A friend gave us a gift card to the Chart House restaurant and we decided to use it for the Sunday brunch. It's been many, many years since I had been there as we had relocated about an hour away from that area. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is still an awesome experience. The view is so...

Sitting by the water in the 'lighthouse' is my favorite spot. Doesn't get any better than sipping a glass of bubbly while watching the boats traverse the Potomac. Well, the food is the crowning glory of this special restaurant. My trout was delicious,although broccoli dry and tasteless without a sauce. Mashed potatoes to die for as is the crab cake.... More

Lots of choices in this cool part of town. We opted for the nautical feel and liked the ambience even though it could use a little spiffing up. Waitstaff was professional and attentive. The crab stuffed flounder was right on. The seafood fettucine was described as awesome by my husband. He didn't think he would be able to finish it,... More

Not only is the view terrific, but if you go to the bar for a week-day Happy Hour, you'll be blown away! Awesome hors d'oeuvre (no need for dinner!) and wine that is priced to please. Enjoy the waterfront with a stop here as you stroll through Old Town some evening. You'll be pleased!

My husband put together a little birthday dinner party for me at the Chart House; it was amazing! We had a window overlooking the water, which I loved! Then to my surprise they brought out the menu and listed at the top was "The Alexandria Chart House Would Like to Wish Niecey A Happy Birthday"! It really made me feel... More

I grew up on the coast and few establishments serve seafood to my liking. However, Chart House has an excellent selection that is cooked to perfection. A great atmosphere & location!

The food was ok but it was not like "wow". I did like as soon as we walked in we were seated. The waiters staff are good .

We had a great meal here on Saturday night to celebrate my fiancé's birthday. We made a reservation on Thursday night and had no problem getting seated at 8:30pm. When we arrived there were a few people waiting so I was glad to have reservations! We had a table with a great view but we were not right next to... More

Our lunch was a delightful experience. The waiter was personable and attentive. Food was excellent. Next time I will order a bowl of the chowder and not a cup! The chocolate cake dessert (which had to be ordered ahead of time) was beyond mouthwateringly delicious.
