We went for Christmas Eve dinner and being greeted by 2 elves (complete with ears) was a super great touch, until you went inside to the hostess stand.
My only negative for this review is the hostess team. Rude, arrogant, could careless if they helped you.

Serving staff--- A+ and we had a party of 8 so rather large to get an A+ with.
Food- Off the charts! A+

We will be back- as a matter fact we are going again for new year day dinner- just would be nice to be warmly met for your special event.

One fish entree was inedible-dry and overcooked. Waiter offered more sauce as a fix; we needed a redone entree. Table was under a blowing vent and we were freezing. Just the worst experience ever at this restaurant

Loved this place, we sat at the bar for a drink before dinner, we requested a table by the windows overlooking the water which we received. I was surprised since this was Christmas Eve. The food was fabulous, I had the scallops and my husband the prime rib, we were both very happy with our meals.

 (Oklahoma City)·Dined on December 23, 2017

We were at the chart house to celebrate our daughter’s college graduation. As usual, we were looking forward to the experience. Our reservations were at 6:15 PM and we were seated quickly. Our waiter gave us ample opportunity to look at the menu and make our decisions . Immediately, we had trouble communicating with each other and with our waiter due to the noise level in the restaurant. It was very crowded and we were seated close to the bar which was also very crowded. This was my major complaint about the evening. The waiter wasn’t quite as attentive as we are used to there but I feel that might have been because the restaurant was so busy. Overall the food was very good - my lobster tail and potatoes were excellent, our son-in-law had an excellent serving of prime rib, and my husband and our daughter got the sword fish which was good not great. Next time we come will be on a less busy evening if possible.

Waitress forgot the put in the order for our lava cake. Had to wait forever. They did take it off the bill but bills had to be corrected several times. A “not normal” night there. Something had the waitress very confused.

Very nice evening meal, we arriver in time for the early menu which had a nice choice of seafood and meats. I also included the salad bar which was first class. Very clean and fresh.
Prices are high but you get what you pay for. Great service...

The restaurant was very cold - we were all bundled up in sweaters and the A/C was running full blast. We went for Sunday brunch which had a very limited menu and prices were extremely high. Had Eggs Benedict (egg whites were runny) which included Canadian bacon, English muffin and home fries. That plus a cup of coffee was $30 plus tax plus tip which meant almost a $40 brunch. Can get much better brunch for 1/4 of the price elsewhere.

Went for a birthday dinner. Food and service were great. Only problem was we were seated next to two tables with about 10-12 people at them each on a normal quiet Wednesday night. Very noisy. Hard to hear within our party of 4. Especially paying $240 for a classy dinner. Now I've always like this spot for b-days and dates, but we were just in a terrible cornered spot. The large groups that came in right after us were in t-shirts, sandels and basketball shorts. Obviously a work dinner for them. Not too comfy this night. For some reason I thought this place was supposed to be a little more upscale then that.

Several menu items were unavailable on multiple occasions. We weren’t told that until 15 minutes after ordering.
They served pasta with a gluten free order (not gluten free pasta.)
An order of a salad entree never came out. After all the other guests were served, she was told to go make her own salad at the salad bar (which she had wanted to avoid.)

We went tothe Chart House in Melbourne for a colleague's retiremnet celebration.
One of our guests were in a wheel chair so the staff gave us a round table in the corner that was perfect for us.
There was a last minute addition to our six guests and the staff made the needed accommodations.
The food was cooked perfectly and the staff was pleasent also.

Thanksgiving 2017. Made a reservation 3 weeks out; the Charterhouse even called to confirm we’d be there 3 days before. Get there and we are informed that seating will be at least an hour past our reservations. They were not doing anything for people waiting; not even handing out water. We had to stand outside because the inside was packed and it turns out only one hostess of three was coming out to call parties. Another patron inside had to tell the 25 or so people outside that they were jumping past reservations because people outside were not claiming them. We were one of those people.

Finally seated at 8 pm for a 6:45 reservation and it took 5 mins for our sever to even come to the table; another 10-12 mins past that to get drinks. Both of us had the thanksgiving plate which took over a half hour to come and the food was cold and dry. The pie was literally still frozen when served for desert.

All this and we weren’t even offered any compensation for the late reservation and cold food. Not even an apology for over booking.

We were there on Thanksgiving. Reservations were obviously overbooked causing reserved seating to be delayed 30-35 minutes. However, once we were seated, we were taken very good care of by Jennifer. The food, as always, was excellent. We were fortunate enough to have a waterfront/window table and enjoyed the view. Will definitely return.

It was Thanksgiving so you would expect a wait. The wait was about 20 minutes beyond the reservation time. However, the service, food and atmosphere was very good. I would definitely come back. I selected this location sight unseen with a recommendation from a local friend. I drove from St Augustine to have dinner with family at this restaurant and I was not disappointed.

We went for Thanksgiving Dinner. We ordered the turkey and fixings plate. The turkey was processed and dry, although they said it was real turkey. It tasted like a processed turkey roll. I did not eat it. The stuffing was over-salted, I did not eat it. The pumpkin pie had a horrible crust, and the pie itself did not have flavor. I was very disappointed in the meal as a whole. The good? the view out the lovely windows of the water was great! The service was so/so.
