The Chart House is a long standing fixture in the beautiful Tahoe environment. Food and service is consistently excellent. According to my wife they make the best cosmos ever. I have been enjoying the Chart House for over 30 years.

They took the coconut shrimp off the appetizer list so that it's only a dinner option so I ordered the wrong item. I was fairly disappointed but the manager made it right. The experience is always something my husband and I enjoy. It is a definite celebration designation and for good reason, it is clean, the food is good and so are the drinks, the staff is professional and the ambiance comfortable ... but the view of Lake Tahoe and the snow covered mountains are spectacular. Though you don't need to eat there to take in the view ... the combination is a winner.

1st let me say that it was a very special birthday dinner. I got there with an hour to spare so that I could go to the bar for happy hour and get drinks and a special appetizer. the bar on sun evening was packed and Nowhere to sit down, waited for 15mins and still nothing. I asked the waitress if I could just sit at the table for us and bring the drinks and appetizer over, No... and let me say, the place was empty and it would not have been any inconvenience to them at all . Plus our table was right next to the bar and I was within
arms distance from the bar area. I just felt that we should have gotten happy hour pricing seeing we got there early for our table and such.
then this is a pet peeve fro me, No Prices On Beer Menu. why is it that resturants think that I should just pay whatever for something. lately it seems like a practice that is not right, that is just me. when I ask why the
most popular answer is its just a couple of bucks difference, ok then you pay the difference. lol
as for the food from the chart house it has yet to disappoint me. as for the night there, I put down it was
a special occasion Birthday. I would have thought they would have known and not asked about the desert.
I had to tell her and she said yes, you should receive a mud pie. which we did and was great.
the view was great, the server was very good. for me it was the happy hour thing that sucked.

Awesome view of the lake from almost any seat in the house. Seated promptly after arrival, right on time for the reservation. Food was very good, not life-changing, but nicely done as expected for this type of restaurant. Service was very good, prompt and attentive but not overbearing. Not cheap, but for a hi-end restaurant with spectacular views, in line with expectations.

Everything was fantastic. We started with the coconut shrimp appetizer. It came with 3 different dipping sauces. My favorite was the teriyaki. Then I had the lobster bisque. It was quite a large bowl. Delicious! Then onto the 7oz filet with mushroom truffle butter. Done perfectly. Garlic mashed potatoes accompanied the steak. It was my birthday so they included a piece of Mississippi Mud pie; complete with a candle. Our server Cary provided excellent service! What can I say about the view? Beautiful!

Great restaurant with great offering of steaks or seafood. The setting is amazing with the Lake Tahoe Views as well as service and food. There have a great bar area with a weekly happy hour that works when you do not want the dining room experience. You can not go wrong either way. The Swordfish Del Mar is a top notch dish.

Oh my goodness the food was amazing!!! Pinterest worthy for sure. My husband is very intolerant of onions and the staff was the most considerate we have ever encountered. They were concerned and helpful. Be sure to order the shrimp cocktail! It comes over dry ice and is video worthy.

Somewhat slow service even for a dinner house and not what we have experienced at other chart house locations. Also the prime rib was tougher than expected. All of this said, we may try again next time we are in Tahoe.

I visited with 4 friends. Overall everyone was well pleased. My only complaint is that the "blackened" preparation that I ordered was not blackened, but merely had cajun spice on it instead. So I was not happy with that, but otherwise all was good!

When we were sat down for our anniversary dinner in which my Husband had made reservations for and from right then I was impressed with Chart House. Not only did they have us set in a window seat that had breathtaking views they personalized our menu with the date and happy anniversary on it. Our waitress and the rest of the staff were fabulous and very accommodating. As if the ambiance wasn't enough our food was amazing and my Husband said it was the best piece of prime rib he had ever eaten. Thank you Chart House we will for sure be back!
