Went for a meal on a public holiday and there was no where near enough staff rostered on had to wait in a huge line to order as only one person in charge of both food and drink orders. Waiting in a huge line during...COVID isn't very COVID safe.... Food was pretty good but was way over priced especially with 15% public holiday surcharge.More

A Tuesday night, hard to find a place open in Ipswich - found Char'd and it suited us well. 6 diners aged 16 - 68. All meals well presented, good size. 2 had salmon mains which was delicious and I believe those who had steaks...enjoyed them as well. Tried most of the desserts and all were good. Well priced too. Would go here again.More

Food was over priced and terrible , ordered the most expensive steak on the menu to which I came out cold vegetables were not cooked and mash was powdered “quick mash” . After having two bites I approached the chef in the kitchen myself to...which I got laughed at and told to have a nice night . The only thing good about char’d is the drinks menu.. Go to steakhouse bakehouseMore

The meals were terrible, the chef couldn’t even cook basic vegetables properly, steak over done and staff not aware of new menu. When we spoke the manager he deflected the situation and had excuse after excuse, he said we were very busy tonight and no...apology was offered. $250 worth of meals.. My advice go to Bakehouse Steakhouse.. We won’t be back here..More

This place is always hit & miss but we decided to chance it for our anniversary dinner. Service & food quite good. Always takes a while to get the food. My husband’s eye fillet was medium/well done - not medium/rare as requested. Mentioned to the...waitress who went to ask the manager about it. They did offer another but hubby had already eaten most of it so he accepted the offer of a free drink. Dessert a big disappointment. Nothing on the menu I wanted so went next door to Plantations who always used to have a great assortment of fresh desserts. Chose a strawberry tart- STALE!!More

Just wanted to say what a great job everyone is doing here. My partner and I went for dinner to celebrate our anniversary and the hospitality was great, the food was top notch despite the limited menu and we overall enjoyed our night. Even before...the whole pandemic hit, we have celebrated here many times due to the reasons previously stated. Keep going team, you are doing a great job despite the limitationsMore

We've had great dining experiences here and they've adapted very well in light of COVID19 challenges. We continue to get excellent food and service via takeaway, even in a time of disruption. Staff and management are consistently kind, helpful & thoughtful.

From its beginning as a Swags, to the absolute gem of a steakhouse it is now, Char’d is well worth a visit. The food is incredible, the facilities tied in well with the hotel next door, and with ample seating and brilliant atmosphere it’s perfect...for a date, or celebration.More

I had a poor view of this place and said so in Oct 2015 but I thought I would give them another go to see if they had picked up their service and quality of menu offerings. We were 4 for lunch on a Wednesday,...only about a dozen people in the restaurant so service was satisfactory, I was shocked at some of the menu prices but that is probably just me but over a kilo of tomahawk beef steak for almost $80 seemed a lot to me. We navigated the menu and ordered the Wednesday special of Ribs and Wings and the from the main menu - Pork and Prawn Noodles. The ordering and delivery of meals was timely - no complaint there and the meals were piping hot. Meal sizes were quite good, the noodle dish was excellent, the ribs were good but the wings were quite ordinary - just deep fried breadcrumb wings - they could have had some spice in the crumb mix to jazz them up a bit. Wait staff and kitchen met my request for fresh chopped chili on the side at no extra charge - well done. Overall I will be going back and I won't wait nearly 5 years next time.More
