Great food and good atmosphere

Have eaten at Cactus club for both lunch and dinner. Everything I have had has been great but my favourite is the short rib sandwich. The rice bowls are great too. Has a bar area for a drink or to watch the game and a separate dining area. If in the area this is a great choice.

We only get to the Cactus Club about 3-4 times a year, but are never disappointed with the service or the food. A favorite is the squash ravioli with prawns, absolutely to die for! Tons of calories in this one, but worth it. Lettuce wraps are delicious, but quite spicy so just a warning if you don't like it too... More

The presentation of the food and drinks were very appetizing. The Bellini's and Sangria were our favorites. The food was very tasty and Service was good.

I went with a group of 5: my mom, brother, brother's girlfriend, and a friend. The staff greeted us promptly and seated us immediately even though they were incredibly busy. We ordered drinks, which were all incredible. I highly recommend the Bellini! After drinks, our meals came and every one of us were satisfied. My favorite is the jambalaya rice... More

Went to celebrate my 40th. The food was amazing. I had a flavourful steak with perfectly prepared asparagus and some of the best mashed potatoes I had ever eaten. I had to restrain myself from licking the plate. The service was attentive without being intrusive. It was busy, but it is a big restaurant and we were seated right away... More

This was the first time we went to this restaurant and we both really enjoyed it. We went on a Thursday evening - the place was quite full and the atmosphere was very lively. Plenty of staff and service was really good. The Signature Caesar is delicious with an interesting and tasty skewer of garnishes. Caesar salad very tasty; cheddar... More

We go here often, for both work and personal. The atmosphere is great and the food is always good. I found the food choices to be unique and very tasty. The service is usually good as well. Be prepared, as it is often busy. But they are pros at getting people in and out in a reasonable timeframe. Especially at... More

We haven't been to Cactus Club since the days of the bad cow print couches and even more bad service. When I walked in the door I was shocked at the transformation this restaurant has gone through since my last visit all those years ago. They had a very nice wine selection, and the menu was quite diverse. The food... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat. Lots of great food choices and drinks. The servers are always very friendly and I find the place is clean. They do take reservations but the latest is 6:00pm. After that they do first come, first serve. The wait can be a bit long on a Friday or Saturday night so... More

We recently returned to Calgary and this year made it to the Cactus Club. We'd stayed near the airport last year and had then considered going to the Cactus Club, but dismissed it as just another "family restaurant" - our loss. Later, we were fortunate enough for friends to suggest we have lunch at the Cactus Club, on English Bay... More
