Awesome Millionaire's Steak, Food was awesome, Service was awesome, and maybe it was the day of the week, but the eye candy was not too shabby either

well situated for the hotel, was very busy the night we visited, but had plenty of staff we were seated next to a open fire outside, good food and drinks at reasonable prices, worth a visit

Great restaurant. Service was just a little bit slow but other than that, food was awesome! Drinks were great as well! Will be coming back in the next couple days.

Very friendly welcome from the greeters, the servers and staff. This is a nice, happy place to eat or go for a drink and snacks. We really loved the (home made on the premises) butternut squash ravioli with prawns along with appetizer beef carpaccio. The Caesar salad and fish tacos were good, but not the best we've ever had.

Generally unimpressed with food - portions average to small for the price and quality was mediocre. I had short rib sandwich which seemed more like roast beef considering the au jus it came with. Was a bit salty and ends of the grilled bread were very hard. Fries were very good. My teens had a pesto chicken quesadilla which they... More

Wow. I need this restaurant in Oregon. Everybody was welcoming and paying attention to our needs while we ate. The Chinese chicken wrap was awesome, salmon is cooked right, not overcooked, pasta is not too oily and tasted better than many Italian restaurant. The salad was not too overwhelming on dressing, and they did not slack on on presentation of... More

It was a blazing hot day, so we were in search of a patio on which to feed our faces. As we were passing the Cactus Club Cafe, we couldn't help but notice the bright yellow umbrellas set up on their patio facing McLeod. The greeter was very pleasant, and the waitress even more so. There is a bit of... More

I've been a regular at the Cactus Club since the days of the rubber chicken. For those that don't understand, back in the early 90's the Cactus Club restaurant theme was well barnyard. Cows, rubber chickens, I almost remember hay on the wood floors?! lol University friends and I would drop in between classes for a bite. Good times. Fast... More

My wife and I have visited the NE Cactus Club a few times since my last review, so I'll comment on all those visits this time around. The food remains very good, the menu is excellent, drinks are great, the atmosphere is loud and lively, and the service is consistently good. There's a reason why it's my "go to" restaurant,... More

I had the appetizer ravioli and it was truly to die for, I shall dream about this for years to come. The steak however was probably the worse I've ever had. I ordered med rare, and it was raw, warmed on the outside, but raw on the inside. There were two of us and both our steaks were so tough... More
