Great Happy Hour

Although the dinner menu is rather expensive they surprisingly had a fantastic happy hour with several drink and food items. Cocktails were 4 bucks and isn tacos(2) If I recall were seven dollars and quite good Mahi Mahi. There were other items also. Probably only available in the bar. I had a... read more

Predictable food. Not anything done extremely well but consistently good quality with friendly menu. I will say that we had very good service and it is one of the few decent restaurants on Cannery Row. Prices in line with menu.

The restaurant has an ideal location right on the water. You'll want a table near the window. The food is expensive. The bar is small. Looked like a lot of people were celebrating something - so maybe this place is meant for people looking for a

Came here for a business function of 15 people and they did a great job taking care of us. We ordered apps for the table and they were all fantastic. The calamari, hummus, mango avocado, all awesome. I ordered the NY and it was one of the best steaks I have had in recent memory! Great drinks and great food... More

What a lovely evening at the Chart House! We started with fried asparagus. Delicious!!! My husband had a salad from the salad bar and I had a Caesar salad. The Caesar was big and honestly the best one I've had in years. For my entree I had the blue cheese filet mignon, which came with garlic mashed potatoes. It was... More

I ate dinner here with family on Independence Day. The fantastic bay views meant we could watch many firework displays across the bay. The food in this restaurant is absolutely outstanding; by far one of the best meals I have ever had. The menu is vast with a range of seafood, meat and veggie options. As a group of 6... More

Dinner started with a quick happy hour drink at the bar. Good well priced Chardonnay. But disappointed with our table as it was at the back of the restaurant but it was going dark so not really a problem. 6 oysters and the trio of soups were rated so so and excellent respectively. The lobster bisque was delicious. The oysters... More

We planned a post wedding dinner for 14 people. We arrived 15 minutes early on a week day and the management and staff were totally indifferent. Crammed us into a very small bar area which should have been the scene for 'bar rescue'. The team may have made very fine individual drinks, they certainly didn't function as a team for... More
