“Great Racks at Cactus Jack's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Visited here for the first time on a reasonably quiet Wednesday evening. Met by efficient and friendly staff who had us seated with menus and drinks in a flash. Friendly service, cold beers and a good selection of food ticked all my boxes and was very impressed with the spicy chicken wing starter. The star of the show here though are the racks of ribs which are some of the best I have tasted and a huge portion. Highly recommended

“Good fun for my son”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Good food - with an extensive menu. Great that the glasses are chilled so you don't end up with watered down drinks from the ice. Have always had good food here, though the service can be a bit erratic - sometimes great and very attentive, sometimes feels a bit slow, probably depending on what time you go. If you go early and it is empty it is obviously quicker

My 5 year old enjoyed sitting in the 'jail', which was good for us as it meant that he couldn't get out to run around annoying other diners or playing with the life size cowboy statues! Will definitely go back - especially as he likes to go to "the cowboy place".

“Great menu, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

Loved that the drinks come in a chilled glass rather than filled to the brim with ice.

Food is always excellent here, but we didnt order off the lunch time menu as there is little choice.

But the quality is excellent and the atmosphere is spot on.

Will eat here again

“Prepare for a long night!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Firstly, I'd like to say the food here is nice. Now, the negatives. We were shown to our table at 7.50 pm, but were still trying to sort the bill out at 11.15 pm. To say the service is slow is an understatement. We had to ask for everything - more drinks, cutlery for the main course, plates to eat off, dessert menu, bill - there are lots of miserable staff milling around, but only a few actually working. They brought us a round of drinks by mistake, then charged us for them. They also tried to charge us extras that we didn't have - make sure you check your bill before paying. When we complained that the service was slow, we were shown a list of times of when our plates were cleared from our starters to the time our mains arrived. According to the waitress, 45 mins is acceptable "because we are busy tonight". Totally unacceptable, and not a good way to treat customers. As a lot of reviews are negative, I wish I'd researched this rubbish restaurant before I bothered going.
