Many good things, but no parking

Due to the high ratings here on Trip Advisor we expected more. The food was just OK, as were the drinks. The parking is not good; we had to park on the side of the road. The service was OK. A local told us the restaurant was hit or miss depending on the day and time you are there.

We happened upon the Brass Cactus the night we arrived in Luquillo, and were pleased to find a nice place that was close by. The service was excellent, happy hour drinks were a bargain, and the food was good. Nice atmosphere for both a happy hour and dinner. I'd stop there again - as a matter of fact, we did!

This is an Americanized pub catering to the many expats who live in and around Luquillo, offering really great pub food in a friendly environment. Even saw a sign on the wall that read Ozona Post Office which is a little town on Florida's west coast where we own a residential lot.

Opens 7 days a week! Decent menu variety and good prices. A must stop if you are in the Luquillo area. We come here at least twice per month. The Perfect Margarita is one of our favorite drinks!

My wife and I ate here during our vacation. Great atmosphere and our waitress was very attentive. My wife had the quesadilla from the appetizer menu and I had the chicken penne marinara. Both were fantastic and we will be returning during our next visit

We ended up going to the Brass Cactus due to the Tripadvisor App looking for nearby restaurants. Perhaps it is my fault for not reading the reviews more closely. I was expecting a place like Chili's or TGIF. To me it was a fairly rowdy bar that served food. It was extremely loud (unable to really carry on a conversation... More

Lets face it, if you are looking for something familiar and you are traveling through or staying in Luquillo area, this place is for you. We first visited in 2010 and have been back during three out of four more stays in P.R. Churrasco is the best, hands down. My 11yr old tried mine and was hooked. Apple crisp for... More
