The Chart House Restaurants (30), for more than 50 years has represented the best of the best when it comes to spectacular settings be it at the ocean or in a forest. Here it is a breathtaking seashore view of waves crashing on the beach while you dine.
Their floor to ceiling windows and inspiring views of the pounding surf sets this restaurant apart from all of the rest. Classy, yet California casual, this Chart House Restaurant is the perfect place to dine and entertain.
Meals begin with a host of impressive appetizers including inspiring oysters ?on the half shell, a savory lobster bisque laced with sherry and tantalizing yet crunchy coconut shrimp served with a citrus chili sauce.
Enhancing your dining experience are friendly yet attentive servers. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
The main course selections are also show stoppers including their host of fresh fish from around the world and superb, perfectly-cooked steaks!
Easy to recommend is their macadamia nut-crusted fresh fish, which is served with a warm peanut sauce, a hint of frangelico, mango coulis and Asian green beans.
For dessert, the pièce de résistance is their world-famous hot chocolate lava cake accented with a delicious Godiva chocolate liqueur molten center topped with vanilla ice cream. You absolutely have to indulge. It’s that good! Over time, many restaurants have tried to duplicate or improve upon their hot chocolate lava cake, but it just can’t be done!
Being right on the seashore with a parking lot the size of a postage stamp, they provide efficient valet parking for a mere ($4). So you will be treated like royalty from the moment you arrive till the moment you leave.
