3.5 stars is a fair rating. Meat is cooked and spiced well, sea food is fresh and walnut salad is very good. This restaurant is on the pricey side but is not too bad compared to competition. Consider trying their stake and their trout fish. I expected a better martini for $ 10. Service is good but could be faster.

whether you looking for dining with your spouse or with a group, Charlie Gs is always a great choice. I really like having the option to dine in the restaurant section or in the bar area--both great experiences. All of their appetizers are fantastic and the main course selections are always great. My wife's favorite is the salmon--she will not... More

My wife and I decided on this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. Chase was our very attentive and informative waiter. We decided on the 5 oz (for madam) and 8 oz. (for monsieur) Filet Mignon. Living in Acadiana, I consider myself a pretty good steak cook--but the wife and I both agree that these were the two best steaks we... More

Look no further for the best food, atmosphere and hospitality not only in Lafayette, but LA! you will not order anything that disappoints, but you can't go wrong with the tuna tartar appetizer, duck and andouille gumbo or crispy duck. Great piano bar Friday and Saturday night too.

We fought through 40 minutes of cross town traffic to get to Charley G's in time for lunch ( they serve from 11-2 during the week) plus dinner. Had a cup of duck and andouille sausage gumbo. It had a very dark rich roux which and a cup was exactly enough. Had a nice grilled mahi mahi and creme brûlée... More

I called to make reservations and said that it was my brother's birthday. When we got there they had decorated the table and signed a card for him. Very sweet! The crab cakes were delicious, cooked perfectly and had nice big chunks of crab. The duck and andouille gumbo was thick and tasty, just like I like it. Coconut shrimp... More

Several workers in the kitchen were sporting large ugly untrimmed beards which were not protected from the food by nets and the head guy had one too! YUK! Food was mediocre and served over an hour after ordering. Everything on the menu is heavy, nothing light and extremely over-priced. So disappointed as this WAS a favorite of mine.

Excellent menu and excellent service. The Sea Bass I ordered was cooked perfectly and the presentation was high quality. Cocktails are on the money and the selection of Bourbon was outstanding. A bit on the pricey side but well the money in my opinion. Wonderful bread pudding dessert dish and I recommend asking for Mike as a server. Very attentive... More
