We have been patrons for many many years and have NEVER had a negative experience. The food, service and total experience has ALWAYS been first rate.
Stayed at Black Bass Inn for our anniversary. Enjoyed ourselves wonderfully. Quaint, cozy, friendly, lovely fireplace, authentic, a must stay.
came there to celebrate husbands 70th birthday.Ambiece great-service great-But my filet was overcooked. asked for med and no pink at all. the one piece was not trimmed correctly . Taste was good.One piece great-one not. eggs were on same plate so had sauce under it .Dessert was delicious.Being retired and on limited income-to spend 80.00 for breakfast was ok if all would have been good. I still would recommend to people. One bad item happens somtimes.
Not as good as usual. The lobster and seafood risotto was disappointing. We were presented with the seafood on one side of the plate and a tasteless glob of separately cooked risotto on the side....there was no infusion of flavor in the risotto and no lobster reduction was used in its preparation.
Rather annoyed because we telephoned two weeks in advance for a window table and told the restaurant was full booked. Went on OpenTable the day before and almost every time slot was open. Despite it being my birthday and that we are regulars, they would not give us a window table.
We went to Black Bass to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. He ordered the most expensive thing on the menu, the lobster risotto, and a "basshattan" drink. I ordered the fillet. Our waitress was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. My boyfriend felt the risotto on its own was not all that flavorful, but when he mixed everything on his plate together it was good. He concluded that it was good, but not as good as he had hoped for the price. We have had similar dishes at other restaurants that were not nearly as expensive and may have had more flavor. My fillet and the side of mashed potatoes were tasty. The nicest thing about this place is the atmosphere. The historic building on the river with large windows looking out is really beautiful.
First time we have been there and are already planning when we can return!
The appetizers were fantastic, but the size of the entrees were a joke. I ordered the crab cake and it was for a child. The rice portion was larger than the crab cake. My husband order the crab imperial and the portion had too much sauce and not enough crab. For what you were charging, you should know that the protein portion was inadequate. My husband and I eat out a lot and we have not experienced that such small portions and imbalance. Also, my husband ordered a second glass of iced tea and we were charged for the second glass. Again, for what you are charging, it is ungracious for you to hit him up twice for something that was probably in a pitcher.
Our experience was a mixed bag. Food was good, but the inconsistency was disturbing. I am not rushing back!
Beautiful view, welcoming staff, food is consistently good. This is a great place for lunch or dinner with a nice wine list......
A wonderful setting for a romantic Valentine’s evening. Candlelit setting, helpful staff and delicious food.
Was not given the table we were promised. When we questioned why we were bluntly lied to. 20 yrs we have patronized them and sadly tonight was our last.
