OK, we have reservations in a few weeks to celebrate my son's 13th birthday at the Chart House at the Tower of the Americas, and I was curious as to what the dress code was.

I am hearing "smart casual" is the expectation, but I've also heard there is no formal dress code for the restaurant. Being this is San Antonio, most places are very informal; but as this is one of the nicer spots to eat I was thinking it may expect a higher caliber of dress.

For anyone who's eaten there before, what was the "standard" for the gentlemen and ladies present?

Cheers! M2

Nope, I Google'd it; and that's what most of the reviews were saying...

Plus, it's in Wikipedia!

I wore poplin capris with nice sandals and a button-down shirt; hubby wore button down shirt and khakis.

I noticed most were dressed similarly. When I have been to other Chart Houses in CA and MD it was the same. No jacket required.

Enjoy it!!

We went two weeks ago. I wore a dressy skirt and shirt, and my husband wore slacks and a button down. The table next to us were an older couple, who were dressed quite nicely. A few tables down was t-shirts, jeans and fanny packs. You really can't go wrong with whatever you wear, as it's all over the place there. (Just forego the fanny pack, I beg of you!)

We just had dinner there for the first time last night. We had been at the adjacent Institute of Texan Cultures all afternoon so were in shorts and sandals. We decided to go up the tower for the view, casually asked about the reservation process and were surprised to find they were not necessary at that time so we decided to try it out. I'd say about 1/3 of the people there were dressed like "tourists" like us who just happened upon the place. The other people had obviously planned the evening and were dressed as LittleTPot described. It's a non-stuffy atmosphere, decent food and great view.

It's use to be called Jim's on a stick. Now it is called Landry's on a stick. There is no real dress code. Tourist come in when they find out it's there, as well as locals who are on a night out. The dress runs the gammit.
