The steaks are terrific as well as the appetizers. Mahi was like butter!
This was our first time at Bascom’s. Although we had reservations, we did have to wait a bit. - The manager made up for it by having appetizers brought out as soon as we were seated and best of all, they were on the house! If you haven’t tried Bascom’s, you are missing out. Everything was delicious, especially the creme brûlée!
The food, especially the steaks were a new level of excellence.
Love Marco! He makes our dinner a special occasion with his recommendation for wine to suggestions for dessert.
First: service with Brad was great! We had the weekend specials of prime rib and filet. Excellent price value. While our prime rib was very tasty, there was a 2 inch hunk of fat in the middle. Of course it is very difficult to get prime rib as rare as we like it, but the filet was cooked to perfection and amazingly tender. Would highly recommend! Just be prepared for the noise level. We couldn’t hear at our 4 person table.
We found this gem by asking Open Table what was near-by. We were delighted. We both had a strip steak that was done as perfectly as I have ever seen. They were fabulous. We shared a couple of sides and couldn’t finish all of it. Then we each had flourless chocolate cake. It was wonderfully decadent. Our waiter had a good, impish sense of humor. I would ding it for the noise, however: it was uncomfortably loud for half our meal. If I could give a 4.5 I would, but since I can’t t he 5 better reflects my overall feelings.
Flash. Fried. Lobster Tail.
Our meal was Excellent. Love it love it love it!!!!!!!!!!
We had an amazing time celebrating my husband's 50th birthday. The food was amazing the drinks wonderful. The staff took very good care of us.
Visiting the St. Pete area for business. Brought my wife with me and we wanted to have a nice dinner. Yelp says this place had nice steaks so we went for it. The steak was amazing. The service was exemplary. Steven was our server and did an excellent job. I would absolutely recommend this steak house to anyone and everyone. I did think it was a bit loud depending on which area of the restaurant one is seated. The rooms can contain and raise the level of the conversations (auditorily). But overall, an amazing place.
Never disappoints. Fried lobster appetizer is fantastic.
Best prime rib I have ever had.
As always the food and service was great. They know how to do steaks......hard to find now a days.
Our 2nd time and it was just as fantastic! We took another couple and they were as impressed.
Delightful except for the loud table behind us.
Very nice overall. Seated on time, although need to reserve a booth since they are limited. Very extensive menu. Items were good. My wife’s prime rib was very good. My filet was good, just not the best I’ve ever had. Items were reasonably priced for this type of venue. With drinks, appetizers, main course and desserts, we were under $75 per person. The wait staff was suitably attentive as well. This was our first time and we will definitely return.
Great food and service. The dining room was too noisy to carry on a conversation because of some loud tables nearby.
We made our reservations and when we arrived we were seated immediately. We were greeted by our waiter, Marco, very quickly. He introduced himself and began to attend to our wishes. He was absolutely delightful, wonderful sense of humor, so pleasant and very efficient. Our meal was delicious and just as we ordered it. We have been to Bascom's many times and always had a good meal and a nice experience. Saturday's experience was outstanding!!!! Great choice to celebrate my husband's birthday!
We all had a delightful time. The restaurant did not disappoint in any way. We will definitely visit again.
We visited for our 5th wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect. We were promptly seated when we arrived at the table we requested. George, our server, was absolutely wonderful! We went with his suggestions on the entire meal including the wine selection! He was spot on. My wife and I enjoyed a very romantic dinner. The food was excellent and cooked to perfection. Wine was superb and the key lime pie was amazing! We had just gotten back from the keys and had not had key lime pie as good as we had Bascom's. Highly recommend you spending your next special occasion there!
Bone in fillet was out of this world!!
I have always been over the top pleased however my reservation was at 6:45 and I happened to arrive early and let the desk know I was there realizing I wouldn’t be seated until closer to 6:45. Several other people were seated ahead of me and now it was 7. I asked about our table and it seemed to pop out of nowhere. It was another 15 minutes before we had our service started. Waitress said she’d get to us. We waited. This is not good service and owner should be made aware of us feeling like an oversight
Just GREAT FOOD and attentive staff!! Bar staff and wait staff were very attentive
First time at Bascom's won't be the last. Our waiter Jonathon was wonderful, very helpful, and friendly as well. The food was very good, and they make a wonderful martini. If you looking to go for a special evening, this is the place for you.
Always an Amazon meal with an old world steakhouse feeling
This was our first time here even though we’ve driven past it about a hundred times. We will be regular customers from now on. Besides very good service and very good food it was extremely nice to sit in a restaurant and have a normal conversation without having to yell to be heard. For its size and the amount of people dining the noise level was very nice.
Enjoyed great service. Had the fillet, the steak fries and an appetizer that were all wonderful. Mixed drinks were well prepared. Great dinner.
The food and service was great as usual. We are never disappointed when we dine here.
Fillet was great!
Our waitress was terrific, bringing out displays of the various steaks, and later the desserts. Our steaks were all cooked to perfection and the sides were notable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Even the mixed drinks were wonderful (so many restaurants have watered down versions). I would definitely go again.
I rated the service as fair because I waited over 20 minutes from the time I sat down at the table for a waiter to come to my table. Once the waiter appeared I told him I had been waiting 20 minutes and he apologized and the service was good after that. I had the crabcakes which were very good.
While planning a trip through Florida I wanted a great meal. I found Bascom’s Chop House in the area of my hotel and made a reservation. Best decision I made during my entire trip! Excellent food from start to finish and great wine list. My steak was phenomenal and I Would highly recommend this place!
We were greeted and promptly seated upon our arrival. The restaurant was very crowded and had a lively vibe. Our server was very attentive throughout the meal and answered all of our questions. The food was very good and plentiful. We are looking forward to going back.
Mouthwatering Kobe wagyu steak. Best steak we’ve ever had! Great server (Kim). Even my picky eater (13 yr old son) liked the pork chop he ordered.
We've been going to Bascom's for many years. The service is always top notch. The last two times we were there I ordered fish dishes. The black grouper was not pleasant. I did call the manger and he comped a gift certificate. The 2nd was sea bass w risotto. I'm not going to complain to management but, the food was not pleasant. No taste to sea bass & the risotto was soupy. I guess I won't be going back. Sad.
I drive by this place almost everyday heading to work and had a curiosity because I always saw the parking lot full. A co-worker recommended I check it out...specifically the Fried Lobster...attempted to make it on Easter Sunday, but due to poor planning on my part, got caught in the worst traffic leaving Clearwater Beach, so I made reservations for the following day. The waitress was attentive, and explained the menu options for me and my date, the manager, made his rounds and was genuine in asking how the evening was going. It was above and beyond my expectations and is now my go to spot when entertaining friends and family from out of town. Well worth it...
We had a wonderful family Birthday dinner. There were 4 of us and the food and wine was outstanding. We had desert come with a Birthday candle. It was a fabulous evening.
Looked good on your site and selected it for only dinner in town . Dinner was good but rushed by the waiter who said the kitchen was closing although people coming in later were served. Unfortunately both of us had upset stomachs overnight and since we both ate the same thing there was only one conclusion. Sadly once that occurs you don’t go back again .
We have eaten there many times. It just wasnt quite up to the quality and taste that we had experienced in the past.
Excellent. Nuff said. Great food, presentation. Great service. Wonderful menu, cooked to perfection.
We love dining here! Great food and great service. We were on the second floor so it was a little more quiet but even so, still an amazing dinner!
