The food was presented in an attractive plating. Good variety of seafood,soups, and salads. The shrimp stuffed with baked crabmeat was sumptuous. The salmon was done to perfection. Bread basket had the softest great smelling rolls and other breads. It was fun to watch food that others ordered. Everything looked mouth watering. Leave room for the decadent desserts.

Chart House Restaurant offers a fantastic dining experience on the waterfront in Old Time Alexandria. My boyfriend had the roasted Rosemary chicken and I had the trout with cabell topping. We shared one of the infused drinks, baked crab dip and dessert. We enjoyed our food and the service. We didn't really care for the infused drink. TIP: Ask for... More

On Sunday, they have a limited menu, as well as a buffet. We ordered from the menu and had a very nice time. Great location.

The food was delicious, but a little pricey. The service was average. The food and drinks took a while.

This restaurant sometimes gets a bad rap as 'too touristy' - - but our multiple experiences have always been positive. The staff is friendly, and the dining experiences have been very good to excellent. We often bring out-of-towners here because they like looking out the window at the Potomac and other visible sights, including the DC monuments and the Wilson... More

Week nights can be slow but a great stop is the Happy Hour at the Chart House. The beverages are well priced with good variety. The small plates are delicious ringing from spreads to Prime Rib Sliders. You can sit at the bar or a table or a sofa setting. The view of the Potomac and pier behind the Torpedo... More

My wife and I went here for our 11th wedding anniversary. We used to live in DC and we had been there a few times before so we decided to try it again after not having been there in years. I was concerned about reading some other reviews that the place had gone downhill over the years, but I didn't... More
