“Fun Time & Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

One of the better beach theme restaurants we have visited over the years. Cool atmosphere and good food. They were very busy but the service was still good and our large party all enjoyed the experience. Make this place a must-visit on your Gulf Shores vacation.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

If you want an interesting place to eat this is it. Food is good, nice amount, price isn't bad. Bring your kids and let them play in the sad or read the names on the post. Colorful, fun and nice people!

“Fun place, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

We eat at this location of Tacky Jacks's frequently, as it is a relatively short boat ride from our place. It has pretty good boat parking and a great deck. It is not quite as tourist-trappy as LuLu's across the canal and the food is a lot better. We almost always order the Mexican Garbage (nachos) and a bushwhacker or two. I find the food to be pretty good - I had the shrimp tacos the last time I was there and have also enjoyed their blackened mahi. I am not a fan of their po-boys, but the burgers are pretty good. Overall, it is a fun, colorful place that we enjoy at least once when we are in town. I would classify it as more of a casual lunch place - but I am sure it is fun for dinner too.

“Decent beach style hangout. Good but not exceptional food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Visited with family and enjoyed fried pickle appetizer, Mexican garbage nachos, fried fish platter, and grilled chicken salad. With four drinks the cost was $63.00. The best thing was the Mexican garbage nachos.

Experience was good until waitress abandoned us. After she brought us the bill she never came back. We sat without drinks for 20 minutes before leaving.

“Gator bites!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed Tacky Jacks. Loved the gator bites! They were very good.
We also had the Mexican garbage nachos - they were enormous! Enough to feed several people.
We ate outside on the deck (even though it was rainy). Great view.
Recommend highly.
