The buffet was not worth the price. The music was nice touch and the service was good. But the buffet was just o.k. I can’t recommend the brunch buffet. I much preferred when brunch was ala carte there. I’ve been multiple times and have always enjoyed the experience. Today was just very underwhelming and too costly for just o.k.

The crab cakes were not fresh. I asked if they were lump, and was told yes. They were not lump. I asked for lemon to try and doctor them up, but that didn’t work. I didn’t complain, the manager came by and asked how the food was, and I was honest. She took off the crab cakes from my bill, which I appreciated, but did not ask her to do.

We went to Blackwall on a Saturday evening. I made reservations for 6pm and we got very lucky in that the table right in front of the fire place in the lounge was available. Overall, it was average. Nothing special to us beyond the luck of getting a comfy seat by the fire. Food was pretty good, the cocktails were tasty but could be a little stronger, and the service was good but noticeably slow. Like most places, I imagine they are struggling with staffing. Our server Jason was great, but we noticed the lack of attention. Just a sign of the times. This is more of a place to go with friends I think. Nothing special in my opinion, but overall a good time.

Excellent meal and value. It did take a while for us to get served but we were happy to be out so we just settled in. Our poor server had too many tables but she was in good spirits. All good!

Went there for brunch the day after Christmas. Didn't particularly want brunch that day but it was late and we were hungry so we stayed. We both got made to order omelettes which were good. We ordered a $5 mimosa which was cold and flat. Returned it for a bloody Mary which was much, much better. All told, we paid over $80 for what amounted to two omelettes and a couple of desserts. Service was ok but a bit slow. We've been here for dinner and always had a nice meal and we'll be back, for dinner. Not a big fan of this brunch.

The restaurant was packed but we did not have to wait for our table. We ordered drinks before our appetizer and the appetizer arrived before the drinks. We had to remind our server about our drinks. Our food was good. Oysters were amazing. I got the shrimp & scallops risotto which was a small portion of seafood for the price. Next time I’ll get a sandwich instead of a dinner.

Our server was very friendly. She offered a great suggestion on the oysters. We were still finishing our dinners when our server dropped off a menu for dessert. We did feel a bit rushed.

I do enjoy this restaurant but I will not go on a special holiday again. They seemed a bit overwhelmed and scattered with service. Some diners waited over 45 minutes for their dinners only to not have proper silverware to eat their dinners.

A disappointing experience at this restaurant. Although we ordered from a pre-fixed Christmas menu, we waited 20 minutes between courses and our main course was forgotten, being served 40 minutes after our appetizers. The manager stopped by but before we could say something about the wait times, moved to another table. Our server also took nearly 15 minutes before coming back to take our order and overcharged us for drinks. After 2 hours at this restaurant we left with our desserts to go and when we got home, had the wrong desserts.

After reading various reviews before dining at this restaurant. I was a little nervous celebrating our wedding anniversary here but that quickly dissipated when we arrived at our reservation time. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted and taken to our table by the hostess who was very warm and kind. Our server Luis was very welcoming and even suggested many popular dishes, some of which were favorites of his as well. The atmosphere was very cheerful yet cozy feel. Luis was very attentive to our needs and continued to check in with us throughout our dining experience. Everything from the appetizers, entrees, wine, and dessert was exquisite. At the end of our meals I was expecting to pay much more than the actual bill. Our experience with the service and tasty dinner has left us in good hearts. We will be returning here again. Yes we will be recommending this restaurant to friends and family.
Also restaurant parking in the rear is a big plus.

Beautiful restaurant. Everything started off well. Cocktails were good and the flaming crab dip was good. Oyster selection was delivered without an explanation of what each oyster was and no cocktail fork. The waiter came and took our silverware when the food arrived and did not return to bring fresh. Had to flag down someone for silverware. The black pepper pasta was tasteless and the chicken was dry. Asked for a dessert menu and the waiter brought the check. Will not return.

My husband and I enjoyed our dining experience celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary. We loved the foods and service. However, we would had preferred a more cozier table area. Then a little special treat for celebrating. Our server Lydia was the best!

We got there waited for about 10 minutes then someone came gave us water and nothing else did not even say if our waiter will be with us shortly , apparently he was a manager not sure but he was not the waiter. We waited and waited and no one came to us so we walked out
Never again .

Service was excellent though it was a bit distracting that every server seemed to be training new staff. This extra traffic and conversation near to table definitely detracted from our anniversary dinner.

I was also taken aback that staff was not masked, especially when an employee at the hosting station coughed without covering her mouth as we entered to restaurant.

I would have enjoyed the experience more had it not have been a special occasion. Definitely headed back to the Barn and Lodge for the next special event.

Our server was well informed about the menu and special selections. Super service throughout the meal. Pumpkin soup was really nice. Manager stopped by and was sincere and pleasant and appreciative - not just doing the normal fly by you get at most places. First time here but won’t be the last.
