Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "Over-priced, small portions, waiter was in a rush."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "The service was excellent. Food was average. The beer was warm and the Crab Cakes were only approximately 50% lump crab meat."

  • "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!"

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "Great experience. Table for two right at the window overlooking Annapolis harbor. Tuna was excellent, service was great and the beer was cold. What more could you ask for."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "I have noticed a significant decline in the Chart House experience the last few times we dined there; however we received a gift card and figured that we would at least use that. NEVER AGAIN!!! This visit solidified our decision to never return to the Chart House unless drastic improvements are made. While the prices have gone up significantly over the past couple of years, the quality of the food has headed in the other direction. The quality should be commensurate with price; not three or four steps below. The food isn't horrible... it's just okay, but not for the price point. Service was AWFUL. The waitress was horrible; tipped only because there were funds left on the gift card. Made no effort to enhance our experience."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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
  • "GREAT experience all the way around! The service was exceptional, the food was amazing (pricey, but amazing), the view was fabulous and the weather was perfect to be on the water. No issues with parking at all. Eric was our server and he was very professional and friendly. Reservations strongly suggested and ask for a window seat, you will not be disappointed! Save room for dessert...."

  • "My family of five made dinner reservations for Father's Day. I had requested a table by the water and to my surprise they had one for me. The restaurant is beautiful with its large windows and nautical wood trim. We ordered stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer which were delicious. We all ordered the salad bar with our entree. With an entree it is an extra $8. It was well worth it with many salad options and fresh fruit. Between us we ordered salmon, flounder, and shrimp scampi. Both fishes came with broccoli and rice. We also ordered the chocolate lava cake for dessert. Everything was perfectly cooked and flavorful. Our server Chris was helpful and on top of everything. We heard Happy Hour is a treat. We will be back."

  • "Three of us arrived early for our lunch reservation and were seated immediately. We were promptly greeted by our server and drink orders taken. She returned to take our order and then we waited and waited and waited. It was about 45 minutes before we were served and not once were we given an update or status. The food was excellent and much enjoyed. But the wait diminished or experience. It was Fathers Day but the restaurant was not packed so did not understand the slow service."

  • "We had Lakeysha as our server, she was terrible. We were sat at out table aroung 1:30pm and left around 4:45pm, and it was not because we were ejoying ourselves, all this time we were waiting for our food. The restaurant was not very busy, we noticed that she paid more attention to other tables, and she did not care for our table, and as result our food was very dry, it looked like it was kept under the heater for a very long time and I belive the food was dry because Lakeysha did not picked it up on time. I asked her about our food and her answer, in a very rude maner, I KNOW! and she kept walking. We are not comming back to this restaurant, we will be going to The Chart House in Alexandria."

  • "Everything we needed for the day! Just as expected -the food is always great. Service was more than what we expected, and above all, staff was superb, Timing of food is important and for me the salad request was tops as requested. I just wish that I could go to the Chart House more often. The view of Annapolis is superb, Can't ask for a greater place to eat."

  • "Chart House Annaplis has a stunning view of the Annapolis bay, that will take your breath away while you are enjoying a meal equally amazing. From the crab dip to the steak, everything was mouthwatering and beyond expectation. Cooked to perfection and without an unreasonable wait (considering the popularity). The wait staff was very personable, polite, and a delight. An outstanding experience and a restaurant that I will HIGHLY recommend to friends and family when they visit the area; to include my boyfriend's upcoming 40th birthday dinner!"

  • "Went there Father's Day 2014. We ordered Blackened Prime Rib with scrambled eggs. Couldn't understand why eggs HAD to be scramble, will they came. They were POWDERED!!!! We ordered our prime rib medium. Both came out well done. Sent back, again came out well done. Sent back, this time manager (a 25 year oldish IDIOT) brought it out, STILL well done. Fruit on salad bar was sour. Music was bar type music NOT upper class restaurant music. The ONLY positive was the water view. DON"T GO!!! A waste of time and money!!"

I used Open Table to make my reservation, even after showing her my confirmation was told I did not have a reservation. I understand things happen however this particular young lady showed very poor customer service."
