If you're heading to or from Ocean City, Cactus Taverna is a great choice for a good meal. The owner is often there and always helpful with all parts of the operation.

The owner, Imad, is always there to great guest at their tables and let them try a free sample of port wine. Great atmosphere, great food, and great service! Will also have live music on most weekends. One of the few go-to restaurants in Salisbury.

While in Salisbury for a work trip, I ate here two nights in a row. Excellent menu with spectacular service. Piano player on Wednesday nights adds great ambience! I’ll definitely be back!

The name does not tell the whole story. Cactus Taverna is a little bit southwestern, a little bit Mediterranean, and some Americana! Be it fried, grilled or roasted you can count on it being good. Our fav is the lamb shanks. Great hospitality too!

Wonderful food and service. Good variety of menu appetizers and entrees, as well as daily specials. Listed as Mediterranean, but not too typical. Fish was outstanding, perfectly done. Good sized portions too. A complimentary glass of port after dinner was an nice touch.
