My wife loved her meal. Mine was over cooked (burned) and bland. I should have ordered the special. Will try it again.

I usual come on Sundays. The fried chicken is almost always great. However, for last couple visits the chicken was not all that great. One visit, I had to send it back because it was too greasy. The second piece was great. The most recent time the chicken wing was a bit tough and not crispy. I didn’t send it back because I had enough to eat.

Char was a dissapointment. We had made a reservation but still had to wait for a table and then had to wait for service. The waitress was friendly and polite. The food was a miss. Very chewy duck and tough Veal Oscar. We didn't even stick around for dessert

Char maintains a reputation for very good food choices at reasonable prices. With the exception of the ambient noise level, it is one of the better places to dine in the metro.

I had requested to have Caroline T. as the server, as she had shone on two previous visits. She made the difference this time, and deserves to be complimented on her bearing and poise. The food is excellent and a good value. The wine is excellent but overpriced. The noise makes conversation difficult in a booth but might be manageable sitting next to one another at a table or side-by-side in a booth. Next time I will try for 2pm and see if the crown has thinned enough to help reduce the sound level.

I am from NY and travel frequently to see clients in Jackson. I ALWAYS have my business lunches at Char. It works perfectly as I usually stay at the Hilton up on County Line Road.
The atmosphere is very pleasant - formal enough for serious business discussion, but friendly enough to make everyone feel at home. The food is always very good and very reasonable priced. Only negative was the young lady who wanted to put me and my guest all the way in the back room all by ourselves. I asked if we could have a table in the "carpeted section" so we could hear each other speak a little easier, to which she needed to make a call to get approval. She should be empowered to make those decisions on her own. I will definitely be back for more.

Our server did a great job, he stayed on top of the details of our order. He described the specials very well. The atmosphere was great except a woman with small children who were annoying. A couple on a special date do not want to hear a kid's phone playing annoying music. The food was tasty with good flavor, my steak was cooked well and very tender. I enjoy going when I have the opportunity.

Char is usually good, but this meal was poor. Despite having a booking we were placed in a back room with several noisy large groups. Service was poor - our waiter tried to deliver our food to other tables first! Our food was dried out - felt as if it had come from right under the microwave - certainly not up to usual Char standard. disappointed!

I was disappointed in the food. There were 3 diners. One had fish (good), one had the roast beef plate lunch (good), I had the (undercooked) roast chicken with the (cold in the middle) dressing and cabbage (good).
I eat there fairly regularly with clients and although it is a nice and convenient venue the food has gotten below par. The service is always great and the staff is always friendly and helpful. All of that factors in but it's a place to eat. I expect a hot lunch to at least be warm and thoroughly cooked.
Can't wait for Bravo to reopen.
