All events at Chart House are unique, with spectacular views and world class service. We cater to wedding rehearsal dinners, Bridal Showers, Engagement Parties, and Day After lunches and brunches; we have a number of semi-private spaces available to suite your needs! Please note that while we love our wedding events, our venue does not have the capabilities for a dance floor, DJ, or amplified music/sound in our semi-private spaces, so please keep that in mind while searching for your perfect reception spot!
Each of our event spaces have a great view of the Potomac waterfront. Our smallest space seats up to 26, and largest space seats up to 125! Spaces can be combined to give your group an even larger area of the restaurant as well. Hosting a wedding reception for 200+ guests? We can also arrange for a full buyout of the restaurant, which would allow for a more traditional reception with music, dance floor and DJ! Please reach out for more information regarding a full buyout of the venue.
As the hometown of George Washington, Alexandria and its surrounding areas are no stranger to history. Washington, D.C., beautiful Mount Vernon, Arlington Cemetery and the National Masonic Temple are all just minutes away. But despite these famous landmarks and all of the legends that have traveled the waters of the Potomac River, Chart House Alexandria is still the sight to see.
Diners at Chart House Alexandria experience the city's best view of the river. Before or after their visit, guests have access to famous Old Town sites such as Robert E. Lee's boyhood home, George Washington's Townhouse and Market Square, one of the oldest market places in the whole country. The restaurant is easily accessible to the local King Street Hotels via a free trolley service!

My experience at the Chart house was fantastic. Amanda, the Catering Sales Manager was great during our whole process of celebrating my engagement party. Her communication via email was always quick, speedy, and responsive. If any questions arose about the set up of tables came or other questions, her response was always in a timely manner with information that I had requested.Sent on 05/05/2018
At our event, My fiance and I had a great time. Along with Amanda, we really appreciated Porsha and Jose's time working our event as servers. I never had an empty hand or a dirty plate at my table. Our guests had a great time and could only say great things about the venue space. They also complemented that the food was delicious. The raw bar was fantastic and highly recommend for anyone to have at their event. Amanda's suggestion of how much food we needed was on point, as well as her thoughts on how to organize the tables set up. We asked her for a focal table, just as I had asked she put the focal table in a perfect location. Right where my guests were able to see it as they walked in to the space. We also asked for high top tables and she pulled through with high top tables with low top tables in the different spaces. The arrangement of the tables were perfect for the event. For the amount of guests we had, we ordered the right amount of food. Shout out to the cook!! Needless to say, thank you Amanda for helping set up and organizing everything perfectly to my taste.
We ended up renting the upstairs room and definitely recommend that space for those who want privacy and space to spread out with their guests. I Thought the noise from downstairs would be a bother, but honestly could not hear anything downstairs. I would definitely celebrate another event there.

Destination Wedding Dinner
We planned our wedding day from Minnesota to be in Old Town Alexandria and Washington D.C. We stayed in a hotel close to this venue. We were able to take the water taxi from the National Mall over the Potomac River to the Chart house for dinner after our wedding. The views were amazing! When we arrived our dinner room was overlooking the water and was set up for us with a very elegant feel there was no need to decorate! They provided a specialized menu catered to our needs, being gluten free this was very helpful. We had specialty drinks made by the staff that was like watching a fun show being performed! It was so much fun. We were able to take the trolley back to our hotel after dinner was complete. The ease of having our wedding dinner here was so worth it!Sent on 07/01/2019
