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.

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!
