```Here's my suggestion:

f[lst_, char_]:= Module[{sp, sel},
sp= Split[lst, ( #1 =!= char && #2 =!= char )& ];
sel= Select[sp, ( #1 =!= {char} )& ];
If[MemberQ[sp, {char}], sel, First[sel]]
]

lst = {{3, 1, 4, "x", 1, 5, 9, 2, "x"}, {6, 5, "x", 3, 5, "x", 8, 9, "x"}};
Map[f[#1, "x"] & , lst, {0, -2}]
:= {{{3,1,4},{1,5,9,2}},{{6,5},{3,5},{8,9}}}

The code can also handle lists of varying depth eg:

lst = {1, "x", {3, 1, 4, "x", 1, 5, 9, 2, "x"}, {6, 5, "x", 3, {1, 2, "x",
4}, 5, "x", 8, 9, "x"}};
Map[f[#1, "x"] & , lst, {0, -2}]
:= {{1},{{{3,1,4},{1,5,9,2}},{{6,5},{3,{{1,2},{4}},5},{8,9}}}}

Not sure whether that's useful or not, but still
