Our family loves this place, giant fish outside to take pics by. We love their burgers..meat is seasoned. Also have the best seafood, at great price. Sit inside or out on deck under twinkling lights . Great for family or couples.

Found out Bushwackers (Their signature drink) were only $4.00 on Wednesday's so I combined Breakfast with a Bushwacker. Really good breakfast, especially the hashbrowns and biscuit&gravy ,along with eggs and bacon. They give you colored duct tape at main desk so you can write your name and place it where you want. There are 1000's of taped names everywhere! All... More

Went for lunch on a Sunday and the place was packed but the service was wonderful. The shrimp on the grits were small but delicious! The taco salad was very good with plenty of meat. Shrimp wraps & burgers are also tasty and would order again. Relaxing lunch while watching the canal activity!

We won't go back. The food was just okay but overpriced. When we asked for a cocktail sauce the waitress told us how to make it ourselves using the condiments at the table. My sister had food dropped on the back of her new shirt that left a grease stain. My brother in law had sauce on his backside from... More

We were at the Shrimpfest in Gulf Shores And decided to find a place to eat. It was hot so we wanted to eat in the AC so we ended up at Tacky Jacks which is not far from the State Park Campground where we were staying. Nice and relaxing atmosphere on the canal .
