Warm atmosphere, fast friendly service, the food is fabulous! Prices are great, portions will amaze you, I love the shrimp, but they also have a great flounder sandwich... The new owners Kathi & Rich Hill have done wonders with the place and continue to make improvements all the time... Can't say enough about the bartenders! wonderful people each & everyone... More

We took a chance on this restaurant, knowing nothing about it. The atmosphere is tex mex meets country meets honky tonk. The food was outstanding. We ordered a loaded baked potato soup and followed by two excellent hamburgers. The meat was fresh and hand formed in patties and grilled. Awesome flavor on a Kaiser roll. Take a chance it will...

The food is delicious, and the service is very friendly. Everyone is talking about the nachos! But the steaks...you need the steaks. There's live bands, karaoke, and acoustic talent nearly every night of the week! Great prices, too! You really should bring your groups here. Plenty of room! There's a separate lounge area with a bar for smoking, so non-smokers... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. I have been there three times now, and each time the food has been absolutely delicious and the live music was extremely entertaining and well-received by the crowd. Whenever I have a night of freedom, Cactus is definitely always on my list of places to eat!

Atmosphere is pure country with barrel tables and general decor. They did have a lot of bands scheduled to play for the month of November. Food was typical of area, sandwiches (great Tomato Bisque!) and they even had Perogies as a special the day we went. Food prices were totally reasonable. The menu listed for the restaurant/saloon in Restaurant.com is... More

This is a bar that serves pretty good food (except for the crabcakes). The crabdip appetizer was very good and my steak was very good. Hubs crabcakes seemed to be minus crab :( The atmosphere is totally old bar and smells like it too :( Staff was friendly and accommodating and service was very good. I would go back and... More

The Cactus keeps re-inventing itself, and I want to support that! I want you to be better! But---sadly--it's still a beer joint, and I would not take my mother there. It smells of beer--and it's dark---and the menu is for beer-drinkers. I'm so sorry not to be more supportive--and i want to be supportive! The parking lot is packed at... More

My husband and I went to Cactus last night for the first time since moving to Yorktown. We were pleasantly surprised and had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious. We both had the chicken from the entrée section in addition to the spud boat appetizer. The music was fantastic, the waitstaff was exceptionally friendly and everything was very clean.... More
