Very good food, with a lot of options

Great steak and seafood options. The prime ribs was very good. Service was good and the beer was cold. I'd come back. Prices were pretty fair as well. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals.

This place has always had great food and good portions, but the Palm Desert location also has the best cocktails! This place does not skimp on alcohol at all when you order a drink! I even had to ask for a little more coke with my rum because it was so strong! I love a place that actually serves you... More

We went to Cactus Jacks, had dinner and brought our own bottle of wine, corkage fee $10. I had the medium sized prime rib and my husband had the King Crab. Our dinner was rather expensive, Prime rib at $34 and the King Crab at $47, it was worth every penny. The dinner came with a delicious salad and we... More

You might pass this one by as it looks cheap, dark and a good place to take someone else's wife to. You would be wrong as it is a friendly local bar with great comfort food and huge portions. The drinks are also huge and inexpensive. You can even bring your own wine for only a $10 corkage. One of... More

Great Prime Rib. We usually go to the Palm Desert location. They have the best Prime Rib for a reasonable price in the valley. The service is very good and friendly. This location is not as loud as the Palm Desert location. All of the food here is great and reasonable price.

We visited Cactus Jack's on busy Valentine's, after our friends told us the prime rib beat ANY steakhouse in the valley.....and they were SO right!! We scored a nice corner booth for 4 in the back of the restaurant. The bar area was lively and everyone was having a fun time. The servers were great despite a full house, but... More

Love Cactus Jack's. It is our favorite restaurant in Indio. Locals know to dine in the back or bar area. Great service, food and cocktails. The prime rib is the best but there is a variety for everyone. When I want something lighter, I order the steak salad...very much "the deal." We have been going to Cactus Jack's for over... More
