Nice sunny day so we sat outside. Good position to people watch - and there was lots of activity. Good choice on the menu. Service was good and so was the food. Waitress gave good advice about local brews.

We went here whilst on a family holiday (we are from the UK). The food was good. The service however...I paid on a post office debit card and have a receipt showing about $160 dollars. A few days later on the app I noticed a €200 withdrawal from the chart house. I went back and queried this with the manager... More

A actor played John Hancock while we had dinner and explained some of the history to our group. Not sure this is a normal or everyday. Wonderful building dating back to 1700. Food was good and service was fast and friendly.

Popped in for refreshments after a really lovely boat trip. Checked if we could just have a drink as didn't want to eat. Advised that was ok but they seemed confused at the request. Ordered a pot of tea for two (I know this a very British thing but surely it isn't alien). Service was poor and we felt more... More

Had a wonderful lunch experience at the Chart House in September. We were able to sit outside at a table and take in all the activity that goes on down there in the wharf area. Very relaxed atmosphere, our server was very attentive. I ordered the clam chowder and my wife ordered the lobster bisque, and we each got salads... More

We where staying at the Marriott bling warfarin next door so we tried it for lunch. The food was very good but the waiter we had was ver unattractive. Had to keep asking others for help. We finally paid the manager for our meal. The waiter never showed back up !

Had 7:30 Reservation, didnt's sit down till 8:30 after being told it would only be 20 minutes. Service was slow and waiter was more concerned about selling a dining card for the Landry group. Food was mediocre, grilled fish was overdone. Big disappointment, would not recommend to anyone, too many other good places to eat in Boston.

Keep walking, the service in this place is dismal and definitely not professional. The male waiter that served us was very gruff and really shouldn't be in the service industry. There are way better places to visit in Boston.

We visited the Charter House after checking into our hotel and found it while walking around the harbor. I ordered a crab cake which was absolutely yum! Then I had a ceaser salad that was very nice and would feed 2-3 people. After that I could not eat the Coconut shrimp w/ mango rice so I had it wrapped. Ate... More

The decor is warm and cozy. Table service was excellent, never rushed. The food selections are varied enough so if someone doesn't care for seafood, then they have other choices.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
