Waiter Adam - outstanding!!!
No one Relayed the fact that this was a birthday celebration so no one recognized that in any way. The reservation on opentable stated this and fact that needed gluten free and this was not recognized either. Prime rib was top notch. We have cebrated 3 family member birthdays almost entirely the last 6 years and this was disappointing not to recognize Birthday

I made a reservation through Open Table for a Friday night. Surprisingly, the restaurant was only about half full, possibly because it was a holiday weekend (MLK Day). We did not order an appetizer but we did order a nice bottle of pinot noir wine. Unfortunately, while we were eating the complementary bread (tasty), we finished our entire bottle of wine before our food showed up! Super slow. Then, my mashed potatoes we barely luke-warm. The server brought some more mashed potatoes in a super hot dish, but the potatoes themselves were still only slightly warmer than the first batch. Completely unacceptable. The only reason I am not giving 1 star is because our fish (the crusted salmon and the grouper) were excellent. We were also seated next to a large table with a family with several young, often loud children. We live in the local area and are Landry's Club members, but after this past visit, we'll have to think hard before coming back again....

We love Chart House and frequently choose it, for either special occasions, or just for a nice night out. Service is usually good, however, this time it was a little slow.

The service, as usual was outstanding. Gene our waiter, was always attentive to our needs. The food was delicious, and the view of the ocean was fantastic.
