Excellent wings, burgers and appetizers. I heard about the place and hoped it wasn't hyped up. It wasn't great food at a reasonable price. We will be back.

If you are a fan of chicken wings, then Fat Jacks is the place for you! The wings are giant! We are fans of buffalo wings, and these are the best! Ice cold mugs with every beer. Great place to watch football. Family friendly too. Service was very good.

We started in and almost tired around and went back out. There was a long hall with a counter at the end and the outside did not look too good either. My husband heard the football game on the TV so there was no going back. The service was fine and the boneless wings and onion rings were terrific. A... More

Die hard wing eaters, and this is a great place! Family atmosphere, friendly service. We would recommend trying one of their wing platters, which come with two appetizers and 3 flavors of wings. It was hard to pick from their many flavors, but we settled on Jamaican Jerk, Texas Gold, and Garlic Parmesan. Then ordered an additional 6 Mild. Each... More

Great wings and several sauces to choose from. The bad thing is the service is terrible! Waited over 45 mins for our wings at lunch time. No refills due to our waitress playing on her phone and ignoring us.

This is on my list of go to places while I'm in Myrtle Beach. I love hot wings and this place is the best! It's a little local dive so don't be turned away by the exterior. They have expanded the restaurant which offers more seating since I was there last time. Mozzarella sticks and fried mushrooms were good but... More

We tried the fried corn and it was very good. We had the wings which were good. I believe 6 wings with no sides was 6.99 and they were on the smaller side. It was very busy so it was loud but we will definitely eat here again

Completely dissatisfied all the way around. We have been before, and didn't enjoy it the first time, but wanted to give it a second try. The staff was not helpful, the food is expensive, the wings do not come with celery, carrots, or even dipping sauce. We had to pay two dollars for a small container of blue cheese for... More

Former owners had this place rocking, now, not so sure. New owners expanded, but costs rose quickly, menu options declined, & if you can understand a Beach Wing place that is closed Mon & Tues, & closes @ 8:30 ( yep!! ) on Friday & Saturdays DURING high season, let me know...Miss the old Fat Jacks Wings...

My wife and I have been eating at Fat Jack's for years. There is no better place on the Grand Strand for wings.
