This elegant restaurant is housed in a building that dates to 1790. Formerly a cotton warehouse, as were most of the structures along the river, Chart House is now home to some of the most scenic dining in the city. Take a seat on the deck to observe the river traffic, or retire inside to perhaps the most charming bar on Bay Street. The prime rib and steaks are favorites, and the seafood is extraordinary. For dessert, newcomers must try the signature mud pie. Full bar service and excellent wine list available.
We purposely by-passed this place on our first visit to Savannah because we knew it was a chain restaurant.....what a mistake! Without a doubt, our dinner there a few nights ago was the finest we've experienced in Savannah. The motif and ambiance blend perfectly along the river & our dinners were excellent.
The Chart House was one of the highlights of our trip.
I go to Savannah quite frequently and have tried many great restaurants; however, the Chart House remains my favorite. I have tried several things on the menu, and I have never been disappointed. The wait staff is very prompt and friendly. The crab cakes are a must!
We ate dinner at the restaurant. The seafood was good but not what you would call fantastic. The ambiance would have been better but we were on the floor with the kitchen and there was some smoke from sizzling food. We would go back but if your time is limited in Savannah their are better places to go.
Walk into this restaurant and you're immediately transported back a few decades as familiar crooners form the background music of this lusciously decorated and furnished restaurant. Located right on the river, you can see the boats gliding by while you indulge in some of the South's finest seafood delicacies. The downstairs lounge is elegant and comfortable, evoking memories of Hollywood glamour of the 50s and 60s. Custom upholstered sofas and rich leather armchairs offer comfortable seating while you sip a martini before dinner. Try the Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms as an appetizer which are sure to delight any seafood-lover; the Macadamia-Encrusted Mahi-Mahi is equally fabulous and comes with fragrant Coconot-Ginger Rice. The piece-de-resistance is a Lava Cake with melted Godiva Chocolate that will have anyone turn into a die-hard chocoholic!
Elegant dining in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere - this restaurant is wonderful and I would recommend that anyone who gets a chance stop by there for an enchanting evening!
Word of advice for newbies: park on River St. instead of Bay St., it's easier to get to the restaurant that way and you'll avoid some neck-breaking stairs that are NOT for the faint-hearted!
My wife and I visited the Chart House and came away very impressed. The bland exterior hides a beautiful dining area. The food was excellent...my wife had the prime rib and I had the scallops. We will definitely return on our next visit to Savannah.

Combine that with great wine, excellent service, and incredible ambience ... what an experience ! ! This was my first visit, but it certainly won't be my last ! ! !
