Good food, good prices, fun atmosphere.

Fun place to eat. Kids loved it. Like most places in Orange Beach the prices are a little high, but it was fun and worth it.

What could be better than dinner on the waterfront? Dinner with great prices AND excellent staff! If going to Tacky Jack's, arrive about an hour before you want to eat…. put your name in, then enjoy the sunset views from the top deck or sit on the pier and watch the boats come and go. If traveling with kids, they'll... More

They have a great deck system, most tables have some sort of water view. They have a great beachy bar vibe. Most of the food is standard bar fare. They do have options for those with shellfish allergies.

Let me be frank. Tacky Jack's does not have the best food in Orange Beach. It does not have great water views. What it does have is a fun atmosphere, great service, and decent food. The restaurant seating is upstairs, but there is an elevator. A lot of the tables are tall tables, but we requested one of normal height... More

Probably the best breakfast on the gulf. Great food and sometimes they have live entertainment. We went there on a Sunday morning for breakfast and they had a great songwriter performing there. I believe her name was Ella Reid. Pretty awesome. I have to say the grits rock as well!

Nothing special. Very average bar food. Wooden seats at the high top tables cut off circulation in the legs of three of our party!!! Very uncomfortable and poorly placed footrests. And we aren't big people... Server was business like, but very impressed by the manager who was checking on tables, repairing a swinging door to the restroom and picking up... More

Food was decent but not overly impressive. Eating here is more about atmosphere. We went during the middle of the day so there was no wait. If the weather is questionable you can eat inside. There's a nice deck on top to take in the sights.

we ate here after para sailing and it was better than we expected. My blackened shrimp po boy had a lot of shrimp. The fried oysters were very good and so was the crawfish po boy. There was lots of food and the fries were hot and tasty. Yingling on tap too.

We had dinner at Tacky Jack's. The atmosphere is fun and casual. The food is ok - nothing spectacular but the atmosphere makes up for what is lacking with the food. Perhaps our server was just having a bad night but we had to wait too long for anyone to come over and get our drink order. Then, we had... More
