The service was excellent overall. We were quickly attended to and asked by other waiters to ensure somebody had already taken care of us. Our drinks were always refilled and the food was carefully done. Will definitely recommend and return.

We had a delicious meal at the bar which was nicely arranged to maintain appropriate social distancing while providing a sense of intimacy. The staff was welcoming and attentive. The cocktails were yummy and the wine selection good. Of all the things we’ve missed during the pandemic, safely a cocktails we’ll be back!

Food and service is always great but they ran out of champagne for the mimosas which is why I enjoy their brunch.

Our food was cold. I ordered chicken and waffle and it was good but everything was cold. By the time I wanted to tell the waiter it was too late. But the waiter was very friendly and out going.

Ordered the wings which had to be sent back as the first one but into was still red on the inside. Omelet was very flat and eggs were rubbery. Waffle and crab dip were very good.

The food was absolutely amazing. Our waiter Dennison was awesome. He was quite knowledgeable when it came to making decisions on what to order as a first timer. His level of service was impeccable. My family really enjoyed dining here and can’t wait to return.

Came for an end of year brunch with a friend. We usually come for the buffet brunch that’s now closed due to covid. The menu items were very good. The shrimp and grits were amazing. My friend had the steak and eggs that she enjoyed.


Although I miss the live jazz band they used to have I enjoyed everything.
Will definitely return.

Good atmosphere and quick service. The ribeye was not cooking consistently through. Parts of the steak were very rare all the way to medium.

Our server Stephanie was absolutely outstanding! She is responsible for the great review Blackwall Hitch is getting from my wife and I. She was amazing and anticipated our needs. Stephanie was friendly and energetic throughout our late Christmas Eve dinner.

Tonight my girl friend and I met up to exchange gifts and enjoy dinner and drinks. I had my two year old with me as well.

We came during happy hour and noticed that it was pretty empty and quiet. I wasn’t upset. They do a fantastic job social distancing and there are signs every where which is appreciated.

The service was amazing. Food came out quick and hot. Drink recommendations were on par! The moscato was so sweet I loved it!

My toddler devoured her pizza and the waiter ever brought her complimentary dessert which I thought was so sweet.

The view was also beautiful and memorable as we overlooked the water as the sun was setting. Would def like to come back and enjoy some more of their cuisine.

The quality and the price of the food didn't match the dish. The server send a little exhausted as he didn't even know the daily specials and it was 8:00 p.m. at night. The actual menu itself was interesting, maybe I just picked the wrong dish. I love the whole set above the restaurant and the view of the water.
