Cactus Club has been a favorite for a long time...lunch, dinner and of course drinks. We hit Cactus Club everywhere we see one. Why is it that a nice lunch and beverage at 2 pm feels like a club at 1 am?? Can't hear the server and have to make her repeat herself ...can't converse at our table without yelling...WHY... More

We met family for a catch up lunch at the Cactus Club. Very good food. Service was great and the noise level was minimal which made table conversation enjoyable.

Great place for a family dinner, the steaks were cooked to perfection and glazed with a mushroom sauce. Service was fast and very efficient but not hurried.

The Nanaimo Cactus Club, architecturally, is the nicest of the Cactus Clubs I have visited. The dining room is airy, not too noisy and you don't feel the next table is crowding yours. The hostesses are very pleasant, and orders are taken with appropriate time to peruse menus. The food, regardless of menu choice, has always been well prepared and... More

We are regular visitors to this restaurant. Visited for lunch this week and ordered our usual at the bar. Tuna stack, meatballs and a flatbread to share. This time the tuna stack missed the mark. There was so much soy sauce that it was barely edible. Didn't get a chance to complain as we were never asked how our food... More

Just had a fabulous lunch for 2 on a Sunday. The lady ordered the duck clubhouse and I had the Kobe style meatballs. Plenty of food, rich, well presented and very tasty. The tostadas with the meatballs were incredible. Service was friendly and good as usual.
