Charley G's Seafood Grill Ratings and Reviews
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!
The waiter was not very attentive. I felt as if I saw his assistant more than him.
My main complaint is that we were seated in the bar area at a small booth even though I had reserved a table over a month before. The booth table was low compared to a regular table, or at least it felt that way since no less than 7 inches away from my table was a party at the bars rear ends. Our waiter had to peak around the edge of the booth just to introduce himself. Not the experience I desired on Valentine's Day. Especially when I reserved well in advance and as they seated us in the bar area I noticed plenty of empty tables in the dining area.
There was live music in the bar from a piano player/singer which was nice, but it inhibited conversation between my wife and I at times due to the volume.
In short. Food was delicious. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. And the drinks were good as well. The bourbon selection alone is impressive. Ambience for where we were was less than ideal. If you go here make sure to request to not be seated at the bar.
Valentine's Night was indeed special. The fixed price menu provided a nice variety of choices in all of threee courses. We enjoyed grilled Chilean Sea Bass over macque choux with fried okra and grilled fish over tasso grits with fired oysters. Excellent house salad and cheesecake which was not quite up to the standards of the first two courses. Attentive service. We frequent many New Orleans restaurants and Charlie G's would fit in with some of the better ones in the Big Easy.
Charlie G's is my favorite place to go for any occasion that requires amazing food, creative menu items that aren't too wild to pronounce, knowledgeable and friendly servers never too much in a rush to help you or answer your questions! Justin and the staff at Charlie G's make you feel as though you are having dinner at home, only better. From the moment you step in the door, they are always welcoming, always 'on'! Holly is an amazing chef and runs a great open kitchen!! I love watching what she creates! Thank you for yet another amazing dinner and get together for our large group of family and friends!
Loved the béchamel crab cake with root vegetable hash! One crab cake was plenty as it was rich but delicious and only $14 which is a phenomenal price for this restaurant. Turtle cheesecake was good but not great. Overall--great date night.
As always Charley G's does not disappoint !! Atmosphere, food and service were of the highest order. I had the fish special which was delectable, my wife had the petit filet which was fantastic. Overall it was a great date nite.
Charley G's is always one of my wife and I's favorite. Food is always fresh and creative as they seasonally change the menu. The entire staff are very knowledgeable and enjoy focusing on detail. In addition their wine and drink list is outstanding and enjoyable to choose from.
