Pretty good with a great view!

Went here for drinks and appetizers. Nice environment and the staff was pleasant. The view is killer and at night the lights are beautiful.

The newly renovated chart house has Amazing views of the water. The menu has a wonderful selection. We were very pleased with our meals. They were very good. The drinks were very flavorful. The dessert menu is also very yummy.

Other seafood restaurants are also outstanding (this is a foodie town, and outstanding seafood is demanded), but what makes Chart House the best is the chef's creativity with the seafood that enhances it (you'll want to lick your plate), but doesn't make it a medium for smothering sauces and spices. Additionally, the bar offers creative drinks, the wine list is... More

I must agree with the review 'Not what it once was'. We had a family birthday early dinner. Although the restaurant is redesigned with seating overlooking the water (very nice) we were seated on the side although there were plenty of open tables. Cocktails were fine but we had to ask for bread. The salad bar as always was very... More

We ate here the week before Christmas on a Sunday night and though it was very busy, the service was outstanding. The shrimp, crab, avocado and mango stack was a nice appetizer that was shared. It's a lot of food but so worth trying. I enjoyed the Bronzed Rock Fish immensely. It was prepared exactly the way fish should be.... More

We recently celebrated a friend's birthday party here. I don't know why this over priced venue was selected but, after many years, I decided to give it another try. The previous salad bar that offered countless possibilities has been replaced with a rather mundane one. The spinach salad was very good and big enough for two. My stuffed flounder was... More

I liked the atmosphere of the restaurant and we were happy with all aspects of our dinner. The service was good and all of the food was excellent. I couldn't resist crab cakes being in Maryland and I wasn't disappointed. The salad was also excellent.

We had a reservation. When we arrived, we had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated and they did not have enough seats available and had to add one more to the table. After we got the menus, we had to wait a long time to order drinks, then a long time to order appetizers, and again a long... More

Quiet location by the water. Relaxed but elegant interiors of what used to be a boat house. Enjoyed their open salad bar a lot. Glad to see my favorite anchovies served in a fine dining restaurant. Service was solid. Can’t wait to go back for brunch or dinner or soak in their bar.

You never know which Chart House is going to be there when you arrive. This trip the service was great and the food was okay. Other times vice versa.
