Charlie’s Steakhouse • NOLA

There is something truly special about the sophisticated simplicity of the offerings at Charlie’s Steakhouse. The restaurant has been delighting steak lovers since 1932. They are still serving customers without a printed menu to this day; all items are relayed by staff.

Charlie’s diners know what they want, starting with the famous T-bones, cooked any way they choose, in one of three significant sizes. Pairing huge steaks with favorites like Potatoes Au Gratin, made famous by the original creator and owner Matthew Dwyer, has kept this much-loved New Orleans institution alive and well for hungry visitors and locals for years.
