This is a lovely place for a special meal. The view of the river is charming. The authentic historic atmosphere is Bucks County at its best. Have a drink in the bar before your meal in the main dining room. They do not offer any bar nuts or pretzels - but you can order an appetizer if you'd like.

We have eaten here numerous times and have never been disappointed. We also at the hotel and that is also a wonderful experience. The view from the restaurant of the Delaware River is superb and one can also dine al fresco with the same view.

We have dined at the Black Bass on numerous occasions, and will certainly return. The food is always exceptionally well prepared, and last evening was no exception. If they offer, take them up on the whole branzino!

We have been going to the Black Bass for many years, and this was our most disappointing visit to date. The menu is very sparse. No side dish vegetables and very few entree choices. I realize we are in difficult times, but we paid top dollar for a dinner where we really didn't have many choices. I would not recommend the Black Bass to a friend right now.

This is a small restaurant directly on the Delaware River. The views are fantastic, It is over 200 years old and was completely remodeled. You can not find a nicer spot for a place to eat. the food was great. It was very quiet. Service was very good. You can also eat outside on the deck which is even closer to the river, maybe 100 feet?
We have been there many times. It is very close to New Hope PA which is a very well known destination for both Philadelphians and New Yorkers. This is one of the finest restaurants in the area, We have been to all of them. This one has the best view and there is no one even close.

The service from the waitress was slow, as it appeared there was only one in the dining room. The food came out quickly but the appetizer did not come out as described on the menu and contained a random crab leg that was not part of the appetizer....the dinner also came out in a timely manner but they cut the filet mignon in half and cooked it, making it overcooked and not tender like it should have been. The drinks were not good, as they used syrup instead of fresh ingredients and were overpriced in my opinion. $16 for a glass of pinot noir.

Black bass is just a uniquely picturesque place to enjoy the experience of being waited on to eat and drink. The food is good and you can just feel the history of many generations gone by, and so I find it very appealing on many levels. The little village of Lumberville is like something out of a storybook. You should go.

Running an event and restaurant at same time. Kitchen incredibly slow. Had to wait over an hour after ordering meal before served at 9 pm. Waitress great, food excellent. Will definitely go back but this was disappointing.

Our close friends spent the weekend with us and we wanted to be sure they had the Black Bass experience. It was a great meal with our best people and waitress was funny and attentive. The food was the best. And nobody does my favorite drink better...the Basshattan.

The food we had was excellent, the view of the Delaware perfect, and the dining room was quiet. The only issue we had was that the meal was rushed and for no clear reason - the dining room was nearly empty, there were no patrons waiting for a table. We had three courses plus coffee and were out the door in just over an hour, about 75 minutes total. If I had wanted fast food I'd have gone to Burger King.

We have dined at the Black Bass Hotel several times over many years. Our recent dining experience - An Anniversary Luncheon - was another exceptional experience. Excellent food and service, and a beautiful setting along the Delaware River. As we had done before, we concluded the meal by walking over the Delaware River on the walking bridge adjacent to the Black Bass Hotel. A beautiful day!!

We had our first date here in 1988 and the 24th was our wedding anniversary so we thought it would be appropriate to return to the scene of the crime. We’re both serving life sentences! The atmosphere was charming, the service was outstanding and the food was terrific. Couldn’t ask for a better memory of our 33 years together.
