“Great after flight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2011

Arrived from Maui on Monday night at 11:20. They happily served us promptly. Our food was outstanding and cooked with love.
Saw a bad review, but let me tell you, this meal kicked butt on some of the meals we had in Maui.
Well done Cactus Club!

“Average Restaurant w/ Upscale Prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2010

It all depends on what you order, but any way you slice it they are overpriced. Some of their food is very good and some is below par. When you hype a Iron Chef (Rob Feene) and charge Iron Chef prices I expect a great eating experience every time; Cactus Club Cafe cannot offer that.

That's perhaps a little rough. The ambiance is very romantic and at the same time hopping fun. They have very pleasant servers that offer a very eclectic and interesting menu. Unfortunately, the meals are good, but not home runs. Overall, it's better than many restaurants, because of it's variety, but at the same time I can find specific items from the menu at other locations for a lesser price and more tasty.

Their Raincoast Greens (salad) is one of the best tasting salads I've ever had the pleasure of eating and it pairs very well with bar drink "The Brazilian".

I'd recommend going, only because they have such a varied menu and you never know when it might be bases loaded.
