We ate here last night after a busy day of Ziplining, traveling and checking into our Hotel. We've had a few mediocre meals while on our vacation and I'm happy to say this one was terrific! Our server Gina was friendly, professional and helpful without being intrusive. We didn't even realize we were there during "Happy Hour" so after sharing... More

Did not expect to find this type of place along the shores of Lake Winnepesauke in NH. The Decor has a definite Southwest influence with gorgeous tile topped tables and colorful accents. The menu is decidedly TexMex but has a variety of items to satisfy almost any appetite. My friend and I both chose to try beef entrees. She had... More

Service was a little slow, but the food was good. Follow up from the server was almost nil, and the server didn't exactly get the order correct, but since he didn't write anything down, thats to be expected

Following the success of T-BONES, the first Cactus Jack's opened in 1995 in Manchester. In 2007, the Laconia location became New Hampshire's first dual casual dining concept - with both Cactus Jack's and T-BONES - on Lake Winnipesaukee. While it keeps up the tradition of "homemade" dishes, the look and menu at CJ's has its own style. Attentive servers are always ready to serve guests authentic Southwestern, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and barbecue dishes that are unmatched in New Hampshire.
