I have eaten here plenty of times on business meeting, holiday gathering and just the wife and I. I have never had a bad experience here. The food is great and so is the service.

W!e arrived at Char a bit past 3 pm, expecting to have a limited menu and distracted service on Memorial Day. True, we HAD e-mailed them, and had been told that they were open and gladly serving, but still….

Happily surprised, we were, with the grace of lunch AND dinner choices, along with a lovely wine list. Adrian, our server, was a delight!

We enjoyed terrific gumbo, "no-filler" crab cakes and a maple-fired salmon. Great fare for a holiday lunch, and we will return when we are in Jackson.

One caveat: This was the third time we had tried to dine at Char. They stay busy, and usually have a wait, so an off-hours visit is NOT a bad idea.

Many thanks to Adrian for making this a wonderful experience.

We go to Char several times a month and the quality of food and excellent service can always be counted on. Many times we sit at a table in the bar (open seating) and Lindsay will see us walk in and have our drink on the table before we can sit down!! Many of the portions are big enough for my husband and I to split. We especially enjoy the blackfish, chicken picatta, free range chicken, & spinach crisp appetizer. The carmel apple dessert is my all time favorite. Be sure to sign up for their frequent diner card!!

I love the appetizers. I've tried them all. And the steaks are to die for. Nice place to go for a corporate gathering or a more intimate meal. You will enjoy the atmosphere and the food!

The best thing I enjoyed about char was the atmosphere. The lights are dim and mood is quaint. This particular night a pianist entertained the bar area and he was taking request. Not to mention, they have an awesome martini selection. My wife ordered the birthday cake martini and she loved it.
