Service was slow. A lot of patrons didn’t mask properly, especially at the bar.

Food was outstanding from appetizer to dessert. If there is a steakhouse, Ive been there. And this one ranks up there with the best of them. Owner was very involved and stopped by table more than once to make sure everything was perfect. Even bought us an after dinner drink. Overall fantastic. Will be going often.

We are somewhat frequent diners at Char and were somewhat disappointed with this most recent visit (Wednesday 9/16). We ate outside on the patio which was fine but service was terrible. It took a while for the server to get to us and when we were finally able to order drinks (Pear Martini), we were told they were out of Pear Vodka, mind you this is on their drink menu. The noise level was pretty loud, there was a table of 3, mid 20's guys that were seated behind us who should have been at the bar and were quite loud for a dining atmosphere. For some reason the owner/manager was VERY attentive to them as well as the wait staff who seemed to be flirting with them. One of the guys kept spitting into the bushes after he vaped. Pretty much ruined the dining experience. The food was good though for the most part.

Of note...if you want to go someplace where you don't have to worry about Covid-19 compliance, you may want to think about coming here. The bus boy kept wearing his mask under his nose and sometimes under his chin. The "owner/manager" DID NOT ENFORCE patrons wearing masks when not sitting. Many of the customers walked in not wearing masks or improperly wearing masks. No one seemed to care. Some of the outside tables were not 6 feet apart. I am still debating if I should call the Dept of Health to report them. We live in a different world now and rules need to be followed.

Char Steak House is a great establishment to hold a small party at. The wait staff is tentative and the specials are great. We do all of our birthday parties at Char. The food is good for the value.

Except for the fact that they did not have 2 entrees and did not mention it until I ordered the first and was told they have not had it for awhile, and then after being given more time to decide I happened to pick the only other entree they did not have it was really good.

Steak was flavorless - not what you expect from a $100 steak - i make better mashed potatoes at home- they just need to add some butter and salt! Shrimp Scampi - overcooked - just all around not worth the price tag.

Appetizers were good but didn't make up for it.

The service was great, the food was great and they had a nice outdoor area as we were not comfortable sitting inside. The only thing I would’ve changed is maybe not to have the outside area confined and a little more space between the tables. But the overall experience was excellent! I highly recommend
