Description: Charley's Steak House has created a unique dining experience unsurpassed in the industry. The restaurant's namesake, Charley Woodsby, co-founder of the Red Lobster chain, was honored by the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association with the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006. After selling Red Lobster to General Mills in 1970, Charley and his son Ron Woodsby developed Talk of the Town Restaurants - the corporate parent to Charley's Steak House. Over the years the Woodsby's have become "beef aficionados" with a steadfast formula for success: feature only Midwest grain-fed USDA Prime & Choice beef, age on-site for 4 to 6 weeks, and have management cut meat daily and season for 30 hours to create distinctive flavor. The steak is then flame-grilled over a 1200° open pit, fueled with a combination of Florida citrus & oak wood. This carefully monitored process provides for quality, tenderness and a tantalizing taste that elevates Charley's to the ultimate steakhouse experience. Since its inception, Charley's Steak House has prided itself on being a traditional steakhouse. But with the rise in number of savvy diners came the need to evolve the definition of 'steakhouse'. Instituting a corporate chef and placing managing chefs at each location, Charley's has advanced into a traditional steakhouse with culinary flair featuring chef-driven appetizers and entrees as well as established menu items.

This is our favorite restaurant in Orlando. We have been to two different locations, International drive and the one close to the airport with the shuttle on Orange Blossom trail. Both were outstanding. The service was excellent and we always felt like we were the only table in the restaurant and we were not!

The beef is well aged and the seafood is fresh. I come from Alberta, so it is pretty hard to impress me with USDA beef, but Charley's accomplishes this.

Allow for a lengthy dinner, not that the service is slow, but rather that you can savour the wine,appetizers, entres, and of course the amazing desserts (they are huge and totally enough to share).

Thanks for an amazing meal again. We will be back at the end of the month!

Steaks are what you go here for but the crab cakes are delicious. Everything is "a la carte" so if you're looking for a cheap meal, this is not the place to go, but for a special night out, we love Charleys.

The food here was absolutely extrvagant. By far, the best steak I've ever had. Although my only worry was the expense. It was definitely worth it though. Best meal on my trip.

Great food, great staff. We were a large group and they managed it as though we were a table of 4. Managers stopped by to check on everything. Entire group of 50 left happy.

My husband and I decided to visit here while on our trip for a slightly more upmarket dinner. When we went in the smell of meat hit us. Its really pungent. We were seated quickly and given our menu's. As someone who cant eat red meat or fish, there was not 1 thing on the menu that I could eat. The menu was really quite expensive with some options costing over $100 for a main. We ended up leaving and going elsewhere.

I'm sure it would be great if the whole party ate red meat though and doesnt mind the smell, we have friends who love the place - which is why we decided to go and didnt bother reading the menu outside first. It just wasnt for us.
