21 friends gathered for pre theatre dinner on a busy Friday night. Tables ready at reservation time. Thank you, Ann. Service was attentive and professional. Thanks Enden. Wide variety of dinners-mussels, tuna, shrimp, lamb, trout, grouper-and each was as delicious as the other. Cold Salads and hot chowders were wonderful. Servings are plentiful and presentation beautiful. A star on Sarasota's... More

It is the best happy hour in Sarasota with quality food offered and the best view on the water. Our waiter Ricky was efficient and pleasant. Nice experience. Returned three times.

Went on a Sunday night mid March with 3 couples. We had a reservation for the restaurant upstairs and I'm glad we did because the place was packed! They have valet parking which we took advantage of. We had a table by the window which was nice and I'd ask for it again. We ordered a variety of dishes and... More

We started out drinking and turned into eating. The food was bar food quality, nothing to write home about but edible. The help at the hostess desk and the table were both a little short and\or hard to understand. We showed up during the boat show, so perhaps they were overwhelmed, but we had known of the show for a... More

We were lucky to have the best seat in the outside area. Food was really good too but the service was terrible. We waited such a long time to order and even longer for our food. Such a shame. The live music was beautiful and really fitted the atmosphere and views

This was a most unpleasant dining experience for 7 people. The appetizers are all over $15.00 and the entrees that we chose were between $32 & $45. The grouper was about $42.00 which was supposed to be "Oscar" with wilted asparagus, frozen crab pieces, and no sauce so the fish was dry. No veg or salad included. The scallops from... More

Four of us went to the Sunshine Patio for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it...not only for the scenic setting, but also the excellent food. I ordered the spinach salad and a Cuban sandwich and I can truthfully say it was the best ever...Cuban was better than the Columbia restaurant. The spinach salad was superb and was large enough to serve... More

My wife and I were on vacation and stopped at Marina Jack for lunch. It was a gorgeous, sunny day, and it was busy, but we were able to find an open table outside on the deck overlooking the water. My wife had Mahi Taco's and I opted for a chicken wrap. She is still raving about the fish taco's,... More
