Fried green tomato app was the best! Swordfish was cooked perfectly as well as the pork chop. Totally recommend!

Went here for my birthday and everyone in the party had a great meal. I liked it way more than Eden. Our waiter was prompt and checked in regularly on us. Oysters were delicious too.

Dirty Hitch is the main reason we go there for a nice martini. Glass was poured a little short which is the only issue we had on the final round.

Excellent experience at Blackwall. Our server Rita was the right mix of friendly and efficient. Food was beautifully presented and coursed in a timely manner. Delicious shrimp appetizer and “off the chain” Mahi Mahi tacos. My husband was impressed with the pork chop. Would definitely eat here again, so glad we chose this restaurant.

I thought the food was delicious. But I was disappointed with the portion size of the meal. 2 scallops and 2 shrimp on risotto is more like an appetizer than an entree. I left hungry.

Restaurant was empty even though the streets were filled with people. Server was ok. Nothing stuck out about him. Ordered the watermelon salad, it was literally a 3x4 chunk of watermelon with feta thrown on it on top of a little bit of arugula with balsamic glaze. Should of been $6 max. It was $10. Other meals were chicken wrap. It was ok but the fries were ice cold. The burger was ok also but again with ice cold fries. The people working there were less than enthusiastic. Nothing we had was great it was just “mah”. The empty restaurant should’ve been the warning.

We loved this restaurant when it was Blackwall Hitch. Now it is Blackwall on the Beach and they don't have the black wall or any of what was so cool about the atmosphere. Now it is farmhouse chic meets industrial left over from before. I could get over the atmosphere given that it is on Rehobeth Avenue and perhaps it was a little too upscale for the location. But not excited to dine with individuals who have barely covered from the beach. The food was completely hit or miss. Let's face it, having not been to a restaurant since March due to COVID, I wanted something lovely and memorable. The Maryland crab soup had no crab. The watermelon gazpacho on the other hand was delicious. Spicy, fresh, crisp in flavor. I had high hopes for the rest of the meal. But it too was 1 for 2. Crab cake was generous and delicious. The Mahi Mahi tacos were so overdone I could have bounced them on the floor. They were spongey and flavorless. The corn slaw on the side was very good. Our server was new. Didn't know anything about the history of the place or the menu. Never recommended the daily special.
Seemed overwhelmed. Meanwhile the bartender was serving the table next to us and she seemed to be delightful and experienced. Would take a lot for me to go back.

We met friends here for a slow drinking and dining evening and the waiter was so accommodating and cook about our pace. Yet we waited tor nothing! It never felt rushed and the food was awesome! The peach salad was soooo good! We will be back next summer for sure as it’s one of our go tos every summer!

We visited this restaurant when it first opened...sadly the quality/ambiance has deteriorated since then. Our service was very slow, even though the restaurant was almost empty. Our appetizer arrived after our entrees, and our food was barely warm...and mediocre at best. We were very disappointed.

The food was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend going for dinner just for the food. Our server was not great unfortunately, we had a hard time communicating with him and he wasn't very friendly. The food came out pretty fast but unfortunately our server never followed up to make sure we were enjoying our food nor to ask if we needed anything else. He only came back when we were finished, took our plates and gave us the check. So, if you want amazing food and don't care about the service, this is a great night out.

Drinks and bartender amazing she was also our waitress. Great ambiance, cool design, the food however left a little to be desired for the cost. The Bayou pasta was greasy and had little to no flavor. My crab cake was greasy. For 6 people, two of which got side dishes as entrees $250 seems a little steep. BTW, it was not busy so that cannot be an excuse.

Pretty casual spot with good food - not great, but not bad. Pretty pricey, though, for what you actually get. On this particular experience, they were out of a lot of things. We didn't find that to be the case at any of the other restaurants in Rehoboth so I don't think you can blame it on COVID. Server knowledge was pretty modest, too. Overall - a genuinely ok spot but way over priced for what you get.

The food was okay, our sever was great. In the end we felt like the food was overpriced. Had it been a bit lower in cost, it would’ve compensated for quality.

My girlfriend and I have four children ranging in age from 7 to 13-year-old. The restaurant it’s not cheap however it’s not unreasonable. But it’s definitely worth every penny. The food was very very good service was energetic polite and helpful and just overall great. Manager stopped over to see how her night was going he was very friendly and energetic. The decorations and the entire mood in the restaurant were very well done. The kids menu had a nice amount of selections. The adults menu speaks for itself when you read it, the food was cooked perfectly and prepared perfectly. We had two cocktails I do not remember the names they also were well prepared. We will definitely be going back next time we’re at Bethany Beach

Went for brunch on Sunday. The food was terrible. Ordered an adult portion of pancakes and they pancakes were thin and small. Pancakes are cheap to make so it wouldn’t be hard to make a decent sized portion. Also ordered biscuits and gravy. The sausage in the gravy was just sliced sausage links. I’ve never seen that, ever. The food was also served basically cold. The final straw was the coffee. It was like the grounds were used 3 times. Then we were charged for refills. At breakfast, there was music blaring. The entire experience from food to service and atmosphere was terrible.
