Good food but a little slow.

Chart House is right across from the Aquarium and has a nice view. Being the second oldest building that's still standing in Boston, you can feel the history within. The chowders and bisques were very good and had good flavor. The calamari was excellent as was the prime rib sandwich and the... read more

Great view, pricy, but worth it. Stayed at the Marriott Long Wharf so the restaurant was just a stroll away. Food and waitstaff were very good.

While in Boston, my wife and I had dinner at Chart House. A nice restaurant near the waterfront. The atmosphere was welcoming and staff were very helpful. Grilled fish was great and Godiva cake was a real treat.

The building was lovely, though the decor was ugly and didn't fit the setting. The service was friendly and fairly attentive. The coconut shrimp was very nice but the chocolate lava cake was the best part. It seems to be trying to be a fine dining establishment with high prices and table cloths but someone out for a special dinner... More

Near water is the only benefit. Go elsewhere. Staff is curt and not accommodating. Food style is just above cafeteria quality

Part of the Landry organization, this place did not disappoint! Food and wait staff were excellent. Dinner in such a historic building was a treat! Get a Landry's card!

Had a business dinner for a large group. The staff was extremely accommodating. The location and building are great, especially for local flavor. The food is ok, nothing special. Some folks loved their food, I had the smallest piece of local fish I had ever been served in a restaurant. Probably 3-4 ounces max. And it was $27 with dry... More

We all loved the night's special of sea bass topped with lobster and crab meat. I thought the clam chowder was way too salty but my son loved it, my husbands shrimp cocktail was ok--probably had been frozen and not fresh. Delicious bread and excellent service, great drinks
