We visit every time we are in the area. Love the Tacky Shrimp! Good spicy bloody Mary's too. Friendly service.

Surrounded by the Gulf and serving nothing but frozen terrible food from a bag. Four of us had dinner and none of it was fit to eat. Honestly, McDonalds would have been a better meal.

We waited for someone to show up to seat us for 10 minutes. They weren't busy at 3:00pm. Then we waited for another 10 minutes to get a waitress. I had to ask the hostess if we had been forgotten. We shared the large portion of Mexican garbage nachos and had bushwhackers for dessert. Both were very good. The view... More

Heard this from a local but it fit our sch duke, so we went in a Sunday and it was horrible. Very bad service and mgmt didn't care. Usually really good food but our local friend was correct, food was cold and tasteless and waitress didn't care, she spent most of her time in kitchen eating. Our table had a... More

Wish the food was consistent as this is a great place to enjoy in Orange Beach. I will say we have been more satisfied than dissatisfied, just hate the times when we felt it was a complete waste of money. Hope the kitchen gets it's act together. Consistency is the key to a great restaurant.

This was our favorite dinner stop. The atmosphere was very fun and the kids LOVED being able to write on the duct tape and put it somewhere on the building. Great outdoor seating and views of the boats, lots of interesting things to look at, playground and sand for kids, neat options for photos, one of the best souvenir shop... More

Very friendly place and quick to tell you about other places. We had the grouper and the flaky fish sandwich and two Iced Teas. The fish came with french fries and homemade potato chips for dessert I indulged in a dozen oysters on the half shell they were a little gritty but that was from the shocking rather than sand....

Tacky Jack's seems to be set up to cater to big crowds. Quickly get people in and out. As a result the food is nothing special. The atmosphere seems family friendly though it also bills itself as a tavern. A lot of people love the place. We've tried it twice and were not impressed. Our waitress seemed disinterested even though... More

What a nice time we had here. Very fun atmosphere and great place to stop for drinks and lunch or dinner. Large menu to choose from and the staff is friendly. You can access this location by boat via the intercostal waterway.

Thank John M
