Some of the best wings in town

We love Fat Jack's and come here often. My family tries to go to non-chain local places and though this is farther from me than the local chain wing place, it's well worth the extra drive. The service is always good, wings are awesome, and the prices reasonable. I like that they have local beer... read more

This place has a following I am sure. Wings are great, they are saucy, and they have a great variety. Typical B rated place in a strip mall, but the wait staff (or ours at least) was superb and super friendly. I would eat here again just for the wings!

This place had the best wings we could find in the surfside beach area. the only thing is that they open late in the afternoon so not a lunch place.

A few of us were told to check this place out for their wings. If you like VERY saucy wings then this is your place. Some of us had to wipe sauce off before we could eat them. The teriyaki and ragin Cajun were the two flavor so we ordered. The staff couldn't have been nicer and the place was... More

We come here every year on spring vacation, from New York. The selection of sauces and flavors gives everyone something they will like. We often get a 50 wing platter we with several choices on it. Very friendly staff and a newly expanded and remodeled dining room makes it even nicer. Recommend this highly!

The wings are perfectly fried and there are a ton of sauces. I liked the garlic Parm, my husband prefers the sesame, my mom liked the raging Cajun, and my brother was all about the monthly special that had habaneros and mango. We also had a kids grilled cheese, a chicken Parm sub, and a philly and all were very... More

Best wings I've had at the beach. Nice and crispy (no slimy skin) and many great flavors. Nice staff. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because the menu is very limited and there is NOTHING healthy on the menu; but if you want wings...this is definitely the place to go!

We found Fat Jack's in our condo "restaurant" guides during our recent visit to Myrtle. We really just needed a night in and didn't want pizza. We are so happy we found this place - we had really awesome wings and apps that we ordered in. A quick run up the street to get them we were eating and full... More

Have been coming here for years...wings are the best. The food has always been consistently good. The wings are a good size also.
