Great wait staff. Nice variety of dishes and all well prepared. The views are terrific and the sunsets are beautiful. We have be coming to Marina Jacks for several years but the prices have escalated each year. I now believe that this venue is simply overpriced! We'll think twice before returning..............too sad.

We were coming from Ringling and headed to the theater. Needed a place to impress our friends with. It worked. Service good, view of Sarasota Bay spectacular. Oh yes, by the way, food was quite good too.

The food here is good! The view is excellent. We had a very nice casual lunch. My wife had a vegetarian wrap and loved it! Service was on point. I had seafood chowder which was mildly fishy and salty-not an unusual type of preparation but not to my taste. I had a fish sandwich that was ok. The other couple... More

Our party of 4 arrived at 5PM on a Sunday and we sat outside on the patio. Many tables were available for immediate seating. Our server greeted us 20 minutes later to take our drink and food order. Food was OK nothing outstanding. We never saw our server again during or after the meal. We had to ask for the... More

Excellent service, great food and wonderful view. There is valet parking which is $1 plus tip. Best Ruben and bean salad I have had in a long time.

We met some friends there and had an enjoyable lunch on the deck outside. The black bean burger was fabulous, the taco salad ok (no meat, so adding a chicken breast at $4 made it a less appealing value). Definitely a place to see and be seen. Prices are just a tad on the high side for the value. You're... More

The day was stellar, the beer was cold. Food on menu quite average. I was surprised to see many items with same title as Applebees. This is a very busy place, beautiful view on the water. Too bad that the lunch menu was a near flat line for choices. We split an app. of tuna slider for lack of choice.... More

You can't beat Marina Jack's for a waterfront dining experience. This Sarasota landmark continues to attract a crowd that wants to be seen as well as dine. The valet parking row looks like an showroom for exotic, expensive and fast cars. The dining areas range from outdoors and dockside to inside and linen. Most of the lunch crowd tends to... More
