Still a Great restaurant.

We came out to DC to visit our daughter. It was a must to visit Alexandria and stop at the Chart House. It was mother's day so the inside was crowded. We had appetizers and drinks on the desk which was perfect. We were so happy that we came back to the Chart House. The food and service was... read more

The Chart House is only one of two restaurant in Alexandria with a view of the water (the Potomac).It is in the heart of Old Town and as compared to other venues, you might select the Chart House for drinks and maybe a snack or two. There are too many better dining choices within walking distance.A great place to get... More

My wife and I travel alot and this time while in Alexandria Virginia we experienced a five star restaurant at it's best. We were advised at our hotel if we wanted a truly great dinner experience we should try the Chart House. So we did and from the begining to the end it was Top Notch. It started with our... More

The grouper stuffed with crab and lemon cream sauce is amazing! And the creamed spinach is out of this world.Don't leave without getting the molten lava cake.Its divinity! However,we went there twice and had horrible service one time.

the restaurant offers a great view of the Potomac River and the local marina. the food was good but not great. Service excelled and the staff was friendly. I suggest you go and give it a try as I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Went for lunch, beautiful day, patio was perfect. This gets really crowded when it's nice out, but worth it. Tuna app was amazing, salad was good & Bloody Mary's were really good and spicy. Salad bar looked very good and fresh, but we did not order it.

I had the coconut crusted shrimp - and WOW! Delicious! And the views from the restaurant are gorgeous - you can see the entire harbor area and the river. Very enjoyable experience - great waitstaff and we were seated and served almost immediately. Would highly recommend this place if you are in the area!

The restaurant has a fantastic location on the river and just behind the Torpedo Factory. The setting is beautiful. We waited for a long time for the reception person to get to us. She was on the phone and did not even look up and signal that she saw us. We were seated and offered a beverage right away. We... More

Enjoyed this restaurant. Food was great. Had the prime rib, it was a good size 10oz portion that came with mashed potatoes...get the asparagus as a side--was awesome. Also tag on the salad bar as it had a pretty good assortment and was fresh....Interesting tidbit - Owned by Landry's.
