  • "Left a message on open table about this being my wife's birthday and they did not get message"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I made a reservation at Chart House to celebrate a special occassion, and we had a great experience. The food and service was wonderful. Everything tasted great. We also had a great view of the boats and the water from our table inside, which was just beautiful. Other than the loud table of four seated next to us, it was a perfect evening."

  • "Excellent food and tremendous service! The chef even came out and reviewed the menu with us because my mom has so many allergies! Completely awesome all around!"

  • "This was our first experience dining at the Chart House and we were very impressed from start to finish. The online reservations process was very easy and once we arrived, we were quickly seated near a window with a gorgeous view of the harbor. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. We were able to have conversation without interruption from noise and enjoyed great food and excellent service, and had a memorable evening at the Chart House. We highly the Chart House restaurant and look forward to returning soon.."

  • "We were celebrating a friend's birthday. After finishing our dinner, our waiter seem to disappear for a half hour. I had to go to the front for assistance to locate him. Review would have been higher if the service was better."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The restaurant is in a nice setting on Annapolis Harbor with access by car and water taxi. Food is good but somewhat on the pricey side, especially if you add in the salad bar and ala carte side dishes. The seating area is very large so there isn't a real intimate feel."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Special occasion celebration for a group.. The table was jammed up against the wall and some of the flatware was missing. The waiter wasn't bad, but he wasn't great. Huge delay between clearing the main plates and offering coffee and dessert. There were definitely a few misfires from the kitchen. Several of the fish dishes were disappointing. Chart House used to be a steak house, but the filet was dry and had a salty rub that overpowered the flavor of the beef. $500, for 8 people, with only 2 cocktails, 2 glasses of cheap wine and 2 desserts. They really need to step up, particularly in the kitchen, for extravagant pricing. Back to Ruth Chris next time instead of Chart House."

  • "food was very good. very friendly staff and excellent ambience. would definitely recommend. really enjoyed the customized menu celebrating our anniversary."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "This restaurant is a lovely place for friends and family to meet for brunch. There is the best salad/ fruit bar with something for everyone - young and old. The menu has Brunch only selections plus the Chart House full menu. Staff were attentive and eager to please. The location is great in Eastport with plenty of parking and the view is excellent surrounded by Annapolis Maritime. Apart from the salad bar which gets 5 stars, the brunch entrees are a little tired with only a 3 star rating."

    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Food still isn't up to par...must do better! This is my 3rd time patronizing your restaurant and the food is not flavored properly and portions are very small for the price!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We were lucky and received a window table. During appetizers and a nice glass of wine, we watched the sun set over Annapolis Harbor. The food was excellent and service perfect!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I had given up on the Chart House. My wife wanted to take her kids there and I thought they might enjoy the boat house atmosphere. Food and service were OK but for Chart House prices this is not good enough."
    Dined on 7/5/2014

  • "I did not enjoy the fish the waitress recommended, and there was a dead fly in the yogurt on the salad bar. What was great was that the waitress and manager both strongly apologized."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Great evening and very good food. It was our first visit to the Chart House in Annapolis. We were dropping off our son at school and we plan over the next four years to eat a meal at the Chart House every visit. The GM - Tom Finnan came to our table and introduced himself and congratulated our son. Additionally, the restaurant added a very touching note at the top of the menu in regards to our son. Very thoughtful - I posted a picture of the menu with the note at the top of the menu on Facebook and recommended the restaurant to anyone visiting the area. Highly recommend!"

  • "The restaurant has been a consistent performer for occasional dining over last 30 years. Also a local favorite for special occasions due to waterfront location, windowed bar and dining room, spaciousness and casual elegance (not chaotic casual) ambiance and nautical theme. Food and service have been consistent and quite good. Prices are not inexpensive, and you can pay less for equivalent wine and food quality (or quite a bit more) depending on city and venue. My mother considers the salad bar a key attraction, the rest of us find the seafood choices interesting and quite satisfying both in the preparation and presentation (though the latter is generally not in the vain of fine cuisine). Fresh catch. Meaty cream of crab. Lovely bar."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "My wife and I decided to take a few weeks off and explore the list if places in Maryland that we just never made time for. Chart House was on the list and we decided to go for Sunday brunch when it was less busy due to reviews of noise leave and questionable service at dinner time. We arrived at 10am to a nearly empty restaurant and chose a table right next to the bay windows. Our waitress was very attentive even as more customers arrived. The salad bar and entries were fresh and prepared well. I had tenderloin eggs Benedict and my wife had the hazelnut French toast. With $1 mimosas, we sat and chatted until about 11:30am in enjoyable atmosphere with a great view. Five stars for this visit."

  • "Over-priced, small portions, waiter was in a rush."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Saturday morning we made a reservation on-line for that evening and mentioned it was our 39th anniversary. Our table was ready when we arrive and we were presented with menues that had a Happy Anniversary wish to us printed across the top. The server (Eddie) was promot and attentive and we never felt rushed. The food was great- East Meets West Tuna appitizer - yummy!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I had dinner Sat. night with 3 friends. The view was spectacular! It was a beautiful night and we were seated close to a window. The food was great,as usual. I really enjoy it whenever I come."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "This was only my second time dining at the Chart House. It was just as memorable as my first visit. The service and dining are absolutely outstanding. The menu offerings are plentiful without being overwhelming. The staff is warm. The presentation of the food is great, and the atmosphere can actually be what you make it: romantic, loose without being too loose, formal if that's what you prefer. I believe the combination of these qualities lends itself to the friendliness of the people who dine there or stop in just to loosen up. There is virtually no stress to the customer, and I recommend this place as a MUST for fine dining."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The service was excellent. Food was average. The beer was warm and the Crab Cakes were only approximately 50% lump crab meat."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We were visiting Annapolis from Pittsburgh and a friend recommended the Chart House. The food was excellent and our server was great too. I recommend the Maryland Crabcakes with the chopped spinach salad as a starter. When we visit Annapolis again, we will definitely stop at the Chart House again!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Unfortunately it started with the reservation web site showing a table that in fact was not available for dinner - nor were there ANY tables available in that room for dinner. We were seated with no real view of the Annapolis harbor (one of the major reasons for going to your restaurant). We were only told of deserts that had to be ordered ahead of time to make them. When they came out, only then were we told about the other deserts! My wife ordered an espresso with a shot of anisette. The waiter came back and said they didn't have any. My wife drank her drink and didn't say anything. When the waitress returned later I asked her if they ever carried it and she said she checked the "SPICE RACK" and didn't see any!!!!! Please"

  • "We each choose a different Eggs Benedict, which included a sumptuous salad bar. Mine was the one that included two Maryland crab cakes and I'm still talking about it to friends and coworkers back in CT."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The food was good but the service was slow and the waiter tried too hard to be chummy. Perhaps if he stopped being chummy he wouldn't have been so rushed and the service would have been better. The main dining room is large with a focus on increasing seating capacity rather than providing a comfortable experience for their customers. I kept smacking chairs with the person behind me whose conversation was too easy to listen to. You are paying a high price for the view and not the service or the food. A decent gluten free menu was available and there is a salad bar choice which has a nice selection. The large dining room has a good view if you find yourself lucky enough to be near a window. There is limited parking so take what you can."

  • "Table was available with no wait. Got window table, which made the dining experience very special. Waitress was very attentive--cute and cordial. Great salad bar!"

  • "It was my birthday and they made it very special. They had Happy Birthday Laurie on the menu and a huge peice of cake for dessert was provided as a special treat for free. Great view, great service from Liz, great dinner."

  • "A little pricey, but wonderful food. We love dining at Chart House for special occasions--birthdays, anniversaries, etc."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Food was good but over priced - even for Annapolis. Service was very good. Biggest complaint is that the air conditioner was not working adequately on 90 deg evening so it was very uncomfortable in the dining room. Waitress said this is typical on hot days since the building is old and not well insulated. Annapolis/Eastport has many fine restaurants from which to choose. We will not be returning to the Chart House."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "It was too hot to be really enjoyable. The food was good as was the noise level."
