Amazing meal

We were meeting some friends for dinner, we were seated immediately even though the rest of our party had not arrived. Our waiter promptly filled our water glasses and took our drink order. The awesome service continued after our friends arrived and our meal was finished. The food was awesome and... read more

The worst experience EVER, I took my wife there to eat and the waitress demanded payment upfront. She also lied stating that it was company policy policy. We had to get the manager involved to reprimanded her for asking us for money upfront.

The best view of the river activity in the area and menu is varied and very good. The deck seating may not always be available without a wait time.

My husband and I go here for special occasions! Sometimes we just go! We love walking in Old Town Alexandria and then ending the evening with a meal at Chart House. We take our out of town guests here. Fine Dining!

Our lunch at Chart House was excellent in every way. We were seated quickly for an early afternoon lunch at an outside table. Our server, Eliot, brought our drinks, took our orders and made sure that we had everything we needed. The food was brought quickly and was very good, while the views up and down the Potomac River were... More

Amazing location right on the water where you over look the National Harbor. We chose to eat outside and we not disappointed with the ambiance. Our water was very accommodating explaining the menu and some of his favorite selections. The food was amazing! Very bold flavors and they also have a very attractive wine menu. My only negative would be... More

Unlike its brethren in Cardiff by the Sea, CA or the Grove at Bayshore in Miami - and despite its incredible location right on the Potomac waterfront in Old Town, this CH lacks the luster, finesse and quality its near legendary national namesakes entertain! Although I cannot score their culinary offerings highly on the scale, I can say it is... More

The lobster they sell is not from salty water, it's more like fresh river water. However, the taste is great. I ordered sweet tea and it was great too.

We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon with a long-lost cousin, overlooking the Potomac river on a beautiful day. I was disappointed that lemonade tastes like the powdered stuff and perhaps this set the tone for a so-so meal experience. The skimpy portion of bread was not refilled. The calamari was light, succulent and very well prepared. The scallops were a... More

Wait staff was efficient and friendly, great clam chowder and cream crab soup (may have that name wrong). We voted the clam chowder the best. Red snapper, lightly breaded and seared, with excellent lemon cream sauce (needed more--we got some). Two of us split that. Not cheap, but good.
