My resort set up reservations for my 40th birthday. I was given special seating. I had a VIP place card, a birthday card and a personalized menu wishing me happy birthday. The food was amazing. The experience will stay with me a lifetime.

My husband and I walked the waterfront this past MLK Day. It was cool and we chose to slip into the Chart House for lunch. There was a fire place at the back of the restaurant that added to the ambiance. We had a table with a view of the water. We enjoyed seafood spring rolls, spinach salad and the... More

Popular eatery with a great view of the river and Maryland water front. Excellent seafood and a very nice salad bar. Responsive and friendly waiters. A fine place to bring guests to Alexandria.

I have visited the Chart House numerous times over the years. It is located at a prime spot in Old Town right on the water with a great view of the boats, the river, Woodrow Wilson bridge, the National Harbor, and the new MGM over in Maryland. Great views aside, the customer service is always top notch. Our waiter Joy... More

On a busy New Year's Eve, food and service were excellent! Every aspect of the dinner was special--drinks, appetizers, soup, entrees.

Let me start with noting that all of the wait staff were friendly and attentive. The view of the River at night was great. The food, however, was not equal to the cost. Three steaks with a greasy scoop of mashed potatoes, one appetizer, no drinks, salads or dessert came to $165. I expect more, at least in feeling that... More

Seafood is fresh and delicious. It's a real nice place for a fancy night out. I love to walk along the waterfront and it's location makes it easy. All around treat to go out there

We have been to the Chart House many times. Very disappointed this time. The shrimp cocktail was tough charged us $4 for subbing a baked potato for mashed potatoes and the prime rib was really tasteless. Our tradition of going there on Christmas Eve will no longer happen. The wine and the desserts were very good but pricey.

Thank hellams26
