The experience was good. The hostess were exceptional. We arrived around 11:44am before our reservation time at noon. We asked for a booth and was told it would be about a 20min wait which we were fine with. They did not forget about us and we were seated within the 20min. After about 15 minutes after we got seated we had to ask for our server. One of the hostesses took our order which took another 15min. Then we asked for several people for sauces which took another 15min to arrive and our food was practically cold. However at the end of the meal one of the managers came to check on us. He brought tea and had our dessert arrive quickly.

Since we were not pressed for time it was fine but the experience would have been so much better without all of the waiting after we got seated. I can say that the staff was great, the orders were correct but they seemed to be inundated.

My food was not good. The kitchen neglected to put any chorizo in the Chorizo skillet. The Smith Island cakes (red velvet and carrot) were dry. My guests enjoyed their Crab Cakes Benedict and the Crab Deviled Eggs were tasty.

The service was excellent, just a little mixup on how to make a martini. The food was good. Crab cake sandwich was a little spicy. French fries were excellent and plentiful. The noise level was louder then I prefer, but settled down a lot when a very loud and vulgar speaking group of people left. Loved the discounted parking, saved us over $12.00. Easy access from the parking V parking garage. If you are downtown I'd recommend Blackwall Hitch. Decorations were awesome.

Blackwall Hitch Will definitely be seeing me again! The food was amazing!! My Best friend and I decided to go for Brunch, $45 mimosa bucket, WORTH IT! The crab deviled eggs and shrimp cocktail CHEFS KISS! Jen was absolutely amazing and attentive. My friend and I both ordered the shrimp and grits, let me start by saying I was terrified because I’ve never had grits a day in my life but the description of the entrée sold me! I must say I’m glad I ordered it because it was AMAZING!!! The sauce made the dish! I wouldn’t have had my first time trying grits any other way. Will I eat grits anywhere else now, no. Haha! Im excited to return!

This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised. My wife had the Rockfish and she said it was good. I had the Penne with shrimp, chicken and andouille sausage, it was very good, especially the cream sauce. The only reason I didn’t give the food an outstanding was because the calamari was a bit chewy. But the ambiance was nice and our server was very good, pleasant, knowledgeable about the dishes and present only when we needed him to be. We definitely plan to return.

Food was excellent—better than we expected. Atmosphere was nice; well spread out. Drinks took a very long time but our server apologized and we understood. Staffing shortages are everywhere. The food came fast! Highly recommend.

I never got to eat here because the flyer for Thanksgiving was misleading. I went there because I wanted the food on their regular menu not Thanksgiving food. I called ahead of time and the person answering the phone couldn't tell me what food they were serving on Thanksgiving day. Eventually, they posted a flyer that said they were having a Thanksgiving brunch that would be over at 6. But in actuality it was not. Our reservation was at 6 and the brunch had continued. I was really upset because I drove out of my way for a birthday dinner that I was in the end not able to get because of misleading information by the restaurant. I told the manager and she acted as if she could have cared less. Next time just better commincate with your customers. If your brunch extended past 6, then say that. Ps. Move up!!

Dined here on a Saturday evening with a reservation. Ordered a ginger ale, crab dip appetizer, and Cajun bayou penne for my appetizer. Service was great! However, was not overall impressed by the food (my dining companion ordered the Shobb salad, also wasn’t impressed). For the $ spent, the value and presentation in the food is simply not there. Crab dip came in a small circle dish with a few naan chips.

My good girlfriend and I met up for dinner. It was a great dining experience. It started off a bit slow but they definitely made up for it. I will definitely be back to try many of the menu items. I was disappointed that they were out of the crab dip especially after the server recommended it and raved about it.

Good menu selection. Great atmosphere. Our food was a little over cooked. We had Rock fish and the trio. The shrimp was a little hard and the pesto salmon did not have much flavor. Judging from the looks of other people's plates, our food was just over cooked. We had wings and they were delicious. We will try it again.

Good choice if you have to eat at the Inner Harbor. Nice and varied menu with more affordable sandwiches and costlier entrees. We had a burger and a chicken sandwich that were tasty and served with a generously-sized pickle spear and an appropriately-portioned side of fries. Our table service was friendly and fine, but we witnessed other tables experience some abandonment issues.
