We dined outside on the deck. Even though it was cool, the space heaters and warmth of the staff made it wonderful.

The Black Bass was the perfect setting to celebrate our 26th oanniversary. The view of the river as well as the atmosphere in the restaurant was wonderful. Our server was attentive and the food was delicious. The dress was casual. Would definitely return again!

Lunch on Friday was great. Porcini chicken and Porchetta were both excellent. Brussels sprout appy was done perfect. Sat along the window and watched the Delaware roll by. Reasonable price even with 2 glasses of wine. Spread out diners among all rooms and the car. The patio was socially distanced as well. One of our favorite places.

Very nice scenic setting along the Delaware Canal and River with big windows to overlook the scenery. Had cassolet for a 2nd time; this time it was much better but was a bit light on the meats. The Black Bass chard was very good (as always) although a bit pricey as well at $38 (750 mL bottle). All-in-all it was a good meal and experience.

The only thing I wasn’t happy with was that I called and left a message to request a window seat and they said no when we got there. The window tables stayed unoccupied the whole time. They stayed empty for the entire time we sat at another table.

Service and food was amazing! Only thing they didn’t acknowledge was our anniversary tho, not once it was mentioned. Not that we expected a handout but most places will at least say happy anniversary. n they knew as we were staying at the hotel as well n the manager confirmed but at least they seated us by the window.

Upon arrival, the floor under our table was dirty and had food on it. They offered us tap water or sparkling water. We went with tap water because I'm not picky but it tasted like it was from the river outside. The service was decent and our waitress Sue was very friendly and polite though it did take a little while for her to come and check on us. The menu changed on Friday apparently and we attended on Sunday evening so everyone was still getting used to what they had available. The food was delicious!!! The filet is probably in our top 3 favorites now. After dinner, we had dessert and champagne brought to our room upstairs which was lovely and the pumpkin cheesecake was delicious.

The food was excellent and the special cheesecake divine and the Sparkly Berry drink was very good. The tables were spaced apart so you were not close to other diners. The staff were their usual helpful, pleasant selves. Lunch was very enjoyable Would without a doubt go back.

Filet was excellent.
“Signature Chesapeake Crab” was watery with texture of crab more mushy than expected.

Was looking forward to Sunday brunch and found out when we sat down that brunch wasn’t being served, only the lunch menu. Started with the daily soup special which was only warm upon arrival. Entree was fair. The gentleman who seated us and the server weren’t friendly. I’ve had wonderful meals here before but unfortunately this wasn’t one of them :-(

Only lunch menu offered , flies were all over us at the table and waiter outside of window during meal stacking chairs in front of where we sat inside. Food was just ok , for the price definitely not worth it. View out window was nice , if you were sitting in middle of dining room.

The staff was very helpful in making us comfortable with our seating's , meaning we were to sit outdoors but it was a cool evening so they let us move indoors ever though our reservations weren't. Our waitress was the best, our food satisfying.

As always the food was delicious for most of our party. My friend was underwhelmed by the crabcake but she said the asparagus was good. My salmon was delicious as was salad, my husband's soup and jambalaya. We chose to get dessert at the general store but was told we could not get it unless we had the evening meal. Not sure why that happened. This was our third time visiting and even with these little inconveniences, we surely will be back.
