It's more like a sports bar! They have an enclosed terrace in the back! It was very humid so we sat in the back. We weren't even there 5mins, the waitress was very pushy about ordering.... I had the salmon...it was fine, it's Mexican cuisine...More

We love going to CJs, food is always delicious and so are the drinks. The menu is huge and has something for everyone. They have a nice outdoor patio too for nice days. We would highly recommend this place!

Food and service is fantastic. We live out of state and try to make a special trip once or twice a year.

Good service for a table of 6, including a child. The food was ok, but not fabulous. OK family place. I live in Mexico part of the year, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

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
