Another disappointing experience at this joint. CJ's is going downhill fast. This time on top of the usual poor service, I requested Tabasco sauce and I received a watered down bottle. You know, like you do at home when you reach the end of the...More

Description
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
