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.

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... 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.
