Our server, Alex Ducomb, was phenomenal. For that reason alone, I would go again, but - I have been the The Chart House maybe 10 times over 25 years, and the food this time was FAR superior than I'd ever had there. They are doing something right!

Absolutely loved this location and everything it had to offer. Riverfront views which can been seen from any seat. Service was a 10, Natalia was amazing with suggestions and follow up. Pace was perfect! Cannot wait to go back.

The server was great!!! Meanwhile the lady at the front desk was very very rude. I asked her a simple question to see if she could put two tables together and she got really rude And ignorant not sure if I wanna come back Because of that. But over all the food was great and our Waiter was very nice and friendly

Good food, great view. I was most impressed that the manager made it a point to greet and check-in with all of his guests. This appeared genuine and not part of a required corporate policy.

when ordering a martini I think the glass should be closer to full than empty. The server agreed and had them refill but management seemed unconcerned. As a person who frequently eats here I was more than a little upset. Was not concerned with price but perception of getting a full drink.

Waiter was extremely nice. We had a great table by the water. View was wonderful. No one was at the receptionist desk when we arrived and I had to track down a water to find someone. But that was a minor issue. I would have definitely given this place a higher rating except for the fact that I requested my filet be cooked to medium and it was over cooked to the point of well done. Very disappointing considering the prices.

My first experience going to Chart house was amazing. I recommend this spot for a date night because the view is very nice and I love the atmosphere there. My waiter was so friendly, professional, and funny. The food there is to die for. Everything tastes so good. I'm gonna come back again. I love this place !

Very nice dinner to celebrate a birthday. Food was very good and the view on the water was great. Not the cheapest restaurant but they definitely give you a lot of food to make up for it. The decor is a little outdated and service a touch slow (we waited longer than usual to get our entrees) but overall a very good dining experience.

I choose the chart house because I wanted to switch it up from our usual restaurants Amada, Buddakan, Del Friscos.... what an incredible disappointment. The decor is very dated and run down. There must have been some type of leak somewhere near the bar because they kept running a shop vacuum. My wife oredered a filet well done which came out like a charred hockey puck which we sent back, only to have the manager come out and talk down to us explaining that “they don’t cook their steaks like outback” nothing against outback but I’ve eaten in some of the best steak houses in the country so I don’t know what that comment was about. Over all my dinner was ok the only highlight of the whole meal was the chocolate lava cake. My advice save your money and eat elsewhere

Bartender was great - she made great martinis and hand stuffed the blue cheese olives for me! The server and service was great, but certain things lacked finesse, eg wine glasses should have been changed without question; used silverware was not removed and replaced; table was not cleared of crumbs, etc. Food was tasty and served at an appropriate temperature. The one thing that requires serious attention is the ladies room! Water on the floor (puddles!), stalls were dirty and one was out of order, trash pail was overflowing, one sink did not work and backed up with water - simply biohazard conditions for a classy restaurant! In addition, my mother-in-law is elderly and almost slipped on the floor! I did tell the hostesses, but their attitude and response was deplorable and unprofessional: ie “we’ve been down there many times to check on it”.....certainly did not look that way to us since we visited the ladies room multiple times during dinner. Unfortunately I did not take this up with the manager since I was so annoyed at that point.

We had a very enjoyable dinner. The prime rib was exactly as my wife likes I. I had the grouper and it was perfect cook. Our friend had the king salmon with Baja topping and raved about it. Nice to watch the activity on the river. Much nicer and better food than the Chart House in Baltimore we visited some years ago. We were a little hesitant to come here because of our experience in Balt. We love it here.
