We ordered some apps from the happy hour menu during the football game on Sunday. The chicken wings were very dry and sticky. It was as if they had been cooked much earlier and warmed up before they were served. They even had a burnt side to each of them suggesting they had been sitting on the grill for a... More

They had a lobster roll (special) that looked very good. My Boneless chicken platter was OK. Pricy margaritas are served in a coke glass.. Mostly ice. Not an inexpensive place. Adequate service.

Any spot that has "Don't Drink The Water" while Dave Matthews is in town-has my business! Located on the main drag, it's a must!

We eat upstairs at T-bones more, but we felt like Mexican. We visited before seeing a show at Meadowbook, so we were on a time crunch to eat before the show. We enjoyed the Red Sox on TV specials ($3.50 Sam's Summer and some good onion rings) I had a chimicanga, which seemed a little smaller than any I have... More

Loved this restaurant! loved that it had healthy alternatives on the menu, i had the fajita salad which was amazing and my husband had the chicken burrito that he said was the best he's ever had. My daughter had some of their fries that had great seasoning on them. This was my favorite restaurant while on vacation!

Great food at reasonable prices! We've been to CJ's on multiple occassions and it's consistently good. The servers are always nice and prompt and their barternders are super friendly! We haven't ever had an issue getting a spot at the bar or a table for two but they don't have a ton of large tables so probably not great for... More

Come here on any evening in the summer and the parking lot is full. There's a good reason - Cactus Jack's and its cousin T-Bones, which occupies the upper floor of the same building, offer very good food at decent prices. Service is good too. We enjoyed ourselves here multiple times and never been disappointed.

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.
