Previous experiences were great but not this time. I arranged a business dinner at this restaurant and the server was not attentive. It took a long time for drinks even the non-alcoholic drinks. She did not check in like she should have to at least update or reassure us that our order was coming. Appetizer came out cold and the sauces requested were not received. We had to send calamari back and I hate sending food back. The drinks were not worth the cost as far as how much was in the glass and clearly the pour was not measured. Two of the same drink came to the table with noticeable difference in the pour. Either the waitress was negligent or the bar real slow but it's Covid so you are operating at a limited capacity which should make the load lighter in my opinion. The food was lukewarm and lacked flavor. We paid the bill but I felt cheated and disappointed since I chose the restaurant. Again, other visits great just not this time.

The waitress was practically screaming at us... she was two tables behind us shouting “you need anything” moral of the story is I couldn’t wait to leave ....she was LOUD & not very professional!
Another thing I really didn’t like is when the bill came she gave it to the man instead of putting it in the middle for both of us, this was extremely rude and even though we played it off it wasn’t cool ! I’m not coming back on a date here .....EVER ,maybe with my girl friends...

It was great to see Brunch back at Black wall Hitch. However, fried potatoes were cold and they just were putting it out when I got there, is hit cold and bacon wasn’t cooked enough. Service was superb.

I made reservations for my daughter’s birthday and had special instructions which weren’t accommodated. I do not understand why this restaurant made me make a birthday reservation and I really didn’t need it. I ordered a Hennessy side car and was given cheap Hennessy. I ordered another drink that the bar tender couldn’t make. SMH! However, the experience was not what I expected and this place is overrated. I wish it could have been a better experience.

We sat over 25 minutes before our waiter ever approached our table for the first time. Appetizers were dropped off but we had no silverware. We had to hunt our waiter down to get some, after our food started getting cold. He seemed like he did not want to be bothered by customers. We are very easy going people but he was annoyed before he even reached us. We were constantly looking for him when we needed something. The food was good but on the expensive side. Romantic setting.

Never disappointed when I eat here. I had a generous salad with scallops, shrimp, and crab meat. My friend had a fabulous crab cake sandwich with very little filler. Love sitting outside on patio, favorite place in Old Town!

Food was great and the service was excellent. However, the decor and booths are worn to the point where it was disgusting to sit.

Please update the decor and booths.

We had a lovely meal. Slightly inexperienced waiter in the bar area but very pleasant. The bar was somewhat noisy and the music played was dated 80s music. We suggested Nathaniel Ratliff station and it got better from there! Delicious bronzino and shrimp pasta.

Each time we go in it’s a different vibe depending on the day of the week. This time it was a Sunday afternoon it was super loud and very busy. Even though we had a reservation we still had to wait over 20 minutes and they only had a high top available. The music was way too loud so we felt like we were screaming trying to talk to each other the table. Our food was good like normal, but our service was pretty slow overall, felt like they needed another waitress in the section. It was just ok.
