The food here is constantly good and fresh. Although the restaurant is part of a chain, it has a neighborhood feel. There's always a selection of fresh fish that's well-prepared. The Chart House has a beautiful setting in Annapolis harbor--the tables in the bar along the waterside are especially nice for early arrivers. Highly recommended for good seafood and fish.

Short 10 min walk over bridge from downtown tourist area or water taxi ride. Fantastic views if by the window of all the boat activity which is fun. Food was good but service so-so. Went for brunch in colder weather- restaurant wasn't full but our service was slow and truly needed some training to be considered higher end to match... More

We absolutely love the chart house, so when I got a promotion last week my husband treated me to a congratulatory date night with a view!! They are currently renovating which results in the main dinning room being closed and only the "bar area" being available. Lucky for use it was a Thursday night so it wasn't too busy we... More

We haven’t been to a Chart House restaurant in a while, but have enjoyed them in the past because you can count on the menu and service to excellent. It was good to see things haven’t changed. The Chart House menu, although focused on seafood, has a good steak selection, as well as prime rib (which is my wife’s favorite,... More

Good deal on better than average bar appetizers till 7? Check with them since all the downtown restaurants are somewhat seasonal

Great location on the water with great views. Seafood dishes would be the specialty and oysters on the half shell are great. Does not feel like a chain restaurant.

I didn't want to eat at a "chain" restaurant. But let me assure you that not all chains are alike. This Chart House was unlike others I've dined at. You should def give it a try!

This restaurant has large seating capacity yet is somewhat overcrowded with close seating. Food is good as is the waterside views. The water taxi from the Marriott Hotel will take you over for three dollars per person.

A call to I think Christine who was amazing looked to see that we had no reservation and that they were... More

Our visit to MD had a lot to do with crab. So crab stuffed mushrooms, crab stuffed flounder & crab cakes were on the menu. I had the seafood trio that added salmon & an odd shrimp scampi to the crab cakes. The scampi aside it was the best meal we've had in a long time. We topped it off... More
