“Superb Mother's Day Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We managed to get a reservation here through the great staff at Loews Annapolis Hotel for Mothers Day Dinner. The location on the water is beautiful. The service was impeccable. Server's name was omar....he was on the ball! We all had seafood, and were all equally impressed by the dishes. The chocolate lava cake we shared was a great finishing touch. Will definitely be back :)

“Always the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I have been going to the Chart House since the early 80's. It is always a pleasure. You can count on the Chart House to always deliver. We took our 11 year old son there for making principles honor roll. He wanted to go there for the prime rib. Anything you get there is always fantastic. Here's hoping for principle honor roll in June. I know where he want to go. Thanks Chart House for always being you.

“It's All About The Experience......"water taxi please"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Dining at the Chart House Annapolis is all about the experience. To start, I would suggest you not park at the restaurant, rather park in downtown Annapolis and take the water taxi to the restaurant (weather permitting). It is a wonderful precursor to approach the restaurant by water and take in the beauty of historic Annapolis. The decor is predictably upscale nautical with huge ceiling to floor windows that allow for a scenic dining experience. The food is very good, a bit on the high side but you are paying slightly extra for the cost of waterfront real estate. Have eaten here several times, so I come expecting to pay more and I am ok with that. Wish they had a few more menu options but what they do offer is adequate. Of course the broiled crab cakes are to die for...this is home of the Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab you know :-) You cannot go wrong with this choice. Bon Appetite !!!

“Just perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We had a family dinner here on the Saturday night of Easter weekend. It was busy, and we were lucky to get a seat in the bar while waiting for our table but we never felt rushed or as if it was busy at all. The wait staff were helpful, one called us a taxi when we were leaving and they were also attentive but not intrusive. Dinner was delicious and luckily we were sharing a dessert as the portion was generous! All in all an absolutely perfect evening. I will be back and will also be recommending to friends.

“Great Food and Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

We were searching for a place to have dinner on the waterfront and drove past Chart House. After checking reviews on TripAdvisor, decided to give it a try. Did not disappoint! The food was great and we really enjoyed sitting by a window, overlooking the water. The Crab Cake Mango Stack appetizer was delicious, as well as the Seafood Stew and Crab cake dinner. I would love to have tried the Chocolate Lava Cake dessert but was just too full.
