“Neat breakfast experience.”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

We ate breakfast here after seeing a write up in a local paper. They are supposedly known for the farmer's omelet, but it had a couple ingredients that I could not eat, and they can not leave anyhing out because it's pre-mixed so I ordered a "build your own" omelet. My wife ordered the french toast. Both were very good. We ate outdoors on the pier, which was a good experience. Our service was good and friendly, and the experience was a good one. This place is huge and has much more than just a restaurant. We enjoyed the breakfast experience.

Typical bar food and typical tropical touristy drinks.
Liked that we could go in our boat,
No complaints, just saying this is what it is.

“Its a must”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Great atmosphere. Fun relaxed. Helpful staff. This is not a 5 star restaurant but most fun you will have.We make the trip to Orange Beach at least three times a year. Always go to Tacky Jacks. Friends or family or both will have a great time. Only issue is that keep displaying pictures of Obama visiting. I detest him and suspect the vast majority of their patrons do as well. I gripe about it every time but pix still there. As for special occasions, if you are looking for fun such as birthday or similar , this would be a great choice. If looking for formal setting like big anniversary or romantic celebration, this is not the place.

“Good food, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We went here for lunch on a Saturday. We wanted to sit outside but it was too windy that day. Good food, great drinks and atmosphere! Great place to go with friends. Looking forward to going back again and sitting outside in warmer weather!

“Good Breakfast, Bushwhackers & Nice View”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Tried this location for breakfast for the first time, Mid-week, mid-morning, 2 in our party, ordered BLT, hasbrowns, eggs and corned beef hash, mimosa and a bushwhacker. The bushwhacker was excellent & soon became a second drink, mimosa was good. BLT & hashbrowns were good, nothing special but exactly as ordered. Corned beef was excellent - cooked good & crispy but not burnt. Very warm morning, sat outside, waitress offered to let us move when the sun got very hot. Very good service. Very nice view of bay & docks from outdoor tables.
