Had brunch on Sunday twice and have been pleasantly surprised by the good quality and affordable price. You even get a nice glass of bubbly with your meal. Eat outside and enjoy the covered patio while watching an interesting show of rural vehicles drive by.

Found this place using Hertz GPS while in Maryland for business. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. The food was great and well prepared. My issue was the manager on duty, an obviously well-fed blonde, felt the need to chew out our waitress over...More

We often go to Basset's for special reason for just to enjoy a great meal. It is family run with lots of local people and culture. No one should get too or through Poolsville with our stoping for a meal/

This is a real neighborhood gathering place. The bar is designed for friendly conversation, the decorations, for the season, but the wait staff is among the best I have ever encountered. I visited twice in the last week, once for brunch and once for lunch....More

First disappointment was receiving rolls with margarine not real butter. Clam chowder had celery in it, but ok. The crab cake sandwich was small & I didn't care for the breading. They forgot my husband's side dish, and the salmon was just ok & did...More
