I had the prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes. My stomach had a problem with the garlic potatoes and for me to go back i would want an alternative to the GARLIC potatoes!

Excellent drinks sat outside with beautiful views of the inlet and homes. Happy hour Angus sliders great, entrees of shrimp trio and prime rib done perfectly with a desert of chocolate lava cake. Great price and excellent food. There is a early bird menu we missed for a deal if one likes.

The views are fantastic, especially if you can sit outside or anywhere along the windows. We were able to make a reservation online which was convenient. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. My husband got the prime rib, and I got the mahi-mahi with vegetable couscous which I really liked for the uniqueness. The food was all very good but not as hot as I expected when delivered except the side of mushrooms which were fantastic!

If they could figure out how to raise the bar on their not bad but mostly inconsistent service, they would be a much better restaurant. When the hostess had to come to my table 8min after being seated to tell me a waitperson would be with me before too much longer I knew I was in for a slow service night. Polite enough, just too short staffed to be able to provide attentive service to match their price point. As for the food, it’s why I go. The chef consistently delivers.

We were visiting Sarasota and I was celebrating a belated birthday.
The restaurant is beautiful as were the surroundings. We had a table by the window and loved seeing two dolphins and a power surfer playing in the water.
I’m giving a 4 star rating rather than a 5 star because I was disappointed that although swordfish was on the menu it was not offered.
Our waiter was attentive and very pleasant.

The quality of their food has declined over the past 2 years. One of our party to four ordered 6 oysters on the half-shell. Only 5 had oysters and very small. Could not taste crabmeat in the stuffed shrimp. The prime rib had no flavor. Lobster bisque was hot and delicious. We drove down from Clearwater Beach and Brandon to honor our father's passing one year ago. We will not make the trip again.

Food was good although my husband wanted to order prime rib and it had apparently been over cooked so not available other than med well or more ...he passed on that.

Our server was not attentive..we had to pour our own bottle of wine and he never cleared any dishes and seldom came back to check on us. When they showed up with our entrées and our salad plates were still in front of us, they tried to hand it to me and I said please clear this first. You should not have to do this at a high-end restaurant. While the food was good and the view was spectacular the service was way below par

My wife and I went for happy hour but decided to sit outside instead. I had the lobster bisque and the coconut crispy shrimp. Both were outstanding. My wife had the artichoke dip. the service was also outstanding. Jen did a great job in attending to our needs. Even though we did not get the happy hour prices the view more than make up for that. Love going to this Chart House.

Once we were seated, at 8:17, for our 8pm reservation things got better.
Appetizer was very good, as was the food &
Service. Overall a nice experience, but will probably look to other places
For next meal.

Staff not really on top of it. Server not in control of the experience. The place was supposed to be sold out but was borderline empty the entire night.

Had a nice seat with a view however.

The poor service essentially ruined our meal. My companion’s appetizer came about 20 minutes before our drinks, and my meal never arrived. However, I understand that the server was new and that the restaurant had recently reopened and was understaffed. The General Manager was very understanding (as I believe l was) and accommodating. He offered to comp my meal and, since it had never been served, had it boxed to go.

Excellent shrimp scallop combo, great atmosphere, great service from an experienced wait staff. We noticed that he was very patient with the whining pinheads at the next table...i guess they forgot about covid!

We had the worst experience at Chart House on Longboat Key. We had a reservation at 7:30 and were seated at 9:30. Our view was a dirty table for the entire meal. My salad was so saturated with dressing, I couldn’t eat it. Our food came 45 minutes after our salads. We have had great experiences at Chart House at the CIncinnati/No KY location and expected the same here. Disappointment. We will never plan to visit this location again. Horrible experience.

I thought the food to be very mediocre. I ordered the Alaskan King Crab and at $59 I do expect it to be exceptional. It was served cold as was the drawn butter. It could have been cracked better. I worked hard for the money. The baked potato was also cold and not sufficiently cooked. The server took it back, microwaved it. Still not cooked but hot. Almost half was edible. My son ordered the coconut shrimp. Huge plate most of which was plate decor. The shrimps for such an entree were surprisingly small. The service was ok. The restaurant has a lovely view but if you also want good food then I would recommend going elsewhere. Dinner for 2 with one cocktail, one appetizer, 2 dinners, 2 desserts came in at $150 plus tip.

The Chart House is our favorite dining selection for special occasions or whenever we want to treat ourselves. The food is consistently exceptional and the service is great. Our out-of-town friends specifically request dining at the Chart House whenever they visit. The wait staff are extremely knowledgeable and competent. Our overall dining experience was great. My only suggestion to improve our experience would be to slow the pace of the courses a bit. While I realize it was a busy evening, we felt a bit rushed. But everything else was perfect.

Visiting Long Boat Key on vacation. Beautiful location with great views, but very poorly managed restaurant. Service of both drinks and food was extremely slow. Watching tables around us showed similar aggravating experiences. Saw the manager have to visit multiple separate parties to deal with complaint issues. Would not recommend, much less return until major issues addressed.

Server was excellent. Disappointing start however. We reserved outside dining for 7 and confirmed that via phone the day before. Hostess was not particularly understanding of our request and basically said outside was on a first come first serve basis and 7 could not be seated outside. She was rather insistent and did call a manager. We explained our request and he was able to accommodate our original reservation. Hostess did not seem happy and was not particularly friendly to us as she walked by seating other patrons. Too bad about her attitude.

We were celebrating a birthday. Table ready as promised with a beautiful view. We ordered from wine list but not available. Alternative choice just ok. Baked stuffed shrimp came out partially undercooked and not properly deveined. Diner opted for alternative meal which took an additional 15-20 minutes giving the other diners ample time to finish their meals. Manager came over apologetic but in the end, he should have been proactive in comping the 2 meals for that diner. No discount given. Shame on them. Would have been a 5 star night but the managers failure is unacceptable. Hopefully you will experience a better dinner.
