In town for our anniversary and a friend recommended we go here. Excellent small touches, beginning with asking if we were celebrating anything when our reservations were made. Yes, upon arrival the hostess wished us happy anniversary, then we had special menus that once we ordered were rolled up with a ribbon for us to take home. Sangria was delicious as was the cold lobster spring rolls,snapper hemingway and shrimp and scallops. Our waiter was excellent. We did order the molten lava cake for dessert, not realizing they bring a special dessert. Both were delicious. This will definitely be a dinner we remember fondly, especially since it was our 30 anniversary. Thank you chart house!

Nice date place. Waitress was attentive but not obtrusive. Wait staff worked well as a team. Great attention to detail, swapped out white napkin for a black one so it wouldn't show lint on the black dress.

We have been to another Chart House in Melbourne FL. Very similar. Great food, great service. Very good view of the waterway. If you've been to Chart House anywhere law you know what to expect and this was no different. If you haven't been: excellent salad bar, fresh food, good portions. If you're a chocolate lover the chocolate molten lava cake (order at the beginning of the meal) is a must. Parking was much easier here than the one in Melbourne. For our anniversary they surprised us with a complimentary mud pie dessert. Very considerate and very tasty, although after eating the lava cake we were already full. Great place.

Chart House has a decent Happy Hour. Featured drinks are $5-$7 and apps are similarly priced. We sat on the deck, had a coupe drinks, split an order of lettuce chicken wraps and prime rib sliders. It was plenty of food for two. The entire bill was under $45. That is the cheapest meal we had the entire time we were on LBK and the view from the deck was awesome.
