Great meal value when you get the early dining. Breath taking views and with a little luck, you may see dolphins swimming by. Love their salad bar selections.

We were staying at Longboat Key Resort and they recommended Chart House. They made the reservations and whether true or not, there was a VIP card on our table. The kids loved it and we were treated very well. The Happy Hour is a good selection of appetizers and the drinks are good. This is on the inlet next to... More

We had dinner at the Chart House end of November. It was cold outside but even cooler inside. The air condition was blowing directly onto our table. Waitor tried to do something about it, but to no Privatleben. The House prime rib was tender and cooked medium as ordered. The fish we got was a samon instead of the ordered... More

This visit to a Chart House was terrific. Many others are questionable since Landry's Restaurant Group took the chain over many years ago. This Chart House is diametrically opposite than others during this early bird visit. Great food(14 oz Prime rib was fabulous); salad bar-Meh this is the 'last of the salad bars' at a CH we've seen in years.... More

We had a family event there and half the party got sick and the restaurant couldn't care less. When we told them what happened the dodged our calls and refused to consider there may have been an issue with their food even though several people were very sick. Eat here and your on your own because they do not value... More

My wife and I had early bird dinners here a couple of days ago. Actually we didn't realize they had early birds, but we were there at 5:30 and they went on until 6 pm. We did have a reservation, and got a front row to the windows table with a great view out over the pass. Salad bar comes... More

I had the opportunity to visit this restaurant many times. They are famous for their steaks and seafood yet they also have a nice salad bar with many choices.

Here's the deal. From 4:30 to 6:30pm, the Chart House offers happy hour. Drinks are a bargain, and appetizer plates are very reasonable. This is the place to go with a group of people and try all the appetizers because one is better than the next. My personal favorite appetizer is the ahi nachos, followed by the shrimp tacos. The...

This Chart House is located on the water right at the entrance to the Longboat Key Resort. If you are staying at the resort, they will shuttle you to the Chart House but you can easily walk. Food and service was good. They do have a salad bar that looked huge but we didn't go for it. Even though the... More
