With the bar facing the marina on the Potomac I almost forgot how great this place is for a meal. Good deals for happy hour and nice servers make it a plus.

3 of us had nice time talking at a table window looking out at a water view. That was our highlight of this restaurant experience. The FOOD was OK, but not exceptional. The service was OK, but not exceptional. Thus, this was an OK visit (average), not exceptional.

We had dinner here after taking a water taxi from the National Harbor area to Alexandria to spend some time walking around old town. Because we did not know times, we did not make reservations nor did we know of the restaurants in Alexandria. We arrived a little after six and was told that they could seat us at 8:30.... More

Silly of me to order the salad bar for lunch at a Chart House...it was good but not great. Instead, I drooled over my husband's fish & chips, my son's coconut shrimp, and the creme brûlée they split (ok, I had a bite and it was wonderful). Go for what they do best!

Generally, the Chart House is a good place to dine but occasionally that expectation is not met. Either the food isn't as good as I expected or the service is poor. The salad bar is very good and the Sunday Brunch is also very good.

As a local, this is my favorite place to hang out! We are Landry Select Club Members. If you don't know what that is, ask on your next visit! It's worth your while! Summer is not our favorite time to visit this place because it tends towards crazy, but that can relate to any restaurant near the water during peak... More

I enjoyed the ambience of this restaurant but the food which took awhile to be served was only ok, I ordered a steak sandwich medium rare and was served well done steak. It was not busy but is in a wonderful area right on the wharf.

A group of 4 of us dined there on a Sunday evening and 1 person in our group of 4 had issues with food and drink. His water glass had what appeared to be a bread crumb in it after the refill. We had not been served any food yet. His cocktail had a dead sugar ant floating at the... More
