Diner Reviews
  • "Our table was ready when we arrived. The view of the bay from our table was terrific. The waiter was very attentive and gave good suggestions. The food was very good and we didn't feel rushed at any time."

  • "We went to the Chart House for our 2nd wedding anniversary, although I used my maiden name. It was still a very nice gesture that we received a Happy 2nd Anniversary note printed on our menu. I've never had a restaurant do that before. I would have loved to sit by the window / water but we were sat in very nice area quiet & romantic. I will just have to remember window seating for our next visit :). The service from our server was exceptional and lastly the food was wonderful. My husband and I hadn't eaten so much in one sitting. Everything we tried was just great. Thank you all for a great first time experience. "

  • "I've been to this Chart House several times and the food never disappoints. This is the first time we've dined on the deck- the view was excellent. It took some time for anyone to appear to take our drink order then the assistant waiter filled the two water glasses on our table and never brought glasses for the other two members of our party.- once these issues were addressed the service was great."

  • "The food is very pricey for the quality and banquet like feel. Given the many great restaurant options in Tampa, you can leave this place off of your list. The outdoor seating and view was nice but the chairs and tables seem old and dusty. A wedding ceremony and reception was happening, and it was very awkward (at least for the people in the wedding I suspect) as their "walk down the aisle" started from the outdoor bar passing by all of the outdoor diners who were not associated with the wedding. Our waitress had a new waitress shadowing her, which included a long and awkward lesson in front of us of how to serve a bottle of wine with the waitress correcting every move. Very unproffesional approach by the restaurant."

  • "Food was great, but we arrived early for drinks and inside bar service was very slow. They seemed to be short handed, just one bartender and she was very busy with full bar and table orders, obviously not her fault. She was very pleasant through it all. Outside seating on the water was very nice and probably would have been romantic except for the wedding going on. Would have been nice if the outside tiki bar utilized for the wedding, was separated from the outside dinning area. All and all though, nice place, staff and food were great and we will probably try it at again."

  • "We have celebrated at the Chart House before with small parties of three or four. This time we came with 7 and sat outside. The day was perfect for it. The rest was not the music was just loud enough that the three other large parties we were sitting around has to talk loudly to be heard. Consequently - nobody could hear anyone. Also the seating was just close enough that the servers at the next table kept bumping our chairs. Lastly, all would have been forgiven except the food was just okay."

My wife and I got a romantic table near the window as requested which was wonderful. The staff and the food were exceptional! I love that Snapper Hemingway. Thank you Chart House! We'll be back!"

  • "The view was wonderful - their outdoor dining is just wonderfully relaxing. The service was Oustanding. The food was fantastic - everything from appetizers that we tried, to the dinner specials, to the lava cake dessert (nobody does lava cake better than the Chart House)."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I love the view from the dining room, and the food was delicious. The server made excellent recommendations for food as well as wine. The only downside to the entire evening was getting out of the parking lot since the restaurant is located on the bridge going one way."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "This is the second time we have been to this Chart House and it is always excellent. You do need to go here when you are absolutely famished because you are going to want to eat every last bit of your food because it is so good."

  • "The food was outstanding, as was the service. Took a client to dinner and the whole experience was outstanding. One of the best meals I've ever had. Will definitely be back!!"

  • "There was a wedding the night we went and it very loud. We also waited a long time to be waited that the manager compensated by "taking care" of our appetizer. Of course, when the check came the appetizer cost was included; we paid and left. No worth the agg."

  • "We were celebrating our 10th Anniversary with my wife and since we are from out of town, I asked for recommendations for a good restaurant to do this celebration. We were very impressed with the heading on the menu congratulating us for the anniversary. We were not expecting that. We took a picture and share it with our family. Of course, we did receive the menu back when we left the restaurant and we kept it as a very good memory. Thanks for making this celebration so nice."

  • "Our first time to this restaurant. Table had a nice view. Service was very good. Food was very good. I had the blacken snapper. My better half the grouper. Both were A-1. The restaurant was a little loud. However other than that it was a nice night out."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "We have been at this restaurant before and it has been pretty good but it has been a long time since our last visit. We had gone to the bar to wait for our table and we ordered drinks we got 2 of the drinks but had to wait for the 3rd she forgot about the drink for my Daughter we got her attention after 10 min. said sorry and made the drink, drinks (Martinis )not worth the $10 very SMALL GLASSES. My wife wanted Prime Rib and they stated on there web site they were one of the best in town. When the Prime Rib came out it was TERRIBLE!! I didn't think you could have a dry piece of Prime Rib but it was. The WORST I have ever had. Service was very slow! My Daughter had a Filet and she did not finish hers either said it was NOT GOOD NOT Recom."

  • "My husband and I enjoy fine dining. A friend recommended we try this restaurant instead of our usual experiences at Bern's, Charley's and Ruth's Chris. We were extremely satisfied with our experience. It was wonderful to dine on the patio, enjoy the live music, food and excellent view."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Great view of Tampa Bay, excellent food and service. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "The food was innovative and meticulously prepared. The service was good, however our server told us he would bring bread with our soup that we had ordered and we didn't get it until after we finished our soup and we had to ask for it. Our dinners arrived so fast I still wasn't done with my soup. My fiance and I are non drinkers so I ordered water and my fiance ordered a club soda, for which we were charged $3.25. For a club soda?? That is ridiculous. It's because of details like that, that I will think twice about returning."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "The service was impeccable, including acknowledgement for the reason of our dining (anniversary). The drinks were incredible; mango mojito and Arnold Palmer with sweet tea vodka. The food was beyond amazing starting with the ahi appetizer, Snapper Hemmingway and stuffed tilapia for entrees. We do not frequent this restaurant often, but we felt very special during our entire visit. The service and atmosphere was never stuffy or snobby. We had dinner on the deck which included the passing of an adorable and friendly black & white kitty. The view was beautiful. Everything was just perfect."

  • "Love the happy hour!!! We could sit for hours and order all the different appetizers and cocktails! Great deal!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "food is good, service is okay. we had to ask three times for one of our appetizers after the server pushed to order "several" (which we did). Granted restaurant was busy but it was Saturday night. Fair Servers bug you to death for the first three minutes once you're seated, and then don't return until you've finished your meal. At least the bussers at the Tampa location provided lots of water (a real problem at other locations). the food and view were good enough that we will always return, however; we won't have any expectations of "great" service. We were seated quickly, greeted quickly, but it took over ten minutes for our first round of drinks from the bar, and then the appetizer fiasco. entrees came out different times also."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The appetizers were *delicious*, while the main courses were good. (IIRC: coconut shrimp, hummus trio, lobster bisque, bisque trio, chopped salad; surf & turf, salmon, snapper and a chicken dish) Dessert was also good. (Creme brulee; apple and dried cherry tart.) The restaurant itself was too noisy and the service slow although the server was very pleasant and obviously doing her best keeping up with all of her tables. Overall, a pleasant experience."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Food was, meh… Parmesan encrusted whatever fish. That's the problem. Fish could have been anything, and it was not moist. Mussels appetizer included a bad mussel. It was not open and it smelled bad. How hard is that to catch in the kitchen? Staff did remove it from bill and provided a comp dessert. Wait staff was VERY good. On a positive note for the chain. We dined at the Melbourne, FL Chart House earlier in week and it was AWESOME. Now there's a Chart House I would highly recommend."

  • "My wife and I booked a late table at Chart House, we hadn't planned on stopping for dinner but I got hungry for some Prime Rib so we made a quick reservation online and went to Chart. We've had bad experiences dining out less than an hour before a restaurant closes, not so this time! We sat out on the quiet patio, had amazing service, and thoroughly enjoyed a 3 course meal! Our server Sue was amazing, and the manager even brought over a propane heater so we could sit at the table closest to the water! The Tuna appetizer was delicious, my wife thoroughly enjoyed her King Salmon dish, and the Prime Rib was delicious as always! All in all, we had an awesome late night experience!"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We have been to Chart House twice in the last couple months. The menu is always amazing! We are yet to have something that wasn't flavorful and fresh. Try the sirloin or the Ahi and you won't be disappointed. This restaurant seems to be pretty slow except for on holidays which is surprising given how good the food and service was. However, that did not bother my wife and I at all because it was quiet and romantic. View is to notch just make sure you have a table on the bay!"

  • "Been to many Chart House restaurants. Daytona, Jacksonville, Hilton Head and this restaurant is not on the same level as the others. Food was not served at a warm enough temperature, even the soup. Had to send back a steak to be cooked properly. General overall quality of the meal was not what we would expect at a Chart House restaurant."

  • "The restaurant is a bit expensive, but the food and service is good."
