Chart House is well located at the Southern tip of Longboat Key, Fl. The menu is sophisticated and expensive. The view from the window wall is lovely. It has a very active bar crowd and menu. Also known for their salad bar. Noise level can be high. It is suitable for families with children, would not suggest toddlers or babies.

Buying the card isn't the same as getting a benefit. If you use a gift card that had not been pointed to you, you will not get points for your meal. What a rip off.

Fine dining restaurant that also has a fantastic deal for Happy Hour between 4:30 and 6:30. Inexpensive drinks and tasty appetizers at great prices. I had two beers, some truffle Parmesan fries, crab cakes for about $16. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly people. Recommend a visit.

Chart house has a excellent restaurant ambiance! It needs to speed up on service and make sure it does not consistently run out of the specials it advertises. Every occasion that we have gone in the past two years they have run out of the prime rib. It is not that we arrived late in the evening and I could... More

We made a semi-last minute reservation, so was not expecting a great table, but to our surprise we had a corner table by the window. Our experience up to and including dessert was simply amazing. When you are in Sarasota, make the Chart House one of your evenings out, you will not be disappointed. Scot C

If you get there before 6, you can eat at the wonderful salad bar plus have a delicious dinner. I had the prime rib for $25 and it was mouth-watering good. The views can not be beat!
