This was a lucky find!! The filet was one of the best I’ve ever had! The fried oysters were crispy and delicious and the pork chops were outstanding!!! The servers were attentive and polite! Don’t miss this if you’re in Beckley.

I brought a friend here for his first visit and he wasn't disappointed. We had the salmon, which was a delight, and finished with my favorite dessert, bread pudding with bourbon sauce.

The food and ambiance were precisely what the doctor ordered for us the other night. And our waitress Laura made it a night to remember.

We went to the Char to celebrate our anniversary. We both had the filet mignon and it was absolutely delicious. The service and the environment are always great. This is a wonderful local place for a great evening of food and enjoyment.

I would especially reserve a table on a weekend and if I had a large party. However, during the week days you don't really need one. Hope this is of assistance.
