First time to Tacky Jack's and we had a sweet server, great food and loved the view. All of our bunch had a really good time. We will return.

Love going to Tacky Jack's. The atmosphere is so laid back and casual and the food is delicious. I tried the Royal Reds this trip and they were amazing! We were able to sit by the water and the view is just beautiful. A tradition for our "sisters weekend" trips.

Made our annual visit to orange beach which always included tacky jacks. Great waitress. Made sure our 4 year old got her food quickly as to keep her happy ! Really neat place off the beaten trail.

The atmosphere was amazing! We loved the setting and the people: however, the food was just decent. BUT, we will definitely go back just for the atmosphere. It was so fun sitting by the water and watching the fish swarm. The lights were beautiful and we LOVED the old structure of the building.

So if you have been to Tacky Jack's in Gulf Shores or on the causeway between Mobile and Fairhope don't let that dissuade you from going to the ORIGINAL. I have been going to the one in OBA for as long as it has been open. It has evolved into an institution. It is not the best seafood, the best... More

I gave my husband the job of choosing a restaurant for dinner, and he choose Tacky Jacks. I was willing to give it a chance. The warning signals went off for me when we pulled up. Not my normal type of restaurant, but I am game for anything, especially good food. We checked in and were told it would be... More

We tried Tacky Jacks and found the food to be very good. The atmosphere is very laid back and rustic/pirate appearance. The staff was helpful. We liked it because we have a very passionate/expressive 2 year old with us. The other children are very laid back. So the music/noise can drown out most temper tantrums / hangry (hungry and angry)... More

Had a couple of singers that we're really pretty good. Nice areas for the kids. We were at the one in gulf shores. The shrimp and grits was excellent.
