I took my wife to this restaurant doer the first time. The view, the decor and the music was great. The service and the food was excellent. Very nice place for a date night or just happy hour.

Water view is the best thing about this venue.......food ok, service questionable and prices far beyond what they should be. Seems like a "tourist trap" to me because they capitalize on their great location on the water near downtown.

Went for a two hour lunchtime cruise. The ambiance in the restaurant was very good, and the surroundings first class. The buffet food was plentiful and the barman was a happy chap. The price was very reasonable and I would recommend it as value for money.

This was a very enjoyable lunch cruise. The boat was very clean, the food was very good and the service very good. We had very nice lunch as we cruised around Bird Key, Lido Key and surrounding area. I was reasonably priced. Ally took our reservation and followed through to make sure we knew the where and when of the... More

Entering Marina Jack, we noticed the fun and upbeat atmosphere in the downstairs bar/restaurant on the left, as we headed into the "smart" restaurant on the right (upstairs). The guy at the welcome desk as we entered was helpful and friendly. However, when we checked in upstairs, we realized we should have stayed downstairs - the hostess was unpleasant and... More

I ordered the bun-less bleu cheese burger salad, and it was delicious! Perfectly cooked burger and fresh greens topped with bleu cheese and sautéed mushrooms and tasty dressing. YUM. The highlight here is sitting in the unhurried atmosphere of the dining room overlooking the yachts and docks and waters of Sarasota. Ask for a window seat! In addition, the service... More

Well, almost. We have been dining at Marina Jack for a long time and never found a reason to be unhappy. Service is excellent, waiters are efficient and friendly. Food, whether fish or meat, is always outstanding. As to prices, you pay for what you get. The best time to go there is just before sunset and grab a window... More

I visited Marina Jack last week whilst on vacation. The restaurant has great views over the Harbour with tables on various to tiers; everyone get to see the view. The food could be best described a hearty. Presented like your mother would at home; meat & veg, 3 mounds. Desert was the same generous portions of fairly basic food. In... More
