Went for lunch with co workers. I have not been here since it first opened several years ago. They has bunches of "new" items on their menu, so I decided to try the low country shrimp. It was not bad, just OK. Service was GREAT! But still not impressed with the food.

We travel between homes in the east and west during seasonal migration. Two years ago on one trip we stopped at this restaurant for dinner. It was terrible - service slow and inefficient and food that had to be sent back twice because it was ill-prepared (e.g. Raw salmon then dry, rubbery salmon). On this trip we decided to try... More

who doesn't like the rolls??? those are good! The food over all is hit or miss . The took the steak off the $9.99 menu and that's was a bummer so I got a club sandwich instead. My side of sweet potato was ice cold so.....the service was good though!

We visited on a Sunday evening. I had the Prime Rib with mashed potatoes and a Caesar salad (2 sides included with the entree). The beef was very good. The salad was very good also. The yeast rolls are excellent. I guess they are the same in all the restaurants... My wife had the fish and chips. Not so good.... More

I haven't been to an Ocharleys in a long time but shame on me! The food was grrrrreat! I had the Nashville hot chicken sandwich minus the hot. My guest had a juicy cheeseburger. The yeast rolls... Piping hot and melt in your mouth. Server was genuine and provided good service.

We went here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The waitress was outstanding and came back often to give us refills. The biggest surprise was our food. We were expecting the "same old" chain pre-prepared meals but our food actually tasted freshly prepared. Chances are it wasn't but at least it tasted that way. We will be back.

Love eating here...hard to go back since mom passed away because I can see her out of the corner of my eye at our usual table. That's how much she loved the place.

We have eaten here and gotten exceptional food and great service and we have eaten here and gotten bright red lipstick smears on my husband's coffee cup..so it's a flip of the coin..

Your booths are so uncomfortable my friend and I almost left. We switched to.a table with chairs. You also need to hire some bus boys. The place was so busy the waitresses did not have time to clear tables and wait on customers so our view was a table loaded with dirty dishes. I don't expect tht when I go... More

We arrived around 5:00 on a Thursday and were seated immediately. Waiter was at our table just after we sat and took our drink orders. We were going to order 3-4 appetizers when he suggested we could get 2 with the same items. The sizes were perfect and he saved us money. Entrees were as expected. Noise level was not... More
