I was a little disappointed. Always thought this was supposed to be a great place but it was just so so Average entree is about 35 which isn't too bad but the food wasn't all that special. I probably wouldn't go back if I was paying.

The food is amazing and the attention of the staff are without equal. If you are... More

Our New Years Day dinner was great. Chart House has the best view of the river with the USS New Jersey in full view. We asked for a table towards the window which was perfect. The food was excellent; my partner had the swordfish which was perfect, I had the salmon a tad bit overdone but very tasty. The food... More

The view of the Delaware River and the retired battleship USS New Jersey (now a museum) is breathtaking from your table. But the food is nothing but delicious. I highly recommend the salad bar, along with the stuffed shrimp.

Full disclosure: we came here after dinner for drinks and dessert, so i cannot comment on their actual dinner food since i didn't try it. What i can say about this place is that it has truly stunning views of the river and the ambience is quite lovely as a result. We sat at the bar, and it felt like... More

Everything from the start was terrible, service(spilled soda on my phone), appetizers tasted like a mess for lack of a better description (calamari mixed with who knows what). Spring rolls tasted like imitation crab meat that was spoiled. Prime rib tasted like bologna, not good bologna either. My wife's stuffed flounder tasted very "fishy" too and was tough to cut...

Went there with family and friends for a birthday party. We had to speak with the manager several times, my cousin found a piece of receipt in her water (she didn't notice until she drink all the water), the not so great food came out late. We quickly realized why the place was so empty on a Saturday night.

We live practically across the street from here and are life-long philadephians - we know many of the good restaurants in town and this is definitely not one of them - tourist trap- over priced -- shabby decor.... Beautiful view and setting. So, we decided to try it since we recently moved to the neighborhood - food just average -... More

We ordered the Wicked Tuna appetizer which consists of - ahi tacos, tartare & pepper seared. We thoroughly enjoyed this appetizer. My husband ordered the Gluten Free Omission beer Lager which was very good and I ordered Stoli Raspberry with Chambered and sprite and my drink was delicious. We stopped in prior to our dinner on the Spirit of Philadelphia... More
