Good view good food

The view is awesome out on the water. Had some live music. The food was good. About $15 for sandwich/wrap and side so a little pricey but overall good.

Great place downtown Sarasota to sit on the water have some drinks and bar snacks and live music. Valet parking is nice and drinks made well.... Food is pre made however the raps are nice . All served in baskets and friendly Florida service. This is a fun place to spend happy hour at.

Always stop here for a grouper sandwich lunch when down by the bay. Love dining on the bay while watching all the boats go past. Take an after meal walk around the marina to see the unbelievable yachts.

We went to this restaurant today for a couple family birthdays. We were early so they let us sit upstairs anyway and wait for the rest of our party. The view is really great. You see the bay and all the boats. We finally ordered and all was going well. We had nine people. They brought the food and then... More

Good food, perfect views, great service at a fair price. My family enjoyed our 2 meals here when staying in the Longboat Key area. Definitely recommended for casual dinning and a quite beer.

Located on the water. Two seating areas and two menus A less formal covered outside area and a nicer second floor inside dining areas. Views are great in both areas. Food is very good but not extraordinary. You pay for the view.

A Beautiful Dinning experience. Full windows from floor to ceilings, and an open Bar Upstairs and out side on the deck. You can eat at this Restaurant or go out on the Boat and have dinner on it. Which ever you decide. You are going to love it.

Very average food which is expensive and this is due to the restaurant's location. And that's about it really.

Today was a perfect day to have lunch at Marina Jack! Sitting on the deck looking at the boats and feeling the sunshine was so relaxing. We had a cool drink then chose a big salad and wonderful Lobster Nachos . Service was quick and food hit the spot. Love Marina Jack.... Visitors really need to enjoy this beautiful restaurant....

Our first visit was on a Saturday afternoon by accident and it just happened to be a fish weigh in day which us Canadians had never seen before. We sat right down on the water and watched this event unfold. It was super busy and I did not think there were enough staff but the service we got was ok.... More
