Great food and service. Lovely view of the Potomac River and DC in the distance. Fireplace. Great for everything from a romantic dinner to a celebration with family and friends. We always have Christmas Eve dinner here with family.

The only thing better than the ambiance was the food. I will come here every time I am in the area.We had a table with a view of the water and it was very romantic. The Oysters Rockefeller were the best I have had in years. My entree was the Stuffed Flounder ( filled with lump crab, drizzled with lemon... More

The salmon Caesar salad was nice but the greens were not very chilled. The salad bar was plentiful but not remarkable. The fish and chips were tasty. Service was spotty... at times somewhat attentive and other times not attentive. Clean restaurant and restrooms. Public parking is across the street. A bit pricey but it is to be expected in the...

We had cocktails on the deck on a warm fall afternoon. It was lovely. The long island ice tea was served in layers & was very pretty. The wines were decanted into beautiful stemware. The beer is served in a very tall thin elegant glass rather than a traditional pint style glass. Of course the view is the draw. Inside... More

We've been going there for years and have never had a complaint. Beautiful views of the Potomac from most locations in which you are seated. Plenty of outdoor seating as... More

Our family of 6 adults visited the Chart House on a Saturday in September for lunch. We had among us the spinach salad and shrimp. With 4 cocktails and 2 soft beverages, our bill for lunch was $105. Service was excellent with the exception of waiting for quite a bit of time to have our order taken. The view is... More

The service was great! Taylor, our waitress was the best! Ask for her if you go there. The food was one of the best meals I've ever had. We had the oysters as appetizer which were super fresh and delicious. The clam chowder was better than the crab creamy soup; but both were amazing. The best part of the meal... More

Wanted to dine in a restaurant on the river and the Chart House has the best views so we gave it a try. The service and food were very good. We went for lunch and the shrimp on greens was delicious with the shrimp being prepared perfectly. One in our party had a cooked fish and also was impressed with... More
