Loly was an amazing server and led us through every step of the Char Experience. Amazing app recommendations the Fried Green Tomatoes were my favorite. Entrees were delicious and sides and add ons were yummy. Bread pudding was a great dessert but I was too full to finish it. Atmosphere was intimate yet inviting. Definitely will be back!

Food was great and service was good. While our server started out taking great care of us, he seemed to get very busy at a few points in our visit. Will be back!

We celebrated our son’s 18th birthday here and the staff went above and beyond to make it special for him. They all signed a birthday card that was at the table already and lit a candle for him with his dessert. The food was AMAZING!!! We had ribeye, prime rib, and lamb chops- super delicious! On top of it all, our waiter was the best!!! Great interaction, informative, fun, and all around great service!

Service, as always, is just superb. My Mom and I did find our prime rib to have a little more gristle than when we last visited in April, but still the salad and the loaded baked potato were perfection. We will be back.

EXCELLENT!! Char is top notch. The service was amazing and the food was even better. The prices are high but my steak was so flavorful and cooked to perfection that I can almost justify the prices.

Our experience at Char was lovely. The hostess was extremely gracious. Our server Andrea was amazing and every so patient with our indecisiveness! Our meals were divine and our experiene overall was great. Everyone was masked and spaced out. This was my second time eating indoors since the pandemic and I was very at ease and comfortable with how the restaurant is handling everything.
Thank you all!

I took our guys here for business dinner and had a nice time. Only complaint is it was loud in the dining room and you really couldn't hear people at the table very well. That was probably more a function of the people sitting next to us rather than the room.

The piano bar is lovely and the service was wonderful. I was in Huntsville for business and was alone. The intimate setting of the bar area was just perfect and I enjoyed it very much. The filet was not cooked exactly right and they absolutely made everything right. Worth the wait.

Easter Dinner with the family. Absolutely the worst lobster I have ever had. Tough and chewy and almost burnt! Of course they were out of crab claws. Always are! Spent $200 and the food was cold. Nit the first time we have had terrible food but I wanted to give it another chance. Last time I will go!

Thank you for your review.

This is certainly not what we strive to be known for and I sincerely apologize for falling short on execution on more than one occasion. I have shared this with our General Manager, who would like to speak with you directly.

Shrimp bisque was amazing. All meals (Lamb chops, Filet, NY strip and prime rib) were perfect. Desserts were very good as well and very reasonably priced for the portion size (blueberry bread pudding, sorbet and gelato). We will be back.

Service was also top notch!
