Food was delicious. Service was terrible. Seated right on time and after 15 minutes with no server, I flagged down the manager in order to place our order. Food came out rather quickly, which was nice however, we still had no server and had to flag the manager again in order to ask for another round of drinks. No one came to check on us, clear our plates, or even offer up the check. Instead, we had to go to the bartender to request our check. Again, food was delicious and ambiance was great, the service though left a bad taste in our mouths.

For being one of the only brunch spots in Baltimore they really missed the mark. There were about 4 options for people who don’t eat seafood two being side salads and one being a flatbread that they advertised as “Caprese Flatbread” but was actually just bad pizza. My dining mate got the crab cakes Benedict which he was very disappointed in. The fried green tomatoes were great. It took about 20 minutes to get drinks with less than a third of the restaurant full, we got our appetizers before a mimosa and Bloody Mary. Was over $100 for two people. Probably wouldn’t go back.

The hostess and the server provided poor service. Their attitudes were extremely poor and they were not really engaging. Our meal felt rushed and the overall experience was disappointing.

Our service was excellent. Ambiance was exactly what we were looking for a low key Wednesday night. The first course, mussels, were delicious. Cocktails were excellent. My date’s pork chop was AMAZING. Server talked me out of the scallops into the sea bass which was overall a disappointing dish. It came out as described and the temperature on the fish was good. But it just didn’t stand up to the other dishes we ordered.

My dining experience at Blackwell’s exceeded my expectations. Once seated at a table, service was prompt and our server was very attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and the portion sizes were great for the price. While very busy, the noise level was not overwhelming. The space between tables made me feel very relaxed. This was truly a treat and I am already planning my return visit.

Overall, it is a nice place and has great views from the upper level. Oysters were some of the best we’ve had. However, I felt like it was a bit overpriced and it was a shame that they serve brunch until 3. We wanted more of a lunch option and the brunch menu was a bit limited for us. Service was great but occasionally it took a while to find our server since we were seated in the back near the restrooms. Each couple easily spent over $150.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
