Food was good. Should have gotten the steak instead. I got redfish and Sarah got the tuna. Sarah ordered hers medium rare and it was cold on the inside. My reddish was good. Cesar salads were great. My tea glass never got half empty before it was refilled.

They have obviously changed Chef's. The food is definitely not what it use to be. Atmosphere alluring as always and superb service however the Butter Crunch desert is the best thing going.

I have been to Char numerous times over the past few months. The quality of food and offerings have been expertly prepared. It is difficult to achieve such consistency but Char has never disappointed. Steak, delicious... pork chop, delicious... Redfish, delicious. I will continue to frequent.

There we're 5 of there for dinner and it was great. I had the fish and my husband had the steak. Steak was so tender you could cut it with a fork. We also had 3 appetizers and wow they were also amazing. Great place for family, couples etc. Would go back in a heart beat.

This place is located right off the I 55 in Jackson, MS. Not in any elite segment of the city but the food is excellent. Please come early because the place is super busy and it's always worth the wait. They do have valet parking because it's so busy and parking is limited. I had lunch and dinner, business and...

I've been several times, usually for special occasions. We get their catering regularly. I am never disappointed. You've got to try the caramel crunch for dessert.

We wentalked for Saturday birthday lunch, and the place had a sour bar rug smell. I asked the hostess what the smell was, and she literally acted if it didn't exist. She turned and walked off and was caught snickering byou son, who is always late. If going on a date and you expect rain or something, go check it... More
