Char is one of our favorite lunch spots in Jackson. If you don't have a reservation it's best to get there before 11:30, or wait till 1:00. Lots of very good choices plus daily specials. Hard to go wrong here.

Steak filet is a staple in in all Amercian restaurants as far as I can make out. Char is a little better though. Their filet with crab meat and lobster is something special. I asked for medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. Their wine list is exceptional and the service well above standard. Definitely worth finding if you're... More

Really enjoyed this little spot! It is a classy place but not to classy to wear jeans and be comfortable. It is a great date spot. The waiter did a great job and the food was excellent. I had the surf and turf which came with a filet mignon that tasted fantastic! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

This is a nice place, white tablecloths, good steak, excellent drinks. The service was a bit slow, our waiter had a large party that took most of his time. That is why the very good rating verses an excellent.

Went to Chars with large group and ordered a small filet. It was avg. as was the salad. Nothing really worth noting. It was crowded for a Thursday night. Our waiter was very good.

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

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
