    Our party of four was very happy with everything - food, service, ambiance. The layout of the place seems to allow every table a great view. Cool, contemporary style design. Has a convenient parking lot, too. We'll be back.

    The location is awesome. However, the restaurant needs some TLC. Worn carpets, definitely could be cleaner and the noise level is mid range. The seating arrangement was also awesome. It wasn’t filled to capacity and the service took a little longer even though we arrived before 4pm and the restaurant wasn’t full. Not sure why google maps said it was closed. There were pros and cons but overall it was a nice experience

    So disappointed at what used to be a five star restaurant. First, there was a huge party of 12 in the corner that were so loud and got louder as they got drunker. The waitress could barely be heard and was sooo slow with our drinks which came very watered down. Then we had to send the soup back because it was cold and our second drinks didn’t come until well into the entree service. The manager took off one appetizer because of the soup fiasco but there was just hit after hit that frustrated me. There were two salt shakers, no pepper, the water glasses were smudged and when I saw them removed from extra seating I saw the waiters fingers inside the clean glasses as he set them on the side bar to reset in another table. The bathroom floor was slimy, like it had not been mopped with a heavy detergent in weeks, only one soap dispenser out of three had soap and only one sink worked (motion sensors). Then the carpet on the stairs was threadbare and worn and the hostess wasn’t super helpful when we asked where we could get a photo of the shoreline since the windows were glared in the indoor photos. Just overall so sad…used to be the best of the best. (And what happened to the signature mud pie?)

    Three of the four meals were excellent, but my wife’s meal was so-so. Also they were understaffed and sat us in an area that was crowded and we could not sit near a window like I requested!

    Skip. Food is mediocre; we even sent one dish back. Waiter was pleasant enough but midway through decided to get a piece of gum and chew it and blow a bubble at the table. Chart House glory days are long gone.

    This is second time I’ve been here this year, once in August and then November, both times I had reservations and I waited almost 30 mins to be seated. I asked to sit by the window yet I was seated by the patio near a window… not the view I wanted but I didn’t want to complain. Our waiter took almost 20 mins to ask us were we getting dinner and never offered the chocolate cake that takes 30 mins to make and is recommended to order at the beginning while ordering your appetizer. This place has gone wayyyyyyy down. I won’t be going here again. The food is good… salmon, lobster and mash potatoes drinks are not worth it but all in all I won’t be back.

    I ordered the filet. Steak was cooked as I like it, medium rare, but it didn’t have a lot of flavor. I needed to add salt. The lobster bisque was very good and had a lot of lobster in it.

    My husband and I went to the Chart House to celebrate our 18th anniversary and couldn’t have picked a better place. We were made to feel welcome from the second we walked in the door, with the hostess wishing us a happy anniversary. We were seated at a window seat by the water with a spectacular view! Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and amazingly conscientious! We never had to wait for anything, he seemed to anticipate all our needs. The food was beyond delicious!!! And, as we were leaving, our waiter made sure to wish us a very happy anniversary!! We couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate our anniversary :)

    my only complaint is that we sat behind the wall where the food is prepared and the smell, not from the food but from the cooking of the food, was very strong. On the other side, the view out the window was fabulous.

    I paid $100 for crab legs that came out cold and the calamari was drenched in sauce so you couldn’t even taste it. They were super busy tho and our waitress was extremely nice and was doing her best trying to serve everybody in there, but I am disappointed in the food

    This is not the Chart House experience I remember. I had to send my food back as it was terrible. The replacement was good. The service was ok. The restaurant is in need of an update. the bathroom was dirty with a sticky floor. It was not a good experience. Also, even having to send my food back (it was cold, flavor bad and shrimp was rubbery). They did not do anything to make up for it. Just an apology and having to wait 20 min for a replacement dish.

    I have been coming here for years first time back since the pandemic my food came out wrong, and I had to wait as my girlfriend ate her food. I ordered prime rib rare, and it came out well done waiter did not check food before it came out for $158. I would rather eat at Texas roadhouse. Also the waiter didn’t tell me what sides came with the meal so I ordered additional sides, the only thing that was on par was the drinks that we got but that was it.. also, the windows were dirty, which you go t for the view. I will never be back.

Celebrating our anniversaries and an 84th birthday made the evening memorable evening; I have never been disappointment since coming to The Chart House for well over 25 years.

    The server added an 18% Gratuity to the bill without notifying me. We were a party of 4 people. Honesty Matters! She should have alerted me to the added charge and I would have happily paid it, plus more. The menu did not mention that gratuity (for any size party) would be added. The food was good, views better but terrible & dishonest way to treat your customers.

    Where do I start? The level of service, atmosphere ,and quality of food is not what it used to be. Our meals were either over cooked or under cooked. We should have left when we walked in and saw how dirty carpets and filthy restrooms. I would not recommend, it is not the Chart House that I remembered.

    The Chart House near our home in NY closed several years ago and we were happy to learn there was one in Philly. Their coconut shrimp and lava cake were as great as I remembered. Our server (sorry I don't remember her name) was very pleasant and attentive. I requested a table with water view for a special occasion and we got it!
