Overall, it was ok. The food was good. The mud pie for dessert was very good. Several times we had to remind the waiter to bring things we had asked for. We were seated at a table where around 20 or so people passed by each minute. That was pretty distracting.

This was our first time dining at the Chart House Annapolis. The experience was phenomenal. The food was great, the atmosphere was relaxing and Jon being our server was the absolute best part of our dining experience. He was professional, pleasant and attentive.

I would definitely recommend going here. My husband took me here for my birthday and they printed out a Happy Birthday menu for us. Their gluten free menu was amazing and the services was excellent. My only complaint was that we requested a window seat and we did not get a seat near the window. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was amazing.

Despite a steady decline in quality, we've been coming to Chart Houses for 25+ years as it was the site of our first date. This visit was terrible, seriously the worst service experience in memory. It was packed and we arrived 45 minutes before our res, but weren't able to be seated until our confirmed time, no biggie at all. We sat and our waitress immediately asked if we were ready to order, at least drinks and noted that if we wanted [lava cake?] dessert we'd have to order it in advance because it takes xx minutes. We said we needed some time to look at the menus. She returned just a couple of minutes later and we opted to order drinks. She again asked us hurriedly if we were ready to order appetizers or dinners and noted again that if we wanted desert we'd have to order it now. We literally were not in our seats for five minutes. It was patently obvious that she (and management?) wanted to get us in and out as quickly as [in]humanly possible. She brought our drinks another 4-5 minutes later while we were looking at the menu and still perusing our options. She dropped the drinks off and I breathed a sigh of relief that she didn't start her fast talking spiel about dessert there's better food & service elsewhere, including cheaper establishments with the same view.

I have dined here in the past. This meal wasn't as good as in the past; maybe it was what I chose? The fish was dry. The ambiance is always great. The bar music was too loud.

The fish was fabulous; fresh, well prepared and delicious. Between 5 of us we tried the salmon, halibut and sword fish, all prepared differently. One was better than the next. It was a busy night and staff hustled food out. It took awhile to get our entrees but we were entertained with cocktails and appetizers which were all very good. All in all it was a great evening and sold dining experience. We brought friends from out of town. They were not disappointed and neither were we.

It was not a “Wow” for the money we spent we were expecting the service to be much more attentive and genuine. I would say that we will pick another place for a real special occasion.

This was the worst experience I have had in a long time. It received great reviews from other but I went on a slow night and it was still bad. I had to wait 45 minutes to get a drink and this is from having a reservation. Then, I ordered a dessert that was going to take 20 minutes to make which I wanted first before my dinner. In fact I received my entree first then my desert 48 minutes after that. So, we sat there for 1-1/2 before received our dinner. This was a special night for my Fiancé and I for her birthday. WOULD NEVER Recommend this place to anyone. I already told people this is not the place to go for a special occasion. On top of that I had a new waitress without any assistance either from the manager , to co-workers. Training is supposed to TOP priority and it definitely was not. I had to flag down the manager who only walked the floor a twice the whole 2-1/2 hours we were there. Never again!!!

So surprised at the poor level of service. We hosted a business dinner there and the server was absolutely horrible. Left us alone in between appetizers and ordering our meal for ~45 minutes in a empty setting (Tuesday evening). Other servers saw we were alone and walked right by seeing our glasses empty and food finished. They finally escorted our server to our table to take the order. It was obvious there was some drinking or smoking going on. I will never take a valued guest to this location again.

We had an amazing 75th Birthday dinner for my mother and the staff couldn’t have been more considerate and attentive. We had custom menus and a perfect table for 5. I really appreciate the customer service at this Chart House. Thank you so much for making our special dinner so memorable. And the food was outstanding!

It was slightly overpriced for what I received food wise. The fish that I had was phenomenal! The sides however, were lackluster. The vegetables had no flavor and the rice came from a steam bag and lacked flavor.
