“Very nice for service, location, view and food”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We stopped in to eat while overlooking the beautiful Potomac from Old Town and what a GREAT day! The table we got was perfectly overlooking the water. Service was great and we were even checked on by managers a couple of times. Food was as great as it always is at Chart House.

Their apple cherry crunch for dessert was really good!

Use Opentable and make reservations on a beautiful day to get in when you want though!!

“Delicious, with gorgeous views!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

After a long day in D.C. on business, we hopped a cab to the Chart House. It was a little further out than we'd anticipated, but located in a lovely area filled with little shops, restaurants, bars and coffee houses. The restaurant sits right on the water, offering lovely views.

Because we were eating a late dinner (It was 9 p.m. or so), we breezed in without a reservation and were seated immediately. We settled in, stretched our legs, and ordered mojitos. For dinner, I had the fried calamari and an order of clam chowder. My companion had a lovely plate of grilled fish. Though prices are spendy here, the food is divine. Service was impeccable. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We finished our trip to Old Town Alexandria with an evening out at the Chart House. We were able to eat outside on the deck and enjoy the view of the Potamic River. Had a bowl of corn chowder and the coconut fried shrimp. Good service, and good food.

“Perfect can't be described any better”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

The only thing that I regret is that i did not try their food before. I had salmon fish with maple syrup. They had dried or smoked salmon wrapped around that delicious juicy salmon steak. Service was awesome. Our server was great. Olga and the restaurant manager were great. Thank you for the chocolate molten cake. To be honest, every single thing was perfect. Food, service, fire place and the river view facing the national harbor is just marvelous. Thanks for the great service. I and my wife will be back.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We've been to a number of Chart House restaurants over the years. First time for Alexandria. As expected, great food, ambiance, and service. I had the Snapper Hemingway with coconut ginger rice and my wife had the crab cakes with Asian green beans. Wow, great blending of tastes and textures. We had a nice view of the Potomac River and the adjacent marina while we dined.
