The restaurant has a fantastic view, the staff is courteous and the food is pretty good; however, we ordered a couple of appetizers, which were relatively good with the exception of the calamari; it was rubbery and a bit greasy.

This restaurant is an amazing place to have dinner. Several kinds of seating (deck, restaurant, and a special nook with a great view and fireplace). Our server took care of us. The food was outstanding. Stuffed shrimp was great and coconut shrimp was delicious. We...More

Good seafood and a great view. There was about ten of us and we had a reservation, so getting a table was no issue. You might want to make a reservation to guarantee a table. Easy to get to from D.C. with metro and a...More

Parking is close by - street parking if you can find it, or the public garage.

They serve cold water lobster tails....I don't remember seeing a lobster tank at the Chart House. Calling the restaurant directly may be the best way to answer your question.
