    Chart House

    Chart House
    Located in the four-story brick Gardner Building, which dates back to the 1760's. The building once housed the offices of American patriot John Hancock, was a former salt house, is one of the oldest buildings in Boston, and is the oldest building still in use on the Boston waterfront. A multi-million dollar renovation was completed in 2000 to restore and update this historic location, and it received the 2001 Massachusetts Historical Commission Preservation Award.

    Chart House: Excellent, simply excellent.

    by Steve_travel Updated Jul 7, 2004

    Excellent steak and excellent seafood. Porbably one of the more expensive eateries in Boston, but by far the finest. Would be in my all-time worldwide top five. The setting is superb and the building is over 240 years old.

    Favorite Dish: Whatever you have try and accompany it with a bottle of Pine Ridge Chardonnay - devine!

    The Chart House: Good food in historical site

    by donforse Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Located on the Long Wharf, The Boston Chart House is located in the Gardiner Building which dates back to the 1760s. The building once housed the offices of American patriot John Hancock, and is the oldest building still in use on historic Long Wharf.

    During dinner, servers will offer up a brief historical background of the building and the various things it hosted prior to, during and after the American Revolution.

    The restaurant is quite busy as the Long Wharf is now home to a vibrant commercial district with many restaurants and shops, so expect a long wait. I would recommend waiting in the nicely appointed bar which serves all varieties of the local Samuel Adams ale.

    Favorite Dish: You can't stay in Boston without having some clam chowder and Boston creme pie. Both of these were excellent.

    Located on Commercial Warf, the Chart house excels in fine meats, especially their prime rib. Yes, it is expensive, but worth a nice dinner on the town.

    Favorite Dish: Prime rib
