Food is consistently good, service is always great. Ambience better than most. Menu is small, but portions are good and food is very good. We always go back for more.

This is our second timem at Bass Lake and will certainly not be our last. The atmosphere is perfect for a quiet night out and the food is outstanding. We went on the later side of a Friday night and were able to sit and truly enjoy without feeling rushed out.

Thought the samon on plank
Thought the samon on plank shouldn't have skin in middle. I have ordered for years both for lunch and with clients or evening dinner. Can't remember skin before. Also billed for extra beer. But when I called the young ladie that answered was very courtious

A great little restaurant
A great little restaurant with a casual and laid back atmosphere. We ate in the bar area which seemed to be a favorite of the local patrons. All of us enjoyed our dinner except for my husband who ordered the turkey dinner. He was undecided between that and the salmon. We got the impression from the waitress that the turkey entree was one of their specialty dinners, so maybe it was just a bad night.

Been a long time since I was there.
Overall experience was great! Staff was very friendly. Had more issues with other customers. Table were a little close and people were plan rude when it came to getting by. Actually had one woman demanded to get through, and she could have walked around the table. An "excuse me" and "Please and Thank you" go a long way. Other than that, we really enjoyed our experience.

This a quaint place next to a golf course so the scenery help improve the experience. The brunch menu was fantastic, Had the Eggs Benedict over crab cakes. It was spectacular. Service was freindly and fast. We are from out our town (California) so it was great to find a new place we can frequent when we visit family in the area.

Mother's Day Brunch
This would be the third year in a row we've had Mother's Day Brunch at Bass Lake Taverne. My only suggestion would be to change up the menu a bit! Same menu for three years in a row? (But keep the crab/lobster soup.....yum.)
Other than that, it was a fabulous experience.

My son, niece and I enjoyed Sunday brunch at Bass Lake Taverne in Chardon, Ohio. The meal started with a mimosa and wach enjoyed a different menu option: stuffed french toast, quiche of the day and eggs benedict. Great company and food = memorable day.

We have gone to Bass Lake Taverne for a number of years to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Invariably the food is wonderfully prepared, presented and service is terrific. Usually we sit outside but it was so hot we stayed in but our first table was a booth back-to-back with a foursome of older adults that were way too loud. We asked for a move and we went into the dining area where the bar is and it was perfect. No hassles, no noses out of joint. We do plan on going more often this year and expect to meet friends there who live in a different part of the area. After dinner we usually drive around the area, which is farm and horse country, plus some Amish folks. Always a pleasurable experience.

They twick the menu! Little plates are tasty & different.. Some old standards with new menu items! Good job! Had a guitar player who just added to the ambiance! The strawberry shortcake is always a favorite. The staff is friendly & helpful! The outside patio is our favorite.. Beautiful flowers! Love the changes on the inside. Cozy yet more modern...a great place in the town of Chardon. The fish specials are exciting..,

BBQ and Blues night
Had a very pleasant evening at Bass Lake. We were with friends at the BBQ and Blues night. Food was very good .Chicken , ribs ,1/2
ear of corn, cole slaw, beans with sausage and key lime pie. Price is so reasonable for the amount of food you are getting. They also had a wonderful band. Our server was wonderful and very attentive. The outdoor patio is very nice. A wonderful relaxing evening at

Superb "little plates" with excellent service and a very comfortable atmosphere.

Accommodating & Great Night!
We had a group of 5 ladies and 1 child. Everyone had to arrive at different times and chose different levels of the menu from a full entree, to a small plate, to apps for dinner to nothing. The server was super sweet and nice and patient with us. She was pleasant and polite despite what was a slightly chaotic group :) She was accommodating with our one year old as well. One guest had a birthday and she brought us a nice birthday dessert. She also willingly and kindly broke up our checks between 4 people which I know can be a hassle. As Chardon residents, Bass Lake is a tried and true restaurant with a great patio, consistent food and always nice servers and hostesses. Highly recommend.

Never been disappointed
I have dined several times at Bass Lake Tavern and it has always been excellent.
The price range is medium and it is a great value for the quality of the food.
Looking forward to my next visit already.

The outdoor courtyard was adorable. It was a gorgeous August Sunday. The brunch menu was perfect and the food was excellent. Perfect bloody mary too.

This was a business/pleasure lunch and lasted almost 3 hours. No one rushed us out - in fact Megan, our sever, told us not to worry about finishing our business. Greatly appreciated!

Bass Lake Weds
We had an excellent dining experience. Ate on the patio, in perfect weather. Did not do their "Date Night" special, though we may return for it. Drinks, an appetizer and two small plates were a great meal. No rush, no pressures - we really enjoyed ourselves. I don't think we've ever had a bad meal there!

The great outdoors!
The patio is warm & inviting! Great service with a smile! We have been going there for years. They have a open area in the patio & also a covered tent.. Yes, they do have heaters! They are also in the process of getting new heaters. Always accommodating ! Music on Friday & Saturday in the summer!

Nice for a special occasion
My husband and I had dinner at Bass Lake Taverne for our anniversary. We ate outside on the patio on a beautiful evening. Service was good as they did not try to rush you through your meal however my husband did have to ask for a water refill. Our food was also very good. I ordered the horseradish crusted salmon which was excellent. My husband ordered the fried perch which he said was good.

Nice ambiance, great appetizers!
I'd go back just for the shrimp taco appetizer! They were so fresh and delicious! Can't wait to go back and try some of their other appetizers. Love the little plates section of the menu for lighter eaters. Great service and nice atmosphere.

Awesome food, great service and friendly environment -- what a perfect combination! We will definitely go back again!

Happy Hour was wonderful.
Happy Hour was wonderful. Bartender went out of her way to make us special drinks that we requested. 1/2 price apps were amazingly delicious. Dining room was rustic- wood tables, woodburning fireplace - perfect for location. Hannah our waitress was great, not intrusive, but very attentive. Definitely will return. Only downside is the distance from Cleveland Heights.

There were three in our party. One had soup, salad and small plate (filet) and they loved every bite, it was cooked properly. Another person had soup and salad and they too were very happy. I had the Airline Chicken($26) and it was decadent, it was served with sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts with Pancetta with I think it was a lemon Blanc sauce. The flavors were great together. I prefer a little less butter on my food. Others would probably think it was fine. Normally I don't order this rich of a meal, but I was so glad I did. The group had 1 drink, 1hot chocolate and 2 glasses of wine and the bill was $93. A little pricey, and that's why we only make it here a few times a year. We know the food's always good. Our Server was very good.

Great food, usually great service-
but on this most recent visit the server, although friendly and pleasant, rushed us a bit - wanted our order immediately, brought the entrees before we were done with the salads - and then seemed to forget about us for the rest of the evening and left us waiting for the check much longer than necessary.
