- 1st and last timeDarylVIPDined on 10/16/2014A beautiful vista of the intracoastal. The decor is tired and dated. There was a loud private group in the middle of the restaurant. We had difficulty hearing each other as the night progressed. The service was probably the worst I have ever encountered. The food was however quite good and good value for the dine around menu. Regular menu is expensive and service doesn't equate. Never to be repeatedSpecial Features:
- CelebrateOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 10/11/2014A great place to celebrate special occasions....service was excellent and food was outstanding...Special Features:
- DisapointedsailfishDined on 10/10/2014Went for our anniversary. Nice atmosphere and good waiter. It was a no rush dining experience. My wife ordered a chicken dish which was OK. I ordered rare tuna steak which I had to send back. It was too thin and too overcooked. My replacement came right out which was a proper tuna steak cooked correctly. The wasabi mashed potato's were lumpy. Ordered some more Mojitos and were told they ran out of mint. This was early on a Friday night! I think for the price you pay you can do better elsewhere. We won't be going back.
- Had a great timeOpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 10/9/2014We had a great time, the service was excellent and the spinach salad was it off sight. My fish was mouth watering.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Beware of waitstaff!!!OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 10/9/2014Derrick our waiter kept telling us we couldn't order things when I have ordered it many times, for example I wanted a mango daiquiri and he said they don't have any. I said yes you do I have gotten it many times. I ordered something else and he said they didn't have and they indeed did!! What ever happened to accommodating the customer !!!!???? Waiters are total hits or misses. I adore Justin or William and want to stay for hours and enjoy myself and then there is Derrick or Will from NY who make the dining experience ever so unpleasant. I would highly recommend the place: food and ambiance is superb. But I would caution people of the waitstaff, shame on CH especially since their prices are higher than most places. One would expect more.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

She was actually one of the best waiters I have ever had. This was an excellent choice!Special Features:

- Intercoastal Fine Diningtc57Dined on 9/17/2014Chart House proved to be a great choice for enjoying a fine dining experience on the intercoastal in Ft. Lauderdale. Outdoor seating was wonderful in the great evening weather, wine list very good, food for every course spot on. I enjoyed the Hemingway Snapper for my main course and it was wonderful. You can find more elegance, but we had a great time. A perfect fit for casual business dining.Special Features:
- Excellent foodSunmomDined on 9/17/2014We took business associates from out of town to Chart House and we were very happy with our choice.

- Love the placeSueRVIPDined on 9/13/2014We were there both evenings this weekend and they do a wonderful job. Even with the heavy rain outside on Saturday, all worked well.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Service Too SlowmlletourDined on 9/12/2014Our food was great and when our waiter had time he treated us well but he must have had too many tables. He forgot to bring things he promised and the food was way too slow. We ordered drinks, oysters, salads, main course & dessert, coffee/after dinner drinks. All of it was great but there was way too much time between courses.Special Features:
- Sit OutsideMattsReviewsDined on 9/11/2014Overall... the quality of the food was outstanding. We had Artichoke crostini dip for an appetizer, a new dish there that was great. Can't remember what my wife had but she loved it. I had the Parmesan crusted Snapper with fresh crab meat and a delicious butter sauce. Wine selection was decent...the typicals with some harder to find selections. Service was good but not great. Major issue was inside. Very musty. Smelled like Grandma's house. Had there not been outside seating we may have left. Outside seating was very nice. Great view of the intercoastal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food not so good serviceNYFoodieDined on 9/10/2014The food at the Charthouse was great, but service was not so good. Would not recommend dining here unless it's for a casual lunchSpecial Features:
- Wonderful Ft. Lauderdale DiningLNLCDined on 9/8/2014We have dined at several Chart House locations and have never been disappointed ! We can now add the Ft. Lauderdale restaurant to the list. We were a small party for lunch celebrating a 90th birthday and were pleased that we chose the Chart House. The view is wonderful - food and wine very good as well as the service.Special Features:
- Seating issueMikeVIPDined on 9/7/2014Usually this is a great place to eat. I made a reservation for four people to celebrate my mom's 84th birthday with Sunday brunch. When we arrived it was too hot to sit on the patio and we were told that there was limited seating inside because of a large party. There were only a couple of people in the restaurant but they seated us at a back booth by the bathrooms. No big party showed up and when we left the dining room was virtually empty. The food and service was excellent as usual.Special Features:
- Great meal at SunsetSharptonAJ3Dined on 9/4/2014We had a great meal - great service and terrific food.

- Poor ServiceSizziDined on 8/30/2014Food was good, but related to the price, I definetely expect a better service. Restaurant should urgently use more staff, not only one lady for so msny tables. Got my sauce 10 minutes later then my dish, glass of wine was forgotten at all.Special Features:
- Relaxing and tasty!prinsessDined on 8/30/2014This Chart House has kept standards high and is the best one my husband and I have ever dined in. It reminds us of the Chart House in Puerto Rico before it went downhill. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding at this Ft Lauderdale location. We will definitely make this our special occasion destination. Wonderful dining experience!!Special Features:
- Wonderful! Will be going back soonmojolovingDined on 8/29/2014Went there on 8/29 for our Anniversary made a reservation and stated it was our anniversary. They sat us at a very nice table outside with great view. They had a special message printed up on our menu which was a very nice touch. They have a large wine list and menu. We both had the prime rib which was very good and came with mashed potatoes. We ordered the lava cake which was good but we really didn't need it because the manager sent over a ice cream dessert for us with a candle in it.Special Features:

- cfoodjkyDined on 8/2/2014We went with some very good friends and as usual we were not disappointed. Located on the inter-coastal waterway, we arrived just before sunset which by itself was spectacular. The low noise level was wonderful for good conversation while watching the sunset. We had the Chilean Sea Bass and Mahi Mahi, the fish we all had was perfectly cooked, moist and tender, one of the best seafood restaurants on my list.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Birthday DinnerSoFloFoodieDined on 7/29/2014My wife and I had an awseome dinner for my 55th! Our server was VERY cordial and our fish selections were awesome, best sauces I've ever tasted! (Sea Bass w/ apple cherry reduction and nut crusted Mahi Mahi w/ peanut sauce). Nothing like the classy decor, and fabulous food while dinning on S.Flo's Inter Coastal Waterway.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- You want the water and great food!Darnimpressed13Dined on 7/20/2014The restaurant is simply amazing, clean and bright. The bar, and bartenders, are great. They know their drinks, pour well and provide outstanding customer service. The general manager stopped by to see how our experience was. I was impressed that when he finished speaking with us he removed the dirty dishes himself. The food, as usual and always, is outstanding. Brunch is a treat and experience. If the weather is good, sit outside and breath in some fresh air. If not, sit outside anyway as the porch is covered. Treat yourself to the cucumber, fiery whatever goodness they call their specialty drink. Bring friends, bring strangers, meet new people and enjoy the GOOD LIFE at an amazing restaurant.Special Features:

I give this experience and 10+ and would definitely go back! Loved it!!!!Special Features:
