The Char has been a staple of Beckley’s dining scene for the past 45 years, ever since Ann Lorenz and her son Billy Browskey built it up before it moved to its current location on Char Drive. The Char’s menu focuses mostly on classic steak and seafood dishes and other American favorites, including appetizers like shrimp cocktail and fried oysters and entrees like filet mignon and crab cakes, which are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters in your party. Be sure to get a table with a view of the pond in spring or summertime, which makes for a particularly special experience.
