As locals, we really enjoy making Blackwall Hitch our "go to" spot. We were there on a Saturday afternoon, the first week of the winter menu. At 2pm, they were already out of the short rib sandwich - a huge disappointment. We "made do" with the chicken/brie sandwich (delicious) and the steak salad - which was very good but rather spare compared to others in the area. Typically, the bar is excellent and our visit proved no different - Blackwall Hitch has the best bartenders in Annapolis. We'll be back - but do stock up on the short ribs!

Delish, seasonal and fresh tasting lunch. Price was great for the lunch option I chose (soup and flat bread). Can’t wait to return.

The food was very good, and the service was great, but I was puzzled by the lighting. It was way too bright. The entire evening I felt like I was in someone’s kitchen. This detracted from any ambience. The 50’s-60’s music was good...not too loud, which is always a plus!!

I know this location has changed hands over the years, but this is my favorite restaurant here so far. The service was outstanding. Very knowledgable, personable staff. Had a recommendation for every question. The meal was amazing and the portion sizes were filling and more then we expected for the prices. There is an extensive drink menu with cocktails, wines and beer for everyone. I would highly recommend checking this place out. We will be back.

I love the ambiance there and service was great, but the food not so much. We split the red brick chicken. That was hot, but everything underneath it was cold. I got a side of cheesy grits as well, and they were not hot either, and so thick they were more like a paste. I’ve eaten there before and had great tasting food, but the temperature has always been an issue.

First time coming to the Annapolis location, I enjoyed it just as much as the Alexandria location. The food is consistent and delicious service is good. Looking forward to returning, I’m also thinking about hosting and event there.

With a reservation we waited for approximately 15-20 minutes without being seated. When we asked about this we were told it might be another 15 minutes and that they were waiting on tables to clear. Normally, I understand this, but this would have made it over 30 minutes past our reservation time- we were not happy and were informed we could take bar seating as it was first come first serve. Bar seating was fine, but it was in the traffic of the buffet and we found it hard to talk on that side of the restaurant due to live music and other patrons. The food was good and I enjoyed the oysters.

Food was fresh and flavorful. The service was great, just enough attention from waitress , to let you have great conversation with family.

Nice ambience however there were several large parties the weekend we were there and service left a little something to be desired. Food was good but a little cold by the time it arrived at our table. Management graciously provide some complimentary appetizers and desserts. I would try again but perhaps at a little less hectic time of the week.

Overall an excellent meal! Our server, Roger, was very personable and made very good suggestions about the menu. Cocktail was good though a bit pricey. Crab dip was a great appetizer. Roger’s suggestion of the blackened rockfish with Cajun butter was spot on. It was a little noisy due to a large party, but overall was a great experience. We’ll definitely be back!

We taken to our table very quickly. The service was impeccable, the server was always there for anything we needed. The food was amazing, especially the oysters. My boyfriend and I love oysters and these were very fresh and tasty. A little on the pricier side but well worth it! Will go again!

The decor and ambiance are superb! Brunch food is excellent with 2 different buffets available. Bloody Mary's get 2 thumbs up. Location is convenient to DTA and ample parking is available. It's pricey but we'll go again to try out the dinner menu on our next visit to Annapolis.

Everything about Blackwall Hitch was good. Not outstanding. Not poor. Just good. The food was good, but could have been better for the price. The service was good, but could have been better with a bit more enthusiasm or attentiveness.

My experience at Blackwall Hitch in Annapolis was great. It was mainly due to the attentiveness and excellent customer service my family received from the waiter, Roberto. He made sure we were happy with our food and drinks and whatever we needed he quickly provided (so fast that we often didn’t even realize that he brought us whatever we asked for). He went over the entire brunch menu and took the time to show us where we could find the food we desired. There was a bridal shower going on during the brunch which was a little noisy but not overwhelmingly noisy (it just caught our attention a lot). Overall, the food was great and so was the experience. I will definitely be back but I only want Roberto as my waiter, HE’S THAT GOOD !

I loved the relaxed ambiance – a comfortably exciting atmosphere without overwhelming the senses. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The rockfish was amazing and the shrimp although I wish I had reserved a special table. Service at the door was a little aloof. But we were seated promptly, and the waitress was on-point and friendly.
