My husband has brought clients to this restaurant for years and always enjoyed it. I'm not certain if we came at a bad time, what might have been off that particular day....what might have happened.. He insisted that this was where we would have brunch and we drove in from Hilton Head this day.

Upon arrival, you walk down 3 flights of stairs to the hostess stand; unless you enter from River Street. The restaurant is pretty and kept clean; with brightly colored art on the walls.

Our server brought us our wine and drinks and we ordered the hummus tray and fried green tomatoes as appetizers. The hummus was cold - right out of the refrigerator, and it seemed that the pita bread was in the fridge with it. It was cold and tough and the hummus didn't have much of a taste. It's so much better without a chill on it. The fried green tomatoes were a frozen product; but they added small shrimp and a sauce that made them good.

My beet salad with grilled chicken added was really good. Our guest's crab cake sandwich was mediocre - he ate only about half of it. My husband enjoyed his Caesar Salad. Nothing remarkable and I assume that this restaurant caters more to tourist trade than to locals.

We did get to see a couple of giant container boats coming into the harbor from the balcony of the restaurant. That was a sight.

We dine here at least once a month with friends. After starting off with happy hour at the bar, we then migrate upstairs to a great dinner. Dinners are always a culinary treat and the staff is very cordial and attentive. One of our favorite places to dine.

My friend was looking forward to having trout but after she ordered it the server returned to our table to inform her that they were out of the trout.

I felt service was slow and not as attentive as past experiences.

We have dined at the Chart House in Annapolis Maryland Several times and Loved the place. The Chart House in Savannah was a different experience. The Staff was exceptional, courteous to a fault and they made us feel like we were regulars instead of 1st timers. It was my wife's birthday and they gave her a Card which made her cry. We have dined on many special occasions and she or myself have never received a card! Our server Ilke, was a beautiful young lady who was very gracious and accommodating. I would without a doubt recommend visiting the Chart House Restaurant if ever in Savannah.

We were riding around Savannah Sunday evening looking for a place to eat after traveling from South Florida. We spotted Chart House and drove up but couldn't park on the upper level. We found a cobblestone road leading down towards the river and found a parking space. Getting into the Chart House was complicated by the cobble stones since my partner needs a walker to get around. We managed with some difficulty.

The dinner was worth the effort. She had the stuffed flounder and I chose the pecan crusted trout. Both were excellent dishes.

We went to the Chart House as part of our 20th Anniversary vacation to Savannah. They had a card for us, rolled our menus and gave to us, had the best service and had really delicious food. Was a great experience!!

Great wine. Excellent salad. Sub-standard salmon (fishy taste and over salted). No effort attempted for compensation. Overall mediocre.

So disappointed. Made a reservation for 7:45 and were told when we arrived on time that the reservations are not set in stone and that there would be a 10 or 15 minute wait. After 35 minutes at the bar with very bad drinks, I asked again about our table and we were seated almost an hour after our reservation time. The food was very good, but certainly not worth cutting our earlier plans short to get to the restaurant on time only to wait that long. We live here and won’t be back. There are too many other great restaurants for that kind of service!

They placed us by the window but there was water dripping on our heads immediately. We told the server if we could move but he was so rude and impatient he didn’t even take serious our first request. The servers name was Joshua, I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt and not get upset but when I tried to ask him again to move us and he said sir I will be right with you I got fed up and just moved myself. I asked for the manager and requested another server. She was much better but for the most part the night was really ruined, you think that because we asked for another server the manager would at least check up on us to make sure we were ok, we didn’t see the manager again!! The food was just ok but nothing special or mind blowing, I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to anybody we only came because we were staying at the mansion at Forsyth and they told us this was a great restaurant. My experience didn’t meet anywhere near my expectations. Even though I had a horrible experience I gave a 25% tip on a $120 dinner only because the lady server tried her best to give me and my wife a great customer service experience.

Two people in my party ordered the filet mignon and when they came to the table they were both cold. The steaks were sent back and when they came back the second time they were both then overdone and the mashed potatoes on the plate were cold. They also put the steaks back on the wrong plates. We spoke with a manager who in my opinion did not handle the situation properly and was really not apologetic. I will not recommend this restaurant ever, I do not feel like me party and I were treated properly.

Over priced, over crowded tourist trap.

30 minutes after placing my order, waitress informed me they were out of steak (7:00pm on a Saturday).

45 minutes later my entree arrived.

Service was poor, food mediocre, outdoor seating was extremely noisy with tables placed almost on top of each other. Plan for on spending at least $150.00 for 2 as the entrees start at $40 +.

Oh by the way, parking anywhere within in a reasonable walk of this restaurant ranges between $12 - $40 for valet parking. The restaurant does not offer valet parking.

I have eaten at number of other Chart House Restaurants and this one was the most disappointing by far.

Took forever to get service. Ordered dinner 20 minutes later came back and said oh we are out of the trout. Forgot our creamed spinach then got the bill and both the trout and spinach were on the bill. Asked for it to be removed from the bill took 5 times for the bill to get straight. Food had little flavor!

For being one of the highest rated restaurants here I was very shocked by the service/ the ambiance. Our server was very nice however he would disappear from view for 15 min at a time. It took 30 min for our oysters to come out which we ordered right when we sat down. Another server was eating what looked like Pizza and on her phone in the service bar behind our table. It was all quite unsettling. The food itself was delicious. But the service seemed quite hodgepodge. I hope next time we visit the level of service matches the food quality.

Food was terrific. My husband ordered the prime rib and thought it was the best he has had! Our appetizer was delicious. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly. The hot molten lava chocolate cake was very good and enough for 2 to share. Our waitress, megan, was awesome!

To be completely honest did not have high expectations,considering it is part of a chain. However, we were delightfully surprised. The Alaskan King crab was very fresh . We also enjoyed one of the special dishes that were featured and it was wonderful. The only downside was every staff person really wanted everyone to sign up for the Landry’s dining club!

Had dinner. Was seated near a window which was nice but was directly under the only speaker playing music on the second floor. It was very loud and not music which you would expect for a nice restaurant. When I mentioned how loud it was to the waitress, she said that they could turn it down—but I don’t believe they ever did. Ruined the meal and ambiance. I should have asked for another table, but we were already seated. Hate to pay good money and have dinner ruined by loud ridiculous music—not the pleasant kinds you hear in most restaurants. Food was pretty good. We had the filet and mashed potatoes. Filet was a little over cooked (can be hard to get it right) but the mashed potatoes were just plain cold. Have been here before with better results. This night was not good.
