Food was mostly good. Not a place to order steak, however. After sending it back once, it still wasn’t medium rare. Ended up eating around the edges and taking the center home.

The atmosphere was lovely. Being on the water & having a window seat request honored was excellent!! The food was superb. We had a drink before dinner & the waiter kindly, & properly, timed our dinner to accommodate our drink, then a trip to an elegant & delicious salad bar. Our main courses were cooked to perfection. Everything, including the sides, were tasty. Totally recommend this restaurant !!!

First time to Chart house in probably 15 years and forgot what we were missing. Great food and service and seated us exactly on time. Even found parking but spaces were quit narrow. Little surprised they didn't have valet service but maybe they don't need it since it was a Saturday night.

Went for the Valentines dinner. The special menu was an excellent option for two. The crab soup was easily the best part of the dinner. Services was excellent, and our seating for a water view of Annapolis was amazing.

We enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent and the service was good. We had to wait an extra 15mins even though we had a reservation and arrived 10mins early. Will go again as the service is usually more stellar.

We had a reservation for 9pm. We arrived 10 minutes earlier and the host told us to get a drink at the bar while they get our table ready. We waited 45 minutes and we finally were seated. I ordered a prime rib cooked rare. It arrived a red from the outside almost uncooked but dry as a piece of wood. They got a replacement (filet) of the same quality but covered in seasoning. Don't go here!

Would recommend to a friend, just not on a holiday. Me and my fiance have been to the Chart House the last 3 years on Valentines day. We live in Parkville, MD so it's a decent trip but well worth it. This is the first year we were incredibly unhappy with the overall experience. Every year there is at least a 15-20 min. wait, sometimes longer. This is the first year we went and there were FAR TOO MANY tables packed into the dining room. We can honestly say if seating is like that next year, we will not be back.

I understand creating more seats to fulfill the demand of reservation but please take into consideration the poor experience your guest will experience when they are half an arms length away for the guest next to them. Small tables with limited amount of room for food and not enough room in between tables for the waiters/waitresses to get through made for an unpleasant experience and one we will not be back for if it isn't changed back.

Been on multiple occasions and have had positive experiences yet this Valentine’s Day they were extremely slow and even with a reservation waited 30 min past my time just to get seated. I understand things happen but since they can call to verify the reservation you would think they can call to inform you of the back up.

On Valentines Day, we had a 7:45 PM reservation. We arrived about five minutes early and were told "there is about a 15 minute wait". Never heard of having a reservation at an upscale restaurant and having to wait. Food was good. Server was good too, but they seemed to be understaffed and a bit overwhelmed.

We had a reservation and we were told to wait for 15 minutes but ended up waiting for 30 minutes which isn't suppose to be. As per the seat, I requested a waterfront view and of all the nicer areas to seat they've given us a table in a room which is probably the ugliest. Food was good especially the tropical salsa toppings. We paid $130 which isn't bad but nothing was really phenomenal. Hopefully once we try it again we'll experience better than this.

Everything was good, but we had to wait nearly half an hour to get seated, despite having a reservation. We still had a great time, but they definitely didn’t estimate correctly how long each table would take for Valentine’s Day dinner.

Crab cakes were awful. Honestly I didn’t taste any crab at all. It reminded me if the crabless crab cakes that you can purchase in the frozen section at supermarkets. Worst I’ve ever tasted.

Awesome valentine diner. The food was the best and our waiter was good, a little slow but we didn't need him hanging over us ether. We come to the Chart House 3 or 4 times a year but this visit was the best in recent memory. We will be coming back.

We made a reservation for 6:45... we asked for a window... we were seated 20 min late and were given a booth .. not even a minute after we sat down a window table opened and then another 6 min after that... since we were already 20 min late seating , she could have asked if we wanted to wait another min. She was not very friendly. The wait was great. I had crab cakes which were very disappointing... especially for a restaurant in Maryland . Also the drinks ( martinis) were small, not even 3/4 up the glass. It wasn’t a crowded evening, so I expected better ... very disappointing ...

We have always been pleased with chart house in the past; but, not this time. Perhaps because it was a Saturday and every table was full that the service was not up to par. Out food god not arrive at the same time do some were eating while others waited. My cream of crab soup arrived cold and others complained of cold plates as well. The noise was difficult to talk over too. We will not return in a weekend.
