Great location, good service, decent food

Great spot on the marina (which is obvious, given the name), and it seems like it was renovated very recently.

With reservations on a weekday, I thought we would get a table overlooking the water. Not this time, but everything else was superb. Expensive but worth it. The haddock special was a nice fillet with skewered meat as well. Two sides and a glass of their house chardonnay- Kendall Jackson- always a great choice. Sauce on the side, warm rolls... More

My family and I were there for Easter day brunch....expensive for a brunch 40.00/person did not include any drinks except for water. Tables were crammed in with no space to move. Plates were dirty if there were any available. there was no rhyme or reason to the layout of the buffet. the lines for the food were so long that... More

Went there for lunch, ate on the patio. They have improved their menu and the food was quite good. I had the double hamburger and it was cooked to my liking. The services was very friendly and attention. All in all it was a very nice dining experience.

Beautiful views of the harbor, especially around sunset., The food was good but nothing special. It is very expensive for what you get.

They have it all in one spot. The marina has so many things to offer and the different dinning rooms bring this place to another level. starting out with the casual room with entertainment and the view of all of the mega yachts. Then upstairs there is the fine dinning. Last but not least the Marina Jack boat, we have... More

Before last night we were here 32 years ago. We finally got around to going to Marina Jack because we wanted to see the new (to us) facility and especially the dining room. My wife had the braised beef and I had the potato crusted Grouper. Both meals were excellent. The service was professional. And since it was a beautiful... More

This is a nice marina... Always come here also for the 4th of July for the fireworks show (this is ground zero for Sarasota). The piano bar is fun, so stick around, sing some songs.
