It has beautiful views of the sunset on Lake Tahoe, or at least through a bunch of trees. The food is delicious. It feels very upscale.

Great view and pretty good service - the rest was disappointing...
Food arrived at room temperature, prime rib was tough, everything over salted.... My husband sent his meal back and by the time it came back. I was finished eating,
Would not recommend!

I have been a patron of the Chart House for more than 30 years.... I was disappointed, my table was incorrect, I called ahead for a special birthday and they ignored it
and the food was just okay.

We ordered filet and new York steaks. The meat was tough and no flavor. Also had coconut shrimp. Couldn't eat the rice. Stuck together like glue. We brought our friends visiting from Wisc. Very, very disappointed. We go to a Chart house whenever we have the opportunity. Probably will not dine with you again. Please forward this to the manager of Chart House in Tahoe. I do not want to rewrite my comments in the area below. Thank you. Vickie Fagerland. 916 207 1633.

Lovely setting, we generally like it. Hostess was accommodating & waiter ok. But food took over 20 min for 1st course, apparently order was lost in kitchen. The food so-so. Asked for box for leftovers & was told kitchen staff threw out by mistake. Came for Wife Appreciation Day, which waiter knew nothing about.
Too bad, it’s a nice location & we had invited guests to join us. Embarrassed.

We had a GREAT server but the kitchen was unable to cook my $50 filet mignon beyond "rare" despite two attempts (& the filet looking like a butterflied shrimp!). Not a good experience even though they comped the steak & an appetizer.

We absolutely loved our dinner dining experience!
We came to Tahoe for our honeymoon and had a fabulous waiter named Graham who took care of everything from sitting to desert which was great! The chocolate lava cake is well worth the 30 min fix time-yum yum!! Thanks for giving us a very hospitable and palitable experience- we'll be back!!!

Thanks you Rebecca - you helped us make our birthday celebration fun and memorable!! Food was above par. The crabcakes; crab avocado tower and of course the prime rib was excellent.

For special occasions the Chart House is our "go to" restaurant! We know we will have a delicious meal, along great service, and a fabulous view of Lake Tahoe! Also, whenever we mention we're celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or another milestone, we always receive a menu with the notation at the top of the event -- a nice memento to take home! On our latest visit, Karen (male) was our waiter, and he was great; he also surprised us with a complimentary dessert.

This is the best restaurant in Tahoe. I was a little disappointed this time. The salad bar was empty on some of my favorite things and girl working was so busy and stressed she did nothing. After telling our waitress you’d think she would have helped but she did nothing. Left me feeling a bit disappointed.

Although not directly located on the water, this Charthouse has a great 360 view of Lake Tahoe with great sunset views as well. This is a slightly high-end restaurant, but the service level received combined with the food quality is very high-end quality! This is a short 15 minute drive from the downtown South Lake Tahoe area and 25 minute drive from Minden or Gardnerville areas. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and it's also a great place for special occasions.
