Fresh Air Outdoor Casual Lunch

The open air patio right on the water was just the perfect place to have a casual lunch. Soup and sandwiches were delightful. The fries are sinfully good. Service was friendly and very attentive. Views were nice, atmosphere perfect.

Marina Jack's has several restaurants, but our favorite is the open air, downstairs casual restaurant. It's right on Sarasota Bay with great views and a great band nearly always, to encourage dancing. The service and food are very good. The upstairs restaurants are excellent. The views are even better. The food is high quality even if a bit pricy. Service... More

We love seafood and theirs is VERY fresh!! Sitting on the water looking out over a beautiful view is incredible. Food was great. Service was great. Our whole evening there was perfect! It is pricey, but worth it. Meals were $25-35.

We went with a group to celebrate an anniversary. The food was nothing special and very pricy. My plate was filled with mashed potatoes with a tiny piece of Sea Bass- the fish was good but I don't need 2 pounds of potatoes to go with it. The entire group was very disappointed and the price did not make up... More

Not the easiest place to get to in midday traffic, but well worth the trip. We met up with friends from Ohio that have recently moved down to warmer confines. We were here for so drinks and a nice seafood lunch. The grilled grouper sandwich was the choice if all 4 of us and we were not disappointed! Great food,... More

The restaurant sits right on the water at the Sarasota marina. We dined here for dinner and were able to watch the sunset over the water. The entire wall of the restaurant facing the water is windows, so you can see the water no matter where you sit. They have a wide variety of fresh seafood on their menu, and... More

Not the best seafood in town by far. The food and service is quite poor. The only thing going for it is the view, if your lucky to get a window table
