O Charley's has my very salad - the California Chicken Salad, which contains Romaine lettuce, spring mix, grilled chicken, strawberries, mandarin oranges, shredded carrots, dried cranberries and balsamic vinaigrette - delicious!

This place is hands down one of the best steak houses ever. I had the filet as well as the pear gorganzola salad which was out of this world. The customer service is impeccable and that are just super amazing. I would highly suggest giving them a try when you are at the casino.

Before going out to enjoy fireworks that evening, we stopped by O'Charley's . We were familiar with the brand from restaurants in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. The food and atmosphere were always great. The Lake Charles location was more subdued on this July 4 th holiday. What was disappointing was the side dish served with my entree. It... More

We were told when we were seated that they were short on servers, should have left then. Drink and appetizers did come back fast, but that was it. Waited 30 min for bread. Since bread was late so was our dinner. Another server brought it out and garlic shrimp was burnt and everything else on the plate was luke warm.... More

We love going here every time we come to Lake Charles. I wish they start franchises in Houston. Plenty options on the menu and the drinks are great. The bread in my opinion is the main attraction, but you can't go wrong here. Reasonably priced

My family and I have eaten at O Charley's on many occasion. It is a great place, no matter the number, or age, of the family members. Also, it is a good place to meet friends. We meet a couple there about once every other month. The food is good and the variety is even better. The waiters and waitresses... More

Great AYCE soup & salad option for lunch, several soups and salads to pick from or have 1 of each, very busy but short wait. Will be back for dinners.

We were seated as soon as we arrived. The staff all seemed to be very friendly, but our waiter was forgetful, and very slow. He was so slow, that we had to get our dinner to go so we could make it to the show on time, even though we had an hour and a half to eat.
