Such an awesome brunch meal. The food and atmosphere was outstanding. It was Rehoboth Jazz Festival weekend. So the added perk of a brunch with a very good jazz group was a good experience.

Excellent service. They forgot to give us our appetizer- the manager on duty came over and apologized- gave all of us free desserts and coffee on the house. Loved the hospitality ❤️

The food was tasty for the price. The jazz musicians were great for Rehoboth Jazz Weekend. The nice part they didn't have a cover charge.

Four of us had lunch. The food was good and the seats outside were great on a warm October day. Our server was trying very hard but we could tell that she was not the most experienced server. Having said that we enjoyed her and it did not hurt the overall experience.

Fried Green Tomatoes, Shobb Salad an s Shrimp Tacos were all excellent. Crab Soup was over priced for a cup that that called a bowl. It was very salty and not much Crab. Our Server was very attentive and nice, but the Manager was a bit uneasy and stand offish which gave a weird vibe to the interaction.

We went out for our Anniversary Dinner and we're seated right away in the modern dining room. Our Server ISSAIC or Ike he said stopped and greeted us immediately with a warm welcome and promptly returned moments later.
We started off with Prosecco on the house and Ike explained in detail the menu. The food was amazing good and the mains were delicious. Crab cakes were amazing as was our dessert.
Reasonably priced great service and attentive as he was on top of his game making our night a memorable one. Like Arnold said I'll be back!!!!

I had a wonderful time celebrating my boyfriends birthday this weekend. This was a total random pick and it did NOT disappoint. When we got there it was rather very busy and there was nowhere to be found in the hostess stand which was understandable seeing as how it was all hands on deck on a weekend and it was very very busy. The wait was bearable and after we were seated I could tell that there was some legit teamwork going on. Everybody was helping everybody out with each other’s table and bringing out their food and really making sure everybody’s experience was top notch. The food was top notch and would totally recommend and will definitely be coming back again. I got the filet mignon with mashed potatoes and spinach with a side of rice and my boyfriend got the fried shrimp, for apps we also got their chicken wings; all were delish & that’s coming from an Uber picky eater like myself!

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner! We decided to sit at the bar due to what seemed to be staff shortages, so we figured we'd skip our reserved table. The bartender was great! I'm so sorry not to remember his name. Our food was nothing short of fabulous! These days, we all need to have patience and flexibility when going out and adjust expectations accordingly. A perfectly delightful evening!

We had a lovely dinner outside last night at Blackwall Hitch. Delicious food, wonderful service, with a gentle breeze off the ocean. The menu has something for everyone. My husband especially liked the seafood flatbread! We'll definitely be back!

When my wife and I ate here recently they were operating with one server and one bartender for the entire restaurant. Even with minimal help, our server Margaret brought our food out as quickly as she could and with no errors. In a situation that could have gone south very easily, she remained in high spirits and performed her job at a high level.

We first visited this restaurant in June. It was so outstanding we came here two nights in a row. Love the menu. We live in Arizona and are back in Delaware visiting family. We had to return. This restaurant will be added to our annual beach visit. A nice variety of menu items. Great for all palates from adult to children.

We had 2 amazing dinners at Blackwall Hitch this week. My wife and I had such a great dinner that we invited 4 other people to join us for dinner on Saturday evening.
the daily catch - Blacked swordfish was perfectly prepared and delicious. The flatbreads and the scallops dinner were also excellent.

My wife and I had seen but never tried this restaurant and were looking forward to a dinner on the Rehoboth Avenue sidewalk. The restaurant appeared to be seriously understaffed, as we waited 10-15 minutes until a server came to our table. She acknowledged the lack of personnel. With that behind us, we ordered a bottle of wine and our dinner. We anticipated long waits for food but were pleasantly surprised by getting our appetizers and salads fairly quickly. The mussels and caprese and Arcadian harvest salads were very good. For entrees, my wife had the trident combo (salmon, shrimp and crab cake), which was fine but nothing special, while my Chilean sea bass had some kind of oily substance on it that left a bad after taste. If we had stopped at wine and appetizers, I would have given the experience 3 stars. But adding the entrees, the high "Rehoboth" prices and the poor service made this restaurant a 1 star experience. Blackwall prices itself near the top of the scale of RB restaurants but does not deliver the food and service to go with it.

Bartender got the drink order wrong. Then no substitute for the potatoes as requested with no offer to correct it. Our bill was given to another table who was charged for it. When we found out we warned them to check the credit card statement. Food was lousy dry heavily breaded calamari. Dry crab cake and salmon. Needed a senior manager to take charge. The kids working there lacked the experience

Exceeded my expectations! From a quick seating to an attentive waiter the service was fantastic! The menu had a nice selection of starters and entrees. Try one of the flatbreads - deliciousness! Everything was beautifully plated and the food outstanding. Firecracker Shrimp tacos are a must try! Salmon cooked to perfection served with shrimp and a crab cake. Definitely recommend.

Not sure why the interior lighting was lit up like a Kmart. Also, for an 8:45 reservation there was no bar service….we wanted cocktails with our dinner.

Confused by presentation. First, server says they light the crab dip on fire and it’s “really cool”. So of course you order it… apparently they light it on fire in the back/kitchen. Not so cool for us….

Ordered two kids pasta dishes. They were presented differently, with different amounts of food. Didn’t make sense at all….

My filet was over cooked.

We were seated at a wobbly table. Then they moved us to a booth…great. Except the air conditioning vent on the ceiling was dripping condensate on our table. Looking up, all of the vents were like this. I was dodging drips of water the whole time.

Wait staff vaping indoors, in the kitchen and in between pushing food to tables. Very much a turn off…

Probably wouldn’t go back because of these things. The food and experience was not worth it.
