Description: Charley's Steak House is owned by the Woodsby family and has operated in Florida since 1974. Charley’s serves only three-year-old USDA prime and choice Angus steers, aging them four to six weeks for tenderness & flavor and hand-cutting the steaks daily to ensure consistent quality. The steaks are then flame-broiled over Florida citrus and oak wood in a custom-built pit at 1200º searing in the tantalizing taste that has made Charley’s the #1 steakhouse in America every year since 2007! Charley’s philosophy of providing only the finest extends from the kitchen to the wine cellar. The wine list approaches 1000 selections from scores of exceptional wineries around the globe. Charley’s has been recognized with numerous awards including “Best of Award of Excellence” from Wine Spectator magazine, DiRōNA and Orlando Magazine’s“ Best Steak House & Best Old Favorite”. Charley’s has been creating fans from around the world for nearly 40 years. We look forward to having you become a fan soon!

The food was good I expected the price's being that it's a steak house but I still feel it's a bit too much seeing how the restaurant could use some updates but service was good didn't have too look around for some one and my cup was never empty which are the two big pluses when it comes to service!

We went there to celebrate a birthday. Seated promptly. Nice ambience overall, but it was rather loud in our seating area -- hard to hear across the booth table. We ordered drinks for our birthday celebration, and found out that they don't offer the drink on their menu anymore. Strange. Then we ordered an appetizer that they came back and... More

I have been to many steakhouses over the years throughout the United States Charley's is one of the best! We had a server named Frias who knew his craft and knew the restaurant and all about their cuts of meat they were serving he did an excellent job and I would advise a trip to this restaurant anytime you're in...

One of better steak houses in Tampa. Pretty good steak and sides with pretty reasonable prices. They explain how everything is produced from the farm to the kitchen which is pretty cool. The service is very good with a friendly staff. Definitely one of my top 3 steakhouses.

We had a 6:pm reservation on 8/17/14. Arrived promptly at 5:55pm, seated immediately by the hostess. That was the best part of our visit. Our server, Jeannie, was very inattentive to our needs. We ordered two shrimp cocktails, she only brought one. Strike one. I ordered an 8oz filet, medium rare, came out cold. My wife ordered lamb t-bone chops,... More

Me and 5 of my best friends just experienced the Stags Leap wine tasting and dinner at Charley's. WOW. Not only was the 5 different wines we had each amazing by themselves, the unique and tasty couplings they unveiled were to die for. NONE of the items they served were on the regular menu. How do they create for just... More

Oh my another amazing evening and meal at Charley's! We attended the Stag's Leap wine and food pairing at Charley's this week and they pulled out all of the stops to make it a truly unique evening. The Chefs out did themselves with each course being better than the last and everything tasted even more heavenly since it was expertly... More

Last night Charley's steakhouse hosted a food and wine pairing featuring Stag's Leap Wines. It was one of the best dinners I have had at this restaurant and it is consistently one of the best restaurants in the country.

First time at Charley's and heard how great it was....I was not disappointment. Went there on a company outing and from the appetizers to the Filet everything was Delicious...Great Food. The Filet was made to perfection! A must try is the Beef Tenderloin Carpaccio as an appetizer. Tori our waitress was amazing!
