“Great views, uneven service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

No matter where you sit,there are great views here of the water. Friday nights you can see sailboats coming in. If you can't sit at window, ask for a banquet booth- more romantic. Food is pricey but very good. Salad bar has caviar and whipped cream. Did not like the fact that our waitress played only to the man and ignored me, especially since it was my birthday. Manager was great

“Great Place to Eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

A great place to eat on the water. The staff is super friendly and the atmosphere is fantastic. We were here in March so it was still a little chilly outside.

“Great view,fab food, treated like a king!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I love the valet parking, and the ambiance! One is treated royally! The special flavoured martinis are quite good, as are the crab cakes for an appetizer. The crab stuffed flounder was superb, juicy not dried out & not undercooked, either! My wife loved the Salmon, my uncle the filet mignon, and the teriyaki steak medallions were fantastic! Succulent, rare, just like I love them! We had a great view of the water, too, but the only thing that was a negative; was that the poor waiter had to continually run between two columns to take care of us. Halfway through the meal, a large, noisy group was seated directly next to us, by one column. The entire restaurant wasn't yet full, so I wonder why they would situate them there & thus intrude upon a lovely, so far quiet serene dinner. Over all though, a fine time was had by all! It's very pricey; so we wouldn't eat there every week, but well worth it for a special occasion, or a romantic night out!

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We dined at The Chart House during a recent trip to the Space Coast of Florida. As always, it was absolutely delicious. We've been here a number of times and have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. We always ask for a table by a window so that we can enjoy watching all the wildlife in the river. We were not disappointed this time! We watched a large pod of manatees playing very close for about a half hour. We also saw dolphin, pelicans, mullet jumping and many other creatures. It sure makes for a pleasurable dining experience. The coconut shrimp should not be missed. The salad bar is huge with many unique items offered. This is not a place to take young children. We took our adult daughter. It was her first experience here and she loved it as much as we do!

“Lovely Locatiom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We have dined at this particular Chart House a number of times, but this was the first in quite a while. It was our anniversary and I had requested a table by the window and they did not disappoint. Our waiter, Tommy, was very nice and accommodating. We had the Crab Mango Stack for an appetizer (I could make a meal out of that alone), and my husband had the Lobster Bisque. Both were excellent, as were the Mango Mojitos. My fish was a bit overcooked and the shrimp had that strange flavor that you sometimes get - don't know why. But overall it was good. My husband had swordfish, which he enjoyed. The entrees could have been better, but the evening was very, very nice and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
