Description: Right in the middle of Branson’s famous Highway 76 Strip sits a locally owned steakhouse and microbrewery. Since 1999, Charlie's Steak, Ribs & Ale has been serving up sizzling steaks and other meals made with our family ingredients and seasonings. In 2002, we started a microbrewery in our home, which soon turned into a popular addition to our spacious steakhouse and is the only microbrewery in Taney County! After rebuilding from the 2012 leap year Branson tornado, we came back even stronger than ever. We have daily lunch specials that include everything from Ribs, Country Fried Steak, homemade Meatloaf, Fried Chicken and more! Our dinner specials are also spectacular, featuring our most popular All You Can Eat Ribs & Catfish and range to Ribeye and NY Strip! Come be our guest and join our Charlie’s Branson family!

We stubbled on the best kept secret in Branson this evening for dinner. Food was good, service was excellent, and hospitality was superb!! We had the best Ribs (all you could eat), a few brews from their microbrewery selection & listened to wonderful entertainment.I would recommend this to anyone looking for a causal and tasty meal.

Good but not great food.
Got a 8oz sirloin for $11 - cooked just right - but thin (1/2 inch), would have preferred . thicker steak (smaller in length and width) which are usually jucier.
Service excellent and they sing to you.

We went to have lunch and our server was Russ. A very enjoyable waiter. He was on top his game with the very best service you could ever ask for and then some. Our drinks were delivered very quickly, the salad was great and we told him that we would really like to make sure the steaks were seasoned good and evidently he made sure because the steaks were really good. We go there about every Thursday but this by far was our best trip! Thanks Russ!!!

Charlie's is a wonderful place! Especially if you just want to get out of all the craziness and just have some good food with equally good beer and great service!! My husband and I went two times this trip because the staff was so nice and we had such a great time while we were there!

Make sure you tell Francois the bartender hello!!!

We ate dinner here one evening. My husband ordered the ribs and asked for potatoes and steamed veggies for his two sides. The waitress abruptly cut him off and said NOT both one or the other with a salad or slaw. He told her he would pay extra. And she said NOT both one or the other with a salad or slaw. I thought her answer was rather rude! Then when she brought his salad, she forgot his dressing. She said she would be right back with it, however, she proceeded to take other orders and clean off tables and never did bring his dressing. When he finally got his dressing the rest of us were finished with our salads, and he only got his dressing because we flagged down another waitress and she brought it. It was obvious that she forgot, but we got no apology. Again Rude! To simply admit that she forgot and say she was sorry would have went a long way with her tip! The ribs were good and reasonably priced at $16.99 for a 1/2 rack. The wine is served in tiny glasses and a little pricey. Dawn has a nice voice and I enjoyed listening to her sing. Probably will try some place different when we go back. Oh, and I called to make reservations and was asked to call back in an hour, which I did and was then told they don't take reservations!
