A group of ten of us went to Char for a post graduation dinner. We made reservation due to the fact that it was on a Sunday and also graduation day for one of the local colleges. We were seated promptly and greeted by our server. Our meal came fairly quickly except for my sweet potato fries. I had to... More

Steak and seafood cooked to perfection. Wait staff went above and beyond to accommodate our group of ten people. There were no complaints from anyone in our party.

I stopped in here for an early dinner. I sat in the bar and was greeted quickly by the server. I was ready to eat, so I ordered a tomato, mozzarella and sliced onion appetizer: it was very good. For dinner I ordered the 8 oz filet (rare) on a bed of turnip greens with three large fried oysters. That... More

EVERY STEP of this experience was flawless and delicious, from the trip to the table to the perfect offering of service, to the food, then to the finish of a delectable dessert to share,as a lagniappe for our table.

Pros and cons. Pros -Very attentive, polite staff -Nice ambiance -Good wine list -Delicious, warm bread! Cons -Food comes out entirely too fast. Wasn't even 25% through gumbo when main was plopped down and plates were pushed around. -Most of the food, while good, was still average, with excepts noted. -The priciest meal, by far, of our entire journey.

This was our first time at this restaurant. I told the waiter I like good steaks and I asked what he recommended. He said get the NY Strip Philadelphia style and I wouldn't regret it. He was so right. That was one of the most flavorful and tender steaks I've ever had. I highly recommend you try this place and... More
