    The server was kind; but, told us the wrong price for one of the specials. Had I known the actual price, I would not have ordered it. Both the server and owner were very passive and apathetic when I brought it to their attention. And they charge a fee to use credit. The soda I ordered came out in a can so no refills. The food was good but the rockfish was too crisp on the edges. We will not be back to Blackwell Hitch.

    Showed 2 amounts on the check. Pay cash was less and pay credit was more. Credit bad for customer , cash bad for waiter as it was less. Never in my life have I seen a cash/credit option at a resturant. Usually at the gas station or car wash. Seems a bit tacky.

    Blackwall Hitch - AnnapolisResponded on June 7, 2022

    Thank you for dining at Blackwall Hitch. Due to recent rise in inflation and credit card processing fees, restaurants have adjusted pricing to off-set costs, often deciding to increase menu prices by 5%. While that would have been easier, we felt that it was best to be transparent and show guests what they are paying for as opposed to hiding the fees in increased menu pricing. We appreciate your business and hope you will understand our need for implementing this policy in these difficult times.

    This review is a bit of a mixed bag. Starting with the positive, the food was very good; I had the blackened grilled swordfish dish and it was excellent. Others had a variety of dishes and reported that their meals were very good as well. I think they must have several waitstaff trainees as I saw a number of people come out with dishes and consistently go to the wrong table. They were basically guessing which table ordered which dish. This is not an issue as it takes time to learn the table assignments; just something I observed. Our waitress was probably relatively new and seemed unhappy, but I later realized she may have simply been nervous. The service was good and she was engaging at times. We did have an issue with our drinks. 3 of 4 of us ordered the ‘Tropical Hitch’, a tequila based refreshing drink. One person ordered a spicy margarita which the bar graciously made even though it’s not on the drink menu. The first round was very good and we all ordered another round. The second round was not prepared correctly, it seemed to us that we were all given rum drinks instead of the ones we had the first time. We didn’t drink more than a sip each and realized they were not right. We let our waitress know and she subsequently sent the manager(?) (Jacob) over to resolve the issue. By that time we all had decided that we didn’t want another drink and asked that they be removed from the bill (they were). Jacob was a bit argumentative and claimed that he saw the bartender use tequila in the drinks, but they were clearly not the same. We took a “toast picture” with the first round which had a pinkish color, the second round clearly didn’t. Did they forget the Campari? In the end, Jacob took the drinks away and we left. We’re not a bunch of young people who drink an entire drink then complain that we didn’t like it, we took a sip and knew right away that it wasn’t what we ordered. Also, why wasn’t the waitress empowered to handle the situation? We were on the rooftop.

    This was my first time at any Blackwall Hitch restaurant and it was good overall. However, when we first arrived, the hostess offered to seat us at a booth that hadn’t been cleaned properly, so we had to ask her to wipe off the seats and table. For my meal selection, I initially wanted the Mahi Mahi tacos, but my friend informed me that they’re much smaller than the standard taco size, so that was disappointing. I opted for the crab cake, which was very good, although smaller than what I expected. Despite these few issues, the restaurant is nice, the menu provides a good variety of options, and there’s a parking lot!!

    The food and Service were great however, they charge you more if you are paying by credit card. I did not think this was legal but they seem to be doing this. Also, you cannot split your payment between cash or card since they charge more for card processing. Me and my friend wanted to split the bill with her paying in card and me covering the rest in cash but we were unable to do this so she had to put the full amount on her card - we could not simply split the check based on what we ordered because we shared multiple appetizers. I do not think patrons should be charged more for paying with card and not cash, especially in the midst of a pandemic as we know cash carries a lot of germs.

    We enjoyed Blackwell Hitch very much and will come back. Our server Jason was very thoughtful and helpful. I had the Squid Ink Pasta and my one and only issue was the overcooked fish and tough calamari rings in the dish. However the shrimp, scallops and mussels were on point. My wife enjoyed her Crab soup and Shrimp Po Boy.

    We had reservations and actually got there about 15 minutes early and waited at the bar. Received a text the table was really but not so and therefore waited an additional 20 minutes. Finally seated in the bar area and waited another 15/20 min before my daughter asked about our server. Let’s say it appears they were not prepared for the crowd and lack communication between staffers. When finally ordered, we ordered calamari which had a good taste. The entrees ordered were short ribs and mashed potatoes which didn’t looked too appealing something looked like it was made at home and the crab cakes with rice corned succotash, the crab cakes were good just a lot of shells and the rice side mmm was not the best but doable. I will try again and the Concierge Amy was great! She encountered a lot and kept her composure very well. I love the fact she saw to compliment out not so best experience with dessert and the Island cake was great! Thank you!

    I was very surprised with the quality of the food. I was expecting the food to be similar to the Blackwall Barn & Lodge, which it was not. My pasta had frozen chicken breast pieces and my spinach appeared to have been frozen too and just wasn't good. I brought a friend their for her birthday. The waitress appeared rush to service our table because she had a large party next to us. Not even a candle on my friend cake to wish her a happy birthday, just ladies are you ready for dessert. Cake was brought and then the bill. Definitely will not be returning to this location as I was disappointed all away around.

    When I made reservations I said we were celebrating a birthday, however, the only thing said was 'happy birthday' with barely any emotion and no other acknowledgement. This was very off-putting and will make me think twice about returning. The food and service were both good. But I look for overall good/great experience and I didn't get that last evening.

    Crab cakes were just ok. Backflin used. The pasta noodles was hard undercooked and the sauce wasn’t marinated well into the dish as I would like. Shrimp and scallop risotto was sooo bland and risotto also undercooked. it was sent back The chicken dish was good. Although it could use more flavor. The desserts were delicious I must say key lime , peanut butter pie and ice cream and red velvet cheese cake! We shared them all. Oh how could I forget the fried green tomatoes were so tasty yum! The crab dip not so much it’s more of a crab spread not worth the price. I’m use to jumbo lump crab dip and crab cakes. 😀

    Dinner for two was about $300. Our server was delightful and pleasant. Cocktails were an *extremely* light pour. Dinner was not cooked properly, and by the time one was returned to us (without a fork), the other meal was not only rubbery but then cold as well.
