This restaurant is run by some one who cares! The owner/manager was on the floor the night we dined, approached us at our table and asked how our meal was.

My last visit was scrumptious. I had had rockfish once, that was not good, but tried it again, this night, and it was good. I would recommend anyone going to Cactus Taverna.

The name would imply a "Mexican" or Spanish establishment. I guess if you count stale tortilla chips and watered down salsa I guess that qualifies. Ordered main dish Chicken Chesapeake.. the sauce, again, watered down and the chicken piece was dry and tasteless. Appearance of the food on the plate left much to be desired.

This restaurant has wonderful food and good service but it can be noisy, especially on weekends. But that's because they are usually busy.

Love, love, love this place!!! We just got back from eating dinner here tonight. We've been many times over the last few years and will keep going back. It is a little gem of a place "hidden" in a nothing-special strip mall. The food is always excellent, the atmosphere just right, and the service very good. They always have an... More

My girlfriends and I were looking for something different for dinner before our movie this Friday. We decided to give Cactus Taverna a try! What a treat. I have been going on and on about it and we have yet to leave the booth. Our servers name was Adrian. He was excellent! After he went over all of the specials... More

I was lucky enough to stumble upon the Cactus Taverna! The food here is delicious. I hope that if I'm ever in the area again that I can come here again! Highly recommend.
