Charley G's Seafood Grill Ratings and Reviews
I drove 130 miles each way [Covington, La. home] to take my wife for a date night on her Birthday. I was a regular at the Metairie, La location for many years and so I wanted her to experience my favorite restaurant ever. Boy, they did not let me down on her special day, food and drinks were A+ and the service was great, place looked great and they even gave her a Birthday card signed by the entire dining staff. What a great place to spend a nice date night. I love Charley G's. and wish that they were not 130 miles from our home. Go and see what I think is a truly great place.
To celebrate my birthday and my Sis visiting from out of town I selected Charlie G's. In making a reservation (they can get quite busy after 7pm) they asked if it was an occasion and I just mentioned my birthday. When we arrived, there was a Birthday Card on the table that all employees signed and shiny sprinkles. Plus they paid my dessert. It was a great experience and everyone was nice and tentative without being bothersome. Perfect!
The special event of the night was an Anniversary Celebration. It was great to have the table decorated for the occasion, in addition to all of the staff, from the hostess to the manger, wish us Happy Anniversary. The food was great across the board - starting with the sampler appetizer, to the entrée, and finishing off with dessert.
Had a great night. Food was excellent until the desert (hence the four starts for the food). Desert was definitely microwaved to be heated up. It was scalding when it came to the table. Kind of put a bad spin on what was a great dinner. The steaks we had were perfect. The seasoned grill and char- taste transmitted to the steak which made them some of the best steaks I've had in Lafayette. The accompanying lobster was tough and slightly over done.
All in all, a good night, great drinks and excellent ambience.
Won't let the above hold us bad from going back.
This restaurant used to be my favorite for special occasions. Although most of the food was as good as I remembered, I find the younger wait staff leaves much to be desired for the prices charged. Our waiter forgot our salad, forgot my husband's tea, and the other staffer put the dessert tray down and then asked if we wanted to hear about the dessert. The front of this house used to be run a bit more professional. Maybe because we are an older couple, we weren't treated as well as in past visits.
Husband's birthday. He ordered a rib eye steak, medium. The steak was mostly gristle and fat and was rare. What I would call raw, barely seared on the outside. I tried to get him to send it back, but he refused. I am sure I'll never get him back in Charley G's for a long, long time.
Thankfully my meal was excellent. I had the scallops.
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.
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.
