Service was unimpressive and food was just very ok! Lobster bisque was very thick and prime rib was not well seasoned. Dessert also left a lot to be desired. We will not return.

We had a dinner reservation for 4 people and were seated as soon as we arrived. The hostess was very friendly. Our waitress, Mattie, came right over and introduced herself and gave us waters and menus. She was on top of everything and we had a wonderful experience. The food was superb. From start to finish, it was a wonderful experience and we will be back.

Very noisy with the open wall and the bar with happy hour right outside takes away from a fine dining experience. Slow food service waited an hour before we received our main course. We love the food but the loud party atmosphere is not what we are after when we want a nice meal.

What a great place to take someone for great food and a romantic experience. It’s just a short walk from Golden Nugget out the back by the pool or you can talk a golf cart ride.

Folks here are awesome. I never knew this place existed. It’s a great place to get away from the crowds at the casino!

A very nice facility. Service was okay (When the server was asked if amberjack was a white fish, the answer was, “It’s just fish”). The food was so-so. The value was terrible. I get that it’s co-located with a casino, and that’s what we get, but still. I expect so-so food for a steep price at an airport, but not at a restaurant chain that’s been around for decades.

The Manhattans we ordered were okay. The 2nd one I got was bitter. The chopped salads two of us got with our meal were fairly meh. The lettuce was too finely chopped and partly brown (i.e., old). The French Quarter oysters were good; a little watery for cooked oysters, but good. The kimchi calamari was good, but not so kimchi-y, and there was almost as much loose fried batter as actual squid. Two of us did the “Chart Your Course” option ($49). I got the “bronzed” salmon, whatever that is. It came with two grilled shrimp. The salmon was done nicely, as were the shrimp. The chive mashed potatoes had an odd consistency, like the potato was mixed with something else. Almost turnipy. My girlfriend got the shrimp trio. The mash was less than room temperature, and the shrimp were unremarkable. Neither plate was a $49 plate in my book. My nephew got a medium 9oz filet mignon with about four tablespoons of the mystery mash ($45). The steak was cooked on the rare side of medium-rare. He reported it was decent.

$275 (not including the $55 tip) for three people is not commensurate with the quality or quantity of the food served.

Nice place for brunch. The servers were attentive and the food was delicious. It was our first visit and we will be back. Only suggestion for improvement would be that the hostess could have been nicer towards new guests. She was curt and behaved annoyed about doing her job.

Chart House is a fun place to go from time to time. The ambiance and the view are much different than anything else in Lake Charles. The food is usually “pretty good”, but nothing amazing. It can get quite noisy, especially around the bar area. Overall, we enjoyed the evening.

It was super crowded with only a few wait staff. The tables were shoved so close guests and wait staff were constantly bumping around. The steak was cooked well but barely seasoned. The coconut shrimp was cooked well but again the seasoning left a lot to be desired. The nose level was so extreme I couldn't hear others at my table. The cost was super high and not worth it.

Sadly, not a great experience. We had eaten here before and it was great. This time the salad had visibly wilted/brown edges, the salmon was not fresh. My side dish of couscous and fingerling potatoes had overpowering seasoning and was undercooked. Prime rib was good. Service was excellent. For the price, I will not come again unless I hear it has changed again.

Despite being surrounded by crushed ice and sitting in a vat of CO2, the shrimp in the shrimp cocktail was warm, the cocktail sauce was runny.

The swordfish was tasty after I scraped a half inch of salt and other stuff off it. The little rabbit turds you guys called couscous was tasteless and my son said the lobster bisque had almost no lobster in it.

I really wanted the Thanksgiving meal, but the sweet potato mandate was as popular with me as the vaccine mandate is with most of the country, and I would have loved a regular potato option. Because there was no such option, I had to decline.

Victoria was the only saving grace. 10 stars.

I have eaten at Chart House 8 or 9 times and this was the ONLY time I have left unhappy. I came home and ate a SPAM sandwich.

Thanks Chart House. I wasted my money this day.

Best view in Lake Charles. We love coming here for Happy Hour but a great Brunch spot also. Love the variety on the menu selection. Also, the bread basket at brunch is honestly too good! The crab and mango stack is our favorite. We get it every time.

Maddie is such an excellent waitress. She is spot on and just attentive enough. She made our Thanksgiving meal so enjoyable. Hope we get her more often!

At arrival we checked in with the hostess, and she did not inform me that she would be texting me when our table was ready. It was rather loud that night and I did not hear my phone texts. Therefore, had I not physically checked in again with her, we would have lost our table. 🤔

The dinner was excellent! The service was impeccable! The only small
issue would be an extremely loud table seated directly next to us, it was difficult to hear my fiancé who was sitting next to me. Otherwise everything else was amazing!
