Bascom's Chop House
Dinner on 6/8/13Had a wonderful meal and Harry was an excellent waiter. Extremely knowledgable on wine and nothing was too much trouble. Many establishments could learn a lot from Bascom's and especially Harry!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMweekend specialTheir special filet was excellent, melted in your mouth.

The atmosphere was initially intimate but as it began to fill up the noise level became so high that conversation was difficult. The waiter was very knowledgeable and took time to explain the menu. However, he forgot that I had ordered a sauce on the side for my steak and it came out on it. This would have been okay but I did not care for the sauce (he had recommended it). He did offer to take it back but I just scraped it off. The streak otherwise was cooked well. My date had no issues with her order. The sides were quite good and drinks were refilled frequently.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingService was great our server I believe her name was Kathy. She was so friendly courteous , professional . And attentive to our needs. Thank you very much!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT!My wifeI had a wonderful meal of Grouper with Lump Crab. Delicious! I thoroughly enjoyed
A Bone-In Ribeye.....cooked perfectly Medium.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wine list pricing wasThe wine list pricing was a little too rich for our blood & the I-pad wine list was not user friendly. The wine special we ended up with was very good and reasonable though.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent excellenceWe don't eat out very often but when we do we know we will be more than satisfied with our entree choices. Bascoms has never failed to impress us with the taste and quality of their food. Service is exemplary. I never hesitate to recommend Bascoms and we can always count on perfection when we have company to take out.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience. We allWonderful experience. We all ordered steaks. Server was excellent. Loved the wine list. It included reasonably priced wines as well as expensive wines. Only improvement could mention is that the one of us ordered our steak medium and it was more medium well to well and another person ordered theirs medium well and it was more medium. However, we all enjoyed the food regardless. We requested a booth and the location of it was perfect. It was off to the side and it was easy to hear each other.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeOur server was dynamite, the food exceptional and the steaks cooked perfectly!

All perfectly done and delicious. Dont' forget the expresso martini and flourless chocolate cake for dessert..So delicious.,..service is impeccable...from business to romantic dinners this place is perfect every time!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWould definitely recommendAlthough the location is nothing to write home about, the food and service was great! We happened to go on Mothers Day, and there was a spectacular buffet. You could also chose from their menu, but we opted for the buffet. I wasn't too pleased that the automatic 20% tip (for parties of 6 or more) was added on to our bill for a buffet. But other than that, no complaints. I would recommend Bascoms for a special occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experience.although I prefer table seating over a booth for a romantic meal, I certainly appreciated the booth seating. It provided a more and semi private setting for my girlfriend and I. Also I ordered flowers through open table were on table Before we arrived. On Mothers day they served a buffet so we had a variety of foods to sample and everything was delicious bbutthe prime rib was so tender you could cut it with a butter knife. service was also magnificent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing, Amazing, AmazingAmazing, Amazing, Amazing it does not get any better.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful SteakGreat service, excellent wine menu and best steak I have had in a long time.

Seated next to an opening to a large party that got rather noisy, so look out for that if you want an intimate space. Probably can accomodate if I had asked. Food was great. Porterhouse was perfect as was my wife's grouper. Nice to see the anchovies on the Caesar salad. Might have had dessert but no place to put it. Next time.

My wife had the salmon special, she loved it. The salmon was done just right.
I had a pork chop with fries, amazing, I love getting the fries, they come in a cone and they stay really hot that way. We had a great bottle of Pinot from there extensive wine list, and the service just made our night.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and the service good but non-communicative. We noticed other tables with different waitstaff being shown desserts on the e-menu but ours had been removed. Apparently there had been a number of reservations made for the same time as our party and we were asked to wait, then seated and then asked to move which was not impressive. My guests were first timers at that restaurant, from out of state, and it was embarrassing.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the prime rib andEnjoyed the prime rib and loved the waiter, george3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lobster app was amazingThe lobster app was amazing and the steaks were done to perfection, My only disapointment no oysters on the half shell1/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, service, wine wereThe food, service, wine were amazing.
