We ate a Tacky Jack's for breakfast - it was ok. Very limited menu, mostly eggs, bacon & sausage, with a few combinations of each. Atmosphere is nice. Majority of the seating is outdoors and your experience will be weather dependent. Prices were right where they should be, service was average. Nothing to rave about here. Only gripe might be...

While the sea food was good, our waitress was very rude and dismissive. We were treated like we were inconveniencing her by asking for a very simple food allergy need. While the sea food was good, the sides were unseasoned and gave an out-a-can taste. The high price defiantly doesn't match what you get.

What brought us to Tacky Jacks were the Coast360 beach games that offer the free kids meals on Thursdays. We needed a break from paying large checks and a break from the beach. What will keep us coming back to Tacky Jacks is the great food, great service and the fun! It’s like an attraction all its own. My children... More

We sat outside on a huge deck, under a heater, looking out over the waterway, the food was good, the service excellent the prices reasonable. Would return on our next visit to Gulf Shores.

We had visited the Tacky Jacks in Orange Beach several years ago. We totally fell in love with the place, because the staff was so personable and seemed to go out of their way to make sure that we were happy. The food was not especially great but the service made up for all shortcomings. This year we visited the... More

I expected Tacky Jacks to be similar to Lulu's but Lulu's is far better. The waitress was not willing to budge on the menu for the kids - no substitutions or exceptions. Also, the World Cup games were on & the TV was turned to a local high school baseball game. It took the manager 20 minutes to change the... More

We had dinner here. The food was average, price was average - high for the food served , the service was average. I heard the breakfast is good so we will try that next time instead of dinner. Probably won't go back for dinner.

Great blackened fish tacos. Got here early, sat right down, and was taken care of immediately. Will be sure and come back.

We were hoping for a fun experience with good seafood. We had to wait 45 minutes at lunch, and they weren't busy and there were many empty tables. We were one of 2 groups waiting for a table. The waitress wasn't friendly, just short and seemed bothered. Our food was not good. We just assume it's a tourist destination, with... More
