Diner Reviews
  • "Char is my favorite restaurant in Jackson. I am very comfortable recommending this restaurant to others and it is my go to restaurant for lunch or dinner with business associates and clients. In the past 3-1/2 years I have never been disappointed by the food selection, food preparation, and the wait staff. For a most enjoyable dining experience, I would unequivocally recommend Kevin who works during the day. I travel for business and pleasure and Kevin is one of the best waiters I have come across in the last 30+ years. At night time, I would recommend Michael. Michael is very knowledgeable about the wine list and remembers what I like to eat but also makes suggestions. Get the crab cake Benedict for Sunday brunch."

  • "I dine at Char with Vendors and family frequently...this particular night I was with a vendor...the drinks took a good while to get...the Spinach appetizer was cold, the broccolini was cold...never had this occur before..."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "Salad & BBQ Shrimp app was fine, but nothing spectacular. And I felt the same way about the filet. The best part of dinner was probably the apple crisp for dessert. With all the fantastic restaurants in Jackson, I doubt we'll be back here."

  • "Consistently delicious! Unfortunately our experience was dampened by the extremely loud table a few feet away. Wish someone could've spoken to them about their "celebration level". Otherwise, a perfect evening: wonderful cocktails (I recommend Mama's Secret), yummy food and a warm atmosphere."

  • "The waitstaff was very attentitive and friendly, the food was great. The wait times were very good given the crowd, and the open table seating was very accomodating. Will be dining here again!"

  • "I fell in love with this restaurant in one night. There was great service from the time I walked in till the moment I left. I had one of the more expensive entrees and it was worth every penny. The filet medium rare was phenomenal! The best steak I have ever had. I will be bring my date back here for sure!"

  • "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."

  • "Good food. Very loud. Nice restrooms. Booth seat height too aloe for the table. Would try again for lunch not dinner for two."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Food is consistently good; service stellar; and lovely ambiance. I eat at Char every chance I get and the crab cakes are divine as an appetizer or as an entree."

  • "The service and food were amazing! The price is a little on the high side, but the food was worth the price. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "I've been to Chars twice and I love it!!!! Great service, great food, great drinks, great atmosphere!!! Will definitely continue to come."

  • "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."

  • "This was first time my chi workers and u ate at CHAR'S. The good was good and inexpensive, service was fast. I will definitely be back. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "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."
