Two of us went for dinner. Nice wine list. We began with a nice salad with a delicious pecan vinegarette dressing. Then we ordered our entrees: one- a lobster pasta which my date said was very good. I had a filet steak cooked to perfection- melted in my mouth. My side was grits which were also very good. We shared... More

Food, atmosphere and service is GREAT. People love this place for dates and celebrating anniversaries. Dress accordingly or you will feel out of place. Drinks are also good and the bar is nice with piano music very often and not to loud.

We were there with about 40 folks and they had a preset menu...so take that into consideration.....the service was spectacular, the gumbo was spicy and the crab cakes very good. The atmosphere was very nice but not too stuffy. I could see going there for a variety of events, or even with kids at a high end

We went there to celebrate my son's birthday and had reservations. Upon arriving, we were seated directly and a waiter filled our water glasses. After waiting 10-12 minutes, we still did not have a waiter address our table--not even to see if we wanted drinks. My wife finally flagged down a passing waiter. It seems that no waiter had been...

My wife and I dined there recently. The food was great, as was the service. We had eaten at one in Alabama and found the place friendly, waiters on time, and food quite tasty.

Cant say anything bad about the food. Every single dish was really nice. Unfortunately the place was crowded and the kitchen could not get up with the orders. We had to wait 40 minutes for the starters. The mains arrived after 1,5 hrs and were mixed up. Waiter apologized but did not really care. Dessert was missing some parts as... More

Charley G's is an upscale restaurant frequented by locals who in Louisiana know a good meal. They have fresh seafood and local favorites on a rotating menu. Great place for a white table cloth celebration. Every entree is good and the seasonal salad is one of the best salads around. If you are in town and want a great meal... More

Recently, I had the opportunity to have lunch at Charley G's Seafood Grill. It was wonderful. The service, the food, as well as the atmosphere were all quite enjoyable. I hope that I have a reason to be in Lafayette again soon!

Can't believe it's rated less than 5 by anyone. Best cocktail lounge in town. Seasonal menu that keeps some standards year round. Try the spring rolls, duck and andouille gumbo, and crispy duck. No kidding! The best!!! great fresh seafood and steaks. Great ambiance superb service. You can't go wrong here!!!
