Always enjoy coming here — valet never sent us a text for information for pickup (no biggie) and we waiting 25minutes to be seated even though we had reservations.

Food and waitress Diane were excellent.

My husband and I dined at Black Bass for our wedding anniversary. We noted that occasion on our OpenTable reservation. The restaurant did not acknowledge our anniversary, but acknowledged birthdays around us. That was disappointing. I did reach out to the restaurant and they basically just said they'll make their hostess aware to better check reservations for special occasions.

The food was okay. The calamari came with some weird liquid dip that was not good. The steak also had a strange demi glaze... goopy and unappetizing. The meal would have been better if they stuck to the basics.. steak with just butter and calamari with marinara, for example. Even the bread that was served before the meal was unappealing. One basic white roll and two earthy Rosemary breads that were too aromatic to enjoy. Wish we had just been given basic rolls. The highlight of our meal was a crab dish and the drinks.

All-in-all, we weren't impressed and won't be back. Our total, before tip for our server and valet, was around $185. Not worth what we paid.

An amazingly charming place taking us back to being at an inn during the late 1700s. The ambience is spectacular, the food is tremendous and the bar and restaurant staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. My wife and I only live 20 minutes away, but we go for a getaway each January. Enjoy a cocktail or two after check-in. Then after relaxing in the room with a perfect view of the Delaware River we head down for dinner. After 7 years we’ve had a great meal every time. You used to be able to sit by the fireplace before retiring upstairs, but that is no longer the case. Go and enjoy the wonderful place!!!

Cozy charming place right on the Delaware and the Tow Path. Free parking just across the street. Service was excellent, but they are understaffed so you will have to be patient. We were there in between lunch and dinner so we tried 3 appetizers, of which 2 were amazing. The serving sizes are on the small side, and on the top end of the price scale, so plan on appetizers for two, and one drink each, to come out to $100 with tax and tip. Not cheap, but fair enough. Of our 3 appetizers I would recommend the Sea Scallops, and the Pear and Arugula salad (to which we added a crab cake). The poached pear on the salad was spectacular.

We went with my in-laws to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday and New Year’s Day. Our server was wonderful and super attentive! Our meals were to die for… best steak I’ve had in years and my husband and his father loved the lamb! It was a really nice time and we can’t wait to go again!

The only downside was the road construction which made it a little challenging to get there. I haven’t eaten there in years and it was delightful. The food was excellent, their menu is unusual and tempting. I had a lovely view from my table. I will certainly be returning, hopefully the construction will be completed soon.

Black Bass has become our "go to" venue for any special occasion. The drive to get there is scenic no matter what direction you're coming from. Once inside the historic Inn, the ambiance is delightful, the food is always delicious and well prepared, and the view of the river from the dining room at any time of year is always beautiful. I have been to the Black Bass for lunch, dinner as well as their wonderful Sunday brunch and have never been disappointed.

For the first time in 7 years we encountered a rude employee on the phone and as a result our reservation was not as we thought. I spoke to a young woman on the phone on Monday 12/13 to confirm our reservation for Friday12/17. We were celebrating a birthday. This employee did not care the we were celebrating anything. I was bothering her.
When we arrived Friday a man are the host desk was not clear about our reservation. He almost was about to say he did not see the reservation. I said we requested the stone room with a table for two near the window. He seated us in the stone room at a four person table. Then he said the black bass can not guarantee any table.
We had a lovely server and the food we as good as always.
I am going to explore other places to enjoy our special events
