Sports-bar kinda place. Good wings.

Fat Jacks was exactly what I expected it to be. Comfortable, unpretentious, good (great) service, good food. I was there for a late afternoon snack. Happy Hour specials included a combo with 6 wings, a side (I picked homemade chips) and a soda or beer--just what I was looking for. There are a... read more

Don't let the fact that this place is not located in a traditional restaurant location stop you from eating here. The wings were excellent! This is a place for the entire family. My experience was 100% positive.

Visited here during fall bike week. Was really about the only place around to get chicken wings. Luckily they were pretty good. Nice and meaty and not overly sauced. Good selection of beer with some local beers on tap. Really small and dated but hey,I go places for the food not the decor. Give it a try it's well worth... More

We are always pleased with our service and food at Fat Jacks. Great sauce choices and their blue cheese dressing is awesome!

This place has a huge selection of wing flavors! Plus they have a lot of other great food as well. Make sure you get the Ragin Cajin flavor because they are good. Great place for food and family!

Looked on Yelp for a great wing place while I was visiting Surfside Beach, I ordered the parmesean garlic wings (spicy/hot) is was a little disappointed. They were garlic & parmesean but they gave me hot sause to pour over the wing, I guess that was the spicy part. I've had these same types of wings at other places and... More

The wings are amazing, crispy and saucy. They aren't under cooked. They also have draft beer, which my husband and I love to have with our wings. I highly recommend eating here if you love wings. There are so many flavors to choose from. The prices are average. Overall, it was a great restraunt that served amazing wings and cold... More

These wings are great, many flavors, moist, just a fun thing to eat. Service was great, it's a very busy place but I can see why.

Was told to come here for their wings. They did not disappoint. They have large platters designed to be split up. Very tasty! Very affordable!

We had great wings when we were here last summer, and went there quite a few times. We were really impressed! We went last Sat. and were looking forward to getting our wings. The staff was very friendly, and the service was good, also. But the wings were greasy and tasteless. The blue cheese dressing was strange tasting, and did... More
