It was a lovely evening at Jack Dusty. We were especially impressed with the birthday dessert!!! The waiter was amazing have recommendations and was attentive to our needs. Overall a wonderful night
Top notch food, ambience and service! Very highly recommended!
This was one of the best restaurants I’ve been too! So accommodating for our post-wedding brunch.
It was our 10 anniversary and the staff could have treated us more special. Bus boys, waiters and the front deck hostess greeted us with congratulations and treated us to complimentary drinks and desserts. It was very special, would highly recommend them for any special occasion.
Ambiance was great and good setting. Our server Mike was probably the best service we’ve had at a restaurant other than Ruth Chris. Highly recommend Mike and this restaurant!
Exceptional food and service always. A reliable option every time!
Great kitchen and great service! In sitting outside, the overall ambiance was pleasant and refreshing. With the water, marina and lush green grounds, you forget where you’re at for a bit.
Birthday celebrations of friends
Lovely view of water sitting outside. Matthew was our server and he was terrific. Food was very good.
We were welcomed and made to feel special for our evening at Jack Dusty. Every staff member was pleasant and appeared to really enjoy their work. A cocktail at the lively bar was made special by Andrea with a lesson on ice cubes. It was a stormy night but the wide portico allowed for a dry dinner table outside overlooking the lagoon. Each course was presented nicely and delicious. The ceviche very fresh and the flank steak seasoned and cooked perfectly. The chicken was also done very well. Strawberry spoon cake came with a candle for birthday celebration. A perfect place to celebrate a special day.
Very good. I had grouper and side salad. Fun place to people watch.
Great service. Food tasty and ample. Bar noise a bit loud but tolerable.
We were staying at the hotel, so it was an easy choice. The food was amazing ... lots of fresh specials. And if you like Crafted Cocktails, this is the place for you. Very active bar scene in the evening.
Excellent food, excellent service - am I missing anything? 🎩
Great place, family friendly and fresh simple menu.
Jack Dustys is one of my favorite restaurants in Sarasota. The food is always excellent and the service unrivaled.
My last visit we dined inside on a Saturday night. Live music was playing and it was an enjoyable evening. At times it was very loud as there were several tables celebrating birthdays. However, It did not take away from the excellent meal and stellar service one always receives and dining at Jack Dustys.
Great patio dining with wonderful service. Would be perfect if they added guitar music for the weeknights!
Food is outstanding! Great service and atmosphere!
First time here - all first-rate - food, service and setting. Ritz-Carlton always a safe bet, and didn’t disappoint!
Was celebrating birthday with my girlfriends last night. Our waiter Jorge went above and beyond to make it extra special and memorable for us. We were very well taken care of and I would highly recommend this place, for the excellent service first of all and gorgeous evening view if you sit outside.
Rather disappointing experience. The place looks and feels like a bland, boring and sad canteen. The service was ok, the food pretty much reflected the atmosphere: tasteless and boring. Total waste of money and time! While making reservations, we were asked if that would be a special occasion and we checked the box for Anniversary but that was also overlooked and nothing happened, not that we were expecting a preferential treatment but would be nice if had just a better table reserved. The fist and last time for sure!
Food was delicious. The bread in a tin can is odd and not that great. The latte was delicious and really great size. Overall, delicious food.
The Good, Bad and the Ugly (not listed in that order:)
The fish dip gets smaller as do the quality of crackers. The drinks were delicious and my favorite in the entire Sarasota area. Service was perfunctory. The desserts were impressive!
We were place at a table near the entrance to the dining area. People were using it to get to the pool. Not exactly elegant. My dish was over salted.
Spent the evening dining out on the beautiful balcony. Service was good & our food was fantastic. Everything was brought in a timely manner & the live music was delightful.
Great spot to grab a drink. The food underwhelmed this time around. Steak was over cooked, charcuterie board was uninspired and lacking, and the soup was not great or as advertised. Drinks were very good, and I have had great food here before, but this time around left a lot to be desired, especially for the price.
Always special to eat at the Ritz and my birthday lunch was great overall. Food was terrific but service was very slow and waiter was not at all friendly or welcoming…maybe because it was a Saturday? Or maybe they were understaffed?
The cocktails alone make this place worth the visit!
Garrett was the best waiter ever, attentive, fun stories, loved him. The smoked fish dip was fantastic, pure fish unlike other places that use a lot of cream for filler. The crackers I'd buy in a market for every day eating, too!
It was my fiancé’s 30th birthday and everyone made the day amazing and special. I requested a spot with the best view of the water they could give me and they delivered. Amazing food, amazing atmosphere and we loved the live music. Thank you so much for helping me make his birthday special!
Certainly not what we expected with a restaurant associated with the Ritz.
Celebrated the morning after my bday here for brunch
While the service was perfect and the view is relaxing, the food falls to a distant third. Likely best left to tourists in a rush to feed the family.
Great food and atmosphere with excellent service
5 stars - Phenomenal!
Servers were very attentive, and prices reasonable for high quality food and service.
Beautiful view from the patio overlooking the marina for dinner.
Everything from the appetizer to dessert was delicious.
Highly recommend for a date night!
Excellent lunch with a gorgeous view. Will most certainly return.
Ask for John as your server, then have the best meal, and the best time!
Our server was great . Food was delicious.
