My husband and I had dinner here for Valentine's Day. We had not visited the restaurant in quite a while but found the food and service as good as we remembered it to be. The Restaurant has a great atmosphere with the owner on site to greet and say a few words to each and every diner making sure that... 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.

I had gotten a gift card for this restaurant last year and was honestly dreading going due to a bad experience previously. I was pleasantly surprised though. First the service was amazing. The waiter was a very friendly, laid back guy who was a nice mix of being attentive but not being pushy. The owner came around and check on... More

Loved this restaurant! The service was outstanding. The owner was very visible and seemed to truly care that all the Cactus Traverna patrons were more than satisfied with the quality of the food. Made reservations for our New Year's Eve dinner and even though the restaurant was full, we only waited about 10 minutes beyond our reservation time.....very acceptable. Within... More

Cactus Taverna was one of the most memorable experiences my girlfriend and I had during a recent trip to the Ocean City area. We opted to stay in Salisbury instead of Ocean City proper and found Cactus Taverna through online forums, and the restaurant didn't disappoint. The seafood is absolutely delicious - I went with the grouper, and it was... More

Unbelievable. Found this gem on TA, and pulled up to the end of a strip center and walked in to what appeared to be a Mexican restaurant. They even served fresh salsa and hot chips. I opened up the menu to an eclectic mix of Mediterranean/Greek items, Spanish tapas, and many more steak and fish options. By options I mean... More

The best thing I can say about this restaurant is that the people employed there are outstanding. The food however is uneven. Anything Mexican, was excellent, including the Black Bean soup. I had surf and turf, which was Shrimp. The steak was unappealing at best. It had fat and grizzle around the edges that had to be cut away, reducing... More
