We were really looking for a place with some local character and not excessively crowded. We chose Tacky Jack's and went in mid-afternoon. We were seated outside and enjoyed fried pickles and fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. Fish tacos, crab cakes, and (of course imported) crab legs were our entrees - all were delicious! The wait staff was average,... More

I love going to Tacky Jacks - it is a fun place with good food! We have gone several times in the past for breakfast, and it is always delicious. This trip we went for lunch, and we left so full! My husband had the nachos, and they ended up being shared with the whole table - I think it... More

Stopped here for lunch on the way in to town for our annual guy's river/beach trip. Had the fish tacos which I've never had before. They were very good and the in-house sauce for it was good and spicy! The food was good but nothing special that really jumped out at you. Would recommend it for lunch, but probably would... More

We ate at the bar, got a pitcher of beer. Funny, they put a cup of ice (with a top on it) to keep the beer cool. Great place, fun vibe, not he ICW.. we didn't boat, but will do next time!

This was our second visit. Our first was two years ago. We loved it then, but we were not impressed this time. The fish was soggy and service was bad.

Our visit to Gulf Shores included two dinners at Tacky Jack's Grill and Tavern. We were surprised to find the variety of food to select from as well as the quality of the food we received. Not the biggest place, but very busy every time we were there, the people were great, service was super and the food very tasty... More
