    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 4/19/2008
    The only thing that put a bit of a damper on the evening was the surly hostess. Not once did she smile in fact she had a nasty look on her face the whole time we were waiting for our table. Too bad. If she was more pleasant the restaurant would be better off. I was also a bit disapointed there was no mention of our anniversary. Seeing as we had our wedding reception there 7 years ago (and this was noted in the reservation) just a "Happy Anniversary - welcome back" would have been nice.

    The waiter appeared disinterested in us, e.g., the meals were delivered by a bus person before we had finished our salads, and the waiter later brought steak knives after we were half-way through our meals.

    My dining experience was superb. My guest and I are big fans of the Ruth's Chris chain. However, I convinced him to try Chart House. We traveled from Richmond, Virginia just so that he could experience what I experienced previously while dining here. My guest loved the food, spirits, and the atmosphere.

    It was "our first visit". My husband's 45th birthday. The Chart House was nice, romantic and fun for us. The food, atmosphere,the service, everything excellent. On our menu they printed "Our staff wishes you a Happy 45th Birthday" at the top. That was great and made the evening even more special to my husband. Thanks to much. We plan to bring our friends there for an evening to celebrate our anniversary. Valerie

  • The table was tight for eight
    TopGun
    Dined on 3/30/2008
    The table was tight for eight of us-part was against a wall, but the view was spectacular. The salad bar was good but I've seen it better. The seafood was excellent, except for the crabcakes which were awful, and the shrimp which were overcooked. They add an automatic 20% gratuity for large parties which I think is a bit steep. No wonder we never got refills on coffee once the bill was paid! They need some refurbishing on the furniture, but the view beats them all. With all the newcomers in Annapolis, the Chart House needs to be on their toes, though. There are certainly better restaurants in Eastport, West Street and downtown. Overall, it's still good, but not as good as it could be.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/29/2008
    Overall a very good meal. My son says the crab dip is the best he's ever had (and he's had plenty). For me, one disappointment is that it appears the blue cheese dressing recipe has changed. I have the receipe from 35+ years ago and make it occaisionally. The new receipe does not have the "kick" the old recipe had. The new recipe did have a great amount of blue cheese, and it was still better than other blue cheese dressings -- just not as good as it used to be.

  • We selected the Chart House
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 3/26/2008
    We selected the Chart House over other restaurants in the area to celebrate a birthday. We had been there numerous times and had always had a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, our waiter, although very nice, was not the best. We did not get our bread basket right away, while waiting for our appetizer, and saw that the table next to us got theirs even though they were seated after us. My husband received a gin and tonic instead of the martini he ordered and received a weak apology. This drink mix-up happened before (reg. scotch vs B & B that was ordered)!My husband had to make two requests for birthday cake. With many restaurants to choose from and the cost today Chart House needs to pay closer attention to all of the little details!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/23/2008
    like the food, atmosphere and go regularly for special occasions. only disappointment this time was wine selection...since I was the only one drinking, (and the driver) I ordered by the glass. For my 1st glass I had to settle for my 2nd choice, by my 2nd glass I was down to my 4th. This was between 4:30 & 6:30 in the evening, far from the end of the day. I'm surprised the restaurant didn't do a better job of ordering for the crowded Easter weekend. Also, since the alternate choices were more expensive, it would have been great PR to have been offered them at my 1st choice price. When I asked my waitress about it, I was told they didn't do that and didn't even receive an apology. Everything else was fine.

Salad bar is just not as appealing, food is just average, and for an empty resturant, the service was slow. The one nice thing was that it was a quiet sunday night, and it wasn't crowded with tourists. I hope brunches are still good, as this was another great time to go.
