We have established a tradition of Valentine's Day dinner at the LBK Chart House. The reasons are simple: all-around excellence. We let the restaurant know we were hung up behind a massive traffic accident. When we arrived 20 minutes behind schedule, a smiling host led us to a ready table. Our server brought our drinks and bread swiftly, took our... More

One of our favorite restaurants, but on holidays it is crazy! Very busy, and wait staff is very rushed, but food is very good! The biggest complaint I have is that people smoke right outside of the front door. For an upscale restaurant I would hope they would address this issue. We couldn't get in the door fast enough!

We enjoy the views at the Chart a House as well as the food and service. They have a very nice 'salad bar' - and many nice selections on their menu. Beautiful setting.

We had a great dinner in the bar area around 7:30 PM. Happy Hour ends at 6:30, making this a "go to" place on Longboat Key if you haven't made a dinner reservation somewhere and want a nice dinner. Alena provided wonderful service with a smile after surviving the very demanding Happy Hour crowd...

Excellent salads, fish and great service at lunch, plus you can see the waterway from the terrace. the place is rather pretentious in the evenings and it's dark outside.

Cant believe the treatment we just got! When we arrived we advised it would be separate checks. After we had been there for two hours with constant ordering of additional beverages and food the manager stormed out red faced yelled at us saying we constantly moved around changing seats - of which two of us swapped seats next to each...
