The food and service were both amazing! The standouts for us were the Bacon Steak, the biscuits, and the crab cakes and Red Brick Chicken. Already planning our next date night there!

Haven't been here since the pandemic started, but was very pleasantly surprised to see all the dividers separating all the tables! Every table felt private and therefore safe. Just had cocktails and appetizers but everything was delicious as normal!

This place is great for the ambiance and feel of a good experience, it’s their food that is the problem. The service is great, I enjoyed the seating and everything else BUT their food was not good.
I ordered the short beef hash ($20), it was cold & DRY, I mean dry dry. I ordered a side of cheese grits ($6) that was also lukewarm & an order of biscuits ($3) also cold. It was just a shame because the place is great & the service was great but the food sucked.
I would not be quick to try them again because they are expensive. Just not worth it for cold, dry food.

All I can say is Bacon Steak. If you like bacon, you will love Bacon Steak that comes drizzled with maple syrup. The other dishes I had were the special of the day "Lamb Chops" and the "Shrimp & Scallop Risotto". Both were delicious!

Great service!!! Excellent food!! We were there for a date night and I had a great time and felt safe. They did a good job of spacing people out and barriers so you didn’t see other guests. It was great! Crab cake was awesome!

Without going into too many gory details, the $36 filet mignon special was so overcooked that the manager took it off our bill. The Chesapeake pasta ($28) was watery and bland. We loved the flaming crab dip, but that won’t be enough to bring us back. It was a very disappointing experience for our 35th anniversary.

This establishment has done a wonderful job to keep its patrons feeling safe during uncertain times. There are dividers everywhere and the staff marks tables that have been sanitized as well as everyone wears masks.

The service from Nate was wonderful. Cocktails and red sangria were delicious. The food was cooked to perfection and was outstanding.

I highly recommend supporting this business during these uncertain times. You will not be disappointed and you will leave feeling really happy you did.

We enjoyed Sunday brunch at Blackwall Barn and Lodge this weekend. The social distancing environment was wonderful. Pretty much every table was private. The food was excellent, the servers attentive. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays with an old friend. I guarantee you will feel totally comfortable with the indoor dining environment.

This was our first visit to The Blackwall Barn and Lodge. We really like the casual elegant atmosphere. We were greeted warmly by the hostess. The waitstaff were friendly and efficient. The food exceeded my expectations. We enjoyed the Crispy Calamari, Scallop & Shrimp Risotto, and Pork Osso Bucco. The only negative was that background music was a bit too loud. Loud music makes everyone raise their voices to talk with one another. If the restaurant was at full capacity it would have been much too noisy. We will be back, for sure.

Very solid experience overall. It's not quite on the level of some of the best restaurants in the region but it's not as expensive either and the ambience and value are there.
