I would expect the Chart House to be good, and it was. We were told the meal included rice and asparagus, but the asparagus was missing. We did not mention this to the waiter as we did not want our food to cool down while waiting for the vegetable. The waiter was well versed on the history of the building... More

What a foodie's delight. From our very delicious cocktails. To lobster bisque and clam chowder ...to the Maine lobster ordered with filet mignon. This was a perfect meal. The service was paced to our needs. No rushing. Very attentive. Would highly recommend this place for your next special wonderful meal.

Recommended by the concierge at our hotel (Antonio, Hilton Hotel) we arrived at the Chart House which was full of character and atmosphere. Food choice was superb and from looking at other tables, lobster seemed a popular choice. I had scallops, husband had the lobster bisque then lamb. Portions generous, food amazing. We were given a very warm welcome and... More

Great place after a long day. It's right on the water and a line at the door when they open is normal. The food is awesome and it's a place I always stop at for a meal when I'm in town.

Walking along the wharf, this was one of the few restaurants that still had patio chairs out to enjoy the fresh air and the view as late in the season as we were. Service was good, prompt and curt. Beverages were great, as were our food options Coconut shrimp was very good! Such a wonderful place to watch the world... More

Had a non traditional Thanksgiving meal, perfectly prepared Chiiean Sea Bass, melted on my tounge. The rest of the party had traditional turkey and all the sides. Everyone had a delicious meal. If you like old timber frame buildings, this is a great spot. Servers were all very friendly and helpful, both at the bar and dinning room. Overall 4... More

Came here with a few couples during our weekend trip. Only stopped here because it was close to our marriott hotel and it was a mistake. Service was AWFUL! Slow and miserable staff. Intended on grabbing a bite to eat and have a few drinks but ended up not eating and leaving after our first drink which took forever. Will... More

Spoke with the manager, and told them that not only was the food cold but when they opened the wine the cork crumbled and they still poured the wine in our glass cork and all. They had a very large party in the room next to us. We had been seated and were asked if they could move us to... More

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant close to the waterfront In Boston. Our table was on the first floor and a lot of the tables were taken. My wife started with the shrimp and lobster spring rolls and I had the calamari. Both were delicately prepared and presented and very tasty. My wife's main course was a... More

Tis a fine New England day to stroll the Boston Commons, Beacon Hill, and the north end wharfs. We are quite fond of Chart House dining, and nearly all of the Landry’s entire seafood restaurants guarantee dining excellence. We are spending a convention week in Boston and elected Marriott’s Custom House as a Vacation Club exchange. We overlook the Long... More
