Chart House Restaurant Review

: Perched right over the harbor, this branch of the popular national chain offers diners striking views. It otherwise resembles the many Chart House locations, and continues to serve decent American food in the form of starters like crab-stuffed mushrooms, an herb-steamed artichoke, and lobster and shrimp spring rolls with a citrus-chili dip. The clam chowder is favored by many, as is the bounteous salad bar. Prime rib and steaks are available, but this chain specializes in seafood, with choices like macadamia-crusted mahi mahi, a mixed seafood grill of salmon, scampi and a crab cake, and, of course, lobster tail. The chocolate lava cake topped with vanilla ice cream is the signature dessert, and there is a surprisingly varied selection of seafood-friendly wines.

wonderful wonderful restaurant!

i made reservations at 7pm on 4th of july.

got there. it was not crowded at all. i got my table right away. and i did not even come early for my reservation. i actually got there right at 7pm and was seated right away. there is valet parking and what makes it more wonderful is that it is really really affordable.

compared to every other restaurant that was overcrowded and loud, chart house was amazingly warm, busy but not overly crowded and very intimate. i didnt feel as though i had to shout or strain my neck to hear the waiter.

for first timers going there. they were really wonderful. i had a waiter named jay who was a sweetheart. and what better is that it is located right on the porchdeck where you walk out onto through the back door and take a stroll.

most importantly the food was perfect, i order the prime rib chart house special. told the waiter how i wanted it cooked. between medium and medium rare and it came out perfect! .. wonderful. i suggest you all to get that your first time there.

i had the most wonderful time. and would certainly come back again.
