“Food, ambiance is fine...”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We've been here several times and we like the food and the view from outside on the deck overlooking the hills and countryside whatever the season. What we don't like is the service--we talked about this the other night. Since we've been at least a couple of dozen times over the past six or seven years and have come from 40 miles away to do so, we feel this is not a one-time impression.
The servers tend to be too impatient and forgetful. Of course, it's not every time, but over the past several years, it seems this way--forgetting a drink, an appetizer, the bread, whatever. Unapologetic and young--maybe that's the reason. We aren't old, but it also obvious that the Cactus Grill is aiming for a younger crowd because the entertainment is extraordinarily loud when we come and there is a band or entertainer. Sitting outside, one would not think it mattered, but it does. When you have to shout at the waitstaff to be heard, that's too loud.
We understand why, of course, but it has meant that we have probably crossed off this lovely place with its rustic charm simply because you can't please everyone--and we don't seem to be in the age bracket they care to please. I'm sorry about this and maybe we'll come back on a weekday afternoon when things are more peaceful. Birdsong beats band every time.

“Very good for an out-of-the-way place”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

My husband and I had a great meal at Cactus Grill last Friday night on our way home from the Ottsville Farmer's Market. For those who may think this is a Mexican restaurant because of the name, think again, it's not! But it is great American comfort food. I had the BBQ half chicken and hubby had the strip steak with onion rings. The live band sang classic rock from the early 1960's and added to the quaint ambiance. I agree with other reviewers that the rest rooms downstairs could be a bit nicer, but you can tell it's an old building. The food is good enough for a return visit.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We went on a slow Wednesday night - the service was great and the food was excellent! This place has a nice cozy atmosphere and the whole family pleasantly surprised with how enjoyable our meals were. We would definitely go here again...and would love to see the outside seating.

“Awful!!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Went for lunch recently and won't be going back. Place is really dirty and some of the food is out of a box. Bathrooms are GROSS!!!!!!!!!!!! and should be condemned. In the men's bathroom there is a wooden partition seperating the urinal from the sink and it is full of mould. Cobwebs are hanging from the ceiling and there is Graffiti on the walls. Bathroom is really filthy and is right outside the kitchen. My wife said the ladies bathrooms were just as bad.
