I have not been to a Chart House in some time however the food was great and consistent as the last time. This restaurant is right on the Potomac River. Nice views from the outside table we were at.

We stopped in here for a quick snack. Seriously this place looked so dated I wouldn't dream of eating a proper meal there despite the wonderful location. It is crying out for a makeover! Blue and green carpet with blue and green bar - surely everyone knows these are not colors conducive to eating. Staff seemed friendly enough and the... More

Service was very good and we never felt rushed. We enjoyed it and would recommend. Nice to walk along water after dinner. Parking was a... More

Chart house food is great but the price is steep. Get there for happy hour (4-6:30) and wine and beer are a fair price and the sides menu are priced from 3-6$..3 of them make a meal. Don't get the a 5:45 and expect to get a seat...

The service so sloooooooooooow that I thought that the waiter was break during the time we were eating. He forgot bring out our appetizer, but did not forget to put on the bill. I reason we went to the Chart House is we have been to other locations and had good service and food. The Alexandria location is not worth... More

They ran out of filet mignon. On a Wednesday. What kind of steak restaurant runs out of steak? Needless to say, I will not be going back. Not what I was expecting for my one year wedding anniversary dinner.

My friend and I went here for happy hour and food. It was very good as always and I had the coconut shrimp with gazpacho and a glass of white wine. They have a very good wine list, good selections. The prices of everything is high, but it's a waterfront restaurant that can command the higher prices. They have a... More
