We go to Fat Jacks almost every time we come to MB (which is a lot) and I'm not a huge wing fan but this place is amazing! Large wings, lots of unique flavors (medium/teriyaki and garlic parmesan!!!) and always have awesome beer specials. Their hot potato chips are my favorite!! You get so much food for a great price and I've never encountered a rude person there. Must go for wing lovers! And everyone else.

We went to Fat Jacks this summer and was disappointed when Michelle was not there. They said she went to Drunken Jacks so we went there. A great find for Drunken Jacks a great lose for Fat Jacks. JD

I have been visiting Myrtle since a child. Needless to say I have eaten at numerous restaurants and a few have become tradition to me over the years (Filling Station, Chuck's, Burro Loco, River City, Sam's Corner, Pig n Chicken) and I am proud to say that Fat Jack's has become my family's must visit destination when we visit. We love wings and this is the place to get them. Excellent food and just and awesome place to chill out with the family with the laid back attitude and the great wait staff. Even great for the non- wing eaters and vegetarians as well. Wish we had one at home.

The best wings in the area- hands down! I have taken many friends and family here when they come to visit the beach and have never had a complaint. Love the people and the atmosphere. The hot wings and house wings are my favorite but you should also try the chalupa. It has grilled chicken with homeade salsa - delish!

My husband and I recently ate here because we had a craving for chicken wings. We are originally from the Buffalo area so we know good wings. Well you won't find them here!!! The bar maid was lazy and not particluarly friendly and I should say the same about the owner. That wouldn't have bothered me if the food was good but it was horrible. There was so much pepper in the bleu cheese dressing that it was unedible. The celery was also unedible. The wings arrived in a lake of hot sauce and to top it off I found a hair on my plate after having eaten most of my meal. This is not the place to get good food or good service. We won't return and will tell all of our friends. I have had some bad chicken wings in my day but these were by far the worst!!! Don't waste your money here!!!

Fat Jack's was one of my regular places to eat when I was stationed in M.B. back in 1989. I so glad to see they're still going strong. Sure wish I could get back there but live in Texas now. You guys have the best garlic and butter wings I ever tasted! Pretty sure some things have changed, but still the best wings on the beach. Keep the wings coming Fat Jack's.

Best wings in town. No one compares! Burgers are good as well. Service is great. When you are here-you feel like family. If you come back again, owners and wait staff remember you. Everyone is very friendly. Good food, good beer, good time.

Once you eat here, you'll compare every other wings place to it. It's a great little hole-in-the-wall place that fills up fast on the weekends. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and family oriented. The servers are full of personality and I dare you not to cut up with them.

I used to live at the beach and moved out to the west coast. I can't visit the area without going here at least once to chill out with friends. Oh, and I suggest the garlic-parms and a pitcher of beer (served with frosty cold mugs of course).

We arrived at 4:30 on a Friday. Walked in, sat down and had out food within 15 minutes. We had a platter with 5 of the 15 flavors of wings. Michelle, our waitress, was friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding--large, perfectly cooked, crispy wings. The favorites among our group were the garlic-parmesan and the "house wings". We look forward to coming back next year on our annual vacation! Thanks for a great meal!

We have been going here for over 10 years. We travel from St. Louis, MO to Surfside Beach, SC every year. Sure the beach is great, and the house we rent is on the beach. But what keeps us from exploring other places is the thought of not eating at Fat Jack's. When we are in the area for that one week out of the year, every night, except Monday because they are closed, we dine at Fat Jack's! Who wants to cook on vacation?

Good casual place for wings. Best wings on the south end. A bit loud sometimes with the families and kids but everyone is having a great time. Relax and enjoy the great wings and a cold beer.

I have been eating at Fat Jack's for years now, ever since they were up in the Arrowhead section of North Myrtle Beach. I live in MD, and I look forward to this restaurant every year. I've even contemplated taking a weekend vacation just to go eat their wings - they are the BEST!! We've made friends with the owners, and we get impeccable service. The food is delicious, and the ceiling is totally cool. It is a mom and pop place, not a chain restaurant - i've recommended this place to EVERYONE!!

Wings and Hamburger Plates were excellent. Family atmosphere except we did not have to clean table or wash dishes. Service was above average, but even if we had to wait there are two pin-up style guys working there that we would have been willing to wait for. A great feature was there was no hurry to rush us out the door when we were finished.

These are wings I crave every couple of weeks or so. They have a large number of flavors. My fave is the House flavor, kinda sweet and tangy. Other great ones include Cajun, Teriyaki, Texas Gold, Barbecue, Garlic Parmesan. For the purists there are hot ones - even one called Kamikazee crusted with crushed red pepper. The wings aren't breaded, but are crispy. If you like blue cheese with your wings, they make their own and it's to die for. Great German beers are on tap, plus some local brews. If you don't like wings, the menu has plenty of other great sandwiches, soups and entrees. It's a real locals' hangout.

Fat Jack's chicken wings are great, if you ever get them. And don't even bother ordering a drink unless you work there and can serve it to yourself (and refill it as well). The noise level is great, you can hear a pin drop when the servers aren't complaining about their jobs. Leave immediately if your server voices the words, "Hellllo, I'm Russel.". Just leave, you don't know what you are getting into.

A great place for wings. A real nice mom and pop like place to eat. You can get a beer with your wings. They also have a lot of other things on the menu. Very casual place.
