I would compare it to a Fudpuckers, more about the atmosphere than the food. I won't be back for dinner. The fire cracker shrimp and fries oysters weren't bad.

It's laid back. Old. Tacky. And fun. Gotta go. Enjoy the view while you eat or have a drink. Lots of fun and a "must-go-to" while in Orange Beach area.

Our children loved the ambience. The crab cakes were delicious. The service was excellent. We will definitely return to this restaurant when we come back to Alabama.

Food was good and overall good environment. The only draw back that I have is that the shirts were a alittle expensive.

We rented a platoon boat for a day and needed some lunch. Tacky Jacks has a pier we could dock to so we decided to give it a try. No one blinked an eye when we showed up at the hostess stand in our swimwear. The food was very good (maybe the best we had our entire trip).

We've been coming to Orange Beach for years and just tried Tacky Jacks for the first time! We arrived just before the dinner rush...outdoor seating was fairly full, but we were seated indoors quickly! My wife had the fried flaky fish and it was very tasty! I had steamed royal reds that were out of this world, they were served... More

We arrived at a very busy time of the evening and was told the wait would be 45 min. We were expecting to wait any place we went @ that time of evening. The wait was less than 30 min. The service was good and the food was great!

The food was OK, but for the price it could've been better. Long wait and uncomfortable setting. It's a neat place to go. If your lucky you can see the dolphin's in the evening time. Must try a bushwhacker!

On the last day of our trip to the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area, we had a big family dinner at Tacky Jack's. We were seated on the patio overlooking the marina; the grandkids loved it (we did too!). There's just something special about having seafood next to the water's edge. The food was terrific and pleased all, even the picky-eating... More

We wanted to try a different place while on vacation and decided on Tacky Jacks. We were told the wait was 20 minutes or so, but wound up being an hour. There were empty tables inside and out, so they either are inefficient or need to hire more waiters. The food itself was good. I had the fried strip and... More
