The patio was very well set up, but I got at least 40 insect bites on my ankles, which made it less than enjoyable. I suggest you get some insect zappers or other deterrants.
Until you do we will not be back, it was too uncomfortable.

The view out to the pass is enjoyable. Tables are spaced out comfortably for social distancing.

Our waiter, David, was right on the ball. He was there when we needed something and our order was 100% correct and prompt.
The manager, Shannon, checked in several time to make sure our dining experience was perfect. He was sincere in his concern about an issue we had on a previous visit.
Thanks to both. It was a nice relaxing evening.

Worst service. Served lobster tails that were bad, then waited a long time (3 of the other people at table finished meals) then were served bad tails again! Manager seemed more interested in busing tables instead of providing good customer service to maintain the integrity of the restaurant. When asked for the managers contact information, she said she didn’t have any cards to provide. We have gone to this location many times over the years and this was the first worst experience. We own our small business in Ohio and take pride to the fact of providing good customer service to our customers.

We seem to go to the Chart House for special occasions since the food and service are always top notch. In this time of Covid we weren't sure what to expect but found the indoor dining to be spaced in a way that made us feel safe. As all of us know service in the time of Covid is always a bit stretched and this was the case the night we went.

We were greeted and given our own personal menus commemorating our anniversary. The seafood was suburb. Cooked to perfection and served at the correct temperatures.

The whole experience was most enjoyable and a welcomed safe night out during these Covid times.

Fuimos a celebrar el cumpleaños de mi esposo. Ya habíamos visitado el restaurant en Melbourne y nos encanto, por eso escogimos este lugar para nuestra cena especial y quedamos encantados, como siempre.
Excelente atención, buena comida y buenos cocktales.

When you go to a Chart House you know you get reasonable good food and service. In our visit to Chart House that was the case. We sat outside in the patio due to the current virus situation. We noticed that in the dining room there was not much separation between the tables and the people dining.

We went there for our anniversary. Melissa was our waitress and was AMAZING!! All of the food except one of my husband’s twin lobster tails was amazing. I only wish their amazing salad bar could be open- but Covid ruined another good thing:) My only other issue was bread crumbs on my asparagus- not that it tasted bad but had no idea they would be there

Overall, very slow/poor service. Sat at the table for over 20 minutes before someone even brought water to our table and that was after we had to ask. Repeatedly had to ask for basic items, and some were never delivered. Definitely not even close to a higher end dinning experience.

Food was under cooked, even after sending the filet back it came back out raw (blue) in the middle. Wait staff was rude to start. Reservation was for 7:30pm and didn’t get seated until 8:15 and food didn’t make it out until after 9:00pm.

We had not dined at Chart House in quite awhile. Overall not a good experience. Server was nice but was not well trained. Ordered the 3 course seafood menu. Specifically requested the Mahi not be overcooked and dried out. The kitchen prep time was very slow. They sent my soup course and mussels out at the same time. My husband’s soup and appetizer arrived at about the same time as well. The mussels were overly salty and the mahi was overcooked and dried out.
Would not return anytime soon. The view is not worth the mediocre food. The table next to us also complained about the delay in receiving their food and that the preparation was not as described on the menu. Apparently our experience was not unusual.

Enjoyed a special occasion birthday dinner at this restaurant which we’ve enjoyed for the past four years. However this time we were disappointed in the food and special touches we’ve enjoyed in the past. The twin lobster tails looked more like two oversized shrimp, and the stuffed shrimp was cold and just mediocre. In past birthday dinners a personalized menu was provided which apparently has fallen to the wayside. This may be a function of the ups and downs of a crazy year, but we won’t be going back for sometime. Our waiter was outstanding and he is one of the best we’ve ever.

Full restaurant, 5 servers equals a disaster. Took forever and when food came to us or others, it was wrong! Crab legs that weren’t cut, appetizers missing chips that go with since they were out. Terrible for any establishment!

Social distancing was iffy, some staff didn't know how to wear masks appropriately. Been here many, many times; this time crab legs were not cracked for us and had to send back bc they are impossible to crack ourselves. Service was a bit off, I think they took too many reservations and not enough staff. Manager did respond right away. Views gorgeous and food still outstanding!

Vent dripping water on the table and my family members. Did not have baked potatoes. Steaks not cooked correctly. Waiter basically ignored my table through most of the evening. Many mistakes made on the entrees/orders and many items had to be sent back to kitchen. Beverages came out at different times...3 drinks came out then 2 more came out almost 5 minutes later, then more came out later...??? We sat for over 20 minutes at the end waiting to order desserts and coffee but waiter never came back. Waiter bragged that the baked potato that was ordered (but that they didn't have) was taken off the bill as if that was a favor to us???? Asparagus was horrible and so were other items. So, overall, service was horrible, food was not good, drinks were not the best, and we had moldy vent water dripping on our head (even after you all moved the tables it was still dripping on my nephew). Talked to the manager after the experience and nothing was done. Way over priced for this kind of experience...really seems as if this restaurant has gone way down hill.
