My husband and I stopped by on a recent Sunday, and given that it was a bit cool outside, opted to sit at a table in the bar. Food was delicious! Shawn was our waiter and he was terrific - patient, good-natured, very attentive.

You cannot beat the location of this restaurant as it is right on the river and it is a very pretty setting. The salad bar alone is worth it and they make a lot of really good appetizers.

Went here on a lovely sunny day but a 20minute wait for outside tables so we chose to eat inside. Menu was interesting but the service was slow, pleasant but slow and it wasn't busy.

Chart House is considered by most to be fine dining. And although the ambiance and environment are welcoming in that sense, their customer service is slightly lacking. Having visited on a very busy Saturday, our waitress was pleasant and amicable. Unfortunately, she wasn't familiar with the menu nor options for substitutions, additions, etc. She constantly had to go back to... More

Excellent seafood, great views of the Potomac and outstanding service. The salad bar was wonderful, reservations are probably a good idea.

The restaurant is beautifully located on the Chesapeake River. My mom and I ordered from the lunch menu. I ordered the salmon burger and she had the steak sandwich. The food was okay, nothing special-especially for the price. However, it could have just been what we ordered.

Appetizers and drinks at the Chart House bar. Great view of the Potomac. Bloody Mary and Mojito were tasty. Chopped salad was finely chopped and more than just lettuce. Crab dip was good, but needed a bit more crabmeat.

Wonderful place for a romantic dinner. The kimchi calamari was awesome and the mocha cake was divine.
