Great food, service lacking....

When we arrived , we were greeted and promptly seated. The food was great here, but the service was terrible. Once we received our entrees, our server only came back once and we asked for drink refills and never got them. We got our refills when he brought our check.

Great atmosphere. Steak is the bomb.com but chicken was a lil bland but that what I get for ordering chicken at a steak house. Overall would recommend this place.

I went to Char with my husband a several friends. The atmosphere was great. My entree was okay. For the price I wish it was much better.

Char has a menu varied enough to suit almost all tastes. The service is as good as it comes. Always attentive. The lunch menu is served quickly enough to get one back to work, but never rushed. Have not had a bad meal there, not even a mediocre one.

My favorites are the crab claws, the gumbo and the wedge salad. My family likes the Char salad with fried chicken.

Char is our "go to" spot for a nice lunch. The service is always top notch. And the kitchen is willing to make substitutions and additions to suit your taste. Pasta, steaks and salads are all excellent. Shrimp and grits seem to be a favorite there. Our favorite lunches are the salmon with a salad and the oyster salad. Try... More

This place was something to write home about. We were passing through on a road trip and wanted to stop for a good meal and man did we win stopping here! We read the reviews and decided to give it a try-we had the strip and it was cooked perfectly! Also the side dishes are tremendous and plenty to share.... More

We've been to Char on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The service is impeccable and and friendly. The owners definitely know how to run a great restaurant! We've eaten everything from Steak to Seafood to pasta and it's always well seasoned, well prepared, and Hot at the table. The dessert menu is to die for especially the seasonal... More

My food was fine (I recommend the daily specials on Wednesdays and Fridays, but I ordered a half and half, sweet and unsweetened tea. This was not my first time visiting and not my first time ordering the unsweet/sweet combo. I kept complaining about it tasting completely unsweet and the server kept saying their sweet isn't that sweet. It wasn't... More
