Fun little place

Went during the week for dinner when it wasn't so busy. Food was good, service was good. No complaints.

My husband and I were on vacation in Gulf Shores so we decided to try this place. It was very confusing trying to find the host/hostess, as you have to go upstairs and up a ramp and into the main restaurant to find her/him. We were lucky and found her on the first try. Lol. We sat outside and our... More

The food and service very good. Not really exceptional but very good. The atmosphere is fun and people of all ages enjoying their visits. Although they have many seafood selections, the hamburgers are are favorite for this restaurant. Views ok.

We love Tacky Jacks! We eat here every time we come to Gulf Shores. The atmosphere is great, however, it was really hot inside this time when we went. Almost unbearably hot. The service is always great as well as the food.

We brought 3 children, ages 3, 5 and 7 for the games the staff there hosts. The entire family had a blast! Mom And Dad ended up joining in the games too. Water balloon dodge ball. The girls even brought home the ideas for some of the games to play with their friends. After each round of games, the kids... More

The original Tacky Jacks--very rustic and not fancy. Shrimp & grits were great! 1/2 & 1/2 with grilled shrimp & fried oysters were delicious.

Enjoyed the casual atmosphere overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. Had seats near the bar by a window. We had Gator Bites appetizer, my wife had the Half & Half Combo Fish & Shrimp, and I enjoyed the Half & Half Combo Oysters & Blackened Shrimp. The service was excellent.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all good at Tacky Jack's. It's really nice to sit out by the water. Mexican garbage is something you have to try, as well as a Bushwhacker. My favorite is fish tacos. There's oyster bakes and live music some nights, as well.

Great place. Our opinion this location has slightly better food than the Orange Beach location. However, the Orange Beach location has a better "ambiance" / view. Be careful.... tourist season brings long waits to this place. Plan ahead.

Stopped by for appetizer and drinks one afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere was relaxing and casual. The food was good and arrived in a timely manner. The staff was friendly and efficient. The bushwackers were so good that we stopped by the next day just to get one.
