Great bar for drinks, service and a view. We have never been disappointed when seated at the outside bar with the service or quality at any time of the day. Bar food is excellent!! Friendly staff and customers. Seems to be a watering hole for many locals as well.

Rapid service from the staff. They would come by and fill up your glass and it would be another server. Great team work. The food was a little spicy, but, I did enjoy the surroundings.

Wonderful seaside ambiance is about the best to offer. Tableside service was missing.. saw the server to order and pay. Food quality was #7 of 7 places frequented this year. First and last visit. Don't waste time or money.

This is a good place on the water to kick back, enjoy good food and relax.We always try to make one trip to Tacky Jacks when we come to the gulf. One of the best views in Orange beach.

The outside dining was great, but like so many other reviews, the food and service were average at best. We had a burger and the Mexican Garbage Nachos. Both were okay. We were in no hurry and enjoyed the view. Service was inattentive (and I don't view us as high maintenance people) and the table next to us got a... More

Tacky Jacks has the feel of a local hangout. The food was average, but the bar service and location are great. Loved being on the water and the drinks are good.

I really don't have any strong feelings about Tacky Jack's one way or the other. It does have a nice breakfast, but I usually go there for lunch. My husband the shrimp poboy on the last visit and I had a hamburger. The burger was good and so was the poboy. We always go by boat and there is plenty... More

My husband and I stopped here for drinks and appetizers. We have a hard time with stairs but they had an elevator near the handicapped parking. The atmosphere here is one of fun and good food. I would like to come back here for dinner sometime. We had large bushwacker drinks which were very good and along with the drinks,... More

The breakfast burrito was very good as were the cheese grits- but the Bloody Mary's with the pickled beans were the best. Not too spicy but enough to rank high for me. Skip the biscuits and gravy if your grandma ever made them for you-you'll be disappointed. Nice wait staff!

When we went in. We were seated for about 10 minutes. When the waitress finally did arrive, she said we have to move tables for whatever reason - we did. It wasn't until 20 minutes later that I had enough and asked a waitress where our server was. She finally found her and they had words as to who would... More
