The Mexican Garbage Nachos platter was absolutely fantastic. We had a part of 11 and two platters were plenty to spare, they are great! Then some had Cheeseburgers, Others Gumbo and others Fish Taco's and everyone was delighted with the quality and quantity of food as well as the great friendly and fast service. I would recommend it as a... More

Today we ate at Tacky Jacks. The fish and shrimp were as fresh as we get at home and the service was great. It's moderately priced and I highly... More

Good food and service. Colorful with lots of interesting things to look at. It does have steps. Did not see the elevator, but sure it was there.

Service was below par, and the restaurant wasn't busy for lunch service. All four of my family members would have rather ate at McDonald's. Food is fried and greasy, with a bland taste. There are much better establishments for the price. #SkipIt

We stopped in for breakfast on our way out of town the breakfast was awesome but the Bushwackers are still the best on the beach. The food is reasonably priced and very good the service was excellent . So if you are in the Gulf Shores Orange Beach area absolutely stop and get a bushwacker at tacky jacks
