    Our entrees were less than par, didn’t enjoy them at all. Burger wasn’t seasoned, bun was extremely hard even though we requested it not to be toasted. The chicken biscuit was just OK, not memorable at all. Overall, the food just isn’t that great. We have dined several times hoping for a better experience and have been disappointed each time. We will definitely not patronize again.

    Don't understand how food can be great one time and mediocre the next. I don't know who was cooking on 1.23 but it was not very good. Steak was not cooked properly and my sea bass was just fair. The cut and of fish was poor and the presentation was poor. The gumbo and salad was excellent but that was all. We didn't stay for dessert and discussed if we wanted to come back.

    This was the worst experience I have ever had at a supposedly nice steakhouse. We waited an hour after ordering our food to be served. And then my steak was ice cold. I sent it back but my other guests did not even though theirs were just slightly warm. When my steak was brought back it was still only barely warm. They had a big a big private party that night and kept apologizing about it. I guess they were not prepared for it and it cost me and my guests to have a terrible time at our own expense of $300+ for 3 people. They gave us one free dessert which was supposed to make up for everything. I won’t ever go here again.

    Char - HuntsvilleResponded 6 days agoHi Bill, I'm so sorry to learn that you did not have a five-star experience with us.

    It took over 20 minutes to deliver a salad to our table. The bread was served raw (under cooked). My wife’s first course arrived cold when it was supposed to be hot. This used to be the best restaurant in Huntsville which is why we came back but we won’t make that mistake again.

    Fifth time dining at Char, not terrible but not good. We were a table for two for dinner and they seated us next to three large parties of 6 to 10 so not the best ambience. Ordered crab claw appetizer and after about 20 min the waiter returned and informed us they were out of crab claws. Understand, but reordering appetizer took another 10 minutes then the entrees arrived. The veal Oscar was way overcooked and tough. And, the crab cake that came with it was the worst crab cake we have tasted at any of the Huntsville restaurants. The New Orleans shrimp was just “OK” but again not up to upscale restaurant standards in terms of flavor. Guess we should have just had steaks but thought we’d try something different. One nice thing the waiter did comp us dessert for my birthday.

    Char - HuntsvilleResponded on January 17, 2023Hi Phillip, thank you for your recent visit to Char. I'm so sorry to learn that some of your selections fell short of expectations!

    We received a gift certificate from our daughter and could not have picked a better place to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary! Amazing dinner and fantastic service. We didn’t feel rushed to eat our meal. Fabulous menu selections from appetizers (highly recommend the No-Filler Crab Cakes) to dinner entrees (I had the Veal Oscar which was tender and delicious - my husband had the Beefeater and it was excellent). Portions were terrific and we needed a container to take food home. Dessert was out of this world (the House-Made Pecan Pie was scrumptious). Loved our experience and will be happily sharing our wonderful memories with everyone we know.

    Regarding food, everything was great except for the french fries with the Steak Frites. The fries were room temperature upon arrival. Other food was excellent, including: Onion Rings, Fried Green Tomatoes, Steak Frites, and the pecan pie. We have now tried every red wine by-the-glass on the menu. All are average; none are special.

    The food and service was great as always. I was a little confused at why I was sat at a table right by the doors of the kitchen when other tables were available the entire night. I would think that would be the last place you would seat people. When I made my reservations I requested a booth and put that I was on a date. I would have thought that even if a booth wasn’t available, being put in a quieter place in the restaurant would have been recognized.

    Reservations were honored immediately, no wait at all, our waiter was knowledgeable about every aspect of our order and didn’t pressure us to order or leave. Yet, he was always available. The food and veggies were perfectly cooked. The portions were reasonable for fine dining . The server served our food without asking and got it right. Probably the best food experience I have had in Huntsville. And the atmosphere was fine dining/comfortable. Live piano!
