The service was great! Taylor, our waitress was the best! Ask for her if you go there. The food was one of the best meals I've ever had. We had the oysters as appetizer which were super fresh and delicious. The clam chowder was better than the crab creamy soup; but both were amazing. The best part of the meal... More

Wanted to dine in a restaurant on the river and the Chart House has the best views so we gave it a try. The service and food were very good. We went for lunch and the shrimp on greens was delicious with the shrimp being prepared perfectly. One in our party had a cooked fish and also was impressed with... More

We went with another couple for dinner. The food was nothing special, but the atmosphere was great. Even though the restaurant was pretty full, the dining room was quiet enough that we could visit without feeling like we had to shout at one another. The salad bar is especially nice, with just about anything you could think of from which... More

First, I have to say that the location is fantastic! Huge windows over looking the Potomac and pier. Lots of great spaces to indulge your desire to gaze and relax. Great decor. The food was good that we had but not great. We're from the area and perhaps crab snobs so when we when we have crab cakes, we expect... More

I love this place. The views are just lovely and the food is usually very delicious. While my entree and salad were tasty, my husband's meal was very dry (salmon) and the calamari wasn't all that fantastic. Even the chocolate lava cake was lacking that night. The service started out great and our waiter was super nice but my glass... More

Have been going to the Chart House for years, but the prices go up and the quality goes down. Try somewhere else in old town.

Although pricey the food, atmosphere and view are worth the money. I had the she crab soup which was delicious then had the Spiced Ahi for my entrée. The Ahi was served atop mashed potatoes with a Wasabi flavored sauce. The sauce had just the right amount of spiciness and was absolutely delicious. It was some of the best tuna... More

We've dined at the Chart House twice and we we have been wowed both times. The waiters are first class, gorgeous water views and the food is to die for. The salad bar is terrific with so much to choose from, including caviar!

Great Atmosphere for family holiday dinner. Quiet so you could hear everyone talk. Pleasant wait-staff.

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
