The food was wonderful, the service exceptional and friendly. Great view of Delaware River and some quirky paintings on the vestibule walls.

Beautiful dining room overlooking the Delaware river. Booked lunch early as the dining room can get noisy as it fills up. Waitstaff treats my elderly parents very well. Salads are great. Tried crab and lobster appetizer with the salad and will do that again. Wine list is small but diverse. Love the rose brut from Italy. Always a good time.

We dined at the Black Bass to celebrate our daughter’s graduation from high school. We sat outside and it was a beautiful night to be on the Delaware. All of our meals were delicious . It was a busy night and things were a little slow and there were two mistakes (the wrong drink was brought- not a big deal- and our dessert if creme brûlée arrived without the burnt sugar- kind of important). The sever was kind and apologetic so we really didn’t mind. We’d definitely go back!

Wonderful graduation dinner on a beautiful night on the river at The Black Bass Hotel! Would definitely eat the Scallops over risotto and Hanger Steak and signature Crab au gratin dinners again. There was a large rehearsal dinner or something so service was a bit slower than usual but we thoroughly enjoyed our evening and the desserts are worth saving room for especially homemade ice cream.

Took a casual drive through the countryside and went to the Black Bass Inn for a late lunch. It was a very nice day, and we sat on the deck. The drinks and food were great, as was the service. The facility, despite it's age, is very well maintained. We have been there before and find it consistently top notch.

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at the Black Bass Hotel; my husband had the tilefish, which he said was delicious; I had the crab au gratin - really fabulous and not too filling. Service was friendly and attentive. All the diners seemed energetic and happy - we sat next to another couple also celebrating their anniversary. We ate every last bit of the chocolate mousse dessert which we shared. Definitely returning to Black Bass with friends next time! Loved every minute!

It took 10 minutes for our server to greet us. She then took our drink orders after I had to ask for a wine/beer list. We had 4 kids with us to celebrate a birthday and upon taking our drink orders wanted to know if we were ready to order. The kids menu is not even listed on the menu...

It gets worse. My husband ordered soup with his meal and didn't get it. It took 15 more minutes for us to get bread at our table and she didn't check back to see if the food was good or if we needed anything. The food was good and the atmosphere is great being we sat outside and kids enjoyed the view of the river but it's definitely unfortunate that the service is not up to the standard it should.

Black Bass: PLEASE GET BETTER SERVERS WHO CARE ABOUT THE PATRONS AND OUR RETURN!!!

Terrific food overall. We stayed at the hotel and were able to buy a bottle of wine and take it up to our balcony after dinner. Setting on the river is beautiful. It is a very expensive dinner but due a special occasion, was great!

Have been here before and will be there again. A relaxed but upscale atmosphere. Food is always well prepared. My wife said her scallops over risotto was the best she ever had. My rack of lamb was prepared exactly as ordered and the sauce ladled over it was 'don't leave a drop on the plate' good.

Brunch was excellent with plenty of choices. Only problem was noise level so high we could barely carry on a civil conversation without yelling as well. Price a little high but you get more than you can eat and food was excellent. All courses.
Highly recommend if you can put up with the noise.

Overall, the food at the Black Bass is average - the type of food that you can eat at any restaurant. For some reason we were expecting our meals to be better, to have some "flair", a slightly different twist. We left unimpressed. The view looking out over the river is very nice but the reason to eat out is to get a good meal and our three lunches did not rise above. For the same or less $$ we can go to just about any other average restaurant and get the same meal. Thus, the only compelling reason to make the drive to the Black Bass is the view overlooking the river. From a business perspective, our sense was that this was the sole draw to the restaurant - the view. Focus on the view, get people in, and then serve an average meal. As a result of our lunch, we would not not go back at some future date and try dinner.

The Black Bass Restaurant is one of our favorites. Their specialty crab dish is nothing but lump crab meat in a creamy sauce and is absolutely delicious. Love their garden mojitos. The service is outstanding. The Black Bass will continue to be our very favorite restaurant.

The atmosphere and view beautiful. The service very pleasant, efficient and well informed. Thank you Casey. The food...We orderd the Shrimp app and Lobster & Crabmeat Upside Down Martini, $16 and 18 respectively, fairly unremarkable. Shrimp were small and the Martini not impressive at all. For entrees we had the Charleston Crab, Tile Fish and Salmon. The portions for the Crab and Tile Fish were ridiculously small. The Tile Fish was tasteless. The Salmon was probably the best of the three but no raves there either. For dessert we had the Blueberry Cobbler with Cinnamon ice cream, not bad, but nothing special. The Carrot Cake and Lemon Cake were excellent. We had been there to celebrate a birthday which was probably the best part of the evening. Our waitress brought a lovely little box of candy and a card from the Black Bass. Nice touch. Have been to this restaurant many times for lunch, brunch and dinner, but disappointed this time. We are not big eaters but found ourselves hungry by the time we arrived home after an hours drive. Not what you would expect after spending $300.00.

We were here before for a brunch and we enjoyed it. Now, for a mother's day dinner, we were seated in front of the door entrance and we felt the cold wind every time the door was open, we asked to be moved and we were simply ignored. The food was OK but not impressive and felt absolutely overpriced. The only strong point was our waitress, she was really nice

My husband took me to the Black Bass for Mother's Day dinner...another fantastic meal!
Started off with the cream of mushroom and cream of Cauliflour soups followed by the
seared asparagus with tasso ham. Absolutely delicious! My husband had the tile fish and
I had the salmon special topped with crabmeat. We are local from New Hope and this is our
favorite place to go. Not only for the food but the great service and ambiance! Had a very enjoyable night out!
