We went to Tacky Jack’s in Gulf Shores for a visit with family from out of state. When they come to visit, we try to eat at a different place each time to show them the variety of restaurants available. This was a good choice for their visit this year. They sat us as requested at a large table outside,... More

Great place for a casual meal after a day at the beach or a day spent shopping. The po'boy a are excellent as well as the blue crab claws. In addition, the blackened fish is excellent as well. The servers are happy you came to see them and the atmosphere is fun and festive. Give them a chance, it will... More

I would say if you can share any meal you get with someone. It is HUGE portions!! The fried green tomatoes are excellent! The nachos will feed at least 4 people.

We went there on a very busy day for them and the service was still over the top friendly and attentive. The food was great - I had gumbo and crab legs. We didn't even have to wait long to get our food. Would definitely recommend this place. Good for families too!

Went here with a group of 11. Given a table too small. Asked the waiter if we could add a table (several were open), he didn't think so. Hostess did offer to split us up. The restaurant was out of several things--steak in particular. My food (fried oysters, crab cake and french fries) was cold. Service was slow. Three teen... More

This restaurant offers inside and outside eating. It is a fun place, everyone is given a piece of bright colored duct tape which you sign and stick on the wall. They offer Bingo on Tuesdays and also have karaoke. But the service and food are lacking. The food is way overpriced for the amount given especially in comparison to other... More

Requested a Chicken Taco Salad, which they refused to make, even though they have a Chicken Salad. Makes no sense why they shouln't accomodate such a simple request. Customer Service Fail!

Being a South Alabama native you come to expect a certain level of politeness and friendliness when visiting a supposed local seafood joint. That most certainly was not the case when I visited this restaurant. Although some of the food was edible, and the oysters were of respectable quality; this restaurant simply is not worth the time or money to... More
