    Relaxing anniversary celebration on a Tuesday night. Our server took time to answer questions. The meal was spaced out nicely and we didn't feel rushed to finish and leave. Great Ribeye cooked to perfection. My wife loved the walleye. The seasonal menu had so many great options that we will have to return to partake in more of the spring offerings.

    Calamari and rock shrimp is something you have to try. I only order order when I know it’s going to be a really good chef and I’m so glad I did because it was fantastic The Walleye was probably the best we ever had! Bacchus has ramped up a notch and we were very pleasantly surprised. Love the overall atmosphere there!

    There is nothing bad I can about our recent visit to Bacchus. This restaurant is always outstanding; but it actually was even better than usual. We had dinner with our son and daughter in-law; this could not have been better. Daughter in law and I had the pecan crusted salmon; the men had the rib-eye which was a special that night. The wine list is what Bacchus is known for; and there was no disappointment in the Oregon wine I selected for $55/bottle. I highly recommend Bacchus and look forward to returning again soon.

    This was a very special occasion as it was our 39th wedding anniversary. Over the years we have heard good things about Bacchus but this was our first and certainly not last visit. The hi-lite was our server Christine who did a great job and meal from start to finish was first class.

    Great meal and excellent service but entirely too rushed. It was rapid fire food delivery and the overall time in the restaurant was less than 90 minutes. At one point we even told our server that we were in no rush. Apparently the kitchen was. Kind of ruined the meal but its still 4 stars.
