My husband and I were on our family vacation and our 24th wedding anniversary was in the middle of it. I wanted to have a nice dinner with my husband to celebrate and our hotel concierge suggested that we come here so I had them book our reservation. When we arrived they had our seats looking out over the river... More

While on vacation visiting my father in Old Town, my boyfriend and I went out for an after-dinner drink and walked down to the river and decided on the Chart House where I'd been many times. (Old Town Alexandria has become very touristy and expensive since we moved here in 1979). I had worked as a bartender in a trendy... More

The service was impecable, the food was delectable and the desert was incredible. Have to say it was pricy, but it does not dissapoint with the quality or quantity of the food.

We stayed in Alexandria on our way for a vacation in Williamsburg, Va. We saw the Chart House and decided we wanted to eat by the water. What a great choice. We were able to be seated outside after a very short wait. It was a beautiful location and a perfect night for outside dining. Our food was amazing. I... More

After carefully arranging a large (about 25) luncheon and conforming to the restaurant's demand to be seated no later than 1100 on a Sunday, food was not served until 1223. Impacting the following church service starting at 1:00. Party included elderly and handicapped and restaurant's elevator was out of service; the party was not so informed until AFTER the event....

The gazpacho soup with an IPA was a nice combination. We was able to get a table by the Window and the Alexandria steamboat just outside.

Booked table on line, but could not reserve window seats as that is against their policy on line. Stillquickly shown to a table with a panoramic view of a busy Potomac river. Promptly received ice water and menus, enthusiastic waiter keen to point out what is best, although that seemed to be everything we chose; perhaps just diplomacy. Daughters humus... More

My wife and I went to the Chart House Alexandria VA on Sat June 28. After a delicious appetizer of shrimp cocktail, she had swordfish and I had flounder stuffed with crabmeat. We had asian green beans and sizzling mushrooms as side dishes. Everything was terrific. Although we did not have a window seat, we were still close to the... More

Visiting Arlington, just for one night. Our friends took us to the Chart House Restaurant. We had a reservation but that didn't matter when we asked to sit outside. (TIP 1) if you want to sit outside make sure you let them know when you make your reservation. Drinks were way overpriced. (TIP 2) don't drink unless you can afford... More

We specifically chose the Chart House for a lovely night dining on the water. We have been to the Weehawken NJ location on many occasion and had good meals. We had made a reservation, and were told to inquire when we arrived about outdoor seating, only to find that outdoor was going to be a 45+ minute wait, even with... More
