Our waitress, Kate added to the excellence of the meal. She was patient with our many questions and guided us to the best choices. I had black bean soup and citrus salad, great together. The charming biscuits add a nice note.

Food was good. It appeared that the staff was spread thin due to a party on the lower level. Felt like I was dining at Outback with food wait staff rushing around and food being served by runners.

This was our first visit to the Black Bass for Sunday Brunch and it was wonderful! The location was beautiful with lovely river side seating. The brunch is prix fixe and it very reasonable for the quality and service - and the unending champagne!
We can now add the Sunday Champagne Brunch to our favorites.

I really didn't know what to expect, but I loved everything about this restaurant.
Our table looked out on to the water.
We all felt very lucky to have such a sweet and competent waitress. Our prix fix brunch menu had so many delicious choices.
I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

At the Black Bass to celebrate a birthday. Service was excellent, table behind us was VERY LOUD - not the restaurants' fault. Food was good with a few caveats - Firecracker shrimp, shrimp wrapped in wontons - still had the tails on them. Better choice would have been to remove the tails. Filet Mignon had a berry sauce with it that was tasty but had berry seeds in it - better choice would have been to remove the seeds. For high end food and prices these two things seemed a bit off.

Food very tasty! Wonderful evening on the Delaware. Will definitely be returning.

We’ve tried this place four times for dinner and once for Sunday brunch as we were given $600 in gift cards. Don’t waste your time. The food is awful. They try too hard to have unique creations and they fall flat. The ambiance is nice as it’s on the water but that’s as good as it gets.

The Inn was built in the mid 1700's and has a lot of history to take in and great old architecture. The view of the river adds a nice romantic touch. Great place for a special lunch or dinner. We had brunch here, which was a 3 course price fix with all you can drink Champagne. Many choices to so most will be happy with that. Food was very good and the service top notch from out server Jill. We will be back.

Our cocktails and wine were outstanding--although a pretty thin bourbon list. The food was good--but not amazing and not worth the price attached to them. I guess you are paying for the view. Sitting on the deck at sunset was really lovely. And, the wait staff was outstanding and attentive. I would return because of the view and good cocktails but will stick to just having an appetizer next time.

The bar is really beautiful, and the view of the river is wonderful. Our server was very good. She was attentive without being intrusive. Our salads were excellent. My seafood dish was fantastic. It came out piping hot and was delicious. My husband had soft shelled crabs which was a special on the menu. They were just okay. They were only slightly warm which was disappointing.

The service and room were amazing. The food not so much. I ordered the bronzino . It was described as crispy, but I no idea it was a whole fish deep fried. Bronzino is a delicate fish, so frying it made it dry and lost its flavor. Very disappointing. My guest had a veal dish that sounded better on paper but was kind of gross. It was a hunk of veal with prosciutto wrapped around it then mozzarella on top. Served in a huge bed of small pasta with vegetables, very greasy. It was strange. We loved our server, she was great! And I had said it was our anniversary in the reservation and they gave us a small box of chocolates and a nice card after dinner! I thought that was a special touch.

This is one of our favorite places- however sometimes the menu is really limited if you don’t eat a certain thing like shellfish. Literally every fish fish included shellfish and chef would not accept any changes to the dish. We literally ordered 4 of the same thing because of this. Restaurant needs to be just a little more accommodating to dietary restrictions.
