                                                    Had the stuffed shrimp , shrimp was like rubber. Ordered porterhouse steak for 2 and it took almost 2 hrs to get our order. Insane, and the steak wasn't worth the wait. Needless to say the service was horrible. Would definitely not go back

                                                    Nice atmosphere and great service. Unfortunately all 3 of our steaks were over cooked and the stuffed lobster tail was cold. They were pretty busy for Mother’s Day, so it is understandable.

                                                    We had a lovely Mother’s Day lunch. Unfortunately the older adults in our party are hard of hearing and the back ground noise was too overwhelming them to be involved in the conversation.

                                                    Husband and I dine out on weekends as often as possible as we truly enjoy trying out new places and finding new favorites- we’ve added Char to our ever expanding list! For a steakhouse they certainly do an excellent job with seafood! My husband ordered the stuffed shrimp which he devoured while I ordered one of the specials- shrimp, clams and mussels in a tomato broth type sauce over bed of spinach - was divine. I actually finished my dish which I can rarely do but it was that flavorful. For a lighter type of dish it had an explosion of flavors! Dessert was a genuine treat as we were able to enjoy some chocolate cannoli and Husband’s favorite lava cake. Through whole experience our server Nikki was a real delight- engaging, friendly and funny-she was wonderfully accurate with her timing and service. Highly recommend for fun date night or special occasions. We will definitely dine here again!

                                                    For a steakhouse, the porterhouse 40oz for two @ $115 came out quickly after we finished our appetizers. It was ordered medium rare, there was no sizzle on the plate, the meat was over done, it came out warm, not hot and was tough to cut and chew. This is our second time trying Char and both times were disappointing. Will not be trying a third time.

                                                    Prime rib special is a good value. Michael was courteous and appreciative of our return. Michael and the additional wait staff were conscious of our needs and promptly met our requests. Noise level was not a problem but we were early diners. Have been there several times and never disappointed.

                                                    My petite filet was cooked perfectly as ordered- rare. Our server was friendly and efficiently attentive. The only negative is noise level but I can overlook that

                                                    First time back in 2,years!! The noise level was very loud, almost impossible to hear. The server, Michael, was excellent. The food was very good, as usual. The wines were not the same brands as before, okay but not as good. But still we will return.

                                                    This place must be a local favorite.. All kinds of ppl just rolling in. Decor is very outdated and dreary.. Did not like how they have the tables on top of each other and empty sections.. Especially during this covid era.

                                                    Worst Porterhouse I ever had. So tough I could hardly cut it and the noise level was unbearable. Good waiter, though.

                                                    We went to CHAR Steakhouse for my mom's birthday and it was a great experience! We went for their Sunday brunch and were the first customers there and our waitress was the best! Nicki was very fun and energetic, she wasn't bothersome and really let us just enjoy our experience. She gave us great drink and food recommendations, she was also very personable and just overall such a sweet woman! We will definitely be back!
