“Best food in Cookeville!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012 via mobile

We come to Char at least once a week and it's by far the best restaraunt in Cookeville! The staff is amazing and they have a new menu that is to die for! Best steaks and burgers I've ever had!

“I usually love Prime Rib, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

They advertise it as one of their specialties and I've tried several times, thinking it would be better, but it has never been that juicy, tender, flavorful cut of meat that I anticipated.

Sandwiches, service and drink selection is good, but I've never had an outstanding meal there.

“Great food! Great service! Great music!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

Our large group enjoyed great service and wonderful food at Char. The menu selection is varied. Our group included a toddler, vegetarians, and meat-lovers. Everyone's meal was perfect. And, we also enjoyed staying after dinner to hear live music performed by The DanBerrys. We will definitely eat here again!

“Great steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Had the best ribeye steak in months. Priced right, too. Was recommended by hotel clerk. Service was very attentive, but not intrusive. Highly recommend.

“Delicious Prime Rib”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

CHAR is a great restaurant in Cookeville, TN. It is located on the square across from the courthouse. I highly suggest trying the Prime Rib. It is very tender and tasty. Everything I have ever tried there was very good, but the Prime Rib is definitely my favorite.
