Great time

I met 2 of my high school friends for lunch at the Chart House. The decor was nice and colorful. The view from our table was nice as well, looking out at the boats and the water and watching the military planes and helicopters fly by. Nice entertainment. The service was good and the food was good... read more

I have been to Chart House Restaurants in Alexandria, Boston and Malibu. It has been stellar food and service every time.

Location on the Potomac River waterfront in Old Town Alexandria could not be better. I say "order carefully" because some of the menu items are very good and others are just average. Save room for dessert: the Key Lime pie is the best I have ever eaten..

This place was really good. We went during restaurant week and loved it. The view was great and the food was even better. Definitely worth it

Even on a busy night with the place packed, all courses came quick, hot and perfectly done. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Food is fresh and prepared with care. From couples to large parties, this seems to be a great place to go when on the waterfront. The piped-in music was a detraction. Playing the standard soft-rock standards one feels... More

This was one of my best restaurant experiences since I've been in Alexandria. Restaurant week consisted of a three course meal. There was a choice of Caesar salad or clam chowder which I recommend soup. There was a fillet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes. And if that wasn't enough there is a creme Brulé for dessert. I recommend using the... More

Ambiance is okay . . . dining room is very open and noisy. View of the Potomac is nice but I found it annoying that, after spending $35 on an entrée (a serving of protein and a starch), I had to pay $10 extra for a vegetable and a salad would have been an additional $8-10. The wines were also... More

Located right on the Potomac, if you sit upstairs you have a view of the whole river! The service and food were excellent and the salad bar was awesome!

We had delicious fresh fish dishes and I had a great gazpacho for the first course. So good I had another for dessert! The view of the Potomac was brilliant from inside (we had a table next to the huge windows), but without the mugginess and bugs outside.
