Restaurant is very busy, but they do not open up all of their seating sections and never have enough staff. Waited over 20 mins for a table. Food was good, prices were okay, service was average, and dessert was yummy. Next time I will go somewhere else. No apologies were offered for the lack of staff or the ridiculous wait... More

I have eaten here many times before with no problem at all. But within 30 minutes after eating here on November 12th, 2016, I became as sick as a dog! I ordered a fried chicken breast sandwich and ate half of it. It didn't taste bad at all but when I got home my stomach begin to cramp. I took... More

I frequent this place weekly and it just never disappoints. You absolutely can't beat the quality for the price. I love the cedar plank salmon, the prime rib and the California Chicken Salad just to name a few...the customer service is awesome. I tend to eat at the bar with Jaie but I love them all 👍🏽👍🏽

Had an excellent burger made to order with a side of seasoned fries. Server was very friendly and helpful. Kids eat free with adult order. Free pie on Wednesday. Menu has been updated, so is worth a try.

Hadn't been to O'Charley's lately so decided to give it a try. Was pleasantly surprised that they had a new menu. They have removed a lot of items and have replaced them. New menu looks great. Lots of new selections. I tried the new peach chicken with mashed sweet potatoes. The food was very good. Sever was friendly. I will... More

Nice enough place to have a quick bit. It is not classified as fine dining but it is not meant to be. The food is good and the service is fine. Pleasant place to eat.

Wow! I absolutely love all the healthy options they have available here! My kids had grilled chicken & broccoli, my husband had the plank salmon with asparagus. I had the famous O'Charley's battered chicken tenders with broccoli and green beans. All the vegetables were not over cooked and still crispy with freshness! My battered chicken was so good that I...

Went in for dinner during the week and sat in the bar area. The food selection was good and I had ordered the New Orlean Cajun pasta and it tasted good but not the Cajun taste I was expected. The waiter can be more attentive and forgot to bring out a second serving of bread and the kitchen had put... More
