Description: Following the success of T-BONES, the first Cactus Jack's opened in 1995 in Manchester. In 2007, the Laconia location became New Hampshire's first dual casual dining concept - with both Cactus Jack's and T-BONES - on Lake Winnipesaukee. While it keeps up the tradition of "homemade" dishes, the look and menu at CJ's has its own style. Attentive servers are always ready to serve guests authentic Southwestern, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and barbecue dishes that are unmatched in New Hampshire

“Mix Mex Grande”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Just terrible- I could not tell what was on my plate, all three items were "soggy". One of the items was not identifiable it was almost disintergrated to a pile of mush. My guess, they microwaved it becaue it got cold and we all know what that does to the totillas. Mush- very disappointed after all the rave reviews, won't return.

“Great Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

What a great find! Loved the Texas themed decor! Ironically, we ate here the night before flying out to Texas for a cruise. Staff was very nice, wasn't too long of a wait for a Friday night and the food was very good. Was an awesome way to start out our vacation. Having games to play on the electronic buzzer while waiting is a fun touch for the kids as well. Can't wait to come back someday.

“Food very good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The food was very good. This is more of a big bar than a restaurant. All the tables are right around the bar, music is loud so you can not hear what the person across the table is saying. I found it a bit much, I wanted a restaurant not some body doing hook-ups right next to me. The staff was very friendly.

“Good place for a casual dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We ended up here because they had the shortest wait at 7pm on a Saturday evening. It was a good meal and everyone was very friendly. The table nearest to us ha glutton free questions that the waitress couldn't answer, but someone with the knowledge was there in less than a minute to help out. Great teamwork. Decent pricing. If we're in the area again, we'll go back.

I have never been disappointed with any of their menu items. Great variety of dishes offered.
Also appreciate their Senior offer. Its easy to earn a $10 off your next dinner.
