Service was excellent. I had the pecan crusted Blackfish and it was terrific. I would definitely dine there again.

Overall good. The waiter dumped the liquids from the Tomato tower on the table and almost in my lap. Redfish was delicious but I would prefer a thicker filet. Crab cakes are always delicious and my son really liked the veal. The caramel cheese cake was fantastic.

I’ve been to char several times, and tonight the food was just ok, but the service was terrible. It took forever for us to be served, and his excuse was we were talking. Also, I was overcharged for my wine, and when I brought it up, he didn’t offer to take it off.

We had a wonderful brunch at char. We had the crab cake appetizer and the eggs Benedict. They were wonderful. Love the no filler crab cake. I love eggs Benedict. It did not disappoint. They had a trio playing the saxophone, banjo and it was delightful. Felt like a little taste of New Orleans. Highly recommend

I love the atmosphere but I didn’t like being seated near a group of loud drunk women. Once they left the relaxed feel of this place – was able to be appreciated . I definitely would return to try more dishes. We had the spinach crisp appetizer and it was delicious. Then we ordered a surf and turf chef special along with another special of the night. The butter crunch cake was 🔥. It deserves an award! Service was well-timed, very friendly and our waitress was nice enough to take our picture.

Char has a great atmosphere. The food is excellent. I’ve noticed on busier nights the service is a little slower than desired but still a good experience over all. I frequent this restaurant often.

Outstanding, exceptional food (always cooked to perfection), atmosphere, and service!!!! The best filet and grilled fish I've ever had!!! Bar with live piano music is nice for a pre meal cocktail; good ambience. Servers work together and are extremely knowledgeable, efficient and attentive to customers to every detail.

My husband and I decided to go for brunch and never been here before but heard the brunch was good. I had the chicken and waffles and thought it was pretty good. My husband had the chicken special and was not very happy with it. The chicken was very bland and needed seasoning. The smash sweet potatoes he had was really good. We had the pecan pie for dessert and it was really great. It was a really nice restaurant and the service was really good. We also thought the price was not bad. We would never go without making reservations. Since we had reservations we did not have to wait.

Took our grown children and their significant others here for brunch. Music is great. Food was good. We were seated in very back of restaurant - not best spot. Loud lady two tables over so it was noisy. Experience was good overall, though, and we would go again.

I took my girlfriend to Char for our first Valentine's together (belated as we only see each other on the weekends). We both absolutely loved it, and she was thrilled with how nice everything was. Our server was also extremely nice in giving us time, as well as tips, when ordering - despite that they were busy at the time. We both love a good wine as well, which to that they had a wonderful selection.
Char is honestly highly recommended for anyone looking for a night out that leans toward the finer dining side, even looking to impress, or make a memory together.
Will definitely go back again sometime in the future!
