“Good "Chain Restaurant" Food in Nice Atmosphere”
Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

This is a restaurant with a menu and "setting" along the lines of an Applebee"s. Wide variety of food choices and done generally quite well. It is certainly not a "high end" restaurant, but the service was fast and the food well done and tasty. There is a bar, and some TV's in the general dining area, yet not quite a "sports bar" feel to it. Loud, but not uncomfortably so, and you can still carry on a conversation while eating. The eating area is nicely divided with both tables and booths. Probably one of the better choices in "suburban" Gainesville from what I could see. Large lunch and dinner crowds for both days when I was in the area on business. Prices are very reasonable.

Thank Frank T

“Nice place to eat with the family!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

After a fun filled day in Helen, GA we were staying at the hotel next door to O' Charley s. The yeast rolls were great. This is a nice place to eat with the family. Casual dining and kid friendly where you can enjoy a variety of beers, chicken tenders, and great soups. We will return to this restaurant!

OMG! there steaks are awesome. I also like there salad dressing, the "HONEY MUSTARD". I could drink it instead of being a lady and just have it on my salad, it's that good...

“I mistakedly thought my previous bad experience at this chain was a fluke!!”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Terrible food, pasta overcooked in a pasta dish!! My husband's salmon had a definite OLD flavor! Service was not bad but when I complained about the pasta, I got an "oh really"!

“Friendly, casual dining with great food”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

We've eaten at the Gainesville O'Charleys for several years now. Our favorites on the menu are the ribs, loaded potato soup, chicken tenders, salads, and the wonderful hot rolls. The hot yeast rolls are the best I've ever had in a restaurant.

The service by Allen the bartender was efficient and professional. The restaurant is well kept and clean. No problems with refills on bread or beverages. Menu items to suit young and old, singles and groups. The Gainesville O'Charleys is the best in the franchise in Georgia.
