1st time visiting this Tacky Jacks location. We were promptly seated and our waitress was very attentive. We had the shrimp tacos which although a little spicy, were good. Shrimp was tender and delicious. We also tried the fried pork shanks, I wasn't sure about them but they turned out to be quite tasty. Of course we had to have... More

I have a slanted view of this restaurant because I don't like low country fare. I ordered the buffalo shrimp wrap. Way too hot for me. My boyfriend ordered the Philly cheesesteak which was also hot. The French fries were delicious. The ambiance was noteworthy

Fun atmosphere and good bar food. Friendly service, but if you care about healthy choices like we do, this will not be for you.

This is a staple of a beach visit. The breakfast is always just right, with great bloody Mary's and other cocktails. Location is perfect with great views of the water and lunch is also good.

We chose to eat outside and the kids were a little disappointed to not be on the perimeter where they could watch the water but were able to walk upstairs ant watch while we were waiting on our food. No complaints about the food from anyone in the party. I enjoyed the Thursday Taco day having tacos for $2 each... More

My daughter picked this out for her birthday lunch. Food and service were very good. They did bring out a brownie sunday for us to celebrate which was delicious. We had the meatloaf and everyone really liked it. Kids loves the duck tape idea.

My family and I were visiting Orange Beach to ring in the new year. Over the weekend we decided to give Tacky Jacks a shot because we were told about their bushwackers. Which by the way were amazing!!! We ordered this monster garbage for an appetizer (which also was awesome). My daughter had the typical kids chicken, my wife had... More

We tried Tacky Jack's for dinner, and enjoyed the visit. The place seems like a fun place to eat, and it is a festive, loud restaurant on the canal and off the beaten path. The service was fine, and the food was okay as well. To start, we tried the Mexican garbage, which is a huge plate of nachos. With... More
