It’s time for another local restaurant giveaway! I am having so much fun with this series (I could talk about food for days) and I hope you are too! In case you missed the first two posts, you can get to them here and here!

Today’s topic is CHAR! A favorite amongst the locals, if you ask me! I can’t think of one person off the top of my head who hasn’t been able to find something at CHAR that they don’t like! I know I’m a sucker for one of their filets and an encore round of their award winning butter nut crunch cake! That stuff is TO DIE FOR. No kidding!

Which brings me to my next topic: CHAR’s catering! Did you know that they can basically do anything as far as catering? They’ve done everything in their 15 years of existence… Of course they do weddings and rehearsal dinners quite often, but they also do more unique events like private home parties, corporate catering, holiday celebrations… They even have staff who can walk around and serve your guests beef tartare from silver trays if that’s the sort of event you’re looking to have catered! (And no, beef tartare isn’t on their menu, but if you can dream it up, they can most likely figure out how to make it for you!)

CHAR actually recently helped cater a shower a group of girls and I hosted at my house that had sort of a Frenchy vibe. We had the idea to do a take on chicken and waffles by subbing the waffles out with French toast, and CHAR nailed it! Their fried chicken was incredible and the French toast was just so perfect! They let us pass it off as our own creation, too! 😉 They also did some cute individual crab and crawfish quiches, which were a hit with the seafood lovers!

    I love Char because of its approachable atmosphere. A person can visit Char for a blue plate special or a delicious steak and not feel out of place doing either. The quality and service of the restaurant have definitely improved over the last few years. I’m 8 mos pregnant and going tonight now that I’ve read your post……………at 8:55 in the morning! I want steak!

    What’s not to love? Friendly staff, delicious food, and fun atmosphere! It’s like the restaurant trifecta!

    I go to Char pretty much weekly! Their entire menu is amazing, but I particularly love their hummus, ahi tuna salad, and of course the butter crunch cake!

    I’ve just recently been to CHAR for my first time, and I’ve been back several times since. I love the variety of foods offered there. Whether you’re getting a blue plate special, sandwich or dessert, everything is first class, without the first class price tag (at lunch anyway). The service is impeccable, and everyone can find something to eat, which makes it a favorite among my co-workers. Plus, the brownie is a fabulous way to end a lunch there!

    Char after church is my favorite tradition!

    Char is one of me and my husband’s favorite Date night places. He loves the steak and I love anything else on the menu and any special they have. We love the warm cozy atmosphere and the service is always impeccable.

    Char is THE BOMB! One of the best steaks in town!

    I love Char!! BK (before kids), my hubs and I would do dessert dates with the butter nut crunch cake and wine. It was the most fun and hope to do it again soon. And the filet is divine!!
