    I enjoyed the spare ribs meal at your facility. I was a little dissapointed that it tasted like you poured a bottle of BBQ sauce on it. I had expected a more unique taste. To me this meal was average at best.

    Excellent food and service. We had a large party with several young children and they placed us at the window that gave the children extra room to move around and still stay out of the way of the other customers and wait staff. It was a very enjoyable evening.

  • The food was in too small
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 9/27/2008
    The food was in too small portions & the food was too expensive. The food was considerably over price and not worth paying for. For an appetizer, I had (1) small crab cake for $13.99, that could easily fit in the palm of my hand. It was not worth that much money. The salad bar looked very unappetizing especially watching one of the salad attendants restocking the salad bar with lettuce from a bag of salad which could of been bought from Publix. It was definitely not fresh. The service was adequate at first and our server was very knowledgable about the menu, but she had atlest 4 tables and at times of 15 or 20 minutes would go by before we would see her. She did not refill our glasses for sometime.

    Outstanding evening for a Festivus celebration. I was originally booked at Hop Sings, but Elaine got me banned from that establishment. I quickly switched gears and decided to try the Chart House (instead of ending up at Kenny Rogers Chicken Dinners). Boy, was I happy about that! The people were "So Good Looking". The food was elegant, tastful and hot - like right out of a Calzone Oven. Dessert was to die for as my friend and lawyer Jackie Childes suggested we get the Rasberry Creme Bule. It was so good infact, I'll be beack next week with my best friend Bob Sacamento. ~Giddiyup!

    A Saturday night and it was noisy and service was average. One of the diners ordered Swordfish and the portion was miniscule (4 oz?) for $30. My prime rib was the same price and five times bigger...and was perfectly rare as I ordered. The $6.99 salad bar is not included, but is worth a trip. The food is decent, but we spent $220 for four, so it is not a great value for your $$$ Go for the early bird and the view.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    Do not sit on the west side of the restaurant during early evening hours as the sun will shine in your eyes until it sets and the heat coming off the windows will make you sweat. Do not order the prime rib unless you specifically ask for no end cut. Otherwise, you will get the end piece of the roast beef and it will be overcooked and tough.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 8/26/2008
    I've dined here for several years now, and they've always outperformed my expectations. The food is fresh and delicious, presented beautifully without being too "haute cuisine-ish". It is an excellent spot whether you are planning a romantic evening with your special someone, a family get-together or whether you are hosting a business dinner. The service is excellent and unintrusive - but always there when you need anything. 2 additional notes of interest: 1) They have the best salad bar in town, truly redefining this often neglected dish. 2) They have the best Hot Chocolate Lava Cake dessert my husband and I have ever tasted. You have to order it in advance/with your dinner which we didn't like at first - but it is worth it.

    Another fabulous evening at the Melbourne Chart House. The restaurant was quieter than usual but that was due to Tropical Storm Fay. Our party of 8 was seated on time and the service provided by Tom was exceptional, both professional and personable. Everyone in the party partook of the salad bar and between us had 6 different entrees. The Snapper Hemingway was divine as always, the Prime Rib and New York Strip cooked to perfection the mixed grill, Yellow Fin Tuna and Bronzed Swordfish, fresh and delicious. We shared the Lava Cake for dessert, the combination of melted chocolate, cake, heath bar and ice cream was delightful.

    We haven't been here in quite some time. This was where our families met for the first time, 14 years ago. Going back was special for us. The wait staff wished us a happy anniversary I don't know how many times, so the night was very special. The food was excellent, and the view was spectacular. I had the fillet and shrimp combo, my wife had the bay scallops, and both were prepaired just the way we liked them. We even got to keep the menu's of our night out. Thanks for an excellent evening.

    The superb view of the river, boats slowly passing by and the restaurants subtle nautical theme is soothing and perfect for a romantic evening. We have visited many restaurants in the area and have to say the Chart House has the best wait staff we have encountered. My wife had the Coconut Shrimp which was cooked to perfection, and I had the Prime Rib and Shrimp which was outstanding. It was a perfect evening.

    Our prime rib we ordered Medium Rare came well done, had to send it back. This was the second time we have had problems with our orders there. Last time was Mother's day when they ran out of steaks and asked members of our party to change their orders. They accept AAA for 10% discount but watch how they take it off. We had a gift certificate this time and they took off the gift certificate first then the 10% discount so they did not discount the whole meal. This restaurant caters to the affluent and forgets that there are some of us that would like to sample their menu but have to count our pennies to survive. Thanks

    Went to Chart House to celebrate husband's birthday and stated in my note to MD. Was seated at a window seat, our server used to be a manager at a Perkins Restaurant. He kept reminding my husband he has a complimentary mudpie... I thought that was suppose to be the "surprise" at the end?? Overall the food is good, the service is not at the same level as the food. Since it is one of the few higher end restaurant in Melbourne, we will return for special occasions. I would not recommend Melbourne Chart House for a quiet romantic dinner except for may be the view. The noise level is pretty high.

We are very surprised to see such upscale dining in this area. Our waitress/server was exceptional and the food was excellent. I had the specials on her suggestion. They were superb. Wonderful wine list. Great view. We are so pleased to have tried the Chart House. It was our 1st anniversary. You are more expensive than our usual night out which is usually Ruby Tuesday's and I always get the salad bar. I can't wait to come back. Thanks so much.
