Very formal setting but formal dress is not required. Beautiful decor with wonderful food. Prices for the meals you get are very good. Free parking. Reservations suggested on holidays and weekends

Very small area and the tables were really close together. Very impressive menu but the prices were very high. Excellent service but I was not able to eat my meal as it was not very tasty. Definitely not a place I would visit again. Nice view overlooking a small pond.

The best steaks in town. Always made the same and they never disappoint! Hard working staff. Large windows overlook a pond and relaxing landscape.

My husband took me out for our anniversary. It was amazing. I had a good steak. It is expensive but worth it.

This is by far the best dinner I have had in Beckley. Its nestled back off the beaten path and on a small lake. Will return on my next visit👌

This restaurant is highly rated and I was looking forward to something really special. There was no wait on a Wednesday night. The setting is quite beautiful, by a small stream and parking was available on site. Crackers were served instead of fresh baked bread or biscuits. Wines were reasonably priced. There was nothing exciting or unusual on the menu.... More

The Char was packed when we go there so there was a little bit of a wait, but it still took three hours from start to finish. If you are in a hurry a busy weekend night is probably not the right place to be. It was well worth the time! The food was very good. We were hungry so... More

We went on the recommendation of the staff @ the (close by) Holiday Inn. I wouldn't say we were disappointed, but we weren't "overwhelmed." I'd describe the setting as above average, the service attentive and the food just ok. The evenings highlight were fried frog legs. Tasty and perfectly battered. On the other hand the ribeye was very thin, fatty... More

We had waited a few years to experience this resturant so when we found ourselves passing the area we stopped. It was quaint, a beautiful setting and we had an engaging waitress. The food? Although "fresh" the sautéed mushrooms and black beans seemed to have been a day old. I'm sure it wasn't. The filet was average. Lamb was tasty,... More

On our travels home we decided to have a steak dinner on our last night and ended up at Char. We only waited about 15 min for a table and once seated we enjoyed friendly service and good food. The only complaint I had was the salad seemed wet - and this may be caused by the diced tomato's on... More
