Went to this restaurant twice within three weeks. Both times we had to wait an unreasonable amount of time before our server came to our table . The first time when she came told us she just walked in and was told that she had a table and seemed mad about it the entire time. I thought ok one bad... More

First I'll mention my server so I don't forget. Caley was a delight, very attentive and friendly - seems to love what she does. I chose this place to change it up, I wanted a steak and Caesar salad and that's what I got. My Louisiana Cajun steak was prepared perfectly, served tight off grill. Excellent cut of meat, flavorful... More

Very good service and friendly staff. Food was quick and delicious. The entrance can be a little tricky to get into so just pay attention and you will get to it. (It will be worth it). Check this one out!!

The food is usually ok just need more servers on the weekends and on free pie Wednesday. Service has really been horrible lately and lack of compassion comes with it

The O'Charley's in our neighborhood got so bad it closed and reopened a couple months later under a local name. We thought maybe this one would be back to their old standards......nope.....guess it's the whole chain. I tried prime rib....incredible bad cut, tough, slapped on table, waiter had an attitude.....really bad experience that was not made up by the yeast... More

I always have dinner here when I travel to Smyrna for my job once a month. I enjoy the baby back ribs, chicken tenders, chicken pot pie, loaded baked potato, and hamburgers.

We arrived with a party of 9 and were seated right away. BIG improvement from the last visit. The food was fair this time. the potato soup was overly salty and my house salad was mostly croutons. It was a mixed reaction from the group on the food quality.

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...
