“Where else can you get great prime rib for lunch?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

So many steakhouses are only open for dinner, or if they are open for lunch, they don't serve prime rib (i.e. Outback on weekends), because they don't want to start cooking the prime rib early in the morning to get it right. This restaurant chain offers great prime rib for lunch. We've had many other dishes and they've all been great. The service is also excellent. We've eaten at two of the valley locations (this one and Scottsdale) and recommend them.

“Our Favorite Celebration spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

I know this is a chain, but I've never to been to a different one. This is the only location we've been to. It's a very nice place, top notch service, amazing food and it won't break the bank. We used to go more often, when kids ate free on Sundays, but that great deal went away about a year ago.

The chicken tenders her are like no other...they are so moist on the inside, but a nice tempura crunchy outside. They are amazing! Adults and kids alike will love them! Their fries are the best too. I have to mention their honey croissants...so buttery and the perfect compliment to any salad. They are served along side at no extra charge.

Everything on the menu is amazing though, so if you've never been, give it a try. It's our families favorite place to go but we reserve it for special occasions since the kids eat free deal went away.

Charleston's is in an easy to reach location with ample parking. The entrees and appetizers are great. The portion are large and served hot by a very friendly staff.

“Nice for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We came into the restaurant on the Saturday before Mother's Day. We had a wonderful lunch with excellent service. Two of our party ran late but we were seated promptly and had an appetizer while waiting. The Server made sure our drinks never got empty and was very patient.

The men ordered burgers which were hot and fresh with delicious fries. The ladies had salads which were fresh and interesting with lots of yummy ingredients. You MUST have the warm honey-butter croissant! The décor is interesting and fun. Everyone was friendly and our server really made it a nice Mother's Day lunch for us ladies. I would come here again!

“A pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

After 10 years in Chandler, I finally got around to trying Charleston's. Such a good experience that I could kick myself for not having tried it before.

The menu was quite varied, allowing you to eat from light to full dinners---and a nice variety of each. The service was as good as the food with a friendly, knowledgeable staff that covered each other so you never felt neglected. They were good enough to let the manager know that we were first timers and he came over to welcome us and be sure we were happy.

The final triumph was the dessert; a moist tasty bread pudding topped with a heavenly Grand Marnier sauce. This is as close to sinful as food can get.
