It looked fun...but it was kinda dirty in appearance and food was pricy. Oysters on the half shell, 1 pound boiled shrimp and a beer was $40.00! Food was timely and hot. Everyone said their food was good. I was simply unimpressed for $40.00.

We hadn't made it to the grocery shore yet & didn't want to drive all the way to Foley, so we decided to try a local place. This was not a good decision. They don't have a children's menu, so we had to pay $9+ for my 2 year old a pancake (albeit huge, but way more than we needed)... More

We arrived at about 5:00 and found the place to be interesting. It looks like such a fun place, and probably is on a "right night." Last night wasn't so right. We were quickly seated because we said it didn't matter whether we sat outside or inside. The place looks fun and funky and we were pleased by its appearance.... More

Great place for kids to watch for dolphins and the adults to enjoy a cocktail. The fried green tomatoes were a great snack and we had fun walking the docks and enjoying the view after lunch. Win win for everyone. :)

Right on the water and the home of Chute for the Skye parasailing. The space is comfortable in a tacky way (their ad copy, not mine). The drinks are fine - particularly the Patriot, which is a sort of mixed-flavor daiquiri, less so the piña colada, which was bland. The food is typical beach/bar food, but generally well prepared.

Decent food, but awful customer service!! Our waitress could care less about the customer service she provided and was very short and rude to our family. I expected more... Especially from what appeared to be a family friendly restaurant!

We were a party of 8, with 2 kids (10 & 14). The waitress was awful, she acted like she did not enjoy her job. From the start when we asked if we could have 3 separate checks, she was confused by the question. She forgot my drink order & never brought me a drink. My husband had to go... More

The day before our visit we had been out on the Down Under Dolphin Cruise and our guide talked about how the dolphin's fish in front of Tacky Jack's so we headed over for lunch and dolphin watching. We were not disappointed. From waitstaff to food this place is wonderful. The three of us shared Mexican Garbage (a LARGE plate... More
