Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night, Reservations, Takeout
Description: 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

“Fun place, yummy food”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Went here with the family, and we all really enjoyed it. The menu is huge! There was something for everyone. We started off with chicken nachos, and after that I was almost too full for anything else! But also had fajitas, which were very nice. Everyone very much enjoyed their meal. I have to particularly commend the service. I really wish I could remember our server's name, but she was just fantastic. So attentive and friendly, and great with the kids without being over the top. We had a really nice evening here.

“Great restaurant with super sports bar”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Loved the Steak. Wasn't too expensive and the bartender was a really good guy! I asked for the Packer-Bears game and he changed the channel on a bunch of Red Sox fans who wanted to fight....he protected my identity and kept the peace! Gave him a good tip for that!

“Best Fish Taco's Around”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

I thoroughly enjoy this watering hole along South Willow Street in Manchester, NH. The menu is a tasty mix of southwestern prepared food. My favorite is without a doubt the Fried Haddock Fish Tacos. The haddock is done to perfection and is then placed in a hard taco shell and then wrapped in a soft taco. They add their own spicy sauce and their chili-con-queso sauce. One is enough for me (the lunch size portion) but order two if you're hungry. The Margaritas are also outstanding. The decor is southwestern and the service is superb. You won't be disappointed.

“Best fish tacos anywhere”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

One of their signature dishes is the crispy haddock tacos, with fired haddock pieces wrapped in both a hard and soft taco shell.
They have two kinds of salsa, regular and smoked. The smoked is TDF.

The food was very good today, the service was very good as well. There is a nice selection of different types of foods. Come for lunch or go early to avoid the lines.
