    The service was terrible. First we had reservations for 1:15 and didn’t get seated until 1:35. Once we got to the table it was dirty. The manager person that seated us brushed the crumbs away and said sit on that side. We selected from the restaurant week menu which we thought was a two course meal for $25, however we didn’t realize they up charged for the chicken & waffles of $13. Fast forward the food was good once we got it but took a long time coming out. After we ate it took about an hour to bring out check at which point we discovered the up charge. I think &38 is a bit much for that dish. It takes a lot for me to write a review I’m not the type of person that will send a meal back but in this case it was really bad which is disappointing because I love seafood.

    We spent almost $400….. the service was subpar. It took forever, we were hardly checked, she took my drink glass and didn’t ask me for a refill. We were there 2.5 hours and shouldn’t have been. I saw many other tables come and go in much less time then we were.

    Loch bar never dissapoints. The crab cake sandwich is outstanding, lots of jumbo lumps and a super siracha aoili. The know how to make crispy fries, with just the right amount of salt. The oyster bar is excellent as are the fried and rockefeller oysters. Our server is delightful, attentive but not overly so. Will keep going back!

    LOVE, Love their crabcakes! full of lump crab meat, good maryland style flavor. I can't get enough. That said, everything we've ever had there has been delicious. They know how to make crispy french fries, the nashville hot chicken is great, the crab benedict won high praises. They do a great job all around. Their wait staff is well trained, we haven't had poor service once, our favorite waiter is Ariana. She is delightful.

    Food, presentation, and drinks were absolutely great. I really wanted to try everything off the menu because what I experienced had me wanting so much more. From the alcoholic beverages to the entrée....... EVERYTHING WAS AWESOME. Didn't have to look for parking..... Valet was waiting & not expensive at all.

    Really good lobster roll and I am from Maine...Definitely know lobster rolls. As usual, scotch menu has 1 price and it shows up on the bill at a higher price. Same issue last year. Probably check again in another year or so.

    On a Saturday night when everything else was closing, we went to Loch Bar for late night drinks and oysters. Live music was playing which was great. We sat in the bar near where the live music was playing resulting in the energetic vibe and high noise level. We didn't mind the high noise level due to the music. Prior to coming this past weekend, we've visited and sat outside on their patio which the service is just as good (colder months they have heat lamps). Everyone is attentive, warm, and on top of it. This has become one of my favorite late night spots. Good for people visiting from out of town. Having a reservations is always best case scenario. Highly recommend!

    The building is lovely and the bar was very nice. The food, for me, was good, the fried chicken and mashed spuds were great, however my wife did not enjoy her fish and chips. The ‘mushy peas’ were not, it was green watery liquid, the fish, while fresh was not seasoned at all. The server was pleasant but the service should have been much better and more attentive, it was very quiet.

    $3 up charge for a neat pour of bourbon?! After spending $200+ on lobster and oysters, they have the audacity to upcharge for a neat pour? Nothing stating this on the menu and also no clear explanation from bartender. Seems to be poor etiquette and a money grab for something totally unnecessary. I’ve been here multiple times and never had this charge on any occasion. As for someone that dines out 5+ times per week, I’ve never experienced this anywhere throughout the city. If I come back, I will not have anything from the bar out of principal.

    It was our first time there; but, it won’t be our last!! We didn’t know they had Happy Hour on Sunday’s; so, that was nice surprise. We ordered wine and appetizers. We had the best Deviled Eggs we’ve ever had!! 😋 Then, we ordered dinner. I’ve been wanting a Lobster Roll and have been able to find a good one; this one was fantastic!!! 😋😋😋. My husband ordered the half fried chicken with the most amazing Brussels Sprouts ever!!😋. We truly enjoyed everything!! Also, the staff were friendly and helpful!! We can’t wait to go try some more food from the menu!!

    The big thing at the Loch Bar seems to be their whiskey menu. The food and wine offerings are fairly limited. The quality of the cooking is pretty good. The service on our visit was not so great, my entree went to another table by mistake and no compensation was offered while I sat and watched my wife eat. All the food seems over priced compared to other restaurants in town.

    They were able to accommodate our big party easily (with reservations of course). This is mainly a seafood restaurant but they also have other non-seafood options as well. We ate here for brunch. Got a lot of different things to share. Honestly the price of the food was a little high for what we got. There was nothing special about the food that I really remembered. I would not come back here just to eat. They do have 4 dollar mimosas and bloody Mary drinks for brunch at least.
