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

When our server mentioned if you are interested in the soufflé, you need to let him know when he took our entree order since it takes 30 minutes to bake. I love dessert and knowing what I would order when I ordered my entree was perfect for me. I shared the dessert with hubby and we both thought the light... More

Hit this place up for a super joyous Happy Hour and a great view of the Delaware River! Shrimp Tacos are a 10 The Hummus is Heavenly! HH deals are a great value.

This was my second time eating at Chart House and again it did not disappoint. The restaurant is well situated with wonderful river views & attentive services. Some say this is an expensive restaurant but I don't think it is I thought it well priced. We all very much enjoyed our dining experience here, they have a wonderful selection of... More

I had dinner with a large group (maybe 25 people) and I thought the meal and the service was really quite good. Those with me also enjoyed their dinners very much -- we could choose among three entrees (salmon, chicken, and prime rib) and there were no complaints.

I had the occasion to have dinner here recently and the last time I was here was over 10 years ago. At that time, I really did not appreciate the cuisine which left me as being fair. This time around the curies was differently better. For a restaurant that primarily serves seafood, it is somewhat of a short selection including... More

I treated my family to this expensive restaurant situated on the Delaware River at Penss Landing. I thought it was going to be a wonderful experience and it was over our budget but you only live once so we went for it. We were literally the first ones there when it opened at 4:30 but were not served until 5:30;... More
