Never disappoints, always fabulous!

I have eaten here several times now and am always pleased. The service is wonderful, the food is vey good and I have never had to wait long to be seated. It is surprising to see such a nice ambiance inside when the outside is very plain. I love to be surprised in a good way by a restaurant so... read more

Charleston's is a favorite place for us when we are celebrating a special occasion. For us, it's worth the 45 minute drive from our home. There is a high degree of professionalism among the staff and servers, yet you feel welcomed and comfortable-not stiff. The food has always been great and the atmosphere is wonderful.

My boyfriend and I probably discussed 25-30 restaurants to visit that Friday (1/2/15) night. We made a reservation on Open Table for 7:30. The place was packed when we got there, so I'm glad we made the reservation. Macy took great care of us. We'll definitely be back.

Went with friends on a busy Saturday night. Fortunately, we'd made a reservation on OpenTable, and were seated promptly. Food was fabulous ... 3 of us had the beef medallions special, and it was melt in your mouth delicious. Even the glazed carrots I had for a side were amazing! Our sever, Justin, was friendly and professional, explaining dishes when... More

We met two other couples for dinner to celebrate a birthday. The service was excellent and the meals were great. I had the short smoked salmon dish which was excellent. The only salmon dish that exceeded this one was a fresh King salmon we had in Alaska years ago. My wife had Chilean sea bass which was also great. We... More

Charlestons has been around a number of years and I have never had a bad meal there. The atmosphere is nice, warm and cozy. The menu truly has something for everyone. And the prices are reasonable. I met a friend there for lunch. I had the soup and salad combo. The soup was chicken tortilla and the salad was topped... More

Simple, tried-and-true menu that we never seem to tire of ... food and service usually consistant and we know exactly what we're going to get ... a great meal at a great price in a great setting. From ribs to great salads, delicious soups and vegetables, steaks and pork chops, and the best croissants in town. Winner-winner-chicken-dinner (and that's pretty... More
