Black bass is amazing. We celebrated a birthday. My family came all the way from Brooklyn to join us. Can’t wait for warmer weather to sit outside. Thank you.

Fun night for my husbands birthday. We dined with another couple. I wasn’t too thrilled of the table placement but the view was spectacular. Drink menu was okay, wished their were more adventurous cocktails. We had the shrimp appetizer which we loved. My husband had the crab dish which was a house favorite and I had the scallops. Both dishes were delicious. Dessert too held it’s own! We were very happy and can’t wait to come back!

We have been going there for at least 5 years, great place but need to change menu once in a while. Get tired of having the same choices. Or provide some seasonal specials.

Ambiance was wonderful. Food was fine, nothing outstanding. It is very pricey. Shrimp app was wonderful, $5.00 for 1 xtra shrimp is kinda crazy considering I heard every waitstaff ask tables ordering it near us if they wanted to add a 4th shrimp, easy money!
I wouldn’t go back for dinner, but I would definitely go back for lunch which is

Wow, this restaurant is always a great place to celebrate a special occasion but I need to break that habit & come here more often. The creative menu, pleasant atmosphere & attentive service makes from a great time. Just wish we’d gone earlier to see the River better or walk downstairs by the River with cocktails. The best part is all the help I receive to make sure my meal is gluten free, dairy free and still packed with flavor. I even received fresh, warm GF rolls & olive oil. Maple Glazed Salmon was so moist, the crispy octopus is my favorite appetizer & the beet salad was very light & different. We’ll be back soon. Sue was the best server we’ve had in ages in any restaurant but she helped make my birthday dinner a treat.

Our waitress, Mary Alice, was excellent: very nice, professional, delightful, & attentive.
The food was very good, but I took away a seat, because 3 out of 4 of us ordered the filet & eggs, and the filet was not a good cut of meat. It was not tender, but quite tough, & difficult to chew. It was medium rare, as we ordered, but had been seared too long, making the outside much too crusty.
Everything else about our brunch was wonderful: appetizers desserts, etc. We will definitely return, as Black Bass holds many fond memories for all of us!

Very happy with our experience at Black Bass Restaurant! All aspects met our expectations - surpassed them really. I enjoyed a delicious bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer, Almond Coated Barramundi entree (yum - curried vegetable sauce), Chocolate Espresso desert, and a pomegranate martini. Pleased that they have many gluten free choices! Others in my party enjoyed the brussels sprouts appetizer, filet mignon, short ribs, blueberry cheesecake, raspberry tart and Creme Brûlée. Everything was presented beautifully and packed with flavor (except perhaps the GF dinner roll). The atmosphere is pleasing with historic elements, multiple dining areas, a cozy bar area, and it overlooks the river. We’ll definitely go back!

We requested a window table and were brought to a table in the corner no where near the window that overlooks the river.
Drinks were nice but the food was average and overpriced. 4 scallops and some root veg for $36 ! The duck was excellent however. Their signature dessert was a white mousse cake with a very rubbery almost skin on a pudding type of top. It was overly sweet but not very interesting.
There are other places to spend $150 for a night out in the area that might have a better value. Would go again, but perhaps for brunch.

There was only one waitress in the canal room, so service was a bit slow. Another server was needed.
The food was excellent from beginning to end. I must say the ice cream was sinfully delicious. It was good value for the price😀. My only suggestion is for the Black
Bass to vary its menu. The Charleston Meeting Crab was utterly mouthwatering and served piping hot.

We love the Black Bass Hotel and Restaurant and both continue to live up to our expectations! We stayed overnight' for Valentine's Day at one of their comfortable and charming suites, enjoyed the equally charming pub and simply loved our dining experience. We have dined and stayed at the Inn numerous times over the past several years and each experience has been wonderful. We are already making plans to visit the beautiful Bucks County area, and will definitely stay at our favorite Inn again!

Beautiful restaurant with excellent food. Unfortunately, the people on both sides of us were terribly loud. We adjourned to the lower level bar for desert. Three of the four of us had excellent meals. The fourth said the duck dish wasn’t that great. Great water views. Nice to have valet parking directly across the street.

The Black Bass is a lovely place to dine on the Delaware River. We had a table by the windows and it was very roomy to accomodate 4 of us. Our server was terrific.....really on the ball and very nice. The food was okay and pricey. I had the Cassoulet which did not taste that fresh. It was okay but not great. I wish they had more of an extended menu. Others in our group enjoy their "Signature Dish" or Crabmeat au Gratin. They get it every time!

This little inn has so much character. The dining room seating overlooked the river, so it was very scenic. Service was outstanding. Meals were ok. Not a huge selection of items for lunch, but the portions were large. They were accommodating when I asked if I could switch to French fries from polenta fries. A nice, relaxing afternoon overall.

If you enjoy a overly noisy, crowded dining room, this is the place for you... As good as the food is in this long-time favorite of ours, there is no reason for having tables so close together that the server or bus-person has to practically climb over you to in order to help the adjacent table. My wife was bumped several times while she was eating & I should also mention that the bus-person very courteously asked us 2 or 3 times if we were finished eating while food was still on our plate.

This is a lovely inn that has lost its charm by over-stuffing its main dining room, especially on a Saturday night. I expect much more from the Black Bass, considering its fine food & its somewhat pricey menu, but it didn't deliver.
