No time for dinner then just grab a bowl of soup. It's worth the stop and the food and view are great. I had coconut shrimp and lobster bisque and need I say more but Go!

Had an ok lunch here. Think something was lost in translation with the food. My understanding of what would come out (as I would expect in England) was different to what did come out. Not a real problem as I am not veggie but I thought I'd ordered a veggie dish which was very meaty when it arrived. Nice enough... More

We have eaten several times at the chart house in Boston over the past several years. We have always had the most delicious food and top notch service! However this past weekend we sat outside on the patio since it was a very pleasant evening. The food was delicious but the service not so much. Our water glasses were not... More

The building is very cool and historic, and the food is good, don't get me wrong. However, it is not worth the money they charge for it. We ordered an Arnold Palmer down at the bar and instead of getting iced tea, the bartender put coffee in it! Yeck! It was also a bit awkward when our server and the... More

Great lunch of fish and chips. She had the scrod sandwich. We started with the calamari which was great, fresh nor frozen like some places. Sitting outside added to the whole experience. The staff very friendly and knowledgable.

It is a marvellous location. Service was very well and my sandwich was the best I ever had. The chicken BLT was a nicely dressed plate, the bread was toasted crispy and tasteful, the chicken was warm and well cooked. Also the other plates looked delicious. The salad my wife took (salad with avocado and crab) was also perfect.

The Chart house was not what I expected. I thought it would be more upscale, although service was great the food did not live up to my expectations

It's a nice spot, wasn't the best food we had in Boston, but it was pretty good, and was reasonably priced.

We stopped here for lunch while visiting downtown Boston. Back home we have a restaurant that use to be called Chart House and so we felt like we needed to check this place out. I had the avocado crab salad and it was very good. My husband had the shrimp scampi and it was good as well. Portions were a... More
