“A great dinner.”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We went to Char's before Christmas with 3 other couples. The food was outstanding as well as the service. It is in a great location and the atmosphere was wonderful. It is always great when a group like we had goes out and there is a round table so everyone is part of the conversation. We even has the chance to talk to Char and the Chef, both very personable and service oriented.

Reviewed December 3, 2013

Wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Char's last night. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and a great setting along the river. My fish special was great and my wife's steak was tasty. My firecracker shrimp starter was very good and my wife's salad was excellent. We loved the place and will certainly be back.

“Great experience all around”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

From a warm welcome, comfortable bar, great martini's; especially the Espresso and great food, Char's hits on all cylinders! We had a very warm and comfortable experience. The service was friendly, prompt, helpful but un-obtrusive. The menu from appetizer to dessert had great choices, fantastic flavor and good portion size to eat multiple courses without feeling overly full. We will be back!
