Got More Than Expected

From the reviews I was expecting more of a grill atmosphere with burgers and upscale bar food. The dinner menu was more of America upscale fare. Not fine dining but not bar and frill food either. The menu included prime rib and shrimp scampi (which my husband had and loved). I had the fish and... read more

Food and service, excellent! For special occasions or just a great meal, this is the place to go! Prime rib was so tender, cut with a butter knife. Drinks were spot on as well.

They have great prime rib at a great price and such a good pastrami sandwich! If you like calamari this is one of my favorites especially at the Palm desert location. If you get a chance to catch live music at their palm desert location it's pretty nice inside otherwise they have a ni ccf e patio with excellent service.... More

One of very few places left.....where you truly get what you paid for: fresh, high quality food served in a comfortable, relaxed and clean environment. We came in for dinner and was greeted by a warm basket of delicious, San Francisco-style Sourdough bread, with that distinctive, crunchy, leathery crust. My girlfriend had the Panko Crusted Chicken Spinach Salad and I... More

Booked a booth out the back on the recommendation of the place we were staying. Local place, cool retro motel attached. The front section of the restaurant was empty and uninviting however as we walked out the back there was a good energy in the bar and dining room of locals chatting. Friendly and attentive staff. Meals were large but... More

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

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.
