Went to the upstairs dining restaurant for a birthday celebration. The food was wonderful, presentation was beautiful, the service was great. The view was awesome. Would go again and not a restaurant to miss if you are in the Sarasota neighborhood

Hands down best view which made the food taste even better. Excellent steak and crab cake was delicious. We ate downstairs from Marina Jack which is more casual with same menu.

Food was good but it's the view you come for. Sit on the dock have a drink and listen to the water very relaxing. Has 3 separate restaurants so look at all 3 menus before sit down.

Great place to sit and have a midday cocktail with lunch and watch the boats. Food is generally good...some great, some ok. The location and atmosphere are the true selling points.

We chose to sit outside on the patio for lunch and drinks. Great location to watch the boats and enjoy the scenery. Glad to be in the covered area to avoid the midday sun. Got a high top table on the outskirts, so still had a very good view. The food and drinks were very good and reasonably priced. I... More

The crab martini salad was fantastic and the filet was excellent. Nice atmosphere and not uber expensive. Our group had a lot of fun
