The food was fantastic. I had the steak and asked them to blacken it. Delicious. The rest of the meal was similarly delicious. All of the desserts were terrific and each of the four of us had something different. Now for the thing that I didn't like and will keep me away: they have live music. And it's loud. So... More

Good Morning, Would you mind telling us when you dined with us? We would like to fix the noise issue and aren't sure if its the piano music, a full restaurant or something else. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed our food. Chef Holly and her staff work very hard to provide our guests with the best possible... More

Charlie G's has long been touted as one of the finest places to dine. There is a distinct difference dining and eating, and Charlie G's was supposed to be one. Well.......not so much. There were seven of us for the Easter Brunch, and we were seated in a timely fashion. When the server brought the menus, he was just passing... More

Charlie G's is a unique, one of a kind restaurant that serves top notch Cajun and Creole cuisine. The kitchen is built so that guest can see the chefs preparing the dishes. Although expensive, it is well worth it.

Love the atmosphere! The wait staff was well trained, courteous and knowledgeable. I got the shrimp scampi and a salad. My dinner guest got the special for the night which was a salmon dish. We had the coconut shrimp appetizer and bread pudding for dessert. Everything was very tasty. Definitely pricey though with a $126 tab.

Hadn't been in a while. Holly G. and the gang are still killin' it. Justin and the front of the house provided top notch service. Nate, our server is the best. Maybe even better than famed server, Steven Stein. Maybe.

Excellent atmosphere, awesome menu and drink choices with outstanding wine list and service. We recently dined here for my husband's birthday. He is a great cook so he isn't easily impressed while dining out. Let's just say that he thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The appetizer was awesome as well as our entrees, sides and of course dessert. Our wine... More

Love this place. The food is always wonderful and the gumbo is so good! How do they get the roux so dark and not burn it??!!!! Always like the garlic and toast points here too! I bring out of towners here for the great food and service.
