Good food& service with a great view

I always come back to Marina Jack when in Sarasota. Nice place for Lunch. Great location right at the end of Main St, on the water. I treat this as a must every year.

Just wanted to come in for a drink and a bite to eat and found that the performer and a group of noisy guests seemed to be competing with each other for attention. Don't want to be a grouch about this and assign only two start, because in every other way the place seems to be OK. It just seemed... More

This is a great place to come and relax with great views of the bay. This could be a romantic spot to bring a date at night and as an added bonus they have live music. During the day this is a fun place to sit at lunch time to watch all the water activity. The food is good with... More

Always a nice time with an amazing view.. Dolphins not even extra! Easy parking and a nice stroll through the park or taking in the sights of the lovely yachts and sails!

Great place to bring out of town visitors. Great view of the bay and outdoor seating. We had the appetizers, wings, home made chips with all the toppings and quesadillas. They were all very good. I ordered a mudslide which was very tasty also. My sister in law had a almond joy ice cream drink that was also good. we... More

We visited Marina Jack for Lunch on a very busy day, driving in we took the offer for Valet parking by some very polite attendants. Once inside we were greeted nicely by the hostess and we were fortunate to get a waterfront table with a great view! Started our lunch with the jumbo shrimp cocktail, which were cooked just right,...

As a local, I have found that Marina Jack's is the perfect place to meet my visitors from out of town. They love the bay-side patio with a view of the docks. Their Bloody Mary's are exceptional, and I always order the Reuben….the best I've ever had. We usually like to sit out on the patio. Great service, great view,... More

Seated outside promptly, Rum runners very good. 2 had navy been soup, better than ever. I had Black and Blue tuna, always fabulous. Grouper bites a bit heavy on the fried coating but fresh and very good. 2 shared club sandwich, thick with ham and turkey. Service by John B. excellent, anticipated every desire.

We have eaten at marina jacks a few times but never upstairs in the fine dining room. Well, glad we did! Excellent service. Ask for a window seat table and you will enjoy the beautiful view of the yachts in the marina. Now for the food- delicious. Lobster carbonara, bisque,New Bedford scallops and the sea bass special-all delicious. This was... More
