Honestly this place deserves five stars just from the oysters and their frozen froze drink.
This place is definitely on the higher end of cost but honestly for me and if you also really love oysters this is a good place to go. Also their food is really good and the staff is super nice and honestly some of the best drinns I’ve ever had. I definitely say it’s worth treating yourself to this place once in a while.

Had a wonderful experience, from the time I entered to well after. The service was outstanding! My food was delicious. I ordered the crab cake entree. The portion size of the crab cakes was very generous. I'll definitely be back!

My partner and I have been to this restaurant before and loved it so we immediately decided to come again when we were back in town. We made 8:30 reservations on open table. We were seated immediately, great. After approximately fifteen minutes (in a completely empty restaurant) our server approached us and when we went to say our drink order he stopped my partner mid sentence and said “you have to order all of your food first actually because the kitchen is closing at 9” He was insistent that our we ordered food and we were not prepared. So he said he would come back and still not take our drink order. Another 15 minutes later he came back and we ordered two cocktails, two appetizers and two entrees. It took 20 more minutes for our cocktails to come out which was immediately followed by our entrees. The server never came back and checked on us because we had to ask another server for a steak knife. We then has to stop our server to ask where our appetizers were and his response was “they are coming” meanwhile we already had our entrees. We had to cancel our appetizers and never had a chance to order another drink because by then it was last call. As we understand the new regulations with COVID-19 and understand the many changes that have taken place especially with the timeline our server could of been more attentive and polite. Also the restaurant should consider not allowing late reservations if that is the going to be the case. The whole overall experience was disappointing and honestly unacceptable for a restaurant of that caliber.

This was the worst restaurant service I’ve ever had. In fact there was zero service. My boyfriend and I were seated in a corner two person table on the outside patio due to covid and other than the bus person no one ever came to our table to even take a drink order. After sitting there being ignored for 30 minutes as the waiter and the manager passed us by several time we got up and walked out. Glad we didn’t waste our money there because this walking out caused us to find two other places that were fantastic they were the disco pizza place and the elk room. I highly recommend spending your money at these two places where your business is appreciate.

Some of the worst service. We ordered 2 drinks, charcuterie board, salad and crab cake sandwich. They messed up half the order then took 30 minutes to bring a new drink / salad out....

Taylor was a wonderful Server! Our food and drinks were wonderful; its a shame the weather didn't cooperate, it was chilly and windy but there's nothing anyone could have done to correct that part of our dinner. We're looking forward to our next visit.

Not a good experience overall. The good-- oysters were great and the server was very good and did his best to keep us happy despite the major problems with the restaurant. However, there must have been a problem in the kitchen. Took 50 mins for soup and a salad to come out (aren't these pre-made?) Then the entrees another 50-60 mins after the soup. Server kept apologizing and gave us a free drink but there was little he could do. They started playing very loud live music at 9 pm and we couldn't hear each other speak. It's a restaurant not a club. They insisted on moving us outside but wouldn't make the volume more reasonable so we could stay at our inside table. Sea Bass was good but the lobster roll was stringy and tough and the french fries with the lobster roll were cold and stale (? sitting under the heat lamp for those 60 mins we were waiting). Expensive and overall a bad value. We wouldn't return and can't recommend Loch Bar.

I ordered the Maine lobster and the waitress acted as if I couldn’t afford it when she told me how much it was.
To her surprise and I not only could afford the Maine lobster but a few other items on the menu and I left her a generous tip. My advice to the management is train your servers to have more tact and decorum. This is 2020, Black people have been able to afford nice things for decades.

Mike our server had too many tables but he was still working hard and trying. The Mac and cheese lobster was amazing as well as the club sandwich. The salmon was okay

Loch Bar should be a dining destination for those who enjoy fish, seafood, and cocktails in an upscale, harbor-side location. First, get seafood. Oysters from east to west, beautiful shrimp, clams, and chilled lobster should be your appetizers. Have a glass of sparkling wine...you deserve it! I had a wonderful creation called the Chesapeake Club sandwich. Perfectly assembled shrimp salad, a crab cake, and a fried oyster on white toast dressed. Pair this with a well-thought cocktail, wine, and beer program and you're set for a super meal!
