I can't recommend this restaurant due to the fact that the hostesses really need some training on how to manage tables and guests, not to mention people skills! We had a reservation for 7:45pm and arrived 25 minutes early to enjoy a cocktail at the bar. They said our table wouldn't be ready until closer to our reservation time. No biggie! We enjoyed some wine at the bar and as 7:45 came and went so asked the hostess about our table. We got the deer in the headlight look??? Oh, your next to be seated. Then shortly after that we noticed a couple that came in after us was seated before we were. After asking the hostess again oh your next on the list, another couple was seated, they were there maybe 10 minutes. At this point it was after 8pm and we were ready to leave when our table became available. Upon sitting there were multiple tables for two available. I asked, why did we have to wait so long if these are available? Oh, these just became available. Really!! I asked what's the point of making a reservation if your not going to honor them. These table just came open was the line we received three times. LOL! Right!! Then to top it off they sat a party of nine who just walked in the door! Poor management to allow this to happen and obviously no proper training. Not what you would expect from a so called high end restaurant!! We weren't the only couple that complained that night either so this must be a normal occurrence and none of this had any effect on how these two hostesses approached solving these issues. We won't be back for dinner. Happy Hour is okay! Great bartenders!!

I have been many times to the Melbourne, FL restaurant and have always been pleased - until this past Sunday. I brought a friend to celebrate her birthday and have a Sunday brunch. We we seated immediately (I had a reservation) and it looked like it was going to be another wonderful Sunday brunch. There was no potato nor pasta salad at the salad bar this time and my poached eggs on the Traditional Eggs Benedict were overcooked. Also, our waitress, who has provided excellent service in the past, brought the check but neglected to ask if we wanted coffee or dessert. She appeared to be upset because my guest and I wanted coffee and she had to redo the bill. I will continue to visit the Chart House because out of many times I have been there, this is the only time I have been disappointed. Hopefully, this was just a one-off and things will be better next time.

The service was very good, we got there for a late dinner and one of their waiters cleared a table for us to sit by the windows facing the ocean. The place was full with a lot of friendly conversations going on, The menu offered a number of interesting alternatives. The food was good and well prepared.

The service was very good. Some of what we ordered was up to the level of the price, however overall at that price point I would expect a bit higher quality. We ordered the crab stuffed flounder and New York strip.For the price charged they should have used fresh crab in the stuffing. The steak was a bit tough and lacked flavor. The facility itself while nicely decorated is far to noisy for an intimate dining experience.

As usual, the food and decor were great. It's always a treat to eat at Chart House. I love that there is still caviar at the salad bar!
Two things detracted from our experience; our waiter was not very attentive, he left our oyster plates on the table for 10-15 minutes after we finished. He never came back by to check if we needed anything else one our entrees arried, and when removing dishes from the table, left a plate of shrimp tails sit on the table - these stayed until we paid the bill.
Also, it was very noisy! We were celebrating Valentine's Day, but couldn't really carry on a conversation with each other.

The food was good. When I made the reservation for my husbands birthday I specifically requested a window table. They seated us on the back row. When I told them that I had ask that they reserve us a table by the window I was told by the hostess that “everyone wants a window seat”. That’s all she said and walked away rudely.
We were disappointed because that was our main reason for going there.

Certainly over priced! 19.50 for a salad bar REALLY! Everything was a la carte, no entree on the menu was less than 26.00 an that was farmed salmon. I made a reservation for 6:00 and did not get seated until 6:40. You should consider these things.

We have always enjoyed eating at Chart House, this time was not good. There were four guests, and three of us had poor quality food. The chicken Paneed was over cooked as was the red snapper. The prime rib was perfect. Very disappointing!

I made a reservation for 6:45 on a Sunday night. I got there at 6:35. They said they were running behind. We decided to go to the bar to get a drink. For the first 10 minutes, the bartenders would not even acknowledge our presence. After about 15 minutes we finally got someone to wait on us. They didn’t know how to make our drinks so we need waited another five minutes so she could figure out how to make the drink. When we finally got our drinks our table was ready. We were sat close to 7:10. No apologies from the hostess just a dirty look when we asked how much longer. We were finally sat and given menus. Our waiter came to see that he would be waiting on us got us water and disappeared. We had to ask another waiter to get him so that we could order. Once the food was delivered, we again did not see him. A second time we needed to ask someone to get our waiter so that we could ask a question. I have been to many Chart House restaurants throughout the country. This one by far was the most disappointing. Although the food was pretty good, I don’t know if I would return anytime soon. They were either understaffed or very disorganized.

Ordered steak marsala. I have never experienced steak fried crunchy crispy, with approx. six very thin slivers of mushrooms in oil. It was bad! Baked potato was luke warm, would not melt butter or sour cream. However the key lime pie was good to rid the taste and smell of the steak marsala. It has been a while since my last visit, I do not plan on another visit for many years to come.

I will share only the facts of my personal experience in hopes that it will benefit your restaurant in the future. My wife and I brought and old friend from Philadelphia to the Chart House for dinner since our previous experiences at the Philadelphia Chart House were very good. My wife and our friend were very happy with their grouper dinners and we were all pleased with the salad bar. I ordered the Prime Rib Dinner and the quality of the meat was very poor. I ordered my meat medium rare, and it was very difficult to cut to say the least. Although I paid for my dinner I did not eat it. The lady at the table behind us told the waiter that her prime rib simply not acceptable and the waiter apologized and said he would send over the manager. I don't know if this was an isolated incident, but I believe when you pay almost $40.00 for a piece of meat, it should be of good quality.

We went for brunch and were very disappointed. Poor service, sad salad bar with many empty bowls and the brunch menu was limited. They charged $26 for a Denver omelette with packaged fried potatoes. Bacon extra! We never got the coffee we ordered even though there were less than ten tables occupied. You are better off going to a local diner.
