I have dined at this restaurant many times as I live in Salisbury, MD while I attend pharmacy school at UMES. The menu is vast, I personally enjoy the surf n turf with an 8 oz steak and bacon wrapped scallops. The food is always cooked to order. Also the pork shanks are like "butter". If in or driving through... More

Don't let the strip shopping location deter you. This is by far one of the best Mediterranean blend restaurants we have ever eaten in. Their homemade salsa is beyond description; to the point I bought some to take with me! We had the lamb shank. The portion was generous and it was outstanding. The owner came to visit with us...

The food at Cactus Taverna is "Mediterranean" flavor and they offer a nice chose of items you don't get in other restaurants. Their fish is fresh and the sauce is wonderful. Their homemade Caesar Salad dressing is the best I've ever tasted! The restaurant is attractive and the service is superb. I highly recommend this restaurant for a very enjoyable... More

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. We talked about it and the spicing, the cooking method...he was very interested in how my husband prepares the same dish. Very friendly. Food was excellent. The restaurant is one... More

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. Choice of veggie was limited... More

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
