We've been to Chart House twice on this visit to Florida. Two five-star ratings. First, we tried the Happy Hour. It's great. Inexpensive drinks and outstanding bar bites. I ordered the fish tacos and the three-hummus plate. My wife ordered the calamari. Everything was well...More

I used to love this restaurant, but since they completed their renovations; it's average, at best. Their once "famous" salad bar, is now, half the size, and double the price! Service is average, due over booking.
