The prime rib and seasonal vegis were to die for! The problem was the lack of service. We had a 6pm reservation and arrived about 15 minutes early. To start our visit, the hostess was not at her station, saw us but didn't acknowledge for several minutes. We took an early reservation in hopes of receiving good service. Our server... More

They have definitely gone WAY downhill. First, they changed chefs and now they've lost Alain. The food was mediocre, at best, and service was terrible! Got rid of the choice of sizes on their filet mignon and will not split plates, even for an additional charge. Been coming here for 12 years and enjoyed it until recently, guess we will... More

Second time to this place and did not disappoint. We wanted scallops for appetizers but they were only listed as an entree. Dave our waiter fixed that issue and got us 3 each with lemon foam cooked to perfection. Our mains prime rib and pork chop were excellent. Salad was nice and service could not be better, the executive chief... More

David was great. Way too much cheese on the seasonal salad. More watermelon instead would be better. Otherwise I give it a 5 tonight.

“We were chagrined to read your recent review of Cactus Creek Prime Steakhouse. Allow me to say that your assumption that the reservation time was due to staffing was right on point.

Constructive feedback is very important to us here at Cactus Creek. We have taken some time to thoroughly vet the comments in your review. We are happy that you found our prime rib satisfactory. Our 100% "USDA Prime", Prime Rib is slow cooked for 12-14 hours. As you experienced; it is exceptionally tender. We take great pride in preparing it... More

We decided to go to Cactus Creek for Valentine's Day (a day earlier because they were booked until late on the day itself). We hadn't been for several years but fondly remembered its prime quality beef. Well, we were let down. Service is terrific, seating comfortable, but the ambience leaves much to be desired since they have white spot lights... More
