  • "The chilled cucumber soup with Cajun spices was a great way to start off a meal. I've been here many times before, but this was the first time that I had the Charlestown Meeting House crab. I'm so glad that I did; it was an excellent choice!"

  • "Food, ambience, service exceptional . When a resturant can deliver a great experience even when short handed and extremely busy the entire staff should be commended thank you"

  • "Today we went to the Tavern to try that menu and also the locals menu which is a three course menu for $32.50. From the Tavern menu I had the Rum/Molasas painted salmon with sweet potato fries. From the Locals menu we had the Butter Lettuce and avacato salad. Then we had the 10oz NY Strip Steak and finally the awesome carrot cake. Those three items were just $32.50 What a bargin. Vickie was our server and couldn't have been more helpful and a delight for us to have her take care of us."

  • "Several great specials that night. Ceasar salad was substantial and not overpowered with dressing. View of the Delaware River was very refreshing and made for a wonderful casual evening. The upside down crab and lobster chunks with mango appetizer was delightful and filling and hit the spot on a warm summer evening. There is outside seating on the terrace but was not aware until after seated."

  • "We had a lovely brunch on the Delaware. I had very good shrimp and grits which I would rarely have outside of the south. My partners had steak and eggs which were cooked to their specifications. The meal included appetizer, granola and yogurt, and dessert. I highly recommend."

  • "I can't begin to say how pleased I was with the Black Bass! I took the family here to celebrate my husbands bday and we loved the food, service, and had an amazing view of the Delaware. Not only did all the staff wish my hubby a Happy Bday but they gave him a card and a box of chocolates. If you are looking for a special place to go the Black Bass is perfect! The 3 course meal is so wonderful! I had steak and eggs and the scones are freshly baked! I give this experience an A+! Thank you so much."

  • "Long story but I was given a dinner for two by my boss as an apology. It was sweet revenge, from the spinach salad to the pastrami spring rolls to the lamb in mint jalapeño sauce to the homemade cinnamon chocolate chip ice cream. Top it off with a romantic walk across the Delaware River on the pedestrian bridge."

  • "First time to Lumberville, PA and was not disappointed. Quite a view with the Delaware River running beside the restaurant. The indoor, historical decorations are a must see, and will leave you walking the restaurant, asking to step around people's tables to find the next treasure. The drinks were professionally made, very authentic. Paired with the fabulous food choices, it's a spot I would recommend, and if I'm back in PA in the near future, would dine at again."

  • "My wife and I celebrated her birthday on the outdoor dining patio of the hotel. The food was excellent and the staff very capable. The view of the Delaware was relaxing and scenic. We plan to return for a cozy and romantic stay in the hotel for my birthday this winter."

  • "Chateaubriand for two (69.00) was very chewy and fatty. Both my husband and I could not finish it. Brought it home, and can bring in the remainder to show you how fatty and grisly it was. As an amends they gave us one dessert to share. We were extremely disappointed, as it was a very special occasion, and we paid full price for the whole dinner. Certainly not worth the money, and poor response from manager. Very sad and sorry, and will not be able to recommend your restaurant to anyone."

  • "The hostess was inexperienced,said flat out that we did not have reservations, lucky for us that there were still available tables. The wait staff was friendly and made up for management!Food was good!"

  • "The Black Bass is one for the prettiest and most romanric restaurants in Bucks County. The food has really improved and the soft shell crabs that I had were excellent. My husband really liked the duck and the wine list was also very good. We will go back again soon"

  • "My recent Sunday brunch at Black Bass seemed not on a par with prior visits. On the plus side, our server was very attentive and the view and ambience terrific as always. Our server and the kitchen also accommodated my diet with a cheese a plate rather than the high carb first course options. All very impressive. My first negative reaction came when the leg and full pastry server arrived. My friend can eat pastries and her option was either one little lemon poppy seed muffin or a scone. Not even one of each. And this is a $35 pp brunch! Next was the fruit cup w yogurt and granola. I expected fresh berries but it seemed to be canned fruit. Did I mention $35 pp?? The main course omlet was ok but not great. Is the business in trouble?"

  • "We chose this restaurant because of the location, and its great reputation. The dinner was very good, my entrée, the lobster item on the menu, was a bit too rich and heavy for my liking. The service was fair at best. Our server took a long time to get to our table, and was not the most professional especially for a high class/pricey restaurant. "

  • "The Black Bass never disappoints. We've been going there for years for special occasions. Love the view, rain or shine. Our server was excellent."

  • "We have been coming to this place for our anniversary dinner every year (minus a few where we were out of town). I would like to say that it gets better every year but not true. This year we were placed near another couple who were very loud and obviously had tipped a few before coming to the restaurant. We asked to be moved and it was complied with. The service person kept pushing us. We wanted to take our time and enjoy our one night out at a leisurely pace. The wine list could have included a couple other common varieties. The food was good, not excellent compared to previous years. Next year we may change locations for our anniversary dinner, or maybe not."

  • "This is a lovely old riverside eatery. We met very critical friends for dinner there, and they were charmed by the place. The food is just about flawless--fresh and flavorful salads, calimari to die for and my seared scallops and pork belly entree was impeccably prepared and absolutely delightful. Our waitress was skilled, but she was overburdened. It was a crowded night. As a result, we had some overly long waits for drinks and again between courses. Otherwise, no complaints whatsoever."

  • "I think the Black Bass needs to decide what it is or wants to be. It opened as a fine dining place and is now a hang-out for bikers wearing biking clothing showing off their junk. If I want to eat like that I go to Dilly's and I most assuredly should have gone there on Monday. For $30.00 all of us would have had a better lunch than the $108.00 I spent. To be fair about three weeks earlier I had dinner there and it was good. The wait staff is excellent to good and the place is beautiful. I think Management wants heads at any cost and is creating lunch to match the client. The only way I will return is if I am invited."

  • "It was a lovely day so we drove an hour to get the the Black Bass in order to sit on their deck - only to find all tables were reserved. So we sat by the window looking down on empty tables on the deck the entire time we were there. The lunch menu is limited but the food was good. When the bill came we'd been charged $12 for an apple tart so small it barely registered on the plate - instead of the 9$ menu price. Then it took them longer to fix the bill than it had to serve lunch. So, its a lovely spot with good food but the service needs to be taken up a notch or two."

  • "We took Mom out for Mother's Day and enjoyed the entire experience. The roasted rhubarb salad was delicious. The special, king salmon with Thai coconut curry and crabmeat, was absolutely fabulous. It was truly one of the best salmon dishes I've ever had. The view is beautiful. While we sat indoors, we had a wonderful window seat with a view of the river below and the bridge. We noticed there were tables outside below as well. Mom got the sea bass with edamame which she thoroughly enjoyed, and Dad enjoyed the Atlantic salmon which was on the menu. This is an ideal place for a special occasion. Love the old inn feel; quaint and welcoming, yet with modern amenities. I would return in a heartbeat!"

  • "We returned here after about 20 years and still found the Black Bass to be a charming place to eat. The food was very good, the service was also very good. I had the scallops and fried pork belly entree and it was excellent. The mushroom soup was great as was the Artichoke salad. It was a great night on the river even though we chose to eat indoors."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I was looking forward to dining here but was very disappointed with the food. My appetizer was mushroom soup and it was very good but both our dinners were mediocre at best. Would not be visiting here again as it was very expensive and not worth the money."

  • "We took a friend for a birthday lunch on a beautiful spring day. Since it was a bit windy we opted to eat inside by the windows. Our whole experience--welcome, serving staff (Karen), and food selections were excellent. We will come again."

  • "We have dined at the Black Bass Inn & Restaurant (mostly it's the latter) for nearly forty years now, and have seen its ups and downs. A few decades ago it got by largely on the basis of a spectacular setting on the banks of the Delaware River and an utterly charming, unrestored building of indeterminate but venerable age that reeked of history. But aside from the most spectacular billi bi soup I've ever tasted, the food was entirely forgettable. Not so yesterday, when we returned after an absence of perhaps ten years to find the both the building and the cuisine vastly improved. By "improved" I mean upgraded in a way that did not do violence to the historicity of the great building while offering a menu of really outstanding dishes. "

  • "nice time good attention to our birthday celebrations - but portion size on the local's menu for the entree was a bit small and disappointing. Taste was great but portion was too small"

  • "I've been to this restaurant before and always enjoyed my experience from start to finish. My last visit was just as enjoyable except for one major flaw…my entree. I ordered the crispy roast duck and it was not even close. The breast meat was Ok, but the leg and thigh were like rubber as I couldn't even cut it with my knife. I made several attempts to remove the meat from the skin and bone and had little success. The rest of my meal was very good as was the meal my wife ordered ( the 14oz NY steak ). I'll return to this establishment because I believe they work hard to get it right and I really enjoy the atmosphere. I also think the waitstaff is outstanding and very polite and professional and always do their best to make you feel welcomed."

  • "We had always talked about going there for dinner and went for our anniversary dinner. The food was amazing, view beautiful. At the end of our dinner the waiter brought over a box of chocolate and a card that said Happy Anniversary. We did not tell them it was a special occasion. A very special touch to a perfect dinner. Cant wait to try the Sunday Brunch!!"
