood fueled custom pit. To increase flavor, Charley's cuts all their steaks "on the bone" because their bone releases flavor and helps the meat retain its natural juices during the cooking process. A lively and energetic lounge, chef-driven daily specials, signature steaks, an award-winning wine list and top notch service enhances each guest's dining experience to the fullest!

It will be sad to see this iconic move to a new location.

This was my first visit for dinner. It was fabulous! The steak, a bone in rib eye, was cooked perfectly. The mushrooms and onions on the side were amazing. We had a bernaise sauce too that was great. We sat at the bar and ate the bread which was really tasty. The salads were good. Overall... read more

Visiting Tampa from Houston and went to Charley's instead of Berns based on reviews we have read. Had a reservation and were promptly seated in a room in the back. Minutes later, a family of about 12 with several children came to the adjacent table. I spoke to the hostess and said we wanted to have a special dinner in... More

My husband and I went to celebrate getting my graduate degree last night. I had high expectations and looked forward to going a great deal. To start with, I couldn't read the menu since it was so dark. I am not sight-impaired, but pity the poor souls who come to Charley's Steak House. This is not an accessible restaurant. The... More

Every bit of the meal was delicious! Started with the gator appetizer which I throughly enjoyed for the first time. I had the Angus Dry-Aged Bone-In Ribeye which could have been cut with a butter knife. The side of mashed potatoes paired perfectly and the salted caramel cheesecake was devoured for desert. The food all came with a great presentation... More

Love. Can I go back again today? Joseph was our incredible and knowledgeable server. He brought us several wine samples, because we couldn't decide. He made some very thorough recommendations and helped us pick a bottle. We started with the smoke Caesar salad, and added the bacon, which was unreal. These ain't no bacon bits. A huge piece of bacon... More

we went to celebrates a friends birthday. The service was horrendous. We had to ask 3 times for a wine list and actually got our appetizers before they brought the list so could not enjoy wine with them. Actually the appy's came when they were showing us the steaks so by the time they were served they were cold. My... More

Just saw a recent review about a group being very loud, we must have been there the same night! We were seated quickly even though we did not have reservations. The service was excellent, the food was great. It is not cheap which made it discouraging that there was a group of 10, mostly guys, near us, a few wearing... More

In early October 2015, I e-mailed Charley's corporate. I explained that I wanted a reservation for five, for my daughters 21st birthday and I wanted it to be special ( seating away from kitchen or restrooms, any a recommendation on an experienced waiter/ waitress). I informed them of the date in November, and the location -Tampa. I received a quick... More

After reading you review I would like to apologize that you had trouble getting a reservation in place for your daughter's 21st birthday. I am not sure where or why the communication broke down and no one got back to you, but I can assure it was unintentional. We would never want to miss out on helping a family celebrate... More

My husband and I went to Charley's after an event in Ybor on Sunday. Our server, Joseph, was outstanding! He was knowledgeable about the cuts of steak, and recommended an excellent appetizer--bacon wrapped scallops. For your side dish, don't miss out on the roasted cauliflower! The bartenders, Matt and Anthony, were excellent too! Very cheerful. Matt makes a mean martini.... More

Steaks and pork chops were tasty. Sides were just ok. The service was beyond slow. We sat at the table for 45 min. before our order was taken. They left the meat tray next to the table for 30 min. The deserts are not home made. Baked potato was excellent. The smashed potatoes were not good. The carrot cake was... More
