Reserved a high top table but when we arrived no tables available. We were given a table in the pathway of the servers and view of the serving trays. Our food was great and a nice new waiter!

We sat on the patio, so there was little noise and we were sitting quite far from other tables.
Max was great and speaks several languages.

Our first time at Cactus a month or so was fantastic! So great, we bragged about it to our family and took them there this past Friday night. We were so disappointed. Waitress was sweet but not very attentive. A couple of our dinners were warm at best. It’s not completely off of our list but will be awhile before we give it another shot.

The food and service is good, but the best thing about Cactus is their patio. Felt very safe and Covid friendly. The heaters were awesome on a cool spring evening. Didn’t even need to wear a coat!! Only thing that wasn’t great was that people at a table nearby were smoking:/ We will be back this summer mainly because of their awesome patio and outdoor space!!

Always a favorite of mine. The fajitas are the best I’ve ever had and the service is warm and friendly. Hands down, this is my favorite local restaurant to support.

Even though we had reservations we were seated in an odd high traffic area. The food took more than an hour before it was served so it seemed like they had too many takeout orders and not enough staff for the dining in customers.

The food seem to have sat for a while before it was brought out although that was hard to determine. We had to send one entrée back. We were there for over 2 1/2 hours and that is much longer than anticipated for a casual meal at a restaurant like cactus.
Prior experiences have been much more positive for the food quality, service and seating arrangements so we will probably give it another try.

Food and margaritas were delicious as usual. Service left something to be desired. Servers were very nice but not as attentive as they normally are. Maybe they were short staffed? We will be back though!

The back room isn’t as pleasing to sit in as the front room. Especially if your back where the chairs are stored.

I love your restaurant except this visit was not good. We waited over an hour for our food and were there over three hours total. Our waitress was trying to do a good job, told us that the takeout orders were so many that they couldn’t keep up with food in the restaurant. I thought the manager might come out and talk with us apologize for the slowness. No manager no compensation very disappointed. Will be a while till we return.

The bar was incredibly slow; we waited much too long for draft beers and margaritas (nothing special). When the bar can't deliver timely drinks on a Friday at 6:30 when the restaurant is not full, there is a. problem.
