    Food and service was great but very very slow. Definitely could tell they were understaffed but should not take 35 minutes to get drinks. The first 2 drinks we originally ordered they were out of. But it took 20 minutes after we ordered the first round to be told that they were out of it then we ordered wine which they were also out of. Overall food and everything was good but the unstaffed service was definitely showing.

    Unfortunately, the service was so poor I was ultimately disappointed in the amount of money I had to pay as there was an automatic 18% gratuity added to my bill. Service unfriendly, waited a looong time for our food. When food do arrive it was cold, and didn’t bring correct orders and then tried (and did even though I said no several times) to give additional food when I politely declined. The food was average, the views beautiful. I would not recommend again. The manager didn’t listen and only took my drink off of our bill for the poor service he clearly recognized. It truly was a terrible experience.

    I love salmon - except at this restaurant. It was flat out bad. Father’s Day so expectedly busy. Entree took over an hour from the time of order. Service went downhill from there. Very poor value for money. Plan to never return.

    I returned to this restaurant after several years because the last time the food was great even though there were issues with the service. This time it was a bit disappointing because we were forced to use the Father’s Day menu and forced to pay 18% tip for four people or more which we had only four people. If the service was good I wouldn’t mind paying that percentage but it was very poor. Our server came and took our drink and appetizer order And ask us if we are ready to order from the Father’s Day menu at which point we asked whether or not the Father’s Day menu was mandatory. Her manager then came back and told us that it was mandatory at which point she came back and asked us if she should still put in our drink and appetizer orders in at this point it was half an hour from the time that we sat and we still didn’t even receive a cup of water. We already made the trip so I would we change our mind but now we’re aggravated because we don’t have anything to drink and our appetizer owner wasn’t even put in. Then we order our meals which takes so much time to get and took our dessert to go because it had been two hours at that point and we were ready to leave. Then we get home and I had one of the desserts and then got sick overnight I think there was something wrong with the desert. We will never go back to the chart house.

    Had Father's Day dinner at the Chart House. Everything was really good, been here a few times in the past, so I knew what to expect. Place was more crowded than usual but that's understandable, since it's a big holiday. I'll mention the inconveniences but not deal breakers me. The red wine I've chosen by the glass was out. The only one left of the cabs were higher priced. Not a big deal. Ordered 2 steaks, we both wanted medium rare, one was spot on. The other was Well Done. Manager came and apologized so had to wait for a new steak order. Additionally the red wine wasn't delivered so I asked for that. End of our meal I gave my Landry Members card, along with CC, thinking it would speed things up. We've been there over 2.5 hours! Everything came back however the $25 Landry credit wasn't applied to the current tab. And the entire food receipt wasn't provided, just the 2 CC where just signatures needed, so nothing itemized. Rather than ask, I just signed it and left. Check was $236, added $48 tips, final tally $284. Said TY & good bye to our waitress in the way out, no response back. Apparently there was an issue with the table behind us, her mood was not in a good place. Overall I get the holiday chaos, I would visit Chart House. But those little things add up from being an exceptional experience to just MEH, for an almost $300 tab, on a table for 2 people.

    Reserved a table for Father's Day at the last minute. It turned out to be a good idea. Service was great and the food was brought to the table very timely. The meal presentation was great and the taste didn't disappoint. I recommend the calamari...it was awesome. I will be definitely visiting Chart House Restaurant again.

    Food was good. Waitress was sweet. Ambience could be better in the inside. Was sat by the kitchen area and the rugs were pretty dirty. Also kind frustrating that the appetizers served for happy hour downstairs you can't get in the actual restaurant

    The food quality was good, but poorly cooked. Med. rare was well done and the other very rare (very red in the middle). Understaffed. Bar was beyond ineffient. Ladies bathroom had 1 stall with t.p. Front door looked like it hadn't been cleaned for a long time. The place badly needs updating. Food was tasty, but not worth what we paid. Our server was very pleasant, but needed help. They did the best they could.

    I was sat next to the kitchen initially and requested to move to a nearby table that was not impacted as much by the hustle and bustle of the preparers and the noise they generated, I was told by the hostess that the move I requested would take me out of the area assigned to our server, frankly I didn't care who would be our server I just wanted a different table and I had to argue with this hostess (to no avail) until I personally had to find the manager who could help with this problem. All this was happening in front of other patrons who I am sure did not appreciate the distraction. This place is dying on it's feet and should be shut down.

    Had some doubts after reading some reviews honestly. But my experience was great. Party of 4, we were seated right on time for our reservation. Had an outstanding server, Jane. Jane was personable and friendly, and made multiple stops at our table. Our food was delish, we did not wait a long time to get our appetizers, and our entrees came just as we finished our appetizers and salads. Entrees were all hot, fresh, tasty. My shrimp cocktail was superb. Spinach salad made tableside was also tasty. My filet mignon was cooked just the way I asked. Great view of the river. Not noisy. I have all good things to say. Yes the interior needs a little maintenance but its still a nice place to eat on the water. I will eat there again. Especially liked their free parking lot and you can stroll on Penns Landing after dinner. Thank you to the manager who stopped at our table to make sure all was good also. I'll be back!

    That was my first and last time eating at this place. This was just one above Outback Steakhouse. The server was awesome- this guy in the black suit / manager type didn’t even say have a good night at the end wtf ? But no worries- I won’t be back- nor will I send any there. I always thought this place was top notch- but I guess I should have ate there back in the 90’s when people raved about them and my pallet wasn’t used to good food. This was subpar!
