My husband and I were in town preparing for my son's event the next day. I had printed the menu from here in advance, and we were looking forward to eating here, since we hadn't had saganaki since we were dating back in the '80s!...So it turned into kind of an anniversary meal, and although we didn't have reservations, we were seated immediately at a booth, which was nice. We started with the Flaming Saganaki ($10.99)(which the friendly waiter Sal told us is better when spread on the warm, delicious bread they provide). Hubby had the Oysters Rockefeller as his appetizer, but the last steakhouse we visited I ordered those and was disappointed, so I was shocked when these were everything I remembered - warm and savory, with delicious spinach and bacon. YUM. For dinner, I wanted the prime rib, but my husband thought it would be sweet to have the super large (32 oz.?) ribeye for two, so that's what we had. That was around $45 (?), but the quality of the meat was very high. We ended up taking some home, too. Hubby doesn't eat mushrooms (which came atop the steak), so I ate those, and my side was another delicious treat - a mashed potato dish with sour cream and chives. I couldn't finish it all, so took it home for the next day. Kev had a romaine salad, which he also said was very good, and his side was green beans, which he liked. We were too full for dessert, but I wish we lived closer so we could come back again and try some of their other delights. The whole meal for the 2 of us was under $150, but the quality of the food was very high, and the service was amazing. Somewhere in there, I also had a clam chowder, since we had just come from a vacation on the east coast, and that was extremely tasty as well. I had a soft drink and my husband had a beer. This is an indulgence, but if you're going out for a special occasion (or simply love good food), I would strongly recommend coming here. Things were quiet around 5, but picked up by the time we left at 6:30. Ask for Sal! You won't go wrong with the service, either.More

OMG had another fantastic meal here. I’ve been here about 20x and never had a bad meal or service. The steak au polve is incredible and so is the prime rib. The seafood is very fresh tasting too. We feasted on the seafood tower. My...new girlfriend has never been here before and was extremely impressed with everything. While at first glance it may appear expensive, keep in mind that the salad and sides are included-not extra. Great value and unique atmosphere.More

I’ve been here at least 30x and have never had a bad experience. Steaks and prime rib are great and the seafood fantastic!!! I took my new girlfriend here for her birthday and she was very impressed with the food, service and atmosphere. It’s a...great value because they include the salad and sides with the dinner vs. ala carte for everything. If you’re considering Foxfire in Geneva I highly recommend this place instead.

After reading so many positive reviews we were so looking forward to their "prime rib special for 2" carry out which consisted of 2 pieces of prime rib, 2 potato, 2 salad, and dinner rolls. One of the prime rib was excellent but the other...was mostly fat so there was not much left of meat. Now we understand that prime rib is not the leanest of meat and tends to be fatty but this piece was too fatty. The potatoes were tasty but the salads were terrible, mostly brown lettuce (not fresh), 1 grape tomato and 1 cucumber slice. We could not eat them. The dinner rolls were fresh and tasty. We had high expectations for this restaurant but I doubt we will return.More

What a great place to get a hunk of meat and more! Large inside with an eclectic interior. Started the night with a Duck Liver Pate which was scrumptious. Nice variety of accoutrements with the Pate as well and ample toasted bread pieces. Next up...a delicious homemade chicken noodle soup. Onto a classic wedge salad with plenty of blue cheese dressing. The service from the bar was lickity split with ample pours/mixes. Our server Dan was very attentive and paced our meal as requested. For dinner we had the bone in ribeye for two. Perfectly cooked with plenty of mushrooms and a nice baked potato and we added asparagus which was grilled to perfection. We had the world's smallest mouse for dessert just because(too filled). Plenty to take home. This is the place to go for steak lovers and I'm sure all the fare is just as fine as we had. No frills, just good old fashioned eats!!!More

We had gone here for a friends birthday with about 8 people and the atmosphere was nice and something different and the owner also greeted you at the door as well as came to each table which was very nice. Our waiter though treated us...as if we were waisting his time. Our food was also very cold. I had a soup that was on special, and it was as cold as it came from a refrigerator. The birthday girls dinner was forgotten about, so we all sat their with our Main course in front of us for about 15 min before eating so she could get her meal first. The food was on the pricey side considering the service we received. Our waiters mask was also mesh, which I feel defeats the purpose of a mask during COVID times.More

I planned to take one of my grandsons for dinner to celebrate his birthday. Being he a meat lover I decided on St. Charles Place. As usual two more grandsons came; three were left behind -their loss-. They were all very impressed with the place....From the architectural design to the decoration, it is a very nice place. And if we talk about the food, well, it is superb. Two guys decided to have Roast Prime Rib. They wanted to order the 22 oz. but I talked them for the 16oz. The other one had Filet Mignon and stuffed srimps. I had Lamb chops. All the food was perfect. The 16 oz.is a delicious, saucy, tender, big cut; the filet mignon was cooked to perfection with real big shrimps. My lamb chops could not have been better. Because I am grandpa I got to taste everything. If you are in the area, do not miss it. To eat at St. Charles Place is a must.More

No matter what the day or occasion, this is a very good place to dine. We were here in December, on a Friday night around 5. The holiday decor was so festive and made the spirit of the season give you a big hug. The...staff is attentive and friendly and understand that you don't want to rush through your dinner. We started with saganaki and our serve took the dinner order but promised he would not put it in until we had finished our appetizer. Perfect! He did well at pacing our meal so we could enjoy each course. We had the ahi tuna dish and the steak au poivre. Both dishes were fantastic. The tuna was seared rare with a side noodle and some wasabi and the steak was heavenly. Fresh warm rolls are at the table and they are very generous with the bread. Cocktails are a generous size and there is no skimping on the alcohol. If you have the chance, dine here and you will become a long time fan. Good meal, good service and good atmosphere make for a satisfying evening.More
