Tampa - Chart House

The Chart House replaced Landry's on Bay-to-Bay and is very close to where I live so I thought I'd check it out. Grabbed a snack and a glass of wine there last night. Had the trio of soups, all were OK, none worth ordering again, wine list sucked, beer selection worse. For what it is, it's quite expensive too. Not sure how well this place will do...

    1. Landry's owns Charthouse. I have never been impressed with them. Mail me at steakman55@embarqmail.com and we will set up the Tallahassee meeting.

      1. on 60? Landrys was bad and Chart House will probably be just as bad.

        1. The Chart House in Fort Myers was replaced with a Joe's Crab Shack (same chain) which is quite popular here. Sure can't be the food...the wine totally sucks. It is more of a tourist joint I guess. The Chart House here had a huge salad bar which always sort of disgusted me. Perhaps Joe's Crab Shack will be next in this spot.

            Yeah Landry's was always mediocre, this place is just more impressively mediocre. It's PRIMO real estate so I was really hoping for something upscale or good. Now I have to wait a year or so until this place flounders. (haha fish pun)

              Yet ,Landrys Corp. stock is at a 52 week high, $25 and change 52 week low....$9.74!!!!! and they just bought another chain,(Oceanaire in Minnesota) sounds like "boost the rev. through acauisitions. The loc on Longboat is the best view on the island, as you say Drtodd "Hope for something good!!!!!

                Bummer. They bought Oceanaire? I had an excellent dining experience at the Oceanaire in Orlando. Goodness, let's hope their ineptitude doesn't infect the quality service at Oceanaire.

                With that location they will be a tourist haven just like Landrys always was.

                  Well lately Landrys has been a tumbleweed haven, but you might be right...
