    We have dined at this restaurant many times over the last 10 years and for whatever reason this evening was a failure in all categories for me and my three guests. Normally when I do a review for Open Table I am able to find at least one category that has some merit but on this night there were none.

    A very enjoyable dining experience on all levels. The atmosphere is laid back and comfortable, our service was excellent, the entire staff pleasant and accommodating, and although a bit on the pricy side, was delicious, beautifully prepared and presented. Overall we had a very, very nice experience at CH. BTW - their chocolate molten-style cake dessert alone may be worth whatever the cost!!! Amazing. Overall a great evening.

    The view of the Savannah River and the Talmadge Bridge is wonderful. We sat outdoors and our waiter was wonderful. I have had better food at the Chart House in previous visits. We had appetizers, wine, meal and dessert. The calamari & friends was very good, the wine was pretty good as well, the key lime pie was the best ever; however, the shrimp served was small (unlike my other visits) and the roasted vegetables were soggy and tasted spoiled. I could not eat them. My date enjoyed his fish but was not told it was going to be blacken (not on the menu and the waiter did not ask if he wanted it blacken). I usually go to the Chart House whenever I am in Savannah but will look for another fine dining spot.

    Very friendly and great service. While it was an expensive restaurant it offered a lot of choices ways to stretch how you used your money. The only real gripe I had was that I was not expecting my shrimp to be so heavily fried. We dined outside on a Thursday so it wasn't that busy. There was a large crowd at the bar when we'd arrived, but that didn't affect the promptness of service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    My boyfriend and I went to lunch for our anniversary. We were extremely excited about trying out this restaurant and ended up walking out extremely disappointed. The hostess was rude. The server was rude. I would give his name but he never introduced himself. The atmosphere just isn't friendly. Then we paid with two $25 gift cards. Our tab was only $35 and even though the server didn't deserve a penny as a tip, I gave him both gift cards and told him to keep the remaining $15. He chased us out of the restaurant saying one of the gift cards didn't work. After coming in and waiting for them to type it in, instead of apologizing, he walked over and told us we could leave. I will never return or recommend this restaurant.

    Had a wonderful meal and good service. Just didn't get that over-the-top experience we were expecting. It was our 45th wedding anniversary and I choose the CH because it has, in the past, provided that type of experience. All in all, it was a very nice evening and dining experience.

    We have eaten a many Chart Houses all over the country, so we expected great food. However, this food exceeded our expectations. It was the best food we have had in Savannah including many top rated restaurants. I had the prime rib and my wife enjoyed the trout. Bith were fabulous! My only complaint is the steep stairs. We are elderly. The next time I will make reservation and ask to be seated on the main level. They do have a handicapped entrance.

    We enjoyed a lovely evening celebrating a special occasion. From the moment we stepped in the door, the service was attentive. Our server, Elizabeth, was unobtrusive but readily available - such a gem! We were certainly impressed by the extensive wine list and settled for an excellent Australian red. Both the appetizers and the entrees that we ordered were out of this world delicious. However, we would have preferred to have a break between courses. Perhaps the answer to this would be to only order the entree once one is finished with the appetizer? After such a magnificent meal we didn't have room for dessert. All in all an excellent restaurant and to which we shall definitely return.

    We had never dined here before and were entertaining international guests visiting River Street. We wanted a scenic view and a nice seafood menu, but nothing too fancy or too casual. The Chart House was perfect. We had a wonderful table by the window with a beautiful view of the river. The wine menu was extensive and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the Grilled Scallops with Wasabi sauce - delicious! Our college kids also enjoyed the warm chocolate Lava Cake for dessert. We will dine here again!

I had the shrimp over cheese grits and it was okay, though kind of luke warm and could have been a little spicier. My wife and daughter enjoyed their meals.

    We had reservations for the Fourth of July and had requested an outside table to watch the fireworks. When we arrived we were told there was an hour and a half for outside seating. We had arrived a half hour before our reservation to allow for any crowds due to the Fourth. We took an inside table to wait for an outside table. They seated us right outside the restrooms where we had a constant stream of people coming and going. After having drinks and appetizers and waiting forty five minutes we spoke to Mike, the manager who said everyone wanted an outside table and unless we were "Club Members" we would just have to wait. We left. We have visited CH in Longboat Key and Weehawken and had a good experience. We won't be going back.

    Went to Chart House for my wife's birthday on July 4th. The food was a bit unpredictable. The fried green tomatoes were good but the calamari was chewy and a bit cold. As far as the entrees, my surf and turf was pretty lousy and my wife's Snapper Hemingway was very good. The biggest issue was that it took an hour to get our entrees after we received our salads. When I spoke to the manager, he barely apologized and did not even offer a free desert or any compensation for our issues. The place wasn't even crowded and I guess we know why. Never again. Too expensive to have poor service and unpredictable Food.

    We selected chart house to send our kids to for both their anniversary and our daughters birthday this past week and put it in the notes for open table.I made sure they printed out the open table reservation. In addition our son in law is leaving for his 3rd overseas assignment next week to Korea. I called the restaurant 15 minutes before they arrived and spoke to the manager Eric to explain this was a special event because of not just the birthday and anniversary but his upcoming deployment. He assured me he would make sure it was special. When they checked in for the reservation they were told they had no reservation. Fortunately they had the print out. Not only did they not get special attention they didn't even acknowledge her birthday!

    Celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday. Even though I listed the birthday on the open table reservation, the staff, hostess or waiter, never mentioned it. Waiter served the men first (ok with me) but this notes a lack of training. Entrees forced on the table even though we were only half done our salads. Salad plates never cleared so we eventually had to place them in a neat pile on the floor. Second glass of wine ordered when entree was served, didn't see it until we were ready for dessert. Cream for coffee was bad, need I go on? A lot of money for horrible service. Food was good.No manager around, just kids running the place. Usually at a nice place, the manager visits the table and checks on the patrons. Made a big mistake eating here...

    Visited this restaurant a couple of nights earlier and posted a review about their disappointing entrees. Last night, everything was back to the normal high standards of the Chart House. Chef recovered from a bad night on Tuesday to provide us with an excellent meal on Thursday. Great restaurant that we always make a point to visit when we are in Savannah.

    Mentioned in on-line reservation and to the waiter that it was 33rd anniversary. If we hadn't asked him to take a pic not sure it was noted. Didn't need anything special but a mere "congratulations" might have been nice. It's the reason we picked Chart House as our local Chart House (Melbourne, FL) is always responsive to special events.
