    We have been to Char many times, and since this was an anniversary dinner I was a little worried that we would be a little bored with the meal. But to the opposite, it was one of the best prepared meals we've had in a long time -- timely and well-made drinks, a 16 oz steak cooked PERFECTLY, and probably the best desert we've had in Jackson (chocolate fudge brownie with caramel sauce and praline pecan ice cream!!).

    Char - JacksonResponded 4 days agoHi George, thank you for the five-star review! We're so pleased to hear that you enjoyed such a memorable anniversary dinner at Char. Thank you for celebrating with us; we hope to see you back again soon!

    Service was slow. The waiter did not get one of the members in our party order right. The food has always been good, but the last couple of times I’ve dined at Char staff attentiveness has been lacking.

    Char - JacksonResponded on January 16, 2023Hi Jim, thank you for the review! I'm very sorry to learn that service was lacking for you and your guests. Our team is thoroughly trained to provide timely, attentive service to each and every guest, so it's disappointing to learn that we fell short on execution during your visit. I have passed this along to our management team to review with our staff; thank you for taking the time to pass along your feedback. We appreciate your patronage and hope to see you back again soon!

    We chose Char for its lovely ambience. It was our 40th wedding anniversary celebration meal. We were treated very well, almost like we were the only customers in the room. It was so, so busy though. They handled the crowd beautifully. Such smooth ease throughout entire restaurant. Everything was served hot, in time and with beautiful presentation. Our server, Jake, was on point! He was very Professional and attentive to us. Jake will be a server we will always remember for his gallant personality and hard work to provide everyone in his area the special attention they needed. We had NO complaints on any of the food either. It was outstanding! We had the crab Benedict, crab claws and a caramel cheesecake. The kitchen staff got everything right on the food and the timely manner of cooking it. Again, if I could pin down one thing....it would be how Char handled the volume of people dining for Sunday brunch. It seemed effortless for them. That in itself is something very hard to achieve and to come by. They do this magically, all with their genuine smiles and hard work. Char is Jackson's gem and one other restaurants could learn a few things from! Thank you Char for being a part of our 40th year together. We hope to celebrate more of them with you!

    The martini was not a Kettle 1 vodka that we requested! The plan was very noisy. The meal was horrible, suppose to have been a “blackened black fish” it was mostly fried green tomatoes, We could hardly find the fish! This restaurant has gone down hill.

    We ordered cocktails and wanted to enjoy them before we ordered but was constantly distracted by the server wanting to take our order. When we did order, the entree arrived soon after we were served our salads. 😠

I am so sorry to hear that we dropped the ball on the arrival of your entree course, and I regret how this affected your overall experience with us.

Thank you again for you patronage; we look forward to seeing you again soon!

    Seriously disappointed after all the rave reviews that prompted us to book. My husband and I ordered drinks as soon as we were seated. They didn’t arrive before the apps or even before the main course. We were midway through entrees before they showed up - one was perfect, one not what was ordered. The manager was reportedly finally dispatched to make them after our 3rd inquiry and server response that they were a little backed up at the bar. Could have forgiven this but my gumbo arrived not even lukewarm, same as my Sin City shrimp entree which wasn’t even warm enough to eat. Server was advised and her response was oh sorry about that as she cleared the full plate off the table. On the upside my hubby enjoyed his steak and baked potato which were actually hot. Our drinks were comped but that felt much too little too late. I can’t say that I’ve ever had such a bad experience in a fine dining establishment.

    Char - JacksonResponded on December 30, 2022Thank you for your recent visit to Char. I am sorry to hear about your experience and regret that we missed the mark here. It sounds as though you did not receive the level of professional, timely service we are proud to provide our guests. While it is true that we were short staffed, there is no reason for a manager to not come personally speak with you following the delays you had experienced. I sincerely apologize for this misstep and have shared your feedback with our team. We are always open to hearing from our guests and appreciate you taking the time to share yours with us so that we can improve. We do hope that you will give us another chance to prove that we are fully capable of serving a delicious, hot meal with service to match. Thank you again for your patronage.
