Excellent service by Richard. He was friendly, engaging and attentive. We had a great experience. The appetizers Fried Green Tomatoes, Bread with tasting butter and Crab Cakes were awesome. We had the Redfish and Duck breast were generous in portion. It was fresh and delicious. The dessert was Butter Crunch - it was very good and rich in flavor. It was my friend's first visit and she was highly impressed. We will be back.

The bread and butter appetizer is a must. Filet steak is one of the best in town. All vegetables were unique and seasoned wonderfully. May be our new favorite restaurant in Memphis. Can't wait to try other dishes.

My salmon was raw in the middle, the corn was soupy, the plating was messy and Caesar salad had so much dressing that it made the salad soggy. The 2 waiters that serviced us were very nice and tried to be accommodating. There was also a party of 6 that were extremely loud that you couldn’t even hear yourself think. This is my second bad experience at this location. The Char in Nashville is so much better.

Thank you for your recent visit to Char. I sincerely apologize for the disappointing experience and regret how this affected your overall perception of our restaurant. We are always happy to rectify any errors, and I understand our Manager was able to step in while you dined with us to acknowledge our shortcomings and remove the salmon and creamed corn from your bill.
