My wife and I had a very disappointing (and expensive) dinner recently at the Chart House, Old Town Alexandria. The food was no better than average and service was poor. We have eaten her many times over the past 10 years, but had noticed that food quality and service had both declined during the past couple of visits. We have... More

Went for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. We had an excellent view...right next to the window overlooking the river (which was just perfect). The service was fantastic, and our waitress gave excellent recommendations. They have some of the best clam chowder I've ever tried. My husband thought his salmon was a tad bit dry, but my crab stuffed shrimp was... More

It was a beautiful evening, but we chose to eat indoors because we had heard the views were spectacular AND we could make reservations. We got a table with a beautiful view up and down the river. Great views of Virginia as well as Maryland and a ferris wheel! This would have been a great evening BUT the service was... More

We went to this restaurant a couple of times while staying in Alexandria VA. Our favorite thing was to order appetizers and sit on the deck watching the planes and boats. Wow ...the appetizers were great. We would share a few for lunch with a glass of wine. Our favorites were the crab stack, lobster and shrimp spring rolls, sampling... More

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant as our first taste of Alexandria. We kind of went here on a whim, but what a pleasant surprise. I had the salmon stuffed with crab, spinach and bearnaise, and it was cooked perfectly. The waterfront setting was great for a perfect evening. We would go back again.

We drove from DC to Chart House in Virginia which is not a bad drive. There is a parking garage close to restaurant. We loved the atmospher especially the tables outside. The weather was perfect and enjoyed watching the boats come in. The food and service was great. We will definitely come back.

Nice place with views,but with mediocre food. Cooked and edible, and you get exactly what it says on the menu. The menu and the food is just very, very plain and unimaginative.

My family and I went to Chart House for restaurant week in VA. The food, the atmosphere and the waiter (Chuck) were all fabulous. We have been there before but it has been years. This experience makes us want to return very very soon. Keep up the good work!!

We have dined at this location often over the years. We usually eat lunch, brunch or an early dinner. The location is lovely, on a boardwalk with lots of activities, in an old historic town with walkable tours and boat excursions nearby. You have the option of eating in a picturesque windowseat or on the deck facing the river. Reservations... More
