It was our second anniversary and we wanted to go where we had our night before the wedding dinner. The food and service were excellent (especially Sammie). The only thing I would recommend is to get your website menu and prices to match the actual menu. We went there for lobster and yet it was not on the menu in house, just the website. There is a large discrepancy in website prices and in-house menu.

They are taking CoVid safety seriously which we appreciate. Sat outside with lots of space and masks required indoors for everyone. Excellent

We ordered fish dip, which my husband enjoyed, a Ceasar with Chicken which was tasty. The Brown bread is worth a return trip !! Our server was very professional and attentive.
Would recommend this restaurant for the food, service and of course, the view.

We wanted to celebrate our Anniversary at Jack Dusty as we had been very happy with their food in the past. Upon entering the restaurant decor seemed tired and worn. Obviously they rely upon the good view only. I have to say I was disappointed by the whole experience. The food was hardly memorable as it had been previously. The highlights of the meal were their signature brown bread and the crabmeat with fried green tomatoes. The mains were just average. Husband's steak was tough and my shrimp and grits were hardly anything to write home about. Our waiter though friendly must have been a rookie. After bringing our bottle of wine and pouring it initially he never came back to pour more. Basically we had to help ourselves. Even though the hostess had congratulated our special day when we had arrived in the restaurant, the kitchen never sent a complimentary small dessert with the writing Happy Anniversary. It was pretty disappointing.

Outdoor dining feels comfortable in this time of pandemic. Music was a little too loud, but they turned it down. Food is always great. just a nice place to eat. Not inexpensive

We had advised that we were celebrating a wedding anniversary, and everyone including the bus boy, congratulated us. All part of a very attentive evening. Mike our server was excellent, and the outdoor setting was superb. We look forward to returning to Jack Dusty’s

We really enjoyed our dinner on last Monday evening. We sat outside and enjoyed perfect weather. We started by splitting the Ceviche. It was good but not great. Needed more heat. My wife had the Cioppino; it was terrific. I had the Blackened Grouper. It was excellent. The service was terrific too. This is one of Sarasota’s nicest restaurants.

First time here even though we’ve been in the Sarasota area for over 25 years. Everything about it was pure Ritz quality of service, ambiance and class. Shrimp and grits rivaled anything we’ve had in New Orleans and my dirty martini was one of the next. Top notch chef and mixologist and the wait staff has impeccable timing! You must go here. We are. Again. And again.
