We invited some friends visiting to join us for dinner at the chart house. I wish we had picked the Crab and Fin. We were counting on the salad bar to be as good as it used to be, but the selection has deteriorated and the floor around it was wet the entire 3 hours we were there. The salad plates in the supposedly refrigerated storage area were HOT! Our prime rib was requested medium well and it came out VERY well done. The waiter was excellent in checking with us and bringing out another piece of meat that was indeed medium well. There was $3 up charge for baked potato instead of the mashed potatoes that were horrible.

We apologized to our guests for the food but we did enjoy the window table and the great view. I doubt we will return

Thank Byron C

Each year my wife and I celebrate our anniversary at the Chart House. The beautiful location, view, food and service makes each year's celebration great! Of course we go to the Chart House throughout the year and are never disappointed. WE LOVE THE CHART HOUSE.

Sadly this place is not what it used to be. Interior looking worn. When we visited a couple of weeks ago we were seated right next to where the servers have a desk. It was also next to the door where servers take food out to a patio. The ledge of the window was filthy as was the carpet with dead bugs. Our meal was definitely not as good as in the past. A manager, one I had not seen before, did ask if everything was good toward the end of our visit. I told him about the very dirty area we were in and that it was offputting when food was being served. His answer, ‘I will bring it up with housekeeping, try not to look there ‘ and then he pointed to across the restaurant and followed with, ‘look that way.’ We always enjoyed our visit to the Charthouse. It had always been a favorite place especially for birthdays and so on. The views of the water are spectacular. Something has happened for us to see a big change. Maybe new management, but it will not be on our list for the future sadly.
