Great food and service

We enjoyed delicious food and truly excellent service at the Chart House. I especially enjoyed the flavors of the Key West Spiced Grouper. Worth the $$!

The historic building has an interesting interior but no water view from inside. They do not take reservations for the outside tables. Our server, Nadiia, was very professional & yet personable. We had the scrod stuffed w/lobster & it was delicious. It was served w/mashed potatoes & asparagus. Highly recommend this selection.

It was just incredible sitting under the same wooden beams and John Hancock in this historic restaurant. To think we have both eaten here! The service was terrific, and the food was very good, but very pricey, and the portions are not generous.

During Boston's recent "Restaurant Week," we had dinner at The Chart House. The food was beautifully presented, and truly delicious. I savored every bite of the lobster-stuffed scrod! Worth the trip!

We chose this venue for a special family birthday dinner. After a day of exploring the Boston Harbour Islands, it was lovely to come back to the waterfront to enjoy dinner. We arrived a little early so our table wasn't quite ready. It took a while before the wait staff brought water or came to take drink orders, but once... More

A bit pricey but the atmosphere and location is stunning and the food amazing !!! I ordered prime rib and it was cooked exactly like I asked. The wait staff was professional and also talked to us. I like waiters who try to get to know their customers and make the dining experience fun ! Great job and thank you... More

This restaurant has a fantastic location right on Long Wharf overlooking Boston Harbor, however the service and food experience we had was such a let down. Maybe a refresher customer service course would be good for the wait staff...food was lukewarm as well. Would not recommend - definitely better seafood and steak restaurants out there.

Wandered along by the water and was attracted to the buzz outside the Chart House. It was busy, but we got a table straight away. Sat outside and enjoyed cocktails and a fantastic prime rib with a side of asparagus that would have suited 3 people! Our waiter, Georgio, was busy but still managed to serve us quickly. Great place.

We stopped by while visiting the harbour area. Lunch menu looked good, but we were nevertheless pleasantly surprised and delighted by the quality. We ordered mostly 'starters' as they were so interesting. Half a dozen oysters, lovely and clean shells etc. Calamari with kim chee dressing, interesting and effective. A 'ménage' of three small soup servings, clam chowder (of course!),... More
