Charley's Steak House - Tampa
Charley's Steak House is owned by the Woodsby family and has operated in Florida since 1974. Charley's serves only three-year-old USDA prime and choice Angus steers, aging them four to six weeks for tenderness & flavor and hand-cutting the steaks daily to ensure consistent quality. The steaks are then flame-broiled over Florida citrus and oak wood in a custom-built pit at 1200(o) searing in the tantalizing taste that has made Charley's the #1 steakhouse in America every year since 2007! Charley's philosophy of providing only the finest extends from the kitchen to the wine cellar. The wine list approaches 1000 selections from scores of exceptional wineries around the globe. Charley's has been recognized with numerous awards including "Best of Award of Excellence" from Wine Spectator magazine, DiRNA and Orlando Magazine's" Best Steak House & Best Old Favorite". Charley's has been creating fans from around the world for nearly 40 years. We look forward to having you become a fan soon!
The Filet Mignon is absolutely to die for, especially with the oak grilling of the aged steak. I've been told Bern's is the best steak house in Tampa, but after visiting Charley's, one must disagree.
The young & unseasoned wait staff could have been more attentive of our needs at the table, and the atmosphere was not as elegant as Bern's... but the steak was delectable.
After being completely ignored and having poor service at Central Ave Oyster Bar in St. Petersburg, FL, Charley's was a welcome surprise. We were seated promptly and the waitress, Chennell was an expert on the menu. The steak presentation was wonderful and the salad with blue cheese crumbles was delicious. We received our food and everything was divine. The service and the food were unmatched! The prices were very expensive, but the food and the service made the price well worth it!
Excellent, excellent steaks, and everything else for that matter. Just as good as Ruth Chris, and maybe a little less expensive. I can't speak for Berns, but I would put Charleys up there at the top for Tampa, and they could hold their own in Chicago as well. I do sugggest you keep an eye on your drink prices, however. Even for an up-scale place, they were pretty high (approx $20 for a martini).
We've been to Ruth's Chris, Berns, Flemings, and The Palm in Tampa. We go back time and time again to Charley's. The best martini, hands-down, and the steak is extremely flavorful and always a great cut. We either split a filet (fabulous if really hungry, 20 oz.) or the Porterhouse and have never been disappointed. Mashed potatos and creamed spinach are great. Service is always top-notch and a special nod to the bartenders, who introduce themselves and will remember you after only a couple of visits. Highly Recommended!
For those that know and appreciate what good food is, Charleys is by far THE BEST steak house around. Prior to opening their Tampa location, we traveled all the way to Orlando to eat there. Ruth's Chris, Berns, Shulas, Outback, Seltzers, have NOTHING on this place. Don't waste your time or money venturing elsewhere. Charleys food is phenominal. and well worth the price tag.
I expected a lot more from Charley's... The steaks had a good flavor, but my date requested his cooked medium and received a well-done steak... Also, the lobster tail we ordered had to be cut with a steak knife... Again, the flavor was good, but not the tender, succulent lobster tail I expected. Also, the restaurant was extremely loud, making it difficult to enjoy conversation...
When I am looking for the best steak in town, I venture off the well travelled Howard Ave. and head to Charley's. Cooked to perfection over an open flame, they truly have the most flavorful steaks in town. Add a lobster tail, and their potato casserole, and you simply have heaven! Great wine list and wait staff. The martinis are hard to beat as well. Once again, simply the best!
