    The food was excellent, served in a timely fashion and hot or cold as the dish dictated. The drinks were also top notch and full bodied. To make it all even better, A.J. (our server), was the absolute best. Not only really good at the standard stuff, she was so welcoming and helpful it makes us want to go back to Char more often. Excellent experience and highly recommended!

    Hostess was less than cordial. I had a reservation and asked her for a quiet booth near the windows so my wife and I could talk. She took us to a booth at the end next to all the traffic, facing into the bar area, backing up to a booth with 6or 7 people talking loudly. There were many other booths available. When we finished our meal we walked past her at the hostess desk near the door. She was too busy playing with her phone or reading something to look up and say Thank you and please come back. Very rude. Too bad.

    Char - JacksonResponded on November 8, 2022Hello, thank you for your recent visit to Char! I'm so sorry to hear that you and your wife experienced anything less than a friendly, warm welcome from our staff-- this is far from the level of hospitable service we are proud to provide our guests with. I will be sharing this feedback with our management team to address accordingly. We appreciate you sharing your experience with us so we can improve, and sincerely hope you will visit us again in the near future. Thank you again for your patronage!

    This is a nice place, but the food was not up to the five star rating. There was nothing wrong with it, but it was not what we expected for five stars. We doive 45 miles to get there for Sunday Jazz Brunch. We made a reservation for 11:30, which is during the hours their web site advertised live jazz. We were seated promptly and had good service, but the only jazz we heard was coming from the sound system. The live band was arriving at 1:00 as we left.

    The food was amazing as usual as well as the alcoholic beverages. Service was lacking. The service/waitress seemed overwhelmed and would disappear. The kitchen ran out of broccolini. We had to chose another side. We had gratuity added to ticket for a table of four. It took unnecessary time to have the ticket/bill changed. Overall, we has a good time but spent too much time dining due to the waitress being so slow.

    Char - JacksonResponded on October 24, 2022Hello, thank you for your recent visit to Char! We appreciate you choosing to dine with us. It's a pleasure to learn that you enjoyed your food and drinks, although it's disappointing to hear of the delays in service you experienced. That's certainly not the type of attentiveness we strive to serve our guests, and I apologize for how this detracted from your experience. We'll be sure to share your comments with our management team to address with our staff internally. Thank you again for taking the time to share your feedback; we hope you'll return again soon!

    The food never disappoints at Char and we were able to enjoy our favorites, crab claws, crab cake with no filler and the most lovely filet. The only downside this night was the service was a tiny bit off their game. One hostess was stocking silverware and dropped her loads of knives and forks into the holder so abruptly that everyone nearby jumped 😂 and the food runners were busy and didn’t check our ticket for special requests (we had asked for comeback sauce for the crab claws - try it, it’s wonderful!). These are minor imperfections and to offset those I have to share that there was one young man who was setting tables in our area who could tell we were looking for our server and he came right over and took care of the matter for us right away. That was the service we enjoy at Char - attentive and welcoming. So maybe they aren’t perfect (me too!) but Always a pleasure and one of our very favorite restaurants anywhere!

    We had a reservation, but had to wait 15 mins before being seated. The waitress didn't offer clean silverware after having an appetizer. I had to ask for it. Some of the food was lukewarm, which was not what I expected.

We are committed to providing our guests with five-star food and service, and rely on our patrons' feedback to make it right should any issues arise during the meal.

    Char has been my go to for many years. The food is definitely some of the best I’ve ever eaten. I was a bit surprised that my favorite filet has gone from a lunch rate of $34.00 to $43.00 in 3 months. However, everything was delicious, as usual.

    We love to eat at Char! We would not eat there in the future unless there is security outside. It was noon and we were only in there for less than an hour. Our car was parked directly in front of Char facing the Interstate. Someone attempted to break into our car. One side was damaged. The other side they had no luck with getting in either. here appears to be no security anymore in the parking lot. Char has to get Security!

    Everything was perfect!! We were greeted by friendly employees and seated quickly. Our server, Jake, was friendly, attentive and professional. The food was delicious and we ate it all!! Plus there was a musical group playing that just made it a very joyful and happy experience. The tables are far enough apart that you don’t feel like people you don’t know are at your table. The price is very reasonable and the choices are abounding. Also the restrooms were open and lovely even with a water crisis in Jackson. Char is our favorite place to dine .
