Char - Jackson Ratings and Reviews

Love to dine at Char. Was telling my husband since our move here in 2014 from Texas this restaurant is my favorite place to dine. I usually get the filet medium with creamed spinach augratin. And we share either the crab cakes or bbq shrimp on grits. As always food was amazing and our sever Jessica was efficient and friendly.
This was actually my first time eating at Chars... And I must say... My experience was amazing. I had made reservations for 4 and was seated promptly as soon as we arrived. The staff was very friendly and very helpful in suggesting entrees to try. The food was exceptional. I also had an alcohol beverage.. Normally drinks are watered down at other place, this was not the case at Chars. I will definitely come back. Only next time... I will bring my HUBBY for a bday surprise. :-)

Food was great, service was even better. I had the ribeye with creamed spinach. It was seasoned well and cooked perfect. My wife had the stuffed blackfish, which was also excellent.

Didn't Live Up to Expectations
I ate at Char several years ago and the food was wonderful. Not so when we dined there a few nights ago. The food was tasteless. The waiter seemed more interested in pushing specials , rather than listening to what we desired. No eye contact from him at all. When we gave our orders, he was scoping out others that were coming into the restaurant, which led to inattentiveness and our having to repeat much of what we stated previously. Not a good experience at all. Won't be back.

The crab cake appetizer and the tomato and mozzarella tower appetizer were excellent. We shared an entree of a fish dish which was light and delicious. The portions for lunch are amazingly large. The brownie and ice cream dessert we also split and it, also, was amazingly large and delicious. The service was attentive but not intrusive. I highly recommend Char!

The steak was well-seasoned and not just a bland piece of beef.
We were just passing through Jackson, on the Natchez Trace Parkway, and stopped for the night and to go to the Mississippi Craft Center. Found Char on (I think) TripAdvisor and liked the menu--trying to avoid fast food and chain restaurants. We both had the chili-fried oysters, which were excellent! My husband also had the crabcake appetizer and liked it a lot--it really was all crab and no filler. I had a cup of the gumbo, which was tasty and had a reasonable amount of andouille, crawfish, and crabmeat in it (but I'm no connoisseur of gumbo, so can't be a real judge).
Middle of the day get away
Overall, the lunch time at Char was fabulous. I had a business meeting with one of our clients from overseas. And I have to say, that Char was the perfect location to meet. The food was good overall. The service staff was second to none.
I had the blackfish, which is a dish I keep coming back for - absolutely delicious. My husband had the ribeye, and he said it was better than the one he had at County Seat last month (that cost twice as much). Great service too.

Great fried catfish
Great lunch with friends. Enjoyed the fried catfish lunch special.
Our favorite restaurant!!!!!
Char is always outstanding!!! An all around wonderful dining experience!!! Top notch staff, superb food, great bar, and nice ambiance. I highly recommend. Wonderful fish and steaks!! Desserts are incredible!!!
Our waiter accidentally missed telling us about the nightly special. We did ask after we had orders and he was able to get the change made from our original order.
A treat for special occasions.
We went as a treat to celebrate my wife's birthday and were not disappointed. The filets we had were terrific and ranked with the best I've ever had. The waiter was professional and attentive yet not burdensome. The food and service were as good as our first visit when we went with friends from out of town several months ago. Those friends often mention how much they enjoyed their experience and definitely want to go again when they are in Jackson again.
Great celebration of my birthday. Our steaks were a little over-cooked (my husband's medium rare looked more well done!). They also stuck us in the very back of the restaurant by ourselves instead of with the crowd. That was a little odd. Still, the taste of the food was superb. A great time had by all.

Spectacular Tomato Tower Salad. Dressing was delicious.
My dining experience was lovely all because of the outstanding/superb service of Maquita Tate! She is THE BEST server, hands down! My daughter even made the comment that she is the happiest person she's ever seen!!!! The quality of the good was excellent and tasted delicious!!! The scenery was breath-takingly beautiful! Perfect!! Thanks, CHAR! You're one of my favorite restaurants!!!!

ambiance excellent, and food choices very good., The waitstaff is very good and knows the product for presentation. This was for combination valentines day and marriage date.
What a day to spend with a special person
I must say I really enjoyed the food it was a nice set up for me and my soul mate...We will be back to visit
Adrienne was awesome
The young lady Adrienne was a fantastic server. She was very understanding and made sure that not only my husband and I were taken care of but more inportantly our 2 lil boys. We def enjoyed our valentines meal.
Great vday brunch
Excellent brunch. We were in town for our friends' engagement party and made reservations for a Valentine's Day brunch before leaving town. We were seated promptly and they even accommodated our late addition of another couple when I called the day before. The menu had a nice variety and serving sizes were large. There was a nice ambience and a New Orleans style jazz group who moved throughout the restaurant to entertain. I sense that the dinner vibe would be considered more up-scale, but you could get away with dressing semi-casual for brunch/lunch. Prices were actually not nearly as high as I would have expected. Great experience and great food.
Great, consistent food and experience!
Great, consistent food and experience!
I have been several times for lunch. This was my first time bringing my 3 year old. He enjoyed the band the guy that took our order was so friendly.
Great Service but food was cold
Char is a very romantic place. It was very friendly and pretty much noise free. The service I received was outstanding. The only negative thing about my service is when it took too long to get my food. When I received my food, it was cold. Yet, I did not complain because I was amazed of the atmosphere. The food was great even though it was cold.

Brought my husband here for his birthday and we loved it! Deliciousness!!! We live two hours away and drove to Jackson to hang out! My husband liked it so much that he wants to drive back tomorrow lol! We will definitely be back soon!
Best Dining Experience Ever
I normally dont take the time for reviews but I couldnt pass this one up. I booked reservations for my wife & I on valentines weekend Saturday night. Booking was super easy on OpenTable and they even sent reminders and confirmation e-mails. Our dining experience was the best we have ever had in Jackson. The food was outstanding as everything was cooked to perfection. I could tell that the steak was fresh choice beef and honestly was the best I have ever had. We will definately make this our "go to" restaurant for special occasions from now on. Cant wait to take our out of town friends when they come to visit! Thanks Char!!!

Steak was delectable and so tender you could cut it by just lookin at it. Pecan pie was to die for.

The meals we got were the specials for the night and they were AWESOME! My regret is that they were not on the menu to order at any time.

Busy busy night at Char for Valentine's Day weekend. My date and I enjoyed a romantic dinner immensely! Even though it was bit noisy with so many people. Our service, cocktails and food didn't disappoint! Our server was warm and friendly and our entrees came out fast, hot and fresh. I want to note we ordered from their regular dinner menu (unlike a lot of restaurants these days who do a pre-fixed menu for Valentine's) My date ordered the filet and said it was so tender it melted in his mouth ! I ordered the Blackfish and it was divine! Char has really good hot coffee and delicious desserts too! I highly recommend Char! They never disappoint!
Best food in Jackson.
The only thing better than the food is the service. If you find yourself in Jackson, this is the only place to eat!
Char Jackson on a Saturday night.
Not what we had experienced in the past; hope you can learn from mistakes and provide better service.
Char was incredible. The most memorable part for me was my scallops and the dessert. I would say this restaurant was on the pricier side but worth the money!

Food was great but I would expect a little better service.
Great place for special occasions. Excellent food and service. Noise ambience was louder than expected but not overwhelming. Seemed a little too dim of lighting. Overall, very good place to dine. We will be returning back.
