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

Fat Jacks has the best wings in all of Myrtle Beach. My kids love the teriyaki wings. We also really like the garlic parmesan. It wasn't really crowded until this year so I guess the word got out. They have expanded the dining room which is good but they could use a bigger space eventually. The staff is nice and... More

We are locals and go to Fat Jack's very frequently for their wings. We love their "house" wings there! We usually get the 24 house wings with two sides of fried mushrooms and homemade potato chips. The owners are so very friendly and welcoming, and always speak to us and ask how we are doing and how the food is.... More

great food we got wings and chicken philly's. It was a little pricey for bar food but was really good. They charge extra for sauce like ranch.

The bartender at our hotel recommended Fat Jack's for wings. It is worth the drive from Myrtle Beach to Surfside. We ordered 32 wings and they come out on a platter and liked that we could divide them into 4 different sauces. We were there 3 years ago and they were as good as we remembered. Will we go back?...

After searching for years in this area for great wings I have finally found them!!! In a place you wouldn't expect is this gem. As I looked across the street at the people waiting for who knows how long at Crabby Mikes in 100 degree heat, we walked right in at 5 pm and sat down. Wings were perfect texture,... More
