Following the success of T-BONES, the first Cactus Jack's opened in 1995 in Manchester. In 2007, the Laconia location became New Hampshire's first dual casual dining concept - with both Cactus Jack's and T-BONES - on Lake Winnipesaukee. While it keeps up the tradition of "homemade" dishes, the look and menu at CJ's has its own style. Attentive servers are always ready to serve guests authentic Southwestern, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and barbecue dishes that are unmatched in New Hampshire.

Decided to try this place for dinner during a weeklong stay in the Winnepesaukee area. Nice casual feel and decor with a New Orleans vibe. We started with the bacon wrapped shrimp and jalapeño poppers as appetizers. Both were excellent, especially the bleu cheese sauce with the shrimp. For entrees we had Rajun Cajun haddock tacos, Mahi Mahi tacos, jerk... More

Every Tuesday eve. during the winter various amounts of us would head down to CJ's for a couple hours of trivia. there are 1/2 price beers and apps if a New England team is playing. Plenty of prizes. Great atmosphere. Never had a bad time whenever we went. During the summer you can sit on the deck upstairs at T-Bones... More

We love the Burgers, everyone has their oun favorite. Great place to go and just relax. Never had anything I didn't like. Can't wait till we go skiing and then enjoy our summer in Laconia, we come to Cactus Jack's at least once a week.

It was a cold, snowy day in Laconia, NH. The snow was mounting outside. Luckily, I have studded snow tires on my truck! Well, those tires tracked through the drifts and brought us to Cactus Jacks, where during every snow storm the burgers are only $5.99. How can you beat that? You can't. The chipotle cheddar burger really hit the... More
