Our group of 5 girls wanted to do something different for our annual trip to Sarasota. I researched the Marina Jack II and suggested this as our night out and got high fives all around when we were done! The food was amazing. The service was friendly and professional. My friend lost a charm off her Pandora bracelet. We alerted... More

The Marina Jack II is comfortable, conversation easy and the food is surprisingly good. No live "Parrothead" music, but the atmosphere is very pleasant. Personally, I prefer an outdoors feel, with the sun and breeze on my face, but this was a very nice experience, particularly since the rainy weather cancelled the more austere option of a sunset cruise on...

When we went on the sunset dinner cruise, there were only 13 of us so it was uncrowded. The ship went out under the Ringling bridge and then took us around the beachfront properties around several keys. The clouds obscured the sunset. The dinner was great. Salad, various breads, green beans, terrific mashed potatoes, lemon salmon, and a slice of... More

I have gone there several times when in Sarasota. The place is clean and dancing with a band. Wonderful experience whether on a boat or just dropping by.

My husband and our 2 year old daughter went on a lunch cruise. The food was great!!! Desert was amazing. The cruise ship was nice and had an air conditioned part. You could also go out on the deck. The views were spectacular. We also enjoyed the pina coladas! We would definitely go on another cruise with Marina Jack!!!!!

My husband and I took a sunset dinner cruise on the Marina Jack II as part of our honeymoon. Overall we loved it and it was very relaxing. We left at 7pm and got back at 9pm. We saw a beautiful sunset and the crew was very friendly. They served a full dinner consisting of salad, rolls, mashed potatoes, vegetables,... More

My wife and I went on the Marina Jack II sunset dinner cruise and were very impressed. I was expecting the food to be just average and the view to be the main attraction to this dinner cruise. I was wrong. The food was absolutely delicious! The salad was fresh and crisp with a tasty ranch dressing. For the main... More

I not only want to review the late afternoon cruise on the Marina Jack II, I also want to review the banquet dockside that followed the cruise. Most of all, I want to give accolades to Anne Camire and the Marina Jack staff who helped us plan and execute a wonderfully successful party for 72 people recognizing my mother-in-law's 100th...

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
