We must have had new waiter's. Two young men assisted our table, we did have a larger group and called ahead to let them know we would be arriving. We had two young men assigned to our table. They didn't have a clue, screwed up the orders, slow service, forgot one order. My food did not come out hot but... More

The food is always good at this restaurant. I have been there many times, often with eight or more friends and the service is consistently good even with a large table of customers.

I put this restaurant at the upper end of casual chains. The food is of a higher quality than the Applebees of the world and the presentation and service are also of a higher quality. I tend toward the chicken dishes, as the seasoning is very good If I have one (very minor) complaint, it would be that it is... More

Very good food and service with a great atmosphere. Very quick service and good lunch menu. Would recommend for a business lunch or a couples. Try the soup.

Charleston's is a not particularly interesting place to eat in a not particularly interesting locale. It has the sense that it thinks it is a better place that it actually is. The food is palatable and the place generally inoffensive, but there are better alternatives for a similar price.

Nice place, good atmosphere, good selection on the menu. Staff was effective, but not overly friendly. We had a variety of items with pretty good results. A little pricey, but not too bad.

I took my friend, who lives in Los Angeles, to have appetizers and Perfect Margaritas at Charleston's, instead of any of the Mexican places in town. She took one sip and said that was the best margarita she has ever tasted. It comes in a cocktail shaker, with a martini glass and two olives. Absolutely fantastic and has ruined me... More

Really liked the atmosphere of the dining room. Service seemed a little awkward and the food was entirely average.
