We celebrated my mother-in-law's 90th birthday here at her request. The place has a great setting but otherwise it's tired to say the best. My husband sent back his prime rib which he said was underdone and tasteless, and mine was tough and gristly. The service however was excellent, and the cocktails tasty.

A great view of the bay. Meal was excellent but very pricey. Had a wonderful salad bar. Steaks were very good, also the fish dinners.

Met with my fiancé's parents for a meal here as we were staying up the road in Bradenton Beach, and they were staying in Lido Beach. Longboat Key itself is very impressive, as was the Chart House. We were treated very well by the staff from the minute we walked in. Although for some reason it was very quiet, this... More

The Chart House in Long Boat doesn't disappoint. I had never been to this location before but had been to others. The Snapper Hemingway was just as I expected. Tender and a wonderful choice. Can't miss the Chocolate Lava Cake either. Definitely make sure you get a table overlooking the water.

Had my parents 50th anniversary here and It was amazing. it was very last minute and they helped us plan everything so quickly. Everyone was very impressed with our location choice and the food was delicious in the package... More

The Chart House has been a favorite restaurant for 4 years. We celebrate our anniversary every year watching the beautiful waterfront wildlife and boaters. We start with the enormous salad bar selections and finish with either a tasty seafood dish or one of the daily specials. The service is very good and we are treated like VIP's every time, we...

We have visited this and many other Chart House restaurants before and always enjoyed them. On the night we visited it was quiet, maybe we had missed the crowds as we went quite late. We had a table in the window area with a great view just as the sun was setting. The service as always was very good and... More
