Beautiful views with good food

I have been to Chart House before and my favorite is their Coconut shrimp. The presentation for it is amazing and it tastes great. I had Salmon which was good, but nothing spectacular. Other guests had different fish dishes as well. If you want a great view and vibrant setting with good food, its... read more

Had Thursday night reservations for 11, and the table was ready and staff was helpful and knowledgeable. I had NY Strip steak, which seemed cooked more than the medium I had requested. Nice salad bar but no anchovies! Nice water views right on Potomac in Old Town Alexandria. I'm a local and don't go here much except when hosting members... More

This was a poor experience overall. We were told it would be a 30 minute wait to sit outside. In reality it was over 45 minutes, which wasn't a huge deal as we had a nice drink at the bar. We had noticed that a table outside had sat vacant for at least 15 minutes. When we were shown to... More

The Chart House sits right on the Potomac River in Old Town, very close to the Torpedo Factory. While the food isn't out of this world, it is good. Service was fine. If you're looking for a view, then it doesn't get much better than what you'll find at the Chart House.

The crab tater tots - first off - were amazing! Love that app! I had the grouper. While it was good, I wouldn't say it was worth the $$$. The service was just okay, but we were able to get seated as soon as we arrived - on a Monday. Would probably try some other spots before going back.

Visited for my birthday dinner. View and decor very inviting, service good but food was "OK" for the price. Had Mahi and was very dry and veggies (the carrots) had a bad taste. My husband had AHI Tuna blackened. It was good but so hot could hardly eat. From La we like hot but it drew your mouth up from... More

The Chart House is the perfect on-the-water restaurant whether you are seated indoors or on their patio. There is lot on the menu to choose from; plus, it offers a terrific salad bar and an extensive wine list. I think everyone will enjoy expertly prepared food with killer views of the Potomac River. NOTE: There are two floors; the upper... More
