Friendly staff

We have been in this sports bar a couple of times now to have a beer. We really enjoy the friendly atmosphere and will come back next time we are in town.

Can't cook eggs benedict. Staff was very nice. Manager offered to make me something else, but I was ready to go. He did give me a piece of caramel pie for free. But, we will not go back here. The last 2 visits have not been good ones.

So when we walk in the door, *I* said hello to the staff (3 young ladies standing at the podium doing...I have no idea) and had to strain to hear their response. They weren't that busy so we were seated right away. The young lady that seated us seemed very timid....not someone I'd choose to greet customers. Our waitress was... More

Smyrna has a hidden gem at this location which is nestled off the interstate away from the other big restaurants but when you walk in you smell the food in the air. From hot delicious cooked to perfection steaks to fresh salads and don't forget free pie Wednesday's which with a family of four always comes in handy. We personally... More

Not a bad restaurant. The food is good. I just like going here because they always have tables available, while the other restaurants are packed you can always to go O'Charley's and won't have to wait. I definitely recommend the strawberry lemonade, best I've ever had.

We dine at O'Charley's in Smyrna about 2 times per month and have for a number of years. I cannot think of a time when we have been disappointed with our food and the service. I should note that we usually dine at "off" hours! Sunday brunch is a favorite with a great variety of choices. For dinner or Sunday... More

We haven't been to an O'Charleys in some time as our last experience wasn't good (though a different state altogether) Glad we didn't hold it against Smyrna,as we had an excellent meal & service was okay. Definitely worth a stop.

I love O'Charleys, but this past weekend was a bomb. The management team has mostly changed. Got there at 9 PM and had to wait because "they were cleaning off tables". The place was 3/4 empty and when we finally got our food it was cold. Very unusual for O'Charleys.

Comparing this visit to the brand and starting at a 5. Food met expectation. But service was very slow. Drinks took forever. Out of common items. Would have loved to have tried the desserts but had no more time to kill. Was pretty dirty for being early evening on a Monday. Sorry Charley.
