Great Bar and Grill in Downtown Luquillo

We ate here once and would definitely go back. Great atmosphere and awesome food. the Baby back ribs were to die for. Great waitress and good drinks for a reasonable price. Lots of memorabilia on the walls made for a relaxing evening having dinner and drinks.

We expected more bad on the reviews here. The ceviche was gross and had a bad smell. My burger was under cooked. I could have gotten better chips and salsa from the Amigos across town. The service was meh. Overall very disappointed.

While staying at the Gran Melia in Rio Grande, my wife and I were looking for a reasonably priced restaurant that served tasty food and excellent drinks, and found both just a short drive away at The Brass Cactus in Luquillo. We were seated within 5 minutes of entry at 6:00 p.m. on a Thursday night, and served by friendly... More

Food was decent but we waited 10mins to be seated and then an hour to be served. We had to order several drinks to keep us occupied in the meantime (perhaps that's their plan). The sangria was excellent. We would not go there again to eat but would be ok just for drinks. Interesting décor. Some items pricey, others are... More

Before arriving at the Cactus, the food we had at other restaurants was not good. The Brass Cactus had good food. In Puerto Rico, you will wait longer for the arrival of your dinner than you will in the US; that's fine with us. We were on vacation, and the Cactus had that leisurely style. They had a nice selection... More

We stopped at the Brass Cactus for dinner on the first night we arrived in PR, literally on our way from the airport to the condo we were staying at in Luquillo. It's a cool little place with good food and good atmosphere. I would say that it serves a mix of local and American food. My husband got the... More

So we get there and we order. First my friend orders a beer and the waitress sya they don't have it. Then he orders another type of beer and she says that type of beer is the only pne that exists. Ok...so then we proceed to wait for 45 minutes for burgers and fries. They're fine, at least the food... More

We've been here several times and I have many really positive things to say. On all but one occasion, we've had outstanding service. The owner is friendly and chatted with us a bit on our last visit. The food is good and priced reasonably. The drinks are good and quite possibly the least expensive on our entire trip. (If you... More
