The Char was packed when we go there so there was a little bit of a wait, but it still took three hours from start to finish. If you are in a hurry a busy weekend night is probably not the right place to be. It was well worth the time! The food was very good. We were hungry so... More

We went on the recommendation of the staff @ the (close by) Holiday Inn. I wouldn't say we were disappointed, but we weren't "overwhelmed." I'd describe the setting as above average, the service attentive and the food just ok. The evenings highlight were fried frog legs. Tasty and perfectly battered. On the other hand the ribeye was very thin, fatty... More

We had waited a few years to experience this resturant so when we found ourselves passing the area we stopped. It was quaint, a beautiful setting and we had an engaging waitress. The food? Although "fresh" the sautéed mushrooms and black beans seemed to have been a day old. I'm sure it wasn't. The filet was average. Lamb was tasty,... More

On our travels home we decided to have a steak dinner on our last night and ended up at Char. We only waited about 15 min for a table and once seated we enjoyed friendly service and good food. The only complaint I had was the salad seemed wet - and this may be caused by the diced tomato's on... More

Great food and service at The Char! Here for a business meeting and enjoyed. I had the filet which was cooked perfectly to mid rare as requested. Trey behind the bar was great along with the hostess Darian were awesome. Will definitely come back when in the area.

Bragoli is a must. My favorite dish. As a regular visitor over the years, I do not need a menu. Just House Salad, Twice Baked Potato and a Double Bragoli. Perfect!!!!

My wife and I ate at the Char on Valentines Day. We both had great food and great service. There was a special strawberry lemonade drink which was very good. I ate a rib eye steak which was very tasty and my wife got scallops and was very happy with them. The escargot appetizer was a treat that you cannot... More
