Description: Charley's Steak House Aged Steaks & Market Fresh Fish is truly the most award-winning restaurant in Tampa! Among its many accolades, Charley's has been voted one of the Top Ten Best Steakhouses in America, Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence and Sante Awards for High Level of Professional Service & Culinary Cuisine. Our USDA Prime & Choice steaks are aged on the premises for four to six weeks and are hand-cut daily by management to ensure consistent quality. The steaks are then flame-grilled over our unique 1200° Florida citrus and oak wood fueled custom pit. To increase flavor, Charley's cuts all their steaks "on the bone" because their bone releases flavor and helps the meat retain its natural juices during the cooking process. A lively and energetic lounge, chef-driven daily specials, signature steaks, an award-winning wine list and top notch service enhances each guest's dining experience to the fullest!

It's about the steak! We visited Charley's based on the great reviews. When we first walked in, I thought we had made a big mistake. The decor is dated, and things are a bit dusty. Boy, were we glad that we stayed. The steak is some of the best that we've had in a steakhouse. Prime cuts of aged beef, with a citrus smoke flavor...unique and very tasty!

The prices are a bit more modest than other premium steakhouses and include a salad. The sides are mediocre, but it's all about the steak. The wine list was extensive, and the staff is knowledgeable to make suggestions. This staff is attentive.

I would highly recommend this place, for the steak and wine selection.

“Not too bad”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

The food was good I expected the price's being that it's a steak house but I still feel it's a bit too much seeing how the restaurant could use some updates but service was good didn't have too look around for some one and my cup was never empty which are the two big pluses when it comes to service!

“Not worth the price”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We went there to celebrate a birthday. Seated promptly. Nice ambience overall, but it was rather loud in our seating area -- hard to hear across the booth table. We ordered drinks for our birthday celebration, and found out that they don't offer the drink on their menu anymore. Strange. Then we ordered an appetizer that they came back and said they were "out of". The bison ribeye was good, but the bison filet was not presented well and didn't taste that good. We repeatedly asked for more of this... more of that... as the service wasn't as good as we expected. I prefer Flemings or Ruths Chris over this place.

“Excellent steak house”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

I have been to many steakhouses over the years throughout the United States Charley's is one of the best! We had a server named Frias who knew his craft and knew the restaurant and all about their cuts of meat they were serving he did an excellent job and I would advise a trip to this restaurant anytime you're in the Tampa area. Ask for Frias the server.

“Good steak”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

One of better steak houses in Tampa. Pretty good steak and sides with pretty reasonable prices. They explain how everything is produced from the farm to the kitchen which is pretty cool. The service is very good with a friendly staff. Definitely one of my top 3 steakhouses.
