Arrived on time for 7:00 pm reservation & seated immediately. We made reservation after getting email regarding date night promo for Landry select members. At approximately 8:00 pm , server notified us that kitchen was backed up & our order would be delayed further. At 8:20 pm, server said kitchen was still backed up & it would be at least an additional 15 minutes before our entrees would be served. At this point, we elected to cut our losses & canceled our order. Will not be going back to chart house. Too many other good restaurants in our area to put up with this type of substandard service.

We began the evening sitting at the bar and enjoyed the house wine and ambiance. We were seated on time at a table next to a window with an excellent view of the water. Our meal was delicious and our server was knowledgeable,pleasant, and efficient. Would return another time.

I very much enjoy the Chart House - Melbourne. The food and service was excellent. My only concern was the noise level. It was extremely loud which took away from the enjoyable of the evening with my friends. We could not hear each other unless we were speaking loudly.

My daughter and I are from Iowa and we were recommended to eat at The Charter House for a special “Daddy/Daughter Date Night “. Our waiter John made my daughter feel like a princess and made both our nights a night to remember!!! The food was amazing and so was the evening!!! Thank you Charter House.

We will take our friends and relatives to this establishment for many years we hope. Our waiter was a very nice gentleman as well as the valets. Food was some of the best we have had down here in Florida. It rivals some of our favorites in St. Louis.

Beautiful view. Great salad bar. Very good prime rib. We only wish that somehow the noise level could be less. We need earplugs - or a communication device between the two of us so we can hear each other, sitting right next to each other.

The atmosphere at Chart House is wonderful with views of the Indian River and the occasional dolphin and many boats. The service was adequate but we would have liked more time between dishes. Also, the shrimp cocktail was served without the dry ice which definitely maked the dish less visually appealing. We wish the server would have notified us of the lack of the dry ice when we ordered the appetizer. Orders for our entrees were from the Early Bird Specials. Both of us had salmon dishes and both enjoyed the taste and presentation. The salad bar was fresh and had many choices. I noticed however that the radishes were no longer avalaible. Overall, our experience was good and we would recomemend to famiily and friends.

Arrived when the doors opened at 11 Sunday for the Sunday brunch and were seated at a prime window table. Our server was perfectly attentive and was very helpful figuring out how to capture my birthday reward even though I did not have my reward card with me and the phone number on my account was no longer valid. (I updated my account information as soon as I got home.) Shared a delicious mango crab stack with my guests for an appetizer. They all enjoyed the spicy Bloody Marys too. I devoured my favorite caviar, chopped egg and caper combination from the salad bar before delving into a delicious omelette. Always a relaxed, quiet, wonderful way to spend some quality time with friends on a Sunday.

Been here several times. This time the service was a bit spotty, even observed wait staff arguing over table assignments based on number of diners. Shared an ordered of coconut shrimp to start. It came with a variety of dipping sauces, some sweet, some not. Yummy. The salmon main course was a little dry in spots, and covered with too much ground mustard buerre blanc sauce. Once some sauce removed, it was quite tasty and it helped with the dryness. Came with fingerling potatoes. Uninspired. I don't think they were even seasoned with salt and pepper. Hubby said the Key West mahi was excellent.

Salad bar was less than up to par and it was early in the evening. Lettuce was scarce, no one serving anything behind salad bar, items missing and what was left was not appealing. Spent $150 on soup, appetizer, salad bar and drinks for 2. A bit overpriced for the quality of food that was served. We have spent other special occasions in the past there and in our opinion, this location has gone drastically downhill ! We more than likely will NOT be returning!

Always good food and service. We’ve been to Chart House several times and seems the noise level gets louder and louder. We sat near the bar and could not even have a conversation. Normally, I don’t mind the bar area of restaurants but the noise level was horrible. Very disappointed in this visit. Will not be back unless seated furtherest from bar.

Every time we go it is a special experience. This time was especially good because we received a double savings. We had earned points on our Chart House membership card, plus March is my birthday month so we got a second discount which altogether halved our bill. Plus I received a free birthday desert. All this and a fine view of the Indian River.

Second visit in a few weeks’ time that service was marginal at best. This particular night, my visiting daughter and I arrived an hour and a half before closing (with a reservation). Our waiter served okay, but his demeanor was horrible. No doubt we infringed on his “hoping-to-leave-early” night. He was the most unfriendly waiter I’ve had in a long time (anywhere) and made us feel completely uncomfortable. Smiles go a long way, especially in the service industry. I know from experience. We will think twice about returning for a while. :(
