The food was not good but the ambiance and service was great!
While the service was excellent, I was not impressed with the food. Starting with the crab dip, which was extremely hot and burned the roof of my mouth and my husband’s tongue, tasted more cheesy than crabby. My husband’s scallops meal was delicious, but was not impressed with my shrimp and grits. The roux was more soupy than I expected and the andouille sausage had no flavor. How can andouille sausage not have any flavor? This review is based on my experience and not to discourage anyone.
Overall the food was decent, however; service was HORRIBLE. Our waiter was very sweet but everything took incredibly slow. It took at least 20-30 minutes just to get 1 drink. There would also be 3-4 different people waiting on us so it was very confusing who they actual waiter was at the time. I will say the restaurant wasn’t even crowded at the time. The table next to us were experiencing the same thing and they started complaining about the service. I don’t think we will be back.
Our server DeQuan was courteous, polite, and attentive. The food was tasty. The ambiance was nice.
Blackwall Hitch was the perfect location for a pre-show dinner. Drinks and appetizers were plentiful and delectable. The restrooms were clean and spacious.
Overall, everything was great. Our server was attentive. The restaurant was nice…had a bit if a rustic feel. My food was yummy but my only complaint is one of our dishes was cold. Otherwise, I’d visit again.
Food was great along with the venue itself. Service was good too I would definitely recommend this
Great place for a birthday dinner service was exceptional and always order blackwall shrimp
Terrible service - it took an hour and a half for us to get our food. Some of us just canceled the whole order.
Birthday dinner. The service was amazing and the ambiance was wonderful.
It’s a very nice looking place but food service was slow. Drinks were amazing but couldn’t order my second Summer Heat because they ran out of the ingredients.
The waitress needed more help simply put. She had a large section and outside so she could not have been at attentive as I would wanted her to have been. The food was decent some items were bland while others were perfectly seasoned.
Everything was decent considering the current climate of the food industry.
My party arrived 10 minuted early. 5 people they told us we would be seated shortly. We go back inside and they state oh we will seat you in this booth. I stated this is too small we will not have any space to eat. There was multiple parties who came in after and was seated before us and received their food before us. We switch to a table and then they took almost 10-15 before the waitress came. This was horrible. I had my 94 grandmother and 70 yr old mother with me. Terrible service
Everything was amazing!! Will definitely be going back again.
Great place with wonderful good! The service is impeccable.
Slow service on both drinks and food. Ambience and food its self was good though
This was nothing like the Alexandria, VA location. I took someone on a date, the waiter took too long to get to the table, he finally took our order..30 mins later the entrees were 86. The drinks were under poured. (I’m a bartender). He didn’t follow up to see if we were good. Hot mess.

Everything was great! Our waitress Ms. Texas was Excellent! We plan on returning.
Very nice atmosphere for 8 group events. Food was hot and on time. The group enjoyed the private space a nice surprise. Made the event personnel and given the times we were able to close the door to get privacy. Service was top-notch! Did I say the good was HOT and very good! Excellent serverings
Great food. Great service.
No complaints whatsoever, had a fantastic night.
Service was really good. Food plates varied in size not proportionate to price— truffle flatbread was awesome. Scallops were overdone. Trident broiler was very good— crab cake very good. Again, server was terrific. Drinks prompt and well made.
The crab deviled eggs 😋 & I loved the variety of drink options for brunch.
We left after being sat for 10 minutes and no acknowledgement from any staff.
Great food before concerts. Oysters were excellent as was the flatbread and the soft shell crab sandwich.
Enjoyed our meal, would recommend if visiting the inner harbor. Crab flatbread and seabass we're delicious!
A backup at the bar caused us to wait 15-20 minutes for drinks (like glasses of wine or beer). Also waited extended time for the server to check in on the table. Probably just staffing shortages, but it did become a little frustrating.
Blackwall and Hitch is perfectly located in downtown Baltimore. However it's service and food quality and price do not match the ambiance. Nothing served was exceptional in fact it was terribly average. Potatoes were over cooked and tasted as if they had been prepared in advance and warmed up. I ordered the steak medium well - it was definitely overcooked and the crab was near tasteless. Given all those factors the dishes were overpriced.
We had dinner at Blackwall Hitch as part of an anniversary celebration. The food and service were excellent, as well as the hostess who greeted and seated us.
Our waiter was awesome. Food great! The hostess was rude.
The food was amazing . Our service was slow , the manager informed us they were understaffed and he was great and got us what we needed .
Our server was new and he made a good attempt. The order was wrong and they replaced the items and the food was over cooked. The drinks were great however. The Blackwell Hitch has great potential to be a food destination at the Inner Harbor but misses on service or the food preparation. When they don't miss this place is excellent. When they do it is bad and very slow.
The food was delicious and abundant. Our waiter Jo B was fantastic and had great recommendations!!!
My husband and I enjoyed another delicious brunch. This time I ordered oysters and presecco bucket for mimosas.
Both delicious and shout out to great bartenders Tianna & Jisellle.
Miss Texas was the absolute best server and made us feel very welcome! Very fast service too!
We enjoyed lunch, drinks and planned to return for brunch.
Our party of 6 had a great experience. Texas and her trainee were super helpful in their recommendations and the service was great with prompt refills or bringing requested condiments. The Blackwell Shrimp appetizer was great- they should make an appetizer just of the sauce and a loaf of bread- it is really that good. The tuna tartare was a little sweet for my taste but good nonetheless. The calamari disappeared in a minute! The shrimp and grits were good and those who had the pork chops said they were cooked perfectly (but could use some additional seasoning). Because of the high ceilings, the noise is a bit louder but it wasn’t a problem for the 6 of us to hear one another. And if you go, tell Texas the visiting Texans recommended the place!
