Was here on business and had dinner here one evening. The best part of the meal was desert. Their signature desert was a pecan crunch butter cake. It is the reason they get the fourth. Although this is a quality restaurant if you are thinking Ruth's or Morton's, that is not what this is. I would say it is one... More

Here on business and we wanted a nice place for dinner. This place was recommended by one of the folks who lives here, so we figured we'd give it a shot. Outside appearance and location itself had me doubting what I would find. What I found inside was unexpected: a truly first class dining experience. Impeccable service, exceptional food and... More

On way to Florida saw great reviews on TA. We made reservations through TA on the way from Dallas. Greeted pleasantly. Excellent service from Sloan our waiter. Fried green tomatoes, fried nicely. Split a rib eye so favorful; probably Best ever. Then a Giant luscious sweet potato. Wow Outstanding meal and service.

We had a wonderful meal , excellent service,and an enjoyable atmosphere at Char. We all had the scallops served over grit cakes. The scallops were perfectly seasoned and cooked and the combination of scallops, grits, and a delicate suace were perfectly balanced. We enjoyed a crisp Sauvignon Blanc with our meal. The server was attentive without hovering. The atmosphere is... More

I went there with my wife expecting one of the best steaks but it wasn't. The meat was good, not doubt about it but not 5 stars. We asked for medium and they were cooked almost well done. Otherwise crab cake very good and dessert also.

My friends & I were looking for a restaurant to eat late lunch at on Sunday and Char was one of the few in Jackson that was open. Wonderful food, especially the vegetables. Great chicken tenderloins, butter beans, & greens! Wonderful meal, friendly service.

You'll have a great dinner at Char. We had 6:00 reservations on a Saturday night and were seated immediately and the server took our drink order. My husband had a nicely balanced bourbon old-fashioned (they use Knob Creek) and I had a glass of chardonnay. We began with shrimp bisque and crab cakes. The bisque was good, and the crab... More

I came here on business last month and will definitely be visiting on my next trip down. Jackson doesn't have a ton of great culinary options but this is definitely one of them. It has all the normal steakhouse classics but plenty of southern specials to give it a twist. The gumbo is great and the burger is great too.... More

Ambiance is excellent and the food and service are second to none. Definitely worth a visit and there is not a wrong choice that you can make on the menu: steaks, seafood are all amazing.

I have eaten here plenty of times on business meeting, holiday gathering and just the wife and I. I have never had a bad experience here. The food is great and so is the service.
