    I made a reservation for 3 and per the options were asked if we wanted a hightop or a regular table. I requested a hightop. When I got to the restaurant, my friends had been seated already (under our reservation) in a regular table near the door. After I had been hit by a server walking by (because the table location in the dining room). I inquired about moving us. I was told they do not have hightops for parties of 3, even though that is an option on the reservation page. I am assuming it was the manager, moved us to a very nice table - it was out of the way, it was quiet. He checked on us a few times which was very nice. Our waitress also had a large table, so our service was a little slow but we did not mind. Then, right after we had been served dessert (and was still eating it), and still with wine, the same manager (?) came up to us and asked if we could hurry it along because he had another party for that table. We told him that we would, but we were still eating our dessert and had wine. With the slow timing of the food/dessert we did not overstay…..it would have been appreciated if he had offered to move us to another table (there were a few on the patio opened). It was very rude and based on that not sure we will return to this restaurant. The food was good, the service was good - the management rude!!!!

    Making a reservation was the best. The food was ok, not the best for what we paid for it. My 15 year old daughter wanted to get the lemonade but she literally couldnt get over the fact it cost $10. Lol. The ambience and the staff though are extremely friendly and nice.

    Atmosphere was louder than expected and front dining room by the bar has several TVs playing. Most of the food was delicious, but my main course shrimp and grits was extremely salty and I couldn’t stand to finish it in one sitting. According to my husband and brother, their meals (seafood pasta and braised short rib) were outstanding.

    We were celebrating Father’s Day. I ordered a medium rare strip steak. It was on the medium side and tough. But for the sauce, it was not very flavorful. The potatoes and veggies were also very bland. I am going to pause on Blackwell for a while, as I am fairly sure there is a new chef, or the chef has lost their edge. The food is getting to average at best. On a positive note, the ham and bean soup was very good.

    We enjoyed ourselves. We were on the patio and it was loud out there which was due to another party that was very loud. We could hear their entire conversation. We were also surprised that brunch ended at 2pm. We expected it to end at 3pm. This could have been an oversight on our part. The staff was phenomenal and did everything they could to make sure that we got everything that we wanted before brunch ended. The man at the carving station was even kind enough to bring a plate out to me since when I had gone inside, he didn’t have any left. That was so kind of him and amazing service.

    We came for Fathers Day Brunch and it was fantastic. We already had high expectations from word of mouth, but the food was even better than advertised. My husband especially loved the shrimp and sausage gumbo and the roast beef. Will definitely be back soon!

    Outstanding first time experience here! Booked the Chef's table for my wife and I anniversary. We were placed right next to the fireplace. Our server, David, was incredible the whole night. Management also checked in with us throughout the night. The menu was superb. The charcuterie board, salad, trout, pork chops, and berry cobbler were all delicious! Chef Malcolm even came out to say hi and chat with us for a bit. My wife loved this surprise dinner and this is a great hidden gem in the area. Highly recommended!

    Alex was our server and we were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday. The food was simply delicious. I have been several times to eat here, however my bf have never been here, so I suggested it to him for his birthday and he was good with going. We started out with the amazing crab dip and Brussels sprouts apps. They were both awesome, however the crab dip was simply the best dip I have had in a long time. I highly recommend, along with two the signature cocktails we had to drink. Our entrees were the St Louis ribs and the Chesapeake pasta dish. I will say both entrees were filling and i highly recommend if you are going there. The ribs were nice and tender and the pasta had a lot of shrimp and lump crab meat, accompanied with the cream sauce. In fact, I have never had a bad meal at Blackwall Barn and Lodge. If you are ever in the area - give them a try. You will not be disappointed for sure. Thank you Alex for your amazing service. 😃

    I am a frequent Blackwell Barn & Lodge customer and the food and service never disappoints. This time, the service lived up to it impressive standards (even in these “pandemic times”), but I am bummed to say my salmon kale salad did not live up to past performances. The salmon was under seasoned and beyond over cooked. Hoping for a better showing on Father’s Day.

    First time dining at this establishment. It was an okay experience overall. We made reservations and seated right away. The ambiance is very nice, highly recommend a booth seat. The drinks were excellent. My old fashioned was perfect!!! We ordered the crab dip, which was okay at best. Our main dishes were pretty good. I had the shrimp and scallop risotto and my wife had the rockfish and shrimp. The main issue was our service. We had to flag down our waitress a couple of times, especially towards the end of our meal. And she seemed agitated or preoccupied at times. We were not blown away by the dining experience and had better food/service at the Blackwall Hitch in Alexandria and Annapolis.

    My wife booked this restaurant to celebrate my birthday and it was my first time here (she’s been before). Very nice, modern/farm decor…friendly staff. The Calamari appy was delicious…very tender and the batter was light and unique. I enjoyed my Chesapeake Pasta and my wife loved her Seafood Risotto. We didn’t stay for dessert as we had a cake waiting for us at home. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. A very nice evening.
