Visited O'Charley's in Smyrna, TN on a Sunday morning. We were there for Sunday Brunch. A little disappointing to say the least. My eggs Benedict were very plain on the plate, no fruit, no decorations and they included a slice of tomato under the egg -far from required and alters the taste. To me, eggs Benedict are a classic and... More

We have O'Charley's in our home area but have never eaten at one. On a recent long car drive, stopped for the night, and this one was next to our motel. Friday night, crowded, poor service. Slow to get food, and slow to clean the table. I ordered club sandwich; bread was soggy. Pecan Pie for dessert was ice cold.

It wasn’t necessarily bad – as a matter of fact my dish, Tuscan Chicken was really good. Took quite a while to order and receive our food. Wife is trying to eat healthier, somewhat gluten free, but there weren’t many choices. She ordered steak with a baked potato and baby green beans. We waited about 20 minutes after ordering. Server...

It's been a year since we last went in due to management change and poor service. Nothing has really changed at all. The hostess never once said a word other than "Party of 2" and that's it. Started to the bar area and asked to please not be seated there and it seemed to irritate him. Waitress was pretty good,... More

Ordered Honey Drizzled Chicken. Only got one small chicken breast. Quantity is nothing like what is pictured or described. Picture must be taken with chicken on saucer! Not worth the price. Service was poo, distracted. Tomato basil soup too spicey.

The problem with O'Charleys is you may or may not get what you ordered. Seriously every time I visit this restaurant I have to check to see I get what asked. Food looks good but sometimes we make special request because of food allergies but at O'Charleys they give it to you anyway. Just be careful you check. Someone needs... More

This place is right across the parking lot of our hotel so super convenient. We were seated right away but the service was a bit slow for my liking. My wife had their Bayou Shrimp Pasta which was good. I had they Garlic Filet with green beans. It tasted ok.Our youngest daughter had their kids junior chicken strips (only two... More

Early supper. Steak and salmon, and fried shrimp dinners. No wait seating. Server was very friendly and patient while we looked over menu. Everything was fine until I noticed how brown the fried shrimp was. I tried to bite but they were way over-fried. Hard as rocks so I broke off alot of the breading. Shrimp was very dry no... More

The Nashville hot chicken sandwich is great! I do enjoy their food. Not too pricey and plenty to choose from.

Food is always good. I shake me head at the slow and unresponsive service. To get better service, find seat at bar, if room with their drinking regulars. Advertised prime rib weekend special seems and looks much smaller than in pictures. Pie on any other than free pie Wed. is served very cold to frozen.
