“such a fun place , exactly what rockhampton needs !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Dined at the crooked cactus for the first time in a very long time again last night, and im really dissapointed that it took me so long to go back !!! had the best night !!! Had a reservation booked for 7.00, arrived at 6.30 for pre dinner drinks and was acknowledged & directed to the bar for drinks by a very polite waitress ( where we had a few different Delicious Margaritas !!) , then around 7 we were taken to our table , i ordered the specialty fajitas which were to die for, so fresh and full of flavour. My Partner ordered the jalisco steak which was cooked to perfection, tender and the marinade was incredible. The staff were all so happy, everytime i looked up they all seemed to be having so much fun, and there was always somebody around when we needed assistance. The only negative is the no table service drinks, which is just a personal preference, i would have ordered alot more if i didnt have to get up everytime . The manager then served us at the till & was so pleasant and had plenty of time to listen to our feedback. Over all 10 out of 10 for us, and we deffernitly wont be waiting so long before we return again !

“Great value get together”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

We had a staff member farewell at The Cactus and all enjoyed the meal. It's a real "pub" atmosphere and OK for a typical lunch but don't expect anything special. Hotel staff were very insistent that lunch finished at 2PM. Cheap enough though for a lunch get together.

“Best place in rocky by far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Loveeee, love love the crooked cactus! Best place in town by far, best food (wish they'd bring back their delicious tostada though) and great atmosphere. Prices are good for how large your meals are.. I'd choose crooked cactus over anywhere, anyday!

“Great authentic food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

I love this venue for it's ambiance and food. The prices are reasonable, facilities well maintained and cocktails worth trying.

It is not 'child friendly' with no facilities like a kids room for younger children who aren't interested in sitting still...so they'll use the pillows to pillow fight at the table.

Also, at different times we've found the service lacking. All in all, on a child free night, it's a place we'd like to return to.

“Friendly staff, tasty food, amazing sangria!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Dined on a Sunday night, quickly seated, drinks (jug of delicious sangria and a beer) ordered and delivered. Very polite waiter. Food was delicious, my burrito stuffed full of beef! Ordered the 'sweet nachos' as dessert and OH MY GOSH... AMAZING!!! highly recommend if you have a sweet tooth. Good menu options, not too spicy, great decor, pleasant staff, will definitely return.
