I got the steak and it was delicious. My wife decided to try the duck and also decided to try it cooked the way the chef recommends. When she didn’t like it, they were very gracious and prepared the seafood carbonara for her. She loved that.

Three of us ladies enjoyed a wonderful celebration of our dear friend’s birthday. She was greeted at the door with a birthday wish along with our server Sherryann. The service was exceptional as well as warm and friendly. We started with Fried Green Tomatoes and Pork Rinds, then had the Shrimp and Grits and the Redfish. Both were excellent! ‘Tho full, we had to try the desserts and ordered both the Blueberry Bread Pudding and the Pecan Butter Crunch. They did not disappoint! I definitely look forward to my next visit to Char.

I dined on a Tuesday when the daily special was meatloaf. The meatloaf was extremely salty so I advised my server. She immediately asked how i wished to handle this and I advised her that I would just like to select another meat. I was happy with the sides I had previously selected. I chose the salmon. Unfortunately it was quite under cooked. I did not complain about this but asked for a take out box. The server packed my takeout and noted herself that salmon was undercooked and apologized.

The meat was fabulous but the sides were not. We ordered 4 sides and none of the 5 of us liked them much. We were let down by this, since the prices are very high we expected better.

Made a reservation for my daughters birthday several days before and we were seated in the middle of the room next to the kitchen, plenty of good tables sat empty,while we were seated in a very busy noisy area! Not very happy, 2nd time there, fist time was great, this time makes me not want to come back!

I feel that Char has better steaks than any of the other steakhouses in town, including: Ruth Chris', Capital Grill, Flemings, and Folk's Folly. Their appetizers, soups, salads, and sides also excel. The wine pours are generous. Service is relaxed, but excellent.

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.

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
