“Lots of Choices -- Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

We are Hendersonville residents and we generally eat Sunday dinner out. O'charleys (there is no apostrophe in their name on the sign) is across town from us but we end up there frequently. Restaurants seem to come and go in this town, but they have been there for several years.

Salads, pasta dishes, steak, shrimp, Sunday brunch or a tasty sandwich, they have it all. The menu is large and it changes frequently. Their "Overloaded potato soup" is delicious but certainly not cholesterol free. As a bypass surgery recipient I enjoy it now and then.

Their entree salads are particularly great, a California salad with bleu cheese crumbles, dried cranberries, candied pecans, lettuce and one of their selection of dressings makes a great meal.

There is a wait sometimes, particularly for Sunday dinner at 12:30 or 1:00.

The down side has to be variable service. On a couple of occasions the wait for the food was VERY long. A few times food has not been cooked as requested, i.e. a steak cooked less than asked for. When it came back it was quite overcooked. Bad day for the chef, perhaps... Service and food preparation has been improving.

The wait staff is quite attentive. Management is sympathetic in case of a bad experience.

Overall the atmosphere is pleasant for family dining. There is a bar area.

“Better choices to be had”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2012

food is marginal and the cleanliness of the restaurant is not the best. For the area, there are much better places to try

“A great overall place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

The rolls are great! I like a restaraunt that has a bar. Best waitress in the place is Sam. The food is great as well.

“Best little secret in Hendersonville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2010

In the past 6 months Ive eaten at O'Charley's about 7 times - and have not had one disappointment. The food is consistently EXCELLENT. My son sometimes fusses with his meal and the wait staff always offer to bring something different - even though there is nothing wrong with what's on our table. I always order one of the salads and my husband one of the steak or fish dinners. Everyone leaves full and happy - and bill is never OTT. I whole heartedly recommend this restaurant.
