“Food was bad, but service was good”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

We stopped here late in the evening about an hour before closing on our way through after a vacation.
Husband had ribs - they were dry and he says not that great, could've made better at home.
I had a burger and fries - this could be one of the worst burgers I've ever had. I'm not certain this was beef, and tasted closer to a soy burger from the old high school cafeteria. The fries were good overall however. It may be too much info, but let's just say this meal did not 'stay with me'' after about an hour.

The waitress was nice, however, and very conversational. She seemed to be a hard worker and made sure that drinks were filled and we had what we needed. Offered her a fair tip as the poor taste of the meal was not her fault.
Regardless, we will not be back.

“very good”
Reviewed May 20, 2011

We went to O'Charley's on a recommendation from a relative. He said the chips were delicious.
We enjoyed our dinner and didn't need dessert. My steak was very good, the staff waited for me to cut into make sure it was cooked correctly. Daughter got the fish and chips and said they were very good. Our server was very nice and we didn't have to wait long for our food. It was a good place to eat.
The chips were good too! The music piped through the restaurant was very good.

“Very slow service, average food”
Reviewed March 24, 2011

I thought we'd give O'Charley's another chance having eaten at one only 3 times in the past and not impressed any of those times. Let's just say at least O'Charley's is consistent. Average food and horrible service. Arrived about 9pm, plenty of time to get served and eat before their 10pm closing time. We waited 10 min to be seated, had to get our own menus and didn't get our food until 9:45. We just took it to go at that point since our 18 month old boy had had enough. Not recommended!
