Great food, good service and the atmosphere is fun. They have a gift shop downstairs. The kids will enjoy going here also. It is off the beaten path but a hidden jewel.

We visited Tacky Jack's twice. If you like friend food, then it is your place. I don't like all friend stuff. It is a cute place, friendly staff, but not for me. I tried breakfast and one other time, lunch. TOO MUCH FRIED!

This was the best meal of our vacation. We ate lunch at Tacky Jacks. The Alligator tale, shrimp wrap, and "Fruity Pebbles" cocktial were all fabulous. We ate outside overlooking the water, which was great.

We went to Tacky Jacks a couple of days ago. We ordered the Mexican Garbage. I asked the waitress to ask them to put more meat on it because usually it doesn't have much. She brought me a bowl of extra meat. She also charged me $1.50 for it when it should already be on the dish. Everything tasted great... More

We came here for breakfast and dinner and both were excellent! We ate dinner inside and it was very comfortable. I ordered the Steamed royal reds and they were outstanding! You have to eat some Royal Reds while you are in Orange Beach and this was my favorite place to eat them. The butter is messy, so wear your napkin... More

Had one of the best breakfast meals ever at Tack Jack's. You can sit with a view of the boats or not. The food was fast and fantastic. New favorite place to eat for us.

Came here after a day trip to the beach. Place was off the beaten path but not too hard to find. Before you even get in the decor is busy and colorful. Place is expansive. Atmosphere was definitely relaxed. Service was pretty good. Tabitha was friendly. Food was good, nothing to write home about as it is a lot of... More

From the hostess seating us, she was cold, unfriendly and brash. We travel a lot and eat out a lot so to say this was the worst waitress we have ever encountered is an understatement. Food was good, not great. Ribeye was seasoned well and a good cut but way over cooked. Atmosphere and scenery was great but overshadowed by... More

We arrived midday on Monday and were starving when we came upon Tacky Jack's. Maybe it was because we were so hungry but everything was very good. (especially enjoyed the fried pickles) Not sure I would enjoy the place if it was jam packed but it was a great way to spend a Monday afternoon.
