I have been several times from breakfast in the morning when there is almost no one there to lunch and dinner at crowded popular times. This is straight forward casual dining made special by the high ceilings, funky decor and smiles if both patrons and staff. Good food, good drinks Recommended

Large rambling place, but once we got in and seated at the bar everything went fine. Stopped in for lunch, very personable bartender, cool laid back atmosphere, and my grouper sandwich was good too!

We paid $85 for lunch for 5 people... The Blackened Mahi Mahi tacos I had were just okay. There was nothing special about our meal. My Rum Runner drink was bitter and barely drinkable. Our waitress was great, but overall, this is just a tourist trap.

5 adults and 2 children had breakfast. Greeted and seated immediately, food was good with everyone trying a variety of meals. I had the eggs and corned beef hash with biscuit and side of grits. Corned beef hash was not made from scratch (which I did not expect) but they know how to cook it with a crunch on one... More

The restaurant itself was very fun and the food was okay. Not bad, but not outstanding for the price. Our kids did love how they got to leave their name on a piece of tape stuck to a wall.

We visited as a family of 4 for an early dinner. The price was a tad pricey, which we did expect. Very cool atmosphere. We sat outside, the kids loved it! Great little area. Very disappointed in a premade hamburger patty, cheese sauce from a jar, and lukewarm food. The waitress brought out a kids shrimp meal instead of chicken... More

I actually liked the food better here than at Lulus. And the atmosphere was good too. We went for lunch and got right in!

The waiting area outside is huge and our two boys loved climbing on the slides. The service was prompt and good. The food was good but nothing blew my socks off. The 1/2 lb burger I had was good wife had a buffalo chicken wrap like I said all good but nothing that stands out. Would come again the waiting... More

The canal front dining was great the service was average as my wife ordered fish tacos with no cheesy..... They came to the table with cheese and server acted as if it were our fault when we sent them back. The quality of food was disappointing after having read the reviews. Go somewhere else, maybe a different tacky jacks?

Let me start off by saying I have yet to place a bad review on a restaurant. We ordered a pound of shrimp. When it was brought to us, even the waitress hesitated on whether or not it was 1/2lb or 1lb. (You can order both but of course she said it was 1lb without asking anyone else!) The shrimp... More
