    Dined on 8/16/2014
    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!

    The Prime Rib and Loaded Baked Potato I ordered was by far the best meal I've ever had, ever... So tender and delicious and cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend!! The service was fantastic, everyone was very friendly. What made our dining experience even more special was the beautiful ocean view and sea life activity.

We had a nice dinner, waiter and personalized menus wishing us a Happy Anniversary. It was a special touch that we were able to keep the menus and as keepsakes.

    As always, Chart House provides a great place for a quiet celebration. The food is outstanding, the ambiance pleasant, and usually the service is attentive without being intrusive. 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.

    Being from Hawaii, I have a tendency to be very judgemental on "Oceanside or Oceanfront" dining locations regarding the view & "freshness" of seafood..Melbourne Charthouse was a beautiful spot to celebrate my 40th bday while on vacation. From the moment the complimentary valet service greeted us at curbside, the exquisite "Big Island Shrimp Roll" appetizer and Miso glazed salmon & tender beef and "to die for" desserts...just a fabulous dining experience! Well worth the price! I plan to return on my next trip to Melbourne! Mahalo Nui Loa!

    This was my first visit to this Charthouse and I was not impressed. On the positive side the food entree was very good. We ordered oyster for an appetizer and when they were opened they were washed losing all their flavor, not acceptable. Then before we could even finish the appetizer the meal arrived. Also not acceptable for a restaurant of this level. The service was very pushy and it seemed that for every thing we ordered the waitress pushed us towards something else. It should have been very relaxing yet was somewhat stressful. Not what I was expecting for the price and based on previous experience with Charthouse restaurants.

    This was a birthday celebration with excellent vodka martinis and superior menu selection, particularly of sea food. They make a spinach salad as an appetizer but it's excellent and large enough for a full meal. And that's for a very reasonable price. Main meals are in the $30+ range, with $7.50 salad bar tacked on. Excellent view on the river, great ambience efficient waiters and waitresses. Worth the extra cost.

    The food & view were as usual, awesome. Our usual server, Jonathan! was off. The fellow we had was a pain. He acted and stated that he doesn't particularly care to wait on people who choose to dine al fresco! It's the Chart House! . We are regulars there and have never experienced this before here! We dined on a Thursday night and they were not even crowded! Then he seemed to rush us. So, we purposely took our time. Being frequent Landry Club Diners, we had bonus $ to deduct from the bill. When he brought it back, he coyly reminded us what the total amount was before deductions. As if we didn't know what to tip on! VERY UNPROFESSIONAL! Do go, but ask for Jonathan. He is a young man who WILL give you impeccable service, even outside

    I booked a table for 2 asked for a window, my wife's birthday, expecting a quiet romantic occasion. We were seated next to a party of 6 - large, the large electronics, firm having a business meeting with a accounting firm. Chart house food and service was fine, but our table on one side was the party of 6 and then a quieter table 2 Realtors or bankers discussing business. For the party of 6 as the rounds of drinks and bottles of wine progressed- I got to hear every possible business bull&^% Buzzword: Synergy, Bring your A Game! we need to show that you guys "add value" with something better than a Checklist. The bankers were fine and quiet. Won't go to Chart House again unless its business and I can expense it.

    Chart House Melbourne never disappoints us. The river views, complete with dolphins playing are stunning and memorable. We are always impressed with the upscale level of service and attention to detail by all the staff. From the moment we arrive and the valet takes our car, to the greeting by the hostess, the attentive wait staff, individualized menu for your special occasion dining, everyone here makes you feel welcome and important to them as a customer. Not enough businesses do that anymore. We keep coming back for the "best salad bar in Melbourne", menu selections for all tastes, especially the excellent fish and everything always prepared as ordered. We always celebrate birthdays, anniversary's and new Years Eve here.

    Fortieth wedding anniversary. Best place in Brevard to just sit and enjoy the view and eat good. Love the salad bar. Friday night sailing group went right by our window. Watched about 15 sets of white sails out across the Indian River for about two hours. After dinner walk along the dock by the marina looking at the boats, water and birds. Ted (TD?) was wonderful. The crowd at Charthouse is always quiet, courteous and appropriately dressed. Very nice.
