  1. We just went to the Black Bass for brunch on Sunday and had a wonderful time! Great setting. It was very comfortable and we were right by the window. The service was good. My husband really enjoyed it! The food was good and the champagne glass was always refilled!

  2. I almost hate to give out one of our favorite Riverside restaurants but here it is: Charcoal on River Rd., Yardley. Fresh innovative food and it’s a BYOB!
