We like to check out eating establishments where the locals hang out. We had been advised to check out the Mexican Garbage Nachos at Tacky Jack's so we did. It is a no frills establishment with lots of personality, good food and service.

Fun place to eat lunch, but on a Saturday in November it wasn't exactly rocking. I had crab cakes and they were pretty good. Very tasty. Wife had fried oysters and she enjoyed them. We got very good service. Like everybody says: the view is beautiful. We'll go back this summer when things are a bit more lively. We've been... More

We went here because everyone said, You have to go to!! Went for breakfast. I wanted to get my shrimp and grits and was pleased but shrimp were small. My husband was pleased with his burrito breakfast, it was large and tasty. Mother in law did not like the "sausage" was more like smoked than breakfast, and father in law... More

Tacky Jack’s Tavern & Grill in Orange Beach has good food and a great view of the bay. The food is fresh and the staff are friendly. You can also arrange for a pontoon boat, Jet Ski and parasail while you are enjoying lunch or dinner

We decided to go to Tacky Jack's because of all the "hype". It's true about the views, they are beautiful! The food is just ok, nothing special. For the amount of money spent, we expected much better. If you do decide to go here I suggest go for drinks & the view.

Good food and cheap drinks with great view while dining outside on the deck watching the fishing boats go by. Kids loved all the birds. Restaurant is now franchised, but originally started in Orange Beach, AL. We ate here for lunch, but they are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and seem to be a favorite with the seasonal locals... More

My most recent visit was via boat. The other reviewers mention of birds and dolphins are quite accurate in that these are common sights here. The salt air is definitely NOT friendly to the barware on the front porch such as the "Coke" fountain machine nor the drink mixing machines...best not to dwell on those.... but the air is refreshing...

Great waitress....yummy food! The scenery is beyond lovely....Wolf Bay..fishing boats heading out..pelicans...assorted birds.Sat outside under covered deck. Still enjoyed the sun while eating. Omelets were delicious. So were the biscuits and gravy. The pancake overflows the full size plate.Get it with pecans. No rush in November to leave...just a few people there in the morning. Enjoyed coffee and talk. Relaxed... More

This is an old favorite to many return visitors to Orange Beach. We usually go for breakfast and eat waffles and eggs. The people who work there are usually very friendly and polite. It's a great place to have afternoon drinks and watch the boats and wildlife in Cotten Bayou. They have a very nice gift store too. We were... More
