5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2015 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Our seating was in full view of the docks which added to the experience. Our server, Leslie, was at the top of his game! Attentive but not a pest and his commentary was well received, he really added to the experience. Our lunch was well presented with the fish sandwiches lightly breaded and with just enough skinny fries. We also... More

At 7:30pm on a Thursday evening, both the ceasar salad and ice berg lettuce bowls sat empty for 45 minutes. The spring mix and spinach was wilted and looked slimy. No worries, we built salads without the base (the greens). Both myself and my travel companion were ill all night - mild stomach cramping and lose bowel movements. Just horrible... More

I have eaten at this restaurant many times. I think is a good place to celebrate any special event. The food is delicious, and the service is good.

I have eaten at many Chart Houses. I think it is an elegant romantic restaurant. I enjoy the sala bar and think the seafood is excellent. We had great service. I think the view was excellent. We had a business dinner with a few co workers and it was very nice. This is also a great place for a date.

This was our first trip to the Chart House. The food was wonderful. The ambiance was very nice and the view are amazing. In my opinion this is a great place for couples, business or a group of friends to enjoy good wine and great food. I wouldn't recommend it for kids.

My family had heard from a friend that this place was really good for Thanksgiving dinner. It was not up to our expectations. We got the salad bar but it was kind of small and their cesear salad was tasteless. It was extremely loud and crowded they must have packed more tables in for the holiday. Some people in our...

Had a delicious meal after getting engaged, unfortunately nothing was memorable about the meal although it was very good. Amazing view of the riverfront!

Took the family for annual Christmas meal at Chart House. Menu is great. Kids love choices. Prices are pretty good. Crowd is good. View is very nice. In general a great place to enjoy a meal and the river/marina are beautiful. I recommend the seafood choices vs the beef. Crab cakes are vg. Shrimp dishes are all vg.

We popped into this restaurant to get a quick lunch & were very impressed. The service was efficient, the views of the river impressive & the quality of the food was good too. There was a buzz about the place & there was a mix of customers - young / old / families - all seeming to be having a... More
