Food was stellar, but overpriced for what is a more corporate chophouse. Wine (3x market) and steaks are a bit elevated from where they should be given the fairly generic options. Starters and desserts are highlights. The service friendly and attentive. Fine for a general dining experience, but nothing particularly stands out to seek it out.

Everything was fantastic. I manage my own place and would be incredibly proud to have such an amazing waitstaff. Everything coming out of the kitchen was excellent. The ambience was perfect. Busy enough to be fun but at the same time my wife and I didn’t have to raise our voices to hear each other speak. Fried crab claws and green tomatoes were perfectly crisp and not greasy at all. That comeback sauce is liquid gold. My Caesar and her wedge were great representations of standby dishes and I am so happy that you serve them traditionally. Some dishes don’t need toying with. Our filets with peppercorn sauce were cooked and seasoned wonderfully.

I can’t remember the last time I went to a restaurant on a Saturday night where the experience was so…stress free.

After tip I spent around $250 dollars. The quality and execution of the food, the great service and the a+ ambience was well worth that amount.

“Prime” Cowboy Ribeye was tough and very rare - when ordered as medium rare. It was not worth finishing. Same with the prime rib. Asking for no spice on the ribeye, the fried tomatoes were quite spicy. The baked potato was ok. Good house wine.

Piano player was excellent and the lighting was good after the sun went down.

Visiting from Alabama and a relative recommended this spot. She had been for brunch and enjoyed it so she figured the dinner would be amazing as well. We were not disappointed. The area is chic with a super cute patio if you'd like to dine outside. Valet parking is available to access other restaurants and shops nearby. The onion rings were plentiful and the fried green tomatoes were pretty good. The bartender was not skimpy with the alcohol, though the drinks lacked flavor. AJ was a sweet and knowledgeable of the menu. We were satisfied but not stuffed at the end of our meal. Everyone got something different and we all enjoyed our entrée!

We arrived early for our reservation and were able to be seated promptly. We sat on the patio and had amazing service from Skylar. He was very attentive and offered good suggestions for cocktails and food. The Fried Green tomatoes were very tasty - lots of flavor and a little kick of spice. We all had steaks. Mine was slightly over medium, but tender and juicy. I like my food temp hot and they did not disappoint. The steak was hot and flavorful as well. My only criticism is that the baked potato as yummy as it was was way too salty. All in all a wonderful experience and tasty food with attentive and friendly staff.

Great evening. Service was excellent, and I'm kicking myself for not remembering her name. Food was good--much a little on the spicy side; garlic mashed potatoes COLD. Good overall though. This place can be a bit noisy when you're seated close to large parties.

We hadn't been to Char for a while, but we will put it back on our "regular" list.
