$42 for a Filet and 8 for grits. How about adding a little flavor? Steak was grainy. I ordered med-Rare.

Service, on the other hand, was impeccable. Really nice.

The duck gumbo is wonderful, and so are the pan seared scallops. Great atmosphere and first rate service.

Charley G is a great place for those romantic times and great food. The steaks were outstanding .No need for a steak knife the butter knife will do just fine. The service was fantastic and and management made sure to come to see if anything else was needed. Also a delight to see birthday fetti spread on table.

Used Open Table last minute reservation for birthday dinner. Table was ready when we arrived . Had a very friendly and warm greeting from all the employees. Table was decorated for birthday. Food and Service was excellent. Have always enjoyed going to Charley G's since they have been open. Atmosphere is great.

I have been a regular patron since Charley Goodson opened Charley G's many years ago.

The food is excellent. The service is personal and timely. The atmosphere is what one would expect in a Goodson eatery. I give it 5 ⭐️!

This restaurant always delivers. Busy Saturday night and the service was outstanding as usual. Jean Paul our waiter helped make our date night very enjoyable. The escargot appetizer was tasty and followed by the Romaine wedge. Couldn't miss with the crispy duck and surf & turf for the main course. Come to think of it we have never had a bad meal at this restaurant which keeps us coming back.

Four stars for the food because I thought the rizzuto that came with the clams was too hot with jalapeno peppers for me. I should have asked for another size dish.

As always the food and service was first class!! Great wine selection along with really creative "Specials" off the menu. Although the piano player was a little noisy overall a fun evening. Highlight of the night was Kaylee and the dessert tray, supremely delivered with passion and flair.

Charley G's remains one of my favorite fine dining restaurants in this area. Chef Holly continues to come up with creative additions to the menu. They make seasonal changes to the menu and you can always count on a special preparation of a fish entree at night. Many times I don't even look at the menu but go straight to the special. It never disappoints. The service is outstanding and the live piano music really adds to the ambiance. Additionally, the do special events with small plates at wine about once a month which is a great value. Love Charley Gs!
