Enjoyable evening

We were staying at the Marriott and wanted to walk to dinner. The Chart house was close by and I am glad it was. We had a lovely dinner. The food was delicious. There was enough variety for everyone to be happy. I had the surf and turf and the short ribs were tender and delicious. I chose the... read more

My husband and I had dinner here and it was outstanding. Chris, our waiter, recommended the tuna appetizer, which was fabulous. He was attentive but not annoying and provided exceptional service. Will definitely come back here the next ime we are in Boston.

The best part about the Chart House is its location inside what was John Hancock's Counting House. Pretty historic location. The food was okay, sampled about five different appetizers and none of them wowed me. Bland might be the way to describe the whole dining experience here. The lobster bisque did not have a good depth of flavor and the... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our Saturday evening dinner here on 21 Mar 2015. We had arrived in Boston late on Friday evening, I had a day-long meeting at Westin Copley Square, and we were looking forward to a peaceful dinner.

The food was very good, but the service was slow. I felt as if I was an intruder. Perhaps it was because I was dressed in jeans and sweatshirt.

Went here for a drink after lunch, service was terrible. It took far too long to be seated- no one was at the hostess station when we arrived. Once we were seated, the waiter took his time coming to take our order. Not impressed, shame for what seemed would be a nicer place. Disappointed. However it is a nice location... More

On Patriots day weekend of 2015 we decided to take a trip to Boston, MA. We visited the Science Museum and spent most of our day exploring. We made reservations at the Chart House for 8:30 p.m. What a great dining experience. The clam chowder was amazing (TOPS) and the atmosphere was superb. The sword fish top with crab meat... More

The Chart House is an upscale chain of restaurants that do seafood right. The Boston location caters mostly to business trade and tourists. That said, the food is quite good. Terrific clam chowder, swordfish and mani-mahi done to perfection. Good portions and great ambience. On Long Wharf, a short walk from Quincy Market. Parking is not very easy unless you... More

We decided to walk down to the water front and stumbled upon this restaurant. We took an outside seat and had a glass of wine, some amazing calamari, and the best cup of clam chowder. We both had the scrod and substituted the potatoes for broccoli. The entire meal was amazing from tastes to presentation to ambiance to excellent service.... More

Excellent food, at reasonable prices and very friendly staff. We visited this restaurant a couple of times during our week in Boston. A great place for lunch in the beer garden on a sunny day. The coconut shrimp and the lobster rolls are awesome. We booked for a meal on a Saturday night, (booking is advisable as busy) and had... More
