Since opening in 1932, Charlie's Steak House has stuck to a no-frills policy (for years there was not even a menu). Since being reopened after Hurricane Katrina, the bar transitioned from its beginnings as a bourbon drinker's spot to one known for other cocktails and a wide selection of wines. The menu includes onion rings, cheese tots, French onion soup and crabmeat au gratin and steaks. Open Tue.-Sat. Full restaurant menu.
