Fun, But Standard Fare

This is your typical waterside eatery like you can find up and down the Gulf Coast. The food is standard fried seafood and burgers with lots of cold beer with which to wash it down. The food was good, the service was summer help and it's noisy at peak times, but those aren't deal killers. You can... read more

My wife and I will probably not go back. We might try it one more time or go try breakfast to be fair. We know places can have bad days. The lunch/dinner menu wasn't great..the food wasn't great..the service just ok.

Well we came here after getting no service at Flippers. It seems like a pretty touristy place. It was clean, food came out fresh. It was kind of pricey. I got the grilled shrimp and they were nothing fancy, pretty much just grilled shrimp. I liked that it came with a few chips along with fries. The waitress wasn't that... More

The wait staff was quick, the atmosphere is interesting, the food was good, but nothing special here. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area for awhile.

Being tourists, of course we had to go to Tacky Jack's and we had a great time. Even though it was a little chilly in early February, we chose to sit outside for the great view. I had a roast beef po' boy and my husband had two tacos. Both were very good. Our waitress was great and took a... More

Fun place with atmosphere. My wife and I had the steamed crab leg pot and added an order of fresh boiled shrimp. Our meal was wonderful and I felt the price was reasonable for a resort area. My wife has Celiac Disease and needs a Gluten Free diet and our waitress was able to make several suggestions.

We go here about once a week while we're here. They have $4 bushwackers on Wednesdays & I think theirs are the best around. We don't eat there very often because I think the prices are very high compared to a few years ago. Food prices everywhere are pretty high any more, but I guess you're paying for the beach... More

Breakfast at Tacky Jack yes! Farmer omelette oh yes. We never miss a breakfast at Tacky Jack's and if you are in Orange Beach it is a must try. We prefer the old one to the new but that is our preference the food is good at both.

We went here for a late evening dessert and coffee break. The waitress was awesome and the food and coffee delicious. We will go back for dinner next time we are in the area. Their gift shop is cute and had some good deals.

After a week at the beach and seafood daily, I had the lunch special at night. The roast beef was very good. It was a surprise as I expected little as this is really a bar with an attached restaurant. Warning:: always ask before ordering seafood here, what type of fish is being served. It may be from overseas.
