My husband, another couple and I were visiting Memphis from St. Louis, Missouri this past weekend. I googled lunch spots, and lo and behold, Char is .6 miles from our apartment! We decided to go, and Kyle and the food were so perfect, I made a reservation for today! From the fried oysters, to the Brunch menu French toast, to the gumbo, everything was amazing! Very impressed with the service from Kyle (both visits) and the price points and high quality of the food. You'll let yourself down by not eating at this establishment! Wish we had one at home.

Everything was pretty good except the crab cakes. They weren’t as good as they usually are. The crab tasted burnt.
The crab claws were a little over cooked also.

Responded on October 7, 2019

Hi Joseph, I'm sorry to hear that your crab cakes and crab claws fell short this time around. There is no reason these items should not be cooked perfectly every time, and I apologize for how this affected an otherwise nice meal. Please know that we are always happy to replace anything that is less than perfect! I have shared this feedback with our culinary team; thank you for taking the time to share it with us. We hope to see you in again soon!

I had just finished a makeup job and just wanted to sit down and enjoy a good brunch. Ordered the chicken and waffles. It came out 2 minutes after I ordered it. It cane with 2 chicken strips(seemed old or over cooked) and a cold waffle. Asked for some fresh food, basically got the same thing I sent back

The overall experience would have been better, but my server was more concerned with conversing at the bar than with me and my daughter. I literally waited over 20 minutes to catch his eye for his to discern we needed the bill. At 10:30am, he only had my table and another table of 4 so there was no excuse for his lackluster service.

I will be back, but I’m hoping for better service like on my first visit with a large party

Getting our reservations on line in Open Table was so easy. The text from Char's to confirm was good to know that you had us covered. The servers were very professional and friendly. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The only thing that I heard was that the person who ordered the crab cakes is much more used to having them with more of a thin layer of crispness on the outside. Everyone else seemed to really be pleased with their lunch, as well as desserts shared. This is the second time that I have been there and I would go back again.

Hi Kay, thank you for your recent visit to Char! While it's a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed your overall visit, I'm sorry to learn that the scallops were less than five-star worthy. We pride ourselves on serving high quality seafood, so it is disappointing to learn that you did not care for yours.
