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.

The oysters were not good. The manager was very nice and took them off our bill. I didn’t find the food as good as it usually is. May have just been a bad night!!

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.

Had the best prime rib and sautéed mushrooms. Chopped salad was excellent. Everything was excellent. Brook, our server, was very friendly and brought everything out in perfect timing. We had a very enjoyable evening! Will be back for prime rib in the future.

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!

Sunday brunch with my wife. Got there early, table not ready yet. But sat in lounge and wait staff very attentive to us. Table ready at reservation time. Food was great. Had the seafood omelet and prime rib French dip. Service was a little slow, but didn't really matter as we were not in a hurry. Had a relaxing lunch.

Food was delicious, service was great. Only minor downside was the parking, limited parking availability since the spots are also for the golf club.

Service was slow given that there were not that many people at the place. I ordered an omelet with bacon and spinach. The bacon was charred and I told the waitstaff who replaced it with almost the same charred bacon. I took a few bites and felt like I was eating toasted cardboard. Definitely not worth the price. I was initially thinking of taking my brother to this place when we go back to GN, but definitely not now.

I absolutely love this restaurant and wanted to enjoy my Birthday there. I had oysters ) i always do) but tonight they tasted old. I ordered a charred steak on the outside and medium rare on the inside. What i got was a well done burnt steak. For dessert i received a Milton cake ( my favorite) and to my disappointment there was nothing in the middle but charred burnt dry cake that i couldn’t eat. I was so disappointed with my experience.

Compared to other dinning options on Golden Nugget properties, the value just isn’t there. I rather have steaks at Vic & Anthony’s and better value for seafood at Landry’s
