  • Anniversary dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2003

    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.

    A few months ago, we had a fantastic fish meal (Macadamian encrusted Mahi) and recommended it to our accompanying family. Unfortunately, this time the fish was not fresh and the sauce fell short of what we had previously enjoyed. The staff made good on a replacement dish but the fact that had to be done was disappointing.

    the restaurant is BIG and busy! most staff are young so some of them lack experience so a few things were forgotten, hopefully they will improve with more experience. Food was much better than expected and we were expecting it to be pretty good! it was SO delicious. The margarita was one of the best we've had. the baked Chesapeake oysters were amazing and very filling. my snapper hemingway was so good but sadly I couldn't eat it all due to the oysters, but because it was so good I actually took the rest of it home which I NEVER do. my wife's Macadamia crusted Mahi was also amazing. other great thing about the restaurant is the water taxi stops right outside. whole experience was wonderful and definitely going back

    As far as chain restaurant goes, chart house always delivers consistent quality food. My only gripe is when I ordered wine and was brought a different vintage than what was advertised. I brought this to my waiters attention and he said the manager get the wine and my vintage was unavailable on the first bottle. However, the second bottle was the vintage advertised on the menu. I made a comment to the waiter but no manager ever addressed it with me. Overall you go to this place for the view.

    Really nice wine by glass list and good seafood. the Chart House is a nice destination special occasion restaurant. However, the waitress, was rushed, and abrupt. She seemed to lack the ability/ desire to engage, inform and serve. At prices that scream indulgence, she failed to rise to that level.

    The restaurant itself is Beautiful-warm golds, reds, incredible views. The salad bar had wilted greens, fruits were fair, plates had to be rifled through to find a clean one and then handled very gingerly as they remained frozen for a few minutes. Some of the dressings were so cold they congealed. My husbands prime rib was one of the best he's had but my 'medium well' marinated steak was beyond well done and the Yukon potatoes were cold and tasteless. A gentleman in our group received one paltry rib for his $30+ fare. It was a Thursday night in Annapolis and we couldn't get reservations at Carol's Creek (sp?). There was no noise level as we were one of maybe half a dozen groups if that. Let me know when it's got a new chef and management.

    After a tremendous dining experience at the Chart House in Alexandria, I assumed I would have the exact same experience at the Chart House in Annapolis. Boy, was I WRONG! We were a large party celebrating the Family Patriarch's 70th Birthday. The only highlight was the host (Krista) who did a great job setting up our special evening. From there everything went downhill. Our server was slow and poorly trained. Although the restaurant was practically empty, we received lukewarm food. Lesson learned? You can't expect the same experience from one Chart House to another.
