I was very pleased with my overall experience here. Although the patio was closed, the food and drink were amazing! I was impressed with each item from cocktails to appetizers to entrees. Never been much of a desserts person but I’m sure that it wouldn’t disappoint.

My waiter, Stan the man, had another party he was attending to that left him a little unavailable in the beginning but his attention to detail, personality and awesome recommendations made it worthwhile.

I can’t wait to go back!

Very nice ambiance. I thought that it had a very good and varied selection of food, beer and wine. The service was fine. The manager was very attentive to our dining needs throughout the evening. Excellent location for a birthday celebration, complete with a birthday card with messages of congratulations written by the entire waiting staff.

Great location! I was disappointed the rooftop wasn’t open, because it was a gorgeous day. We may have arrived too late for the buffet. Everything looked picked over. The waitress was really nice once we finally got her attention. Will definitely come back on a non buffet night. The regular menu looked amazing. I can’t wait for the opportunity to try it.

My husband and I were quite surprised by how terrible our experience at Blackwall Hitch was given its high ratings, rave customer reviews and the foodie articles I found praising the place. We went with anticipation and were sorely disappointed. No part of the meal was quite right - we waited 10 min for our reserved table, our server was awkward, the crab dip (recommended to us by the server) was too salty, my husband's main course (crab carbonara) was so salty it was inedible, my main course (the rockfish with crab) was both under and over seasoned, and our side dish of cheese grits were so dense it was like trying to push a fork into a wall. All of these flaws made the restaurant seem incredibly over-priced. This was only our 6th meal in a restaurant in 16 months which added to our disappointment.

Love the atmosphere at this lively Eastport restaurant. Thought I booked for brunch on Saturday at noon but was disappointed that they only serve it on Sunday. I chose a crab and avocado salad which was wonderful, My family members ordered a burger and caprese salad with no complaints on the taste. We split a piece of Smith Island cake three ways in honor of a birthday. Service was friendly but did not check on us for drink refills or to see if everything was okay with the food.

We wanted to love it. Every one of the staff was friendly and helpful. Service was quick. But our bill was over $100 for two bowls of soup, two very small sandwiches with fries, and two Diet Cokes. The Diet Cokes were $4 each and they actually put the can on the table. Granted the sandwiches were crab cake and soft shell crab, but they were very small and didn’t have much flavor. I grew up eating soft shell crab and Maryland Crab Soup, and these weren’t it, unfortunately. I think the place is geared toward tourists.

Delicious food. Good menu selections. I would go again for lunch or dinner. Very convenient to get to and it has its own parking lot.

The overall visit was good.

The server had only been there for a month. This appears to be the trend with restaurants these days. However, she was very courteous and our order was correct.

Unfortunately, there were a few flies in the restaurant. So the server provided napkins to cover our food.

I would visit the restaurant again.

I took a group to the Annapolis location for lunch. It was so good on all levels, I promised to bring my wife back for dinner. We made it back and it did not disappoint. I had the Buffalo Chicken Thigh sandwich the first time.....amazing. the second time my wife and I had the Filet Mignon with Spinach and whipped potatoes. It was perfectly cooked, hot when delivered and a great size meal for $40. The decor is so trendy, clean lines. The servers was professional, quick and always checked on us. We cannot wait to return.

Our server was so sweet and the atmosphere is great.
However, the bar was backed up and it took us 35 minutes to get first cocktail. As parents who rarely escape their kids, I wanted a cocktail in about 35 seconds. A manhattan is a pretty straight forward cocktail and each one of the three I had (don't judge) was made slightly differently. The food was good and portions are well sized. The Halibut special was great. My friend's chicken dish was not great. The tuna tartare appetizer was delicious. Deserts were great too.

The food was quite good -- we had a mix of salads, seafood, and roast chicken and it was all great. Fried Green tomato appetizer was phenomenal. Even the kids menu pasta and pizza was terrific. Highly recommend.
