This was our second time at the restaurant . We went back in October when we were visiting the aquarium food was good and it wasn’t very crowded . Fast toward to Sunday (2/28) when we were there. We had a day planned in Baltimore for my 4 year olds birthday since he was unable to have a party this. We planned to come here before going to the aquarium for lunch. I checked on open table the day before and there were plenty of time slots available . I checked again that morning and still the same thing plenty of times available and I was unsure exactly what time we would be there so I didn’t make a reservation . It was pouring rain and we had forgotten our umbrella . Needless to say we were soaking wet by the time we got to the restaurant I was carrying my 9 week old baby in the baby carrier and my husband our 4 year old . It didn’t seem very busy and the hostess came over and I said we just have 4 please . She goes do you have a reservation ? To which I replied we didn’t and she says well the wait is an hour then . I relay the info to my husband and we start to try to figure out where to go . I decided to look on open table and ironically somehow there is a reservation available at the restaurant in 10 minutes ... so we booked it . It was frustrating at the lack of empathy and willingness to help from the hostess . We only stayed due to the weather and location . At that point we didn’t feel that the restaurant wanted our business . The food was good a little slow and the waitress was very sweet . I don’t know that we will be back after the way we were treated there are a lot of restaurants struggling right now would rather take my business where it’s appreciated. If you decide to go here make sure you have a reservation because even if they’re empty they’ll quote you a ridiculous wait time .

Servers didn’t check on us. Food was cold/ eggs and toast.
Drinks too very long and forgotten but charged had to ask for drinks.

Very nice place but not the best experience on Sunday February 28

Our server was fantastic and the menu looked amazing. However, the eggs on my crab Benedict were way overdone and they sat so long the hollandaise had disappeared. My friend never got her oatmeal because they could not figure out how to make it correctly. It is a shame because the place is beautiful and has great potential.

This was our second time coming to Blackwall Hitch, and the first time was fantastic! To the point, it was the first place when we wanted to celebrate a big event in our lives. Sadly, this time it was disappointing to the extreme. I walked in, and I believe the person who was our actual server was the bartender. Our first encounter with her wanted to know if we wanted to order, not get our drinks, tell us about specials, etc. We quickly realized they had a large group in the back that everyone was working. It took 2 hours to have our whole meal when we were one of two non-large groups there. Food was cold, not seasoned well, and subpar for the price we paid. However, they were quick to get our check back to us. The manager gave us a free dessert that took 30 minutes to get to our table. It turned a celebratory dinner into a frustrating experience.

We hadn't been to BH in a long time and decided to give it a shot for brunch. The highlight was the chicken and waffle which was excellent, sadly the scrambled eggs ordered as a side arrived cold. As for the traditional eggs benedict, well, the eggs were poached beautifully and it came with a nice piece of ham, but overall it was not a success. The English muffin was not toasted, the sad amount of hollandaise barely covered the egg and the home fries were a cold blob. Really they should get rid of the home fries and go with regular fries or just stick with the salad and fruit. The service was friendly and professional.

First time visiting Blackwall Hitch. Ebonie J (#268) was our server and took great care. She is very friendly and explained the day's specials. She delivered our food in a timely manner and checked back on us at a good pace. I like the atmosphere of the restaurant - beautifully decorated and clean. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Would definitely visit again.

Our server was very friendly and personable, but two of the most popular items, crab dip and bayou penne, were out of stock. Unfortunately, those two were one of the main reasons we choose to come. We were told the crab dip was out while ordering appetizers, so we just rolled with it, and got a different appetizer. The fried pickles were okay, but the Chesapeake flatbread looked like something out of a microwave. We didn't find out about the bayou penne being out until we went to order our entrees, which made me upset because I overheard another server giving their table the rundown of what was out and what was not. Unfortunately I didn't catch everything the other server said, but if we were told about the crab dip and bayou penne being out from the beginning, we would have decided to go somewhere else, and saved 60+ dollars on two mediocre appetizers and drinks. How do you not stock up on the most popular dishes during an expected busy time?

The kitchen and bar were extremely slow. Even with reservations, they were not prepared to handle the number of patrons. Our waiter, Tyler, was phenomenal and was the night’s saving grace. He was apologetic, made good food and drink recommendations, and immediately acknowledged the delays and did everything in his power to improve the situation. The space is trendy, the food is delicious, and the drinks were good.

We have been to Black wall Hitch in the past and had a wonderful experience so we wanted to return. Unfortunately this experience wasn't so great. My son's food was over cooked (chard), my drink had to be returned, they were all out of crab dip appetizer and the restaurant itself was cold or it just could have been that we were by the window. I would like to return and hopefully have a better experience like the first time.

It okay as this was a business holiday dinner for my staff. Though they were not busy the food took sometime to come out. The food was delicious but the services left alot to be desired as we had to remind the waitress about previous requests. She just didn't appear present and intune to her duties at the annapolis location.

Service again was an issue as we started with a waiter and then without explanation another took over. The food was mediocre at best.

This past Sunday my wife and I along with our daughter had breakfast. Our server was amazing, as a manager in the hospitality industry it’s easy to point out a star. She was an African American lady and she has a 7 year old son. Great job!!!!

Born in Baw’more, so my sister and I expect a lot from restaurants when we visit the city...Blackwall Hitch totally delivered. Great decor, Tyree was an attentive server, and our food was yummy! Crab cake was pure chunks of crabmeat with nary a piece of filler and their crab soup was one of the best I’ve ever had. HIGHLY recommend to anyone!

Server was a young guy who completely ruined the night i had picked out for my wedding anniversary. i drove from pennsylvania to spend the weekend in baltimore & made reservations for 8:15. got there, everything was great until our server took forever to come ask our drinks. finally he takes our drink order & appetizers after 15 min wait. he goes missing again & comes back & forgot what we had ordered. he rushes to the bar & grabs our drinks & then tells us that the appetizers we ordered he forgot to put in so we would only be having entrees. furiously my wife and i asked for our check and left shortly after entrees arrived. very disappointed. i can say one good thing though, the food was exceptionally cooked, props the the back of the house.

I read some mixed reviews and decided to see for myself. The food was amazing, everyone enjoyed their meals. The service could have used sone work. Our appetizers and salads came before our drinks. It was 8pm on a Saturday night. Our waiter tried. Just needs some help from management.
