Atmosphere was dark and old school. Wait staff seated us quickly but when we ordered sandwiches not a $35 steak it was drop and go. Had to ask for a refill of water twice. No refill offered on soft drink. Reuben was very good as was the chicken avocado. The prime rib dip was nothing to write home about lacking... More

We met friends for an early dinner on Wednesday. Pleasant surprise. Ample parking and plenty of seating within the restaurant. Great selection of meals on the menu. We decided on the chicken parmesan on angel hair . It was delicious. Good choice. Huge portion so we split it. Atmosphere was good and service was great. Highly recommend. It was nice... More

We had a spur of the moment idea to get some seafood without having drive over to the West-side of the valley. We had delicious clam chowder, Caesar salad, house salad, and the catfish dinner. Recommend asking for extra crispy crust on the fish. We also had the fluffy croissants everyone raves aboutl

If you're looking for a great lunch hangout, here's the place to do it...especially if you're looking for a great sandwich. We went in search of a Reuben after hearing from others and we weren't disappointed. The Reuben is piled high with thousand island dressing on the side. Others in our party ordered hamburgers grilled-to-order (and reported equally great reviews).... More

Great for lunch meeting. Service was so so and food came out slow and incorrect. Atmosphere was good but probably wouldn't return. Expect more for the cost.

My wife and I have been going here for many years. We even had participated in their "soft" opening runs when they first opened (one of our steaks was not cooked per order but they made it right). We firmly believe that Charlestons took very good notes prior to opening and they know the restaurant business and how to keep... More

Had one of the best meals here. I had the Short Smoked Salmon, My wife had the Talapia special. My Salmon was amazing, the veges were good. Best was it was not crowded and therefore quiet and relaxing. The service was excellent as well. You will enjoy it.

Good food. Variety of choices of food from hamburgers to steaks from salads to seafood and a few good desserts. My wife had the cheeseburger and it was big enough for lunch leftovers. The coleslaw is a little different but excellent. I had the shrimp scampi which was very good and very filling. Go on a Friday and you can... More

I went to Charleston's with a large of adults and children. We were in a side area, so it was more private and not too noisy. The steaks and ribs were very good. Trout was a little over done. Save room for dessert. The key lime pie had rave reviews as did the warm brownie with ice cream.

Whether it's is Tulsa, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler or Fort Worth, Charleston's is my favorite American style restaurant. I know the menu and where the restroom is located. It always feels like you are home. This time I had the classic chicken avocado club. My recommendation is to get the chicken on the side and eat it with the sandwich. If... More
