We have eaten outside/downstairs several times and the food is typical for casual dining, not bad not great. Decided to have a date night with the hubby, wear a dress and heals so thought lets give upstairs a shot. While the food and ambiance is a step up from downstairs, we left with the same feelings we had with the more casual restaurants. Good service, decent wine selection(not huge like they advertise) and typical food for "older" Sarasota. My tuna entree was technically a salad but I really enjoyed and this was the star of the evening. My husbands ribeye was alright but we cook better at home and his sides were bland so he didn't touch them. Our crispy shrimp was cold and a bad version of bonefish's boom boom, go to bonefish instead. We had a nice table with a great view, server was very nice and my tuna portion was so big I was able to take home for lunch the next day but with all the great,innovative dining choices in Sarasota I can say we will not be back. This is a restaurant for the 60+ crowd

Good location for appetizers outside. We had dinner inside which was average. The flatbreads are very good though. Filet was done perfect but lacked anything else to accompany it. The ravioli dish ok. The saffron cream sauce was not very good. Place is a bit dated (common theme for Sarasota). Outside at sunset seems to be the draw here.

We sat outside on the Deck, right on the water, and watched the sun go down as we had adult refreshments. The outside deck is very casual so if you plan to sit outside you don't have to get dressed up. There was live music, reasonable prices, and the service was Great. I had the Cuban Sandwich and it was very tasty. The other guests were very happy with there food selections. They have Valet Parking. You can't go wrong here.

We had so much fun at Marina Jack this past Saturday night. We did something different and ate in the bar. Not only was the food excellent but the harbor view and live music were perfect. Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgable about the menu items. The restaurant was packed due to a fishing tournament, however service couldn't have been better! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to all my friends.
