Great place to eat with family. Great service and food. The atmosphere was casual. The owner was very friendly and gave suggestions on things to do. Will have to go there again before we leave

This restaurant was just a short walk from our condo at playa azul. The food was good, great atmosphere with cool antique wall hangings. TV with sports playing. Nice bar. Friendly staff.

Chose this restaurant because it was within walking distance to the condo my husband and I were renting while staying in Luquillo. Keep in mind this is your average run of the mill restaurant/bar, so no fine dining here and no fancy dishes to speak of. That being said, all the food my husband and I had was delicious and... More

Like something you might get at a bar and grill in the states. We missed the overwhelming friendliness that other posts rave about. Burgers, wraps and quesadillas that were just fine served in a toned-down Applebys-esque atmosphere. I'd rather pay $50 for food and drinks at the kioskos for my family, than $90 at The Brass Cactus.

JB and his staff are so friendly and give oustanding service. The ribs are to die for! The Mahi Mahi sandwich is pretty tasty as well. Definitely try the cactus punch. Great atmosphere, good food and great service.

Best mojitos ever! Order by the pitcher! Great food as well.. More American food but still good after a few days of rice and poorly cooked Puerto Rico chicken!

Thanks to JB and his staff, this place is a must visit if passing through or staying in Luquillo! Lesley behind the bar and the fun waiting staff offer a warm welcome. The ribs are a MUST - 1/2 portion enough for any hungry person (full portion advised only if you've not eaten all day and are ravenous!)
