                        We only had appetizers. The space was nice, it was clean. The crab dip was just ok. No complaints but no praise. The wings were great. Cooked perfect, moist. The chili BBQ sauce was delicious.

                        Excellent food and service! Our dinner party thoroughly enjoyed the deviled crab eggs as an appetizer, along with the seafood risotto, blackened mahi mahi tacos, and the delicious pork chop with habanero sauce. We would highly recommend this place for impeccable service and great food.

                        I love listening the group. Hammond Hot Trio, service was good. I do not like the food. Besides being poorly presented, it is oily. Breakfast potatoes are mushy. Breaakfast flatbread is oily. A friend had a good caesar salad last month but I was jn the mood for brunch. I willl return for the music and perhaps Happy Hour but you need better cuisine, Prices are not cheap, you chaarge a good price, more than Victoria's on the boardwalk.

                        New Years Eve, expected limited menu but 3 choices with a $60/person was harsh and should have told us when we reserved…there was nothing on the website about a special menu. Ordered surf and turf ($10 more) and they seemed to have forgotten the crab in the crab cake (it was completely like a corn fritter that had no flavor at all. Completely missed a dinner (was a large party of 12) so that happens but did not receive the meal until everyone else was completely finished. Everyone said their food was ok but nothing special. We understand staffing is short everywhere…may want to consider limiting amount of customers in the future to give a better quality experience for the ones who do come..it simply did not feel like a special occasion. Will head back to our “go to” restaurant in Bethany next year.

                        We went for New Year's Eve and had the Prix fix menu. Honestly a bit disappointed in the quality of the service and the food. The soup I ordered was tiny and had almost congealed from all of the cream. The Entrees were good but the Surf and Turf I ordered came with a crab cake that was laughably small. Then the dessert of bread pudding had a hard crust on the outside from being heated and reheated. I've been to this restaurant in the past and it was good, so maybe it was just the NYE menu but the place was moderately crowded and the service was mediocre. We were eating our Entrees with our appetizer plates on the table for 20 minutes before they cleared it, and we had to ask for more water twice.

                        I enjoyed the Blackwall Hitch very much. My food was delicious, service was prompt, pleasant and professional and the atmosphere and decor were pleasing to look at. We came for NYE so my only negative feedback was no posting about a fixed menu in the website when I made reservations. Dinner was still exceptional but far more than we budgeted due to the fixed menu. We will return for regular menu meal. Highly recommend!

                        We went on New Years Eve 2021, not knowing about the preset menu, which was $60 pp 3 course meal. My meal was good. It included Oysters Rockefeller, Rockfish, with a flourless chocolate cake. My daughter had the same. The risotto was over cooked but everything else was good. My son got the 14 ounce steak, which was over cooked, and my husband paid $10 extra for Surf & Turf, which looked like it was enough for a child?? Super small steak and crab cake……not worth $70. The best thing about our experience was our waitress, and the timing of the food. It came out fast. Not sure we will return to this restaurant.

                        Took longer than expected to receive food. Over priced for selection and portions. Staff good initially. Soup and braised ribs delicious. A place we have been to several times and will try again. Unfortunately did not meet expectation for predetermined meal.

                        Brought friends from out of town with us. Very Disappointed … the day we dined they had introduced a new menu. Popular selections no longer offered. No catch of the day nor any specials.

                        We made a reservation for a party of 4 at 5:45 for the Thanksgiving Buffet. We are very disappointed. First of, they were out of many items that we were looking forward to for Thanksgiving. (Out of Sweet Potatoes, Cranberry Sauce, Prime Rib, Salmon, Pumpkin Pie — all items that were advertised on their menu for Buffet.) Second, food was very cold & aged in pots/pans. (Stuffing was burnt, Mash Potatoes were in balls, Mac N Cheese dry/ cold; much more.) Third, we had to keep asking for clean plates & refilling empty pans. We had to keep asking for our server to remove plates & items from our table… We called when making this reservation to just confirm that the buffet would be operating until 8, allowing us enough time to enjoy our dinner. We are frequent customers of the location located in Annapolis as well. Again, very disappointed with this location of The BlackWall.

                        We were there for Thanksgiving. The food was delicious. Many options. Only pies for dessert but they were good. One person in our party was in a wheelchair and everything worked fine. Good handicap bathroom. Staff was extremely kind, attentive and accommodating. It was very loud with tables close together. Very glad we came early. Would definitely do Thanksgiving there again. Looking forward to trying this restaurant on a regular day.

                        Good food preparation. My wife and I both had the rockfish dinner which was very well prepared. Served hot and a most generous portion of rockfish. Our server, Sean, was very attentive to our needs and provided us with good service. The only negative was the fact that it was a bit noisy due to a large family gathering which had some very young, and crying, children as part of their party.
