It was ok. Nothing special. I had shrimp tacos and they were fine but I probably wouldn't order them again. They were prepared like beef tacos, with lettuce, tomatoes, and cheddar cheese and salsa on the side. I don't have anything negative to say, but it wasn't so great that I would go back. There are to many other really... More

Food was good but a little overpriced after we went to some other places in town. Friendly service and family oriented. Key Lime Pie was excellent!!

Best part of the restaurant? Canal front and small playground for kids. Other than that, it just ok at best. Food was below average. For two TJ burgers, two kid burgers, one regular sweet tea, three kid sweet teas and one order of gator bites, our bill was $70 without tip 😡 Not worth it and won't be back to... More

Slightly expensive but the portions are quite large so it evens out. Food was delicious and the atmosphere is a nice change of pace. Looks like a teenager owns it inside. Recommend trying it out. Will eat there again.

Stopped in between meals for a drink & quick bite. I had the Fruity Pebbles which was an awesome drink. For an appetizer, the gator bites were mouth watering, cooked perfectly with a wonderful dipping sauce. The server also brought a firecracker dipping sauce that was a little hot but very good. The service was great. Everyone was so kind... More

I had the blacken white fish and my wife had shrimp. Both were very good. The fish was a bit milder than I expected, but was very tasty anyway. Recommend this restaurant highly!

We went to Tacky Jack o two different occasions. They were really helpful in helping make our decisions. Our food was delicious. It is for families. It is real reliable on price. I highly recommend going to take jack and lulu's while you are at the beach.

Quality food at reasonable prices. Appetizers delicious and twice the quantity than any of the five top restaurants we tried. We also got to write our names on duct tape and stick it to the wall so every year we return we can see and reflect!
