There are many, many ghost stories surrounding the former Chart House. Some of them are even funny - like the ghost at the bar who likes to ring up huge tabs in the middle of the night - drinks they didn't even serve at the place! Please continue reading on the new home of Live in Los Gatos
Jonathan, I have never known this restaurant to even advertise the fact that it's haunted, and in the past they haven't done anything special at Halloween. But I think it's a very good idea. (Wonder if it has a ghost of a chance??)
I loved Mary's article. I just heard about Trevese and am planning on visiting the restaurant tonight. After reading, I now plan on using a restroom at a friend's house before I go to dinner. :-) I am a local and over the years I heard about the Chart House being haunted. Never stopped me from eating there and enjoying their wonderful Alaskan Kingcrab Legs. I can't wait to see what Trevese has in store for us tonight.
My son was the manager of the short-lived restaurant that was there between Chart House and Trevese. He has some really hair-curling stories about being alone in the restaurant at night closing out the day's business. I don't believe that anyone had told him about the "haunting" before he arrived there, so he wasn't biased and looking for ghosts. But there were there--the main one was a little girl. His first sign that something was afoot was that there were some large wine bottles that were part of the decor that always seemed to have the labels turned around to the back. He would straighten them, go downstairs to do the books, ( all alone in the building) and when he would come back upstairs, they would be turned to the back again! He kept us all gasping one night with stories like this one. Wonder if it's still happening, or if the new decor has scared her off.
