“Awesome potato au gratin, and everything else great too”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Ok, maybe its a bit strange to rave about a side dish, but wait till you eat it. Easily best potatoes I have ever had. We had a table at the glass windows overlooking the river - with my lady getting the view of the pedestrian bridge. Very nice. As we had had drinks prior, we went with wine by the glass. Both were very nice, and good size pour. For apps we had the crab chowder and the crispy salt-and-pepper squid. The former was ok, but nothing special. The squid was very unique, very good. But, as described, a strong salt-and-pepper taste. For mains we had the cod Asian flavored style and the scallops with crispy pork belly and a each bourbon sauce. Both were excellent flavors - and the cod was a nice portion as well. Service was spot on, as you would expect. Its not a cheap place, but it is worth the money. Want a unique romantic night? Here is my suggestion... for people from New Jersey...drive to Stockton and have a drink at the Stockton Inn bar - suck in the history of the place [you'll return another time for dinner]. Then drive 5 miles north along the river to Bulls Island State Park - pull in and park. Walk to Pennsylvania on the only Delaware-crossing pedestrian-only bridge - and straight into the Black Bass. Enjoy.

“Birthday Dinner at The Black Bass”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We visited the Black Bass for a celebratory birthday dinner for two on June 30, 2014.

We had requested a table adjacent to the window
and enjoyed a beautiful view of the river at sunset

Our salads, roasted rhubarb salads were enjoyable and
our entrees, a filet mignon and sea scallops respectively were good both in taste and texture

Our waiter, Eric, provided nice service and we acknowledged him with a 20% tip

All in all, it was a was nice venue and a nice dining experience.

“Amazing Place”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Beautiful view and excellent food. Sit outside to really enjoy it. Our server was very good. The mango, lobster and crab appetizer was delicious and the fish entrees were as well. Relaxing and enjoyable. We definitely would return there.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

I want to start my review by saying that our server Karen was wonderful. Knowledgeable and kind, friendly and hard working. That's pretty much the best thing I can say about our experience this past weekend. I made the reservation for our dinner over a month in advance. There were 6 of us and we were celebrating my parents' 45th wedding anniversary. Our reservations were at 7...and we didn't get our meals until almost 9! And the food they brought wasn't the correct order! We were ready to just eat what was in front of us because we were so hungry, but they took it away. They did compensate by bringing free drinks and desserts, but who wants to eat dessert that late? My parents ordered a dessert to go, which was fine, but overall just disappointed. We have always loved the Black Bass, celebrating many important life occasions there, but now I'll second guess any future decisions to return.
