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

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.

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.
