Blackwall Hitch honors the heritage of the Chesapeake Bay with a modern interpretation of a classic coastal tavern. We deliver an ambiance of relaxed sophistication, with service that pampers and delights and food that is simple, fresh and delicious.
Our sophisticated yet comfortable ambiance offers flexible gathering spaces for all occasions. Our menu draws upon classic American techniques while we look to our region for additional inspiration. Simply put, the best ingredients make the best food. Our menu is seasonally inspired with classic, local fare. To complement any meal we have an exceptional beverage program complete with creative cocktails and an extensive wine list and draught beer selection.
Our philosophy is genuine and simple: We are here to create a dining experience that is unique and exceeds expectations. Whether it’s our colossal Blackwall Prawn, oysters shucked at your request, or the wood-fired flatbreads rolled out daily, we deliver an experience you are guaranteed to remember.
