We take the Marina Jack cruise once a year. The food is pretty good and the views are not to be missed. The boat has a shallow displacement hull, so avoid windy and choppy days for the best ride. The meal is served buffet style. There are usually two salad options to start. Proteins are usually one light fish, one... More

We enjoyed relaxing at this excellent retaurant overlooking the inter-coastal waterway of Sarasota. It is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a good glass of wine and delcious dinner. They have an extensive menu and you will have a variety of offerings as well as a beautiful view here! I highly recommend Marina Jack II.

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 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
