Seems like this is the only upscale restaurant in the area, so I expected old, musty and drab, with a similar clientele. Yes, it was a bit musty when we first arrived, but then we were surprised by excellent service (friendly and fast!!), a nice menu, and good food. I got a steak and it was cooked perfectly. My wife...

It seems to be the 'upscale' option in the area. The choices are good, and the prices reasonable, but the food is pretty mediocre and you could tell some of it was frozen, not fresh. I had the special - blackened tuna with Mediterranean pasta. The pasta was really good, and would have preferred a bowl of that and could... More

We dined at The Char yesterday. On arrival we were quickly shown to a nice table by the window overlooking the lake. The waitress greeted us warmly and took our drinks order. After a while she came back and took our food order. Then she brought the salad and we still had not received our drinks. Our salads both had... More

Firstly, the house salad served is by far the best I've ever had in a restaurant. The steak was cooked exactly to my request and was juicy, tender, without any gristle or fat. The key lime pie was very yummy as well!!

Absolutely loved this restaurant! Great location and the staff was excellent. We ordered the Filet appetizer strips and they were to die for. We also had the fried oysters and they were delicious too! Great wine list. Very nice experience! Would definitely go back!

Everything about my experience at this restaurant was superb. The ambiance, the décor and the service were all top notch! The food was incredible. The steak, lamb chops and lobster are worth trying. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for awesome food and a great time in the area.

We had dinner at this place the other night. The waitress was clearly under trained for this level of a fine dine restaurant. She did not know the basics of wine or the basics of a difference between whiskey and vodka. She also didn't know the menu whatsoever. We had lots of questions on the menu that she couldn't answer.... More

I love eating great food and great view over a pond with deer eating outside the window. The service is always great. Try the New York strip awesome to say the least.
