An all around pleasant experience! We took this Luncheon Cruise with my parents (in their 80s) and adult family friends. The luncheon was very nice, especially the baked salmon, and the staff/service was good. We ate while enjoying the cruise around Sarasota Bay. The cruise was timed to be completed as the lunch was finished. While there is not much... More

The sunset cruise on the Marina Jack was well worth the price. We boarded at 6:30PM, left the marina by 7 and returned by 9. The food was banquet style and not outstanding by any means but very good. I do think the Key Lime Pie was the best I'd had on my entire trip! The sunset of course was... More

The boat leaves the harbor at 6:45pm and heads out into the bay rather quickly. Upon entering the boat we were directed to our table. Most of those on the boat were elderly couples and seemed like a larger tour of some kind which was nice to see, that is people enjoying their retirement. The table for two was big... More

Situated right off Sarasota Bay, this is a great place for casual dining and drinking. It's been recently remodeled which has improved the overall experience.

This dinner cruise was just perfect! A beautiful view of the Marina and the luxury homes along the shores. The prime rib and salmon dinner was delicious and the staff is nice as ever. This attraction would be enjoyed by all ages. The sunset was spectacular, we will definitely be making reservations again!

We loved Marina Jack. We moored the boat, had a few cocktails and a snack and watched the sun go down. It's a beautiful location and if you arrive by boat the day just can't get better. Highly recommend to all.

Great decor and a fun vibe. The perfect place to meet friends for a drink or simple meal. Live music sometimes too. It is fun to be right in the marina. Let the valet park your car! They make it so easy!
