“Very good steak!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Some reviewers have said that Carl and Chelle's is too expensive. Well, it's not cheap, but the steaks are excellent quality and cooked as ordered. In my opinion, it beats the chain steakhouses hands down both in quality and flavor.of the meat. The dining room is fairly small and intimate, and the service is prompt and friendly. This restaurant was recommended to us by staff at the motel where we stayed, and we were not disappointed. The only thing I could have asked for was a wine list with some of my favorite labels! All in all, we felt that our meal was excellent, and when we come this way again we will stop in again.

“Limited, but Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I met friends here for dinner, and this was my third trip to this restaurant. It truly has not missed a beat. The staff is personable and friendly along with exceptional customer service. The food selection is limited, but the quantity is sufficient and the quality is excellent.

“Very Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

We had a great experience while eating here. Service was prompt and the food was great. Yes it was expensive but I'd rather pay the $30 -mentioned previously- (which included dessert by the way) for a steak that was cooked properly and cut the right size. If I go to Logan's/Outback/Texas my steaks are NEVER the size they are supposed to be and I'm paying almost the same price without getting dessert. Yes you make your own salad - big deal. Why wouldn't you want to make it the way you want it rather than get something from the other steakhouses that one person at your table has tons of cheese and no bacon while someone else has all onions and hardly any of the other stuff...seriously. The steak is seasoned minimally but it worked and a good steak doesn't need more than salt & pepper. Definitely can't go here everyday but it's nice for a treat.

“Best Steak...hands down!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
