Nice wait staff, but food was nothing special. Varied menu, but really there was nothing outstanding about the food. I remember leaving disappointed in the quality of the food.

O'Charley's is a well trusted brand 7 this location did not disappoint. Stopped here after long road trip from San Antonio for cocktails & dinner. Very friendly waiter & even though it was busy, our food came out quickly & very good.

This was probably the worst visit to a restaurant I've had with my family in 5 years or better. Our server was horrible the food was lukewarm at best. My 3 year Olds pizza was all dough thr 1st time, barely cooked the 2nd. If I could give a zero rating and still write a review I would.

Just an average food chain. Staff very friendly , food average. Had a long wait a lunchtime . Seems to be popular with locals . Serves burgers- salads- few different other dishes - tenders. I probably wouldn't go back due to me not being a big fan of franchises --- -( not Louisiana style seafood)---

Get the baked potato soup! Everything is delicious but try the crispy chicken salad. The rolls are bomb! There's some great mixed drinks at the bar!

Stopped here on the way back from Casino to our hotel. Nice menu with lots of options to choose from. I had the fish and chips from the $9.99 menu and it was very good. Fries were a bit greasy, but edible. I upgraded for $3.99 to a salad and a piece of pie. I had the gooey caramel and... More
