Came here with a few couples during our weekend trip. Only stopped here because it was close to our marriott hotel and it was a mistake. Service was AWFUL! Slow and miserable staff. Intended on grabbing a bite to eat and have a few drinks but ended up not eating and leaving after our first drink which took forever. Will... More

Spoke with the manager, and told them that not only was the food cold but when they opened the wine the cork crumbled and they still poured the wine in our glass cork and all. They had a very large party in the room next to us. We had been seated and were asked if they could move us to... More

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant close to the waterfront In Boston. Our table was on the first floor and a lot of the tables were taken. My wife started with the shrimp and lobster spring rolls and I had the calamari. Both were delicately prepared and presented and very tasty. My wife's main course was a... More

Tis a fine New England day to stroll the Boston Commons, Beacon Hill, and the north end wharfs. We are quite fond of Chart House dining, and nearly all of the Landry’s entire seafood restaurants guarantee dining excellence. We are spending a convention week in Boston and elected Marriott’s Custom House as a Vacation Club exchange. We overlook the Long... More

Beautiful restaurant, by the water, great service, the food is pretty average however. I had the prime rib and shrimps and both were average at best. Not a place to take someone to impress them, and for the same price, in the same neighborhood, City Landing offers a much better menu. Overall I will not miss Chart House if I... More

For a high-end chin restaurant the Boston Chart House was a great experience. Surprising local bar crowd who were very friendly. The interior of the building is spectacular and the bar area is particularly warm with the low ceiling and all the old wood beams. Would love to be there in the winter. Only had an appetizer at the bar... More

On October 11, 2014 we had our son's rehearsal dinner at the Chart House Boston. The bill was over $4000.00 so I expected everything to be perfect. The food was very good. The alcohol was very expensive. The room was terrible. It was in the high 60's outside and had to be in the high 80's in the third floor... More

When my mother and I travel we look for restaurants that combine a bit of history with a generous amount of creature comforts. The Chart House gave us just that! It is located on the harbor in a Georgian Style (I think) two-story red brick building that is "Long Wharf's oldest surviving structure" with a brow raising menu. We had... More
