It was a beautiful evening, but we chose to eat indoors because we had heard the views were spectacular AND we could make reservations. We got a table with a beautiful view up and down the river. Great views of Virginia as well as Maryland and a ferris wheel! This would have been a great evening BUT the service was... More

We went to this restaurant a couple of times while staying in Alexandria VA. Our favorite thing was to order appetizers and sit on the deck watching the planes and boats. Wow ...the appetizers were great. We would share a few for lunch with a glass of wine. Our favorites were the crab stack, lobster and shrimp spring rolls, sampling... More

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant as our first taste of Alexandria. We kind of went here on a whim, but what a pleasant surprise. I had the salmon stuffed with crab, spinach and bearnaise, and it was cooked perfectly. The waterfront setting was great for a perfect evening. We would go back again.

We drove from DC to Chart House in Virginia which is not a bad drive. There is a parking garage close to restaurant. We loved the atmospher especially the tables outside. The weather was perfect and enjoyed watching the boats come in. The food and service was great. We will definitely come back.

Nice place with views,but with mediocre food. Cooked and edible, and you get exactly what it says on the menu. The menu and the food is just very, very plain and unimaginative.

My family and I went to Chart House for restaurant week in VA. The food, the atmosphere and the waiter (Chuck) were all fabulous. We have been there before but it has been years. This experience makes us want to return very very soon. Keep up the good work!!

We have dined at this location often over the years. We usually eat lunch, brunch or an early dinner. The location is lovely, on a boardwalk with lots of activities, in an old historic town with walkable tours and boat excursions nearby. You have the option of eating in a picturesque windowseat or on the deck facing the river. Reservations... More

The restaurant is loud, and if you have time, request to dine on the patio. My dining companion and I ate appetizers and drinks in this restaurant. The oysters on a half shell were succulent and flavorful, although expensive. We also ate a small appetizer with small bits of shrimp, crab, mango, and avocado, arranged like a parfait in a... More
