We went here because everyone said, You have to go to!! Went for breakfast. I wanted to get my shrimp and grits and was pleased but shrimp were small. My husband was pleased with his burrito breakfast, it was large and tasty. Mother in law did not like the "sausage" was more like smoked than breakfast, and father in law... More

Tacky Jack’s Tavern & Grill in Orange Beach has good food and a great view of the bay. The food is fresh and the staff are friendly. You can also arrange for a pontoon boat, Jet Ski and parasail while you are enjoying lunch or dinner

We decided to go to Tacky Jack's because of all the "hype". It's true about the views, they are beautiful! The food is just ok, nothing special. For the amount of money spent, we expected much better. If you do decide to go here I suggest go for drinks & the view.

Good food and cheap drinks with great view while dining outside on the deck watching the fishing boats go by. Kids loved all the birds. Restaurant is now franchised, but originally started in Orange Beach, AL. We ate here for lunch, but they are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and seem to be a favorite with the seasonal locals... More

My most recent visit was via boat. The other reviewers mention of birds and dolphins are quite accurate in that these are common sights here. The salt air is definitely NOT friendly to the barware on the front porch such as the "Coke" fountain machine nor the drink mixing machines...best not to dwell on those.... but the air is refreshing...

Great waitress....yummy food! The scenery is beyond lovely....Wolf Bay..fishing boats heading out..pelicans...assorted birds.Sat outside under covered deck. Still enjoyed the sun while eating. Omelets were delicious. So were the biscuits and gravy. The pancake overflows the full size plate.Get it with pecans. No rush in November to leave...just a few people there in the morning. Enjoyed coffee and talk. Relaxed... More

This is an old favorite to many return visitors to Orange Beach. We usually go for breakfast and eat waffles and eggs. The people who work there are usually very friendly and polite. It's a great place to have afternoon drinks and watch the boats and wildlife in Cotten Bayou. They have a very nice gift store too. We were... More

First morning in Gulf Shores, we hadn't shopped for groceries yet, so decided to have breakfast and then go shopping, and chose Tacky Jacks from list of breakfast places on Trip Advisor. A little tricky to find as it is amongst residences, but we found it ok. I had poached eggs on corned beef hash, which was really outstanding. They... More

My two kids each got the grilled cheese kid's meal for 6.99 and a kid's drink 1.99. (It doesn't come with a drink so that's extra $). My husband and I got a shrimp and an oyster poboy and 2 diet cokes. Our total with a 15 percent tip was $62. That's ridiculous for average food and service at lunch!

Been there before! Very good on the water restaurant. Fried Shrimp is the best. Also had fried green tomatoes. Nothing fancy, but that's fun. They have lots of outside seating too. Inside can get quite noisy, but we didn't mind. Last time we were there our friend won a lobster in an arcade machine and they cooked it for us!... More
