Located in downtown Sarasota, has been the premier deep sea water marina as well as a dining destination. The deep six lounge and piano bar is open daily were patrons can enjoy a drink washing the sunset along with nice music. Enjoyable

Amazing view from the restaurant. Many windows. Attended a banquet and the food was flavor free. The service was ok. Go for the view.

We had been wanting to try this place so finally did. The service was very good and the bay view very pretty. The food we were not impressed with. Started with the homemade potato chips topped with queso, sour cream, tomatoes & black olives. The chips lacked flavor & were not salted or seasoned. Ordered the BLT wrap which came... More

Popped in for a quick drink. It's not a large place but the staff are attentive. It's right next too a beautiful marina where you can walk past the boats, kids can play in a play area and there is a bar. Lovely pleasant area.

In all fairness we only came for drinks and snacks. The fries are good. The soup was OK. Drinks were not very strong. The location is fantastic with many tables next to the window and lots of outdoor seating.

It is nice to sit on the outside patio when the weather is not too hot and look out at the water. That is about the best thing I have to say about lunch here. Have eaten here twice - once during the winter tourist time and again just now in July, I would say I'm not impressed by the... More

A complete entertainment area. Great outdoor bar areas and three different levels of dining choices. Live music daily. Don't miss this exciting and fun place to enjoy watching the many boats, yachts and sailboats coming and going.

With family in town, Marina Jacks was a logical choice. Eating on a picnic table right on the waters edge, looking at a spectacular view of Sarasota Bay was something they really enjoyed. Weekends can be tough with long lines to the register to place your order. The menu is beach fare with cold beer available. The atmosphere makes this... More

We have been here many times and knew it would fit the bill....The great thing about Marina Jack is it's 3 restaurants in one....A great open bar with plenty of... More

Ate here last night. Within one hour of eating, I was sick. I Have been sick for 24 hours so far. Stay far away. Staff is rude and complained to each other the whole time we were seated. Place is old and is stuck in the 80's.
