Rehoboth Beach Eats! Blackwall Hitch, Restaurant, Review, Bar, Sunday Brunch, Live Music, Inside The Glass Dinner Series, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Delaware Beaches, Welcome to the Beaches
It is the perfect time of the year to try one of Rehoboth Beach’s restaurants that opened this year. The summer crowds are gone. Locals come out and not having to pay for parking is a blessing.
So nice to get together with Debbie and Jody….birthday girl was Debbie. Arriving early at Blackwall Hitch located at 52 Rehoboth Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach. Tel. 302-226-0550. Website? http://www.theblackwallhitch.com/rehoboth
Blackwall Hitch looks amazing inside. Plenty of tables, comfortable enough that you are not on top of each other. It is so well appointed, very chic indeed.
The expansive bar is on the other side. From Wednesdays through Sunday live music begins at 9:30 p.m. until 12:30 p.m. For more info. on who is playing, please visit http://www.theblackwallhitch.com/rehoboth/live-music
Starting with The Blackwall Salad of mixed field greens, grape tomatoes, cukes, red onion and carrots, tossed with their signature house vinaigrette. A simple salad with flavor and big enough to share. I could have had a different starter but after eating my way through Portland, it was best to keep it low cal, if you get my drift.
The Chicken Lemongrass Soup was loved by Debbie and Jody…roasted chicken, lemongrass, celery and onions topped with a fried veggie dumpling.
People are talking about their Fish Tacos and our taco connoisseur, Jody, was the one to try them. She said they were amazing, full of flavor. Blackened Cajun Mahi-Mahi served in soft taco shells with spicy slaw, roasted corn salsa, avocado, feta cheese, pico de gallo and avocado sour cream, served with a side of herb pearled couscous.
My Striped Bass was delicious, as well. It was pan seared served with a chayote squash salad and lime butter sauce.
Debbie’s Salmon Kale Salad was colorful…Grilled Atlantic Salmon, basil oil and kale salad with roasted red beets, mango, and candied walnuts tossed in their poppyseed lemon vinaigrette.
No dessert was necessary even though there was plenty of temptation like Sminth Island Cake, Chilled Key Lime Panna Cotta, Monkey Bread, Chocolate Flourless Torte, Pineapple Upside Down Skillet Cake, Chocolate Truffles and more. But we were so good. Only coffee and tea, please.
Our server was attentive, more than attentive if I should say so. It is feast or famine, some don’t care and others care too much.
Every Sunday there is brunch beginning at 10 a.m. For more info. please visit http://www.theblackwallhitch.com/rehoboth/sunday-brunch

So what can I say about our dining experience? We loved the atmosphere, and the food was very good. I had been told that it was pricey, but we found that it was a la par to all other restaurants in Rehoboth Beach at that level.
Dinner is even better when we eat together, catching up is always priceless with Jody and Debbie.
