“Great meals all around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We went to the Chart House with a party of four. Three of us ordered fish (tuna, scallops, catfish) and one ordered a filet. Everything was right on the mark - cooked as ordered and delicious. The fried green tomatoes we had as a starter were also excellent, and Claudia's service was outstanding.

We will definitely be back!

“A Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We had the early bird dining with a large group and found the food well prepared and service prompt and efficient. The chowder is excellent as was the cod. Others in our party had the salmon and it was also excellent although they would have liked a vegetable along with the potato that it came with.

“We'll go back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

It was just after 4pm when we stopped in for a drink and appetizer. The decor and layout of the restaurant and bar area was a welcome surprise, and the service we received from bartender Jena was exceptional.

We liked the feel of the place and will definitely return!

“As Yankees, we would have taken dinner in the sun on the deck with a great view of Skull Creek.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

We visit our Atlantic Ocean Front Marriott Condo 5-7 times per year, and always dine at The Chart House and Old Fort Pub. It seems that nearly 35 restaurants are offering “Early Bird” Specials in the “Off Season.”

As Yankees, we would have taken dinner in the sun on the deck with a great view of Skull Creek.

The Chart House has some excellent specials at about $18.00. We rank The Chart House as a top three Hilton Head Island restaurant. Our server, Jeff is superb, and we met and talked with the manager and chef. The Chart House is first rate.

The Chart House is over the top with Low Country shrimp and grits; however we elected a great prime rib. We generally do not order beef in a fish house.

Apparently The Chart House is “off the charts” for families, and we never see a family table visit The Chart House regardless of the season.

The Chart House is upscale, white table-cloth, excellent bar and wine menu. In our view the only Chart House that we like better is south of Newport Beach (not the one in Newport Beach, CA.) This The Chart House is at Dana Point.

The tariff is appropriate for the fare at the Chart House!

“Delicious Food, Impeccable Presentation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Just dined with large group (about 60 people). Food was delicious, presentation impeccable, and service seamless. How did they manage that with a group of 60? The gazpacho is very different here--thick but smooth, not chunky, full flavored but only mildly spicy. The serving size is generous. Prime rib came out just as ordered--medium rare. The creme brulee made a fabulous desert. Some of the folks in our group mentioned that they like to come for Happy Hour cocktails and appetizers while the sun sets over the Intercoastal waterway. The early bird specials offer a rather formal dining experience but at a casual dining price.
