Crunchy grouper was so hard you could not bite it. Terrible service. Would never go back. Place was empty at 4:30 in the afternoon.

Grouper sandwich was good. Many open tables and service was not good. Had to wait on initial service for 10-15 minutes. When dinner was served had to ask for silverware, condiments , etc. It was a Saturday evening and early night entertainment (singer) provided background music, but left early at 7:30.

This casual place features live music and great food. We went on a Friday night, so it was crowded and we had to eat outside on the patio at a picnic table, which wouldn't have been bad, except people were smoking. The food was excellent, though. I recommend the grouper bites basket or the shrimp scampi pasta dish.

After dining next door my friend and I just wanted a cocktail or two. Happy Hour on a Saturday isn't common, but Cactus Jack's has one. We received very pleasant service and had a great view by the dock. Another friend joined with her service dog and she was pleasantly greeted and given water right away. Kudos.

Came here with 2 other friends to eat. I always have a good meal here. I ordered a Pina Colada which was $5 and the Taco salad which I love for $10.00. It is very filling and has a great crust on it. I couldn't even eat it all. The service is good, the other customers are always friendly and... More

We wanted a cool shaded spot to enjoy the view. This place overlooked water and boats. We enjoyed our cocktails, taco salads and hamburger. No complaints everyone was pleased with meal, drinks, service and view.

Stopped in for a quick, late lunch & all 4 of us ordered the burgers which were the special that day. After waiting a long time, the waitress came back to say they ran out of burgers but they sent someone out to get some more. We were dumbfounded & should have stopped her right then, but she turned &... More

The sum of these reviews is on point. Service is painfully slow, atmosphere is awesome, food is edible. The saying holds true for this place " dining on the water doesn't require good food"
