Prime rib was cooked to perfection. Our server, Jessica was excellent- she was very knowledgeable on the menu items and was able to provide great options for our food allergies.
This was our first visit to Char. What a great find! Nice wine list, both by the glass and bottle. Chocolate espresso butter for the bread...amazing. Steaks cooked perfectly. Flourless chocolate tort perfect for dessert with a nice red wine. Great service. A little spendy but not out of line when talking about fine dining. Will definitely return on our next trip to the area.
The steaks that we ordered were not cooked to the temperature that we had indicated. We had indicated medium rare and they were cooked medium well, without an ounce of pink in them. We then had to wait for a new steak and were still charged for it, even though it was their mistake. The server was not attentive, or quick with the delivery of drinks, the taking of our order or checking back to see how our steaks were. My dining partner had to wait a long time for his steak to be remade, while I was already done with me meal.
The ribeye was wonderful - cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The pan seared walleye was also wonderful and the bacon corn side was phenomenal! Best food at Grandview hands down!
Jenny was a great waitress.
The food was nice, not great, but decent.
The view is lovely and wine was outstanding.
It’s nice to have in the same place as you are staying.
The server forgot the fruit cup, food cooked in advance, not enough choices, only 1 semi-healthy option, no cooked to order breakfasts but yet priced as if cooked to order.
Our waitress was friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious.
If not for being forgotten when we first arrived (40 minutes before we nabbed someone’s attention to ask if we had a server) this would have been an amazing dinner. Once we did receive an assigned server (Jenny - who was exceptional and completely made up for any previous disappointment) the food and experience was phenomenal. From the tuna poke nachos to the creme brûlée - every course left us happy and satisfied. A portion of our meal was comped for the delayed service and we are completely delighted with the experience. Can’t wait for our next opportunity to dine at Char.
Filet mignon was so good we came back the next night and split it.
The service was fabulous and the food was marvelous. We had a great dinning experience. No complaints.
My husband and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary at Grandview Lodge and went for dinner at Char. Our server was very polite and had great recommendations for menu items. The ribeye and walleye were phenomenal and our waiter surprised us with a delectable dessert prepared by the pastry chef. We very much enjoyed our anniversary dinner and had a great experience!
Limited menu, but something for everyone! The breakfast potatoes were amazing! And the cinnamon rolls were too!
Great dinner and conversation
We enjoyed everything about it and very much looked forward to our dinner and wine and also wait staff very professional and friendly
Prime rib was excellent as well as the filet. Top with the smoked blue cheese and wild mushrooms!
Best dinner in 2 years! The beef short rib special with truffle mashed potatoes was the best we’ve ever had. The crab cake appetizer was excellent... we will be back again and again, so shhhhh don’t tell anyone! Don’t take our table please.
Yes, everything was great once we found the place. Are you kidding me????? How bout a sign on how to get to this place. I can't believe you're that stupid. Everybody laughed it off when we brought it up. Food was great, but I'll never go back.
I had the most amazing steak ever. The side dishes were equally amazing!
Dining at Grand View Lodge is always a great experience.
The crab cake, prime rib, pasta, and cheesecake were all EXCELLENT. One of the highlights of our vacation
We were promptly seated where requested and service was very comfortable with no feeling of rush or delay. Food was unique and delicious. We had never been before but received a gift certificate from Grand View Real Estate so tried it. Will go back for sure.
Most delicious ribeye I’ve ever had!
