Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I ate at The Chart House for our Anniversary on July 5, 2014. It was fantastic. to start out, we had a table by the window and at the top of our menus was a printed message wishing us a Happy Anniversary -- what a great touch! Our Server was great, the food was great! I highly recommend The Chart House. We had the spring roll appetizer, I had lobster bisque which was loaded with lobster (really, really good); my husband had the beefsteak tomato salad, it had a large plate of sliced tomatoes, bacon, blue cheese, balsamic vinegar dressing and was topped with large fried onion rings -- tasted fabulous! For entrees, I had the flounder, my husband had the snapper. Both dishes were absolutely delicious!"

  • "We sat on the back covered deck area and had a really nice, relaxing dinner. The sun was setting and although it was storming, it was comfortable and there is great scenic view. The food was spectacular (best gazpacho soup I've ever had) and the atmosphere was lovely. We had our (5 pound) dog with us and the staff was very accommodating. We will be back!"

  • "The hostess was friendly. She gave us choices where to sit inside or outside. Got a table with a view. Our waiter was excellent. I enjoyed my meal. The scallops were excellent! I loved the wasabi mashed potatoes. My husband did not enjoy his meal. He had the mixed grill. The salmon was dry and the orzo was in a clump. The crab cake and the shrimp were just OK. We had the mud pie for dessert which was very good. Our waiter had warned us about the large portions so we had the mini and it was enough for 2 to share."

  • "I have been to Chart Houses all over the USA - mostly Calif. This one does not stack up or compare relative to food/value. The dinner was mediocre at best for too expensive a price. This restaurant would never stay in business in Calif. I was very excited when I first saw it, but disappointed when I left. I will not go back there."

  • "I was excited to go to this restaurant when I looked at the menu. Our appetizers were ok. I also got a chopped salad but when it came out it looked like the lettuce was brown and very soggy. I got the mixed seafood grill. Both the salmon and orzo was over cooked with raw carrot bits. My boyfriend got the chef special, sockeye salmon which was also over cooked and the sauce was broken and the short ribs. Finished the meal off with their lava cake. Again over cooked. For a proclaimed seafood place I would have expected flawless fish to come out of the kitchen."

  • "Last week, we had a lovely and enjoyable "Farewell" lunch for a co-worker who was relocating to Phoenix. The food and service was excellent. Looking forward to returning to the Chart House soon."

  • "We went for our anniversary and were very happy. The scallops and the filet medallions were fantastic. Of course their signature dessert, the chocolate molten lava cake was great as well."

  • "This place is amazing and we will be back many times in the future. You can bring kids and they would enjoy it but it is nice to have that place that is just between the adults. The staff is amazing by giving you the space needed to talk and enjoy each other but close enough to make you feel like you are their only concern. The food was some of the best we have ever had anywhere."

  • "We went to celebrate my birthday and had a very nice time. We were seated immediately and the staff was very attentive. We tried an appetizer, a salad, an entre and dessert and were not disappointed. The scallops were amazing! The menu offers a wide variety of choices. We will definitely return. The restaurant is set up so you can come for a casual outdoor experience or a more intimate or romantic indoor setting. We look forward to coming back and sitting on the outdoor deck and trying some different dishes."

  • "Great view and service, but way over priced. Fresh grouper was over $30.00, you can get the same down the street for half the price."

  • "I visited this restaurant for the first time on father's day during brunch time. The restaurant was not as busy as one would think for being a holiday. The brunch menu was not extensive but everything we had was delicious. Their Bloody Mary was amazing and the drink selection overall was fun. A must have is their signature chocolate lava dessert. It's a little on the expensive side for a dessert but it's worth every penny."

  • "My wife and I recently ate at the Chart House for dinner for our anniversary, and we both agree that the food was delicious and top notch from appetizers to entrees and the staff was excellent as well the night we were there! We will definitely be back again!"

  • "Have dinner there on a Tuesday evening. Not very busy, which is just the way I want it. It is quiet and have a table looking out the bay. Service is good and the swordfish cooked right. The Flounder Francese is a bit too heavy on the cheese and not very fitting with the delicate fish."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We went because we had a gift certificate. But the food was delicious, especially the appetizer and fish. Our table look out on the water. Beautiful view. Service was great. Was a rain storm out, so would like to go again when it is nice out and eat outside, maybe in the fall when it is cooler."

  • "We eat lunch here often and absolutely love the food. I get a salmon dish with fried rice which is the best salmon dish I have ever had. My husband loves the crab tower. Love the ambience especially the green room which feels very tropical. Servers are first class. One of the best restaurants in Tampa."

  • "We usually have dinner at the Tampa Chart House, but this time decided brunch worked best for time constraints. The restaurant wasn't very busy, except for a large party off in another room. We had excellent service, and our server answered all of our questions about the menu. My daughter has celiac disease and must eat gluten free at all times. Preparation is very important also. Her meal at the Tampa Chart House looked and tasted fantastic. She told us it was the best Gluten free food she's had in a very long time. the "regular" food was prepared very nicely, and tasted terrific. we love the view, but the food is the reason we'll return."

  • "Our first visit was unsuccessful. Chart House has the advantage of being one of a few restaurants with a Bay view in Tampa. However, the experience was mostly disappointing. Our party of 4 dined on a Saturday night at 8 but the inside bar was empty, the cool looking outside bar was not open, and there were several empty tables and no wait. Despite the deadish atmosphere, the hostessing was perfunctory and the bar exceptionally slow. The restaurant, menus, linens, silverware, glassware and windows were all clean; the slow "signature" cocktails tasted good; the salads were great (and huge); entrees just ok (creamed spinach awful). A cracked glass and overcooked entree were addressed by a manager. Not awful, but we probably won't be back."

  • "We arrived an hour before our reservation as we wanted to have a drink and sit outside on the patio. Very clean, very neat both inside and out. Quiet music playing in the background. Drinks made well. Dinner inside was a treat, good sized but not overly large portions, and the flavor was fantastic! Wife had Cedar plank Salmon (I wish I had ordered it, it was amazing). I had "Best of Shrimp" which includes Scampi, stuffed shrimp and coconut butterfly shrimp. Service was excellent, Herman (pronounced Ehr-Mahn) is the hardest worker there and deserves to be head waiter, he is most attentive, Management should take notice of his caring ways. No dessert this time, but not because we were too full, perfect night!"

  • "We dined outside at Chart House in Tampa the second week of June. The weather was perfect, and the location was peaceful. Everyone in our group of four ordered something different and everyone enjoyed his or her meal. "

  • "Or anniversary dinner was fantastic. Or waiter was attentive but not overbearing. Chocolate lava cake for dessert is the way to go."

  • "I would like to say that the time spent with my wife before she left on her trip, was wonderful. The restaurant is owned by Landry's and I expected nothing but the best. Unfortunately the waiter (from the Bronx) upon arriving "tried" to ruin our night. He approached our table and was very professional until....I asked about the Early Bird specials. Then his countenance completely changed. His head looked downward and then like he was disappointed, sighed and took a deep breath, he was not the same. We asked him to give us a minute. When he left the table I asked my wife if she noticed that? She said yes. I decided to not have a conversation with him or the mgmt and enjoy our time. I over-tipped hoping he would remember "don't assume! "

  • "My husband and I ate at the Chart House for dinner for the first time after enjoying brunch several times. I ordered the Flounder Francese and he ordered the coconut shrimp. With the Spring Rolls as an appetizer we were blown away by the quality of the food. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for excellent food, a good view (especially if you sit outside!) and very good service. We'll be back!"

  • "We chose this restaurant by the Chart House reputation and location--we had guests arriving at Tampa Airport, and this was a close and convenient location. Our party of 6 had everything from simple fish and chips to appetizer meals to one of the evening specials, and everyone in our party enjoyed the food. Our location request was for a table that was near the restrooms, but with a view. We had a great view of the bay, and my 92 year old Mother did not have far to go when she needed to visit the restroom."

  • "My wife and I had a wonderful time here. Dinning out for us is an experience and what a wonderful one we had. The food was incredible and the service likewise. We dress up for dinner and that was the only draw back that I had. If my wife is in a nice dress and myself in slacks and jacket please do not seat us next to people wearing TANK TOPS and flip flops. A dress code for this style of restaurant is normal. There is no valet parking. Other than that we highly recommend dinning here as we will continue to do so. Todd & Michelle"

  • "My husband and I were seated at a nice window table, as requested, facing the water. Our waiter, Scott, was one of the best servers that we have had there. He made recommendations without being pushy, and helped make our dining experience, and anniversary dinner, special. The fried oyster appetizer was so fresh and delicious, our chopped spinach salad, and snapper Hemingway was excellent as usual, and we enjoyed the lava cake and coffee as always. "

  • "I have to say the food was great and the service was excellent. I will say though for the price you pay and the location with the view, I would of expected the environment to be a whole lot nicer. It is so big inside and it had a little bit of everything mixed together...booths, large rooms for banquets, large groups of people, small groups...it was just a little much. It was extremely busy and noisy. Not a good place for a romantic night but a good place for leaving the beach if you want to stop on the way home for dinner. "

  • "Took my mom and sister here for a holiday brunch. Had reservations but waited about 10-15 minutes to be seated. The décor is epic, clean, bright and colorful, and the view of the bay can be seen from almost every seat in the house. Our server was speedy and efficient with our drinks, and wine order. There was a buffet and the variety of foods was amazing! From crab legs, fish, turkey and gravy, salads, breakfast items and even a carving station, this was a stunning display of scrumptious delights! The desserts were fabulous with a great selection of cakes, cookies, pies, ice cream and surprisingly, cotton candy. Overall, do not hesitate to come here, but make sure you have a reservation! This is the best restaurant I have been to in years!"
