I've been to this restaurant many many times on my trips to Jackson. It's located in a very nice spot off of I 55 North. The steaks are great and the private meeting rooms are great. They have some very friendly bar tenders as well. A must see when you're in town.

Always a good choice for lunch with a girl friend. Very good wine selection. Salad with fresh fruit and salmon fillet. Also the buttery brickle cake was a good dessert selection and big enough to share.

My favorite restaurant in the area! My friends and I visit at least 1-2 times per week for the great lunch and dinner. Great atmosphere and I truly enjoy visiting the restaurant. My 6 year old daughter even tells people that Char is her favorite restaurant.

Had dinner on Sunday, July 3 and it was excellent. Our server was friendly and professional, and offered good suggestions. I had the steak salad and fried green tomatoes; my spouse had the salmon, which was perfectly medium rare (as he'd ordered). Good wine selection and generous cocktails.
