In for lunch with our Grand Kids, and everyone had a fine meal. Chicken Fingers for the "littles" and a big cheeseburger for me and a seafood bisque soup and sandwich for my wife. Tons of french fries appeared with our order, and the "littles" made fast work finishing them off--not eating them exactly, but feeding the birds who would... More

On the water with great Jazz, watch the boats come in then go for a walk in the park that is attached. This is located on the bay side with fantastic sunsets. Place is always packed and the food is excellent for lunch or dinner. We always have lunch or dinner here every time we visit.

This restaurant has Valet parking and expensive meals inside, or affordable bar menu while you eat by the wharf.

Visiting Sarasota on business and an extra day for sight seeing. 90 degree humidity and 90 degrees. The restaurant is obviously attempting to make up for sales because they have reserved all up-front parking for valet spaces. I've never seen anything like it. Why do you need valet parking for a biker bar atmosphere cafe, on the ocean! Pros: 1.... More

Every aspect of our entire experience at Marina Jack was perfection. From the moment we entered we were warmly greeted & guided to our table by the Director of Operations Evan Araujo. He even stopped by to check on us periodically. In fact the entire staff at Marina Jack was helpful, professional & very attentive. None more so than our... More
