This is a staple of a beach visit. The breakfast is always just right, with great bloody Mary's and other cocktails. Location is perfect with great views of the water and lunch is also good.

We chose to eat outside and the kids were a little disappointed to not be on the perimeter where they could watch the water but were able to walk upstairs ant watch while we were waiting on our food. No complaints about the food from anyone in the party. I enjoyed the Thursday Taco day having tacos for $2 each... More

My daughter picked this out for her birthday lunch. Food and service were very good. They did bring out a brownie sunday for us to celebrate which was delicious. We had the meatloaf and everyone really liked it. Kids loves the duck tape idea.

My family and I were visiting Orange Beach to ring in the new year. Over the weekend we decided to give Tacky Jacks a shot because we were told about their bushwackers. Which by the way were amazing!!! We ordered this monster garbage for an appetizer (which also was awesome). My daughter had the typical kids chicken, my wife had... More

We tried Tacky Jack's for dinner, and enjoyed the visit. The place seems like a fun place to eat, and it is a festive, loud restaurant on the canal and off the beaten path. The service was fine, and the food was okay as well. To start, we tried the Mexican garbage, which is a huge plate of nachos. With... More

Great location on the intercostal waterway. Wonderful views of the waterway, boats, birds, beautiful sunset, and a very friendly fat cat. The service was quick and friendly. The waitress brought my wife another drink she had ordered and another drink for me which I had not ordered. I decided to accept the drink anyway. When she brought the bill, the... More

Ordered seared tuna and it was not the best. Asked our waiter for additional dipping sauce and he forgot to bring it. The setting was nice as it sits on the intercoastal waterway.

Our first visit for breakfast. Excellent food for a reasonable price. Portion size was great for a hearty appetite. Service was excellent and no waiting in line. Will definitely go there again.
