Amazing service and dinner. I let our server, Skyler, choose my meal and he did not disappoint! We highly recommend the no-filler crab cakes. Also, combination of sautéed and fried crab claws were perfection…. You have to get them both!!! The wedge salad was just...right. Skyler chose the scallops for me and I’m still dreaming of the leak cream sauce. My friend raved over the BBQ shrimp and my fiancé said the filet was the best steak he has had in Nashville this far. We finished the night sharing the peanut butter crunch, although I don’t know how we had room in our bellies. Wonderful atmosphere and amazing staff. We will be back soon!More

We visited during lunch. It wasn’t super busy, but steady. My son enjoyed a burger and the garlic truffle fries were probably the BEST I’ve ever had. Part of my lunch was cornbread dressing and it was, in my opinion, not even close to a...southern cornbread dressing; very bland. The fried green tomatoes were okay, not the best I’ve had but certainly not the worst. The restaurant was very clean and our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu. I would probably try the dinner menu at some point.More

Everything was fantastic! Our waiter Ethan was outstanding, the steak melted in your mouth, the fish superb, and the crab cakes the best I have been had.

True, was a holiday, but our service was absolutely terrible. We got water, then nothing. After 15 minutes , order was taken for appetizers (note: no drink order even though we asked) Crab legs were plentiful but small and tasty...still no drinks. Finally, after third...member of our party went to ask, waiter came to take drink order (no wine, beer menu, so we just took a chance on ordering wine, beer and mixed drinks with no idea of labels or prices). We also ordered dinner at this point. Guess what, our dinners came out after about 20 minutes—-yep, still no drinks. Asked again, drinks appeared ... beer was flat and not cold, wine was sufficient. By this time, we have up on waiter and just keep the drinks. We normally would have ordered a bottle of wine, or maybe more drinks ... restaurant would have made $$. Anyway, the appetizer soup was very good, the wedge salad, excellent, the filet was cold and the potato tasted like it was made Saturday. All in all, I think you have gathered that we won’t be back.More

While visiting in-laws in Nashville, they wanted to treat us to takeout from this place since they've enjoyed it several times in the past. Even though it wasn't the closest place to where they live, they thought it was worthwhile to order takeout from there....Pickup seemed kind of odd since it's located in what looks like an office building and you actually drive around the building. We enjoyed several types of crab claws as apps (so tasty) and I enjoyed my crab cakes, which my mother-in-law also got. I can't speak to the pricing since they paid, but I can definitely say the quality of the food was very good and oh those crab claws!More

Our group recently had a post-Christmas dinner at Char, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Everyone ordered something different--steak frites, filet, redfish, ribeye and barbeque shrimp. All were excellent. The service was friendly and professional, and the atmosphere was pleasant and elegant. We will definitely return.

One of our first dinners out after being cooped up for months was to Char. All of us felt more comfortable being outside so we chose the patio, It was very nice, had umbrellas and was away from the busy street. Our server didn't rush...us with ordering when she saw we were visiting and catching up with friends. Our steaks were great as was the chicken, and salads. When our friend's fries arrived cold, our server replaced them immediately with a new hot order. She was very efficient and courteous. Everything was most enjoyable, we will return.More

Hosted a delicious business dinner here this past week. Service was top notch and everyone was very friendly. Our group mainly ordered steaks which all came out perfect and the sides/salads were delicious. Our waitress was outstanding and very attentive. I look forward to returning....Thank you.More

Good service. But the crab cakes were filled with burned crab. Really degraded the crab. The salad (a wedge with blue cheese dressing was only adequate). The dressing on a wedge normally includes a quality dressing with actual bits of blue cheese. The dressing here...looked like low fat milk). Very nice decor and very nice background music.

Last night my Foodie Buddy and I went to Char Restaurant. when we entered we were warmly greeted and seated immediately. The menu offers a variety of dishes that include some Cajun flavors along with an interesting mix of ingredients. We started with a couple...of beers from Grayton Beer Company called 30A Beach Blonde Ale. This is a slightly sweet Ale but very crisp and refreshing, I will be searching for a six-pack of this beer for the weekend! When asked if you would like bread…say yes. The warm baguette with soft butter is really good! Appetizer: There’s a lot to choose from here and you could design a meal just around appetizers. We shared an order of Crab Claws and I must say TOP 5 of appetizers I have enjoyed! You can get them fried or sautéed or a mix which is what we ordered. Now the fried are good…but the sautéed are incredible so I would recommend ALL sautéed. Don’t be shy…scoop some of the seasoning on the little claw and enjoy. You’ll get a slight amount of heat, but the combination of seasonings with the oil is exquisite. While the rest of dinner was exceptional, I could have done a couple of orders of these with a beer and considered Char to be Heaven on Earth when it comes to appetizers! Dinner: We selected the Tuna Nicoise…a salad that has crisp baby greens, PERFECTLY seared Ahi Tuna, artichoke hearts, tomato, egg, haricot verts, capers, with a honey white balsamic dressing. OK…it’s a salad BUT hands down the BEST salad I have ever enjoyed. The Ahi Tuna filets could have been a meal all to themselves they were that good! The 8oz Filet with a green peppercorn sauce, jumbo lump crab cake, and a loaded baked potato was so darn good. The steak was cooked perfectly and the seared butter crust helped this steak to melt in your mouth. Adding a dollop of the green peppercorn sauce really put this steak over the top and is highly recommended. The crab cake didn’t have a bunch of fillers, mayo, seasoning, or sauces…just pure jumbo crab meat with some herbs and a drizzle of lemon tarragon butter. This was one of the best crab cakes I have had in a very long time and it paired well with the steak! Unfortunately there was no room for dessert but they have some yummy looking offerings. Service was impeccable and overall cost to the enjoyment of the meal…well worth the price of admission!More
