Two really good lunch / brunches. Jambalaya and the Modern salad. The serving staff not so good on the lactose free thing but c'est la vie.

This restaurant is busy at lunch. It was hard to get a seat. The menu is very small, but the food quality is very high. The portions aren't massive, but enough that you don't leave hungry.

Hard to talk as it is very noisy. Food is good "fast food" like a pub. Very crowded especially with kids.

This is a favourite spot for our group of women to gather for a night out and enjoy each other's company with some delicious food from the many choices on the menu, great drinks whether just a glass of wine or maybe a cocktail. It books up very fast and is hard to get into without a reservation although they... More

Absolutely nailed it with the 3 to 6 Happy hour offerings and repeating it after 9 pm. The $3 chicken sliders are fantastic. I loved the Perfect storm. Incredible drink ...please bring it back to Happy Hour. But the new blood orange margaritas ...well done.

We generally go to Cactus Club restaurants when we are in the mood to go out, which is less and less it seems as if disappointment is more the rule than the exception these days with restaurants, unless one goes to the best ones.

On a recent trip to the general area, we decided to drop in for dinner, since the corporate head chef is Rob Feeney, a phenomenal chef To be fair, we arrived on a Friday night and of the customers were in party spirits and we were looking for a quiet meal. The place was loud. Service was excellent and our... More
