Kemah >Bakkhus Taverna
This place Rules!. This place is just totally awesome. We go there for burgers on the patio and they are AMAZING! The whole place is family friendly, but the patio is perfect for your little munchkins to cruise around if they need to and not cause a scene. The fries are crazy good, I don't know how they do that, but it is worth the trip just for a side of fries. My kids love the meatballs and we always get the hummus starter. Mmmmm...fried flatbread. This place is not for someone on a diet! The food is so good, you will eat it ALL! Love Bakkhus!
Love the menu.
Bakkhus is one of my FAVORITE spots to eat in Kemah. The tuna steak is my favorite, but the locals all talk about the cheeseburgers - which are amazing. Also, I love the seasoned fries. What is that, parmesan?
...now I'm hungry.
Stomach Taverna!. When I got the bill I almost tossed my cookies. Talk about your tourist trap....Yikes!!!! I don't mind paying for a good meal, but this wasn't it. I sent the steak back because it was undercooked and then it came out near burnt, and I really don't like to send food back in the first place, but the horse was still bucking, so I didn't really have a choice. I can't believe they have the nerve to charge those kind of prices. The drink prices were even more ridiculous! They aren't looking for repeat business.
I ate here when they first opened and thought it was great and now on my return.....WHAT HAPPENED? They went from great to ghastly! Maybe they got a new owner or a different chef. The gyro tasted like cardboard. The server was like someone from "The Adam's Family". Actually, I think Lurch had more personality. I am having bad weekend. This is the second restaurant that I went to that was a huge disappointment. In all fairness though, it is Mardis Gras and Rodeo is going on, so maybe they don't have their regular staff......
Since I posted this review, someone called "dfoodie", wrote a comment of displeasure of this review, and I am guessing this person is the owner. My response to your comment is : "1". Grow up! Not everyone is going to like your food or your business....and don't whine about the bad reviews... or....lash out at the reviewer,.... do something more constructive....like, "FIXING THE PROBLEM" !!! Your food was awful and ridiculously expensive. If you sell "garbage" and have "bad waiters", ... people are going to tell others about it. And "2". I believe you,..... when you say that the gyro is the same one that you made when you opened in 2008.... and that is the problem....it tasted like it was 3 years old!!!
My Favorite spot in Kemah. I have eaten at Bakkhus for a couple of years. I have been happy with this place since the first day. Try the Fire Feta and the Moussaka(?). I've always liked Greek food, but now I absolutley love it. I'm going there again for my birthday party this year. Waitstaff, food, drinks, atmosphere and prices are all great. Just try it.
Tough Meat / Rude Service!. This was a crying shame. This is a cute restaurant with bad food. I ordered the special of the day. Oh! it was special alright..... I never really understood what they meant by a steak being as tough as shoe leather until I ate at this place. The waitress was beautiful, but unfortunately, she then opened her mouth......everything that came out was rude. She had no time for us and she was doing us a favor to wait on us.....LUCKY ME! It was late and I think they were about to become a bar for the rest of the night. I had my family with me and i was a little disturbed by the conversation going on behind the bar. The staff should be more professional than that.
