Decided to try something new in New Paltz. Had some friends come up from Long Island and we decided to go here. We were seated upstairs. It is kinda dark for my liking, but it was fine. We received the menu and the four page beer listing!!!!! it has over 400 beers on it!!!! Nevertheless--we picked out what we wanted... More

Great place to stop in for a quick bite to eat and a drink. Definitely a place to hang out with some locals and have a pint. Laid back atmosphere and decent prices.

We spend our summers in this town & visit lots & lots of restaurants while we're here in June & July. We've been to this place before - sometimes for dinner, sometimes in the bar to hear a local band perform. We planned an engagement party for our daughter while we were in NY so our friends & relatives could... More

We walked up and down the main road for a while and eventually decided to stop in here. The service was amazing and we couldn't speak more highly of the waitress. The food seems like typical bar fare but it was not only fairly priced but amazingly delicious. We actually thought about ordering more food to go to have some... More

At first seating I had high hopes for a very reasonably priced restaurant. That all fell apart very quickly. Service was a nightmare after 3 large parties arrived. Apparently the mgmt. hasn't told that support is a key to things flowing soothly during a rush. Our server tried her best but when food finally arrived it was the wrong menu... More

I enjoy Bacchus for lunch, and the bar at happy hour. The menu is pretty basic with burgers, burritos etc. There are many beers on tap. You can definitely feel that you are in a college town.

Great selection of rotating craft beers on tap and hard to find beers. Try the wings too, I think they're the best in New Paltz. We've tried many of the appetizers and liked the spin on all of them. Becomes a college hang out in the evening.

Average place for a burger and a beer. Parking could be difficult, but most of their business is from college kids walking. Clean - good service.

We enjoy coming here for a quick bite to eat and a beer or two after a long hike. The service is always very good and the food is better than average. My only mistake was ordering the Risotto. It was just not good. My fault. I should have never ordered Risotto here. Otherwise, everything else is always good.

This restaurant serves pretty good bar fare and the prices are great. The place is the most popular bar and hangout for locals, and has a reputation among hikers and rock climbers who come to visit New Paltz. There is a great bar, lots of booths, a quieter upstairs with a salad bar, an outdoor patio - it has it... More
