Fresh fish and seafood dominates the menu and even takes it a little further by only using what comes out of the water locally. About eight to eleven varieties of fish are featured nightly. When the first of the Chart Houses opened in 1961 in Aspen, they were known for their beef and slow-roasted prime rib, which remain steadily anchored on their menu today.
