We had reservations and were seated right away.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMyummayThis spot never ceases to amaze me with it's delicious food and awesome service!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI Love Chart HouseI live in Alexandria, so I have been to Chart House many times. For me it is the best restaurant in Old Town for happy hour; great deal and great food quality. There is no junk food on their happy hour menu. I always celebrate Mother's Day at Chart House and the food and service is always excellent. Also it is the best restaurant in town for brunch with an option of a great salad bar by itself or for 1/2 of the price with any entree. I strongly recommend Chart House5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day ExperienceMy wife was very impressed with my choice of restaurants to celebrate her 1st Mother's Day.
She raved about the menu, the service and the overall ambiance. This will definitely be recommended to all

We sat out there and ate during last Saturdays storm. We were almost swept away by the standing water.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceGreat food, incredible view, classy restaurant and good service. Can't ask for much more!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a bit hit or miss..I went to the Chart House on Saturday night and we had a nice table near the windows, our server was excellent and the drinks were great (highly recommend the Cucumber Cooler). But, the food is always a little bit hit or miss here, unfortunately.
We started out with the crab, avocado and mango stack and an order of the oysters Rockefeller which were both excellent. In fact, I'm still thinking about those oysters.
One of my friends had the stuffed flounder and myself and my other friend both went for the Snapper Hemingway. While mine was fine, both of my friends said that their fish was dry and the coconut, ginger rice that was served with the snapper sounded like it would be awesome, but really didn't have much flavor at all.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great dining!Whenever I come to Alexandria, the Chart House is a must! Never Disappointed. The salad bar is always outstanding.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday Brunch - best in AlexandriaThe food was great, with a wonderful selection and salad bar for a great price. Service was great despite the post-church crowd and a beautiful day to walk along the harbor. A must for a relaxing Sunday out, as well as entertaining guests from out of town.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great mealFrom an on-time seating through to the end of the meal, once again we had a great time. Service was timely and perfect, food was suiperb as usual. We were pleased with the surprise at having a table right by the windows overlooking the river.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Anniversary placeI sent my parents here for their 31st wedding anniversary, and they were beyond blown away! Scenic window seat, fireplace, special message printed on the menu (which they got to keep), great food, great service. 31 years is something to celebrate, and Chart House helped them do it up in style.

Long list of wine available from different countries. Food is good too. Overall, it's a good value for your money restaurant, and I highly recommend it.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary DinnerEverything we asked for was taken care of by the staff at the CH. The waiter we had was very knowledgeable about the wine & food. My husband ordered the salmon, it was cooked to perfection, I ordered the prime rib medium rare and it came out well done and dry. I notified the waiter he immediately acknowledge that it was over cooked and took it away and told me he would get me another asap. Meanwhile a young lady (she introduced herself as the assistant floor manager) came over and told us that the prime rib was not over cooked, it was how the light was hitting the plate, the sun shinny in through the window! I had to laugh.. Please! After a brief unsuccessful conversation with her, our waiter brought me a medium rare perfect piece.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience!!! TheWonderful experience!!! The staff were very professional!!! I work in a hotel and will definitely refer this restaurant.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIntroduction to seafoodMy niece came to town for her first visit to DC. We are from the midwest so when she said she hadn't had seafood before I knew we had to go to the Chart House. We ordered calamari, coconut shrimp, crab and lobster rolls, and of course crab cakes. She had a ball and her introduction to seafood was a success! Our waiter was awesome and although we reserved for a late (10:15 seating) dinner our waiter was totally attentive and not overbearing.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful PlaceI counted on ChartHouse to come through for my boyfriends 40th birthday and once again, they didn't let me down. Not a first time patron by far, I'm amazed each time I visit. The staff and attention to detail is leading by far. The chef never disappoints. The fire room in Alexandria is the perfect spot to enhance a romantic evening.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is probably one of myThis is probably one of my favorite resturants if you ever get a chance to sit in the fire room on a date please do.

Of course, there's not a bad seat in the entire restaurant, but on yesterday, we dined exclusively away from the lunch rush. We celebrated a birthday and although it was raining outside the view was GREAT!!!

Manager went out of his way to please my wife with a new and correct meal. Thanks.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful personalized experience.My wife and I chose the Chart House to enjoy our first anniversary dinner. We had eaten at the Chart House in Savannah on one of our fist trips together, so the restaurant was already special. Booking through OpenTable, I requested a river view and mentioned that it was our anniversary. We arrived and were greeted and told "Happy Anniversary", we were then taken to our river view seating for a wonderful meal. While our waitress could have been a little more attentive, overall, our experience was grand, and we will certainly eat at the Chart House on our next trip to the Capitol. To finish off a wonderful evening, we were presented with our customized menus, that had also welcomed us for our anniversary.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA bit disappointed on theA bit disappointed on the small bar with no standing room or any place to sit and have a drink while you wait for your table.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOut server Tyler was wonderfulOut server Tyler was wonderful and made sure we were well cared for, Thank you.

We were a group of 3 celebrating a birthday and everyone enjoyed their meal tremendously. We were already planning on coming another time because of the food and ambience. If you like seafood, this is the place to come.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location, scenic viewThe food was good and so was the service. But the restaurant tends to be too noisy for my particular taste.
Location is great!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a romantic date!I took my wife there as part of her 40th birthday getaway and they did not dissapoint! She had never been to any Chart House before and I had never been to that location. The service, food, wine and overall ambiance were amazing.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Great WaiterMy group and I had a great experience there. The food and drink was awesome. Our waiter named Ross was the man!!! He was most professional and hustled to make us happy. Not one complaint on my end!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated my son's 9thWe celebrated my son's 9th birthday recently and I had noted it was his birthday when making the reservation. From the moment we walked in, the staff made sure to wish him a happy birthday and make him feel really special. The menu was even printed special for him with a happy 9th birthday message. The food is fantastic, view is amazing, and the staff are just the icing on the cake.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Occasion with a ViewExcellent crab cakes! The dinner size is two crabcakes; I prefer the one crabcake appetizer size paired with another appetizer -- in this case the fried asparagus. Grilled swordfish was excellent, and another favorite is the coconut shrimp.
Chart House is noted for its salad bar -- we like it with brunch, but couldn't handle it at dinner.
This is the only restaurant to provide an expansive view of the Alexandria waterfront. Try for a window table if possible.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect. Host/management andPerfect. Host/management and waiter Lou really went above and beyond. It was a great experience despite the rain. Will be back every time I'm in old town!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMoverprice, but good service,overprice, but good service, $100.00 for lunch for 3 people that was high...4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMChart House is one of my favoriteChart House is one of my favorite locales for entertaining family and out of town friends.

Definitely try the mango, avocado, crab appetizer... absolutely delicious.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's rare to find a restaurantIt's rare to find a restaurant that has good food, excellent service and a great view. Chart House meets all those qualities. We've been frequenting this restaurant for several years and we've never been disappointed!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCherry Blossom Happy HourMy husband and I had made a reservation for dinner; after visiting the Cherry Blossoms. We arrived about 45 minutes early and decided to wait in the bar. We were pleasently surprised to find a wonderful "Happy Hour" menu that included drink specials and reduced priced appetizers. As that we aren't big eaters we decided to enjoy the view of the Potomac River while sharing a selection of three different appetizers. Our server, Ross, was attentive and made sure that our dining experience was memorable! We'll be going back again, soon...4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely delicious!This was our second visit to the Chart House, and both times have been amazing! The service is wonderful, the scenery is wonderful, and most importantly the food is WONDERFUL! It is very close to shopping in Olde Towne Alexandria, so that is nice to be able to walk around after the delicious and hearty meal at Chart House. It is a bit pricey, an average of $25-30/person for dinner. The restaurant does not have it's own parking, but there is a parking garage across the street (cost us $10). A great place for date night or special occasion!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
