This is my favorite restaurant when I come to Jackson on business. I have dine at lunch and dinner and every time I come I have a great experience. The quality of the food and service is absolutely the best. You will not be disappointed with the experience or the fine choices on the menu.

I keep coming back but they are consistently phenomenal, yep, that's the correct word - phenomenal! Every visit is great! Today's visit was for brunch for my daughter's birthday. I'm a "grazer" so I taste some of the food from everyone's plate and they were all great!! The creole is excellent - try it. Our server, Luke was perfect; very... More

The environment is outstanding as well as the food. The steaks are high quality and the fish is really great. Don't skip dessert or you will have missed one of the best parts. This is a must try!

I had the opportunity to eat with my parents on Easter Sunday at Char and we really enjoyed the jazz brunch. The jazz trio was enjoyable and the food was superb as usual. I had a cup of gumbo and the pecan crusted blackfish which was prepared to perfection and presented in an elegant manner. One of my parents had... More

I love Char. Been here many times. The Cowboy Steak is great as is the daily lunch specials. My only knock is that this place is REALLY loud inside and it can be hard to carry on a conversation. Char is one of the best restaurants in Jackson MS.

Char has gone thru it's ups and downs, including a horrible period where they gutted their menu. While all of the old favorites were not returned, many of the them were and the menu is a great combination of the old and new. The staff as always are impeccable. There are only a few restaurants in town where the staff... More

Ate there and was disappointed that the bone in fillet that was on the menu wasn't available that day. Was really pleased with the Ribeye steak. Done to perfection and the blueberry bread pudding was a perfect finish to the meal.
