We had to reserve a day in advance and got a table with beautiful views of the water, birds and dolphins. The food was good and satisfying, not spectacular. We all liked the kim chee calimari. We definitely would order that again. The wait person, Alina, was friendly, charming and informed.

Had a table for 6 with a beautiful view of the water and dolphins swimming. Our server David was the best and made for a great experience. Appetizers, lobster bisque and entrees were delicious. By far our best dinner of our stay.

We've eaten at the Chart House for the last 15-20 years and always enjoy the restaurant. Good service, good food, the view of the New Pass is always interesting.

I wasn't too excited about going here because the Chart House is a national chain and my dining memories of prior dinners weren't anything special. I was pleasantly surprised by the fine cuisine we were served- all fresh seafood- crab/avacado tower, calimari, coconut shrimp, king crab legs, grouper, etc... Everything was quite good and the menu was much more creative... More

The Chart House on the New Jersey waterfront with spectacular views of Manhattan was the favorite restaurant for me and my late husband. I always ordered the prime rib dinner because few restaurants other than steak houses offer this top quality dish at a reasonable price. Everything at Chart House is consistently top quality: vegetables, desserts etc. I was, therefore... More

Recently visited the Chart House with a large group. We sat out side and had a great view of the bay. Most of the people ordered off the early dinner appetizer menu and enjoyed sampling different offers. We ordered off the early dinner entree menu that included the salad bar with our entree. We had salmon and prime rib and... More

As usual the scenery was beautiful and the food excellent. During season it is equally important to provide ample parking and we enjoyed our lovely afternoon.

I have written a review or two before this. I love the Charthouse. Love the bar staff. Kristin was our server this last time. She is great. Love the fire cracker shrimp. The view is fabulous if you sit where you can see it. Do wish the bar was more exposed to the view but you can sit outside or... More
