We've been coming to Gulf Shores for about 8 years now and last year was the first time we tried Tacky jack's in Orange Beach and had a GREAT time! Sat at the bar waiting for other family members to arrive and had so much fun with the other guests and the bartender. The place was packed and it was... More

Having visited the Fort Morgan Tacky Jacks which we found woefully lacking in atmosphere and service and the Gulf Shores Tacky Jacks which had a wonderful location, great food and outstanding service we decided to try the Orange Beach location. We arrived around 11:00 am on a Sunday morning and were seated immediately. Our server promptly took our drink order.... More

Stopped by for lunch while on business. Great food, I had the Asian Spice Shrimp Poboy and it was wonderful. Good service and atmosphere! Great for families and fun to watch boats out on the water.

We went here with a group of 12 including 6 kids hoping for some fun atmosphere, other than a bunch of pieces of tape on the walls with people's names written on them there wasn't any. We asked the server if he recommended a few of the items, he did not. Definitely appreciated his honesty but this is not a... More

We stopped by for breakfast on July 4th. The food was just ok (Dennys or even Waffle House has better breakfast food.) I can say that our waitress and the mimosas were awesome. So we'll be back......but just for drinks!

We ate at Tacky Jack's in Orange Beach for a quickie lunch. Had the Mexican Garbage nachos last year with crab meat last year but said they couldn't do it this year so had shrimp nachos instead. Waiter failed to mention that it was a $5.00 upcharge (and it doesn't state that in the menu). So, those nachos ended up... More

We went to Tacky Jacks on the peninsula on a Saturday afternoon, around 3 p.m. We were just looking for an afternoon drink after lunch. The bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable about drinks. She also provided great service. The drink she suggested was perfect. We didn't eat there, but their bar drinks were good and well priced. Also, it's... More

This was the worst food we had during our whole week of vacation! It was expensive, cold and tasteless. We told everyone that we met that week, "Don't eat at Tacky Jacks!" I emailed them but got no response which was not surprising. Even the waitress was afraid to come to our table and ask if everything was okay. Our... More

Showed up here at 7:30am on Sunday morning and only a few other people were eating so we were seated immediately. The food was very good with large portions. Great view of the boats coming and going. We eat here every time we come to Orange Beach.
