Very unique restaurant-almost like dining in a giant treehouse! Very open and spacious, activities dor the kids, and their signature duct tape in the walls (you have to go to see what I mean-great idea). Food was fantastic for the price, service was quick and friendly, and we will definitely go there again!

If you want to sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery while sipping on a bush wackier while eating Royal reds this is your place. Seriously laid back. Menu doesn't disappoint. Try the nachos or the shrimp tacos as well. Plenty of bar choices. Our favorite beach trip stop.

We ate breakfast there and enjoyed it. Went back another day for dinner. We sat outside by the water. Enjoyed watching the boats. Our service was good and we enjoyed out food as well.

Food is so so. Service is hit and miss. Not a bad place for larger parties of 6+ at the beach. Try the calamari!

In the past one of my absolute favorite places to eat in Orange Beach. The atmosphere is the only redeeming factor this time. My oysters were a little wiggy, my shrimp was so salty it was hard to eat, and my wife's fish was almost inedible.

Wednesday night dinner arrived at 7:00 pm the place was busy but seated outside quickly. Had to have a world famous bushwacker or two.. With a dozen oysters on the half shell with a basket of crab claws... Followed by a 12 Oz. Ribeye with baked tater. Delish! Hard to beat tacky Jacks.. We hardly ever miss it when we're... More

The first time to ever try this restaurant and it was so disappointing. Now our waitress was awesome.....very attentive but not overbearing. Very sweet person. But the food was very disappointing. My husband had the shrimp. He said nothing great about it. Just average. I had the shrimp tacos. Same thing....nothing spectacular. Very bland. Tasteless. The chips and hot sauce... More

Nice to hang out but personally the food selection is slim in variety, but good. Hot item I'd Gator Bites.

I got the Po Boy shrimp sandwich, maybe the first one i have ever had. I didn't think it was very good, but maybe i just don't like po boys. Waitress was nice. My wife thought he food was average also, cant remember what she had. Nice view right on the bay but probably won't be back.
