Don’t come here for the ambience, unless you like down home, family styled restaurants that happen to have good food and some excellent craft beers. If you do, Bassett’s is a place you don’t want to miss. The food is ample and excellent! I highly...More

Soup, sandwiches, salads, brunch, entrees, and desserts on their plentiful menu. Good serving sizes, always friendly staff, charming decor. It's not fancy but the food and service are satisfying. The location might seem isolated but all roads in Montgomery County run through Poolesville.

Took the family, including some young people, for dinner. Had fish and chips - very good. Others had fried chicken sandwich, shrimp poor boy. Food was good and enjoyed by all. Good menu selections available and prices were comparable.

Ordered a giant pretzel, and it was GIANT. Got a club sandwich and some kids meals. The kids pizza was very large, and the mac-n-cheese was really tasty as well. The price was a bit higher than expected, but the food was great.

Mediocre food that caters to a bland palate. The crab dip was way too oily and the burgers were served on soggy buns. Service was solid though and the wine list was decent.

Expect a menu change. People are friendly, service is good, but the food we had was average at best. Not the same menu/flavors as a month or so ago.
