Nice atmosphere, good service, good drinks, the mexican food was very good and the prices were higher than expected but not too bad.

Service was a little slow, but the food was good. Follow up from the server was almost nil, and the server didn't exactly get the order correct, but since he didn't write anything down, thats to be expected

I ate at Cactus Jack's last weekend while staying at the Margate for a convention, and I had such a fantastic time at this cozy restaurant. The staff was friendly, the food delicious (try the chili, you won't regret it!), and the Tropical Trio drink phenomenal. I'll definitely go there again when I return to Laconia in 2017.

Decided to try this place for dinner during a weeklong stay in the Winnepesaukee area. Nice casual feel and decor with a New Orleans vibe. We started with the bacon wrapped shrimp and jalapeño poppers as appetizers. Both were excellent, especially the bleu cheese sauce with the shrimp. For entrees we had Rajun Cajun haddock tacos, Mahi Mahi tacos, jerk... More

We use to enjoy 'The Southwestern Sampler' then it was stopped, I commented to the waitress, "I guess all good things must come to an end", and she said it was very possible for us to continue getting the sampler since, "they know what's in it!" :-) So we are now able to have those yummy Jamacan Jerk wings, with...

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.
