Dissapointed

We go to Wall every year without fail. We used to really like this place. The menu has been reduced by almost half. They seem to have lost a lot of the old staff. In any event the Cactus has really gone down hill. I write this mainly for the benefit of the ownership. If you read this please... read more

Went in. Asked what was on tap from two different waiters neither one knew answer. Looked at menu it had several white blank pages. They advertised at motels they serve buffalo steak and they don't. Not much on menu at all to order. Ordered a beer and it had no head on it. We paid for drinks and left. Went... More

We all enjoyed the buffet. We had our fill of fried chicken, pizza, pasta and salad bar. It was a nice variety and the service was good. We were seated quickly and the food was restocked continually. Nice place in the middle of town.

There were 3 tables when we got there, waiting 5 min to have the one waitress come over and then another 10 for her to come back and tell us what beers they had. We ordered drinks, waited another 5 min for her to come back and tell us she was wrong--they didn't have what we ordered. So, tried another... More

Wanted something before we hit the road. This is right across the street from Wall Drug. The hostess went to seat us and she and a young man( presumably an employee) argued about who our server would be. When I sat down the bench seat flipped up and stayed there. Sitting with my knees on the bottom of the table... More

They were not ready for visitors . We got waters and ask about types of sodas they had and was brought soda water . He didn't seem to understand us. Then we were told they were out if ice. We decided to go somewhere else .

We stopped here for lunch based on the billboards - they should have spent less money on the billboards and more on fixing up the place. Run down, not very clean, slow service, and not very good food. Very limited menu, so we ordered Buffalo burgers, and asked for them medium rare since Buffalo meet is very lean. They were... More

Stopped here while passing through Wall, South Dakota for dinner. I guess we were early in the tourist season because there was only one guy who was your hostess, waiter, and cashier. He was working the whole dining room by himself. He was very courteous and worked as quickly as he could. The atmosphere could use some cleaning up, looked... More

I found myself in Wall for a few nights as was on vacation and Wall is a good base to explore the local area. As I was the only tourist in Wall for 3 nights I found myself drifting towards this bar for this simple reason that it served cider. It didn't take long for me to make friends with... More
