We've been here a number of times. They just renovated this location although I honestly didn't notice any difference in the dining room we were in. However, the corn bread was a nice change and the menu choices were very good. CJ's Trail Nachos appetizer...More

Decided to have lunch here today, as it was Grand Reopening after extensive renovations. A warm, comfortable, southwest decor enhances the experience. We both opted for lunch salads, and either was enough for two! The bacon-wrapped shrimp on my salad were perfectly cooked, and deliciously...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
