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.

W!e arrived at Char a bit past 3 pm, expecting to have a limited menu and distracted service on Memorial Day. True, we HAD e-mailed them, and had been told that they were open and gladly serving, but still…. Happily surprised, we were, with the grace of lunch AND dinner choices, along with a lovely wine list. Adrian, our server,... More

We go to Char several times a month and the quality of food and excellent service can always be counted on. Many times we sit at a table in the bar (open seating) and Lindsay will see us walk in and have our drink on the table before we can sit down!! Many of the portions are big enough for... More

I love the appetizers. I've tried them all. And the steaks are to die for. Nice place to go for a corporate gathering or a more intimate meal. You will enjoy the atmosphere and the food!
