We had 3 excellent meals on the outside patio. The relaxing atmosphere complemented the diversified entrees we enjoyed.

We met some friends for dinner on a Friday night at Bass Lake. It was a perfect summer evening and were able to get a table on the patio. So far, so good, but would the food and service complete the evening?

We were greeted at our table by Hailey who was our server for the evening. Our friends tend to have a dry sense of humor and she handled it beautifully. The wine and cocktails were of good quality and reasonably priced. We each ordered different types of salads and various entrees from the menu. Afterward we all agreed we were pleased with our choices. Nothing was outstanding, but all was very good.

All in all a very enjoyable evening. Great place to spend a summer night.

ALL of the menu items that we enjoyed were delicious and well prepared....the grilled veggie bruschetta was soooo yummy as well as the mediterranean and field greens salad! Eggplant and bistro sirloin with unique and tasty red pepper mashers great dinner choices...tomatoes in the caprese salad weren't farm to table fresh and a bit 'mealy' but the pickled onions in this salad were fantastic and really stole the show anyway. Request a table under the lighted trees on the patio for a romantic and cozy dinner.

Bass lake has a wonderful relaxed atmosphere! We've had several parties upstairs with great food! The outdoor patio is the place to be in the warm summer months!

I grew up in Chardon and while I have not lived in Ohio for 40 years, we always make it a point to dine at the Tavern when visiting. Whether it is a good fact or bad, we visit about once every two years and find the Tavern consistently delivering what we recalled from the previous visit - a reason to return when we are unfamiliar with other options. And it has never disappointed.

While the interior space is more cozy and confined, the summer patio is a treat. We dined here three times last weekend as summer in Ohio is to be treasured and dining outside is a must. The summer martini list included some innovative options including a Cucumber Cosmo that was my favorite. The wine by the glass option includes reasonably priced recognizable choices. Our three dinners included the walleye, gazpacho, tilapia, wedge salad, and a bountiful Sunday evening BBQ plate. All were good with the exception of a baked potato that included a large black portion that was inedible and of which we advised our server.

All dishes are nicely presented and have ambitious sides, in addition to the standard fare.

The Sunday evening Blues and BBQ was fun also due to a really good band. Not too loud, totally talented and a compliment to the summer evening.
