These are the best wings in myrtle beach. We ask for them extra crispy and they actually do it! No where else will cook them as long as we like even if we tell them too they just won't... They have buckets of ice cold beer and great sides.. We have been eating here for years and years and will... More

Expanded dining area since our last visit 2 years ago. Glad to say the wings are the same though. My favorite place at the beach.

We come to Fat Jacks every time we come to Surfside Beach. The House Wings are the best and the onion curls are great too. We had a platter of 24 wings with 2 appetizers and it was a lot of food. ( If you like fried corn - theirs was some of the best.)

The only thing that is every questionable is the service which based on this most recent... More

The wings are amazing, my family and I shared a platter. The portion size was huge, it could feed a family of four with no worries. The staff was very friendly and service was great.

We love wings. We read reviews about Fat Jacks so we made the trip down from North Myrtle where we were staying. If we hadn't read reviews I'm sure we never would have stopped or even noticed it based on the location/outside appearance. So glad we did! Staff was super friendly and food was excellent. We had to wait much... More

Survived the traffic coming into town on a Saturday so we decided to stop in for a late lunch. There were five adults and one child so we got the large wing platter with two appetizers. The service was great and the wings were it as exactly as advertised. Really good food and will come back again.

We went to Fat Jack's for take-out wings on our first night in Surfside Beach. Their phone message didn't make it clear that they weren't doing take-out so, after a quick discussion, we got everyone to join us to eat in. Their wings are big and juicy, served with lashings of sauce - you can certainly tell which type of... More
