Party of 5 on a slow Tuesday night. Having been disappointed here previously, I decided to play it safe with a burger and fries. I ordered the burger with "a little pink left" in it. When my meal arrived, I discovered that my burger is dry as a hockey puck (no insult to hockey pucks intended) and that any pink... More

To say that O'Charley's in Lafayette is average (rated a 3) is an out and out lie. In one of the world's best food cities it is nowhere near average, but in the grand scheme of things the food is very average. Let's start off with a positive. Our server was Tori and she was excellent. She was very quiet... More

Food is adequate and priced competitively. Lunch service is slow, but evening service is usually better. Actually, the food is better at night as well. The best day to go is Wednesday for a slice of free pie if you order an entree. I like the sandwiches and the fried catfish.

We visited O'Charley's after passing by many times and wondering if it was a good place to eat. Very seldom was the parking lot full, so that didn't encourage us to try it either. Finally, we went there for supper, and the wait staff seemed untrained, with the manager eventually waiting on our table. The food was reasonably good, but... More

The catfish were not fillets but strips but still were good but the slaw was so-so. I ordered the Fresh Grilled Atlantic Salmon which came with choice of... More

We visited a long time ago and I said I'd rather starve than return. The place has turned around. The carpet has been replaced and it no longer smells in here. It's clean now and the food and service were terrific. The new menu is American fare at good prices. We will return. It's ways better than Chili's or Applebee's.... More

We were out shopping the other evening and decided to grab a bite befor heading home. We had heard that O'Charleys had been remodeled recently and decided to check it out. The staff were very pleasant from the minute we walked in. Our waitress, Jenna, offered some suggestions from their new menu. The portion of the Specialty Salad that we... More

We had one of the specialty salads and it was so big that it would feed 2 people, so as a couple, order one that way you can have room for dessert. The staff is fasr and friendly. It is quite the bargain too!!
