My husband asked me where I wanted to go for my birthday this year. Lobster and cheesecake are my absolute all time favorite foods to eat on my birthday and I just love the lobster at The Chart House so I said that is where I wanted to go.
The Chart House has been around for over 50 years. It has several locations across the United States. And we happe to have a location right here in Virginia located at 1 Cameron Street in Old Town Alexandria.
Located on the Potomac River, diners at Chart House Alexandria experience the city’s best view of the river. Whether dining outside on the patio or indoors, you experience gorgeous panoramic views of the waterfront and the sparkling city.
We started our meal with the salad bar. For the main course, I ordered the lobster with baked potato. The waiter even cracked the lobster for me so all I had to do was eat it.
My husband ordered the Snapper Hemingway, a parmesan encrusted snapper, topped with lump crab & lemon shallot butter, served with coconut ginger rice.
For dessert, Gary and I shared this chocolate ice cream dessert. I expected to have my favorite cheesecake, so I was a little disappointed that they didn’t have it on the menu.
