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

Wonderful view from and old boat house. One of our party had the Lobster Stuffed Cod, which had an amazing sauce on it. Another the Filet Medallions and stuffed Shrimp, The New York Strip which was claimed to be one of the best she had ever had, cooked to perfection and tender and tasty. The Prime Rib was also said...

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.

Went to the Chart House for our 39th wedding anniversary dinner. Not as nice a place as we had hoped, as evidenced by the attire of most of the patrons. We each had a steak and the food was very good. As was the service. You might wonder why not order seafood? Well it's not like they catch any of... More

Chart House is really our "go to" place when in Annapolis. I realize it is a high end chain but it is consistently outstanding with an amazing view of the harbor. Food and service quality is always outstanding.

We stopped in for lunch on a Sunday. They do have a Sunday brunch but we just ordered off the menu. The lobster and shrimp spring rolls were very good (I didn’t care for the sweet dipping sauce so I just didn’t use it). The Shrimp, Crab, Avocado & Mango Stack was also very good. And the Jumbo Lump Crab... More

I have noticed a significant decline in the Chart House experience the last few times we dined there; however we received a gift card and figured that we would at least use that. NEVER AGAIN!!! This visit solidified our decision to never return to the Chart House unless drastic improvements are made. While the prices have gone up significantly over... More

My wife and I took our grandson, a Naval Academy midshipman, out to dinner here while we were visiting with him. I have always like the coconut shrimp at the Charthouse, and he seemed to enjoy it also. Wiped it out in short order and so we ordered more. I have found Charthouses from coast to coast that have consistently... More

GREAT experience all the way around! The service was exceptional, the food was amazing (pricey, but amazing), the view was fabulous and the weather was perfect to be on the water. We had the sampler platter, prime rib (melted in my mouth) and seared scallops. All of the meals were delicious...save room for dessert. No issues with parking at all.... More

Chart House knocked it out of the park on Dad's day. The restaurant was packed but Eddie our server was punctual and made it looked easy waiting on large tables and small alike. The food was prepared just right and arrived as requested. Being a Landry's customer comes with perks as we also found out we knocked $25 off our... More
