I love The Char. The filet is AMAZING! The sugar snap peas and other sides are also good. However, the salad needs a little help. The Char's filet is very similar to The Alamo if you've ever been there. It melts in your mouth. The cost is on par with any steakhouse like The Outback or other chains. Two people... More

Welcomed by a courteous valet and fireplace, visitors enter the dining room to view a window wall that extends the dining experience to the beautiful creek right outside. The steaks are pretty good, but only slightly above average. I had the stuffed baked potato and it was terrible! I'd have been much better getting a plain and adding the "loaded"... More

If you enjoy pleasant and courteous service, you will be amazed at the scenic view at the Char. The food is the best in Beckley. I love their salad with their own house dressing and the filet mignon is cooked to perfection. I have never been disappointed when I go there. The Char has an elegant atmosphere including the flowers... More

The food is excellent - rustic and yet perfectly designed without oversimplification. The meat is beautifully cooked but ask for rare if you prefer less well done. The waitress and server was extraordinary, far exceeding all expectations and the ambiance is fantastic and pleasant . This was a wonderful evening, well worth the price and memorable in every aspect .... More

Great food and service. Probably the best restaurant in the area. Prices for dinner are higher compared to other restaurants in the area but given the quality of the food, I would say the menu items are priced appropriately. If you're in the are and want a special meal, try The Char.

Some items are a little pricy but food and service is excellent. I had the New York Strip, 14 oz more than I can eat, but it was excellent! Had a salad with baked potato with a glass of red wine...excellent dinner. I would go back.

After two days on the river. Time to eat! The FDA at the hotel recommend this place, and I'm glad she did! The shrimp chowder was the best! The steak melted in your mouth like butter. Only wish I had left room for desert. Next time I am in the area, I will definitely be back! Yum Yum!

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...
