We have been visiting the Black Bass for years, for Sunday brunches, lunches and dinners. The location is wonderful-- the drive up River Road from Washington's Crossing is so quintessential Bucks County, and when you are seated, the dining room looks out on the lovely Delaware River (or you can sit outdoors overlooking the river in nice weather, but on the day we were there the temperature was 102 unbelievable degrees and outdoors was the last place we wanted to be).
We had not been back since the place was refurbished under new ownership, and while I do miss the authentic slight shabbiness that came with the inn's many, many years of operation, I have to say that the restoration is very attractive. However, at least on the day we were there for lunch, the food was entirely ordinary, accompanied by hard-as-rock herb rolls that we speculated might have been made from leftover Revolutionary War cannon balls. All in all, not up to the many good reviews we have seen, I'm sorry to say.
