We have not used this Restaurant in years because we had such a bad meal there we vowed never to return. A few days ago we took a group of friends there to see if we would be pleasantly surprised but sadly. The food was not good at all and mine was just thrown on a plate the salad looked... More

We had a party of 4 and all of us ordered different things on the dinner menu with a couple of apps. All the dishes were plated nicely and delicious. Our entrees included The Crusted Grouper, Braised Lamb, Scallops and the Filet. The service was also very good and the restaurant offers valet parking. We will definitely visit again soon.... More

Stopped in for a bite to eat and a cocktail. Three bartenders on duty. After being ignored for over 5 minutes, finally got a bartender's attention. Ordered drinks. Bartender left before we could ask for a menu. After 10 more minutes had to flag him down in order to ask for menu. Fifteen more minutes and still no service. Paid... More

The view of course is fantastic. I used to go there back in the day when it was a fine place to eat and drink. It has turned into a run of the mill eatery with a nice view. Food ok. Nothing exclusive about it. Not at all like I remember.

Scheduled this before heading to Florida and it was terrific!! I suppose a lot depends on the weather, as we postponed from a rainy windy evening to the next night which was warm and clear. Beautiful boat, decent food, gorgeous views, reasonable prices, sort of ($10 drinks??) We were on vacation and not counting pennies so it was all good.... More

I recently had lunch here and was very pleased with the grouper sandwich. It was fresh, cooked perfect, huge portion, and the fries were amazing too. To top it off, they had a macadamia nut ice cream cake. I would fly down there right now just for that and their grouper! Beautiful view and a relaxing atmosphere.

Some people may be unaware you have different dining options at Marina Jack, and you can choose based on your mood or dining choices. We originally planned to dine in the new patio for a casual afternoon snack, but my dining partners wanted more quiet surroundings to chat. Rather than opt for the more formal dining upstairs, we chose the... More

I just love this place on a Sunday. I reside in Orlando, but I don't mind the drive ( so sue me! ) for great food, service, striking views, fun ambience & amazing live music. By the way, everyone also dance ... On top of that: the key lime pie is just perfect...
