Food was ok, but nothing great. The place was short staffed and there were errors in our order and some dishes/drinks did not arrive on time and we had to have waitress go check on and change what was delivered. Slow service!

We went there for my mother's birthday and she loved the food. The atmosphere was wonderful. She's a picky eater and loved everything she ordered.

The location is a great one but they have a lot of competition nearby. The service was excellent and the oysters and seafood excellent as usual. One of us had a steak however and it was as tough as it can get, also not too unusual for a seafood place but when the pricing is what it is, even that... More

I opted for two appetizers instead of a lunch entree, and they were filling. I started with a soup trio sampling of clam chowder, she-crab soup and gazpacho. I enjoyed all three. The next course was a triple stack composed of a top layer of crab and shrimp over a layer of chopped mango with mashed avocado beneath it. Yummy!

We were enticed by the happy hour menu online so my friend and I made a reservation for 6 pm to try out some of the happy hour offerings. They sat us in the dining room and told us the disappointing news: The happy hour is limited to the lounge only, and many of the happy hour appetizers are not... More

I had the coconut shrimp, cup of clam chowder and crepe brûlée for desert. Service was perfect. I would love to go back and eat... More

Arriving on the early side for a Saturday evening dinner--6:00--we were lucky enough to be seated at a window-side table. We noticed that there were a number of large groups of 8-12 guests that the staff accommodated well. The seafood was nicely prepared and the sides such as the coconut-lemon rice were tasty. The four of us split one fabulous... More

Chart House is a chain of restaurants that I have never been disappointed with. The one in Alexandria is great. It's right on the waterfront and has an expansive view of the Potomac and you can even catch a glimpse of the Washington Monument. It's also a nice quiet place to have lunch.

Thank Alice C
