Food was great as always. I like the option of chart your own course. Our server was Eddie and he did a great job. We only come there 3-4 times a year but it’s always a great experience

Waitress was great! Another staff member out a dirty ised plate on top of our booth area and a dirty fork fell in my seat. And another staff member bussing tabled didn’t wipe down teo tables and put another clean tablecloth over the table, so that was disturbing. Other than that, great food and service.

Wonderful experience! Our waiter was top notch, the monitor trio was super fun and unique, and the value for the meal was excellent and we all enjoyed our meals. The lava cake for dessert was divine and was enough for all 4 of us!

We took a nice bottle of Rombauer Zin, there is a $25 corkage fee ( pretty typical cost these days ). The view of the sunset on Lake a Tahoe was beautiful. Food was good but pricey for the amount served. For example, the coconut shrimp appetizer is on a big plate with a rice wrapper backdrop with the shrimp placed on puffed rice noodles-looks big but it’s mostly filler. Desert was a crème brûlée trio, 2 of the 3 custards were not quite firm but the flavor was good. Overall, the food was good. The ambiance is really makes it great.

Excellent food! Staff was friendly. Lights could be dimmed a little more by the old salad bar area to give it more of a cozy feeling but I’d highly recommend this restaurant for great appetizers and food.

Great evening with friends. Food was very good, however a couple of our side items were ok but not outstanding. The lobster bisque was good. We will go back next time we are in town.

I enjoyed the triple shrimp trio and my friend enjoyed the salmon. However, the prime rib dinners that my husband and his friend ordered were very disappointing since Chart House is supposed to be known for its prime rib. I have had much better prime rib at this Chart House in the past. (My husband and his friend were too polite to mention the poor quality of meat to the server. ) The kids meals were very good and the chocolate lava cakes were delicious.

The service was excellent; our server was very friendly and happy to answer any questions we had about the menu. We also had a drink at the bar before we sat at our table and the bar staff were awesome too. The food arrived quickly and most dishes were good but the lobster tail we ordered was very, very overcooked. It was chewy and lacked flavour, which was disappointing. The sides it came with were also a bit overcooked and pretty unimaginative. However, the ahi tuna dishes we ordered were excellent.

Overall we had a good experience and and I would definitely recommend Chart House to others. Amazing location, a great atmosphere, and wonderful service. Just a shame about the quality of some of the dishes on the menu.

Appetizers were very good. Coconut shrimp and ahi tuna. Really enjoyed the tuna and the wonton salad that was under the thin, though tasty tuna. Caesar salad was just okay and lettuce a bit wilty. Ordered prime rib. Done nicely and tender but not much flavor. Mashed potato ok. A few veggies on the side would be a good add.

We were seated at our reserved time and were impressed with the beautiful view of Lake Tahoe and surrounding mountains. The waitress and staff were attentive and helpful throughout the evening. The food was very good and served in a timely manner. We truly enjoyed the evening and plan to dine again at the Chart House on our next trip to South Lake Tahoe.

Beautiful restaurant and the service was great. With the exception of the shrimp cocktail which was exceptional, the food was a disappointment. Ahi was one big thick Ahi Steak. Had trouble cutting thru it. Ot also didn t have much flavor. Not at all what I expected. I thought it would be thinly sliced., seared, and served with Wasabi. Ginger, and asian style vegetables. Instead it was sauted and seeved with roasted brussel sprouts, potatoes, and carrots. My husband couldn't eat his dinner at all. Lobster Bisque was bitter, and the steak he ordered medium, was almost raw. They took it back to cook the steak, and when they brought it back everything else was cold. My chardonnay was served in a warm glass and not chilled. He ordered Baileys on the Rocks and they served a little Baileys with a whole bunch of ice on top. He had to drink thru theelted ice to taste any Baileys. The staff was very apologizetic. It was New Years Day and the place was packed. We look forward to going back on a not so crowded day and giving them a second chance.

Probably one of our top dining experiences. Our server Jeff was so friendly and gave us amazing service. The food & cocktails was delicious and didn’t break the bank which we were most shocked about. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the lake and we were seated so that we were right next to the window overlooking the sunset.
