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.

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.

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

We walked around New Paltz and saw a nice crowd in this place. We were hungry so we decided to give it a go. I ordered the hummus plate as an appetizer it was very good and served with warm pita bread. I also ordered a salad with chicken which was just ok. My partner ordered a seafood pasta that... More

Enjoyed a pleasant Halloween evening here-- great selection of beer and an adequate menu. Would love to say all was wonderful but I do feel serving a hamburger with one minor piece of lettuce was a little cheap! That could be accepted but seeing an extra charge of $0.50 on the check for "honey mustard" left a nasty taste---- and... More

I had the Ahi Tuna Tacos. Outstanding . The humus is home made and very good as an appetizer . Service was excellent. They also have a vast beer selection and plenty of vegetarian options. Definitely going back!

This place is a bit dated but with 400 beers on the menu, who cares!! We stopped by here on our cycling ride from Rosendale and loved the menu. The food is very good and recommend you eat here. It's not fine dining, just traditional bar menu but above all the service was excellent!
