Nice place, typical classic Florida setting, good food. Right in the middle of town so the views are fantastic.

We love to go here for lunch, dinner or just to sit outside and watch the boating activity. You will get excellent food no matter what time of day! It's a special place to dine with friends and family! Everyone has their favorite foods!

What may have been a good place at one time lacks the luster of what once probably was...now just fried food and watching old haggard drunks try to relive tier glory days...

Outside seating to enjoy watching the boats. Drinks were good and reasonable. The food being served looked good, but we were just there for a relaxing drink in the sunshine.

The views are breathtaking and the service is always attentive. We ate in the bar and our meals were very good. We moved to the outside patio to enjoy after dinner drinks and the music. Definitely entertaining. The only negative aspect is we wish they had some occasional new appetizers and entrees to choose from. Other than that another totally... More

Loved our food and the ambience outside is just wonderful. You have options for inside seating as well as formal dining upstairs, but we just love the view. Service was slow and that's why I have held back a star.

I love Marina Jacks. The food is good but nothing to write home about. The view of the marina and yachts is amazing and makes up for it. I've been to Marina jacks at least a dozen times and my only complaint is the margaritas from the outside bar margarita machine are Nasty! Have the bartender mix you up a... More

Food was better than decent, but it didn't matter since the view while dining outside is spectacular. Problem with food is that by the time it reached our table it was cold. Service was good. Would go back again.

We cruised as part of a fairly large group. The evening was well-managed from start to finish, about 2+ hours. Minuses were overcrowded-ness, noisy, cramped seating and the sad prime rib offering as one of two entrees. Buffet Meal was available only on the lower deck so upper deck guests had to wait until all lower deck diners were served... More

Great views and surprisingly good food. I would recommend for a special treat and tourists. Pricey but it's more than dinner.
