Food was great server was okay.
Food was good. Service was great. Weather was nice to sit outside. Overall great experience
We had a great waiter and she made sure we had everything we needed.
Noise level wasn't "energetic" -- it's TOO LOUD. It should be possible to have a normal conversation without having to fight against the loud speakers. Also, when the "music" you program is just "boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.....etc." it really detracts from the food, the service, and everything else that makes a restaurant an enjoyable experience. It wasn't exceptional, by US standards -- but nearly all US restaurants are too loud, which is what destroys the experience and why I eat out when in Europe, but not in the US when I can avoid it. Be a thought leader! Be Bold! Think DIFFERENT! (and be quiet......). :) Thanks for asking.
Food was mediocre
Excellent brunch spot. Food is fairly generic -- omelet station, carving station, raw bar, salad station, but servers are friendly and the crowd is fun. Musician was too loud and allowed off key singing which detracted from the dining experience. Hostess was inexperienced and took forever to find my Open table reservation. I suggest that Blackwall Hitch have more seasoned staff handle the Sunday Brunch rush.
Always a great time. Busy but organized. Lots of food safety measures are in place and adhered to;) Customer service is always good and with a smile. Several thingsngoing on at once but we were able to enjoy our conversations and still enjoy the music:) I've been coming there since they opened and is ALWAYS on my list of recommendations for ANY meal. Brunch or weekday dinner. Even your indoor dining has a great view just as well as outdoors:)
The restaurant is nice we have been coming for years for brunch the obvious is great the food is good but it’s a little pricey for a group of three we spent $270 drinks are really expensive but overall everything was nice I waiter was nice as well
The food was horrible and cold!!!!!!! Clearly there is a new chef and the food is no longer of the quality that I experienced prior to the Covid-19 crisis and shut down. This is my first time returning in over a year and I won’t be returning!!!!!
This was a very good place for a first date. The food was amazing.
I just love this place. Everything about it is good.
Service was slow. Food was great. Blueberry mules are mostly ginger beer. Place was very loud.
Food was great and great drinks
Food was fairly disappointing based on reviews
Justin was our Server and he was fantastic. friendly, attention to detail, great recommendations. The noise level was awful - I could not hear the colleagues on other side of table. I will only sit out side in the future or have to go elsewhere.
The food was terrible and extremely overpriced. I don’t mind paying high prices for high quality food but the fish was dried out and my friends salad was a pile of lettuce with some cold crab on top. Not good at all - won’t return.
Justin was a great server!
Very disappointed that the only options were from the buffet during a pandemic.
The atmosphere was nice and there was a good food selection. The only issue was the lines for me but when it’s a buffet that is what can happen, which caused the food to be lukewarm before sitting. We are plan on going back but not during brunch to get the full affects of the restaurant.
Always a great experience and the food was awesome as usual!
Most of the food was good like the crab dip and chicken wings, but not nearly worth the price. The peach & whipped honey goat cheese flat bread was abysmal, easily the worst we have ever had. The base was a paper thin pita with canned peaches and one tiny glob of cheese and no honey.
I would have given them 5 stars overall but the noise level was loud and made it very hard to hear our conversation. Evening thunderstorms prevented outdoor dining. Otherwise out food was great. We both had the Rockfish which is hard to find on menus these days.
Food wasn't good, even dishes I've had before didn't have any real taste to them. Our server was terrible, very absent, and when he did come over he tried to take away plates that we were still eating and drinks we were still drinking.
Very overpriced food that unfortunately lacked much flavor. However, the drinks and atmosphere were great! Our server was very pleasant and helpful with recommendations. She was rather busy however, and became less attentive over time.
My husband and I celebrated 19 years of marriage and went to Blackwall Hitch for the first time. The customer service was great and we will definitely recommend this restaurant. We will also return as there are other dishes that we look forward to eating!
When we arrived we were seated immediately. We waited for about 10 minutes before a waitress came over to us. We were served warm tap water and we set next to a group of people who were extremely loud. Outside of that the food was good the waitress was very nice. The music selection was great and the atmosphere was amazing.
Great time…great food.
My food wasn’t good at all. I feel like Blackwall Hitch has gone down in the quality of the food they serve. My food was just plain awful. I had to order something else and it was overloaded with salad dressing. The only thing that was good was the wine 🍷.
Uggh! I will not be going back until their food gets better. The server also messed up our bill. Just a mess!
The hostess did not appear knowledgeable of my reservation; though the restaurant was relatively empty, It took a while for the hostess to seat me. Regarding the meal, the servers were switched after I submitted my order and my meal instructions were not conveyed to the new server. The french fries were cold and the burger was mediocre because I ordered medium but was served well done. I was on a time restraint so I didn’t have time to send it back. I ate half of the burger but none of the fries. It’s usually a pleasant experience for me at Blackwall but they missed the mark this time.
Food is great, however think for the price, the portion sizes should be a little bigger.
I will certainly come again but the service was vert inattentive. Nothing was smooth. We often had to ask multiple times for drinks. We had to ask and then wait for utensils long after our food came out. The bartender was late and we did not get a chance to order any of the summer drinks. I think this an off service and not up to their usual standard.
Brunch was disappointing…. Food was less than subpar and I was expecting better. The atmosphere is always beautiful especially sitting outside. Dinner is much better than brunch. Waste of money in my opinion
Sunday Brunch was excellent!
You will be full for the rest of the day.
You can eat hearty or light.
The live entertainment sang very well.
My sever was very attentive to myself and everyone in my party.
Great brunch, although not a huge fan of 18% mandatory gratuity for a table of 4. Service was good, but it was high for buffet service. Also don’t buy the bottle of champagne for mimosas. Buying them individually is cheaper. Felt a little ripped off by that.
Brunch was amazing. Great staff. Live music. Fun atmosphere.
I frequently patronize this restaurant for brunch on Sundays
Great service, abundance of food and excellent music ambience. We'll definitely return.
I’d love to give this place a great review but unfortunately the food just wasn’t good. The setting is beautiful, but the overall experience for such a great location is just average.
Awesome night! Glad we were able to be seated outdoors while remaining socially distant. Our server was awesome and very patient, as we took a minute to order due to me and my friend not having see each other since pre-pandemic.
My food was excellent but my server was terrible! Took away from the experience but the food is amazing.
