My family booked the Black Bass for an all afternoon memorial luncheon honoring my mother on 1/18/16. We had 140 people in attendance for a 4-course luncheon and the customer service was incredible! Grant, Kate, and the front desk staff went out of their way to make the day very special. Working with Kate on menu and beverage selections was... More

Yep, the original owners were Tories. So when Washington wanted stop here he was not admitted. Too bad because he would have thoroughly enjoyed it, especially in its current incarnation (see photos). The Black Bass still retains its colonial era charm but now the nine guest rooms have modern bathrooms (see photo). The rooms vary in size and decor. We... More

We were visiting family in New Jersey from UK and our son and daughter-law, Nathan and Debbie brought us to the Black Bass together with our granddaughter and Debbie's parents. We had a lovely warm welcome and the food and service was really, really, good. Would definitely recommend it.

The food is highly over priced for the quality on gets...the parsnip soup was very tasty....Their signature dish was very bland....for a signature dish you would expect something exceptional...while the burger was big it lacked taste and flavor. service was a...

We just returned from a lovely mid-week break to see the fall foliage in Bucks County. This hotel is a great favorite of my boyfriend, and I clearly see why. The hotel staff is friendly and welcoming. Our room was very attractively decorated, with a balcony overlooking the river. The bathroom should be a blueprint for every hotel - nicely... More

Very simple. Walked in and was immediately told by the hostess that they were "extremely backed up so please bear with us". Totally understandable, but becomes a bit unbearable when no one comes to your table after that moment for another thirty minutes. Appetizers took one hour from the time of seating. They were ok at best. Poured my own... More

I feel like the cook needs more practice. Most of our food was under-seasoned or lacking something and really missed the mark. They even managed to screw up biscuits and salads. I was embarrassed we brought a visitor here - truly this is not the best we can offer! We enjoyed the dessert and the beautiful view of the river,... More

Have been there many times, mostly for lunch. This last time was disappointing as the food quality was not good. The fish was rich and very over seasoned. My club sandwich was mostly bread and lettuce and the other ingredients were hard to find. The glasses of wine were also very stingy. The main attraction is the river view, but... More

Incredible restaurant, with great views of the river. I think the Charleston Meeting Street Crabmeat is still on the menu after forty years. The new owners have totally and spectacularly redone the rooms upstairs. If you are into bucolic charm, you can't beat the Black Bass.
