We sat on the deck just before sunset...beautiful view and delicious food too. Service was excellent, esp since it was busy. But service was fast and food was delish. Would go again next time i'm there.

My wife and I really enjoyed Tack Jack's! We were hungry after a busy morning and early afternoon so we ordered two appetizers -- the gator bites and the fried green tomatoes. Both were excellent! The gator bites were tender and juicy and, yes, tasted like chicken, albeit a very hearty chicken! The fried green tomatoes were excellent. They were... More

Always enjoyable. They have a variety of fish plates and burgers. Love it outside when the weather permits. Just dining on the water puts you in that "I'm on vacation" mood !!

Wonderful open air restaurant with an air conditioned bar area. Great fresh fish - not like Cobalt across the bay! Everything tasted great for all 8 of us. Reasonable cost.

It was a long wait to be seated. The food was just ok. Other places in Orange Beach I prefer. Service was good. Prices comparable. They do have a small outdoor play area for kids which did help entertain our little ones while we waited.

Food was good atmosphere beachy. You can sit inside or out but outside seating is premium and you may have to wait. Garbage nachos are good but the fried green tomatoes fries where a bit of a let down.

Great food, best bush wackers on the beach! Had to wait an hour to eat, but there is so much to do and look at that it went by very fast!
