    Eat at the chart house regularly. Forgot to request my usual waiter who is great. So because of that we were seated in my opinion not one of the most desirable seats and a sub par waiter! My usual waiter came up to and greeted us and asked why the hostess didn’t seat us in his section ( to be honest she profiled me and sat us in the not so good section) and asked if we wanted to move but since the sub par already took our drink orders I said no it’s ok. So placed our appetizer order and within a few moments it was at our table then he came over took our dinner order. We added salad bar to our meals got up made our salads sat back down then within seconds they came out with our dinners. So we’re sitting there with appetizers which we barely touched our salads which we haven’t even really started and our dinner all in front of us at the same time. Never ever had that problem in the past so wasn’t it expecting it now but yet here we are. On top of that he almost disappeared completely! Empty drinks and when I was finally able to order a new drink it took forever and I had to remind him. It wasn’t even that busy when we were there. They need to teach this server basic skills and to pace the meal delivery nobody wants all that in your face when it should be a nice evenly paced enjoyable spaced out arrival of food. Note to self never ever forget to request my usual waiter

    My gal and I had a wonderful dinner/date evening here. The manager made our evening helping out with our wine selection since they were out of the nickel nickel I ordered. He checked on us often and did a great job. Love to see fresh stuffed blue cheese olives instead of the bottled ones as they were horrible.

    Went to the Charthouse for Easter lunch. After we were seated No one came to our table for awhile, not even to serve us water. I had to ask another waiter who our waiter was. He came back & told me no one was assigned to my table that he would take care of us. We ordered prime rib for party of two. It was a nice serving but the prime rib was very bland. We kept putting salt & pepper on it for flavoring. The other sides were tasty & dessert was delicious. Our waiter was great for taking care of us.

    Even with a reservation (since it’s a school night for the kids) you end up waiting well past your reservation time. This has been the case in our past three visits. Tonight after 20 minutes passed I asked how much longer it would be, and at first they said I had no reservation. Then they eventually found it, and it screamed to me that they just forgot about us. In all our visits tonight was my first time also having issues with the food. I ordered a medium rare prime rib (as one does) and what came out was extremely rare. So much so that the server even commented. I did ask that if this was medium rare to the cook, i’d like it medium. When it came back it was more like medium well to well. I was highly disappointed. Suppose I’ll be thinking twice before committing to dinner here next time.

    We had an amazing experience celebrating our 9th year anniversary. I requested a table with a view and they were able to accommodate us. The food was amazing… We had oysters, Caesar salad, filet mignon and sea bass. Excellent drinks as well. And of course, the lava cake was on point. Love this restaurant and we look forward to coming here again!

    Food was sub par, not the usual. Lobster was described as 7 ounce but was about 4 ounces. The Mac nut Mahi, which I always order bc it’s so good, wasn’t this time. It’s supposed to be CRUSTED but the Mac nut was a scoop on top of the fish, the peanut sauce didn’t have any flavor.

    Our prime rib dinner was delicious! We had the baked potato (instead of mashed) and creamed spinach with our prime rib. We ordered the smallest prime rib cut and it was large! It was done perfectly medium rare. The first course of clam chowder was very good. The mini lava cake for dessert was so good! Garrett was our waiter and he did an excellent job! Just one suggestion for the manager: please dim the lights! We have been to the Chart House many times — this was the first time the lighting was brighter than it should have been.

    From the moment we arrived we were treated to very hospitable service. We were taken to a window seat as requested and my wife was kindly wished a happy birthday. Our server, Genevieve was prompt in helping us and guided our decisions in ordering. She had excellent menu knowledge and a very appealing manner in her service. Jimmy the manager was an exemplary host and made us feel like the most special people in the joint as he took much time talking to us and offering advice on what might make our short stay in town extra special. Two professionals. for sure.
