Possibly the best dining experience of my life! Shrimp beignets were incredible. Seafood pot pie amazing, lava cake insane. Service was awesome, a little slow due to Covid but such nice folks!!

Food was excellent, however service needs improvement. The delays between the different courses was outrageous. Never even filled our water after the first glass was provided.

Pros: The food was very good, drinks creative and tasty, and the views wonderful.
Cons: The service was horrible. It took two hours between ordering our entree until it was served. During that time our server stopped by twice: one time to ask if we wanted another drink and again to ask us what we ordered. When I complained to the manager, she lied to us saying the delay was due to our order going to another table (I checked with the other table and that is not what happened). When I called the manager on the wrong table lie, she then said that it was the fault of our server.

It's been quite some time since I've been here. I came because of high quality of service and fine dining experience they used to have. We were stuck between 2 really noisy tables and no one ever addressed the noise level. Our food came out wrong and took an excessively time to receive. When my husband told the manager his steak was cooked too rare she suggested he take it home and cook it longer. We were shocked with the response. She did remove 13.00 from our bill because a waitress spilled water and ice on my legs but she didnt seem concerned with our concerns. We were extremely disappointed and quite surprised considering this establishment's reputation.

We had a reservation @ 845.. I don’t know if they were short staffed but it took 30minutes to see our waitress every time . We never got any water at the table wanted more drinks but we knew it would take our waitress 30min to see us. On this night service was not great.

I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere nice for her birthday. I Googled different places in Penns Landing due to the nice views and location. I found Chart House. I booked my reservation online. Super quick and easy. I called two days prior to the reservation to ask about what they do for birthdays and such and I asked about seating. I would say to reserve your spot in advance and then call about seating. We were able to be seated by the window to look out to the water. It was super nice and when the sun sets, it is so beautiful.

I really enjoyed the food and ambiance. We had a 7:30 reservation and weren't seated until 9. They were extremely short but why couldn't they be courteous enough and say hey here is a few dollars off your bill for the wait we apologize but are short staffed. Customer service goes a long way and for the price it should be exceptional. That's all I want to say. Thank you

The restaurant is outdated and dirty. The service was not at the level of a Landry Group restaurant. My steak was over cooked and they forgot my sides which arrived when I was almost done with my steak. Great location and potencial but it’s was not the experience I expected.

We went to the Chart House to celebrate my mother's birthday. The look and ambience of the restaurant were superb! Donna, our waitress, was very sweet and attentive. The food was amazing! We especially loved the crispy banana split! The chocolate peanut butter swirl ice cream was sublime! They could sell those crispy bananas alone! The appetizers were amazing as well. We had a minor issue with my entree and the management fixed it quickly and gave me my dessert for free. I would recommend the Chart House to everyone I know.

Waitress was absolutely fabulous! Food was very good too. My husband and I were there at least 35 years ago and not one thing has changed on the inside. Sadly this place is a desperate need of an updated. Wall paper peeling off the walls, dirty looking furnishings. Took us 20 minutes to get out of the parking lot due to the idiots working the lot Nextdoor at the Spirit of Philadephia and the rude patrons going in the out driveway.

Food was good, area was quiet and scenery was nice. Service wasn’t ideal and felt rushed and rude from the server. Should be fired and work at McDonald’s. 7/10 overall.

It was our 11 year wedding anniversary and we wanted to try this restaurant. We were happy we did it was great we walked in at the time of our reservation and was seated at a table in an area that we chose in a quick manner. Our server was very knowledgeable on the food and took our orders and got our food out to us quick. The food was delicious

I love the Chart House but it is in serious need of some updating. The carpet felt sticky under my shoes and was noticeably old and worn. The food was great but it was seriously understaffed. The service was as good as the servers could make it. We had a very nice time regardless and I will go back I just hope things are better next time.

This was my first time visiting but will not be the last. Everything from soup to dessert was delicious. Service was a bit slower but attributing that to the pandemic. The view and the ambiance were perfect for the evening.

We haves dined there many times in the past. While we feel our last few experiences were declining. This visit was very lackluster. The food was good , not great as one would expect for fine dining. The service wasn’t bad. It just seemed like our server didn’t want to be there and wasn’t friendly. We may not choose the chart house again in the future.
