Cactus Club Cafe

1575 Banks Rd, Kelowna, BC V1X 7Y1

Expect insane prices and small portions as this place is all about providing you a ritzy atmosphere with girls in tight skirts and good looking guys in ties as you gaze out onto the expensive yachts – it is a Yacht Club after all. Service is excellent, however, 13 dollars for a glass of wine makes the whole meal taste sour.

The last time I was at this location the fries were greasy and saltless, but I gave it another chance as this location had always been good, even at 2 in the morning! Ordered a large fries and three cheeseburgers, fries came out hot and perfectly salted, cheeseburgers were warm and sauce was evenly spread. However, if you’re gonna have an ‘Any Lane Anytime’ sign, and you’re gonna crate off one lane, maybe turn it off?

Chipper cheery staff, however the food was horrible. I’m not sure what they’ve mixed into their onions on the buddy burger, but it looked like celery and when eaten, the texture felt like chewing on a dried stalk of buck choy or dried corn stalk.

Sadly however, the quality of the food seems to be declining, room temperature fries are graced with plastic cheese, a bare sprinkling of onions, and the portions have lost at least 6 large waffle fries. Staff are still friendly, however they seem overwhelmed.

Medium prices, with specials every night! Personally, I find their steak sandwich to be more a crouton and steak sandwich, but the quality of the meat almost made up for it. Their beef dip is delicious and french fries tasty! Definitely a hot-spot to hit up for a night out! My friend is lactose intolerant to cheese only, and the kitchen staff were quite gracious in making her a salad perfect for her! And while our lovely waitress was brand new, she did an IMPECCABLE job. Koodos! And while we didn’t stick around for it, trivia night on Mondays looks like a whole lot of fun!

Last year, we froze sitting on top of the Kelly O’s patio, this year, we were toasty warm while still enjoying a beautiful ambiance. The server was admirably gracious in turning down our request to move tables around, explaining that they’ve tried it multiple times, explaining it doesn’t provide any more space. Props for diplomacy!
