Diner Reviews
  • "We have been coming to Hilton Head for over 20 years. Ironically, there are only a handfull of good restaurants with nice water views. The Chart House restaurant has beautiful views of Skull Creek, several boating docks and wild life. The food is very good and the service is also good. Plus, it is a nice treat to walk around the boat docks after a big meal. I will definitely be back on our next visit to Hilton Head."

  • "My husband and I visited Hilton Head the week of July 4th. It was incredibly busy on the island with families everywhere (which we knew would happen going into the trip). I made the reservation a few weeks in advance, knowing we would have to wait most other nights for dinner. We were hoping to have one night be more "adult-friendly." The Chart House was wonderful! It was the perfect date night - beautiful scenery, quiet, romantic, and great food! The experience was exactly what we had hoped it would be. We had the pick of our seating preference - inside or outside, and the view was spectacular over the marsh as the sun set. Our waitress was fantastic and recommended both our drinks and our meals. It was a great night!"

  • "I dine here every time I get to Hilton Head. My friend and I loved it so much this visit, we went three times. Kudos to the GM Bill Young for being so welcoming, and to chef Eric for his creativity and consistency. The food is elegant, fresh and beautifully presented. Try the fried catfish at lunch. The oysters were the best we could find on the island. The service staff was friendly and mostly efficient, and accommodated our dog with fresh water as we enjoyed the amazing views from the patio. I will dine here for as long as I get to vacation in Hilton Head, as we are always treated kindly and fed like royalty."

  • "Made reservation a month in advance to be on the patio for fireworks on July 4. Sat us at a table with a very, very large tree that totally blocked our view of fireworks. Literally did not see one firework. Seafood dish was good, filet poor. Would not recommend."

  • "Food was great. We were celebrating my daughters 16 birthday. Wanted to make it a special night. Called ahead & noted in reservation that our daughter is allergic to all nuts and to make sure the dessert they surprised her with was something she could eat. Even have a preprinted card we gave the waiter noting allergies. At end, they came to wish her happy birthday with a nut filled dessert. Thankful they didn't kill her on her 16th birthday. We told the waiter but didn't seem to care or realize what could have happened if she ate this. Wait staff seemed to be disorganized. Asked for drink refills many times and would refill some and not others. Had party of 11. Food came out they took 5 minutes to figure out who ordered what."

  • "The water view from the deck is delightful. But, when it's too hot to handle, bartender, Barb will take great care of you at the bar. Happy hour has discount drinks and apps. There is a three course early dining menu with delicious Chicken Romano and more. AND their dinner menu has all sorts of excellent fish dishes, local and not."

  • "Food was great, but they were understaffed. 15 minutes before we got water and a waiter. Server forgot drinks. Soufflé was made with waaaaay too much sugar it a was super sweet and grainy. That aside our appetizers and entrees were great. We have been here many time before and did not have any issues. I would stay to avoid the chart house during the high season!"

  • "I'm not sure what has happened at The Chart House. There is lots of help standing around looking at customers but no one seems to want to wait on them. When a wait person finally does show up the service is OK but it takes way too long for them to show up the first time. This has happened the last 2 times we have been there. We used to be regulars at this restaurant. We will be in no hurry to go back."

  • "We go here every year during vacation. All our entrees were very good. Our apps weren't that terrific though. The waiter, Alex, was awesome and very attentive. The dining area and view are marvelous. Note to Chart House; crab cakes could stand some improvement on quality of meat!"

  • "Great patio. Decent food. Wait staff and hostess a bit rude. Not th ebest restaurant on Hilton Head, but with not much great to compare to, Chart House is still one of the better ones."

  • "The view is great, the live music is very good, the food is good too. The only negative is that the serving was very slow. Don't know if it was the waiter or the kitchen. Maybe just the busy season."

  • " We have enjoyed the Chart House multiple times and once again they did not disappoint us. Don't go for fast food. The service might be considered slow by some, but simply enjoy the ambiance and the view. We arrived and were promptly seated by a window. The entrance is nice with the pond, the bar was vibrant and the view over the water is why we live on the island. We found one of our favorite wines at a reasonable price. The oysters were good. The waiter had a good suggestion and we split the crab legs. The chop salad was tasty with a broad selection of greens with a nice dressing. Afterwards we enjoyed the mud-pie desert which we highly recommend."

  • "This is the third time we have been to this restaurant hoping it would improve. Each time both the service and the food gets worse WE made the mistake of going for my birthday celebration. Do not waste your money Incredible slow service, waitress was inexperienced and slow, and the food was horrible Too many other great choices in Hilton Head"

  • "First time at a very upscale dinning establishment. Staff was great. Our waitress could tell I was out of my element but she went out of her way to make me feel comfortable and not so much like a country bumpkin. Food was mediocre not worth the price but the atmosphere was very nice. Good for a one time experience."

  • "Waterfront restaurant with scenic view facing West for the sunsets. This location once was a Charley's Crab and is now a Chart House. The waiter service was either badly understaffed or poorly utilized, not once did my waiter refill our water glasses much less ask if we wanted another glass of wine or tea. When I dropped my fork accidentally I saw a large dead roach near our table that I asked the waiter to remove when he returned to take our order. My wife finally informed the manager of the unsatisfactory service after being utterly ignored after our entrees arrived. Very sad, this was once a very desirable place, it used to be one of the best on Hilton Head Island but nowadays it just not worth ones time nor money. Very disappointed"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We loved the ambiance and the food, but the service was horrible. We sat with our bread plates, appetizer plates and dinner plates until 30 mins after we had finished our dinner. We had to consistently ask for drink refills and many other things. We are not picky or needy, and have never complained at a restaurant, but this was just ridiculous. When we finally saw a manager to clear our table and get our check, we tried to explain before he quickly walked away without apologizing, and then only grabbed one plate. We did not receive an apology or even a dessert as compensation. We will not be coming back."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Unable to decide on just 1 appetizer, we chose to have nothing but. We loved everything except the chop salad. Not that it was bad, it just wasn't great. The coconut shrimp & crab cakes were in my opinion the best. I try to visit evert Chart House while on vacation because the food is always excellent & they tend to have primo locations. This was not any different. I would most certainly return and recommend to anyone."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We made a last minute reservation after realizing we had planned to go to the wrong restaurant. Sat outside and had a great dinner. Service was good. Second time we have been here and we will return. Excellent choice for a quiet adult evening out."

  • "The service and food quality seems to be heading on a downward spiral. We had reservations. Upon arrival we were told we would be seated in 15 minutes. An hour later the hostess said she sent me a text message saying my table was ready. I turn my phone off in a restaurant;her reply was I can't remember everyone! There were 20 or so people dining and 6 at the bar! We love Morton's and are Landrys members but I am not sure I will frequent Chart House again. I asked about a selection and was misinformed so received a totally fried meal. The waitress failed to bring us bread until after we asked and after our meal was served. We ordered carry out for our son and he remarked that it was the worst steak he has ever eaten---yep for$33!"

  • "Request on reservation through open table for outside or in front if big window was completely ignored. When shown to table in back corner we requested a move which was quickly done. Beautiful window view. Tap water had particles in it and had to be replaced with bottled water. Appetizer was excellent. Entrees were also excellent but overpriced compared to restaurants of similar high end. Service by Katherine was excellent and very accommodating."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Our beloved Chart House ( formerly Charley's Crab) has sadly taken a definite downward turn towards the "just barely adequate" on both their service and food. Took the men there today for Father's Day lunch and it took them 10-15 minutes to seat us for our 12:30 reservation. Then another 10- 15 minutes for our server to come by the table and take a drink order. Well another 10-15 minutes goes by until we see our one bloody mary and one iced tea and the saga goes on. When our food finally arrived it was bland and had no taste. It is one of the few scenic water view restaurants we have here on HHI and it's just a crying shame !"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Why one would bother to eat at this restaurant, with it's below average (but overpriced) food and unremarkable service is beyond me. It's wonder this place had last minute availability when the restaurants on either side of it were packed."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We were pleasantly surprised with the Chart House's food, scenic view and service for a restaurant chain. The restaurant experience was more like a privately held business. Our waiter took very good care of us and suggested the Q'ued Ahi Tuna. It was delicious and a very good choice. The crab cake entree was also very good and a generous portion. Although our table was located inside, we had a beautiful water view and watched the sunset. The table next to us was too close and a bit loud."

  • "It was our last night on HHI and we were a bit disappointed that we had to sit inside (I didn't specify outdoors so it was partially my fault) but our table was close to the big windows so it wasn't too bad. The food was good, but not great. My filet was a bit fatty but otherwise tasty. The caesar salad was very good and I'm told the lobster rolls were also very good. Some others in the group had the grouper and said it was wonderful. The scallops were again, "good". The service was a bit slow - it took a long time to get our drinks & bread - but our waiter was very pleasant and our meals were brought out quickly. It was a nice place, probably would have enjoyed the outdoor seating more, but it was definitely worth a trip."

  • "We dined here at the last minute and it was WONDERFUL.....the view was great and the food REALLY good. The "special" was the Pecan Crusted Trout and it was yummy. We did have a little problem as it got kind of cool outside and the fan was blowing right above us and they could not turn our fan off without turning off all the others, so we were a little chilly. Nice music outside....."

  • "My husband and I visit Hilton head at least 3 times a year and always make reservations before leaving Atlanta. I never go to Hilton Head without having dinner at Chart House. The food is amazing always and a beautiful wine list is also available. It has become our favorite restaurant on the Island."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Been here often. The Food is very average but the view at sunset is amazing, regrettably sort of ruined by all the tourists jumping up to have their pictures taken. The music outside would be nice if the singer sang a bit softer. He is an accomplished guitarist but his voice is too loud, as is the case with all the entertainment on the island, so he is not alone. I'm not sure if it's because tourists are deaf or because the entertainers feel they are being ignored. Don't order the Grand Marnier Soufflé, it's actually a meringue not a soufflé. Other than that, they try hard and you won't be disappointed by the location."
