Birthday Celebration

We had group of 16 and reserved the private dining room. It was perfect. They let us come in and decorate the room as well as bring in our own cake. The service was great!! Our server was very friendly and fun as we had a group of teenagers celebrating a sweet 16 birthday. We love Char!!!

I had never been to Char, and the evening of July 10, I decided to give it a try. I sat at the bar, and tried to order a drink. I was totally ignored. I found a manager, and he did get me a drink. I had that drink and left. With service like that dining at Char would be... More

It may be that Char was chosen because in the entry, there are pictures of notable Mississippians. One of those pictured is Lyman Hellums, color announcer for Ole Miss football for 41 years. He was our cousin, we were in town for his funeral. We could not get reservations for our size group until 8 PM, so our dinner was... More

A cosy, dimly lit spot with booths for more intimate dining or stools/tables for eating by the bar with sports on TV. Somehow it pulls off both. We had fried oysters and fried green tomatoes which were both OK but quite salty and seemed like mainly crispy batter without much else. We then had salads as mains (probably not the... More

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) !!!!!!!!!!!
