It was a fun place to go with friends. The Glass Cactus had a live band that played 70's and 80's music. It was not too crowded but it was hard to find a table. The drinks were decent and priced fairly.

Went here for a business networking activity. The drinks were great, the appetizers yummy. The dance floor and sound system were outstanding. I sat outside for a good while on the patio overlooking Grapevine Lake and enjoyed talking with colleagues over a drink.

Cheesy bands at times, but still a lot of fun! Would go back there again. Drinks are watered down, but you'll be thankful at the end of the night when you're not hung over.

The service was excellent and the food was pretty good. Nice place to party if you're with friends or just want to be out with others in a nightspot setting. Nice location on the waterway.

The Glass Cactus is a great place to grab drinks after a long day at the Gaylord Texan. We went here on a Friday evening and loved hanging out on the patio. The band was not our style, but the DJ that played on the band's breaks was great! We also had a private event on a Saturday evening. We... More
