This is a great place to eat and take the kids. Their nachos are HUGE. My favorite is the flaky fish. Full bar.

Waitress was nice. Breakfast menu was a la carte and WAY over priced. My children's Belgium waffles were $8.99 a piece and came with NO sides. My French toast had no flavor. Bacon was tasty. My husband didn't finish his no flavor shrimp omelette. $65 for breakfast is crazy. Eat at Another Broken Egg or Brick & Spoon for a... More

There are multiple locations of this restaurant. All of them are waterfront, which makes them great. Always have a great time dining here with friends and family

We really enjoyed our dinner at Tacky Jack's. We got there around 6 and only had about a 10 minute wait. We sat outside and it felt great. Plenty of fans and area around to sit. Activities as well outside for the kids while you wait. Live music was ok but I'm sure is better sometimes. Food was fantastic and... More

Tacky Jacks is one of my favorite stops when we are in Gulf Shores. It is very casual dining, there is a large outdoor dining area, with activities for the kids before or after you eat. Food is always good-seafood, burgers, fish tacos, etc..a relaxing beachy place to dine.

The atmosphere is family oriented and relaxed but the food didn't meet my expectations. The overall customer service is outstanding so I would return but only order the Mexican Garbage.

I'm a shrimp lover and the grilled shrimp was great. Would be nice if you had options for sides as I am not a fan of french fries. Husband had wings and loved them. Kids ate the big nachos and loved them as well.

We had to wait which we expected and was fine. Kids played on playground and shopped in big gift shop. We were here or last night of vacation. We had alligator bites for an appetizer. Food was ok but not as tasty as bill would suggest. However, service was great and compared to Tacky Jack's 2 this was superb.

We enjoyed Tacky Jacks much more than LuLu's and it was half the wait (but still a wait). The atmosphere was great, especially for our kids and we were all pleased with our food! We will visit again!

Tacky Jacks food is better than LuLu's, but this is a tourist trap. We go once a trip because of our kids. Not bad food, but not the best seafood we have ever had either.
