It was well worth the trip up that winding road! The food was phenomenal and the service spot on! Our server John was never more than a minute away from anything we needed and he was working the whole restaurant with at least 9 full tables.

Thank you for serving our community with excellence.

The Black Bass never disappoints! We not only ate at the Black Bass but we stayed the night as well and if you’re looking for a romantic getaway this is your place. The food is delicious and they have a great wine list as well. Would recommend this place over and over again

My wife and I celebrated our 30th Anniversary with our first (and only) trip to the Black Bass. I was unfortunately disappointed, but I didn't let it ruin our evening, but I do feel like I should give fair warning to others. First of all, don't go for the view if you get there after the sun is down....you can't see anything. In regard to the food, I found the dishes at this restaurant to be tired and out of date. We started with the cheese plate...good cheese but that was it. You'll see my theme is that the dishes are lacking for an establishment of this category....the tired grape bunch that was just thrown on the cheese plate was my first indication of this. We also had the Butternut squash soup that lacked flavor. The Signature Dish - Charleston Meeting Street Crab was like something served at Red Lobster, and again, served with no aesthetics whatsoever....and the bouillabaisse for the Lobster dish was more like a cheese and saffron sauce. The service was OK...our waiter was nothing special. We enjoyed the fact that the Bass't Decadent Signature Mousse Cake wasn't just concocted with overly sweet icing, but it rather had a more buttery flavor which we enjoyed, but that was it in the flavor department for that. We enjoyed the bottle of Black Bass labeled Cabernet that we ordered, and in the end, I'm just thankful that I was got to be out with the love of my life. I would have absolutely loved the evening if I could have had them send over my meal from the Lumberville General Store, the Black Bass can learn a lot from the chefs from that kitchen.
