Great service and tasty food. My daughter ordered the crab claw appetizer. After only a short time, the manager brought the claws and apologized for our wait. He said he was taking care of the appetizer since we had to wait. We were surprised since it had not been that long of wait. Our meal was prepared to perfection. We... More

Food was over-all pretty good, but when we went there the waitress could not seem to get our order straight after two or more tries. Some in our party gave up and ate the food the did not order or want, but everyone else at the table was being polite and not eating until all were served, so their foo... More

This is a Very Nice restaurant. The atmosphere is serene... They also have a Bar (with a piano player) in it's own area of the restaurant and you can order your meal and a drink to eat at the bar. If you like chocolate, they have a brownie that will cure that craving. The food is good and flavorful.

My husband and I ate here for a lunch date while the kids were in school last week and enjoyed a delicious meal at a great deal (I recommend making a reservation as this is a very busy time for them).

Had the Wednesday Special and it was absolutely delicious. The place was pack but the turnaround on the food allowed us to have lunch and return to work in record time.

I took my mother in law and wife to Char to celebrate my wife's birthday. Even though I've probably eaten there a half dozen times, this was the best one. The NY strip I had was amazing.

What a fantastic dinner and delightful atmosphere. Sat in the bar area to watch the World Series. Great atmosphere without being too noisy. They really hit their mark on the food. Had the pork chop which was superbly cooked. It was on the bone, thick and juicy. Sides are fantastic also.

We came here with a large group of 11 for lunch. The food is always good here. We did have some mix ups with our food with a couple of people getting their food late. The restaurant handled it well taking off the meals from the bill. A true class act.

First time there. Waitress was personable but over loaded. Atmosphere was nice. My ribeye was very tough. Had major expectations for a great steak based on the name of the restaurant and the prices. Disappointed but didn't complain. Doubt we will go back.
