“Potato Soup - BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Each time while traveling to AZ we make sure that we stop by our favorite restaurant of all restaurants that we have ever been to. This place is ranked #1 on our list! Ever time we are there we get the same - potato soup that I absolutely love (I would work in their kitchen for recipe), prime rib and bread pudding - yummmmmmmm!
Service is outstanding and food always delicious!

“Delicious Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Five of us had dinner at Charleston's a few weeks ago. We had a wait of 40 minutes. We eventually got seats at the bar and enjoyed a cocktail before dinner. They serve an awesome frozen peach Bellini! My friend enjoyed their frozen margarita. It is a very busy place and the bar was loud, but fun!

Service was great. Our server was very friendly and helpful with menu questions. We ordered steak, chicken and fish entrees. All of them were delicious! The portions were large!

“This facility has their act together!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Excellent dining experience. Service, food, and ambiance were all working for a great dining experience.

Our party of six enjoyed entrees of BBQ ribs, blackened chicken Caesar salad, top sirloin, shrimp scampi. The side dishes of baked beans, garlic mashed potatoes, burgundy mushrooms, and coleslaw all hit the mark.

Our server Kevin aka PHD was an entertainer and attentive staff member. Very knowledgeable. Consider the bread pudding and key lime pie for a dessert.

“I searched and I FOUND!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Perused the internet in search of a great steak restaurant in Mesa, AZ and found this one.
Took my guy (and his mom) here for his birthday last night. It was a clean, pleasant, bustling atmosphere that was well staffed and full of patrons. Server (Virginia) was very well spoken, friendly, and gave great service! He had Prime Rib, Mom had Tilapia special, and I had Chicken Marsala special. Yummy beyond words, good sized portions, affordable prices and YES! we will be back!

“Fabulous.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Having read all the reviews prior to our visit, we had high expectations.... Our waitress Kacey was excellent... Chicken Picata and Shrimp Scampi were amazing and the apple/walnut cobbler wrapped our evening into a fabulous meal. We are only visiting but will definitely be back next year and will visit the Omaha location when visiting there.
