This place is one of my favorite restaurants in the entire world!! I'm soooo surprised everyone has given it such a low rating! The view is spectacular, the food is delicious, and it's such a fun event! I always get the Crazy-Good Crab Dip and the Rajin Cajun Steam pot. It's a ton of food, so I recommend sharing. The bibs with sayings written on them are fun (if you end up with a creative server, you'll get some silly sayings; One time mine said, "I went out and alls I ended up with was crabs!!" haha!). Also, when you are cracking the crab open, often times it ends up in your neighbors hair, so be careful!! LOL! I always have sooo much fun when I go. It's an event, like I said, so plan to spend a couple hours. The only downside: It's expensive!

Been here twice, never to go back, everything is out of a freezer and most of it makes it's way to the table via the deep frier. High schoolers at their first job as servers. If you have kids, then at least they can occupy themselves in the playground, which seems wonderful. I recommend the bottled beer it seems to be properly chilled.

Pros: nice view, and playground... just don't eat there

Cons: awful food

A lot of money was spent transforming the old Chart House restaurant into this new place. It's done up in the 'wierd junk all over the walls' decor that was sort-of popular in the 1980's, now it just looks stupid. The servers continue the motif and have goofy outfits with stuff pinned on. They are trained to be obnoxously jolly.
The food was terrible, mostly fried stuff with zero flavor. I went with a large group and nobody was happy with their dinner. I've had better fish at denny's, no kidding.
In short, unless you are looking for a bad dinner in an annoying restaurant, skip this place. It's a shame to waste such a good view of the ocean on a dump like this.

Pros: The view.

Cons: Everything else.

This is a moderately expensive restaurant but they have some great food in a fun environment. They are located in a great location where the old Chart House used to be overlooking the ocean. It's a fun place to go, especially if it's your first time.
