Amazing food! We had the T-bone with Shrimp wrapped in bacon, and it was very good. Waiter was great (ask for Calem). He kept our drinks full, checked on us regularly without being intrusive. Beautiful restaurant. Wish we could have eaten outside, on the patio, but it was too hot that night. It is a bit pricey, but the food... More

The food was just average. No wow factor. Service was fine. I was particularly disappointed that I could not substitute the carb with an alternative. It couldn't be that difficult. They just can't be bothered.

$20 Alaskan king crab lunch was delicious. Had a turtle cheese cake for desert. Excellent service from Kiki and staff. If you order desert, know that it serves two. I couldn't finish mine. If your only negative is the servings are bigger than you expected... It's a good day. I'll visit again and recommend to anyone passing thru Omaha.

The service was fantastic, but the fish was just eh. We skipped the fish fry to visit Charlie's. We won't make that mistake again. My grouper didn't look like any grouper I'd ever had (it's my fave, so I've had a lot) - thin, wimpy fillets. It was over-seasoned, which was added to the weirdness of the dinner. Husband's breaded... More

A broad menu provides a lot of selection. We had several different entrees and all were very good. Service was great and prices are reasonable. The cheesecake is the best.

Came to Charlie's about a year ago and our experience was not great... But we gave it another try... BAD IDEA!!! Waited 20 minutes for our Martinis because the server said they were out of Martini glasses. Looked around at empty tables with empty Martini glasses, but OK!!! Waited 30 minutes to order our food, our waiter was attending to... More

We have eaten at Charlie's quite a few times throughout the years. They used to have fantastic food and service until about 5 years ago. Tried it again last night (not by choice) and found it to still be a disappointment. I find that it takes forever to order, get glasses refilled and then to get your food. Seems they... More

Went there on a date night with my husband, and the food was absolutely incredible! Service was quick and friendly as well. We ordered the Lobster Havarti as an appetizer, it was great for 2 people. I ordered the Lobster Alfredo and it was probably one of the best I've eaten. The alfredo sauce was perfect! My husband got the... More

I had their lunch special, a shaved prime rib sandwich. WOW! Don't order it unless you're really hungry.The prime rib was delicious and piled high. The wife had the key lime cheesecake for dessert. The potion was huge and tasted yummy (she let me have a bite). The service was excellent and the prices very reasonable.
