    Dinner was delicious. Were there for my parents 60th wedding anniversary. From the appetizers, cocktails, salads and entrees, everything was delicious. Took dessert home as no room while there. They travelled well and tasted just as good as if we ate them at the restaurant. Our waiter, joe, was fantastic, very personable and friendly. Great recommendations. View was beautiful. Especially since the sun came out at sunset. Perfect timing to compliment a perfect meal.

    I'd been to Chart House in Boston and I loved it so when I was planning my birthday stay in Annapolis and found there was a Chart House there I was super excited. However, the experience at Chart House in Annapolis was so disappointing. The restaurant had a handful of people dining the evening I was there and that pretty much tells a story. I ordered salmon which wasn't cooked. I sent it back. The chef cooked me another piece of salmon and that was over cooked. I ended up eating nothing!

    I have to say that I was pretty disappointed. I tooky daughter to dinner to celebrate her first week of kindergarten. We were on time for our reservation but waited 45 minutes. The hostess issued a brief apology when we were seated. My crab cakes had tons of filler and one of them had a huge smoosh/indentation on it. I only saw 3 pieces of lump backfin per crab cake--I was really surprised because I've always had excellent meals here. For $30 crab cakes, I expected better. As someone who has worked in restaurants, it takes a lot for me to complain or send food back, so I didn't say anything, but I was really let down. Our server was excellent, however, and my daughter had fun at a "grown up" dinner, despite the sub-par nature of the food.

    The menu provided variety for the diner to chose from, the featured fishes of the day are a nice option. As far as overall food, the vegetables and rice are not fresh, meaning they appear to be of the frozen type and the rice was almost box like. I will say the fish, I had the swordfish blackened, was seasoned and cooked to perfection. My guest had salmon, which was a little on the over cooked side, which really takes away from what salmon should tasted like. For the prices they charge, the whole meal should be prepared like the fish to justifiy the cost. Mostly you are paying for the view and the fish, the rest is average. Would I return, yes, but it is not on my "must go back to" list.

    We were visiting Annapolis for the first time and were hoping to find a place on the water that offered enough variety of menu for the members of our group. The view and staff were fantastic, but the food was disappointing, bland, and not worth the cost.

    We dined at the Chart House knowing it would not disappoint as. We've been to other CH properties in other locations. We opted to wait for a table by the waterfront to open up and sat down just as sun was setting. Food did not disappoint. The ahi with wasabi mashed potato was fabulous.

    Have been a few times over the years. Can't beat the location. View from bar area is spectacular. View from main restaurant is good if you are near a window. Food is very good but seems like it is getting pricey. $9 extra for the salad bar with an entree purchase is way too much.

    My husband and I went there for our 2nd anniversary and we were pleased with the service and the food. I ordered a whole lobster and noticed it took extremely long for our meal to arrive. Once the waitress came and explained that the cook wasn't happy with how the lobster turned out and decided to cook another one, we were happy that he went the extra mile to ensure our satisfaction and we were comped for one appetizer. The lobster was good but the claw meat was a bit soggy, too soft. My husband ate the stuffed shrimp and loved it. We will definitely go there again. Thanks Chart House for the special service and attention.

    We sat in the "water front" area which is the lounge and we hovered around a dirty table for about 10 min. I went and asked the hostess to send over a busers and she said just stand there and they will be "right over". Our appetizer took a while, it came with burnt toast not the correct bread. I ordered a Cesar salad which was $8.50 it was not dressed properly and had pre-made croutons. My son got the prime rib he loved it. We asked for the reminder to be wrapped up. We had ordered the hot lava cake, which is why we selected this restaurant. We got it and it was over cooked there was no "lava". We asked for the check and the left over prime rib, (which we believe he had thrown out as it was a bigger piece. Very disappointing overall.

    The Chart House is an icon in Annapolis. It typifies the waterfront and dining experience and gives the new comer a small taste of what Annapolis is all about. It may not have the best food in Annapolis but it sure does have the best location.

    Our first visit to Chart House Annapolis was in March 2014 for my birthday celebration and it was awesome. My husband and I both had the Macadamia Encrusted Mahi Mahi and it was the best fish entrée we had ever had. We were disappointed this time for my husband's birthday to learn they had replaced the Mahi with a different fish. Waiter said they could not get the Mahi this time of year, which is odd. But I hope they will bring back the Mahi Mahi for this signature dish. It really did change our food experience as I thought this new fish was a bit fishy tasting.

    Following a day of travel to Annapolis, my significant other and I were looking forward to a relaxing evening on the water at Chart House. We made our reservations for 9:30pm, please note that the system indicated that tables were available at this time and the website indicated that the restaurant was serving until 10pm. Upon arriving at the restaurant at our reserved time of 9:30pm we were not greeted by a hostess, in fact we were not greeted by anyone at all and immediately took notice that the restaurant was near empty. We chose to seat ourselves in the bar area were immediately told by the waitress that the kitchen was no longer open but we could purchase a drink. We informed her that we had a reservation, no explanation was given.

    Dinner at Chart House was perfect for enjoying dinner in a quiet setting with a beautiful view. The scallops were delicious - mild, yet flavorful. The steak sliders are appetizers, but could easily be an entree. The server was attentive and checked in appropriately. I would recommend Chart House for celebrating any special occasion or to enjoy the company of others in a comfortable atmosphere.

    Had not been to The Chart House in a LONG time and decided to go for our wedding anniversary. It was a FANTASTIC meal. My husband got a shrimp cocktail for his appetizer and I got Cream of Crab Soup. Both were excellent. The cocktail sauce was very tangy with a great horseradish bite and the soup was rich and full of crab meat. My husband got the crab stuffed shrimp and filet medallions for his entree and I got the parmesan crusted red snapper. Both were amazing. The Snapper was so sweet and succulent and my husband's filet was very tender. For dessert we got the Smith Island Cake and it was magnificent. Overall it was an amazing meal with wonderful wait staff and a relaxing and beautiful view.

    We enjoyed our visit at Chart House. I must suggest that you take a look at the Happy Hour menu for appetizers and drinks. The prices and food is just great. You can simply do that and skip dinner or lunch. Since it was our first time there we didn't know this but we noticed way too late that that's what most people do. Great appetizers at a very reasonable price. I had the stuffed shrimps with crab and it was delicious and very generous size.

    The table we were seated was near the bathroom and setup station. The restaurant had plenty of empty tables. Complained to manager but did not seem to care. He did take the glasses of wine from our bill. Feel he could of offered to move us but did not. Also told him we were there to celebrate our anniversary.
