Charleston's is a great change from the chain restaurants. The portions are big and everything was freshly cooked. We had chicken Parmesan which consisted of two walnut encrusted breasts with angel hair pasta and a mozzarella/tomato salad and the second meal was baby back ribs which were so tender they fell off the bone. The ribs came with two sides,... More

Great selection of meals on the menu. The service was fantastic. You need to share the entrees since they are very large. We shared the Chicken Parmesan and it was sufficient. Ample parking in lot. Good value for your dollar

Went here about 4 on a Saturday, easy to get in at that time. Such a great menu, variety abounds. I chose chicken parmesan and got 2 large, moist pieces. Dinner partner opted for Rueben and the sandwich was stacked with corned beef. No loud music blaring away here really made for a relaxing meal. Seems hard to find places... More

Charleston's is a very comfortable, slightly upscale restaurant in the midrange price. They have a variety of salads - more than you can eat for lunch and delightful entrees ranging from steak to fish to chicken. It has a quiet atmosphere great for business deals and date night. The service is excellent as is the service staff.

We went here for lunch a few days ago. Our server brought our lunch to us and within two minutes came back to our table with the bill. She said " no hurry, whenever you are ready". That did not sit well with us and when she was passing our table, my husband told her to please pick up the... More

Vacation dinners out, always tough to please everyone. Pork Chops great. Bread was awesome. Ribs very saucy (2 of our group loved them, 2 didn't), salads were great, key lime pie fantastic. Brad our server was really attentive. Would go again.

Great service and food at reasonable price point. Portions are rather large so beware! Was very convenient to nearby hotel.

Took customers here based upon the positive TA reviews and was. It disappointed. As others have said, the service is great as well as the food. You really get an affordable but nice dining experience. The steak was superb, but their French dip falls short to Houston's. Highly recommend and would definitely return.

We pulled into Charleston's on a whim after driving around aimlessly to see the area. You never know what to expect when you do that but wow this was a great choice that we stumbled upon. We compared this to a much better and nicer version of Outback or Longhorn Steakhouse. I had the Chicken Club and my wife had... More
