    Within walking distance! A favorite for Happy Hour, Dinner and Sunset. Dance to live music surrounded my million dollar yachts. Enjoy the view of the Bay, and maybe catch a glimpse of dolphin frolicking nearby.
    Also, checkout O’Leary’s Tiki Bar for more waterviews, bands, drinks and food.
    There's a lovely waterfront Park with walking trails, boat rentals, fishing charters. Very active area for morning walkers and doggie friendly.

    Fun, Fun, Fun, great seafood, music, and dancing while overlooking the beautiful bay! My favorite time to visit Marina Jacks is in the late afternoon when I can sip a cocktail, watch the sunset, enjoy the live music, and the company of my family and friends - it can't be beat!

    This a fabulous outdoor area with a walking and biking path, marina, playground, and location for renting water sport equipment. You can book a trip around the bay on the casual LeBarge or an evening dinner experience on Marina Jack II. For spectacular sunset views you can enjoy a cocktail outside at Marina Jacks (We don't necessarily recommend the food!). You can enjoy a burger and live music at O'Leary's Tiki Hut as you watch the sailboats and yachts go by.

    An excellent restaurant for lunch or a nice dinner overlooking Sarasota Harbor. Very good service, great food and a wonderful view.

    Watch the sun go down while having a drink or meal here. Take a sunset cruise or a harbour cruise at any time of day.
    Often there are special events which are fun to attend.

    Sarasota’s Marina Jack Portside Patio Rest Needs a ‘Bar Rescue”, Bad Food and Terrible Drinks. Bar Rescue | Nightlife Expert Jon Taffer Fixes Bars, Clubs and maybe even Sarasota’s Marina Jack Portside Patio Rest. Sarasota’s Marina Jack Portside Patio Rest Needs a ‘Bar Rescue”, with bad food and terrible drinks. This Fathers Day, I was supposedly treated to drinks and lunch at Sarasota’s Marina Jack Portside Patio Rest, wow what a mistake!

    One of my favorite places to go to in downtown Sarasota.. I always go back to sit on the deck.. watch the boats go in and out.. and eat by the salty water. Food is pretty good.. but the view is amazing.

    Not impressed with dinner, but lunch outside in the bay can't be beat! Gorgeous!
