Dining on the water

Great atmosphere, great food! It's a very happy and colorful place. The outside seating is comfortable and relaxing.

We were just in Hilton Head for two weeks and had dinner at the Chart House twice. They have the best Happy Hour on the island, with excellent appetizers and special drink prices in the bar. We also had dinner in the dining room later in our stay, and the service and food was perfect. My husband's strip steak was... More

I don't write reviews often and every one I have written has been "outstanding" - until this one. We live in the area and of all the great Hilton Head restaurants, the Chart House has been our favorite restaurant for over five years - great food, great service, great ambiance and a wonderful waterfront setting. Three of those four positives... More

My family went to lunch here on the recommendation of the lady at the visitor's center. In my opinion they must pay well for her recommendation. We were a party of 6 representing 4 generations. The service was slow and very inadequate....one member of our party did not get his first glass of beverage until after the entree was half... More

What a disappointment. I should have looked at the reviews of this place before allowing my dad to make the reservation. The service was some of the worst we have had in a long time. The table was not completely set and at one point my dad was taking dishes and silverware off other empty tables. The bus boys were... More

Our resort concierge recommended and set up this sunset dinner for us. We had some of the best Mahi I have ever eaten. The service was top notch and the sunset view was unmatched.

I can't believe this is the same Chart House from Savannah and Atlanta. The decor reminded me of an old Carnival cruise ship. The place was empty on a Friday night, no less. Then we got the cheese board and charcuterie plate. Old dried up cheese and thick slices of pepperoni. We sent that back immediately. Then the entrees. ...... More

The happy hour food was the best we have had. Fried green tomatoes and blackened fish tacos were terrific. They only had one person working the bar the two times we were there and the poor guy was overwhelmed. He was extremely efficient ,but they were clearly understaffed. That being said, it was still great, just be ready to wait... More

The food is good, the happy hour menu is dynamite, and the views are the best on the island. But the bartenders and wait staff turn every visit into a trip on the wild side. The ones you liked last time won't be there this time and the new ones are still at least two full seasons away from understanding... More
