The best water view of downtown Annapolis and the Navy Academy. The window-wall allows views of sailboats operating 30 feet from your table. Food was average and the service a bit slow, but well worth the view and unique experience. Parking may be require a walk.

This was our 1st time here. The service was great, but the food was ok. The food portion size is meager compared to the price...the taste was good. We were 2 minutes too late for happy hour (held in the bar & lounge area only -- first come/first serve seating), but we were able to be immediately seated in the... More

There were many excellent reviews of this restaurant so we decided to try it. We didn't have a reservation and although they seated us quickly, we were (understandably) given a so-so table. Seats upfront over the water looked fabulous, so if you make a reservation, try to get one of them. But be specific. There is water on three sides... More

We have been to the Chart House many times over the years and always had consistently good food. This week the food was delicious but the temperature in the dinning room closest to the water was so cold that it made our visit unpleasant. We asked several times if they could moderate it just a but but with no luck.... More

Sometimes you live in an area but seem to forget that some of the best restaurants are right near by. Living near Annapolis for over 30 years, we know that there are some very good restaurants in the area but have only gone to a select few. Last night. for my wife's birthday, I decided to treat her to what... More

Always go to the Chart House for Drinks at differ locations and always have a great time. Decided to go for my Birthday dinner and it was a very disappointing experience. Have to say, will never go for special occasion dinner ever again but recommend the Chart House as a happy hour place.
