We went to the Black Bass for lunch on Saturday the 17th for the first time. The old hotel sits right on the Delaware with beautiful views through the dining room windows. Isn't it wonderful when a restaurant exceeds all your expectations? My wife had two appetizers, both seafood, including the lobster martini and they were fresh and delicious. I had beef empanadas which were good, and the cod which was excellent-and certainly not the sometimes skimpy lunch portions at establishments like this. The room had great acoustics as we appreciate being able to have a conversation out using normal tones. The service was attentive, engaging and simply first-rate. We are already planning a return when the leaves turn.

We had lunch on a Friday and the bill for 3 people came to $130 with 2 glasses of wine, appetizers, entrees and no dessert. The food was not worth it. The biscuits had a bitter aftertaste, my husband’s tomato & olive tart had a chewy uncooked crust and my crab cake was mediocre. My mom didn’t enjoy her pulled pork and said it wasn’t marinated. Her accompanying tortilla chips were not homemade. Wouldn’t recommend it.

Great atmosphere in this historic restaurant. We dined overlooking the Delaware River. Waitress was great. Food is expensive and not worth the price. A seafood appetizer was tasteless. Ordered a filet migon medium and it came well done. Vegetables were barely cooked. Expected more for the price.

Loved the summer sangria; very light and refreshing. The crispy shrimp appetizer was outstanding. Charleston crab au gratin was delicious, reminiscent of lobster newburg but the veggies were undercooked (carrots were really firm) and the rice didn't have any noticeable flavor other than rice. The signature vanilla cake was yummy, more than adequate for two of us to share. My suggestion is work on the side dishes to make them as outstanding as the rest of the meal.

This was our anniversary dinner. From the moment we walked in, service was great.. but the meal was amazing. The octopus appetizer was cooked to perfection.. our meals were equally wonderful. The French press coffee was a pleasant surprise. Our table was at the window facing the river. Ambiance in the dining room only adds to the experience. A great anniversary dinner.

Requested a table next to the window with my reservation of a week ago. Upon arriving I was informed that a window table was not available for my requested special occasion. Although window tables were available upon my arrival apparently other reservations trumped my request. Seated elsewhere I enjoyed a great dinner with fabulous service. Small things matter especially when a special occasion is involved.

I took my wife there for her birthday. We have been there a hand full of times, each time saying we are going to get what we had last time because it was so good. However, once we get there things change... something always sways us to try something else;and without fail THAT is our new go to meal for the next time we come back because it’s that good every time. The reason I didn’t give it 5 stars for value, and as I write this I struggle with it. My wife asked for the shelled full lobster with three scallops and three shrimp on a bed of orzo with spinach and some sort of sauce. THE MEAL WAS DELICIOUS!! Now I ask what would you pay? If you said 57 dollars or more than you’d give this five stars for value. At the table I was a little taken back but now I feel it was worth it. So you decide.
My meal was their signature crab dinner which was awesome.

Absolutely. It is a beautiful location along the Delaware River. The old hotel has been refurbished and the rooms are beautiful.
However, because of the location (Rte32) I would recommend staying overnight or perhaps having a driver if you consume alcohol. The road is very beautiful to drive and ride but very narrow and lots of curves.

Scenic drive to get there with winding country roads. I highly recommend the Shrimp Cocktail, the sauce is homemade and best I've ever had. The porch dining room overlooks the Delaware River with bucolic views. It is a wonderful destination restaurant and worth the drive.
