Diner Reviews
  • "Our waiter, James, was awesome. We never had to ask for anything (just like our previous trip to Char). The wait staff was constantly working, never seen taking breaks, and were all friendly to our table. My cup of gumbo was excellent, as was the wedge salad with chicken. The atmosphere was fabulous, but I would recommend a reservation as both times we have came to Char for lunch there were people waiting for tables. "

  • "Excellent Eggs Florentine like Eggs Sardou. Had a wonderful time! Only wish the musicians had stayed in one spot. Not everyone wants to talk over them, although they were good."

  • "Best Lunch in Jackson. James provided great service, pacing our meal out just right. My Sin City BBQ shrimp was rich with flavor. My guest opted for the Ginger Peanut Salad w/ blackened chicken, said it was delicious. Nice selection of craft beers, as always the butter crunch dessert excellent. Looking forward to trying dinner there."

  • "I am a Jackson resident for 31 years. I moved to DC and now fly back monthly to Jackson finishing up a degree. I have never been to Char as a resident and went with a few classmates for the first time to end our night with some dessert. The waitress and hostess both said that you can order a full dessert, a half dessert or a $2 dessert. The 4 of us ordered 5 $2 desserts and our bill was only $12. The flavor of the pecan pie is out of this world as well as the butter crunch cake! This is what dessert is suppose to taste like. It's the noise making, eye rolling, extra facial expressions dessert. My group has already planned a trip back here next month for dinner and dessert. The atmosphere is classy and welcoming."

  • "We were in Jackson for the sole purpose of celebrating my son's wife's birthday, as the location was roughly halfway between our home in New Orleans and his. We selected Char based on prior reviews that we read and we were not disappointed. We ended up with 5 in our party rather than 4 and the staff graciously accommodated the change in party size on a crowded Saturday night. We sampled just about every conceivable fare from hamburgers to steak to a seafood special and everything was delicious. Would definitely visit again."

  • "This was the best experience my wife and I have ever had at a restaurant. My steak was cooked perfectly. My wife love her pork chop and the mixed drink she ordered was lovely. The wait staff were very professional and nice, especially our waitress. The atmosphere was great and even with it being Valentine's Day on a Friday night we made reservations and got there a little earlier and were seated right away. A truly great place to dine at."

  • "Wifey and I love dining at Char Restaurant and we have many fond memories there. We had by far the best experience do date at Char. There was no waiting to get to our table that we had reserved (normally we have to wait 5-10 minutes for our reservations); the staff was really on the ball tonight. The food was excellent; my steak was cooked exactly how I ordered it and our waitress (Coretta) was quite hospitable to us both."

  • "My husband and I had a delicious meal at Char for Valentine's. I had the black fish, and he ordered the chicken piccata. We also had the spinach crisp appetizer. The food was amazing! Service was slow, but they were extremely busy. The manager came by to check on us. Also, another waitress refilled our water from time to time. Not sure where the waiter was, but still a good experience. Thanks!"

  • "My husband and I always pick somewhere nice to go eat a romantic dinner for Valentine's Day, but for some reason we have never picked char on valentine's day. I assumed , like most places on this busy night, that Char would be packed and busy. We had made reservations on open table several weeks in advance and were seated immediately when we arrived. We never felt rushed, or hurried while we ate. Each thing we ate was amazing, and brought out quickly. Both of our steaks were cooked perfectly. The butter crunch cake we had for dessert was out of this world!! I do not think we will continue picking different restaurants for valentine's day, I think we have found the perfect date night spot!"

  • "Char has great, slightly eclectic food, fantastic service, and an atmosphere that is equally well suited to black-tie or jeans and button-down. If you want to eat cheap, it's easy to do (~$35 for 2), or you can go all out and have a spectacular meal. All in all, one of the best restaurants in Jackson."

  • "My girlfriend and I are at Char for Valentines Day. We had a wonderful experience. She had the Black Fish special which was excellent! I had the cowboy ribeye. It was cooked to perfection and tasted wonderful. Michael did a fantastic job of serving us. We will definitely be back soon!"

  • "I was in the area for a business meeting, and my co-worker and I decided on Char. We were amazed by the wonderful wait staff that never just stood around. Every member was always busy working. My coworker and I both had great meals that were served in a timely manner despite having a full house with people waiting for a table in the lobby. I highly recommend a reservation if you plan to eat here because it is that popular."

  • "I work outside of Jackson and met a client at Char for lunch. The reservation was handled as well as could be expected. We were seated immediately, and the service was prompt and attentive. The food was excellent especially the butternut crumb cake that we had for dessert and the prices were reasonable. I thought the mood of the restaurant was conducive for a casual business environment."

  • "We usually get the same item from the Dinner menu....he gets the duck and I LOVE the Spinach Crisp! I don't eat duck but I think the Spinach Crisp is about the best thing on the menu...aside from the Fried, Green Tomatoes...they are EXCELLENT! However....I should have stuck with my "usual" the other night! For a short time, you offered a Chopped Sirloin, with onions and a gravy, that was great! Then you removed that item and placed a couple of burgers on there. THEY were really good! But the meat in the burger was a disappointment the other night, as well as the Spinach side dish! It was NOTHING like it used to be! It was NOT CREAMED, NO CHEESE & TASTELESS!! Larry was off, so, I was NOT that happy with our dining experience."

  • "Needed a NICE place for N Y eve dinner with out of town guests. VERY glad I jumped on the last minute reservation available thru open table. Impressed with this elegant, quiet, efficient, high quality restaraunt. Excellent meals and top shelf drinks at what passes for "reasonable" prices these days. We will remember Char next time we have a special occasion."
