We were seated at the very back of the restaurant with a view of Blue Plains. The hostess was very rude! It was ten minutes before we even got a server to bring us water. However, our server was quite nice and personable! Our meals were excellent! We would definitely order the, again! We even indulged in the decadent mud pie!

Server was forgetful, slow to return despite a light crowd, blamed the bar for backups in orders, and messed up the dessert request for no nuts because of a allergy. Floor needed vacuuming. Only one bathroom was working, yet no one on staff seemed to care that people were lined up and alternating sexes for entry into the toilet. One stall had water all over the floor. Food was great, view is pretty, but disappointed we all were with the experience.

This was my 3rd year wedding anniversary and my wife asked to go here. We were seated in a beautiful area, in front of the fire place and the noise level was minimum. The evening started off great. We ordered drinks and then placed our order with our waitress Aniah (i believe that's her name). I ordered their 3-course meal and my wife had the halibut with couscous. We waited some time for the food to arrive, but nothing conversation didn't make up for. Prior to the dinner arriving, our waitress checked in on us to see if we needed anything. Our finally dinner arrived and I realized I never got my soup (1st meal of the three course). Mid dinner she finally returns and I told her I never got my soup. She brought it over and it wasn't good at all. I then asked my wife about her food and she didn't like that couscous. We informed the waitress of our dislike and asked to have the cream spinach instead. My wife was concerned her fish would be cold, so she asked is there a way to keep the fish warm? The waitress responded and said I can get you mashed potatoes instead since it's quicker. She never paid attention because we had a bowl of mashed potatoes on the table. I also request salt and pepper. When she returns about 10min later with the spinach, she ask is there anything else and I replied just the salt and pepper I've been waiting for. By that time the food was cold the night was just about ruined and for this to be our 3yr anniversary it wasn't a great experience at all. We requested to speak with the manager and Christine was very nice and attentive. She gave my wife another piece of fish to go. I don't know if the waitress was tired or just wasn't as attentive as she should have been, but I feel like we need a redo for our anniversary. That night was not the best at all.

Managed to get a table outside which was nice as it was a beautiful night, I had the Salmon my friend had a steak, everything was good, I would have liked my salmon cooked a little longer, it wasn't really cooked evenly, it was still good, just not my preference. Service was excellent.

We always enjoy the prime rib, cooked to perfection....but be very specific in communicating your meat doneness preference,

Normally the Lava Cake is delicious but on this occasion was not served hot. It must have been sitting for a while. However, our table of four consumed it quite easily.

All in all, we were very pleased with the Chart House in Old Town. The view is outstanding.

Herb crusted salmon was ok. It could have been cooked a little longer and seasoned a little more.

Menu was inaccurate. Food was overpriced. Mahi tasted good but had to describe a type of preparation for it, sides were lacking. Partner had chicken, overpriced for the preparation type. Ordered oysters, one shell was essentially missing an oyster.

I would come here again in a heart beat. Beautiful view on the water. Server was super friendly. Food was really delicious for the value. Can't beat eating right on the water. If you have a little one, go early when no when is there and it's enjoyable.

Great time! Made reservations which allowed for quick seating based on preference. Food, service and environment was ideal for a nice outing with close family/friends. Meal selections a slightly limited though. So you should probably review menu prior to making reservations to ensure the selections meet expectations.
