Diner Reviews
  • "The food is always very good at Chart House. I love their fresh fish, Coconut Shrimp, and salad bar. Usually I love their crab cakes too, but this last time the crab did not taste fresh. I don't think Chart House management has ever visited another restaurant where you get a friendly greeting when you enter that makes you feel welcomed before being escorted to a table. The greeting at Chart House is cold and impersonal, and they can't wait to tell you, even with a reservation and with many empty tables, to wait even though there may be 3 or more hostesses standing around, talking, and looking at the reservations monitor. Not a great way to start the evening."

  • "My wife and I went to the Chart House for my birthday. We rarely go out to nice restaurants due to our tight budget. One of the main reasons we chose the Chart House was that they advertise Early Dining Specials from 4:00pm to 6:30pm on their website. When we arrived for our 6:15pm reservation the hostess informed us that the Early Dining Special ended at 6:00pm. Thus, we had a nice diner but spent much more than we had anticipated. "

  • "The food was quite good, but I could hardly hear the waitress as the room was way too noisy. We had to move closer together to even talk. The noise level must be reduced to be considered fine dining. When I pay that much I expect to have an almost perfect evening. We almost had to pass notes to communicate. It will be a long time before I return."

  • "Food was exceptional (always consistent) with great presentation. Service was probably the best out of all the dining establishments in the area. Great place to dine but noise can be exceptionally loud especially around bar area."

  • "We do not like eating a large meal late in the day. Your early bird menu is perfect. The variety is ample and the price is reasonable. The food is alway well prepared and the staff is always attentive and polite. We have several other couples that also enjoy your restaurant and this menu. Hopefully you do not change. Thank you"

  • "Our anniversary dinner along accompanied by our daughter and her new husband. Food was, as always, delicious. Service was excellent. A bit noisier than usual but for good reason. It was also prom weekend so there were many excited young adults dining as well. We've been going to the Chart House for years. It never disappoints."

  • "I ordered Fish and Chips. It was *very* thickly breaded with something that made it taste like dog mush. I had to peel off the breading to try to salvage the Cod. Before leaving, I decided to tell the waitress. They took it off the bill (but charged me for the salad bar, which was included with the meal). The other four people in my party all has encrusted Cod -- and none said it was good -- mediocre at best. At these prices (pretty high), the food should be at least good-tasting. It wasn't. I don't plan to return there ever for fish, although the prime rib looked good and I heard that it is. How can a high-end restaurant on the water botch fish so badly?"

  • "I took my dad and step mom here for their wedding anniversary. The manager selected a window view table for us and the staff ensured their anniversary was noted at the top of our menu which makes for a special touch. The prime rib and the coconut shrimp were both outstanding and the chocolate lava cake can't be beat. The Chart House ensured we had a very special evening. We even saw dolphins and a beautiful wedding party to add to the experience. Thank you"

  • "Waitress was horrible. Never in my 20 years of going to this restaurant have I ever seen a waitress touch our straws and put them in each of our cups with her dirty hands. They always place on a tray and you put it into your drink yourself. Her hands were noticeably dirty. Also, she was not friendly. She even charged my 7 yr old with a salad bar because he went up and got a cup of bacon bits. He didn't understand that everyone had salad bar but him and he wanted to be part of the crowd. Her poor service left a bad taste in our mouth and we probably will not go back for a long time."

  • "Get there about once a year, we vacation about an hour away. Salad bar is always very fresh and cold, including the plates. Crab and veggie fritters were exceptional. We had lobster that was very good, talapia that was really good and the prime rib was the best. Lava cakes were outstanding, remember to order with your meal. Mike our server was well versed in the menu, very pleasant and thorough. The experience was really great, as a matter of fact we are going back with friends tomorrow."

Our waiter was on top of everything, he knew when to refill the coffee take a way plates etc. without interrupting our conversation. We would like to see more waiters like him."

  • "I as rule most restaurants are not overly busy on Monday evenings. When we arrived and the valet's were backed up 6 deep. This was not going to be a typical Monday out. We had reservations for 7:00 & still we had to wait 50 minutes for our table. The bar was crowded but we were served quickly and had some fun banter with the bartender. Once we were seated we were put at a 4 top and the end of the restaurant next to another room that was hosting a private party. As their event ended they all exited in mass and all of them filed past our table. Not good. The food was excellent and our server was very attentive. 3 1/2 hours from our time of arrival until we finished desert and paid the bill. All in all a good, albeit long dining experience."

  • "We had a group of five and were greeted promptly. Part of our party arrived early so we went to the bar to wait for the rest of our group and it was packed. When the rest of the group arrived we asked if we could get a window seat. They said they had one. The person in our party who asked went back to the bar to wait until it was ready. After 20 minutes he went back to the woman who promptly asked him if the table was not to our liking and he told her that we were never sat. She asked the woman beside her who was at our table and they didn't know. We were promptly seated at the point, not a window seat but it had a nice view. Our waiter was amazing and all the food was wonderful."

  • "Took the family to the Chart House for a birthday celebration. Ages ranged from 7 to 68. All enjoyed the food and the view. We love the early dining menu although the entire menu is great and there are lots of selections to choose from. Personally I love the salad bar because I can get anchovies on my Caesar salad and they have hearts of palm. I always order the prime rib but their seafood dishes are really good according to others. It is always a special occasion when we go to the Chart House."
