I was thrilled with a surprise party at Chart House. Setting is great, right on the Potomac. There was even a wedding right outside on a boat which made for better scenery. Service was excellent with two wait staff for our party of 12. Food is good thou everything is pricy. Good for special events but not for a simple... More

We had a business group dinner with about 15 attendees. The staff was very prepared, friendly and attentive. Drink glasses were never empty and food was delivered timely. There are plenty of tables with views overlooking the water...not a bad seat in the house. We had a fantastic experience and I look forward to dining here again.

The King Salmon was decent but nothing special. The tilapia cover with baja shrip was delicious. The molten lava cake was great.

This was a third visit. For the cost not a good deal. Crowded noisy poor service food was good but slow. Not a fan of chain restaurants this is a good reason why. There are better in old town with better service food and price. Don't bother.

Martinis followed by Filet Mignon at a Chart House window on the Potomac. What great fun. We have been coming here since 1997 and we are never disappointed whether for lunch, cocktails or dinner. It can be touristy, but so are we. The location at the Old Torpedo Factory in Alexandria is just perfect for a waterfront stroll and then... More

Great restaurant, spectular views of waterfront and Potomac River. Perfect for special occasions. Reservations a must. Food is superb and menu is varied and imaginative. I had the halibut which was perfectly prepared. Can't go wrong.

We arrived in a good mood via a short walk from the free trolley. The restaurant is situated in a beautiful harbor along the Potomac River in Alexandria, VA. We arrived early, circa 5:30 pm, to get a seat with a good view. The manager said that ALL tables have a good view. He's right. There were plenty of tables... More

Was there this past Friday and had Molly as my server. I asked her for her recommendation for drinks and lunch since I couldn't make up my mind. She was spot on. I got a bourbon drink infused with Cherries and Cinnamon and Swordfish topped with a crab mixture that was delicious. She checked on us and cleared our empty... More

Went for happy hour on a Friday night, with a party of 10. The service at the bar was great, but the drinks were extremely slow to come was we sat at atable. The service for the Hors d'oeuvres was not any better; worse they were not all served at the same time. Some of us finished with our Hors... More
