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

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
