Fresh foods, excellent service, lake location
T-bones and Cactus Jack’s are two restaurants located in Laconia, New Hampshire right on the lake. They are part of a small chain of 7 restaurants in the New Hampshire area. T-Bones is American foods while Cactus jack’s provides more of an Old-West inspired menu. Both restaurants advertise meals made from scratch with fresh ingredients. We ate lunch recently at T-bones and found the advertising to be true.
We got to the restaurant around 1:30pm on a Tuesday and expected to wait. However, we were warmly greeted by the hostess and seated promptly .If the kids did have to wait there were mini Etch-a-Sketches to keep them busy. If you choose to eat at Cactus Jack’s it is located down the stairs.
At our table we received our menus and were introduced to our great server Connor .He was so attentive that even when my son forgot his prized Hartford Whalers hat at the table, he ran it out to our car when were leaving. He brought out our drinks very quickly and served us some warm and tasty bread. The kids got fancy virgin drinks. We had to put a stop to the bread or we would have never eaten our meal. Both the adult and children’s menus were very extensive and took some mulling over, but we chose well. T-Bones has been voted the best burger in the area for the past 5 years. My husband had the Garbage Burger and found out why. He loved it. I had the veggie burger which was also loaded. The kids ordered from the children’s menu which had more than the usual kid entrees. My daughter ordered the sirloin tips, my son the ribs and my little one the requisite pasta. What we found nice about the children’s entrees was the addition of a large portion of grilled veggies including summer squash, zucchini and broccoli. The adults were served these as well, but the kids also got a thoughtful wet-nap and a big cookie!!!!
Our service was quick and efficient. We really enjoyed our meal and took the time to tell the server and manager, who was readily available and speaking to other tables. We would happily go back and enjoy another meal…maybe outside by the lake this time!!!!
This review is based on complimentary lunch at T-Bones. I received no other compensation beside the meals for our family and the restaurant did not state any requirements that I express a particular point of view.
