Jack Dusty Coastal Cuisine and Crafted Cocktails
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.
Meal was very good and they didn’t rush us at all. Very pleasant evening...
They are taking CoVid safety seriously which we appreciate. Sat outside with lots of space and masks required indoors for everyone. Excellent
Our server John was the best part about our experience at this restaurant. Food was average but he was super attentive, friendly and made sure we had what we needed.
Great food. Waiter messed up our order but fixed it.
All around a great experience. Fun vibe!
Everything was perfect. The food, the service and the ambiance. We booked another reservation while we were still sitting at the table.
We celebrate our anniversary every year at Jack Dusty. Love the atmosphere and the food, and service is always attentive without being intrusive. An evening we always look forward to.
Excellent food and service
It's really always such a wonderful experience. Great service and a beautiful view.
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.
Great setting outside. Food was excellent!
Delicious food and outstanding service.
Very pleasant!!! Nice service, good bar selection!
amazing food and service. We went for our anniversary and were treated with such care. would recommend! Wine, food, dessert and service was amazing!
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.
Andy provided excellent service!
Thsnks for a great rvening of fine good and service.
It is in the marina Ritz Carlton Hotel and the restaurant’s view is the marina. We ate outside and the service was immaculate, the food was outstanding and we had a great time.
Food was very good, service was great. Dessert was amazing. It was a perfect birthday lunch for my mom. We are looking forward to the regular menu coming back.
Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Terrific food. The siren specialty cocktail is a must!!
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.
The attention to details is amazing 😉 and quality of food 🥘 I love it
This is our second trip to Sarasota and we totally recommend eating here! Food is great!!
Food is phenomenal! The drinks are unique and tasty. It's pricey but the water view is great, service superb and food is of the highest quality. All worth the price of admission.
Wonderful food and great service
Excellent service, the bread was terrific and memorable.
Jeremy (our server) was AMAZING!!!
This was honestly one of the best restaurants I’ve been to. The food was divine , I highly recommend.
We went out for my girlfriends birthday and had a fabulous time! Staff was great at table and bar and made our experience perfect! We started with a Siren, which was delicious and huge so we shared! The Ahi Tuna, Fried green tomatoes with crab and fries for an app! Soooo delicious and then we all got steak! It was an excellent dinner and i would definitely recommend
The view is wonderful, the service just right, and the food was great! Wonderful night!
Thank you for Everything, was great and sensational services, nice place, the waiters are excellent and very friendly, special Mr Peru, this guy was very nice 👍, thank you 😊.
The service was friendly and efficient. Breakfast was very good and the restaurant made sure masks and self-distancing was in place so customers can enjoy their dining. Five stars for keeping us safe!!
Service was excellent; the staff was very attentive, accommodating, and friendly. We ate at Jack Dusty’s 3 times during our stay, and each time we enjoyed our meals. We had guests join us, too, and they thoroughly enjoyed their experience.
Great food, good atmosphere, one of our favorites
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.
Garrett, our server is #1 for customer experience! Food was great, as usaual.
Cocktails were fabulous. A must try- SIREN.❤❤
