Beautiful view, good service and a yummy Boston cake! And my husband said the clam chowder was one of the best he's had. Service was abit slow but they did have a private function going on so to be expected!

Restaurant was close to our hotel so tried it out. Building was old but well maintained, as interior was classic old New England structure. Server made excellent choices for selections for wife and I for Supper. Food was excellent and quantity of food was very ample, but I think a little on the pricy side.

Service very slow, the menu has been dropping in specialty items and less and less seafood choices. Great location, views from inside not the best

Can't decide what to have, try the "Best of Soup". You get clam chowder, gazpacho, and lobster bisque. All wonderful. Nice décor and great service.

APPALLING and ATROCIOUS!!!! 1 star is too high to rate this restaurant. I eat out often, and this was the first time I ever went home and cried about a dining experience. I got engaged a week ago and my parents drove 6 hours to have a special dinner with me and my new fiance to celebrate. They picked the... More

Excellent food. Great mango mojitos! We had the prime rib, and the surf and turf (short ribs and salmon). Both were done perfectly. Dessert was a mudslide (coffee ice cream with fudge, nuts and whipped cream). Big enough to share. Wait staff was very attentive and the manager even came around to check on our table. The only reason that... More

After dining at a Chart House in a different city, while on vaca in Boston we decided to splurge on a fine dining experience. Although this location is on the waterfront, it unfortunately does not have the waterfront view we hoped for. The service was ok. The waiter seemed easily confused and commented to one person in our party about... More

We have looked at the Chart House menu in the past trip to Boston, but have usually ended up going to Legal Seafood instead. A member of our party had dined there a few years ago so we agreed to give it a try. Although it seems to get a bit crowded at times around the Hostess station, dinner turned... More
