*Menu items vary by location

As the saying goes, “Change is in the air.” With more sunshine & less chill, it’s certainly becoming that time of year. And with the warm weather, I’m proud to introduce you to Blackwall Hitch’s 2018 Summer menu. I’ve teamed up with our local Blackwall chefs to bring you a new menu that features some of our old favorites along with new dishes that draw on the regional spirit of the waterfront communities that we call home. Our coastal-inspired cuisine features award-winning seafood sourced locally in the Chesapeake Bay along with dishes that draw from the rich farming communities of the land. And don’t worry about dessert, we’ve got all our sweet-toothed guests covered as well!

From our beautifully appointed patios to the cleverly crafted drinks, Blackwall Hitch will surely have you hooked as the destination experience for your summertime culinary journey. So, what are you waiting for? Come on over and enjoy our light & lively Summer fare while taking in the bright days & warm nights with good vibes, great drinks & fantastic fare.
