Diner Reviews
  • "The service was great. Very friendly and welcoming staff. On our visit the restaurant was not crowded at all. The problem was that all the customers were seated in one area of the restaurant by the window so everyone had a nice view. It was pretty loud and we felt crammed being do close to other tables of guests when the restaurant was mostly empty. It would have been nice to at least be a couple tables away from others. The food was just okay. Don't get me wrong, it was good but I feel I could have gotten just as good a meal at a chain restaurant for half the price. The desert was excellent and again the staff was great."

  • "Food was quite average for the price paid. For a bit more go to Ocean Club, and it is that much better all the way around."

  • "This was my first time dining at the Scottsdale, Arizona location. I have eaten at other Chart House locations in other states. I truly enjoyed the layout of the restaurant and the great views. The ambience is also very nice indoors as well. I enjoyed my Clam Chowder, and Tilapia stuffed with Crabmeat. My out of town guest also enjoyed the same meal, but raved about the Lobster Bisque. I will be back to enjoy the vibrant "Happy Hour" bar scene next time!"

  • "Went to The Chart House in Scottsdale, AZ for the very first time for a first date and it was an excellent choice! Great scenic view and the food was amazing. Service was also top notch. Hopefully I'll be celebrating my anniversary there in a year!"

  • "We arrived 5 min. before our scheduled reservation. There were nearly a dozen empty tables, yet we were told we had to wait 15 to 20 min. to be seated. They suggested we stand in the lobby or sit in the bar. They did not offer a complementary drink or even bring a glass of water to the table. It was more than 10 min. after seating before a waiter came to serve us. They brought raw oysters without utensils to eat them. It took more than 45 min. for them to bring our entrees to the table and when they came, the vegetables were cold from having sat out so long and the fish was overcooked and difficult to cut. It took over an hour just to have a simple dinner. Then the server kept my credit card and I had to ask the manager to retrieve it."

  • "It felt like something was "off". Place was empty except for a few guests. The good was good, not exceptional. The waiter was not very outgoing and although courteous, did not offer much in the way of recommendations. The ambiance was wonderful, very romantic and the view was phenomenal. Would recommend for quiet romantic dinner where talking is main attraction."

  • "A bit Pricey if you are on a tight budget, if not...then for what you all get (view, Ambience, food, service) is well worth it! We want to go back just so we can sit at the bar and have a cocktail...as it was very cozy. Dark, rich wood... warm Ambience. Friendly service. They also have one of the very few salad bars around (reminded us of the Midwest) so it would be a great lunch place as well, if the dinner menu wasn't in your wallet."

  • "I will never go back. For my birthday, not even a candle. Menus with Happy Birthday written on. Threw then in the garbage. What a disappointment."

  • "Before deciding on this restaurant, I read a number of reviews, which any reader of this review can do for themselves. I won't recount them, only to say that I found none of the negative reviews to have any merit. Too many people are too nit picky in my opinion. Yes, I will say the experience is pricey, and that is why I classify it as special occasion, etc. Would I personally eat here often? Because of price, no, but that's the only reason. In every other way it is completely an enjoyable experience. Remember this is located in Scottsdale, and, well, you get Scottsdale prices. Go somewhere else if that is not acceptable to you. I would say that probably my main reason for a return, would be for view, and atmosphere. Good overall experience"

  • "The Chart House has been a long time favorite. Enjoyed the seasonal menu and shrimp appetizers. Our table over looked the lake and watching the sunset was great. Service was excellent as was the food."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The beef tenderloin was a bit bland and slightly over cooked. The salmon tasted off like it was just going bad. The menu did not offer an option for an all leafy green house salad; only chopped ice berg with some pieces of greens. Asked for a to-go box for rest of entrée and side of mushrooms. Unfortunately our left overs were thrown out instead of being boxed up for us. The manager offered us a piece of prime rib to go to replace the left over tenderloin. We accepted the but prime rib but prime rib is never as good warmed up later. During out dinner we were offered some sort of rewards promotion. We declined; would have preferred to not have been approached for this type of thing during our anniversary dinner."

  • "We have been Charthouse patrons for many years and have dined at many Charthouses throughout the country. The salad bar selections were lacking compared to past experiences and this was an aspect that we enjoyed the most. The only fruit offered were strawberries, in the past we enjoyed a variety; cantaloupe, honeydew, Watermelon & even fresh whipped cream. The grated cheddar looked like packaged-not fresh. The entrees were ok. The shrimp were small & the bread stale.The mud pie was totally different, the ice cream has changed as well as the crust. We were not offered a refill on our coffee. The restaurant & view were lovely. Overall we were disappointed and for the $ we spent we would probably choose another restaurant."

  • "It was totally empty other than two tables in the dining room. No bartender or hostess. Waiter took order & disappeared had to find him to get check & service. Never seen it like that before. Olives in salad bar weren't very fresh and the ranch dressing was quite thin. Chicken was good but a very small portion. Not a good night I guess!"

  • "Wonderful meal, great service, great view. Best crab stuffed tilapia I have had in a long time. When you make your reservation ask for a table by the window so you can look across the lake and watch the sunset."

  • "Stopped in the bar for a glass of wine before dinner and the bar service was excellent. Service in the restaurant was equally pleasing. The view of the lake from our table was terrific. The menu, although obviously slanted toward seafood, was diverse enough to suit every member of our group. The gazpacho soup was great and the mixed grill (salmon, shrimp and crab cake) was reasonably fresh (for a restaurant in AZ) and very well prepared. Although a bit distant from our home, we'll be back on occasion to enjoy all the aspects of this fine lakeside restaurant."

  • "My fiance and I go out to eat 4 or 5 nights a week and usually places like the Chart House. We got a seat right next to the window overlooking the lake at sunset and it was gorgeous. This is where the happiness stopped. The service was A DISASTER!!!! It was just awful. I had a dirty glass, and when I asked for it to be cleaned you think I asked for them to go to the store and buy a new one that I could take home. The food was mediocre at best. We had to constantly ask for refills and they were in a HURRY to get us out at the end of the night, though it was no where near closing time. We asked for the manager. He never came. Our waiter told us he was "busy". Yeah, I'm sure he was with other complaints."

  • "I've enjoyed dining at vaious Chart House locations for many years. Mike was our waiter and he was simply outstanding. He knew the menu and made great recommendations. I order the halibut. Unfortunately, it wasn't prepared well. Based on the grill marks, the cook forgot about it after placing it on the grill and it was completely cooked without flipping the piece. This made one side of the meat very tough. They were very apologetic and provided a comped dessert. The key lime pie was outstanding. "

  • "I have no significant complaints except the portion sizes could have been larger. A $40 8oz filet mignon could either have been 12oz or less expensive. I don't mind the pricing, but I expected a little more food for the money."

  • "We have dined there many times previously. We dined during restaurant week and the service was very bad. There were extra tables and not enough servers. We had a guest who had never been to this Chart House before and I was upset that the service was so bad. We ordered drinks and then an hour passed when our order had not been taken. Our waiter had told us after about 10 minutes that he would be right back. But when the hour had passed we called the manager over and he took our order. The food was very good, but I think the restaurant needs to train their wait staff better. When we left the manager did tell us that only during Restaurant week are they so busy and that at other times the serve would be better. We are aware of this."

  • "Overall good, not outstanding. Food was not "hot" but was warm. Service was good but not great. From ordering to delivery of food took to long. "

  • "Our experience was very good. We went during restaurant week and ordered off the special menu. The food was excellent. Our waiter was very good till he got a table next to ours that was ordering lots of expensive wine and food. He then was consumed by them. I understand as his tip was going to be much larger with their table. All was a good experience and his service was good during most of our meal. There was a bit of a wait for our bill but all in all it was a very good experience and we would certainly go again. "

  • "So disappointed! My son and I ordered the coconut shrimp which was nothing more than what you would get in the freezer section ,pre-made, at the grocery store. They served it with a dipping sauce that tasted like sweet chili sauce with lemon juice. My husband had the macadamia nut chicken which was not edible, It had a funny odor, was dense, and dry. He wasn't sure if it was safe to eat. The fingerling potatoes tasted like unseasoned boiled potatoes. Vegetables were unseasoned. If you are a foodie stay away from this place. There is nothing worse then paying a lot of money for food, and it tasting bland and forgettable. We don't know how this place stays in business in Scottsdale with so many other choices for steak and seafood."
