Chart House Restaurant - Lake Tahoe
Awesome views, service, and food!The Chart House is one of those chains that always serves up an awesome experience - I have frequented many in California and Hawaii since 1977 and have never been disappointed. We drove 2 hours to dine at this Chart House overlooking Lake Tahoe on the Nevada side - the views are spectacular! From the moment we walked in the door we felt like we were the only ones in the restaurant - the service was that special. At one point the Manager came around to introduce himself and ask how everything was - very cool. As far as the food, I suggest anything on the menu - it's all good. Try the creamed spinach - it serves two - unbelievable!
We're coming back soon with our friends so they can have the same experience as we did. Thanks CH!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Crab/Avocado Stack AppetizerFirst time at Chart House, first time in Lake Tahoe. Landry Group restaurant. Building is a bit tired, but the view of Lake Tahoe is terrific. Matt was our waiter and he was the highlight. Was very accommodating, extremely knowledgable and helpful with the menu. Terrific personality and was very "present" with each group he served. Timing of courses was good. Best thing we ordered was the Crab/Avocado Stack Appetizer, that Matt recommended. Delicious and beautiful presentation.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery very solid.The service we had was outstanding. The Duck pot stickers started the meal with a bar so high it was hard to hit. My prime rib and potato were very good, but not the best I have ever ate. My wife LOVED the crab cake and seafood grill. I would recommend it especially for people who want a good meal with a scenic view of Lake Tahoe.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for special occasionWe were vacationing in Tahoe, and celebrating a special birthday. The ambiance was exactly what we hoped for, and the service was very personal. We were greeted with a customized menu for the occasion and a spectacular view. The food was amazing and the waiter was very helpful in making recommendations for wine and other food specials.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMServer (Scott) was very efficientServer (Scott) was very efficient and professional.

The service is ALWAYS outstanding, never had bad service there even once. It makes a great place to have a leisurely dinner :) I keep going back again and again, and I am picky :)6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable dining with the best viewWe travel (2 hours) to the Chart House a couple of times a year for special dinners. The view is incredible and the food is consistently good. We can never pass on the clam chowder. There's no better. The menu is extensive and there's always a favorite on the menu for everyone. We were a bit frustrated on our recent visit, as the waiter took our left over steak and didn't return it, even though we asked to have it wrapped to take home and he confirmed our request. When confronted, he acted surprised. We understand that mistakes happen, but we were disappointed that that he denied knowledge of the request. This was our first negative experience in many years, so we won't let this deter future visits.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPresentation was great! ServicePresentation was great! Service was great except I can no longer have alcohol or wine (due to a heart condition) and the waiter pushed a little to hard to get me to order a drink. I finally had to just tell him, it does not mix with my heart meds.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingCan't say enough about my first time at the Chart House. Food was incredible, service excellent and I especially appreciated the customized menu acknowledging our first wedding anniversary...we'll keep that forever and return again for sure.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMall around wonderful!Took my mom here for dinner for her birthday! It was perfect for the occasion. We had an amazing view thru dinner of the lake and sunset! Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, and the manager even made rounds to every table to make sure all was well! Which, it was! Their food is delicious and filling! They were also very welcoming to my well behaved 8 month old being there. Overall I'd definitely go again5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Service wasFood was great. Service was great. Beautiful view from the restaurant!!!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic Sunset DinnerThe Chart House provided a beautiful location to celebrate my husbands birthday. Since we are not beef eaters we enjoyed the seafood. My salmon was good but not memorable, my husband ordered a seafood platter with 3 choices which he thoroughly enjoyed. We split a Caesar salad which was well made and the lava cake for dessert (we also split) was excellent and beautifully presented. Our waiter was professional and friendly! The view=incredible. Need to update decor.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday EventMathilda, our server was outstanding! We had a great dinner, fabulous food and wine. They gave us a view table with a sunset that was lovely. We would highly recommend the Chart House in Lake Tahoe.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal at the Chart HouseMy husband and I had an early dinner (5:00 p.m.) reservation at the Chart House Restaurant. We asked for a table with a view and they accommodated us very nicely. We enjoyed our meal there-my seared scallops entrée was very good and my husband enjoyed his prime rib dinner-the meat was so tender! Our waiter asked if we wanted to order the chocolate lava cake and we did-it takes thirty minutes to bake. It was very good too.
During the meal the manager came by each table to ask how our meal was going. That was nice-customer service is a must nowadays.
Recommend going early for dinner there and maybe go on a Sunday night; less of a crowd and you probably can get a nice table with the view of Lake Tahoe.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid choice for a romantic dinnerGood food, great choices, Duck Won Tons were amazing.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the relaxed of this place.Excellent service. I would recommend the Seafood grill also the Scallops. We also had the Hot chocolate Lava cake it was excellent. Can't wait to go back.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view, food and serviceNot really much else to say other than it was a nice evening out for my wifes birthday. Be sure to call ahead with your special occasion and they will print that on the top of the menu (e.b., Happy Birthday [date] or Happy Anniversary [date]...the couple next to us was celebrating their anni) Food for thought for those that use Open Table, drop that in the notes section of your reservation.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a Birthday celebrationWe had a Birthday celebration topped with a special menu with a birthday wish. Food was wonderful as well as the service. Beautiful view and a wonderful way to spend a special evening.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great place for a wonderfulWhat a great place for a wonderful dinner at Lake Tahoe!

When my wife and I visit Lake Tahoe the chart house is always in our plans.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI had prime rib which wasI had prime rib which was excellent, but my dinner partner's prime rib was full gristle. Aside from that everything was very good. The crab stuffed mushrooms were excellent. I eaten here before, and this is the first time anybody in the party had an issue with the food.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur all time favoriteOur second visit to Chart House was 9 years after the first, and lived up to the high expectations that developed after all that waiting. It was just as beautiful, the food was amazing, the waiter was helpful and definitely a professional. It is one of the only places we highly recommend to others. To us, the food stands on it's own, but to go to the Chart House is to enjoy a great wine list, amazing staff, and a one of a kind view as well. The main dish is cooked perfectly, but the side dishes are more than just plate filler. We both cleaned our plate and ordered dessert (don't ever stop serving the lava cake!), which almost never happens. We do want to return soon to let our kids experience the amazing seafood.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food, and excellentAlways great food, and excellent service. Never disapointed.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStill got it!Top notch all the way!

They printed a special menu for us for our anniversary which made us feel like valued customers.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, great views, poor choice in music. It was not conducive to romantic dining environment. The din of the early dinner crowd drowned out the strange techno pop music. But as the crowd thinned it became more and more pronounced. Bad choice! All in all a very enjoyable dining experience. The food, service and great view over shadowed the music. Had I noticed the music earlier it would have been a different experience.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWish I could go here onceWish I could go here once a week - always a pleasure with a great menu!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMView, Food all the best!Gorgeous view of Lake Tahoe.

My wife and I were in town for our honeymoon and all of the locals and frequent visitors to the Tahoe Area said that this was an excellent location. We had Matt as a server and he was very friendly and personable. I had the swordfish and my wife had the Ahi both were cooked to perfection. We made sure to be there during sunset and the view of Tahoe is amazing. Strongly recommend this venue for great food, great service, and splendid view.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view of Lake Tahoe fromGreat view of Lake Tahoe from the windows. We had six people in our party, two families on spring break. Most of had some form of prime rib, from kid's meal to prime rib & lobster tail which was prepared excellently, great flavor and perfectly tender. The lobster tail was prepared excellently & had great taste & texture. Other people had salmon and chicken where complementing how well it tasted and prepared. We visited during a weekday and we where surprised the amount of people that where there since most places have lighter crowds.
We visited other Chart House restaurants in Cardiff, CA and Palm Springs, CA and this location matches in quality & ambiance but the views of Lake Tahoe can't be matched by another restaurant in the area.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe tuna appetizer was delicious.The tuna appetizer was delicious. They have a wonderful salad bar. We had the scallops and shrimp for dinner. Our server, Nick, was fantastic. Would come back if we visit Tahoe again!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFast Service, Scenic ViewFor a corporate chain restaurant, the service was superb and the food was spectacular. We started off with a Brie dip that was off the menu. Let me tell you, it was a taste of heaven. My boyfriend also said the mini crabs cakes were the best he's had in awhile. The mussels appetizer was delicious as well. We chose the white wine tomato sauce. Our server was fast, responsive, and very good at upselling. We got everything he suggested and we're glad we did.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe saved the best for last!Great way to spend our last night in Lake Tahoe. Have never had a bad experience at Chart House. The view is outstanding and our waiter was superb - great recommendations and service.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
