“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

You can go in jeans, casual or get all dressed up. The steaks are outstanding and so it the service. The house salad dressing is the one to try. I had pork chops that just melted in your mouth. You won't be disappointed

“Best restaurant in town---bar none!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Easy-to-find location (less than five minutes from the Interstate), but would have been worth a longer drive. Went twice (both times for dinner) duing a four-night trip to Beckley, and sat at the bar each time. Had two of the best martinis of my life, as well as some excellent but quite-inexpensive glasses of wine. Outstanding beef and seafood dishes. I would be a regular there if I lived nearby (I'm from out of state).

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was picked during an overnight stay in Beckley because of the reviews in tripadviser. What a delightfull restaurant this is. Although giving off the appearance of a fine dining establishment we were very comfortable in our casual summer clothing. Our waitress was attentive and very knowledgeable on what the menu offered and even made suggestions based on the restaurants specialties. I had the bone in rib steak, the special of the night, and my wife had the small tenderloin. Both meals were delicious and the accompanying house salads were amazing. The meals were reasonably priced and we would not hesitate at stopping at The Char when we are in Beckley again.

“Awesome steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

This restaurant is definitely fine dining. However, you will fine yourself comfortable there even in jeans, as we found ourselves traveling and given this recommendation from a local when asked where to get a good steak. Everything is 5 star- from the salad, to the server, to the great steak we enjoyed. I love supporting the locals (as opposed to chain restaurants) This does not disappoint!

“Char still has it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Near perfect meal and service. We all had escargot, which we don't see as often as we once did. It was superb. Wife didn't care for the vinegary blue cheese house-made salad dressing. Everything else was wonderful--stuffed sole, bracioli, stuffed potatoes, chocolate dessert, breads, and service. We highly recommend it, passing through or a night out.
