I like the food and drinks I get here, but getting a drink is another story, I feel like I'm inconveniencing them to do there job! Mostly bad service at the bar! Other servers seem better. But I've been multiple times with same aggravating results.More

We stop often on our snowmobile in the winter and motorcycle during the summer. Hands-down the best boneless buffalo tenders I have ever had, the sauce to dip them in his out of this world. The chicken is breaded in cornflakes and is fried just...More

I love their Fish Tacos as well as any of their Quesadillas. If it's hot you want, tell the server you'd like to have a choice of their hot sauces. Sure to make you sweat!

Well, after a 30 minute wait at 7 pm on Saturday, we were seated next to the bathroom. Waitstaff was over-friendly. French fries were old, wrinkled and just warm. Had them replaced promptly. Here's a tip for all restaurants...I cook french fries at home, and...More

With the crowds outside, I expected better. The margaritas were nothing special... but still good. The menu was boring and the food was average, at best.

Following the success of T-BONES, the first Cactus Jack's opened in 1995 in Manchester. In 2007, the Laconia location became New Hampshire's first dual casual dining concept - with both Cactus Jack's and T-BONES - on Lake Winnipesaukee. While it keeps up the tradition of "homemade" dishes, the look and menu at CJ's has its own style. Attentive servers are always ready to serve guests authentic Southwestern, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and barbecue dishes that are unmatched in New Hampshire.
