The Chart House on Longboat Key is an excellent place to have a romantic dinner watch the sunset over the gulf and enjoy the evening breeze.

the building and restaurant are beautiful - but the food was just average. I can't remember the last time I went to a restaurant with a salad bar! It was actually very good. Service was spotty and food was forgettable

Can you imagine, $52.00 for Alaskan King Crab legs- which were excellent, by the way. And they had to vacuum around our table before we were done with our meal.

This is my second review on The Chart House. Our first experience was wonderful, but i was a bit apprehensive still with all the mediocre reviews on here. We had a party of 10, and had an incredible meal and a great time. Our food was delicious, and the service excellent. A great holiday meal with no cooking or dishes. The view was still incredible :)
