Diner Reviews
  • "The food was just O.K. The restaurant had an unpleasant smell that even my husband commented on. I don't know if it was because of the old building or just a strong odor of fish. I really expected a better experience, based on photos and other reviews."

  • "I've had dinner here twice and the food and service has been excellent. Nice to have somewhere to eat where you can carry on a conversation without yelling."

  • "Had the best ahi appetizer and duck curry I've ever had! Would definitely go again when in Boone!"

  • "Visited on what should be a busy weekend, but we were the only table seated during the duration of our dining experience. Many items on the menu were NA. No one was seated at the bar. It wasn't a good vibe!"

  • "Great experience except for the fact that they charged $14 per drink on two margaritas. Kettle One and Dewars 12 were $6 & $7 each (very reasonable)."

  • "I expected a much better experience. Food just not my taste (I guess). We had four order different meals and nobody in our party was really too happy. Limited attention from wait service. Given the restaurants to choose from in the Boone area, I would definitely not recommend Char. Vidalia a much much much better choice and it's just right around the corner. No plans to return."

  • "First time eating at Char and we weren't impressed. Dining area is dark and devoid of atmosphere. Good menu though and our watiress was personable and prompt. Problems began with a long wait for our food. When it arrived, my wife's trout was lukewarm with pastey grits. My friend scallop plate only had 3 small to medium scallops and they were not appealling (he did not eat them and they removed them from his bill). My son ordered beef tips (appetizer) and a wedge salad. The tips came with everyone else's meal, but they didn't bring the wedge out for another 10 minutes. Char would be okay if all the other good restaurants in Boone were booked -- better than fast food, but that's about it."
