Was my son’s wedding day wanted to go somewhere nice. We started with drinks that seemed to take forever then had appetizers, oysters on the half shell got a variety the waitress said she would tell us about each one, they were not delivered by her and we never found out which kind they were. Supper came mine was okay my husband had red snapper way over cooked. Had to beg to get another drink, by the time I got martini we were ready to leave. Just didn’t stack up to a $360 meal for 4.
Excellent ..service & food was Great ! I’m definitely going back soon
Thank you for being open during these times - I've missed BWH so much! We were seated in the "crows nest" and I had never been up there before - it was very comfortable and we felt very safe with the protocols in place. Overall a very enjoyable dinner/evening. Thank you so much for helping us feel a little bit normal.
We ordered the flaming crab dip (AMAZING) and then for entrees ordered the steak and rockfish. The steak was quite tough and the rockfish overcooked. Neither dish was satisfying. The service was pretty good even though there was a big wedding reception happened which I am sure took up a lot the restaurants resources. Overall an ok date but I would come for drinks and the crab dip next time. Also note (which the server did not tell us) that the extra pita bread costs $2 more
It was my birthday, no birthday dessert or item was offered but still one of favorite restaurants.
Seemed to be taking necessary precautions with Covid and staff was very friendly. I got the coconut chai cocktail which I would not recommend. It was very strong and had a very odd texture. but everyone else liked their drinks and the food was great! Probably a little pricier than it should be based on the quality of food but otherwise great all around!
My husband and I love Blackwall Hitch. The food and service are consistently perfect!
We sat outside and many tables were unused and hadn’t been cleaned. Being surrounded by dirty tables with birds swooping down for scraps kinda kills the vibe. Service and food were good but overall Blackwall needs to step it up a bit.
After making a 2:15 reservation we were not seated until 2:50. The hostess gave us the option to sit outside and directed us towards the patio for us to learn from another hostess that there was a one hour wait. We opted to sit inside but still waited entirely too long. The drinks were wonderful. Our server was very nice and when our appetizer (one rib) fell on the floor he replaced it! I ordered the rockfish which was over cooked, under seasoned and bone dry. I was underwhelmed by the experience, especially for the price and have no plans to return or recommend this restaurant to anyone else.
I had a 12:45 pm reservation with my fiancé and mother in law didn’t get seated until a little after 1pm. When we were finally seated it took 30 mins just to place a order after we placed an order it took almost an hour and we ordered appetizers that we didn’t even get. We ended up leaving we were not happy at all. The server we had was rude didn’t even tell us his name didn’t even check in with us. Another server did which was very much appreciated. But the overall experience was not good at all.
Brought visitors in from out of state and they were also pleased.
The food, as always is delicious. The staff and service, however, are almost not worth it.
The restaurant and location were beautiful. The food was fresh and tasty! The drinks were unique, delicious, and strong. The service was fantastic! An excellent brunch!
Had a really lovely meal. Started with oysters, mussels and steak, and then pumpkin cheese cake and chocolate truffles for dessert. Well priced considering everything we ordered. It was pretty loud on a Saturday night, but didn't bother me.
Fun restaurant for a long brunch
Great food!!! Great quality!!! Great service !!!!!
The best part of the meal was Griff, our server. He made the meal with his attention to detail and extra touches to make our birthday celebration perfect.
Watched two diners leave, there was no sanitizing of areas, simply cleared the tables and sat new guests. Also, menus provided via tablet, again no sanitization. Overall not bad but not worth the risk.
Bre was our waitress and she was phenomenal! In addition, the food temperature and taste was great. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and every employee that came to our table congratulated us.
Awesome as always. Our server, Heather was outstanding, and made great drinks!
Amazing date night with my husband. I was here last night with my best friend and had to come back tonight. I'm addicted to the food!! The service was phenomenal!
Beautiful location we sat on the deck. We had an exceptional server. Service was on time and relaxed.
Hands down the worst restaurant experience I have had in recent memory! Arrived on time
For 1:30 reservation, seated 25 mins later, after standing in crowded vestibule. Completely filled dining room with people, not at all distanced. Took forever for drinks, well over an hour for food. We were there for Sunday brunch, came back and were out of steak and eggs. One person ordered cheese and onion omelet, brought one fully loaded. 2 people ordered from their signature cocktail menu and they came back and said they didn’t have the ingredients for either. The plates that came were missing part of the order. There’s probably more, but I think that says enough.
Food was cold, my wife sent hers back twice. Invited friends and it was their first time. Their food came out extra late. Brunch was at 1230p but didn't leave until around 4p because of the food issues
Very slow service, had to ask for things a couple of times. Food got cold while waiting.
Great customer service and friendly staff will return.
Great restaurant with great good. Frustrating that they do not prioritize those with dinner reservations for outdoor seating. Outdoor seating in a Saturday night was over a 2 hour wait, even when we had a reservation and showed up early. Ended up sitting inside which was fine, it’s a bit dark and they were playing dance/club music which was strange for a dinner setting. Food was delicious and our waitress was excellent!
We checked in 5 mins early for a 5:45pm reservation that we made through open table app, and were told by the hostess it would be just a few minutes while they were clearing some tables. We had to continually ask the hostess about the wait time as our wait was getting longer and longer. We were given the run around a lot and eventually we were seated at a table in the bar area 45 minutes after our reservation time. We had our complaints run up to the manager and we were offered complimentary cocktails. That was nice of them but not worth the wait and standing there in the lobby wearing a mask for 45 minutes. That is something you should expect from a restaurant that gives you a pager to hold onto until your table is ready, not an establishment like this.
Waiters were very busy,our entree and salad came out together and the entree was cold and sent back. Overall after the meal came back it was good
Food and servers were awesome, but the hostess staff left a lot to be desired. We came by an hour before reservation, hostess refused to check us in told us to come back closer to reservation time. We returned at 745 for 8pm reservation to find all other 8pm reservations checked in ahead of us. Didn't get seated until 830 for an 8pm reservation.
Service was excellent, food was amazing and scenery was beautiful
Been at Blackwall Hitch twice in past week - both experiences top level - food and service - Hector and Stephanie
Great outdoor seating for a family lunch.
I love Blackwall Hitch and that was my second visit on Wednesday for my Son’s birthday celebration. We experienced a few issues like the dinner rolls being hard and crunchy and my husbands pork chop was cold by the time he got it. Probably because the service was a little slow this visit. Overall though it was still a really good experience.
It was great! I can’t wait to go back!
This was my first time here and it was AMAZING! I loved the music, the food, our waitress, everything! I will definitely visit again soon!!!
My only complaint was the noise level inside due to the volume of the music which was also of a type that I do not find conducive to a relaxing lunch. The staff was very good and the food well prepared with quality ingredients.
Signature cocktails were a joke. "Sangria" was cheap red wine with club soda, that's it for a premium cost. "Grlled watermelon salad" was a slab of cold watermelon. Never saw a grill with stale feta cheese on top. entrees were very good tho.
We attended for our anniversary and was very pleased with the attention provided to us on this special occasion.
