I was in town for a business meeting and our group dinner was here. This is a very nice place right on the water with large windows over looking the harbor and boats. For our group service was excellent and very attentive they did a great job. I had the olive oil grilled halibut, I prefer my fish simple in... More

The location is great. The lay out is charming. The food is average and expensive. They need to focus on providing a larger selection and larger portions versus a weight watchers worst nightmare.

This Chart House has been remodeled since I was last there many years ago. We used to go there and order a bunch of appetizers and drinks and spend an evening watching the sailboat races. They have moved the bar section back from the 3-sided glass walls which now houses only the fine dining section. I can understand that they... More

In summary, the Chart House has to be one of the, if not, THE BEST restaurant in downtown Annapolis. Between, the water views, the fantastic food, the great wait staff and the wonderful atmosphere ........ what more can I say! Though the atmosphere and name give the appearance of upscale, it is also casual as well. We've seen people totally... More

We were here with a group of twenty for a graduate @ UM. My biggest compliment is for the service. It is extremely hard to manage twenty people but our waiter Omar deserves five stars. Food is a little pricey however given it's location I can understand that. Parking was a little tight on a Friday evening. Any of the... More

Chart House is my favorite restaurant in Annapolis. The Views, the food and the staff are all excellent....There has been a major renovation and the old Chart House has been transformed into a slick, metropolitan restaurant with lots of black, grey and chrome. The inside was gutted and the floor plan has totally been redone. An elevated bar area greets... More

Great views in the recently renovated Trumpy Boat Yard. Our group of 8 gave the renovations mixed reviews. Some loved the more urban feel. Some thought the use of space was better, but painting the wood beams was sacrilegious. The service was outstanding. Ask for Chris. He was attentive, helpful, and fun. The appetizers were the best part of the... More

My first visit to this Chart House was in the middle of a cold dark winter..sitting in a comfy chair in the lounge overlooking the water we enjoyed the warmth of the fireplace and awesome Cream of Crab soup with a drink. The soup was divine with sherry on the side to accomodate any level of enhancement. Excellent service and... More

We always dine here for birthdays, anniversary and Christmas Eve. Never disappointed with the menu. Salad bar is the best in town. Their recent renovations which included moving the bar lounge away from the water view of downtown Annapolis and putting the dining area where the view is now makes it an even more special place.
