Casual, good food

Good food in a very casual environment. Staff was polite and accommodating. Good beer as they brew their own there. The menu was gigantic however which made it hard to choose.

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

Ordered a "special" and an entrée but was not served bread or a salad. Very basic service. Waitress had a rip in her leggings. Food was good though but nothing special.

We drove up for the Craft Show and decided to have Lunch at a place I remembered from 25 years ago as being a funky Mexican Restaurant, the funky part was accurate, the Mexican food was tasteless and very limited as to choice. Basic bar food. Sometimes memories should stay memories...

Great selection of food and prices . The lobster Ravioli was very good ... A nice place for family gathering. Staff were friendly and attentive.

**Disclaimer: This review is solely based on the chef and food of this restaurant. Our server was incredible and I hope to find her working at a new establishment worthy of her professional demeanor.** As alumni of the University, my friends and I visit often. We most look forward to our departing brunch. This past Sunday we chose Bacchus. Huge... More

Bacchus is very popular, so consider this an outlier review. The food is pretty ordinary and the noise level is high. I had a $10 serving of chili in a sourdough bread bowl. The chili was, to me, indistinguishable from the Hormel canned variety -- quite tasty, but not what I expect if I go to a touted restaurant. My... More
