We enjoyed our evening at Char. Our server, Ian, was awesome. He was attentive and knowledgeable without being annoying. The crab cakes were a wonderful appetizer. Scallops were melt in your mouth good; although just a touch too salty for my taste, but it did not discourage me from eating them all. My husband’s ribeye was perfectly cooked and seasoned. He also raved about the Brussels sprouts. For dessert, we had the pecan butter crunch. It was the perfect end to our date night.
The vibe was really nice. Waiter was awesome. However, the steaks were very underwhelming. They were not seasoned. I felt as if I was just eating a plain steak.

We were greeted promptly by a friendly hostess and seated immediately. Our server was accommodating , professional and friendly. The food was beautifully plated, seasoned well and cooked perfectly . Had a wonderful evening with friends!
We love Char and will be back. Our waiter Ken was fabulous
Went for my mom’s birthday, the waitress we had was great I forgot her name . Everything was delicious from the strawberry wine , fried green tomatoes, ginger peanut chicken salad, and we tried two different desserts the apple crunch and blueberry bread pudding which were great as well.
Thanks for celebrating with us! Please come back and see us again soon!
The food was delicious and the service was great. I highly recommend it.
Went for anniversary dinner. Ian was a great waiter. Salmon and ribeye were perfectly cooked. Will be back.
Thanks for celebrating your special day with us! We hope to see you again soon!
I made a reservation for two to celebrate my husband's birthday. We arrived an were seated I'm a quiet area. The ambiance was intimate and our server was attentive and knowledgeable. Everything we at and drank was superb.
Thanks for celebrating your husband's special day with us! We hope to see both of you again soon!
Great service and great food. Great atmosphere abs friendly staff
the crab cakes and the rib eye steak were outstanding. Unfortunately, the sauce for seafood pasta was way too "smokey". Even if it had been more subtle, it did not pair well to the seafood.
We recommend the filet or ribeye. The prime rib was tough and difficult to cut.
The kitchen may have been short handed we saw a number of people hurrrying out to try to get to a performance in town on time. A sign of the times right now.
We dined at Char to celebrate my husbands recent promotion. We were seated as soon as we arrived. The piano player was a very nice touch but ended not long after we arrived.
Shortly after arrival, Loly, our server, greeted us and brought my requested (via the app) plastic utensils. I was impressed!
We didn’t realize the menu was limited during the afternoon but she said we could still order from the dinner menu so brought one out. She was kind, very pleasant and accommodating. She made our visit enjoyable.
That being said, I was really disappointed with the quality of the food. I had heard great things about the restaurant so had high expectations. The bread was great (you have to request it during lunch).
I ordered the Salmon and was disappointed with the taste. I was expecting a melt in your mouth experience but it fell short.
My husband ordered the Cowboy ribeye, medium rare, which apparently means pretty raw. It was very tough to chew and the flavor just wasn’t there.
Our server compensated us work dessert to take home. Again, she was super nice and I appreciate that.
Overall the service & ambiance was nice, however, the food was not worth the cost in my opinion.
This was our first time at Char and it was delicious and melt in your mouth like butter. I had the lamb chops and my husband had the ribeye cowboy steak. They were cooked to perfection. If you want excellent go to Char worth every dollar.
I choose the prime rib. It was delicious, well-marbled - as appropriate - and cooked to perfection. My wife went with the scallops entre that was also absolutely, wonderfully cooked and seasoned. The sides were delicious as well. We decided on their ice cream topped pecan pie for desert. It was an excellent choice. A very enjoyable meal.
Food and drinks were amazing. Service was excellent.
Server was really good.
Great as always! Look forward to the next visit at Char!
Char is most consistent except not this visit. Not sure if kitchen was paying attention. Chicken in my salad was tough as leather, well overdone and highly salted,over the top. Lettuce had a musty taste. Salads can be appealing in presentation, but this was not the case. Manager needs to oversee what is brought out. As for the steak/prime rib sandwich au jus, well it was a sad plate of overcooked meat on bread saturated in grease. Fries were teeny bits and pieces over fried due to size. Just brown and unappealing. What happened to Char? Is your reputation deserved?
Hi Rosie, thank you for your recent visit to Char. I'm very sorry to learn that we fell short of providing you with a five-star meal. Please know that we are always happy to take care of any dish that you do not absolutely love, especially if it isn't served perfectly the first time around, as long as we are made aware of it during your visit. We never want our guests leaving unsatisfied in any way. I have shared your comments with our culinary and management teams for review. Thank you again for your patronage and comments; we hope you will consider another visit in the near future.
Wednesday is fried chicken day very good, tomato soup good all the meals have been very nice.
Excellent experience. Food was awesome. The only downside item was the same as any dining establishment these days…not enough wait staff. Our waiter was excellent, but he was having to cover numerous tables. Other than causing a bit of a wait in no way affected the level of service.
We were given a gift card from a friend, so we were excited to try Char. We absolutely loved our whole experience. We will be going back. Our server (I wish I had his name) made everything even better. Thank you, Char for a wonderful experience.
Waitress was amazing!!! Food was great!
It was a bit cold in the room for Avery cold day outside.
What a wonderful Sunday Brunch. The restaurant is lovely with live music playing. The menu offered many choices and the food was excellent. I had the Crab Benedict and the cream shrimp soup and my husband had the gumbo and Cajun Seafood over cheese grits. Wonderful. Can't say enough about the service. Lole (sp) was our server and she was amazing. Attentive, friendly and very professional. We will definitely be going back there, next time for dinner.
Hi Bev, thank you for the detailed review! We love to hear that our team provided a memorable visit for you. Loli is a valuable member of our staff, and we’ll be sure to pass along your kind note to her! Thanks again for the kind feedback; we hope to see you again soon!
The Brunch is our favorite and was outstanding as always! And the service is always great, too!
We had a wonderful experience at Char! Will definitely be back in the near future.
Great service and Food as usual
Since moving to the area Char has become our favorite place to dine. The atmosphere, service and food are always excellent.
We recommend Char to everyone we know.
Welcome to Huntsville! We're excited to be your new favorite. Please come back and see us again soon!
Excellent service and exceptional food
Lovely atmosphere and superb food!
Outstanding food, service and experience. Highly recommend. Server Sierra was phenomenal.
Hi Matthew, thanks for the incredible feedback! It’s always rewarding when a guest recognizes our team members’ efforts. We appreciate your kindness and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Perfect as always
The steaks were awesome!! You could cut them with a butter knife they were so tender.
Excellent food and service
Loved having our anniversary dinner here in Huntsville not New Orleans! Our waiter was excellent and the food was delicious. Only complaint is that bartender was extremely stingy with cocktail quantity...literally 5 swallows and it was gone...glass full of ice! The drinks were good...but for $12 I needed more than 5 swigs...when I complained to the waiter....the second drink ordered was even smaller!
After a six month hiatus, we decided to give Char another try, and I’m glad we did. The food was delicious and served at the perfect temp. Our server Joseph was terrific! Thoroughly enjoyed a Voodoo Lady (or 2) and overall had a great late lunch. Thank you.
Thanks for coming back and seeing us! We loved having you and hope to see you again soon!
I have frequented Char Huntsville on many occasions and I highly recommended it to my family visiting from out of town for the holidays. It’s my favorite restaurant! Unfortunately, we had a horrible experience. To start, our food arrived to the table late. The server explained he did not know what happened, apologized and said it would be out within a few minutes. When it did arrive, we had three separate orders of steak frites and one prime rib and all of the meat was very poor quality. All of the steak frites were ordered at medium temp and they all arrived literally “charred” and very well done. In fact, they should have never been delivered to our table that way. They were very tough and hard to cut. We rarely send items back to kitchen, but sent one plate back. When they brought the new plate, it was worse than the first. The prime rib was very tough and hard to chew. Since opening, I have ordered their steak on serval occasions and while most of the time, it has been delicious, I have noticed an inconsistency with their food. As much as it pains me to say, I do not think I’ll be visiting again. It’s a great ambiance and when it’s good, it’s great, but the inconsistency and quality of food is not worth another visit.
Thank you for your recent visit to Char. I'm so sorry to hear that your meal was underwhelming! We source our steaks from Greater Omaha meats, a family-owned premium purveyor of beef located in Omaha, NE. It is disappointing to hear that your particular cuts were tough; we will share this with our culinary team to look into and ensure the product we are serving is top notch. Furthermore, it sounds like we missed the mark in serving your cuts of meat to the desired temperature, and I sincerely apologize for how this affected your experience. We'd like to speak with you a little more about your visit and determine how we can regain your trust and patronage. Would you mind sharing your contact information at your convenience? Thank you for your feedback; we look forward to speaking with you soon.
Always exceptional food and exceptional service. I would have loved to have sat in the darker dining area for my anniversary lunch (Christmas Eve), but I do not have any legitimate complaints.
