Char, along with the others in the group (Amerigo, Sombra, Anjou, etc.) just do it better that anyone else. The servers are impeccable, the drinks are perfect, and the food is always amazing. I have never had a bad experience here and the short ribs are amazing on Wednesdays at lunch. There have been a couple of times they were... More

I don't often think a restaurant desires a perfect score but this one does. The atmosphere, the hostess, the waitress, the food, the location, were all perfect. We were dressed for travel not dinner but felt comfortable. It is a restaurant where I would have liked to dress up but it was ok that I wasn't. There are great shops... More

My family of four (mother, father, 2 kids ages 12 & 14) were fortunate enough to find this restaurant during a long road trip from Florida to Colorado. The restaurant is famous for steak, which did not disappoint. My daughter and I partook in the appetizers and salad. Our server was lovely. It is a formal restaurant, but the staff... More

I had not eaten in Char in Jackson in the past 7 years so I was rather surprised at how good they have become. My last experience was that they were mediocre at best. We had a dinner there recently only because it was Sunday and very few other restaurants were open in Jackson. Oh my! This place is great.... More

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.
