We have been here a couple of times as we love sitting by the river, the cocktails are good and so are the starters. The entrees are pricey and never great. I would recommend cocktails and a few starters and avoid the entrees.

I certainly have eaten better food for less. Not that the food was bad, just priced more than the value of the actual meal is worth. Will not do again.

It was National Tequila Day!... which is why we visited, and we had eaten here many times before (although it had been a while) and liked the food. We were early for our reservation so sat in the bar area to wait. Decided to eat in the bar area because the view was absolutely beautiful and we could get the... More

Due to a sudden storm we rushed into the restaurant than making it to our planned restaurant a few blocks away. Sitting by the window overlooking the water, we watched the lightening dance in the night sky. Our waiter was very polite, prompt, and well versed with the menu. Our dinner was perfectly cooked and ended with a well deserved... More

First let me jsut say that our waiter was awesome, then the lunch was just YUMMY!!!!!!! We had the Shrimp, crab, avocado and mango stack with the salad bar. So good a must to try if you go to the chart house.

We stayed in Alexandria one night and chose the Chart House for dinner based on its location. We found the food to be great with large portions. The view is beautiful and the area is hopping and fun. We had wonderful service, our waiter was hardworking, efficient and helpful.

Really great waterfront experience. Ask for a window table. Really good menu. Consistently very good dinning at the foot of King Street. Great window views of the port and the Capital, at an angle. Year round nice experience. I strongly recommend the window tables to keep the kids interested in passing boats.

I have been very pleased with The Chart House and this visit was no exception. I advise you go on Open Table and make a reservation as it tends to fill up fast. This is not a budget establishment but well worth the price. The service is always good and everyone is very helpful. On a crowded Saturday night we... More
