Description: Charley's Steak House Aged Steaks & Market Fresh Fish is truly the most award-winning restaurant in Tampa! Among its many accolades, Charley's has been voted one of the Top Ten Best Steakhouses in America, Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence and Sante Awards for High Level of Professional Service & Culinary Cuisine. Our USDA Prime & Choice steaks are aged on the premises for four to six weeks and are hand-cut daily by management to ensure consistent quality. The steaks are then flame-grilled over our unique 1200° Florida citrus and oak wood fueled custom pit. To increase flavor, Charley's cuts all their steaks "on the bone" because their bone releases flavor and helps the meat retain its natural juices during the cooking process. A lively and energetic lounge, chef-driven daily specials, signature steaks, an award-winning wine list and top notch service enhances each guest's dining experience to the fullest!

“This is THE place to go to celebrate a special occasion!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Charley's is the BEST restaurant I have ever been to. It has a 5 star reputation with a laid back easy atmosphere. You never know who you may see. All of the local sports stars and celebrities eat here. The night we were there a Baldwin came in! The food is amazing, the atmosphere casual and the staff super attentive and funny! I had the special ribeye steak, asparagus and loaded baked potato. My steak was perfection! Tender and juicy! It's where we go to celebrate!

Also want to note their commitment to the community. Charley's is involved with several local charities and gives back. They recently hosted an event for Wheelchairs 4 Kids during non-business hours and raised $44,000.00!

“Excellent Steaks and Seafood!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

The reputation of Charley's is tossed around with other Top 10 steak houses, and we found it was with good reason. The PorterHouse is huge, the strips were delicious and the T-Bone is one of the better steaks I have eaten. The key is the smokey flavor that they get into the steaks even though they are only cooked for a few minutes at high temps to achieve the perfect medium - rare temp. Its said they use a mix of hardwood including citrus woods. Whatever the source of the smokey flavor, it is good. The meat cuts were high quality too! Scallops were superior to some of the other scallops we had in the Tampa area...maybe due to freshness and correct cooking, I'm not sure why, but they are excellent. Very Pricey and the martinis, although delisc, range in the $15 plus area. Great atmosphere, even better service and top notch deserts.(I would have rated it Excellent if it weren't for the pricey drinks and deserts!

“Perfect celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

This was our first visit to Charley's and I am certain we will go again. The steak was amazing and the scollops a taste sensation. Our server, Mike, paid careful attention to "No gluten, no dairy" requirements and helped me find the right choices. He checked on us frequently enough, without hovering. This birthday celebration was one I will remember, not for a blow-out party, but for a wonderful meal, in an elegant, quiet setting, with great service, and personable staff.

“A Carnivore's dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Charley's is a place with great atmosphere and a well-trained wait staff. Their selection of steaks is amazing and the preparation is also amazing. They offer everything from simple NY Strip tp Bison Filet, and much in between. Our meal was great and reasonable priced for what we got. They also have an extensive wine list. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

“GREAT steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Charley's has the standard steakhouse format and it's executed very well. The standouts to our visit were the amazing flavor of the steaks from the way they're cooked via wood burning and surprisingly their crab cakes. Significant wine list too.
