There will be something on the menu for everyone. The prices are reasonable. The staff is friendly. The view is a great panorama of the waterfront. It's a bit too much like chain food (because it's part of a chain) if you're looking for a...More

I've been a regular at Cactus. Sometimes visits are better than others. Tonight the food was very good, the service was good. Very good guacamole and margarita's. It was just a little to cool to sit outside tonight at 9pm

This Cactus restaurant is directly across from the waterfront so after eating a hearty meal, you can walk off those calories. We have eaten there many times and never been disappointed but I have to admit that I usually get the Sonoran spa chicken.

Went in here just to get a beer & chips & salsa after having walked 7 miles on Alki. Probably some of the best chips & salsa we've had in Seattle. Waiter was a little slow. But will go back to try some of their...More
