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.

The service and food were excellent here. I went with the Queen Filet and it was cooked to perfection. Our waitress Patricia was attentive and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Some of the reviews made me think that we had to dress up, but we went causal as we were traveling and it was perfectly fine.

I travel in seven states. This restaurant is one of my top 5 favorites. It's hidden on a small road in Beckley WV but definitely worth seeking out. They have great service, great food, and great views.

For decades the best steak in southern WVA continues to be found a "The Char" where dependable service and quality ambience is only surpassed by great meals!

Started the night out w/ drinks at the comfortable and personal bar. The bartender knew what she was doing and liked to engage w/ the customer. Once we had a table, our wait was by choice, we were served just as soon as we wanted. The escargot was actually in the shell and our entrees were done perfectly. Dessert was... More

We stopped at The Char after researching some of the various restaurants in town on our way through. We were woefully underdressed in jeans and tshirts, but decided that this place would rather have our business. No mistake! Our meals were amazing! The steaks were generous portions and served with nice sides. The salad is unique so I recommend ordering... More

Everything is always clean. The food is great. The service is always kind and courteous to your needs. Sometimes there's a wait but, you can sip on drinks by the cozy fire, while you wait. The food is worth the price. I'd rather go here, than the Outback any day.
