    POSITIVES: We were celebrating a bday & nicely surprised to see a personal greeting printed @ the tops of all of our menus. We were given them as keepsakes on our way out; rolled up & tied w/ ribbon - simply from mentioning in comments section of online reservation that we would be celebrating a bday. NEGATIVES: lipstick blotted from previous diner on the edge of tablecloth & an unkempt ladies room. A WELL ATTENDED LADIES ROOM IS AN IMPORTANT - & ALL TOO OFTEN OVERLOOKED - PART OF THE EXPERIENCE. 2 guests in our party were served steaks cooked opposite of how they were ordered. In compensation, our dessert was deducted from bill w/o having to ask.

    We have one at home and have been consistently underwhelmed but this Charthouse is beautiful with a fantastic setting on the water. good service and well prepared food. The ambiance is really the thing here--water views from almost every vantage point even if not seated at the window. The fact that you can be well taken care of and enjoy a nice meal...and I failed to mention I had to change the reservation 3 times because our group kept growing and still exceeded my reservation count by the time we arrived and they handily accommodated us.

    Food is excellent and view is spectacular.I did not like the forced valet parking for which I could see no reason. It only served to delay our leaving as other parties were leaving at the same time. I could see my car about 10 yards from the entrance but had to wait

    Really enjoyed dinner at the Chart House. The service was terrific and the food was very good. My husband had the prime rib and said it was as good as any he'd ever had at a restaurant. I had lobster bisque and the snapper. The bisque was very, very good, but really didn't have much lobster in it. The snapper was cooked perfectly. Overall, dinner was better than expected, and the view was magnificent. The only things I would change have more to do with how the restaurant is managed - like the waitresses pushing Landry's Select Club. Having a dinner reservation doesn't make any difference; you still have to wait on a table when you get there (this was on a Tuesday night). Also, the mandatory valet parking is just kind of weird.

    We always love the Chart House in Melbourne but this was extra! Not only did we have a window table but the tuna tartare appetizer was great. Then on to the Gazpacho Grouper- one of our favs and it didn't disappoint again! We'll be back soon!

    I do not live in Melbourne so when visiting I always go to the Chart House. The food and service is always top notch. We were celebrating my fathers birthday. It was a very nice afternoon, he had Eggs Benedict and I had some clam chowder and the shrimp and lobster rolls. Everything was great except the rolls. The were filled with way too much filler and hardly any shrimp or lobster. First time I was ever disappointed at the Chart House, just will not order that again. Otherwise it was a very nice brunch!

    I would only encourage the Chart House to work harder to make sure all the food comes out at once. Serving side dishes when the meal is 75% eaten is frustrating. Three of my last four visits have had serious service snafus.

    I had to put very good rather than outstanding food because my friend's short ribs and mashed potatoes were a bit dry and there were only 2 scallops (new surf & turf entree). They tasted nice, though. My swordfish was outstanding, as was the hot lava cake.

    Celebrated my 64th birthday here. As always, service was excellent. The manager came by to wish me a happy birthday. My mud pie dessert had a lit candle on it. Thankfully, they didn't sing! The view of the sailboats returning to the harbor at dusk is wonderful. My husband had prime rib w/mashed potatoes & Caesar salad - he said it was perfectly cooked & delicious. I had coconut shrimp w/coconut ginger rice & the amazing salad bar. I'm not a "foodie" and my less-than-perfect score for the food is because I'm not fond of the sides that come with seafood - vegetable orzo or ginger rice, and the rolls were cold and a little tough. Restaurant seemed noisier than usual, but it was a Saturday evening, and we came at 6PM rather than our usual 5 PM.

    Not quite the standard of other Chart House's I have had the pleasure of dining in my travels. We were celebrating my Girlfriend's Mother's birthday and excited to dine here as we have shared much success in other Chart house locations. Clearly not the case here as both the service and food quality were sub standard. Birthday girl very excited for the Prime Rib but unfortunately was LOADED with fat and gristle and too tough to cut with their sharp steak knives. Lava Cake was the only thing good consumed this evening. We will certainly go to Steak &Lobster in Melbourne Beach the next time for her birthday or any other special occasion and stick with Jacksonville, Boston and New Jersey the next time we visit Chart House for dining.

    The food was excellent, as usual, however the service left a lot to be desired. The waiter was extremely slow to refill my water, which is surprising given the amount of money we were spending elsewhere (appetizers, entree, desert, cocktails). He forgot to bring us the side of creamed spinach (very good btw) we had ordered in addition to our entrees. By the time we received it, we were almost completely done eating. It seemed like our server was more attentive to other patrons in his area but that could have been due to age differences (we're younger) or amount of wine being purchased (we don't drink wine). All in all, the lack of attention by the server soured the experience and certainly will affect our dining choice in the future.

    Your service with wait staff and valet has improved greatly yet you should focus more on the kitchen/chef/staff. Meals are good yet the prime has been delivered cool not hot and whoever cuts the steak from the roast is terrible with a knife. Uneven cuts..thick on one end, thin on the other and they appear to be reducing portion size yet the price continues to climb. Fix it with training needed!

This time, however, we had to continually tell our server to stop rushing us. We'll refuse him should he show up at our table again.
