                          While the waitress was excellent, the hostess was actually very rude. We had booked for outside due to the pandemic and she was quite unpleasant in telling us that our request on Open Table was worthless and that the only way to reserve outside was to call. While the restaurant has every right to set its own policies, our party did nothing to deserve the ongoing rudeness of the hostess. It put a damper on what was supposed to be a special occasion. Fortunately, the waitress and other staff were lovely and professional.

                          Very good food in such a scenic spot. Some items overpriced (the vanilla yogurt was a very small portion for the price) but all tasted wonderful. Valet parking with ability to click on a link to ask for your car before going outside is a very neat feature I haven't seen before

                          Service was impeccable. Prices on the high side but quality of food is good. Nice spot for either a romantic dinner or an adult family outing. Take advantage of the foot bridge to walk off dinner.

                          We go every year to the Black Bass for our Anniversary lunch and sit on the back deck along the River … This year I requested the deck through my open table reservation and they were not able to accommodate us which was disappointing—but the food and service are always impeccable

                          Outstanding!!! We had the chateaubriand for two with crab meat and everything about this place was amazing. Great food, great service and with it being our Anniversary they made it even more memorable with a nice note in our doggie bag saying happy anniversary. I highly recommend the black bass hotel!!! Thank you for such a great experience!

We were so glad to see Laura as our bartender. Our room was excellent as usual. The view is always incredible! We really love coming to the Black Bass!1

                          Fantastic experience. John at the bar (before hand) was awesome. Then, Liz was superb as our waitress. She made great suggestions and paced our meal beautifully. Love this place, but know you always need a reservation. Lots of other people appreciate the Black Bass, too.

                          We hadn't been to the Black Bass since the pandemic started and we were so looking forward to a wonderful dinner as has been our previous experiences What a disappointment! My wife got the hanger steak medium rare and it was over cooked, tough and gristly. Practically inedible. I had the Charleston crab which was supposed to be au gratin, but instead it was swimming in a loose butter sauce that was way too rich and buttery, overtaking the sweetness of the crab. My soup, a gumbo, had very little flavor and had less appeal than beef gravy. What happened?? Totally confused what happened to a great restaurant.

                          I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and he said it was fabulous. The food was fresh, the wine selection was nice, the desserts were refreshing. We will be back to try a meal on the deck when it’s warmer. The wait staff provided impeccable service. Thank you for the signature chocolate and birthday card!

                          The food is good but not great. The menu could use a refresh. Portions are very large and some items are overly rich. The sandwiches are too large to pick up to eat. The appetizers are not shareable items although the deserts are yummy. Wine pours are generous.

                          Food and service were excellent. Nice view of the river and the pedestrian bridge. We were not rushed. Waitress answered several questions patiently and honestly (indicating one dessert was not her favorite). Several people seemed to be celebrating special occasions. Very nice place to "splurge" a bit and do that.
