At night, the Delaware River looks pretty good. There are twinkling lights and a lot of activity on the water. The staff is really busy, the check and check and recheck everything. The food is good. Try those rolls. Appetizers seem to win the day in Philly, they were great. The tuna plate and lobster bisque - yum. Entrees have... More

The restaurant has amazing views!! The food was awesome, ESP the Oysters Rockefellar! We were celebrating a friends 50th before a Fleetwood Mac concert. The only downside was the server wouldnt stop trying to up sell us on everything. We felt like saying don't worry we will spend $$$ and tip well if you will just shut up!! She made... More

We don't mind paying several dollars for a drink, but we do expect some booze in them. After complaining for the first round, we were assured the second round would be better, But no. Foolishly we tried one more round and it too was an alcoholic drink in name only. Neither my wife nor I could remember ever being so... More

Having spent a few days in town we were tired of the hotel meals so we took a car here on the advice of our doorman at the Monaco and were not disappointed We both had the gazpacho soup and Chilean sea bass and it was the best I have ever had! Prices were fair and the view was spectacular.

My wife, teenage daughter and I all enjoyed our meals. We made reservations well in advance and were seated at a table right next to a large window overlooking the Delaware River. The service was friendly and professional. My wife enjoyed a moscato sangria, while I savored a smooth pinot noir. My daughter and I loved the salmon, and my... More

Fantastic views of the Delaware River, ships and Camden, NJ. Our server Joe was excellent! I chose the Chilean Sea Bass with a sweet cranberry relish topping w/Risotto. The dish was excellent, the fish was cooked perfectly! The only thing I did not like was the price but in the end the food and service was well worth the money!

I have been coming here since I was a kid. We recently went back for nostalgic reasons and I was hoping the food would be as good as I remembered. The Clam Chowder is worth the visit alone it is so good. The atmosphere is nice and the service was great.

While staying at the Hyatt Regency Philadelphia Penn's Landing, a group of us walked down the river (about a 5 min walk) to the Chart House. The location and view were impressive ... this is a fairly good size restaurant with (I believe) 3 levels, all with panoramic water views (of the Delaware river). To be fair, we were a... More
