    Having eaten at this restaurant earlier in the week when everything was perfect, it had a lot to live up to and it just fell short of the same mark on this occasion but was still extremely good. Probably because it was a Friday night we waited a long time (20 mins) to get the drinks and apetizer which was barely like warm and was served at the same time as the bread which other tables got within seconds of sitting at their table. The entree itself was not very warm either, the steak was a bit tougher than the one earlier in the week. The server and staff were friendly but obviously under pressure until about 8:30 when it quieted down. That is something as Europeans we cannot get used to in the states, the night dies off far too early

    Having eaten at Chart Houses through the USA for the last 40 years whenever we visit from England we always look for one and we were not disappointed. We ate outside which for us in October was a treat as back home we could not possibly think of doing that. Our server,, Barbara was excellent, she didn't rush us and she recommend one or two things which we went with and were excellent. Back home we spend anything from 2 - 4 hrs in a restaurant as most English and Europeans do as opposed to the USA where the second you finish eating you get the bill and the whole eating process is rushed. The Chart house is always somewhere for us that gives us the opportunity to linger and enjoy the whole evening.

    Arrived just before 7 pm reservation. Seated immediately. Downhill from there. Server showed up took order fro Sparkling water, Bottle of wine and dinner by 7:05. Sparkling water and wine didn't arrive for 30 minutes. salad/appetizer not for 60 minutes. Entree 95 minutes later. Had to ask for bread after sale was served - another 10 minutes. 3 tables for one server all experienced similar problems. other tables in area were served properly. Server whined about being new and the kitchen and trying "to do everything in order". Have eaten here a dozen times before and never had this experience. Manager was wandering around and never seems to notice or care. Didn't greet a single table in our area.

    Had dinner from the sunset mrnue that is served until 5:30. This may be too early for some, but the value is excellent. An excellent 3course meal with a glass of wine for less than $25. Would definitely recommend eating on the patio as the view was nice. The food was very good and our server, Frank was excellent.

    The food was amazing and it was beautiful out ! The only complaint my husband and I had was the service . We have been one other time and the service and food was great but this Saturday night was a totally different story. The server took her time to do everything. She forgot my drink about 4 times and when we got the check it took her 15 minutes to come back, after she came back she said our gift card didn't work so after that we walked back inside and it took her another 15 minutes to try again. So it took as long to pay the check as it did to eat our food. We will more than likely come. Back because of food but we hope the service is better.

    Went to the Chart House for our anniversary. This was our second time to the restaurant. The first time, two years ago, was very nice. This time not so much. The main complaint was that the overall service level seemed to be really off. Our waiter, Frank, was good, polite, and did a nice job. However, the others in the restaurant were rather slack. The table next to us, where eight people had eaten dinner, sat untouched nearly the entire time we were eating. In other words, we got to look over their dirty dishes and unfinished meals the whole evening. When the bus person finally showed up to clean the table, she took about 10 minutes to clear it, banging glasses and silverware, basically taking her sweet time.

    We took a group of 11. Our table was ready on time and our waiter efficient and courteous. Our entire group each had something different and they all raved about their food. To have 11 people and 8 who had never dined there before all happy says a lot. We all enjoyed the view, drinks, food and company. A memorable evening.

    Since moving to SC 6+ years ago my wife have become regular visitor to HHI. Great beaches and great dining. Dice being introduced to the Chart House by a Marriott consier we usually make this a last night stop. The chief works magic with local seafood! However this time the meal was totally spoiled by poor service. Service was slow. The soup was like warm! Had it not been for seeing the tables around us receive good service I might have suspected the kitchen. Oh well!

    Unexpected poor service...no napkins,silverware or attention to details. Despite Making server aware of GF issues salad came with croutons...no lemons for shrimp cocktail and repeated mix up of sweet and unsweetened ice teas. Server was more preoccupied with Happy Hour setup than customer...restaurant was NOT busy. Had to get manager to correct credit to Landry card even though server was given ID number. Food was exceptional salty. Ambience is always great...as is the food usually.

    The food was good - but not great, considering the prices. I expected a little better from price alone. However, it was still good. The wine list was just ok. The filet mignon was a little over done & not sure it was truly the 8 oz it was supposed to be. On the other hand, the others in the group thought their seafood was very good - cooked well and well seasoned. Service was just ok (we had to get up to get the decanter and pour the first glasses of wine ourselves) and that should not have been since the place wasn't exactly bursting with people. Was also a little disappointed in that in the reservation we noted it was a 40th b-day celebration and no acknowledgement of that whatsoever.

    We have dined at the Chart House many times on Hilton Head including the old location probably 20 years ago. The food was just okay and the service seemed a little off. A lot of the options were fried (especially the kid's menu) which wasn't impressive since this is a nicer restaurant. The Early Dining Menu is nice however the selections used to include more grill items and less pan-fried/fried items. Not sure if this will be on our list next year to dine.

    Our food was good. The clam chouder was delicious- rich & creamy. The service was subpar - our water glasses were not refilled until we asked and our soup bowls were not removed until the main course was served & it took awhile to get our food, dessert, etc. We usually have good service & the food is wonderful so we will return & recommend to friends.

    Friendly staff. Had drinks at bar before dinner. Sandy was attentive and prompt. The bathroom was not very clean and was not attended to after I asked the manager to check it out. He seemed to not care. Steak was cooked to temperature. Alaskan king crabs were not "steamed to perfection". They were just warm. By the time we were asked how is your dinner it was too late to complain. The manager never came by to ask about our dinner and they were not very budy

    Chart House Hilton Head is consistently fine. This was a lunch visit and the restaurant was serene with service inside and out. The creek view provides a nice background to a well- presented lovely meal. Seafood is the specialty and is fresh and tasty. Don't miss the shrimp and fritters and the lava cake!

    My friend and I were going to the neighboring joint, Hudson's, but the wait was over 2 hours so we decided to hit the Chart House. We ate at the bar and while the service was fine, the food was really bad. We both had the Snapper Hemingway at the bartender's suggestion and it was gross. The breading was too thick and the fish was very dry. It tasted like it was made somewhere else, frozen, and then fried up. I'll never go back because if there is one thing I hate it is a seafood place on an island or at the beach that screws up seafood.

    We recently dined at Chart House. Nice view. The food was ok. I should add the chowder was one of the best I have had. But the service was very poor. A not inexpensive restaurant so I expect a professional waiter or waitress. However, instead we had a young kid who was clueless on waiting and what the restaurant had to offer.

    We usually visit The Chart House several times each summer while we're at Hilton Head. The food is always good. Service usually is as well, but not so much this year. Long waits between courses. Had to ask for bread, which in years past was never the case. Biggest complaint - even though we always make reservations beforehand, we never get a table anywhere near the ones with prime views. In fact, this year we were tucked up in a back corner with a very large family gathering whose many kids were completely out of control. Loud and unruly, running around and disruptive to pretty much everyone else in the area. Not so much a fan this year. Doubt that we'll make a return visit . . . .

    We took our 2 kids - 10 and 8 to dinner at Chart House during our vacation and it was amazing. The food was delicious and even though the atmosphere was a bit "fancy" the restaurant was very kid friendly. I recommend for great seafood for a special occasion. The prices were a little on the high end ($8 for a bowl of soup- no option for a smaller, cup size) but it was totally worth it. We will go back next year!

    We celebrated ouranniversary at Charthouse. I had a chopped salad which was very fresh and my husband had the trio of soups. He liked the NE clam chowder the best. I enjoyed the blackened salmon with fingering potatoes. He had shrimp over linguine which he LOVED. We splurged and split the peach raspberry cobbler with. Ice cream which was very good.
