    Food was cold. Crab cake was listed as lump crabmeat but was claw meat. Really disappointing.

    Food was good but not great. Biggest issue was cleanliness. We were an early seating on an off night. But the restroom, vestibule and other areas were less than clean. The menu handout for the day’s specials looked as if it had been around for several days. Little things, yes. But they make an impression.

    I really like the food and atmosphere in this place. This is an "everyone chip in" and bust tables, greet customers etc. I had one issue that was addressed quickly. Our food got reprioritzed and we had a longer wait. The server took care of it without my asking and discounted my meal. they also honor their reservations Nd do not overlook.

    Great Thanksgiving buffet. Sadly mashed potatoes ran out and half of our party didn’t get them. But, the apology and offering of charging two adult meals as children's meals was very appreciated. Looking forward to coming back next year.

    The Thanksgiving Day Buffet line was a mess when we arrived for our reservation at 5 PM. Most of the pans for the side dishes were empty with no service staff in attendance on the buffet line. What was left was cold. The pans were replenished and some of the offerings (the green beans in particular) were delicious. The disorder of the buffet line definitely raised the anxiety of the customers. The service folk were overtaxed although they were pleasant and helped as they could. We five bused our own plates leaving them by a register. I definitely wished for more on every level. I would try a meal here on a less stressful day as the food was good. That would be my recommendation to anyone (including friends) who asked.

    We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with friends and were pleasantly surprised as all of the food was amazing! The Turkey was especially delicious and we all agreed it was the best we’ve ever had! Dinner was also very reasonably priced and well worth it when you consider we didn’t didn’t spend hours preparing and cleaning up! We will definitely be back!

    Second visit to this restaurant. First time for dinner & it was as good as it was when we first went. Our server, Ike, was instantly a likeable person. His knowledge of the menu & his wine recommendation worked perfectly. Both of our meals were cooked perfectly, served hot & in a timely manner. We will definitely go back.

    We really enjoyed our meal at Blackwall Hatch on Rehoboth Ave. It is a delightful place, great décor, comfortable seating, very clean. I had the peach glazed pork chop with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables which were green beans. Everything was delicious. Our waiter's name was Ike and he guided us through the menu with various recommendations. My husband had the seafood risotto which he enjoyed very much. I had the tomato basil soup as a starter that also was very good. To complete our meal we shared the chocolate strawberrycheese cake which was titled as Mom Mom'scheesecake, all we could say is YUM. Definitely one of our new favorite restaurants

    When you are seated across from a table of employees that see nothing wrong with sitting on their phones, carrying on, and being loud the whole time you are trying to enjoy your meal, it tells you a lot about the management of this establishment. One employee would chow down on her chips and then get up and start handling glasses and plates without ever washing her hands. Bathroom was not clean and they had just opened. Food was mediocre at best. We won’t be back.

    The food was very disappointing for all the guess. The 8oz filet was not grilled, maybe microwaved. Order medium rare came and well done with some type of clear watery stuff on the plate. The burger was overcooked. The vegetables were over cooked with the green beans being browns. Risotto was over cooked and dry and lumpy. The price the charge is way to much for the quality of food they deliver to the table. The service was good. The facility was clean.

    Blackwall Hitch - RehobothResponded on October 22, 2022Not the type of review we're used to seeing. Were you able to bring attention to this while dining with us? I hear you loud and clear on being unhappy, and we pride ourselves on ensuring every guest leaves pleased.

    A very disappointing experience. No one was assigned to our table so we waited a half hour before even seeing a server. Ordered tuna (big mistake) … chef, I’m sorry, has no idea how to prepare and the bed ingredients tasted like saw dust. Really a waste of time and money in a town with so many excellent restaurants. No, I didn’t make a fuss nor bring it to management, not my style, but the facts are still the facts.

    Ambiance was great. Restaurant was not crowded. Service was good considering our waiter was covering the entire dining room. Wife ordered pork chops and they were prepared beautifully. I ordered the Shoob which was a seafood Cobb salad. Unfortunately the salad was lackluster. It did not contain much seafood (two shrimp and hardly any crabmeat.

    The crab dip was inedible. Soaked in booze to flambe and it never burned off. The server was kind enough to take it off the bill. The risotto was over cooked and soggy. The rest of our meals were ok.

    Disappointing. Oysters had clearly been shucked hours before we ordered them, were desiccated and stuck to their shells. To their credit, they did provide us with fresh oysters when we expressed our dismay. Crab deviled eggs were liberally garnished with bacon to disguise the pitiful amount of crab. Bayou penne was the best thing we ordered, nicely spicy with 4-5 shrimp and a decent amount of sausage and chicken. Fair wine selection. Staff were as helpful and accommodating as they could be given the kitchen's deficiencies. Basically this is a Rehoboth tourist trap, you've been warned

    Brunch was good but food was just warm, not hot; could be because service was slow. Decor is very nice. Jazz band was playing. Music was nice but a bit loud to me - it made conversation a little difficult. But all in all, it was good and I would definitely go back.
