As a well established restaurant, the atmosphere was quaint old New England and the decor had that historic charm. We had high hopes. Our waiter was friendly and attentive but after the food was served, he never returned to inquire until time to clear away...More

We visit the Bass Tavern several times whenever we are in Truro. The menu is a smaller version of the main restaurant. Food is excellent as is the service. Don't leave without trying their spreadable cheese - we take a couple home to enjoy after...More
