Our server, Chris, was excellent. From the time we walked through the door to the time we left he was amazing. He greeted us before a hostess. He even had to let a hostess know that we were at the front ab that we needed assistance. He was running back and forth with large groups, but he still made sure that we were taken care of. We were sat in his section, which we were happy about. He put our food and appetizer orders in at once and it wasn’t too long before our food arrived. It was Father’s Day so we knew things would be busy/hectic. I’m happy to say that other than the initial walk through the door (where no hostess greeted/assisted us) everything was enjoyable. We sat near the front door.

Our server, Chris was exceptional! Extremely pleasant attitude and very attentive. He provides some excellent recommendations while we were dining for Father’s Day. Highly recommend requesting Chris as your server. You won’t be disappointed.

Good food. My food had to be returned due to under cooked steak. The host was gracious and my meal was comped. Ambience was nice. I would recommend making reservations, especially on a weekend. Would dine at this establishment again.

Unfortunately my experience on 6/18/21 @9pm was lack luster . I have been to this location many times , but this visit was close to a nightmare. The service was just terrible , short staffed. Our drinks came almost a hour after we sat down . Our food came and appetizers came out together BEFORE our drinks. Also my plate didn’t include my vegetables mix .
I will attribute last night to a random fluke .

Food was awful. Crab cake was all filler. Mahi tacos were gross, fish had been frozen. Understaffed. Took 20 minutes for drinks to arrive. Never again.

My sister really wanted some Maryland seafood so we decided to spend a day in the Baltimore harbor and enjoy some dining. We arrived a few minutes earlier than our reservation and were seated right away. Except for a little wait for our drinks everything was served promptly. They were still conscious of COVID as all the staff were wearing masks and guests were required to wear them when they weren’t seated. I also saw them sanitizing every time a party left a table.

The food was really good and they had good sized portions. My sister and I shared the calamari app which was plenty for two people and it was so good! I had the oyster po’ boy which was good, I just wish I remembered to ask them not to put tomatoes on my sandwich because it makes it soggy. My sister had the crab cake entree which she said was good but she also said that she thought it would be better because it was Maryland lol. The drinks were great! I had a glass of rosé and a glass of Prosecco, both were top notch. My sister had the watermelon sugatini which she liked a lot because she got two ☺️. The wait staff was attentive and courteous (customer service goes a long way with me!). I would absolutely visit again!

I had a reservation through a third party. We sat at the table for 15 minutes before a server acknowledged us letting us know she would not be our server but could get us started. When I received water, I received a single glass and not the bottle of distilled water like everyone else. The appetizer I ordered took 15 minutes to come out and at this point I still hadn’t received my bar drink.

Because of the lapse of time, I asked the host to speak to a manager. I let the manager know we wanted the check for the items ordered and we would be leaving. The manager apologized, citing being short staff and shift change. He took care of my parties two bar drinks and appetizer and offered us to relax and eat the appetizer, if we wanted. We did and then the server brought out our two meals. She was shocked to know we did not want the food any longer. The service was less than stellar, then to learn the manager hadn’t communicated anything to the staff was even more concerning.

For these prices, I expect a level of service better than this. Completely disappointed!!

Wend for Sunday brunch. Food was outstanding and came out very quickly. Our server did not seem to know what she was doing, perhaps she was new to the job. Bar service was horrible. I had to walk to the bar several times to inquire about our drinks. I would give them a second chance though.

This was my first time at Blackwall Hitch and I would definitely go back. The waiters are very accommodating attentive and hospitable. Our waitress Ms. Texas was a delight. They make u feel welcomed there. I went for an early dinner with my spouse and our young child however I can imagine at night this would also be a great place for friends getting dinner and drinks you can be casually dressed or dressed up and still feel like you're at the right place .. The drinks hit the spot! The food is flavorful and well cooked. And if decor matters to you the subtle elgance in the slightly boat themed establishment is spot on with its entire look its not too much but just enough and whole entreé of class!

Had a reservation and sat at about 430. We were sat and the waiter took 30 minutes to come greet us, when I went to inquire about a waiter we were told we weren’t supposed to be sat there and the waiter was on break. Drinks took probably another 30 minutes. Food was fine for a tourist location. Server just seemed like he’d rather be doing other things and annoyed by us.

We waited quite awhile for service, and asked the hostess to ensure a waiter was assigned to us. Then Shakira came and turned our experience around. She was attentive and helped us make good selections for food and drinks. We enjoyed the food a lot. Our only disappointment is that we'd heard about the wonderful Sunday brunch buffet and were hoping to partake, but there wasn't a buffet at this location. Many thanks again to Shakira for a wonderful experience.

We were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary with friends. There were 4 other larger parties going on as well, including an actual wedding. But CHRIS gave us the most remarkable service. He was quick but that didn’t take away from his proficiency. We were the smallest party of the bunch, but he still made sure we were okay with check ins. We did have a little mix up with our drink order since the upstairs bar was closed due to the wedding. But Chris’s service outweighed any issues we encountered. He was amazing! The food was really good. Highlights were the oysters, the pork chop dinner, and the shrimp and grits. We will be back bc we all really had a pod time. But Chris took our experience over the top.

Service was painfully slow, food arrived cold after a long wait, and the wine was overpriced (all bottom-shelf generic brands where you can buy a bottle at the grocery store for less than the cost of a glass).

Appetizers came after the meal was served even though we were told our meal order wouldn’t be put in until after we received our appetizers.

Other than that the food as great.

Our waiter (wolfgang) was great. The food was relatively standard, and way over-priced for the portion and quality. There were some great local beers on tap. There was also a strange smell in the restaurant, which I can only assume is from whatever cleaning suites they use. There are better options close by.

Our waitress was wonderful, friendly and informative. Her menu recommendations didn’t disappoint, definitely delicious. However, once our entres were served, we felt a bit abandoned. It took her a long time to return to clear our plates, and she assumed we were ready for our check. However, it was my friend’s birthday, and he did want desert. We did notice that the restaurant was closing; it was Sunday night with few patrons, so we thought, she would quickly take our order and bring it out. No another long wait; we did get the desert we ordered eventually, and waitress remained very personable, but really the long wait was unwarranted as the restaurant was nearly empty. I realize staffing these days is a problem, and there are still COVID restrictions, but the service flow was disappointing for a restaurant in this price range.
