We were very impressed with the food and atmosphere. The service was slow as they had a large party in the night but that gives them no excuse to not properly staff

I have been to many Chart Houses, but they all continue to excel in their food, quality and quantity, The Boston location is no exception. High end quality, and a very unique old structure on many floors.

We had not been to The Chart House for years, but saw it when we visited the aquarium and decided we had to go there. We really like the brick building the restaurant is housed in. There is outdoor seating in the Summer. The hostess escorted us to the second level....a stunning room with lots of brick and vaulted beam... More

Had to wait our turn which was long...Clam chowder, Alaska king crab legs, lobster, scallops were all good. Had to pay the bill at the cashiers as our waitress was no... More

I was staying at the Marriott Long Wharf hotel next door. Walked in because it looked interesting on the outside. I like seafood but I very rarely order it. I had the clam chowder and it was great. For the main course I had a scrod and crab dish. It was one of the best seafood meals I have ever... More

We walked up 2 flights of stairs to our table. Had 6boys with me.the atmosphere was nice. The waiter was a little chilly to begin but eventually warmed up. The fish was excellent. My son loved the lobster.

I'm a regular at Chart House and go there because of the location and valet parking and the menu selection. The food is usually very flavorful and well presented. The service is excellent. My only complaint is at times the 'background' music is much too loud for the dining experience. but I'll continue to go and ask that it be... More
