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.

Great Ribs and lots of other Good Food

Good return trip to Cactus Jacks. My son wanted to try the ribs as he had a taster off another plate at an earlier visit. They cater for gluten intolerances so I didn't feel excluded as I love mexican food. All meals enjoyed for the 5 of us. Waiting staff attentive and helpful but not in your... read more

Cactus Jacks is owned and operated by T-Bones which is next door. This was clear by the food offered, quality and taste. More of a Mexican place however, not disappointing at all.

Good food, great service, great location, lot's of fun, and great Margarita's. Over looking the Lake Winnipesaukee, eating great food with good friends or family doesn't ever begin to describe the experience you'll have at Cactus Jack's. If you can, Cinco de mayo at Cactus Jack's is the best ever to win prizes, playing games, and having fun. It's always... More

My husband and I went this past weekend. I have a strong allergy to raw onions and asked if the nachos had onions in them and our waitress told us no. When they arrived low and behold raw onions!! The waitress felt really bad, not realizing they were in the pico de gallo. The staff couldn't have been more apologetic... More

Overall we enjoyed our meals and Nick our server was pleasant and attentive. We would dine there again though probably try T... More

We ate here last night after a busy day of Ziplining, traveling and checking into our Hotel. We've had a few mediocre meals while on our vacation and I'm happy to say this one was terrific! Our server Gina was friendly, professional and helpful without being intrusive. We didn't even realize we were there during "Happy Hour" so after sharing... More
