Blackwall Hitch Ratings and Reviews
My friend and I enjoyed a great girls brunch on Saturday. We originally went for the restaurant week menu but opted for the regular menu instead. Our server Shelton was all smiles and very accommodating. The hostess was pleasant and gave us a tour of the restaurant and private dining spaces.
Definitely recommend this place!
Had a very nice dinner during restaurant week. I got the lump crab mac & cheese and it was AWESOME! My girlfriend got the shrimp & grits and it was also very good. Being restaurant week we took advantage of the special 3 course meal and we both left stuffed, so our decision to walk was a good one. I can't remember our server's name but she was GREAT! Very helpful with recommendations, very attentive throughout our meal, and she knew better than us and suggested we sit and wait for the meal to settle before she brought the desert. When we were ready we just let her know and the plates showed up in no time.
Overall I would definitely suggest that anyone try this place and I can't wait to go back during warmer weather to dine outside!
Visited for my wife's birthday. Specifically requested a dessert with a candle for my wife. They never even acknowledged it was her birthday nor was there any type of dessert offered.
We ordered the calamari for our appetizer. It was good, but the breading was very salty. For the main course my wife got the steak which she liked. I got the fish & chips. The chips were good but the fish was soggy. Definitely left a lot to be desired.
Ambiance is nice. Table was wobbly. Service was poor and unattentive. Draft beer was not working. Steak was overcooked. We were hoping for better. We'll give it another chance in a month, but if the 2nd chance is anything like this past weekend we will not be back a 3rd time.
We walked into the restaurant on a whim without a reservation. We were immediately told that they were all booked and unless we had a reservation there wasn't any tables available. We walked outside and I pulled up my OpenTable app to see where we could make a quick reservation for lunch. To my surprise Blackwall Hitch had an available reservation in 15 minutes and several after that! We walked back inside to be asked if we just made the reservation and I said yes. We were treated rather rudely by the hostess. But was seated. I am not sure how many other people the hostess stand turned away or turned off from dining at the restaurant
Once we were seated everything changed when our server Regina took over. She was fabulous! The food was delicious and the service was excellent
Our waitress announced to the table that she had been there since 10am. Uh oh. Then when she opened our bottle of wine, she spilled it everywhere. She just said, oops. Didn't bring a new bottle after spilling out a lot of it. My husband thought she should have. Dinner was very good and so was the desserts.
Loved the atmosphere and food but I have some complaints. The wine by the glass list was very unimpressive and overpriced. Everything is very pricey and they had served us an appetizer, drink and entrée, all within 37 minutes. At that point, I had to slow the waitress down before even trying to get us to commit to dessert. This restaurant is very hectic and for the price, they need to slow things down. On the plus side, there's something for everybody's mood on the menu, from burgers to seafood. The dessert list is great and the design of the restaurant is very cool and fun.
The staff seemed to be overwhelmed. One would expect Valentine's Day to be properly staff for a large showing. Reservations were made well in advance, but we still had to wait for more than 45 minutes for a table. There was no indication when I made the reservation that the menu would be a pre-fixed menu and price. That's not a surprise one is pleased to receive. We did not let the wait or the high price spoil our evening, though. The waitress, Atira, did comp us one drink each for the length of time it took for our dinner to be served. She was great the entire evening. I do want to go back for the full menu as the food was delicious. I probably will not go on a high volume night.
Great bar area. Friendly bar tenders. Don't understand the hosts. We showed up an hour early for our rez, happily had drinks in the bar but 30 minutes after our rez time, they were seating people who just arrived but didn't have a table for us. You'd think waiting 1.5 hours would get you a pretty good table, but it didn't. We were seated in an alcove with a couple of table and no ambiance.
For a party of four, I made reservations for Valentine's Day Dinner. We were seated at a table that had couch-like bench seats on each side. The seats were extremely broken down and uncomfortable, worse than grandma's sofa, making the table about chest high. With the crowd, there were no other table alternatives. Though dinner was tasty and the service was good, the food portions were at best minimal. The 'Jumbo Shrimp' appetizer was four small shrimp, each about 1 inch long, the 'Bowl of Chowder' was estimated to be about 4 ounces, perhaps a half cup, the lamb chops were each about 2 ounces, and the chocolate cake dessert was the size of a Reese's peanut butter cup with a dollop of whipped cream. Yes, I understand portion control, but for $80.00... We had several martinis and two bottles of wine to help tolerate the seats, but at the end of the evening there was little good to say about the experience. 20+ years of many dinners out in Annapolis, I can't recall one that I enjoyed less... I'm only expressing an opinion of the food that I was served. -Perhaps too embarrassed to ask my guests what their thoughts were.
I thought the restaurant was good, however I did not enjoy the prefixed menu for Valentine's Day. My husband got the filet mignon on which he likes his steak cooked medium and they didn't ask so it was medium rare, the potatoes were raw. I didn't love my meal, I got the seafood pasta. The scallops were so tiny you could barely even taste them and the shrimp was overcooked. The restaurant was very pretty we were seated fast and our waiter was very friendly. I plan to try this restaurant again without the fixed menu
It was our first time dining at this location and seriously the food, the experience, the ambiance, the service, everything was just absolutely phenomenal and a night to remember just celebrating our good friends engagement! Thank you so much for accommodating our needs! You guys ROCK!!!
Great meal with friends. My wife's prime rib was outstanding and the rest of group all had wonderful seafood dishes. The cookie in a skillet with ice cream is great to share. And finally the appetizer of flaming saganaki is a fun dish to share. We will certainly return to Blackwall Hitch
Service started out slow to start, but once wait staff attended - things rolled.
My biggest issue was that the bench seats sit really low. They need to be raised.
This was a brunch meal. Food was excellent. Best Omelette station around. And I personally like the oysters.
Always wished that the brunch jazz band was in the dining area and not the bar area.
Restaurant was pretty full and the noise level was high. Conversation across the table was often difficult. The food was good, but overpriced. There were three steaks ordered at our table, one of which was ordered rare and the other two medium rare. They were ALL extremely rare.
The band was fun and danceable, but again, the bar prices were pretty steep. Not sure the the "bang for buck" ratio was great.
For a New Years Eve reservation, the restaurant failed to state, at reservation time, that they were providing a prix fixe menu only. They failed to state the price of said menu was $150 per couple not including beverages or tip. After being seated, our waitress gave us this news and when we finally stopped laughing, she rolled her eyes because apparently we were not the only diners who had been duped like this. So we got up and walked down the street to the Chart House for a great meal.
Showed up a little before our reservation time and were seated right away. The restaurant got pretty busy after 7 pm on a Thursday evening, but our waitress stayed plenty attentive. Food was great, we loved the decor, and will hopefully return in the future!
Accommodated our party of 8 at a moments notice and provided fantastic service (and food!) to my family.
Have also attended a baby shower and birthday party in the upstairs private room and they did an outstanding job of taking care of everyone. Love this place!
