Appropriately named!

Hubs and I came here for lunch on Sat. after reading good reviews about the food. Upon entering I kinda cringed but we've eaten in down home local places before that needed renovation and some cleaning and have had great food. Was hoping for that experience this time.

Great food and fast service. The beer was cold and the view to die for. Absolutely one of my favorites. J Lewis J Lewis

We had a really tasty late lunch here. We had crab claws and fish tacos and both were really good. You have views of the water and you can take your boat here. Our waitress was so nice and friendly. Would go here again.

Casual, laid back atmosphere. Good family place. Food is casual bar fare. Love the fish tacos. The nacho platter is very good.

We've been traveling to Fort Morgan and Orange Beach for countless summers and always make one or two trips to Tacky Jack's at both locations. The restaurant is fun and the food is exceptionally good and reasonable. My 7 year old grandson ate his first "gator bites" there and now they're always on our order! The staff is friendly, too....

visited TJ's in Gulf Shores. We didn't mind the bingo going on. It was good for bringing in a lot of guests. What we objected to was the inattentive service and mediocre food (at best). We were immediately seated and served. The appetizer came in a timely manner and our order was then taken. We ran out of toast points... More

Generous sized Tacos. Excellent flavor. Quiet time in the winter. OK for a good lunch. You can sit on the patio overlooking the waterway.

Chill atmosphere. Food was great! Took my family, and we enjoyed ourselves. If you get the nachos, you won't need anything else. We didn't eat half of them, but they were soo good!
