Got the platter that had a little of everything on it and it was huge. Big enough for two people and great. Waiter was extremely nice and helpful with selections.

I ordered Chilean Sea Bass. It was not Chilean sea bass but some other cheap fish. First of all, it didn't look like it and absolutely didn't taste like!!! The only reason to go there is for the view

Yes, this place has a nice view, but for me, not worth paying for a view when there are many places one can go to see the view. This place obviously charges for their location. For me, I would prefer going some place where they act like they care you are there and get good food and reasonably priced. From... More

Of the three dining options at Marina Jacks, the Deep Six Lounge is my favorite by a mile. Eat out on the deck if the weather permits and my favorite dishes are the coconut shrimp and the Bunless Blu-cheese burger is the best burger you'll find. It's 10oz smothered in blu-cheese and mushrooms on a bed of green salad...out of... More

Visited here with two colleagues while in town for a conference and we had a nice evening. The atmosphere was great and I loved sitting on the deck during the sunset, but the service and food were only average... fairly slow and standard restaurant flavor. I'd be happy to return if I found myself in Sarasota again just because I... More

While taking a quick weekend trip to Sarasota, we stopped in at the marina to have dinner. The food was average and the restaurant was reminiscent of a 1970's country club. Having said that, the service was excellent and the view to die for. The best part of our visit was still to come. After dinner we went down to... More
