“Best Steak...hands down!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Hubby and I decided to give this place a whirl after eating at all the regular chain steakhouses in town. We didn't expect much but were pleasantly delighted! The steak was no frills...just a nice piece of meat with some salt and pepper - perfectly grilled! The steak was juicy, tender, and flavorful!! Best steak I've had in a long time!!! The chain steak restaurants can't compare to this!!!

“Great place, great steak!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

Friendly and intimate, this restaurant is a wonderful oasis in a town full of mediocre chain restaurants. If you're looking for the typical "value menu" place, don't come here. If you want a superb steak, cooked how you like it, with friendly service and nice ambience, here it is! You get what you pay for, so don't expect bargain basement prices for top drawer service and food.

“Good Steaks, but very expensive”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We ate here with a coworker who loves Carl and 'Chelle's; the food was quite good, the atmosphere elegant and the service above average. The restaurant is small and intimate with candles on the tables and a cozy atmosphere for couples. The staff is very small, I only saw 2 in the dining area and 1 additional in the rear. Carl and 'Chelle's does offer a full service bar. We were seated by the server, she took our drink orders and told us the chef would bring out the meat for our selection; we have never ate at a restaurant when the raw meat is brought to the dining area and cut fresh, a unique experience. Carl and 'Chelle's is a steak or steak restaurant; you may choose the ribeye ( 8, 10, or 12 oz and up) or the filet mignon ( 8 oz.) The meat was succulent and tender, cooked to perfection for my husband and his friend (medium rare.) I enjoyed the salad and baked potato a la carte. The restaurant offers a salad bar, steamed onions (luscious) and a choice of baked potato or twice baked potato with grilled bread. Carl and 'Chelle's offers each table a wonderful port wine cheese spread with a variety of crackers; it is delicious. The salad bar is extensive for a small restaurant, and included smoked oysters, a new experience for me. The steaks are quite expensive and you can expect to pay $30 per person, easy.

“Its ok, but WAY TO EXPENSIVE!!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

The food is good, the atmosphere is good. But it is WAY over Priced, and the service or lack there of, left a lot to be desired. With a $62 dinner ticket for 2 people (NO Alcohol on ticket, just 2 meals) I do not expect to make my own salad, have empty tea glasses or wait till potato almost cold for butter.
