We love your food and view out on the deck but can you please please have a better beer menu on draft? You always have the same few beers. Would be great if you added to this and switched it up!

It was the loveliest of restaurants! The service was excellent, even the young lady that brought the water and bread was so charming and courteous. The food was good, but it was the view, the ambience that mad it all worthwhile. The pedestrian bridge and the river mad it a most delightful afternoon for our lunch.

We had an out of town guest visiting and decided to go to the best restaurant in the area. The Black Bass, once again, proved to be the place to go. Every aspect of dinner was outstanding. Our guest was impressed. A special evening with great food, and, service, in a beautiful setting Thanks Black Bass.

The food, as always, was delightful. Our server was great. A window table would have been nice, I should have requested it when I made the reservation.

Hubby has the steak and I had the salmon, and a canilla dessert. We got to sit by the window with a nice view. It was very peaceful, service was outstanding, food was incredible. Everything was perfection. We also stayed at the hotel above. Definitely coming back for another stay and eat.

Food and wine was excellent, but felt the whole experience was being rushed to get us out the door, more interested in finishing than welcoming. We had an 8.30 reservation we did not wish to be that late when we booked a week before, but were told all available. When arrived 8.20, numbers of tables available and no other new people arriving. No host at reception so waited 5 mins just to be greeted. Weather was good.

lovely lunch today at Black Bass. Ordered bottle of Black Bass house cabernet that was an excellent choice! We both had jumbo crab cake and shared the chocolate mousse cake. Everything was delicious and our waitress was attentive and pleasant. Highly recommend for relaxing lunch with beautiful Delaware RIver views.

we really enjoyed our dinner at the Black Bass - the view of the river from our table was incredible - the service was great and the food was delicious - the shrimp was especially noteworthy - literally the most tasty shrimp i have ever had. The bar downstairs is also a very nice spot for a post dinner drink.

We had a lovely table by the window to celebrate a birthday. Our server Joedy was fantastic- anticipating our needs and offering advice when asked. The Black Bass is one of our all time favorite places. The food and service are always wonderful and the atmosphere can’t be beat.

European elegance on the Delaware River...gorgeous view, excellent menu, good wine list and champagne...delightful wait staff! This is our place to celebrate and to experience the wonderful history of this original tavern and inn. We love the Main Bar with the zinc bartop and the historic china tucked on shelves.
