Description: This restaurant has been in Fort Lauderdale (both locations) for over 30 years (maybe even 40). I've visited many, many times and decided to write a review. I'm very surprised that there are no other reviews. I did see a thread posted last year, but is now closed about this restaurant. It is a steak house, but also has very good fish, ribs and a terrific little salad bar. Many who visit are locals and come in several times a month. Many snow birds who visit when they flock down for the winter. Good early bird, and really great burgers. A very friendly staff, many of whom have been with the restaurant for 10 plus years each! Reasonable prices. Dated decor but the bar area has great big screen TVs so it works for my husband and me when we're in the area and crave a burger, steak or the ribs. Never had a bad meal. Never had bad service. Enjoy.

Reviewed July 5, 2012

My husband and I had another great meal here on June 16th. We always love the escargot appetizer followed by a wonderful Chuck Burger, mine with bacon and cheddar and his with cheddar, I know, it’s a real indulgence, but what a tasty treat! The burgers are done just right, and we always enjoy the lovely salad bar. The raisin pumpernickel bread is fantastic. We can also recommend the babyback ribs, steak and porkchops. Always just right.

Pros:
Great hostess, wait staff and bartender (hello Dawn!)
Restaurant and bar dining choices
Salad bar
Burgers, Steaks and Ribs!

Cons:
Parking can be a challenge; many spots are metered

Visit Chucks, have fun, relax and enjoy a great casual meal.

“Tasty food, great value”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

Have eaten at Chuck's many times at the Commercial Blvd. location. The 17th street location did not disappoint. Very reasonable prices and include all you can eat salad bar with dinner. Great steaks and chicken dishes.

“Good food, nice place”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

We went to Chuck's and this was a return trip for us, we have been there many times, it is great for us because my husband is a "meat & potatoes" guy and I am a vegetarian, it is not always easy to find places to accomodate both. They have a really good salad bar, many varieties of vegies on the salad bar, fresh and excellent tasting. My only grip is the size of the plates or I should say saucers. It is good if you are getting a steak and your salad is an appetizer or a side dish, but if you are eating salad bar as your entre, they should give you a bigger plate, like full size dinner plate, because otherwise you have to go back too many time to fill your coffee cup saucer in order to get a full meal.
The steaks are really good and the vegies are served plain so you can add what you want or nothing, which is a nice change. The ice tea was really good, but the glasses were tiny like juice glasses, what was that about? The service was okay, not really friendly or fast, but not bad, just typical south florida- "ya ya, I will get to you in my own good time, get you what you need, talk to you as little as possible, and move on to the next annoying tourist"- but that has been typical of most of the south florida, over tourist abused areas.
The restaurant itself is nice inside, more upscale than not, semi-dark, and relatively quick service for how busy they were, which was very busy.
The parking is somewhat of an issue, not much and difficult to get in and out of, but most of south florida tourist areas are like that.
Overall, I would definately recommend it, the food is good, the quality is good, the price is not bad for a steak house, and the service is satisfactory.
