“Pretentious”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We used to like to eat here when we visited the coast, but this time everything had changed. No longer the comfortable casual atmosphere we expected, but linen tablecloths and napkins and a high priced menu.
Food was only average and not worth the high price that was charged. Won't eat there again.

“Top Quality Food in a Relaxed Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Delicious meals chef prepared and professionally served. We can attest to their red fish and to their scallops - excellent. Business casual attire with dining inside the "chartroom" or on the large outside deck overlooking the bay.$$$$

“Never again!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

This was our second time around at Chartroom. The first time we were served raw shrimp. This time around was no better. Beware of the redfish with jalapeño sauce-small portions and poorly prepared. Wilted lettuce on BLT. Had to request our beverages several times. Baby carrots were on our meal and not served. Just all around inferior dining experience. We have been coming to Key Allegro over 40 years and own property here, but won't come back to this dive!

I am really sorry about your experience. We serve only fresh seafood from the gulf, never frozen unlike most restaurants in the Rockport area, so therefore we are trying to keep our cost competitive to other local restaurants serving frozen seafood. Our fresh fish portions run anywhere between 6 - 8 ounces. Our vegetables and produce are also fresh and come to us daily, so I doubt that the lettuce on your BLT was wilted. It is a shame that you had to refer to our restaurant as a dive. I am sure that you would admit that we have the best atmosphere is the surrounding area. I have eaten at the restaurants you give a higher rating to and I can assure you they do not compare in the quality of food we have available, I would be happy to speak with you If you could provide me with your contact information, or please call to the restaurant and ask for the General Manager. I look forward to your call.

“Amazing food, service and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is definitely worth your stop. The food was outstanding, you can tell the chef truly cares about the quality of his dishes. The service was quick and the server proved she knew the menu well when I asked her a few questions about how different meals were prepared. Most of the tables are on a covered deck where you can enjoy watching boats coming in and out of the harbor. We will most definitely come back on our next trip!

“smoking allowed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

The owners are smokers and allow smoking inside the restaurant. IWe asked the manager to have the couple seated next to us to put out their cigarettes while we were eating. He did not comply. The food is good but we won't go back.

I am sorry that happened. We have an open air restaurant and the owner has designated a small section inside and the patio to be smoking. I am sure that was not the owner that refused to put out his cigarette. It was more than likely a patron and we have no control of their actions.
