The boat was not packed which was nice although the start of the trip coincided with the end of the Holland/Argentina World Cup match so those upstairs were making quite a racket but once that finished everyone settled down for the cruise. The food served was better than average and you could, if you wanted have seconds. The waiting staff... More

Enjoyed the sunset cruise immensely. It was a sunset cruise, which is probably why there was no info given over the PA, but might have been nice at least on one of the levels.

My wife and I took our first dinner cruise on the Marina Jack II on our wedding day. We are boaters ourselves and enjoyed someone driving us around and having a wonderful buffet, to boot! The crew is very helpful and the food was delicious. It is a bit tough with plate in hand to navigate the upstairs steps but... More

Marina Jacks occupies a strategic place on the Sarasota waterfront. The food is pricey but the wine list is superb and the food is good.

Brought clients to dinner here and was majorly unimpressed. Waiter (Fabio) gave very poor service, uniterested in helping, hard to find, etc. And the food (Bouilabasse) which they touted quite highly had 2 overcooked shrimp and 1 scallop in it - and was quite spicy. Too many better options around town (and at St Armands Circle) - all with much... More

We just got back from our first trip to Siesta Key Florida. While there we went to dinner at the Marina. We originally wanted to be outside on the water but talked ourselves into going inside and upstairs to the "Dining Room". Well I have to say that it was the best decision we made all week. Our server Mark... More

Everyone enjoyed the boat ride, the interesting and educational narration, the beautiful scenery, the excellent service, and the food. Not a single complaint from anyone. Reservations and ticketing were handled professionally by Anne and complimentary valet parking was a perfect solution to a very busy marina on a Saturday afternoon. Excellent value -price included the scenic cruise and a great... More

The view makes it worth while to go there, but don't expect exciting or innovative cuisine. Because of its location, it is a favorite with visitors.
