Diner Reviews
  • "Me and my girlfriend spent the weekend in Annapolis to celebrate our 5 year relationship of dating. When booking our accomodations reservations, I was also thinking about a great restaurant to have dinner and celebrate at. This was a no brainer to select the Chart House as our place to dine. Not only is it a great value for the money, the atmosphere it is one of my top 5 places to eat. This day was very special as I asked my girlfriends hand in marriage and she said YES!!!!!!!"

  • "Our waiter was fantastic (M.C. I believe). Unfortunately the food was over priced and mediocre at best. The crab appetizer was bland. Both entree's (snapper, MD Chicken) were also flavorless and were missing vegetables for rounded flavor and color on an otherwise brown toned meal. I will say they hit a home run with the chocolate lava cake. I would come and order just that, but nothing else! The bar looks fun and its a great location so if their cocktails are on point then it could be a great place for Happy Hour. The music, however, was terrible for dinner. Rod Stewart and Duran Duran songs; while cool for a 90's party or even in the bar side of the place, just do not fit in a "fine dining" atmosphere. "

  • "Was celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. Asked for a table by the window. This restaurant has 3 sides facing water and they couldnt give us one. Two women walked in just ahead of our party of 4 and was seated at a table for 4 by the window. Was extremely disappointed by this. Pretty much made the evening not quite as special as it could have been. May not return because of this. I know this request was not guaranteed but no attempt was made to try and accommodate us. VERY DISAPPOINTED."

  • "Though you do have to be a vulture if you want to get a table overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, it is definitely worth the wait. Beautiful views, and you can have drinks at the bar while waiting. I recommend the Mango Mojito, best drink I may have ever had."

  • "Service was courteous, prompt, professional. Food came out hot, and spacing was good between appetizer salad and entree, although the entree took a little long to arrive.Probably due to being a busy Saturday night. Food preparation and presentation was excellent. It was easy to see that the management an service staff was actively engaged in keeping the customers happy. Overall a very pleasing dinning experience. Definitely at the top of the list for a return visit."

  • "I've been to the Chart House before, and it has been very good. This time however, my husband and I left very disappointed. The service was good, but the food was disappointing. We went on a Saturday night, which may have been a mistake. It was packed and, although we had a reservation, we had to wait 20+ minutes to be seated. The lobby was like a zoo. I was really surprised when the man ahead of me handed the reservation hostess a 50 dollar bill to get him seated, even though he had no reservation. She did tell him she had no seats for at least 90 minutes, but still took the $50. I had never seen that before, and I was wondering if tolerating those types of customers was why they were so behind. I was disturbed after seeing that."

  • "Dining at the Chart House is always a pleasure. I have been eating here since 1984. I now have an eleven your old son. For earning straight A's on his report card, we told him to pick a restaurant. He picked the Chart House. He loved the Prime Rib and the Lava cake. I guess the Chart House will stay in our family. Always a favorite. Our waiter Carlton gave him a high five. He was awesome."

  • "First time visiting Chart house and it was my birthday, so I was looking forward to some great seafood.....Not. It was okay it came out cold and that was the first problem, but I just had high expectations and was let down. I feel like I could have gotten the same entree at a local seafood takeout with a better price."

  • "We were an extended family getting together to celebrate March birthdays and made the RSVP through OpenTable. Next day Chart House called to confirm the RSVP for 10 asking if we were celebrating a special occasion. They asked for the names of the celebrants and told me they would received a complimentary mud slide dessert. When we were seated, we were given menus with Happy Birthday to the celebrants across the top. When we were done with the menus they took them and later brought them back rolled & tied with curly ribbon and gave them to the celebrants. We were there for Sunday Brunch and it was great. Everyone loved the salad bar...salad, fruits, breakfast breads...wonderful."

  • "I found out about charter house by using the open table app on my phone. I wanted something nice and different so that restaurant popped up. I read the reviews and chose that one because that particular day was my birthday. Food was great, atmosphere was quiet not loud. My Man enjoyed his long island so much that after we ate we went to sit at the bar to converse and applaud the bartender on his excellent skills. Needless to say, we had another drink. We would definitely be going back soon."

  • "We loved our waiter, Eddie (Eddy?). He made our meal special by being unintrusive but attentive, very charming, and cute. Also, I suffer from migraines and asked the manager if she could turn down the music and she did! How nice. Gorgeous view, lovely space, and comfortable dining. I would have liked more spice in the food, as it was good but a bit bland. The time between the appetizers and the entrees was a bit long, but not ridiculously so. Perhaps it made us more eager to eat when our main course arrived! Get the chocolate lava cake, if you like chocolate. It won't disappoint. But allow thirty minutes for it to be made. Three birthday celebrations were occurring right in our area of the restuarant, making it a festive time."

  • "Chart House is a wonderful experience. The food is good and the service on par. My guests and I enjoyed the incredible views looking out to the Potomac. At sunset the dining area is buzzing with conversation and waiters so be sure to make your reservation ahead of time and be patient when you get there. Would go back and dine there again."

  • "I was very disappointed that we didn't get a water view table even though our reservation was for 5:00 PM. My brother and his wife came from California and I was hoping we would have a water view. I even specified it on the reservation."

  • "Lovely venue and even better scenic view, especially for the boat lover. Ambiance is good. Reservation policy is a bit frustrating as the best seats in the house are first come first serve. Made reservations, still had a 30 minute wait until a first come first serve seat opened up. Food is fresh, beautifully presented and delicious. Servers were a bit over stretched but well intended. Drinks went empty for long periods but check backs for quality. This is one of our favorites and provides a wonderful view of Annapolis. We will return."

  • "I had read mixed reviews about this restaurant but decided to make a reservation anyhow. I'm glad i did. It was a saturday night and my father's 92nd birthday. I arrived first and was seated immediately toward the back of the restaurant. The view was ok, but it was just of the marina. I spoke to the hostess and explained that it was my father's birthday and could we be moved up front where there was a view of the Annapolis harbor and the naval academy. They happily obliged. We were seated in the lounge area which had a wonderful view. The service was wonderful. The staff was very attentive and the food arrived in a timely manner. The dishes were wonderful. All the seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection."

  • "And it was great. All brunch entrees come with the enormous salad bar. And mimosa's only .99 (yes that's right less than a $1) with your entree. There was a special price on bloodies, but don't remember as I was enjoying my .99 mimosa ;-) All but (1) got omelettes which were perfectly light & fluffy. The other had the prime rib, which was also very good. We were celebrating a birthday and they were so thoughtful to actually type a birthday wish at the tops of all of our menus! Such a wonderful touch. Our server was very good also. We've loved CH for dinner/bar for awhile and now we love it for brunch too!"

  • "We went for a birthday celebration early on a Friday evening. The greeters and wait staff were wonderful. Excellent wine selections --- we tried several from the by the glass list and and found them to be very good. Nice selection of appetizers and lots of seafood dishes to choose from. Food was well prepared and beautifully presented. Desserts were scrumptious! Portions were generous, we ended up taking a couple of boxes home with us. Our waiter was fabulous and took fantastic care of us, never leaving our water glasses less than a third full and even offering to box up whatever items we didn't finish to take home with us. Wonderful waterfront views (we had dinner just before sunset at one of the window tables) of the marina and boats."

But I did here at the Chart House, he was very surprised and enjoyed the dinner and special attention he was given. I would definetely dine here again...especially in the summer time!"

We attended for a special occasion and they gave us special custom menus and dessert for it. We felt very special. They really paid attention. The filet and potatoes was delicious as was the bottle of red wine and chocolate lava cake. The restaurant was gorgeous inside which we were told was used in WWII for ship building. The outside views of the water as well as the window seating views and views from the bar were incredible. I recommend going here and requesting Alec for any special occasion."
