We stopped for a quick dinner here on our way back from the rain forest. The food was good and they had multiple TVs which was good on a college football Saturday. Our waiter was top notch and the service was quick. The food was very good. The owner even stopped us on the way out to thank us. Definitely... More

We stopped at The Brass Cactus for lunch on 9/2/16. Our server was very friendly, and we enjoyed a large lunch of Ceviche appetizer, fish tacos, mahi mahi wrap and a couple of local Medallo beers. The wrap was so big I couldn't finish it, but it was delicious. Some local folks later told us that thing to order there... More

Many people recommend this place for their food but their pallets must be damaged because their wasn't one good dish on our table. The prices are ridiculous for what your getting and the service is very lacking!! Would never return and I now live very close by the area.

The Brass Cactus exceeded our expectations - which were already pretty high based on other recommendations and past experiences of family and friends. We were presently surprised that they had a kids menu and that they had mac and cheese for the girls! yes! Our girls can eat their rice and beans ... but it was nice that they had... More

We have been to Fajardo more times than I can count and we always get stuck eating at the same places... This time we branched out. The Brass Cactus is exactly what we have been missing in our trips. Portions are massive, food is phenomenal, drinks are strong, staff is overly friendly and the ambiance is so inviting.. Can't wait... More

Enjoyed dinner there one night recently while staying in Luquillo. Enjoyed the fun and unique decor and had a great dinner. Menus leans toward american which suited us just fine. The owner stopped by to make sure all was fine which is always appreciated.

Food was good as usual, but service by Cynthia was the best in a long time and at other restaurants. We loved the quesadillas. They were super crunchy. Still, Cynthia was the highlight. 4 stars food amd 5 for her.
