Took a while to get a seat. There were plenty of open booths but none were clean. The hostess started cleaning tables so all the people waiting could finally be seated. Floors looked like they haven't been cleaned in days. Restrooms were very nasty. When...More

Service was very good and lots of variety on the menu. They were out of prime rib, though, and pretty early in the evening.

I am a frequent visitor to Lake Charles and often stop by here for dinner. The service is good as well as the food. I usually am seated immediately without wait.

I have eaten at O’Charley’s a number of times. On my last visit this past week, they were short on wait staff. The place was extremely dirty we had to listen to other waiters complain and threaten to walk out. Our waiter was nice enough...More
