Was looking for something a little different while up in New England. Had great sea food, but just wanted something simple and good. Came across some great reviews, and CJ's was close to the hotel so gave it a try during happy hour. Great chips and dip...the salsa was awesome. Drink specials were great as well. They had live music... More

We stopped in for our first visit last night. We selected CJ's (Cactus Jack's) based on the reviews here on TripAdvisor and on the menu posted on-line. We were not disappointed. In fact, we had one of the best experiences ever! We have some food allergies/sensitivities that can be a challenge when ordering. All too often, we get the impression... More

We have been going here for years. The food is always fresh and delicious. One of our favorites is the fried haddock tacos. Another great thing is the call ahead seating which we usually do so we don't have to wait as long.

My boyfriend and I frequent CJs. We always order a Nacho with refried beans no meat. It is not on the menu but it is AMAZING! I have gotten atleast 15 of my friends hooked on this! I'm not kidding. My boyfriend and I made it a tradition that every major life decision needs to be made over CJs Nachos.... More

Wonderful food, good service. The sweet potato fries were very good. There is a reason it is rated to highly.

CJ's - Same place as Cactus Jacks listed as another restaurant. Manchester, New Hampshire. 10/8/2013 I was looking forward to a great meal but have to say I was disappointed. The Tortilla Soup was OK but the Ribs seemed over cooked and the flavor was just OK. It almost had some kind of after taste. I opted for the grilled... More

Delicious food! Clam chowder was some of the best I've had in this area. Good service. We ate in the wartering hole" to avoid the 30 minute wait in the dining room. It was great. Will definitely return next time we are in the area!

We frequent CJ's. They have a large menu to choose from, and the service is usually spot on. I almost always get the fish tacos (so yummy). We have never had a bad meal. Two things to be aware of: 1. The house salsa has meat in it - order the vegetarian if you don't want that. 2. The kids... More
