“Expected far more for an old time favorite”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Charlies has been a go to steak place as long as I can remember. Last visit it really fell flat. The steak seemed less than restaurant quality and had very little taste. At the prices, I hesitate to give Charlies another chance.

“Great local institution”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This restaurant has been here forever and is loved by locals. Great steaks and great local atmosphere (i.e., no tourists). Only criticism is the lack of vegetable choices.

“Great Steak”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

What a great little place, from the ice cold iceberg wedge with blue cheese to the onion straws, creamed spinach and homemade ice cream everything including the steak was great!!!!! There is now menus just charming waiters reciting the choices. Great find!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic sums it up. Steaks prepared as ordered, the potatoes au gratin were so delicious. You will be so stuffed coming out of here they will need to roll you out in a wheel barrow! Skip dessert there and go to the actual Angelo Brocato's. Thanks Claire and team for a great dining experience!

“Reccomended”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

As frequent British visitors to New Orleans, we were sad that Charlies closed after Katrina and delighted to find through the internet that it has now reopened. Things have changed a little from Frankies and Miss Dotty's time, but very little. The steaks are still good and still served on tin plates, hold your napkin up when they come near to deflect the spits!! They now have a bar and a wine list, which goes further than the choice of just red or white.
The atmosphere is still the same and is a fun night out, thanks to the waiters. Don't expect posh, the salad is a cos lettuce chopped in half, but the food is great and the servings American size, the starter of onion rings will bear that out.
If you haven't tried it, do next time you are in New Orleans, you will not be disappointed!
