We had a staff gathering there and it was great! The service was fast and they even gave us our own customized menu to help making choices faster and it was great!

My husband and I ate at Char over the weekend and we will definitely be back! We ate around 7:30 on a Saturday out on the patio. I think it would have been quieter inside the restaurant, but the outside was very nice. I ordered a mango margarita, which was very good but very expensive. The bruschetta we ordered as an appetizer is one of the best dishes I've ever eaten.

We both ordered side salads and the white balsamic vinaigrette had a wonderful flavor. I ordered the scallops, which were good but nothing amazing. My husband ordered the shrimp & grits and they were phenomenal... from the shrimp to the mushroom sauce, to the cheesy grits. Each of our entrees were $21 with an additional $4 for each salad. I hear that the lunch menu is a little more reasonably priced.

Overall, we loved Char!

Had reservations several weeks in advance for New Years Eve with 8 of us in the group. There was a set menu and when we tried to order, we were told they were out of most of the menu options. The substitutions we were given were not satisfactory. After all of this, we did not even get a reduction in the price. We are local and love to eat locally, but have been hesitant to return since this experience.

We went for a casual weeknight dinner at Char. We have no complaints. Ate outside in the nice Boone weather. Husband had the lamb, which he enjoyed and he is VERY picky about every bite he takes! I had the tuna which was very good. We had the artichoke and other ingredient flatbread for our app and it was wonderful!
