    For what you are about to spend, go somewhere else. We had 6:15 reservations and weren't seated until after 7pm. The hostesses kept saying just ten more minutes.and ten became 20 and 20 became 45. Just as we were about to leave, we were seated.Since everything is an "add-on", including the salad bar with an entree,that just enhanced the annoyance of the evening. Go to ruth Chris's steak house for better food portion and flavors for the price.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/15/2009
    We just returned from a trip to Savannah Ga. where we visited the Chart House for dinner. Our dinner there was superb. The dinner at Melbourne Chart House was disappointing to me. The reservations were on time (Thank You) and the staff seemed very cordial. However, I ordered Clam chowder it was not even remotely as good as any clam chowder that I have had anywhere. The potatoes were hard (not cooked) and the flavor was very strange unlike what we had in Savannah. For my dinner, I ordered the Shrimp Trio. I was disappointed to only have a sweet sauce on the plate for the coconut shrimp and no other sauces. 3 shrimp seemed raw. The salad bar was scant with the items available. The other 3 guest with me said their dinner was better.

    We went with a group of 7. They had a pretty good Early Bird menu that included unlimited trips to the salad bar. (It's the nicest restaurant with an all-you-can-eat salad bar around). I picked the best entree in my group -- it was on the regular menu (not early bird), and it was the Baked Stuffed Shrimp. They were butterflied shrimp stuffed with their crabcake mixture, and baked. Served w/veggies and I got the baked potato too. Excellent choice. Service was very good. Desserts were pretty decadent. It was Mom's birthday and she was given a free chocolate decadent dessert.

    Been here many times now. Most recently, we dined with a party of 6. The quality of the food NEVER disappoints me. Portion size does though. I didn't pay $27 for a mediocre sized filet mignon and LITERALLY half a "scoop" of mashed potatoes. The plate looked wide open and barren. "Oh. That's it?" were my initial thoughts. Let me say again that the quality is outstanding. I really am trying to find the biggest thing that bugged me about the experience. We all had a great time and, like always, I will be back for sure.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 12/21/2008
    The Chart House, located on the Intracoastal Waterway in Melbourne, Florida always provides an exceptionally nice dining experience. The salad bar is filled with such luxuries as caviar, artichoke hearts, Caesar salad, hearts of palm, and fresh fruit. The entrees are pricey but well worth it. Food portions are ample. Service is discreet and unhurried, allowing the diners an opportunity to visit and enjoy the ambiance. Right outside the wrap-around windows is a view that varies constantly with the weather and the time of day. Watch dolphins leap, manatee rise to the surface to breathe, osprey hunt, windsurfers fly across the waves, and lots of beautiful boats cruise by. A great place for special celebrations. Order the lava cake!

    We have been customers of the Melbourne, FL Charthouse for many years. The food is consistently fresh, well-prepared, and correctly served. The salads are outstanding. The view is wonderful. The bar drinks are well done and the wine list is very good with a good selection of wines by the glass. On this particular visit, the service was somewhat off - coffee which was not hot, there were some delays in getting items requested by our guests, and bread was slow to arrive at the table. At this price point, I would expect a vegetable side dish with all entrees.

  • The food was in too small
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 9/27/2008
    The food was in too small portions & the food was too expensive. The food was considerably over price and not worth paying for. For an appetizer, I had (1) small crab cake for $13.99, that could easily fit in the palm of my hand. It was not worth that much money. The salad bar looked very unappetizing especially watching one of the salad attendants restocking the salad bar with lettuce from a bag of salad which could of been bought from Publix. It was definitely not fresh. The service was adequate at first and our server was very knowledgable about the menu, but she had atlest 4 tables and at times of 15 or 20 minutes would go by before we would see her. She did not refill our glasses for sometime.

    Outstanding evening for a Festivus celebration. I was originally booked at Hop Sings, but Elaine got me banned from that establishment. I quickly switched gears and decided to try the Chart House (instead of ending up at Kenny Rogers Chicken Dinners). Boy, was I happy about that! The people were "So Good Looking". The food was elegant, tastful and hot - like right out of a Calzone Oven. Dessert was to die for as my friend and lawyer Jackie Childes suggested we get the Rasberry Creme Bule. It was so good infact, I'll be beack next week with my best friend Bob Sacamento. ~Giddiyup!

    A Saturday night and it was noisy and service was average. One of the diners ordered Swordfish and the portion was miniscule (4 oz?) for $30. My prime rib was the same price and five times bigger...and was perfectly rare as I ordered. The $6.99 salad bar is not included, but is worth a trip. The food is decent, but we spent $220 for four, so it is not a great value for your $$$ Go for the early bird and the view.

    Do not sit on the west side of the restaurant during early evening hours as the sun will shine in your eyes until it sets and the heat coming off the windows will make you sweat. Do not order the prime rib unless you specifically ask for no end cut. Otherwise, you will get the end piece of the roast beef and it will be overcooked and tough.

    I've dined here for several years now, and they've always outperformed my expectations. The food is fresh and delicious, presented beautifully without being too "haute cuisine-ish". It is an excellent spot whether you are planning a romantic evening with your special someone, a family get-together or whether you are hosting a business dinner. The service is excellent and unintrusive - but always there when you need anything. 2 additional notes of interest: 1) They have the best salad bar in town, truly redefining this often neglected dish. 2) They have the best Hot Chocolate Lava Cake dessert my husband and I have ever tasted. You have to order it in advance/with your dinner which we didn't like at first - but it is worth it.
