I came here with a large group based on a recommendation from an associate. The service was wonderful. The soup was outstanding and the steak was perfect. We'll be back!

Best prime rib ever and we have tried a lot of places serving prime rib. Tender, flavorful, excellent dinner. Service was great, atmosphere and decor was great. Will recommend to all. They serve prime rib every night not just on weekends like most places. Give them a try, you will be glad you did!!!!

The staff were very sweet and attentive, but that's the only positive thing I would say about this place. The portion sizes seemed irregular. For example, my mom's chicken dish came with tons of food but my sister ordered a different chicken dish that was quite small and there wasn't a huge price difference. The drinks were not very well... More

Great place lunch or dinner, hard to beat their prime rib and they do a very nice lunch Buffett that changes daily. Service is, maybe, the best in town. The servers seem a little more experienced than just having the local college kids. Be prepared that it does have a bit of an older crowd, so if your looking for... More

My wedding party, family, in-laws, fiance, and myself went to Charley's for our rehearsal dinner for our wedding.

First off, let me start by saying that the service was excellent. Our waitress was extremely nice and very attentive (without being too attentive). We had the steak and shrimp Friday special. The price point wasn't too bad at around $17, and you received a 6 oz rib eye, a skewer of shrimp, wild rice and a vegie with a... More

The worst prime rib I've had in years. It was tough. For a 16 ounces cut it had about 6 ounces of fat. We had to ask for au jus, but was given drippings. Garlic mashed potatoes were made with instant potatoes. No vegetables and had to pay extra for salad which was good since dressings seemed homemade. Waitstaff was... More
