Beautiful setting, but the food was very average. $164 lunch tab for four people without cocktails. I get that it is the Ritz, but if I am paying a premium for food I would at least like it to be amazing.
Service was very slow. It was raining and we had to ask 3 times to move to a table away from being poured on.
Stayed at the hotel for 4 days. Breakfast was always nice. The one night I ate there, they wouldn’t accommodate my guest with severe hearing loss with an outdoor table because they said they were full. The waitress rushed us through dinner. There were two lovely outdoor tables that never were used the whole time we ate.
Nice cocktails and beautiful views. Go for the ambiance not for food... it’s average.
We had a table outside for an Easter dinner, and both the food and service were outstanding! We can’t wait to go back and dine again!
I live in Sarasota and Jack Dusty is where I go to feel like I’m on vacation in my hometown. The ambiance next to the water is beautiful and the service impeccable. Of course, the food is always a delicious treat as well.
The burger was good, but way overpriced at $20, and came with no mustard, mayo, or ketchup. We liked the bun especially. We were stuck at a small table next to a serving cart, when there were many empty tables, although we had made reservations. It was difficult to enjoy the view at that table.
Very disappointed.I expected much more from a dining experience at the Ritz Carlton casual or otherwise
The food, ambiance and service was excellent! I would highly recommend Jack Dusty’s!
The patio bar was somewhat attractive on the water but not very well arranged and surprisingly small. The service for drinks was slow. We ate in the outside area separate from the patio bar area. The service was very good as was the food. Highly recommend the ceviche as an app.
We visited Jack Dusty for our anniversary dinner and it was amazing. Five stars were easily earned by the staff, the ambiance, and the quality of the food. If you are looking for a nice night out with a spouse I would highly recommend choosing Jack Dusty.
the food and ambience was awesome but our server was rude.
Cenamos ceviche y un plato con camarones delicioso
Nice venue with indoor and outdoor seating. Service was prompt and friendly and the food was comprised of fresh ingredients and prepared well. Wine list is limited in quantity but a few good choices for red and white. Vibrant scene and the noise level picked up as the evening went on.
Nursing home food. Bland, salt less, and unimaginative menu.
AC is freezing
When you make your visitation make sure to specify where you want to sit there is a table overlooking a pool that is wonderful we had a hard time getting it as they said it was reserved. We sat there for 2 1/2 hours with no problem. The profiterole was fantastic the drink was wonderful the fried green tomatoes or so so
Such an exquisite dining experience! I had family in from NY and we decided to eat breakfast at the Ritz on the outdoor patio. So happy we did! Everything was outstanding! The food was presented beautifully, flavored perfectly and the portions were more than adequate. The service was impeccable. We all felt so special with the attention we received from the staff. Really friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating team. The view was lovely as well. The Ritz is truly a very special place. Thank you to all!!
Over all a great evening
Danielle is exceptional. She even remembered my usual cocktail order.
We have been to Jack Dusty multiple times. In the past few years, plus now(March 2021) The food is consistent, and never "hit and miss".
Most recently we had breakfast there; our waitress Jackie was phenomenal.
We had breakfast a couple days prior to that and had Lory as our waitress.
Both were so excellent and attentive to our needs
The food remains 4 star on my own 5 star scale(I love to cook so I'm always critical
of myself and what I eat).
At any rate, I HIGHLY recommend Jack Dusty's for breakfast , lunch or dinner.
We have NEVER encountered anyone on their staff who has been unpleasant, and my wife and I truly appreciate that.
Cuodos to Jack Dusty's staff and their cheerful , can do attitude.
Love Jack Dusty, and Lyle is the best waiter in the world
Service and food both outstanding as always
Great service and great atmosphere
This was a special birthday lunch for a friend with a chocolate dessert requested in writing as well as phone to the restaurant to confirm.
A key lime bar was delivered by the server with no explanation, shared $12. I emailed the manager who is reimbursing the charge which is nice, but does not recover the chocolateless birthday memory
The food and cocktails were amazing. Loved the smoking jacket experience. Waiter was great. I will definitely come back.
Wonderful atmosphere! Steven, our server on the patio was great. Great attention to detail and made us feel special. Class act!
My experience got off to a bad start when a gentleman who was standing at the front door and employed by the Ritz was harassing people about mask wearing as they walked in the front door. The mask mandate was lifted in FL but apparently Ritz/Marriott has strict guidelines that go against the governor's orders.
Also - the chicken dish on their menu has a strong curry taste but did not state it on the menu in the list of ingredients. It was horrible.
great experience, set ice was good and food was tasty.
Our Server, SAMMY was FANTASTIC! We will request her ALWAYS! The "Bread in a can" was a wonderful suprise!
Jack Dusty is always consistent with food presentation and service. We were able to eat safely and leisurely on the outside terrace.
Was treated rudely by the hostess when I requested to be seated outside. Was told I should have made that request in the notes on open table. Then, was ignored completely when we agreed to sit inside. Server didn’t know the specials, brought the wrong wine to the table after we had waited a significant amount of time for it, and spent too much time talking at our table. It was our evening to enjoy with old friends! Very, very disappointing especially for a Ritz Carlton property.
Top notch service, food and cocktails. Attentive to COVID precautions.
Have a great time. Would go back again for lunch. Menu is limited but the items delicious.
We stayed at the Ritz for our vacation. Ate breakfast every day, lunch and dinner once each. Amazing food, presentation and service. Highly recommend
We were celebrating my friend’s b’day. We are locals and had both been to Jack Dusty several times so we had certain expectations from our former positive experiences. Our waitress McKenzie had good timing (except when we first sat down and didn’t see her for a while) and was friendly and attentive. The setting on the terrace was relaxing with the lovely water view on a particularly beautiful day. Tables were an appropriate distance apart. Our disappointment arrived with the food. It just wasn’t up to the usual standards. My bread-less grouper sandwich (my request) was rather bland and the grouper didn’t taste as fresh as it should have with JD being right on the gulf. I ordered a side of the veggies which were also subpar, tasteless and a tad soggy (sautéed or roasted would have been my preference). My friend’s fries were quite good as was the key lime bar we shared for dessert. I know Jack Dusty can do better because I’ve had very good food there. I also thought their menu items were a bit uninspired maybe due to their whittled down choices as compared to our former dining experiences.
Casual and limited menu. Expensive (Orange juice $8). OK for family with kids and good bar.
This is a lovely setting, and the food and service are what you have been brought to expect at a Ritz. Outstanding place for lunch, and a lovely view.
