This is our third year going to the chart house for Thanksgiving dinner. This was the best experience of all. The food and service was great but the cherry on top was the manager Ried McAllister. He was super professional and friendly and relaxed. We purposely arrived early to have drinks in the bar only to find the bar service closed. He remedied this and eventually brought us to a beautiful corner window table. Great night!

We enjoyed our Thanksgiving meal immensely. The portions were generous and the flavor was fabulous. Our meal server was terrific. My only complaint is that when we had a short wait at the bar, the bartender didn’t acknowledge us. We were ready to order drinks. So, the bartender missed out on a great tip. Other than thatvour evening, along with the river view was fabulous.

Thanksgiving at the Chart House was relaxing and very enjoyable. The turkey dinner was delicious. We had a table at a window and could watch the boats travel by. Service was excellent as usual. Didn't have to plan, shop, cook or clean up. I'd do this again in a heartbeat!

We went for Thanksgiving meal and all had the turkey special. EVERYTHING was cold - it started with the soup which we returned to be heated, our meal then arrived before our soup and sadly it was also room temp - yuck who wants cool mashed potatoes or stuffing? We didn’t - so I asked for some hot gravy on the side (figured it would warm my food and then the soup arrived after our food and they just set it in the table) the gravy arrived and sadly it was also NOT even warm THEN the lava cake that was required to be ordered in advance as they said they make it fresh was you guessed it also just barely warm.. sad and disappointed - we won’t return

This was our second time to the Chart House after about 4 years, and it was just as amazing as we remember. The food was AMAZING. There is not a bad option on the menu. Our waitress was absolutely incredible as well. We didn't catch her name, but she had brown curly hair and was wearing it up. She was extremely cheerful and so pleasant. Our experience was incredible and we will definitely be back!

We had been at Chart House about 3 weeks prior to this visit. For this Saturday evening visit, it appeared that extra tables had been added from a previous week night visit. This felt crowded and was certainly noisier. We will stick to a mid-week reservation from now on.

We were greeted warmly by the hostess; and the experience went south from there. After enjoying our before dinner drinks the service began to slow down. It took too long for our bottle of wine to be delivered. Salads arrived in reasonable time; but entrees were very, very slow coming; and the prime rib and mashed potatoes were cold. Complaining to the manager only produced an "I'm sorry" and "Is there anything else I can do for you". A complimentary dessert would have been a nice offering. When summoned a second time the manager did comp the prime rib dinner; but only when see realized we weren't going away so easily.

I've had much better experiences at the Chart House in the past.

The only negative thing I have to say is being a party of two seated adjacent to two larger parties of 8 or more doesn't lend itself to much quiet conversation but other than that things were great!

Food was wonderful. In addition to the regular menu they had a Halloween prie fixe menu. We chose the prix fix salmon and prime rib entrees. All good. Drinks are good pours. Quiet wonderful atmosphere. Our server Ashley was exceptional
We can always depend on the Chart House for a dining experience that is worth the money

There was not enough Staff to handle the number of guests . In a quality restaurant with high prices my expectation is that service would be extraordinary. It was not . After we finished our meal we waited 25 minutes for our waiter to come to the table to bag up our uneaten entree. Then another 15 minutes to bring the check and a dessert that we had ordered for takeout . I don’t hold the waiter responsible, he had too many guests to wait on and he was overwhelmed. The restaurant accepted reservations beyond the number of staff available . I considered this an error by Management . We have come to the Chart House many times and felt the service was extraordinary but tonight was an exception .

Slow service even at an early hour. Chopped salad, requested with no cucumbers, was loaded with them. Both of the mains were very good, prime rib and coconut shrimp (even though there was barely a hint of coconut in the batter) and the shrimp dish was beautifully presented. No anticipation of a return.

We were celebrating an anniversary. We expected more of an upscale atmosphere and ambience. We were disappointed to see how laid-back and not as relaxing of an experience it ended up being. Food and service were excellent. However for the price of the meals in a night out would’ve preferred more quiet and privacy.

Food, gracious server and wonderful view were all top notch. Very nice place and convenient parking. Service was not fast, but well worth the wait! And we loved how they let us take our time. Nice Saturday night dining experience and visit with our friends.

With our group of 10 we had a wonderful view of the Cincinnati skyline & wonderful service from the minute we opened the door to enter. We felt attended to & appreciated. Most ordered fish & some split larger meals but all were satisfied with the end result. From seafood pasta to beet salad & lobster bisque to mahi with the delicious peanut sauce. We managed to share a few desserts too. Noise was a bit difficult with the long table but we would definitely return.

I haven’t dine at the Chart House in more than 13 years. So, when my friend came in from Fort Wayne, Indiana, to visit, I thought the restaurant was a great way to show off what Northern Kentucky had to offer.

The manager seated us at table 41 where we had a wonderful view of the riverfront, looking into the riverfront of Cincinnati, Ohio.
It was a fantastic evening and a great place to take visitors to dine.
