Lackluster offering for its namesake!

Unlike its brethren in Cardiff by the Sea, CA or the Grove at Bayshore in Miami – and despite its incredible location right on the Potomac waterfront in Old Town, this CH lacks the luster, finesse and quality its near legendary national namesakes entertain! Although I cannot score their culinary offerings highly on the scale, I can say it is a unique location, unequaled ambience and extraordinary views at the Old Town Wharf! Their service and attention to detail is pretty good although somewhat inconsistent, and the seafood renderings about average. If you are looking for exquisite seafood you may consider better offerings in Northern Virginia, and only a stone’s throw away – for the price! We frequent CH a few times a year, primarily for appetizers (which are very good) and their fantastic bar selections. Few places in Old Town offer better mixed cocktails than that of the CH Bar, and the libations are enhanced by the view and atmosphere. Their renditions of the classics Mojitos and Martinis, not to mention some of their specialties are beyond reproach and they do not skimp on the main ingredients! Albeit, the prices are a little high for the libations, the occasional splurge at the riverside may be worth it!

Step up the service...

The Chart House continues to be a great spot for location and decent food, but the service is always too slow. When we arrive, they are never quick enough to get a drink order (so they lose out on at least one round of drinks…) There alwasys seems to be a lot of staff around, but they do not seem to be in a hurry to serve.

Cream of Crab Soup

The cream of crab soup is great. Nice balance of sherry without overpowering the dish.

Great place to eat

I love the Chart House. My wife and I eat there monthly and have always had a great experience. The food is great, the waiters are friendly and professional and the view is an excellent compliment to all of the above. 5 out of 5 stars.
