Nice restaurant--higher prices

We visited here for supper while waiting on a rain delay for a baseball tournament. It's a really nice restaurant and great atmosphere. The prices were a bit more than we expected. Typically when we travel with baseball families we try and eat places that are comparable with TGIF or even less... read more

Parking is good. Serrvice was wonderful. Prices were appropriate for the situation. I love their salad and steak. Sometimes I order something else but not usually. There is a small bar but I like to sit at a table. There is a dark ambience but good lightlng directly over the tables so that you can see the menu. I seldom... More

We entered this exposed brick basement looking bar and restaurant. The BBQ smoke aromas abound. The staff was awesome! We had Salads and Babybacks. And for a chain restaurnt, I'd give high marks for the ribs. Theyre not you crazy Uncle's that are smoked for 8-10 hours but these are quality. I destroyed them!!! The sleeper is the croissant.

Charleston's on the far north side is excellent. We've visited over 15 times and have never been disappointed. From spinach artichoke dip, to potato soup, to chicken avocado club sandwich, to French dip, to steak, to chicken strips, to fresh fish choices- all are fresh, and hand cut in house. The atmosphere is very classy with dark wood paneling, brick,... More

Over several years, I have had a dinners and lunches at the Carmel IN Charlston's Restaurant and have never been disappointed. Most recently I met a good friend for lunch. Our server, Mark, was a fairly new hire but was knowledgeable and very friendly and helpful. The menu is varied and the food has always been very good. Service and... More

This was our first visit. We visited for Easter dinner with friends from the area. The service and food were both fantastic. The quality of the beef was excellent as well. Children's meals were excellent as well, not your typical "kids meals". I would highly recommend Charleston's.

I went here with my children and the food was amazing. It's hard to find a place where I can take them to get food they like, yet have a peaceful atmosphere for good conversation.

Single sided menu- few special's on the board. Selection for your meal is not over whelming. Atmosphere is nice for dinner it's dark decor' and low ceiling makes it a cozy spot. Service is always excellent. Food is above "better than average", and we have had some very good meals here. Just not consistent for an excellent meal rating. It... More

I invited an old fiend to lunch and settled on Charlestons. We had a lunch salad and split the philly steak sandwich. Salads were well prepared and the philly was great. Server seemed new and not sure of the menu selections, bit was attentive and helpful.
