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.

This is an old style steak house, reminding you of a 70- 80's restaurant. Restaurant is fairly close to several hotels which is good for travelers. If y0u are in a mood for a good steak check this place out.

Unfortunately, you see everything. I like to dress up just a bit when going to the Char. Dressy casual would be fine. It is a nice but relaxed atmosphere. Nice jeans with a dressy top and heels or a casual dress for the... More

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.
