Visited the restaurant for our anniversary dinner and I have to admit the place was marvellous. The location is on the waterfront which provided scenic views throughout our dinner. The food was well prepared and was tasty. Staff were excellent and the whole experience was very positive. Would recommend to anyone in the area.

We were seated outside overlooking the water, had a great view, and the atmosphere was just what you want when enjoying a seafood meal. Unfortunately, when our food came out one entree was completely incorrect, one had the wrong side, and one was as ordered. We also waited 10-15 minutes for the correct meal to come back out and during... More

This restaurant is really nice and we had a table by the window with a nice view of the boats and all. The food was really good but the service the highlight here. Good options on menu

My husband and I stopped by on a recent Sunday, and given that it was a bit cool outside, opted to sit at a table in the bar. Food was delicious! Shawn was our waiter and he was terrific - patient, good-natured, very attentive.

You cannot beat the location of this restaurant as it is right on the river and it is a very pretty setting. The salad bar alone is worth it and they make a lot of really good appetizers.

Went here on a lovely sunny day but a 20minute wait for outside tables so we chose to eat inside. Menu was interesting but the service was slow, pleasant but slow and it wasn't busy. Views were great even from an inside table, there is Avery convenient parking garage just tucked at the back of the restaurant. Would like to,try... More

Chart House is considered by most to be fine dining. And although the ambiance and environment are welcoming in that sense, their customer service is slightly lacking. Having visited on a very busy Saturday, our waitress was pleasant and amicable. Unfortunately, she wasn't familiar with the menu nor options for substitutions, additions, etc. She constantly had to go back to... More

Excellent seafood, great views of the Potomac and outstanding service. The salad bar was wonderful, reservations are probably a good idea.

The restaurant is beautifully located on the Chesapeake River. My mom and I ordered from the lunch menu. I ordered the salmon burger and she had the steak sandwich. The food was okay, nothing special-especially for the price. However, it could have just been what we ordered.
