I enjoyed my birthday dinner with my sister and niece at the Blackwall Hitch. We started with the fried green tomatoes, Riesling and margaritas, all fabulous selections. I ordered and enjoyed the shrimp and scallops risotto which was simply scrumptious! My sister enjoyed the rock fish entree and my niece enjoyed the Southwest chicken. We had an early reservation during a time when the restaurant wasn’t packed and the hearing level and atmosphere was great. Enjoying dinner with family, the atmosphere, the drinks, and good food made for an excellent birthday dinner experience!

We all had different foods at brunch and they were all good. I did have to send back the Baltimore skillet for more crab but the manager did bring it back out. It was my second time there but the service this time around wasn’t that good but the drinks made up for it! They have a vast brunch menu and something for everyone and creative, delicious drinks!

Good food.
There were some patrons in the bar area - essentially the same ambient as the dinning room - that were loud with very colorful language. We were relocated after requesting so (young kids in our party).
Staff was very friendly, but service a little on the slow side .

Overall good experience.

coffee and tea was not real hot. Very small cup for coffee, has to ask several times for refills. No sugar on table or none came with coffee. When he did bring it it was not enough. Biggest gripe was my wife's avocado toast ... the bread was not toasted at all. The toast with my breakfast was not toasted either. That was a big disappointment for avocado toast. Place was big and nicely decorated. A bit overpriced.

Disappointed. On NYE they should not have taken reservations past 8 if they were going to rush people dining in due to them closing at 10. Doesn't make sense to charge someone $110 for a four course meal and then rush the food out to force them to eat because the restaurant is closing. It was a horrible experience and I will not return.

My boyfriend and I made reservations for Blackwall Hitch on Open Table and were very excited to have a wonderful NYE dinner out because it had been so long since we were able to do this. We even looked at the dinner menu prior and decided what we were going to have. When we got there the very nice host told us that not a lot of people who made reservations for NYE knew there was a special NYE menu only for that night. We honestly thought that it was just the food choices that were different so we agreed since we knew the food would be great. When we sat down, we noticed in very tiny writing, that it was $110. per person! That plus drinks, 4 beers & included gratuity, brought our total to over $300. We were in now way expecting that and honestly, the food wasn’t that amazing. We both didn’t feel the meal was worth that much. I want to go back again and try the dishes we had originally wanted to try but it’s going to be a while.
Ps. Parking in the garage was $30.!

I sent the Calamari back because it was less than room temp and the center down was soaking in oil. Not sure if the server picked it up late or what I requested a new order but I received a refried of the same calamari it was though I did not eat it. I asked the server again was the calamari a fresh order she got angry very curt replied Yes Yes seriously looking firm in my eyes. I was not happy with the way she responded to me I bought a friend I had not seen in years .

While the food was good. The service was not tonight on our first visit. 15 mins after being seated our server finally came over. He seemed puzzled at first that no one told him we were there. It seemed like he was going to make it better but unfortunately he wasn’t able to deliver to make our visit like the other reviews. My drink I ordered never came. My wife’s after being delivered to the next table first was too sweet and not worth the price. The appetizer was delivered to a different table and then finally showed up after our entrees were served.
Our Waiter seemed to be trying but was either overwhelmed or had too many tables. I’m not sure and wanted to give him and the restaurant a chance as I know times are difficult. We had few check ins and by the time he did it was too late there wasn’t much more than us finishing our food, paying the bill, and leaving.
My short rib sandwich was good but the amount of shrimp and scallops served with the risotto was lacking for the price. For the amount we paid, I was expecting much more. Based on tonight’s experience I couldn’t recommend this place.

For the most part, the experience was okay. Upon arriving a few minutes before my reservations still had to wait for a table to be ready but that was fine. Waitress was attentive in making sure we were doing fine even while waiting for the rest of the party to arrive. Ordering food was quick and easy since we had quite a bit of time to decide.

Upon receiving our food, the people in my party were not as happy or satisfied with how their food came out. They ordered the chicken and waffles. The chicken was basically burnt or in other words over cooked. Skin was dry and very crunchy. Not as appealing to eat. Other than the food issue all was well throughout our stay.

Overall, the food and drinks were fantastic and there was plenty of room to socially distance. While the service was a bit slow and some of the wines we selected were sold out, that is what one must accept during this Covid-19 days. Our waitress was very nice and competent.

They took 20 minutes to even come to our table after we got there. We felt rushed out of there. It was my fiancés birthday and it was very uncomfortable even ordering food there. I wanted this place to be a new spot I take my NFL players to but that will not be the case.

We had a decent time. Food was really good and atmosphere was nice. We asked about the crab cake entree and our server told us they were $22. Good deal we thought so 3 of us ended up ordering them. Turned out they were $22 each, so $44 per person as they came with 2. It was annoying since we specifically asked about it, but that’s okay. Just be sure to clarify when you get an item with market price.

Blackwall in Baltimore is beautiful and the food is good. The only reason this wasn’t a great trip is because it took over 15 minutes for someone to come to our table. Someone finally popped over after to ask if anyone had come to our table.

I was not impressed with the food whatsoever. Overly priced for no reason. I had the crab dip, there was no crab meat and the taste was disgusting. Steroid wings, flavors were good. I had the tri something and it was very blank and didnt come with a vegetable. Definitely a waste of money. I would not not return.

Overall, as a first time experience, it was great. I would actually return, but decide on different selections. I ordered the waffle and turkey links while my partner ordered the chicken and waffle. Appetizer-We decided on the fried green and tomatoes with the lump crab as an addition. Drinks: coffee and sunrise cocktail. Let me start with the stars of the show…the waffle. Buttery, the perfect amount of fluff and crispy edges topped off with maple syrup and butter…deliciousness. Fried green tomatoes were also wonders. Seasoned to perfection with the right amount of golden crunch that complimented the bed of corn so well. Adding the lump crab meat took the dish to another level, but we were displeased with the amount of lump crab meat we got for $15 (added) to the cost of this appetizer. Definitely wouldn’t be getting the lump crab again. Now…the let downs…turkey links were extremely dry, bland…I wouldn’t even offer them to my dogs. The fried chicken was seasoned well, and some pieces (as the dish offered three) were moist. The mark was missed with the pieces that were extremely greasy, too much breading, and dry. And the color was a bit dark for our taste. We are use to a golden brown fried chicken. This chicken was dark. It was as if the grease wasn’t changed or it could of been the type of seasoning used. Oh…drinks: coffee was not hot, but my sunrise cocktail (recommended by my waiter) was divine.
Ambiance was great; waiter was exceptional.
Reservations are encouraged.
Love that they validate parking.
