Space Coast Restaurant Review: Chart House in Melbourne, FL

Let me start by saying the Chart House is one of my favorite places to eat on the Space Coast. I say this because the Chart House is a chain restaurant...and I rarely write about....or even like Chains. They tend to be sanitized versions of places we all grew up with...and these sanitized versions tend to pale in comparison to the originals.

The Chart Hose decided to chart (no pun intended) a different course. I have been to five Chart House restaurants throughout the U.S. and they all have certain things in common:

1. Amazing Views

2. An awesome salad bar

3. Steaks and seafood that seems to always be very well cooked.

To me they are sort of the McDonald's of chain surprises when it comes to your meal, good food, friendly service...and a memorable view that will have you talking about it days later! In Melbourne maybe it will be the sunset you will view over the Indian River that will have you wondering when the next time you will have an occasion special enough to stop by!

Some of my favorites:

Hummus Trio...very nice appetizer portion here.
Calamari and friends...try this
The Miso Glazed this dish
Lobster Tail (along with the salad bar this 7oz tail may be a best deal in quality seafood).
Prime Rib and Shrimp...bring your appetite!

With all meals add the salad bar for $ is a great deal...and you may just take your dinner home for Fido!

The Happy Hour is great...amazing prices and the feel of a 1960's happy can almost see the guys from Mad Men at the stools next to you....good prices and a fun place to be!
