Instantly feel comfortable upon entering; sitting in dining areas or bar are equally comfortable - welcoming conversation. Charleston's is a chain, but sure doesn't act like it. Food's always good...great blue cheese salad, and perfect steak...add a drink...perfect! Only a couple steps from a fine motel. Just off I-69...and close to I-465. Worth going out of the way to dine... More

This place is great for a business lunch, as the atmosphere is subdued, a bit dark, and quiet. My favorite thing to order is the salmon salad. It's fresh and has raw onions which I love. Salmon is perfectly cooked. Comes with a croissant for carb lovers like me. Always great service here!

We were in town for two days, staying at the Hampton Inn on 82nd Street in Castleton. The Charleston was right next door - an easy walk from the hotel. This restaurant offers typical items such as burgers, salads, etc. but most dishes have more interesting ingredients than what you would normally get. French fries on the side are plentiful....

We were staying in the Hampton and wanted just to walk over and get a late dinner. We should have gotten back in our car and driven down the road to select some other place. The food was OK, and the service was not good at all. I liked the way the restaurant looked and was designed, but that was... More

We made an order for pickup, ordered shrimp scampi and rigatoni bolognese. The rigatoni $15.00 was ok, i will get something else next time. Their portions are very decent. But the shrimp scampi $18.00 was outstanding! Cooked perfectly and seasoned well, will definitely order this again. Comes with bread which was very tasty and crisp. A little pricey but worth...

There were 7 of us for dinner. The younger ones who had a variety of the burgers said they were very good. Fish and fries were good but Claddagh is much better. The two had salads said they were bland. We really like Charlston's, there frequently, just not such a good experience this time for $ 150.00 with tip.

My wife's Chicken Piccata was excellent, loaded with veggies, capers, and lemony tang. My beef tips were tender, but way too salty. Good mashed potatoes helped cut the brine. Manager also hurt rating. Stopped to ask about the food just after my wife took a bite. Don't ask you customers about the food when their eating!!!!! Worse, he barely stuck... More

This place serves large portions of solid family-style food. The dining room is dark, and not very appealing. The food is good, if you're looking for something your Grandma made for you.

This place has a huge menu with not a lot of food choices in each category. They will not allow you to remove things from certain dishes because they pre-prep it and mixed it all up. If you allergic to tomatoes you cannot get the shrimp scampi pasta. Most of the menu items were really expensive. That waiters were fine,... More
