    I have dined here many times, always a delight. The lemon drop cocktail was perfect. My friend and I shared the citrus salad. It was delicious with a light dressing. One of our shared entrees was the salmon. It was cooked to perfection and the sauce was a wonderful compliment. Our other entree was the hangar steak. Unfortunately the meat was very tough, but our server quickly substituted the filet mignon which was very tender and tasty. This is a quality restaurant and I will definitely return on our next Pa. stay. We also stayed in the hotel and enjoyed our room with the view of the Delaware River.

    Each dish served was outstanding including our cocktails. Although we needed to return two of our meals because our entree was overdone our server could not have been more apologetic and when it was delivered to our table in a timely manner it could not have been more delicious. We recommend and will return to this restaurant.

    My daughter took her father here to honor him for Fathers Day dinner. She requested a table by the window. They were seated by the window and enjoyed top notch service, cocktails and perfectly prepared delicious meals. This place is a delightful experience every time we go!

    We drove down to celebrate a birthday, a long drive on not very good roads. The restaurant overlooks the Delaware River, and we were lucky to have a window seat. The waitress was great, but the entrees took forever to get to our table, and the steaks were a bit overdone by the time they got to us. Still, they were not bad. We passed on dessert as there was a birthday cake waiting at home. On the way out we stopped in the bar and got the tour from the bartender, Sheri. The place is a museum of sorts full of English royalty knick-knacks, a bar imported from Maxim's in Paris, and revolutionary war relics like the surgery table converted in a dinner table. Sheri's enthusiastic presentation was great fun.

    Being next to the river is very nice and contributes to making the dining experience enjoyable. The food is good. The service was good. I had the hanger steak, the sauce was very good, the fingerling potatoes and asparagus was very good. My wife had the salami special ginger topped and crusted). It was cooked really well, glistening instead. If anything for me it could have used 30 seconds more if I had ordered it but my wife really enjoyed it. It came with a arugula salad with some fresh fruit that was very good.

    It was a lovely day on the deck! A gentle breeze from the river and the awning over the deck made for a lovely afternoon, even though it was in the 90’s. The service was wonderful and the food overall was good. My chicken was a bit overcooked. My only complaint. My friends salad and her crab cake was delish!!! Overall very happy♥️♥️

    Not the best experience. The food was subpar, NE clam chowder had burnt rue and was not seasoned. The $18 charged for 3 small wonton wrapped shrimp was a joke and the accompanying sauce was truly disgusting. My wife's steak was like shoe leather and had to be sent back. Overall I'm being generous based on past experiences.

    The historic hotel sits on beautiful stretch of the Delaware River. I enjoyed the outdoor dining with beautiful scenic views of wildlife and a sunset. The inside is complemented by beautiful wood and stonework taking back many years ago. The staff was very kind and professional the food was amazing.

    The location cannot be beat. Beautiful river view from the outdoor dining deck. Our server John was pleasant, but did not smile. My only real objection is the menu. The butter lettuce salad was teeny tiny, and there is no giant dinner salad option; there are no side dishes to order a la cart (i e no green vegetables); so many recipes had added sugar, which I am striving to avoid. The staff I encountered is fairly friendly but not warm, with the exception of the bartender lady who was particularly nice and smiled.

It was so nice to return after the shutdown to get his very quaint spot. Don’t forget they have French press coffee too! Our waitress was very good and gave us plenty of time to enjoy our lunch!

    We went to The Black Bass Hotel for our anniversary and had high expectations based on previous visits. The food was delicious and the views beautiful as always but the experience was extremely diminished by the rude hostess, the terrible drinks, and service. Spending much of my life as a server, I’m very reluctant to leave poor reviews as I understand the service industry has been hit hard these past few years. I’m confident their staff must’ve been new because that’s the only explanation for the rude hostess and bad drinks. I was really surprised when I sent back my first drink that we were still charged. I drank my second drink even though I hated it because I didn’t want to make a big deal but wish I sent it back too. After speaking up our server kindly removed the first drink from our bill but informed me that normally they don’t….this policy is not the customer experience I’m looking for. With as many great restaurants and views on the river I just wish the customer service was better…its such a beautiful place with a great menu that I’m so sad to have had such a disappointing experience for such a special occasion.

    The meal didn’t have the right veggies with my fish. There should be a choice. I had a bitter hummus that accompanied my tile fish. It was terrible. Also, the artichoke spinach dip was too watery.

    What is better than being in a 250 year old building that has been beautifully maintained, sitting next to a window overlooking the delaware, and eating the most delicious food. I had the shrimp and grits - which sounds very plain and southern, but this was a delicate, delightful, surprise for my palate.

    We had a great table by the window so we could look at the river and the people walking by. The atmosphere was very relaxed. My wife and I started with the house salad and it was fantastic. I had the house chardonnay and it was excellent. The entrees were well-prepared and hot. There was no hurry so I had a second glass of wine. Everything was good.
