We had great service on the patio from Cameron. The large fillet the house salad with chicken was excellent. The drinks from the bar from Jason and Angela were awesome as usual.

Outstanding service as always. Staff was polite as usual. I would highly recommend making a reservation. A wedding party came in before we were seated, but Char was still able to practice social distance. I will continue to visit this location.

My cousins are in town from Houston and I first took them to Char last year and now it’s their favorite restaurant when visiting. We had an 11am reservation. The food was fantastic and our server Darwin (sp) was very attentive and took care of us. My sister is crazy and hopefully we made him smile as well. Mimosas, French toast, chicken & waffles, gumbo, Char salad and crab claws (both sautéed and fried) were AMAZING!!!! Looking forward to our next visit!!!

My husband and I went for his birthday. We did the wine pairing 4 course menu and it was divine! Our server, Daniel, was outstandingly professional, catering, and kind. The restaurant also sent us each a glass of champagne for free as a gift to my husband. We had a wonderful time and will be going back!

I have been to char twice, first time was great, this time terrible. We felt rushed through the entire brunch. We both had ordered champagne to start; waitress asked for our appetizer selection before we received our drinks ( I hadn’t even looked at menu). Then another waiter brought our main course before we had been given our appetizers at all. He said he was just going to “put food under warmer “. Appetizers were mediocre. Main course had clearly been reheated and we sent back. Tried to order a second glass of champagne and was told they were completely out of champagne. The Manager took the apps off the bill but overall meal was terrible

I’m so glad I decided on Char to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. The ambience was perfect with the low lighting and it was quiet but not too quiet. Our server was great and able to answer any questions we had. Her suggestions were spot on also. I can’t wait to visit again!

Of the many great meals at Char, this was mikes away the best. My filet was perfect in every way-cut, prep, temp, flavor- and my partner’s scallops were phenomenal.

We are so lucky to have Char in Jackson. It is not an inexpensive meal but it is the rare place where every dollar from the well made cocktails to the incredible desserts is worth every dollar.

The four of us enjoyed our experience at Char this trip. Two filets cooked to perfection, one fish just right and great scallops. The only reason for 4-stars rather then 5-stars for food was the gumbo. I cannot figure out what to call it, but it wasn't right. Maybe it was the roux was over cooked or maybe the shrimp were over done or the sausage was bland, I cannot be sure, but it wasn't right.

Other than that one issue, the meal was outstanding and my granddaughter enjoyed her cheesecake at the end.

I went for my birthday, put it on the reservation, told the person that was seating us and mentioned it to my waiter. Not a single thing was done to celebrate my bday by the restaurant. They didn’t even say “happy birthday”. I was enormously disappointed. The food was good but doubt I’d go back. I was having a pretty down bday and this didn’t help.

We arrived about 10 minutes early and were greeted friendly and seated immediately. All the food and drinks were promptly brought to our table and we were extremely satisfied. The food was second to none and I will say the salty caramel Cheese cake is a must. Thanks for a great 35th Anniversary dinner. We will be back.
