Exceptional service!

We had a large group of 6 adults and 11 children. Our server was exceptional. We could have not imagined a better experience.

After a long day at the beach, my family needed to find a restaurant and fast! Tacky Jack's was so big and bright we spotted it from a long way away. It's a super fun atmosphere! Seating is available inside, outside, or at a kid's playground. The staff was mostly friendly, but not overly. The food was very very good!... More

We went for an early dinner today. I had the crab cakes, and my husband had the Ahi tuna Both were very good. The tuna was more rare than mu husband usually likes, but he said it was very good. The crab cakes were also good. Service was excellent. Prices were in like with other restaurants in the area.

Vegetarians. Baked potato super small. Steamed green beans rubbery and obviously frozen. Under impressed.

Another good dinner at a Gulf Shores restaurant. We were seated quickly at an outside table although it was a little confusing on finding the hostess station upstairs. Our waitress was quick to our table, had good recommendations and checked on us regularly. My husband and son had the firecracker shrimp poboy. Husband liked it but son thought it was... More

We just had dinner at Tacky Jacks. I ordered a glass of wine and it was served in a dirty glass. It had women's lipstick on the edge of the glass before I even took a sip. The Mahi tacos were just mediocre. The tortillas were cold and not cooked. My husband's shrimp was just okay. We would recommend a... More

I had the half and half with fried shrimp and grilled fish. I found both good but the fried fish was under seasoned. Servers however were awesome.

Breakfast at Tacky Jacks is good all the way around. Interesting atmosphere--cannot eat until you read are the names on the tapes on all the poles and elsewhere!! Just kidding!! Fun place to pursue and just relax for breakfast. Had a Farmers omelet--very tasty and a lot of food for a medium size. Also has French Toast at our table--yummy,... More

We had an early Sat. dinner celebrating our 36th Anniv. @ Tacky Jacks in Gulf Shores. The location worked that day & we usually like their food. My husband pretty much enjoyed his steak (a bit fatty) & baked potato. I LOVED the Tacky Shrimp with pasta. Was just spicy enough. Served with bread to sop up the juice. Only... More

We prefer the original Tacky Jacks as it has more atmosphere. Great for breakfast and happy hour drinks and appetizers. Right on the bay in Orange Beach
