Great for lunch and brunch!

Champagne brunch here has 2 things that other brunch spots do not have....a beautiful view and a caviar station with cold plates. LOVE. Very affordable as a lunch spot as well. I often take family there prior to taking them to the national airport. It's a lovely treat!

For the money charged, the quality of the food at this Chart House is sub-par. The asparagus side (at additional cost) was not well prepared with way too much of a not particularly good sauce. The potatoes with my entree were not well prepared. The tilapia was OK only and a small portion. Only two good things about the restaurant:... More

Wow, it was fantastic. From being greeted with such friendly smiles, to being seated and then served. I'm not a sea food eater, however I tried the salmon and it was delicious, with the roasted potatoes and the creamy spinach. I made reservations in advance, and had to push the reservation back a half an hour and it was no... More

Consistently good food, wonderful view of the Potomac River waterfront (see if you can get a table by the large windows overlooking the water) , good service and lively atmosphere - this is not an inexpensive fishhouse but the selection and preparation of dishes are wonderful and we have never been disappointed every time we have been there.

We are new to the area and I'm so happy we were able to get in at Chart House! We sat at a table right at the windows, had a wonderful dinner and Mike our waiter made it the best night! He was a wealth of knowledge and we were thrilled to be able to enjoy the meal. The food... More

I really like this place and would definitely recommend it. Friendly staff, great menu. Signature cocktail are mostly on the sweet side but of course you have other options. Try it for happy hour.

I have been here numerous times and I have never been disappointed. Try to sit outside on a nice day. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The menu is varied and the food is good for any meal. If you sit inside, try to sit by the windows that have a water view. It's a great place to do... More

I have not been to a Chart House Restuarant in 15 years, so I was not sure what to expect. While there are several seafood restuarants in Old Town Alexandria all with a similiar price range, I found this one by far, the best. The Chart House did not dissappoint! So much so I went twice in two weeks! The... More

Because Chart House is really the only restaurant on the water in Old Town, it wins by default. It used to be great. The decor changed over the last couple of years and clearly whoever decided on it, was colorblind. It is a mish mash of ugly. The service is usually okay, but the menu changes have not been well...
