    This is our favorite restaurant! We love the atmosphere and sitting by the windows looking at the river and the bridge lit up. The food is always good and even though they didn’t have my favorite special, the swordfish was juicy and the flavors melded well together!

    By far this is the nicest place that we go. We think of it as “our place”. The restaurant is right on the Delaware River, and the place is gorgeous. The service is top notch. Everything about the meal, from the first nibble of the cheese plate to the last scoop of dessert was perfect. You can’t go wrong at the Black Bass.

    stood at the hostess desk for 5 minutes while several employees walked by with no acknowledgment. Seasonal cocktail was very strong, undrinkable. Butternut Squash soup was butternut puree with no depth or flavor besides butternut squash. Rack of lamb was overcooked with steamed haricot verts that had none, zero seasoning on them. Scalloped potatoes had no seasoning. Luke warm as best. Short rib was served with carrots that were also just steamed, no seasoning at all. Ice cream scoop of mashed potatoes had a skin on them like the were pre scooped and sat under a heat lamp while the tender yet lacking flavor short rib was being reheated. Dessert was offered but we declined. Ridiculous paying $125 for a meal that we couldn't finish.

    We went to Sunday Brunch! Great drinks. Great view. Great food and Excellent service by Debbie!!! The cheese platter was a nice assortment - loved the Humboldt Fog— a first for me! The shrimp and grits were delicious, as was the quiche and omelette with Gruyère!! Pressed coffee in the individual coffee pots and the cappuccino were great as well!!

    One of our favorite places to be, and a second home to some of the best in the hospitality industry. Never had a bad meal, drink, or staff experience at the Bass or its sister locations. There's a reason it's consistently celebrated by so many at all times of the year. Do yourself a favor and book a table, or better, dinner with a night's stay.

    Finally found a local eatery that is good for special occasions. The tranquil river view and a calm dining room are what make the difference between the Black Bass Inn and other "country inns" in the area. The service was attentive, but relaxed and not stuffy. Our server was friendly and did not offer any gratuitous comments such as "good choice" when we ordered. Regrettably, the chef was a bit heavy-handed with the salt, from the bread to the French fries. However, I would still recommend the roasted Brussels sprouts with maple syrup and house-smoked bacon as an appetizer, but wouldn't order their signature crab au gratin. The highlight of the meal were the desserts and French pressed coffee. The chocolate hazelnut torte was just the right balance for the salty meal. Overall, a good experience and will come back for the next special occasion.

    The Black Bass is an outstanding restaurant. It has everything you could possibly look for..........great food, great service, fabulous drinks, charm and history.... located on the beautiful Delaware River; and in addition, ..........adjacent to the restaurant there is a great little pedestrian bridge to the Jersey side. I highly recommend the Black Bass it and have been enjoying each moment for the last 50 years. For a great dining experience, it's the Black Bass!!!

    I made reservations a week in advance for my son, daughter in law, and granddaughter who came from California and my husband. I would have canceled the reservation if I would have known that I was not able to go outside in the back to just show them the river and the seating outside with the U.S. flag lit up. I was told that I could not go down there that evening. I specifically chose the Black Bass to let them see how beautiful the inside of the building is and just wanted to share the beauty of the outside by letting them at least take a peek out back. AGAIN, if I would have known that we could not go downstairs and just take a quick look out back, I DEFINITELY would have canceled the reservation and gone elsewhere!!! It should be mentioned to ANYONE making a reservation when that section is reserved that the downstairs and outside is NOT available that particular evening, that would allow people to make other arrangements. We pay nice $ for the view, food, and ambience and all that the establishment offers as well! Needless to say, I was VERY disappointed as I specifically made the reservation there to bring my family all the way from California to your restaurant to experience ALL that it offers!!!

    We were celebrating our 45th anniversary and looking forward to our first visit to the Black Bass. Ambiance and service were great. Food was disappointing. Signature crab dish was a fair amount of crab with no flavor. Accompanied by unimpressive sides. Bolognese was fine but certainly not note worthy. Overall, not what I had hoped for.

    Service and ambiance were lovely! We ordered the special chateaubriand for two and agreed on it being cooked “medium.” We received two beautiful plates of well-done beef, crunchy carrots and green beans, and an ice cream scoop of mashed potatoes. It was all hot and tasty, so we didn’t complain. The bar was hopping, and we had a beautiful view of the Delaware River. We noticed a dedicated party room on our way out as well.

    The ambiance was lovely. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we could not have received better service from our wonder wait staff. The food was delicious and the menu perfect for a some occasion. Without prompting our server even asked if we wanted her to take our picture! While that was a lovely gesture, our photo cannot compete with the view outside the window!
