Great restaurants prove they are top notch not when everything goes well for the customer, but rather, when they can successfully navigate the customer pass issues. Char is my #1 restaurant for great food, atmosphere and service. Today I visited Char for an early dinner. Their steaks have always been juicy and super tender. But they had an off night... More

The menu is stale and overpriced for what you receive. The kitchen is inflexible in accommodating special dietary requests. The service is spotty due to a slow kitchen at peak times in addition to poor management and a lack of thorough training.

Good food but not worth the prices. Can get vey loud, depending on the crowd. Dinner for 3 no drinks or dessert. We prefer good food at the right price so you aren't paying for the "in" place to show off.

Excellent atmosphere for Sunday Brunch with great food and music. The wait staff are great and very accommodating. The food is very good and seasoned well. Calling for a reservation is a great idea to save time. Children are welcome for the brunch.

We made a reservation for brunch last Sunday and were so glad we did. The place was packed with the after-church crowd and without a reservation, we would not likely have stayed to wait for a table. It was interesting seeing that people in Jackson still dress up for church and I felt a little under dressed in blue jeans... More

Food was excellent and steaks were Very tender. Wife had special filet crab cakes and shrimp. Crab cakes were pure meat with hardly and filler. Strip steak was very good and loaded in a butter sauce. Deserts were home made and huge. I also had one of the best dirty martini I ever had

Great place for family or business meetings. You can get as sophisticated or eat as down home southern as you choose. I love to take clients to lunch here when I am in town. Great food and good size portions. Awesome waiters that keep your glass full.

The Char Restaurant, located in the Highland Village, trumped all of the others in Jackson thus far with its chic decor, fine dining, and fabulous menu. I loved how it felt like we were celebrating a special occasion just visiting for lunch. Impressive surroundings, an upscale foodies menu, linen tablecloths and napkins, and impeccable service really set Char apart form... More
