Had a great date night!. Bartender made a drink by request and seemed pleased to be asked--fun. Our waiter was attentive but not obtrusive and the menu was very nice. We had the Calamari as an appetizer and felt it was the best we've had...More

Every year we make a visit to Marina Jack. Whether you sit outside by the bar or inside, the setting is perfect. One highlight of the menu is the Parmesan cheese onion rings. They truly are to die for. We’ve had everything from the double...More

Beautiful water views and good food. Nice location to check out the boats, take a walk after dinner and take in the sunset. Check out the patio for happy hour specials.

This is a nice place to have a good time. We ate lunch outside on the patio and it was packed with a high noise factor - a testament to the good vibe. The food and ambience were both enjoyable. It is located in the...More
