Tacky Jacks menu hasn't changed in years. We are locals and occasionally go out for breakfast. Tried Tacky Jack's again last month and the food is OK but not much to choose from. The giant pancake is tired and needs to be re-tired. Service in the morning is pretty sketchy but it improves as the day wears on. I guess... More

Went back to Tacky Jack's about 1/2 hour before sunset instead of breakfast as usual. Had to have their Bushwacker instead of the usual breakfast Bloody Mary.

The views and atmosphere at Tacky Jacks are outstanding! The staff are always a class act and you have to try the firecracker shrimp! I also highly recommend the gift shop, it is full of great gifts. Don't leave Orange Beach without coming for lunch or dinner here!!

I can say that I have sampled every item on the breakfast menu. The shrimp and grits is my "go to", but the farmers omelet is a close second and it is huge. Christian will keep the spirits flowing from the outside bar on the weekend. He makes a great Bloody Mary, screwdriver, or mimosa; and don't forget the signature... More

Service was good but the food was terrible. The best item we tried was the French fries on the kids menu. We had several different entrees and all were extremely salty.

We have eaten here several time about 6 months apart. Both times the service was good, the atmosphere is fun and so nice to be on the water, but the food is just average.
