Terrible food. Ordered nachos and the beef was dry and burned. Pork carnitas were way too salty and the rice was gummy. Won't come back.More

We have been coming to this restaurant for a number of years. I have always ordered the grilled veggie panini. Unfortunately this item is no longer on the menu. They do have a varied menu so it was not difficult to find another option. I...More

Best rated place close to the hotel and I was hankering for some Tex-Mex. The parking lot passed the test. Lots of cars. The Tex-Mex part is iffy but then this isn't Texas. Nice menu with an eclectic profile. Ate in the bar. There was...More

Good food , service could have been better. Some construction going on but I don't think this was the reason for slow service. We sat in the bar area at a table. We don't drink alcohol this seemed to irritate the waitress.

Have been there with my wife several times. The BBQ chicken and steak is a good item menu. Also, the Fajitas are to die for. Their smoked Salsa is the best anywhere!. Unfortunately, the cocktails are very weak. You are better off ordering a soft...More

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
