The food is very good and the service is great! I had the butternut squash with ravioli and it has great flavor. We were visiting Calgary and this was our first meal. Was not disappointed! Food is moderately priced.

I have never been disappointed by Cactus Club! Their lettuce wrapped spicy chicken is fabulous. As is the short rib sandwich. No visit is complete without a side order of truffle fries! A great place with consistently good food and excellent service.

Great food, great people, and great service. This is a great spot for lunch. You can be in and out quickly, or relax and have a business meeting. I like the rib tip sandwich personally, but everything I have eaten here has been awesome!

I've been to the cactus club a couple of times and go back at every chance. The food is amazing and I highly recommend the butternut squash ravioli. Just be warned that the waitress might be pleasantly distracting.More

The Staff, foods and drinks of this restaurant/bar/club are equally amazing. I stayed in a hotel just a few steps from Cactus, and it was actually a very good choice. I highly recommend.
