We have been to many Chart House restaurants and this was by far our least favorite. The atmosphere was good, service was ok and food was adequate. Fish was borderline overcooked...edible but not mouth watering. The three flavor hummus appetizer was excellent and salads were ok...they forget to bring mine until I said something when my main entree was served.... More

We recently dined at the Chart House for a business dinner. we were told that Due to the size of party (7) we were unable to eat outside, as they only seat parties of four per table outside and could not push tables together. That was fine- inside was beautiful and very modern. We ordered drinks before dinner and it... More

I dined at this restaurant while staying in Alexandria, and the place is beautiful! The service was EXCELLENT, and I THOROUGHLY enjoyed my drinks and appetizer. Unfortunately, I found my entree to be a bit disappointing. I had the sea bass, and aside from being a really tiny portion, I found the presentation to be just OK. Overall, I'd return... More

We have been to the Chart House on many occasions. It has always been really good. This time not only was the service horrible but the food was even worse. The waiter, first of all, could barely speak English. Very thick accent to point we just had a very hard time understanding what he was saying. Then, he rushed us... More

We dined here in June 2014, arriving early enough on a Sunday evening to get an indoor table by the water. The food is also the standard Chart House fare, and we ordered steaks, prime rib, and a nice red wine. The food was well prepared, but nothing more than I would expect for the price (over $200 for 3).... More

We were taken here by friends, and it was an excellent choice. Delightful evening weather-wise so we sat outside and enjoyed the Potomac. We had the trout and the crabcakes, and both were very good as were the salads. Our server, Calvin, was personable and professional and made it a fun experience.

Just returned from a trip to D.C. and enjoyed the best brunch ever at the Chart House in Alexandria. We were able to take advantage of the weather and their great location with an outdoor table. The brunch included a huge salad bar that nicely supplemented our selection of eggs Benedict and a crab and asparagus omelette. Hint: while not... More

Had dinner a couple of nights ago. I enjoyed the salad bar and the dinner was great. I had the sweet and sour sea bass(wonderful). Our server was very patient (large group) and organized.

The view is nice if you are outside..an overpriced cafeteria tourist trap to much noise and the only thing good was the waitress who was new but tried her best.
