Lots of vegetarian options!

Stopped here on our way back to NYC from upstate NY. Loved the tofu chicken wings. They were crunchy on the outside and firm on the inside. Didn't expect them to be so good. Our salads were good too but mine was a bit too heavily dressed for me. Server was very pleasant as well. Would come... read more

We stopped here on a whim & we were SO glad we did! My BF had the Chicken Chimichanga and loved it. I had the salad, adding the marinated tofu - and it was excellent! Our meals were so good, we came back two days later & ordered the same meal again. Although we added the tofu chicken wings which... More

Not a brewery but good food and good times. If you want to try all the beer this is you place. So many on tqp and a billion bottles to choose from.

We were offered a 2nd floor table with a view of the bandstand. That sounded good, except that the band spent an hour setting up and tuning up--not very entertaining. The service was efficient and friendly and the food was OK but neither of us raved about anything except the beer list. It would take weeks to try every beer... More

We have been here before & when we had guests visiting us we decided to take them. It was an off hour, mid day...between lunch & dinner. When we arrived there were not many people seated. We wanted to sit out on the patio because the weather was so nice. No body was out there. So we asked the bartender... More

this is a low key fun pool hall with outdoor seating. nice place for a summer night, lots of pool tables, good enough food, a great place to spend an evening with friends. I loved the etcetera #11 ale. This is a good stop to get a snack and check your map if you are hiking in the area.

My husband's gluten intolerance has made me research restaurants before we dine. This one has excellent food, reasonable prices and a staff that was knowledgable about how nearly any meal on the menu can be prepared gluten free. Service was prompt, our server was extremely helpful and the food we had was flavorful and well prepared.

This is by far one of my favorite places to eat in New Paltz. It is always my first place to want to eat and I am never disappointed each and every time I come here. I have had several things off the menu (chipotle pulled pork sandwich, chili, steak sandwich, pulled pork quesadilla, veggie burger, chicken salad sandwich, tofu... More

A day trip from New York City to show off my childhood town of New Paltz brought our group of four back to Bacchus. Two of us had been there two years ago and my daughter remembered coming here twenty years ago. A very funky place with lots of choices. They even brew three of their 400 kinds of beer.... More
