We were invited by friends to go to Marina Jack's a few days ago and wetimed our visit for sunset. We were seated on the deck and the view was lovely. We stayed and had a bite to eat. The fare was upgraded bar food. I had a Cuban sandwich that was absolutely delicious. Everyone else enoyed their meal and... More

We had lunch there for the price everything was average or bow. Service, food, interior of restuarant needs a remodel. Only thing good was the view of the Bay.

Food...average. Service...average. If the atmosphere wasn't so lovely, wouldn't enjoy Marona Jacks so much. Expected more for the area.

We celebrated with a special meal at Marina Jack's. The service was excellent (Tim was our waiter--attentive yet discreet. Well done, Tim!). We ordered Chilean Sea Bass which was very good. The food presentation is very inviting. But what made the meal especially memorable was the beautiful setting overlooking the bay at sunset. We would definitely visit again.

Decided to try based on it being waterfront but I should have checked out trip advisor first, there are too many mixed reviews. I agree with the many who have said the views are beautiful, but that's it. Gazing out onto the harbor is wonderful but it can't make up for the poor food and exorbitant prices. The seafood was...

We had lunch here, sat outside in the sunshine watching the boats. The setting is lovely. Service was good and they were very accommodating in changing our order, adding things and changing things on the menu.

Nice view overlooking the Marina. Can be a bit warm at the sunny tables (inside the see-through shades can come down). We enjoyed the seafood salad croisand sandwich (lobster, shrimp scallops, mayo; $16.50) and the blackened (could be grilled/ fried) grouper sandwich ($18).

A friend and I met in Sarasota for lunch and a long overdue visit. We heard of Marina Jacks and since it was a convenient location we chose to go there. We were surprised to realize that valet parking was recommended, but later we decided that it was a good idea, and much faster than if we had spent time... More

We are boat people so we loved the marina from location and nautical vibe in this buzzy bar/restaurant. We went one evening mid week, and it wasn't busy. We went several times for lunch it was really good. Food was nice but not extra special, but you can't beat the location.
