Everything was great except the Snapper Hemingway. I'd have preferred fish sticks at home to what we both had as an expensive entree. Can't beat the Chart House ambiance, view or bar. Dinner was disappointing but didn't ruin the evening.

Was given a gift card for Christmas, wife and I had a night out with no children so we decided to use it. We arrived early and sat at the bar had a few drinks while we waited. Drinks were decent, a little light for the money imo. When we were seated our server introduced herself and disappeared for 10 min. Then came back and disappeared again. Finally took our order and didn't see her again till she brought the food out.
Wife ordered prime rib medium (I told her not to get prime rib she like her steak well done) it came out what I would consider rare (how I would have ordered the prime rib) but she ate it, wasn't happy about it though. I got oysters Rockefeller they were decent. Had a lot of grit in them from bad opening technique. I also got the stuffed flounder which was very good.
All and all the atmosphere was good for a "romantic" date but the price was not worth it for the food. A few drinks, an appetizer dinner and dessert and we were into it for $195 with tip. We could have gone to fishermans for the same exact thing for less than $100.

We had a wonderful dining experience at the Chart House. They are one of our favorites. We went there New Years Eve, too and enjoyed a wonderful dinner! Always great service. Last night our server was Erin and she was very pleasant and accommodating making our evening even more enjoyable.

Service could have been better, our server was not prompt with refills on water or bread rarely check to see if we were doing Ohk. Other than that, we had a good dinning experience.

This place is a regular place for me. Either alone or with a date/guest. Salad bar is excellent. View is nice, and a couple gas fireplaces makes it cozy in winter months. Great view of water.

The Chart House was amazing, once again. The wife and I had a cozy table right next to one of their fireplaces on a very cold night. Server was attentive and very friendly. There was a slight delay with our food and even though we never complained a bit, the manager and server both apologized profusely. Ultimately the manager compd are entire bill, again without a single complaint from us. They hold themselves to a high standard even when their customers don't mind a slight hickup. This shows the high level of service they expect to provide to every guest. We will definitely go back!

Unfortunately we had a dreadful dinner, the service was extremely poor from the start. We ordered cocktails and a beer. The beer bottle was placed on the table, no glass, no offer of a glass. We had to wait 1.5 hours for dinner to be served after ordering in a timely fashion. Once dinner was served is was apparent that the plates had been sitting for awhile. All 4 dinners were cool, the salmon was extremely dry and tough, with a few drops of the mustard sauce, the fingerling potatoes were hard and cold, they were difficult to cut with a knife, obviously they had been sitting for a while and re-heated many times. The rice on the other plates was cold. The rockfish special was also cold. A very expensive disappointing meal.

Unfortunately we were unable to eat at the chart house on New Year’s Eve. We reserved a table for 11:15, by 11:45 we were not seated, I understand that New Year’s eve is a busy day but why when I looked on OpenTable they still had open reservations available but were not able to seat us.

New Year's Eve at this Annapolis location was outstanding, given it's waterfront view for the fireworks show. There's likely some history to the venue, as I can recognize it's old bones as a former boat house. We had a reservation, but still waited over twenty-five minutes to be seated. Our server was outstanding, attentive, and not pushy on the up-sell for apps or deserts (some servers can suggest with the right tone, but most don't even try). Generally, our food was good, but all over Maryland, the crab cakes are much better than the ones I got. Overall, we enjoyed our visit and the experience, but I think Chart House charges more than they deserve. I'm not a regular patron, and probably never will be.

I asked for no sauce on my crabcakes and the server acted like that would not be a problem but when I got my meal there was sauce on the crabcakes. I feel that it is the servers job to look at what was ordered and what is being served to make sure it is correct. There also was other mishaps with other food in my party. I feel like we could have gotten the same service and food for much less at another restaurant.

We always have our NYE Date at a Chart House. We were married in Laguna Beach and had our wedding reception at the Chart House in Dana Point, CA. We often go to Chart House restaurants when we travel. This year as usual the service and food was wonderful. We were disappointed with having to wait to be seated at our table until 8:30. Our reservation was for 8:00. The bar was very busy and the lobby seating was full with a busy walk in clientele. We were first told it would just be a couple minutes which was fine because we arrived five minutes early. I went to inquire about our seating at 8:15 and was then told it would anoth ten to fifteen minutes. We were finally seated at 8:30.

Chart House in Annapolis never disappoints. We've eaten many times over the last 12 years and always leave more than satisfied with every aspect of our visit. The Maize Shrimp and Scallops is likely one of the best dishes I have ever eaten.

Our waiter was really knowledgeable, and when they ran out of the wine I wanted, he was quick to suggest something similar and equally as delicious. The food was decent, but pricey--lava cake was definitely worth the $11.50.

The Chart House was not my first choice! I tried to get a reservation at Carroll's Creek, but their reservations were filled. We were given a small table for 7 people. The table had a table cloth over it, so we did not see the condition of the table before we sat down. We realized as we sat down and were being served water that the table was wobbly and seriously sloping to one side. Apparently, this table was a 4 sided table with fold up sides to make it a round table. The fold-up sides were not stable and sloped down badly on one side. Therefore 4 customers had to be VERY careful when served beverages and plates filled with food, because you could easily wind up with your drinks and food in your lap. Fortunately, this did not happen. We mentioned the problem to the waiter and 'maitre d', and all they could say was, that a new table was on order and would be delivered at the end of the week. Our fare was $250.00, therefore we paid good money for inferior service and food. There were no apologies offered by anyone attached to the restaurant. I will NOT return to CHART HOUSE Annapolis.

Disappointed,

Dr. George A. Rounsaville

We were seated at an awesome table but our server was never present. She took 15 mins to great us and then barely checked on us the entire dinner. Also when it was time for the check we waited a long time. We didn’t have any appetizers and dinner took 2.5 hours. That seemed ridiculous!

We have been dinning at the Chart House in Annapolis for over 40 years. It's not the same Chart House of years ago. Two years ago I ordered the sirloin and crab cake. The crab cakes are not Maryland style and have a relish on top that is not to my liking. The cake has a lot of filler/breading to it that kinda reminded my of a croquette. This year I order the crab cake again thinking I shouldn't judge from just one try. The cake was the same and I did not finish it. The sirloin was very good. Also my wife tried the Ahi Tuna dinner which was very good. My friends often eat from the happy hour menu and ordered the prime rib sliders. They really enjoy the sliders. As always the view was beautiful and the service was very good. Just don't get the crab cakes they will disappoint if you are from Maryland.

It’s not what it used to be, but the food was very good. The service continues on its decline after the remodel. Apparently our waiter ran away before we saw him, but another appeared eventually and seemed eager to help. He was funny, and seemed like a genuinely nice guy, but it was obvious he was overwhelmed with the volume. We never heard the specials, which is disappointing for regular guests since we’ve had everything on the regular menu, weren’t even offered bread until after our food came and it was yet another waitress who offered that. Ali was amazing. She wasn’t our waitress, but she worked the floor like a champ and picked up the slack for the rest of the dining staff as much as she could. She gave us more attention than our actual waiter, asking if we would like bread when she noticed we didn’t have any, offering dessert while our waiter just brought the check. Again, great food and there’s hope in the service department (we’ll just ask for Ali next time).

Bar service and drinks were excellent. Happy hour food was good. When seated in restaurant, seating was in dark corner. Food was over cooked and over priced for what was served. Only bright spot was our fabulous waiter who shared his life experience coming here from El Salvador. Will do happy hour here again, but definitely not dinner in the restaurant.
