The food seemed of fine quality, but everything was reported to be sort of bland. The 9 oz fillet wasn't 9 oz. For the crab cake recipe, the chef may want to visit Pappas in the MGM to see the real Maryland-style crab cakes. The prime rib was cooked perfectly, but again not well seasoned. Stuffed shrimp was ok. The fish dishes were best received.

Both of us had the cream of crab, Atlantic salmon with rice and roasted veggies, and key lime pie for dessert. Portions were generous for lunch --- in fact, we were sorry we hadn't split a single order of key lime pie. Our server was perfect. Attentive but not hovering. I absolutely loved my food, though it could have used a bit more spice and herbs. We had window seating, and the half-frozen river offered a rather exotic appearance. Looking forward to returning!

Attended to celebrate two birthdays just days apart. The food was very good and we were seated by a window overlooking the Potomac. The Service was fantastic. Chart House is a good place to celebrate special occasions.

Celebrated my husband's birthday here. He loved it. The food was lovely and my shellfish allergy was accommodated without any fuss... big deal to us. The atmosphere was really nice. Our only complaint was that we sat by the window and it was really cold.

The Chart House, Alexandria has the most wonderful location, on the river front. It is ideal to get a window table in winter or pick outdoor seating in warmer weather.
