Dreadful tasting food, we had the Chicken and Avocado.....horrid texture and I nearly sent back but actually there was nothing wrong with it....apart from the taste.....they didn't have the wine we wanted, they brought the mains 1/2 way through eating the starter, the music was heavy US rock, no problem in a bar with a cold beer, not what you...

I went there expecting to enjoy great tasting mediterranean food and was sorely disappointed. The menu was very limited in choices, and the dolmandes(grape leaves)were awful. The decor was cheesy as well. Service was minimal and not that friendly despite us being the only ones in the dining room!

We were staying at the Kemah Boardwalk and decided to walk in to the older part.. its lovely to walk around in the evening, we saw the Bakkhus taverna and as we both love greek food decided to stop for dinner.. the Tzatziki was really good, moussaka very authentic in flavour and the Parmesan Fries were delicious.. loved the elderflower...

My wife and I love Bakkhus! Everything I've tried there has been good, but now I almost solely stick to the "medusa" burger and the triple order of hummus as an appetizer. The fire feta hummus with half regular/half fried pita bread will likely be the death of me because I eat so much of it. Friendly staff. If the... More

We like this place as their food is good and the staff friendly. so we feelthe service is more personalized. Great ambience too but the real reason I go is for the Cheese starter it is so delicious.

After a busy day working, I was invited to have dinner on this restaurant. Located in Kemah, it was a good surprise. We were in 3 and we had a salad and greek cheese as starters. My main course was lamb, a full rack. It was delicious. Tasty and cooked to perfection. The only recommendation is it could be shared... More

I've eaten here probably 4-5 times over the last couple years and I always have a good experience. The food is always fresh and the service excellent. It's nice to be away from the main boardwalk chaos. This place isn't like those other commercial places on the boardwalk, and the quality really shows!

Nice place in the middle of Kemah's old town area. Good covered deck for dining. I've eaten here several times, usually have the gyro sandwich or plate, decent but nothing to write home about. Very good selection of beers on draft. I refuse to do the Kemah Boardwalk, nothing but chain restaurants selling overpriced food to tourists. I'll give the... More
