So glad Chart House is back! Wonderful service and fantastic new GM-Dion. Have to get their timing at brunch on serving the fruit cups before meal was nice in old days and have coffee made and ready to go. Also when presenting COMP meals-Landry's or Casino even when bill is completely paid for, have a copy of bill for patron so we can tip appropriately and keep for records. Excellent start to a great place!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday Brunch at Chart House. Our waitress (Cassie) was fantastic. The food was excellent. The manager even came over to make sure all was going well. Chart House is one of our favorite places to go. Would definitely recommend sitting outside, if weather permits.

The service was attentive & friendly. The prime rib & mahi-mahi were good. But the mixed drinks were average & my companion reported that his red wine was chilled.

Brooke was our server for our bachelorette evening and she did a great job. We had some plant-based eaters at the table and she was able to modify their meals to include only vegetables and they were extremely grateful to be accommodated. My steak was delicious, and so was the mud pie!

This was a special occasion for us. It was our 11th year wedding anniversary. Sara was our waitress and the entire experience was horrible the moment we set down till the end. She never wished us a Happy Anniversary and we had mentioned it to her several times during conversation. She didn’t listen to anything we ask and never brought my husband his drink after mention it several times. We have spent our wedding anniversary at the Chart House or one of the other Landry’s locations and have never experienced this type of service. Very disappointing after looking forward to a very nice meal for the first time after a very long stressful year. So sad....

We spent 10 days traveling all around Louisiana and this was one of the best dining experiences we had. The food was wonderful, the staff could not have been more thoughtful, and the lava cakes are the best we’ve ever had. Highly recommend.

Overall great experience. Our waiter Chris was very attentive and pleasant. Wine list is a little over priced and so-so on the selections. We had the crab, shrimp and mango for an app, lobster bisque for soup, salmon for main course and chocolate lava cake. All were amazing!

Do not, do not I repeat do not book an appointment for reservation at Charter House in Lake Charles. By far the worst dining service my wife and I have ever experienced. My wife and I ordered our complete meal appetizers and entrees. The appetizers never came my wife's food came first, my food came later and it was not what I ordered. The food was sent back, the food came back super late. We ask to see the manager the manager made zero effort to make it right. We just canceled the complete order. The manager never came back out never apologized. We just packed up and left. We would never ever book again and we would never recommend to everyone to ever book a dining experience there. Avoid it at all costs. We wound up eating at the waffle house and let me say the service and the food was far greater compared to this establishment.

We have dined here several times for special events and have always been thrilled with the quality of the food. However, this time the crab cakes were greasy and fishy. The person who had the fish & chips said it was similar to Long John Silvers. I had the crab/mango/avocado appetizer and it was very good and the prime rib was good. Our server was very attentive and explained the dishes very well. Just was not up to the past experience.

We arrived at the restaurant for our 7:15 reservation at 7:20, a bit late, we didn't know it was that far from the hotel. We were seated immediately and ordered drinks, that went well.

It was so loud in the dining room that energetic doesn't come close, more like a rock concert. We asked to be seated outside and that was much better. Ordered an appetizer and dinner at the same time while we had drinks. The appetizer arrived in a reasonable time, about 7:45, so that went well. At around 8:15,I asked the waiter to check on our order and was assured it was imminent. At 8:45, still no dinner.

The prime rib finally arrived at 9:05, over cooked, dry, and also cold. I was surprised that over cooked and cold could be done at the same time. I guess a lot can be done in 90 minutes.

The manager apologized and offered to replace the prime rib. I declined and he comped the check. Good thing.

Overall not a good experience.

My wife and I dine here every time we stay at the Golden Nugget and have always been impressed with both food and service. We were slightly disappointed after this visit. The food was good but didn’t knock our socks off like it has all the previous visits. The most disappointing part was the service. Our waitress was rude and acted perturbed anytime we asked her a question. It was my wife’s birthday and when she asked if she could order a Molten Cake for desert the waitress responded “ Uhhhhhhh NO that takes 45 minutes”. Neither of us even had a response for that we were at a loss for words that she responded that way. The other two couples with us had never dined there before and upon leaving they all made comments about the waitress. Will I dine here again? Yes, but if she is assigned to my table I will be asking for someone else!

I was a little let down by my dining experience at the Chart House. I've used often table several times and have never had to wait more than 2-5 minutes for a table... our wait time was more than 30 minutes! What am I making reservations for? The food was ok, but definitely not worth the "special" Valentine's Day pricing. The only thing that saved grace was the service, the manager was really nice and professional in trying to accommodate us after an underwhelming dinner. Ambience was typical upscale restaurant. I doubt if I ever return as there are several upscale restaurants in the area that have made far better impressions on me

The Valentines day special menu was ok, but nothing could be swapped not even a side of aspargus that my husband can’t eat! The dessert was dry and tasteless. I expect much better from them!

We made reservations for a Valentine dinner.
The hostess was very friendly and accommodating as we waited for our table.
Once seated our server met us with a smile and the enthusiasm as if he were filled with joy to serve us.
Every aspect of our dinner was wonderful. Service was excellent, food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect.
Low noise level made for a pleasant evening of conversation.
This is one of our favorite places to dine for all the reasons stated above.
Highly recommend this restaurant.

Although the restaurant was full because it was Valentine’s Day, the staff was friendly & professional, & service was very good! We splurged & chose from the special valentine’s menu, but quality of food was uneven. Lobster bisque, strawberry salad, steamed/baked lobster tails, filet mignon, & dessert were outstanding. However, asparagus spears & broccolini were undercooked, hard, unseasoned, & totally disappointing—as were the hard, overcooked fingerling potatoes. Pastry was totally soggy due to sauce, & both lobster tails with sauce were overcooked. I understand that it is difficult to prepare food in a timely fashion for a restaurant filled to capacity. However, at $140 per couple, I expected all items to be well-prepared. Also, dining room was very noisy & it was difficult to converse. (The only obvious sound-absorbing material was the carpeting.)
