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

Don't judge a book by its cover. This restaurant is located in a strip mall, with very little to draw you in. Once you are there, however, the food is fabulous. Besides a full menu, they have daily specials. The Eggplant Barco (Seafood and Marinara sauce in a breaded and fried eggplant) is one of my favorites, along with the... More

I read the reviews in Trip Advisor. When the hotel clerk also suggested this place I had to go. Where else would you find an owner from Jordon with cooks from Mexico making Spanish food? The place is not easy to find because it is tucked in a little shopping center but it is worth the try. Mark talked me... More

We were just passing through Salisbury and happened to choose this restaurant for dinner. What an experience! The decor is fine. The service was great, especially our waiter Zach. The meal was a great one - totally unexpected for just picking a restaurant out of the blue. Conversations with the owner were a plus. Highly recommended.

Cactus Taverna is one of the best restaurants in Salisbury, especially for taking guests and for special occasions. There is a very diverse menu with many tasty specialties. We particularly enjoy the seafood and have always found it to be fresh with delicious sauces. The waitstaff is very professional and knowledgeable about the offerings and methods of preparation.

Hidden away in the corner of a strip mall but a real treasure. We will certainly be back soon. The proprietor and staff were excellent and ready whenever we needed them. The Proprietor made us feel like we were regulars on our 1st visit
