Loved this place. Food and service were excellent. Not as expensive as it looks. The salmon was perfectly cooked. Good wine list. We really enjoyed ourselves

I suppose there is always an element of a self-fulfilling prophecy in terms of good restaurants getting good reviews and being ranked well. I certainly went to this restaurant based on prior reviews and was not disappointed in the least. I started off with the...More

My wife and I really enjoyed our dining experience at this quiet almost-elegant restaurant - with tables spaced far apart and soft music in the background. Maybe our expectations were low in the small town of Beckley, WV, but the food was very good, the...More

Hidden behind Tamarack, this is a hidden gem in West Virginia. Four of us decided to stop for dinner, and found it overall a great experience! Try their Steaks, Italian, Seafood, Lamb, or just about anything is on their menu. I highly recommend the "house"...More

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.
