  • "Everything was great except for the rude hostess. It was like we were a burdon to her."

  • "I brought a couple of potential clients here for lunch. The food and service were great (flawless). We were seated immediately and the food was served timely. I would definetly recommend Char for business lunch meetings."

  • "We went on a Sunday evening. Our server informed us 3 entrees were not available and they ran out of the soup of the day. The fried green tomatoes were good. My entree was the veal piccata which was over salted and barely warm when I got it. My wife had the scallops and grits. Scallops were tasty but the grits were also not hot. Their pecan pie was the best part of dinner. Char was just average to us."

  • "Made a reservation for our daughter's birthday celebration. Mentioned it was her birthday when the reservation was made and again when checking in. Waitress said happy birthday to her but when asked if we wanted coffee and dessert we weren't quite sure what the restaurant was going to do so we ordered something. No candle and no chocolate on the dessert plate. Was a disappointment considering they knew. Also, we ordered an appetizer for the table and as we were swallowing our last bite of the appetizer the salads arrived. We told them at this point we weren't ordering our entrees yet, it was all too fast. Overall, food was good, place was nice, service was too rushed and disappointment that they don't acknowledge celebrations."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This was a very nice restaurant. It is on the top of our list for best restaurants. The food was great from the appetizers to the dessert. We will recommend this restaurant to anyone. This will not be the last visit."

  • "We totally enjoyed celebrating Mothers Day at Char. We had reservations so had no trouble getting seated promptly. It was very crowded and our service was a little slower than usual. However, we have eaten at Char previously and the service is usually excellent. We had the range chicken and blackened redfish, both over garlic potatoes. The food was excellent. We were there during the brunch hours and the atmosphere was very lively. We'll definitely go back again."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Char was recommended by a friend who said they were known for their desserts. Unfortunately they were out of their top desert, and we were an early table on Mother's Day. While that was disappointing, the food was very good, atmosphere was relaxed, and service was excellent. I would definitely go again, and hope to have their Pecan Butter Crunch dessert."

  • "From the moment one walks in until the bill is paid, the whole experience is fantastic!!!"

  • "I must say I was early for my reservation. I had a seat at the bar & was quickly was promptly served by a knowledgeable bartender. Shortly thereafter I was seated for dinner. The food was all served as requested and seemed fair for the prices. The sauted shrimp was wonderful! I was happy with my experience and will return in the future. However, I suppose the sides ordered could be a larger portion. "

  • "My husband and I have been twice (Valentine's Day and our first wedding anniversary), and we have loved it both times. My husband will never get anything but the steak. :) The first time I got fish, and it wasn't life changing for the price. But the second time I got filet mignon and that was DEFINITELY the way to go! I'd highly recommend it for a special occasion or to impress a date."

  • "I took my mother here for Easter Brunch, made reservations which are a plus because without reservations the wait wouldve been over an hour. We had the gumbo for the 1st course and it was very good. we both had the grits with creole sauce over it. The sauce had a good flavor, but the portion of grits to sauce was poor. We also ordered mac & chesse and cornbread dressing for sides. The mac & chesse was cold, and the cornbread dressing was just nasty. we had for dessesrt the brownie with the ice cream. That was also very good. Our waitress was wonderful, I enjoyed having her. I will come back I just dont think it will be for brunch. "

  • "This was the best place to go if you are looking for a nice quiet place for just two or a small gathering. I had a great time there with my father who I don't get much time with anymore."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The food and service was great as we expected but loud disrupting laughs were coming from a nearby table. Not sure the Char staff could do anything about the rude people but it affected the enjoyment of our dinner. I guess this review is just to let other diners know that business diners love Char too and a weeknight visit might find some groups there with large alcohol budgets."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "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."

  • "I have tried many things on the menu; the food is always good. The service is consistent. It is the best place I have found to have a conversation. The atmosphere is relaxing. Char is our go to place for a special occasion. Save room for the Pecan Carmel Butter Crunch or Pecan Pie."
