“Very good Steaks and deserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Known for their steaks, they also have very good lunch specials, pecan pie, and fried crab claws. The bar is active and features a piano player some nights. It can get a little loud at times.

“Amazing lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

It's been a while since I was able to compliment a restaurant without caveats, but my first visit to Char was impressive. Arrived for lunch, about 2:30 in the afternoon. Daily specials were sold out. Had the mozzarella and tomato tower app, which was delicious. Burger and fries were fantastic, even though it seems absurd to be able to give such high praise to a side as simple as fries - but they were just that good. My guest had the ahi tuna salad, and sampling that proved it was also exceeding expectation. Finished with the Carmel cinnamon apple desert (I forget the name,) but was described by our server as their signature dessert and with good cause. Absolutely astounding. Highly recommend if you're in the area. You will not be disappointed.

“Birthday Party”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My husband and I went to celebrate a friend's birthday. Although I'm not a big steak eater, I've been craving red meat, so I decided to go with a steak. It was delicious. The only problem is that I ordered it Medium, and halfway through I realized it was rare in the middle. They were happy to take it back and put it back on the grill. Came out almost perfect! The other issue was my husband ordered the redfish special. It was good, but not hot enough. I assume that had something to do with us being a larger table of guests.

“Comfortable and consistent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is a frequent lunch place for me. The food and service are always spot on ( unlike many restaurants in Jackson).Sit in the cozy lively bar area during the week and watch Jason work the room. I call him a poster boy for bartenders- EFFICIENT is not the word! This guy is a show in himself! You never have to ask for anything- it magically appears! Plus his dry sense of humor is totally entertaining.
