great birthday celebration despite snowy conditions... it looked like snow did not impact reservations; there was nice crowd... Blake was an excellent server, the food and wine selection was great... overall excellent experience.

The serve was nice and very helpful with the menu since we were new. It took a rather long time to get our soda water. As for the food, I got the filet and that was pretty good. Had some flavor but wasn’t over the top amazing. My boyfriend had the Mac Nut Mahi it was alright, would recommend sticking to a steak if you eat here.

As a local, and dinning on Thanksgiving we found our dinner arrived cold. Knowing that it was a very busy night we understand the circumstance. Yes we will return again!!

We spent Thanksgiving out for the first time. It was great at the Chart House. Much better than stressing about cooking. The food was great and the snow outside made it a very cozy and special evening.

Thanksgiving dinner. Two of our entrees had to go back for redo as they were cold. Biggest issue was the food was all quite bland. Could have found as good or better in most any cafe. Not a premium experience to equal the premium price.

It was for my husband's birthday. They were very sweet and put a "happy birthday " sentence on the menu. And provided a hand-signed card and a free dessert.

Very nice "old school" dinner. If you are an aficionado of the way it used to be then the Chart House is your place. Certainly not old or run down the restaurant keeps it's charm with great food and a wonderful setting. It even has a complete salad bar keeping true to it's heritage. So nice to see an institution stick to it's roots. Very nice dinner!

We went here for a Bachelor party / Birthday dinner and for the most part everything about this restaurant was great! We only had one issue with one steak being slightly under cooked but other than that the service and food was great and they even gave us a free desert for the table.

Great restaurant; however, did not appreciate the sales pitch to spend $25 to join the club. When we turned this down with the waiter, the "sales guy" came to provide the pitch. Landry's has come along way from their first restaurant in Houston - visited it then in the 1980s. However, I prefer businesses that do not require me to pay to join, have better benefits, and do not pester me when I am on vacation!

Chart House used to be the premier restaurant for wonderful prime rib. Unfortunately it has fallen to the standards you get with choice beef in supermarkets nowadays. Mine was generally tough and I couldn’t chew much of it. The salad bar was outstanding. My wife enjoyed her shrimp and soup.

Our table was ready 15 minutes after our reservation time of 6:00pm, but the nominal delay was worth the wait - It was a well-positioned booth.

If we could give a 6-star review for Matty, our server, we would have. Matty engaged in light conversation in the beginning and explained the offerings well. For our salads, he surprised us with a ramiken filled with warm bacon vinaigrette dressing, should we wish to try something different. Neither my wife or I had ever tried a warm dressing on a cold salad, but we also appreciated Matty's effort and decided to give it a try. It was a hit and the ramiken was taken away dry!

Throughout the dinner, Matty was always in the right place at the right time.

I have always ordered a seafood selection on prior visits and decided to try something different - I ordered the prime rib and was not disappointed. My wife ordered a NY steak and it was cooked exactly to her preference. Both meals were excellent.

What an amazing dinner!!! From the out of this world calamari (we love calamari and we all agreed this was the best EVER!!!) to the dinners (filet mignon was like butter, melting in our mouth, the scallops likewise were perfection, and the asparagus side was amazing, we only had one leftover and we had to bring it home!!! and garlic mashed potatoes were SO good, we ate every bite!!) to the attentive, responsive, amusing and knowledgeable wait staff, it was a FABULOUS night, thank you!!! Oh, and of course, the world class view, which is why we picked it, but the dinner and service actually outshone the view, which is really saying something!!!!

Blake was an excellent Server. She is outstanding, I told her my husband was lactose intolerant and he needed his fish grilled in olive oil. He then ordered a baked potato with sour cream. Blake came back to the table to make sure that was OK because he is lactose intolerant. Blake is very thorough and we appreciated her thoughtfulness.

We were seated by the hostess at our reservation time. We sat for 10 minutes and no one acknowledged us. Not a look our way, no filling our water glasses, not even a wait staff saying they would be right with us. We felt this was a sign of how the service was going to go for the evening and we left. We were told our waiter would be Blake. Don’t know if this was a fluke or happens all the time. We won’t be back to find out.
