I will Never return to this establishment. Literally almost ruined my partners birthday. The food was all wrong, the service was extremely slow. The decorations are out-dated and have stains on the chairs. When we asked for one of our dishes to be taken back cause it wasn’t what the waiter described, instead of trying to accommodate he immediately bought over the manager who was no help at all and kept trying to pressure us to stick with the meal that we weren’t happy with. We went without water for 20mins at a time and it over an hour for our entree to come out and was infuriating when it was wrong.
Please do not waste your time or money!! Reserves were at 8:15 didn’t even see an entree until 9:40.....

Started going to Chart House while visiting Florida. Have always been impressed with the atmosphere, food, and great service. On this most recent visit, The waiter was outstanding. It was the first visit by my guest. He was equally impressed. Looking forward to another visit soon.

Service for restaurant that was about 20% full was questionable at best -there seem to be no real management in place. Sad for a great location - the worst Chart House I have ever dined at. Would not recommend this particular location for dinner

Food was AMAZING!!! Views are beautiful and should definitely be considered for a nice dining experience!! The specialty drinks were absolutely terrible, but maybe their wine selection is better :) I would dine here again just for the food, i suggest spending extra for their vegetable sides we got the mushrooms and they were the best we’ve ever had!! the waitress was rude and rushing us, our water cups were empty frequently, she seemed very displeased to be there but I’m sure everyone has an off day. The front hostess was a delight and so nice!! I wouldn’t write this place off completely but I was very very disappointed in the cocktails unfortunately :(

Due to a pandemic I understanding the spaced out environment. But me & my fiancé could perhaps been seated better part of the experience of the Chart House is the view totally understandable that everyone won’t have the best view but it definitely was a option for a better one being it was only no more then 5/6 couples

Came here with my husband for our first Valentine’s Day married. We had to have a card on file and $50 deposit just for this reservation.

The food was great - however, the service was absolutely TERRIBLE. Our waitress made it obvious that she would’ve rather been anywhere else with her lack of enthusiasm. The whole experience felt rushed - Waitress asked us for our entree at the same time that she asked us for appetizer order. There was no water upon being seated either. This feeling of our waitress being unenthusiastic was also magnified by witnessing other couples interacting with their enthusiastic waitresses.

Had MUCH higher expectations for Chart House. I highly doubt we’ll be back.

It started with a bug floating in our drink. The amount of food and quality for the price was not worth it at all. I ordered twin lobster tails they I had to send back to the kitchen because they were mush. Our server didn’t even make an effort to compensate the issue. Just not the experience we expected

Overall experience was good. I was slightly nervous given the horrible reviews I’ve seen in regard to service but we had no issues with service. Raquel was our waitresss and she did a fantastic job. Overall the food was pretty good not amazing for a higher end restaraunt. I regularly go to the steakhouse through out the casinos in Atlantic City not sure if that sets the bar higher or not but for having extremely similar prices I feel it’s fair to hold chart house to that bar. For a lobster bisque the soup was a little watery in regard to flavor not consistency but decent overall. Entrees were pretty good filet mingon and twin petite lobster tails. Steak was great lobster tails were ok. The mashed potatoes and asparagus were good as well. So far not so bad. Then we get to dessert. Biggest let down of the night was the chocolate lava cake. It was over cooked and there was no “lava” in the cake. The coloring of the cake alone gave it away even before cutting into it. Not sure how this plate was able to leave the kitchen to be honest not sure if it was rushed and over looked or what but unacceptable. I could’ve bought a microwaveable cake from a super market and it would’ve been much better. We cut into the cake and it was solid a tad darker color wise in the middle but it was a large overcooked brownie. Our waitress was very nice and I didn’t wanna spoil dinner so I kept quite until I left. My date mentioned something about it on the way out as well and she never complains.

Kyle was our waiter and he was phenomenal. Great personality and made us comfortable. The group sales manager was there and came by and checked on us and informed us about the membership program which I quickly joined. Had a really really great time. Chart House is still top of the line!!!

Food was delicious- nice size portions. The calamari appetizer was amazing. I ordered prime rib and the creamed spinach. My husband got baked stuffed shrimp. Everything was very good and we took half our food and dessert home because we were so stuffed. I had the monarch margarita and it was great. Our server, Tasha, was excellent.
