The crab cakes are the BESTTTTTTTTTT that I have ever had. It’s all crab no breading and the sauce wowwwwwww. I took my 10 yr old niece, she’s a foodie, she gave it a 10( while almost picking the plate LOL). I felt safe there eating during this “2020” time. I will definitely go back there. Oh yeah the French 75 amazing!

It was my first time dining at Char and I must say it was a great experience. I brought my girlfriend for her birthday and my waiter Matt helped me propose to her that night. He was awesome and it was an unforgettable experience. Thanks again Matt, and she said YESSS!!!

Was seriously the best steak I’ve had in awhile. Me and my boyfriend love Texas de Brazil but we prefer this place so much more. Pricey, but delicious and worth the money. This is something hard to find in a steak house.

We went to celebrate our 20 year wedding anniversary. We're were seated right away with our choice of table or booth. The waiter was excellent and explained menu items and offered suggestions. We started with the fried Green tomatoes and crab cakes (excellent splurge) as appetizers. Entrees were the redfish and the ribeye. Both were delicious! We recommend for a special occasion or date night.

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!

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.
