Great service, nice location, good parking/access, drinks and desserts are very well made, portions of food are fantastic, nice variety across full menu. Very affordable given the quality of food and service. We’ll be back!
Ordered from the lunch menu, food was great, nice portion sizes, and not too expensive. We loved the fried green tomatoes also! Service was great, no complaints. Will be back again!
Very loud, food was mediocre. But service was good!
Thank you for your recent visit to Char. It's wonderful to hear that service was enjoyed, but I am sorry to learn that you weren't blown away with your selections. Mediocrity is far from what we strive to serve our guests, so it is disappointing to learn that we came up short of providing you with a five-star meal. If you have specific feedback that you could share with us, we'd love to hear from you!
The food service ambience was. Awesome. Nice quiet
Food was very tasty and the server was very pleasant and efficient
The service and food were very good. All employees were masks and wore them correctly. They have a good wine selection.
I ordered shrimp and grits. The food had a good flavor how’re the grits were cold. My husband enjoyed his steak.
Thank you for your recent visit to Char. We never want guests leaving with anything shy of a five-star meal, so it's disappointing to know that we fell short here. Please know we are more than happy to replace anything you are not fully satisfied with, though I do apologize that your grits were not served at the proper temperature. I've shared your feedback with our culinary team for review; we appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us and hope you'll return again soon.
Fabulous, as always. The wait staff, the managers, the chefs and bartenders do a wonderful job of making us happy.
Excellent food and service.
The restaurant is always good.
Great night and great food. Celebrated our anniversary and will be coming back!
This was my first time visiting Char on Highland. I wanted to try them because of the recommendation of their fried catfish but unfortunately when I got there myself and my mom Max our hostess informed us they had stopped serving at 2:00 so that was disappointing. It will be hard to visit during their lunch due to my work schedule. I wanted to leave after that but we ended up ordering a burger and fries.
Hi Bernita, thank you for your recent visit to Char! While it's true that our lunch specials are only served until 2pm, we do offer a variety of other seafood dishes all day long that you may enjoy! A few options we would recommend include the no filler crab cakes, crab claws and cornbread-dusted redfish. We appreciate your patronage and hope you'll return to try some of our other dishes soon!
Always an excellent choice. Service and food was outstanding.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner, first time at Char. The host was friendly, service very professional. The steak was outstanding, shrimp and grits very good, rich and buttery. The spinach/bacon app was amazing. Wine prices more reasonable than similar restaurants. We will return for sure.
Thank you for the wonderful feedback, Gayle! We are excited to learn that your recent celebration at Char was an outstanding one. Please join us for a steak again soon!
The food was fresh and delicious. Kyle took good care if us.

Great food great service
It took the staff seven minutes before they came to take my order. Out waiter left for the day and never told us. We had to ask for ourselves do to our waiter never returned for the day. It literally took another 5 minutes for the new waiter to return with water. The restaurant wasn’t busy due to social distancing . It was only about six couples in on the dining side. Service was awful. Food was good.
I'm so sorry to learn about your recent visit to Char. This type of service is unacceptable, and I sincerely apologize that we failed to provide you with a nice dining experience. We'd love to learn more about when you visited; would you mind sharing your contact information with us at your earliest convenience? Thank you in advance for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Nice evening and great service.. The crab cakes were not our liking.. but the spinach crisp was fantastic as well as the Filet... We did celebrate my son's 21st birthday with a great Red Wine Selection. Nice to get out ... COVID-19 had us down.. TY
Hi Shana, thank you for the review! We appreciate you choosing to celebrate your son's special day with us.
