Don't know what all the fuss is about

When we were here it was packed on a Sunday afternoon. Not a table to be had for anybody walking in. But, we didn't find the food, service or drinks to be anything special. Could do a lot better at any of the other restaurants within a half kilometer of this place.

Not a good experience

We've been here twice. The first time went well. The second time was awful - the service was extremely slow; the food delivery extremely slow (our friend had a plane to catch) and no apologies were offered.

Yearning for a good burger at a place that has been a consistent winner in previous visits to the BC area and close enough to YYC, I decided to stop by this location and ended up ordering the Feenie Burger for my very first time which is a popular item based on just one of the many dishes that is on the CCC menu from the former Iron Chef 2005 winner.

The place for lunch in Calgary near the airport! The duck club sandwich with duck bacon, breast, and Hoisin Sauce on raisin/ walnut bread with yam fries knocks it out of the park! About as trendy as it gets in Calgary for lunch. Don't miss it, 3 locations.

I really like this particular location. Staff are always so friendly and accommodating. My friend and I ordered the teriyaki chicken bowl and quinoa salad to share, and without us even asking they split up the meal in separate dishes for us! How nice of them!!!! For the consideration alone I give them 5 stars. Both items we ordered ordered were awesome. Not too heavy, lots of fresh vegetables.... more

Calamari is well-executed with a solid portion and a few sauces. Flat bread....I think they forgot the "flat" part, as the crust was ~3cm thick...skip it. Main-courses... more

The sliders were nic3 little burgers... the lettuce was like a rag thiugh and the tomatoe was like rope. I had the tenderloin and it was cooked nicely. All around it was a good experience and the food was actually cooked properly. I always say that there is a reason some stores become chains and huge enterprises, and its because they can make a great end product.

The salmon had excellent flavor, perfectly cooked atop a small bed of barley and mushrooms, surrounded in the Dijon sauce.

A romantic evening
August 28, 2013

My husband and I were in Calgary for our 10th Anniversary. It was so nice to cuddle up under the heat lamps outside on the patio. As ways, the Sangria was amazing and the food was delicious. Our waiter Colin was friendly and attentive :) The menu had a large range of options but meals start at about $16 and... more

Still a fan
August 22, 2013

Arrived late in Calgary and ended up eating dinner at the NE Cactus Club at 11pm on a Tuesday night. The decor is modern homey and contains a nice lounge area.
I had the Rob Hunter Chicken - roasted yukon potatoes topped with crisp green beans, a chicken breast and roasted mushrooms with a jus type sauce which I loved!... more

had higher expectation but
August 14, 2013

looked forward to try this one as I liked watching Rob Feenie's cooking show. The place was decorated tastefully. Waitresses are dressed in black stylish clothes. We were there at around 6pm and it was quick busy already (was a Friday evening though).
We ordered short ribs, salmon and wonton soup in duck braised soup. I found the short ribs... more

Very good food and wine
August 10, 2013

went there on saturday 8/10. the food was quite tastey. wine was excellent too.
the wait staff are plastic, though. very predictable sort of "fake chit chat." they all have same outfit and are trying to be pretty women, with their brazillian blowout air, and etc. One telling indication of this is i came in and they asked where i... more

No a/c
August 08, 2013

It was so difficult to enjoy our meals (four of us) because it was SWELTERING inside! The food was very good, service a little slow but we were in no hurry, until the end when (seriously) we were miserable. Our server really didn't know if the A/C was broken or if they had it at all.

Surprisingly great dining
August 05, 2013

Recommended by nearby hotel and it deserved it! Our foursome had no reservation but were seated immediately on the patio. Interesting menu and specialty cocktails, and list of wines and beers. Our waitress was excellent and made excellent suggestions. We liked it so much we returned a week later and once again had a great meal. By chance we had... more

Great Find In the Area
July 30, 2013

After a long flight into Calgary, we decided to spend the night near the airport before heading to Banff National Park. While the area was nice enough, the restaurant options did not look promising. Wow, the Cactus Club was a real surprise. The food, service, and atmosphere were all very good. After a week in the park, staying at the... more

This place has been on our radar for some time to try.
We went in on a Sat at 445pm and it was really busy already. We sat in the lounge, really cool vibe as I was not sure what to expect other than what some reviewers call, a "high end Moxie's". That is about right and the washrooms have to be mentioned as they are really cool!
Our waitress was really sweet but not on her game at all. Very... more

Came here for a business lunch with three others and you can notice the majority male clientele when you enter the place. Servers are dressed in the "business sexy" attire. It's the kind of place that if you like the "friendly" attention by 20 year old girls looking for big fat tips then this is your place! I ordered the seared tuna club with Caesar salad. My salad was very heavy on the garlic... more

In town for 4 days over the weekend of Apr 4. Ate here 3 times and was all because of the service. Was with a group of 12 each time and service was top notch. Stuck with the steaks for meals and were well cooked. They accommodated the sides too without any hassle.
Aside from the sexist remarks, the service was top-notch. No order screw-ups, drinks came quickly and no waiting on food. Lots of... more

I haven't been here in ages and finally went for dinner with a group last night. There were too many "What the..." or "Really?" moments for me to give Cactus Club any more than 3 stars.

Our server told me that the Margaritas on special cost less than $6, so I was deflated when the bill said it was $7.25. I was also expecting a slushy beverage but instead it was served in a highball glass with... more

Excellent food and service. I had the dry rubbed ribs and they were very good! A hot bowl of the won ton soup rounded out my visit and I enjoyed it very much. As seems to be the custom in Calgary restaurants, the lady servers were very appealing to the eye.
