We really enjoyed our dinner here. We weren't sure where to go for dinner on our overnight business trip but we're glad we chose this place. The food and service were both really good. The duck breast and cowboy ribeye were both great. The "caramel crunch Apple" dessert was amazing and I'm not even a big dessert fan. The bar... More

This place is popular due to they "hype". The wait to be seated was extremely long. The food was bland. All of my coworkers agreed. I will say that the service was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly, attentive, and accommodating.

We loved everything that we have ordered. The duck breast was cooked to perfection. The scallops were scrumptious. The cream spinash was excellent. Even the coffee tasted better than other restaurants. Will definitely cone back again.

We visited on NYE and everything was wonderful. Perfect steak every time! The no filler crab cakes appetizer is amazing and salmon was delicious. NYE dinner was busy but service was impeccable.

We stopped here after a disappointing museum tour. The service was great and the food delicious. Would love to have one of these where we live.

Cowboy ribeye encrusted without flavor. The steake appeared to flame broiled under pilot burner (gas stove owners know it's the quickest way to brown or burn food). It seared the lack of flavor right in. The sides spinach and mashed potatos were alright. This dining experience was not worth the $50.00 for the meal.

Food, staff & atmosphere all rank top notch! Everything I've tried in the menu is delicious! Wait staff is very attentive and professional. Desserts are absolutely the best you'll find anywhere. Great place to go for a quiet and peaceful meal... unlike so many places you go now where you can't even have a conversation because of the blaring music.

CHAR is one of my favorite places to eat. The food is always good. I love the crab claws and the thin fried onion slices. Their steaks are the best. They have the best flavor. I also like the scallops. Their side dishes are large enough to share. The best thing I love about CHAR is the service you receive.... More
