We were looking for a layed back place to eat and hang out a little bit on a deck. This was just great place! We actually ate here twice during one vacation. Our waitresses were great. The food was awesome. The deck and atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for.

I'll be honest: I don't get it. The view is nice, the nachos are really expensive. Like $21 including tax and tip expensive, and too massive to eat in one sitting. We came in for an afternoon bite to hold us over until dinner and opted for the Mexican Garbage Nachos because we saw them on another table. Holy moley,... More

The atmosphere is lively and fun, but the food is typical of many large or chain restaurants - nothing really special. Some food items were good, such as the firecracker shrimp, but other items lacked effort, such as nacho cheese on a Philly cheese steak sandwich.

We went in for lunch and were seated immediately by a very friendly hostess. It was pretty early, so they weren't crowded at all. We were a little tired of seafood at this point on our vacation so we opted for the mexican garbage (the biggest nachos I've ever seen) and the chicken fingers. The mexican garbage was absolutely delicious!... More

I went to Tacky Jack's for the first time today expecting good things. I left feeling let down. We didn't visit the bar, so this review only pertains to the restaurant. I ordered the shrimp and grits and the best I can say is that they were "ok". The menu said it came with steamed vegetables. When the food arrived,... More

nice atmosphere. I loved the outdoor dining. They had huge ceiling fans so pleasant even in early August. I tried 2 different entrees there, both very good.

They have taken the Monte Crisco off the menu!! Nooooo!!! That was my favorite item. Their burgers are always good. And we all love that Mexican Garbage. :)

We really enjoyed the garbage nachos at Tacky Jacks.. My kids enjoyed playing in the playground sand area. While my husband and I listened to the live music. The Resturant was crowded but the wait was still short for our table.

Cool atmosphere and amazing view of the water (the TJ's in OB). The Mexican Garbage Nachos are REALLY freaking good! They have a great selection of "non" seafood items. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Gulf Shores!
