Char - Jackson Ratings and Reviews

I would recommend Char with no reservations. The surroundings were excellent and the staff worked together as a group with no problems. Love the Hotess she was a part of the team not a stand alone staff. The food was good and fresh. Love the bread pudding.

I enjoyed my lunch at Char as always. The food is always hot and specially prepared. The hostesses are very friendly and I think my waiter remembered me from last time. He (Ryan) is the best waiter ever, I'm always glad to be seated in his section. He is so knowledgeable about the menu and makes excellent recommendations. He's very personable and makes you feel at home when you visit Char.

We were seated on time. Our server came immediately to our table to take our drink order. Our appetizer was late getting to us. It went to another table so they had to reorder ours. However the server was very apologetic and made sure our order came quickly. The entree was exceptional. The steaks were cooked exactly how we ordered them. Definitely recommend Char!

We always have a great time at Char. They have been the site of most of our big celebrations. Father's Day is one of the BIGGEST DAYS we celebrate. The food is always delicious and the kitchen is more than willing to meet dietary requests. Char will be seeing us for years to come as our latest Father's Day included the announcement of our FIRST grandchild!!! Thanks for celebrating with us, Char.

This was an outstanding restaurant. The ambiance, the soft music, the delicuous delicacies and diverse deserts were debonair. I highly recommend this to individuals looking for first class dining with coach prices.

Service was excellent. We went late on Sunday for brunch ( 1:30) so the noise and much of the crowd had dissipated. I had crab cakes Benedict which measure up to or surpass any I have had. They are served with shoe string French fries. My husbands's meal was equally delicious. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable despite the crowd. We eat here often and will continue to do so. Price commensurate with food and service and ambience

What stood out to me the most was the service from our waiter. Our server was named Chad and he did an awesome job. He was timely with drink refills, and I even had a to-go order and he was timely with it. He had a very nice and friendly attitude. I felt like he wanted to do a great job serving us.
Exquisite lunchtime dining
The Char burger was absolutely fabulous. My associate had the pecan crusted fish with garlic mashed potatoes which was equally fantastic. The ambiance is perfect for a date night, a ladies' luncheon or a business meeting. The server was discreet, knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing.

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. :-)
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!
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.
