Surpassed my expectations!

We had a small work luncheon here,and it was wonderful. The staff was excellent and the food was even better. You are given generous portions, and the prices are very reasonable. We all enjoyed our meal and left very pleased.

We had their only private room for a family gathering of people from a number of cities. Minimum $550 in food and drink required for the room. A little cramped for our group but not bad. Food was mostly very good and good value for the money but one dish got sent back as it was cooked into a lump... More

I am usually a big fan of Char especially for their daily specials (Wednesday Fried Chicken and Friday Fried Catfish), but I was there for a baby shower and needed a quick dish. I ordered the Ceasar Salad with Salmon and specifically asked for it to be cooked well done (I'm a breastfeeding mother). It came out pretty much raw... More

We sat in the bar for a Friday night supper. It takes me back to the days of dining with my parents with the piano and the vintage songs, the dark wood paneled bar, etc. I'm nostalgic so I enjoyed it. The Chicken Piccata was to die for! Best I've ever had. The Chili Fried Oysters were great too!

We recently stayed overnight in Jackson and had the opportunity to again dine at Char. It is one of our favorites places in Jackson. Our server, Adrian Davis, was wonderful!. She was attentive, but not obtrusive. She made sure we continually had everything we might need. We enjoyed the chili appetizers for a start. They were light, fresh and perfectly... More

Joyous surprised!!!!!!!!!!! The cowboy ribeye has taken its top spot. This was a cowgirls dream to home on the range. The crab claws were excellent too (fried to perfection) !!!!!!!!!!! The grill master must have returned and booted out the oven broiler. Well, my hats off to the chef and my stirrups booting out the oven broiler. I can truly... More

The food and service was great. It has nice atmosphere. I enjoyed my dining experience. The crab cakes were tasty and seasoned to perfection. My Chargrilled Mahi was a delightful surprise. It was served over cheddar grits and grilled asparagus and finished with lump crab meat,

I have been to this restaurant plenty of times and so I decided to write a review to share this place with other people who are looking for great food. My wife and I and another couple have standing Sunday reservations due to the great food and even better price. They offer daily lunch specials- a meat with two vegetables.... More

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
