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.

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.

It was my Parent's anniversary. We arrived a little early and were seated right away. The hostess wished my parents a happy anniversary and so did the server who promised a free dessert in honor of them. Food came out quickly, was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious!
Wonderful experience all the way around...my parents were very pleased!

Great restaurant with some of the best seafood selections in the South Lake Tahoe area. If you want a great view, 2nd to none in the Tahoe basin, great selection of seafood and preparation type then CH is for you. Price is comparable for and top notch restaurant and their food quality and preparation are fantastic. Great happy hour as well !

The location is really lovely. We were fortunate to get a window table as we booked for dinner at 4.30pm just as they were opening. We enjoyed the sunset views over the mountains and although the lake is somewhat obscured by the forest we did get some substantial lake glimpses though the trees. The food is tasty although overpriced. My halibut main dish was $40+ and when I asked to substitute the coconut rice for a baked potato they added a $3 surcharge. It felt so greedy for them to charge that extra fee as many upmarket restaurants give a complimentary option of either rice, mashed potato or baked potato. Also the waiter was trying so hard to upsell appetisers and dessert to us when all we really wanted to eat was a main course. The waiter asked us several times making lots of suggestions to add dishes to our meal and it became pretty annoying. The portions are a good size and its actually hard to eat 3 courses.

Food and Service were excellent. Celebrated 40th anniversary and wanted a special night. Wish we had known about the Mud pie before ordering the Lava cake but the desserts were spectacular! Thank you!

Overall excellent. Ordered king crab but lacked proper tools to extract meat. Would recommend that they supply seafood scissors instead of slitting tool. Danger of jabbing hand while using.

I've been to the Chart House in the past with great service and food. However, this trip was different. There were 7 of us with 6 having phenomenal food and one not receiving what she requested the first or second time so didn't have dinner. The service was not to the level we've received in the past. Items requested were never received. Several colleagues mentioned they would not return due to the service even though they enjoyed their meal.

Party of two promptly seated upon arrival at a nice window table into a full dining room. The window tables are preferred as they view the whole valley. Chart House chain performed very well vs nearby high-dollar casino restaurants, however its easy to overspend at this spot with multiple menu add-on opportunities. Service was good and the food was quite good. Drinks, basic entrees, no salad bar, no dessert + tip = $130.
