Sit outside, under the umbrellas and watch the busy pleasure craft docks hum with people enjoying themselves, motoring in and out. We stop by for pre dinner drinks and to cool off and relax.

Had a nice snack with friends. Sandwiches and Fries are very good. Waitress was very friendly and attentive even though she was quite busy with many tables.

After 10 seasons we enjoyed thoroughly our luncheon cruise aboard the Marina Jack II. The meal was excellent, wait staff Martha and Ashley very efficient and polite. A wonderful afternoon which we will definitely share with our next out of town visitors...

The food is good at Marina Jacks but no one can beat the view from the open air tables. I go every time I am in town. I took my Dad there several months ago and i couldn't get him to leave because he enjoyed looking out at the water so much. Great place to take guests.

Very relaxing place to walk along the pier and watch the boats travel in and out. Nice Tiki Bar for a relaxing meal and drink.

Lack of parking, Lack of seating, Lack of good service! With that said... The Deep Six Bar has some of the best AHI in Sarasota. We have a boat at MJ's if it was not for our boat being there we would stay away!

We were in a private room and had our own bar and menu. The filet was cooked to perfection and the desserts were luscious! Definitely a place to... More

My hubby and I truly enjoyed our dinner date on the Marina Jack II. The trip was lovely and relaxed, the food was wonderful, and the sunset (which I'm sure they orchestrated ;) was perfection. We were a party of just two, so we sat in a small dining room in the bow of the ship, whereas larger groups were... More

Both the lunch and dinner cruises are well worth the price. Tremendous food and the views and ride are perfect.
