Since Bascom's was opened in 2001, it has been generously rewarded every year with kudos from critics and multiple Best of the Bay Awards that celebrate the fine dining and traditional steakhouse fare that is always served with graciousness and style. The menu is a wonderful mix of the expected array of steaks, chops, and seafood. Modern additions such as fine wagyu beef and delicate tuna complete a menu that is sensitive to serving organic, hormone-free and environmentally conscientious meats and locally grown produce. Bascom's offers a glorious bone-in ribeye, served charred outside with that intense, rich, steak flavor that is often so hard to come by. The menu also offers a delicate but

I've never had a bad meal or inadequate service here. Keith is outstanding as a manager. Perfect PR skills. I've hosted several private parties for my family and each time the team exceeded my expectations.

We have always had a great experience here and Monday was no exception. Very nice hostess. Great table and the server, Christie, was one of the best ever! Christie was well versed in the specials for the evening and service was impeccable. The food was...outstanding as always. And Christie even met us in the lobby and opened the door when we were leaving. That is far above normal service. Absolutely a great dinning experience.More

Bascom’s Chop House was the choice for my birthday dinner and I was spectacular! The specials are extraordinary and the everyday menu is amazing. We had a special garlic shrimp appetizer that was so delicious my husband ended up dipping his bread rolls into the...sauce to enjoy it again. I had the lamb chops and they were perfectly cooked and seasoned exactly the way I like. The only thing not on point was the asparagus and that is my fault for ordering it out of season. The service was impeccable and our overall experience was fabulous.More

We dined here on a Saturday evening to celebrate birthdays for my wife and her best friend. The atmosphere was tremendous and the food was absolutely delicious. The ladies had filet steaks, my buddy had the prime rib while I chose a 16 ounce new...york strip. The steaks were perfectly cooked and mouthwatering. The server Justn was great as well. We will definitely be back. You will spend a few extra bucks than the local chain steakhouse, but the steaks and the service is absolutely worth it in my opinion. If you try Bascom's, you will be glad you did.More

First timers and we were definitely not disappointed. We started with the garlic shrimp and could have eaten it as the meal it was so good and the sauce should be bottled lol. The porter house and ny strip were absolutely delicious and cooked to...perfection. Scott our server was informative and kind and made us feel right at home. We joined the rewards program because we will definitely eat here again and again. Oh and the CHEESECAKE was the perfect ending to a well cooked meal.More

I have been to Bascom’s several times but had not been back in a few years. I’d heard a few times during that period that their service and quality had slipped. Regardless, this past weekend we were invited to go for an Anniversary celebration. Note:...this was during their first week after reopening due to Coronavirus and they were adhering to the required guidelines. We arrived early and were promptly seated upstairs, more than 6 feet from the nearest table. Our waiter Patrick immediately came over, since we were waiting for the Anniversary couple to arrive we ordered cocktails and I purchased a bottle of wine as an Anniversary gift for the table. I asked Patrick to close the check for the wine and he did. Within a few moments he returned to advise he hadn’t given me the weekend discount on the wine. He quickly corrected the bill and I received the discount. Our dinner companions arrived shortly after and Patrick came right over. He discussed specials, a few items that were not available that night, etc. We ordered a round of cocktails, champagne and a short time later ordered dinner. Since we all didn’t order starters and salads Patrick verified how we wanted the items to arrive. Everything arrived as requested. I can say from starters to dessert (including the complimentary Anniversary dessert), the food was wonderful. It all arrived hot, correctly cooked and at the same time. The singer Bascom’s has on weekends was a nice touch. His music was upbeat and fun, it added a good “vibe” to the evening. We were also checked on by a manager during our meal, a nice touch at an restaurant. However, what turned a dinner into an occasion was our server Patrick. His personally, professionalism and amazing service is something none of us will soon forget. His service alone is reason to return again soon.More
