Location is really beautiful. If you go make sure reservation for window seat. Afternoon probably better than evening for view. Menu changes with seasons and is interesting. Drinks were very good. The biscuits you get with meal are horrible. Read this in a review and was true.
Service was wonderful!!! Everyone was really nice

The Restaurant is Beautiful, and the good was Delicious! I don’t recommend making your reservation on Open Table. I booked my reservation on Open Table a month prior, and was not given the table I requested for our Special Anniversary. I was told by a Very Unpleasant Hostess that your table is assigned when you book it through Open Table. Basically you get what you get. Luckily the other hostess was very friendly and found us another table.

went to the Black Bass for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant was crowded, but manageable, but there was a wedding reception on a floor below us with a live band. noise level was high. Food, service and ambiance were excellent. Noise level did deter from an otherwise great night

Located in the scenic town of Lumberville on the banks of the Delaware River, this lovely, old restaurant' menu is up to date with current trends as well as old favorites. The food is quite good and the view of the river is lovely. A good spot for meeting friends and family for a relaxing, quiet dining experience. After lunch we often walk across the river on the nearby foot bridge.

I've been there many times and will continue to go back, but the waitress who took care of us today was not very good. She seemed clueless and confused. We finally resorted to asking a person we assumed to be the manager to deal with the check and payment so we could leave. Unusual experience.

Food was good, ambience and view were beautiful. Only disappointment was that I had indicated on our reservation that we were celebrating our 12th anniversary. I had hoped they would offer a dessert or seat us by the window but they didn’t do anything special for us. Also, restaurant is pretty pricey. We were glad we tried it and would recommend it for a treat, but we don’t feel the need to go back.

This has become one of our favorite places to eat.
Please put the pork shank on menu. Or simply serve more often under specials. Outstanding presentation and amazing to eat. My husband said the best he ever had.
Also a fan of the pasta with fish sauce.
We will be back.
Thank you.

We were directed to our table upon arrival. Our waitress was efficient and we placed our order. She apologized that it took a while to get our food as the kitchen was very busy. My steak was ordered medium rare and received well done, the waitress quickly served a replacement done to my wishes. The view was spectacular of the Delaware River. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

My friend and I ordered cheeseburgers, which I had really enjoyed just two weeks prior. Today, both burgers were over cooked, and the brioche buns were strangely flattened, like they had been pressed. Our server never offered to refill our iced tea, and a large horsefly pestered us the entire time. But...the room and the view are beautiful, and the chairs are very comfortable. I love the Black Bass and I’m hoping today’s mediocre experience was just a fluke.

For those who don’t live nearby, brunch at the Black Bass Inn is a great way to enjoy not only very good food, but also a chance to spend time in this historic inn on the Delaware River. We have made The Black Bass one of our favorite destinations for many years, and we’ve never been disappointed!

I put in the notes that it was an anniversary celebration and requested a table by the window. We arrived exactly on time but the hostess did not even acknowledge the anniversary nor the request until I asked about it. Then, she was entirely dismissive of the request, and frankly dismissive of our party. Her only comment was “we don’t guarantee requests”. Well, that’s why it is called a “request” and not a guarantee. Nevertheless, a little courtesy for your guests should be in order - such as “I am sorry we cannot accommodate your request this evening but I hope you have a lovely anniversary”. If I wanted to be treated dismissively, I could go to a diner.

The waitress was very nice (although also did not acknowledge the anniversary) but she was spread over way too many tables. We waited 20 min before we were even asked for a drink order. As the place cleared out, we got more attention.

In sum, while the food was excellent, the service was far from acceptable.

Food was good. It appeared that the staff was spread thin due to a party on the lower level. Felt like I was dining at Outback with food wait staff rushing around and food being served by runners.

This was our first visit to the Black Bass for Sunday Brunch and it was wonderful! The location was beautiful with lovely river side seating. The brunch is prix fixe and it very reasonable for the quality and service - and the unending champagne!
We can now add the Sunday Champagne Brunch to our favorites.
