    I found the entire experience to be exceptional! Every detail was considered. My wife felt a little self conscious when the hostess looked at her slacks when we entered. Later we realized - it was to decide about the color of the appropriate colored napkin - she got a black on since a white one might have left white lint. The entire staff was friendly and responsive. The food - portions, flavor, presentation - all enjoyable. Even our menu was printed especially for us - commemorating our anniversary! Thanks!

The restaurant seated us within 5 minutes of our reservation time and really made us feel important and that they were glad we chose them to dine there.

    Excellent service by the staff. Easily accomodated our group with food recommendations and wine requests. Our online reservation was ready immediately upon arrival and our table location and set up was perfect. The timing of the service for appetizers salads and entrees was perfect. All meals were cooked to perfection with special requests and server attention to detail was excellent and non-intrusive for a group who had a lot of discussions over dinner.

  • AVOID the Chart House in Daytona
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 1/11/2009
    AVOID the Chart House in Daytona Beach Florida: The service was terrible, the prices were high for the small portions and lower quality prep and presentation. The menu was confusing and the server misinformed when clarification was requested. If you are not wearing a suit, be prepared to be treated like you are invisible. I waited three minutes to be approached at the salad bar when it was obvious that I was waiting to be served a Caesar's salad. What I received was limp and brown. Went to celebrate a birthday, which was noted to the restaurant host, and nothing was done to make the evening special. I flew in from Chicago to take my dad to a special place on his special day in Daytona Beach Florida. What a TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT!!!

    This restaurant has become much better over the last six months. For about a year before that the food was regularly so-so for a Chart House. Our food was superbly prepared and was of outstanding quality. One thing that has happened in all the Chart Houses I've been in over the past year or so is the "coaching" of wait staff with catch phrases and "over-service." Such highbrow language just seems out-of character for a chain restaurant of any type. Just a bit over the top and comes off silly.

Adjacent tables did get fresh pepper.Our server seemed like she didn't want to be there.We had to constantly ask for things that should have been brought, like cream for coffee, additional butter etc. It was New Years Eve. They were playing loud music through the restaurant. That was our third and last time there.

    As usual, a pleasant dining experience. No problems, although we did have to wait 20 minutes or so to be seated -- notwithstanding our 6 p.m. reservation. However, it was a holiday and diners previously seated may have lingered overlong. That won't keep us from returning.

    We went to the Chart House for Christmas dinner and the place was packed. We didn't get a seat with a view but didn't really expect that we could on such a busy night. My elderly mother couldn't find a meat dish that she liked, but she loved the creamed spinach. No Turkey or ham for Christmas dinner. My husband ordered the salad bar which was up the stairs from where we were seated. I love sea food so I was happy. My favorites were the sizzling mushrooms, the crab cakes and the broccoli and red peppers. I would gladly return for those dishes. The side dishes and desserts are large enough to share with everyone at the table (we were 5).I was also pleased that there were good choices for wine by the glass. (my Reisling was $7.50 per glass)

    My husband, daughter and I had Christmas dinner at the Chart House Restaurant. It was a wonderful experience. I had been to the one in Alexandria, Virginia, but my daughter and husband had not been to one before. The wine, salad bar and our entrees were all spectacular. We shared a piece of key lime pie at the end of our meal and enjoyed that as well. Our waiter, Jason, was excellent and made our holiday celebration very special.

    I would highly recommend the Chart House to others if you are looking for a place that has excellent service, great ambiance and most important, outstanding food. The seared ahi tuna appetizer was amazing and the filet mignon you could practically cut with a butter knife and it just melted in your mouth. The dessert was fabulous, the lava cake was so delicious and decadent(I definitely recommend it). The staff really goes out of their way to make sure you have a pleasant dining experience. We will definitely come back. The Marlow's Orlando, FL

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/30/2008
    In Daytona, Florida, as elsewhere, the Chart House specializes in seafood, much of it very good although also quite expensive. The overpriced salad bar is simply passe and unfortunate. Appetizers are often excellent though steeply priced for the portions on offer. Fish of the day is a good bet. In Daytona the Chart House is on the Intracostal, and its semicircular layout has decent views. But even some windowside tables are problematic, looking over the water only obliquely or, worse, at the parking lot. Chart House will not take advance reservations for good tables; tipping the host/hostess may work. Finally, the service in our experience has been glassy and robotic. You come away feeling efficiently processed but hardly coddled.

    My wife orchestrated a weekend away for my birthday with good friends. We dined on a Saturday evening at the Chart House. We made reservations ahead of time with OpenTable. When we arrived, the place was busy, but we were seated promptly, the food and service were great. I have had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant several times of the last 7 years, sometime just as a family, and sometimes with groups of 15-20 from work - it is ALWAYS a great experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 10/18/2008
    We were extremely disappointed with our dinner experience. It took a full hour for our appetizers to arrive - the seared tuna portion seemed smaller than it should have been (just four slender slices), the stone crab claws were not well cracked with no chance of getting to most of the crab, the lobster bisque was just warm and the crab stack had fallen. We noticed the dinner portions were smaller than what we recall, but it may have been the plates which looked different - very basic. The presentation was very sloppy. I am not sure if there was a change in chef, but I would not recommend the Daytona Beach Chart House at this time.
