I am blessed to have been to Char Steakhouse twice. The first time was for Mother’s Day and the second time for Father’s Day with family. Both times the food and service has been OUTSTANDING to say the least from our appetizers, drinks to dessert.
Besides the overall beautiful atmosphere and location of Char Steakhouse, we were impressed by the waiter/waitresses ability to thoroughly describe any of the meals we had questions about. I have attached a few pictures out of the many that I took. We will definitely choose Char Steakhouse for future occasions.

Avoid at all costs!! I have a sensitivity to spicy foods because of a hiatal hernia. I ordered lamb. A piece of hot pepper from another dish (that we did not order) was on my plate and I ate it by accident. I became incredibly ill and had to leave. We were still charged. I ask the manager “you’re seriously going to make us pay when I was in the bathroom coughing up blood?” He looked at me with a huge smile on his face and said yes. I am appalled and will be telling everyone I know to never step foot in Char again

Well it used to be a nice restaurant. Now it’s like eating at a fancy fast food restaurant. The fried calamari was cold the loaded baked potato was under cooked. We won’t be back

I love a good charred steak. This was mediocre. It arrived a little warmer than room temp and was somewhat dry and tough. The service initially seemed rushed as we tried to put in drinks and appetizers, but the waiter told us our order had to put in all at once. I have never been told that a pricey steakhouse. Then for the rest of the meal, we barely saw the staff. The restaurant was packed and they were running around like crazy.

I was first taken back by the two top when I reserved over 2 weeks ago online. It was remedied with a different seating that wasn’t next to all the
traffic passing by. Our waiter was attentive and he knew his food and we talked about the difference in oysters. Steak was cooked perfectly and sides were also good. Dessert was just so so cheesecake but hubs loved the bread pudding. We had a gift card from my daughters from last year but waited to after COVID. Restaurant was very lively and very busy.

We had a beautiful evening eating outside. The sunset was delightful as we slowly finished are nice bottle of red wine. The steak was really good but the chocolate ice cream is the best.

The atmosphere was trendy and seating comfortable. The food, drinks and desert were A-plus delicious.

Been going to Char for quite a few years and always was pleased with food and service. Yesterday was the worst experience I ever had there. The food had to be sent back because it was not cooked right. Invited friends for my birthday and they had a terrible experience with the food also. Not sure I want to back there again!

I gave it 3 stars because the wait staff repeatedly took wine glasses off of tables midway through dining, and put them up on the rack to reuse without cleaning them! Once glasses have been on someone's table for an hour, they should always be cleaned. They also came to our table with re-usable place mats as we were finishing up salads and asked if they could put them down, which seemed like an odd time. We enjoyed the rare tuna on the menu. However, the martinis which used to be the absolute best, were not up to par. The glass was not adequately chilled, and warm vodka was added from the bottle!
Apparently, the bartender did not shake enough to fill the glasses and was too lazy to shake more.

I've been frequenting Char since it took over the space from Ashes, and it has consistently climbed to higher and higher heights. The Filets we had were done perfectly, and the quality of the meat was as good as you'll find anywhere. The Crab Cake appetizer, unique in its composition and presentation is unrivalled. If you want the best hamburger on the Shore, try Chars. The slivers of Jalapeno Peppers generously mingled with the accompanying French Fries are a perfect touch. This level of American Haute Cuisine does not come cheap but it's worth every penny.
