Great atmosphere!

The atmosphere and wait staff was excellent! Loved getting to eat outside with a water front view. The food was OK, but not amazing. I think this would be more fun for a night out with friends for drinks and good atmosphere.

We went to Tacky Jacks for breakfast before parasailing at Chute for the Sky Parasailing. Dixie was our server and she was great! Very friendly and fun! This place had a wonderful atmosphere. We really enjoyed it!

Stopped in to just grab a quick lunch. We had a marvelous Banana Daiquiri and a very overstuffed fried shrimp sandwich. The service was excellent and our server was super. We were not rushed and throughly enjoyed our meal.. I wish I had taken a picture to share the place with you.

My wife and I were in Orange beach and wanted to eat at a place next to the water. We saw a billboard for this place and decided to check it out. There wasn't very much parking and what parking was there was staggered in different areas and very tight. We were seated right away and the staff was very... More

I would give it a 5 based on food and service but they allow smoking at the bar which is a HUGE turn off when traveling with kids. The service was fantastic and the food was wonderful. Great view and people watching from the boats.

Breakfast was awesome! I had a build your own omelet for 6.99 and it was delicious. It was to much to eat. Waitress was very friendly. Everyone enjoyed their meal. They serve mimosas and things like that for breakfast. I had eaten here previously but not for breakfast, just as good. Will definitely be back!
